    Questions & Answers

    General Information

    When Will Call of Champions Be Released?
    • Call of Champions for iOS has been released! Get the app HERE
    • Call of Champions for Android will be released soon.


    Will Call of Champions Be Available To Both PC and Mobile Players?
    Call of Champions will ONLY be available to Mobile Devices that run either Android* or iOS*

    *OS compatibility, read below

    What Will Be The OS Compatibility of Call of Champions?
    (Since CoC is currently under Alpha Testing, this answer may change in the future)
    • Android OS: 4.1.2**
    • iOS: 8.0+


    **Currently Call of Champions BetaTest Client works on some Android OS 4.1.2 devices.

    What Is A MOBA?
    MOBA, or Multiplayer Online Battle Arena is a strategic Real-Time Strategy (RTS) PvP styled game, where there are two teams (depending on the game, it could be Player vs. Player, or Player vs. Bot), that must ultimately achieve a goal of destroying the other team's Base. Each team has defensive structures (which can be destroyed) that attack enemy team players, and "Minions" (Minions are weak mini-bots which have similar objectives as Players: Destroy defensive towers, kill enemy Minions and/or players, and help destroy the enemy Base)

    Is There Name Reserving In Call of Champions?
    • No, there will not be any name reserving in Call of Champions, meaning that more than one person can have the same name. (This prevents people from attempting to scam others by "selling names")
    • However, to distinguish between names, and prevent impersonation, each name is assigned a number symbol (#) followed by a four digit number
    • STS Staff members have a #0000 after their name, to prevent others from pretending to be them





    Testing

    Do I Need To Live Near Austin, Texas To Be Eligible To Be An Alpha Tester?
    No

    If I'm An External Person Applying For Being An Alpha Tester, what are the requirements?
    • Diamond tier League of Legends players or 4000+ MMR DotA players
    • Highly accomplished eSports athletes/ Twitch broadcasters


    How Long Is The Alpha Testing Expected To Last?
    Alpha will last approximately 2.5 months.

    Will private gameplay (unlisted on youtube) videos be viewable to give input on certain aspects of the game if people who were not accepted to play still want to give feed back on ability kits and such? League of Legends (Riot games) normally posts a pre-release information page on each new champion so players can review the kits and suggest adjustments even if they were not accepted to participate in the PBE (public beta environment).

    When Will Invites For Alpha Testers Be, Date Wise?
    Tier 1 Alpha Testers have been announced, Congrats to: Ravagerx, XGhostzX, Vystrich
    Tier 2 Alpha Testers have been announced, Congrats to: Opiest, DivineMustache, Iamregi, Jinathedemo, Glorbuk, Ruizhe
    Tier 3 Alpha Testers have been announced, Congrats to: Everyone who participated in the contest (Meaning, if you entered, you won Alpha entry!)

    How Can I Register To Enter The CoC Closed Beta?
    Sign up here: http://www.callofchampions.com/answerthecall

    I've Registered For CoC Closed Beta, But Where's My Invite Email?
    STS is letting people in in X amount of people per time, if you wait a bit, you will get your invite.

    After Beta Is Over, Will I Be Able To Keep My Progress?
    No, account data will be reset to defaults (meaning: 0/0 KDR, 0 Gold/Platinum, Reset to Starter Champions). This is to give everyone an even playing field, so that Alpha/Beta Testers will not have an advantage over the public players.

    Will Old BetaTesters Be Removed Once The Next Batch Is Let In?
    No

    Yes, this is correct. You level individual champions, and exp is rewarded after a match is over.

    Will this respec Cost,and what currency?
    There will be a cost for a respec, it is our intent though that players can respec fairly easily by playing the game.

    What will be every Champions Max level?
    The planned max level of Champions is level 10

    Will the alpha and beta players keep their testing accounts when the game starts, and therefore get a headstart?
    I can't give official word on this one yet!

    Will your win/loss and kill/Death ratio show?
    There will be plenty of stats recorded for players and we hope to show off some of these for your viewing pleasure. In terms of those who worry so much about their KDR, it will be important to take part in fights in order to win, so dying becomes much less important than winning the match in the first place!

    Will there be a team-chat during play, or how are you expecting random teams to make a strategy, or make friends that they add with the social feature of the game?
    This is one of our biggest challenges, and while we don't have a specific feature for me to brag about yet, we are very committed to making communication possible for players.

    The social part of the game seems a bit lacking, so you would have to get friends from other games or in real life to be in Your custom "teams" right?
    Just through playing by yourself, you will have the chance to meet new people who are your teammates or enemies! You'll be able to then add those players to your friends list and the magical spark of friendship can blossom!

    Is there a such thing as guilds so you could actually get a team that is not random?
    There will be ways for you to define who you play with, both on your team and your opposing team. This ability won't be available for all game modes though.



    Gameplay Information

    Will The Teams Be Balanced By Champion Level?
    Answer to this, I'm not sure, I will post the answer to this soon

    Will There Be Any Minions To Help Us?
    The function of minions have been replaced by an orb that players must push across the map

    How Can We Alert Danger, Or Ask For Support, Or Signal That I Am Going Somewhere?
    There is an Alert Icon located next to a player's skills, which the player can click, then tap and hold, then from the four options, drag your finger to that option, then release.

    Did You Consider The Fact That People With Bigger Screens (Ipad/tablet/galaxy note) Will Have A Fair Advantage On The People With Small Phones?
    I have ran many PvP (and PvBot) matches on both my iPad 2 (9.7 inch display), and Samsung GS3 (4.8 inch display), though skill buttons are smaller on smaller screened devices, its not a big difference, and not much of an advantage (I've won a lot of battles vs other players on my S3)

    Links To Vystirch's Very Well Written Weekly Issues Detailing Aspects Of The Game
    Call of Champion Chronicle - Issue 1 --> Function of the Orbs of Death
    Call of Champion Chronicle - Issue 2 --> Function of Power-Ups and Alter
    Call of Champion Chronicle - Issue 3 --> Function of Towers




    Miscellaneous Information

    Is There an In-Game Messaging System?
    Yes there is, you can pm your friends via the SOCIAL tab.
    And talk to your team members during match queueing

    Is There an In-Game Voice Chat System
    At the present moment, no.
    However, we (alpha/beta/STS Staff members) have been using DISCORD as our voice chat app.




    This is all for now, I will edit and add more Q/A's as soon as I find them.
    (also, if I missed anything, feel free to post them here)

    Thanks For Reading

    Question:
    Will the teams be balanced by champion level? I mean, a lvl10 champion can't play with lvl4 champion against lvl6 ones, right?

    Will there be any minions to help us?

    How can we alert danger, or ask for support, or signal that I am going somewhere?

    Did you consider the fact that people with bigger screens (Ipad/tablet/galaxy note) will have a fair advantage on the people with small phones?

    For communication, I suggest the auto-messaging, like SL.
    - I am coming
    - Support please
    - <target> top/middle/bottom
    - ready? (for ganging)
    - good game / Good job!

    Other suggestion:

    Enabling audio communication for private teams only. Random teams get a disabled audio communication.

    Call of Champions is a whole different game. AL is a MMORPG, CoC is a MOBA (pure PvP oriented game)

    During AlphaTesting, we suggested a Joystick, unfortunately iOS literature strongly discourages it
