From May 1 to 3, there will be several exclusive and time-limited in-game events[1] for even more players to join in the festivities. Star Protection[1] will ensure that players will not lose a star even if they suffer a loss in ranking mode, so you can keep on fighting to make it to the top, while Team Skin Sharing[1] will allow players to share their skins with teammates after matches to share the joy of seeing different heroes in different guises.

The 5v5 Fest Lucky Box[1] event will be ongoing as well from May 1 to 5, gifting AoV players the opportunity to obtain up to five different heroes of their choosing just by teaming up with others during the 5v5 Fest. All you have to do is add your selected heroes to the prize pool, team up and play games to earn wish tokens, and exchange those to obtain a random hero from the prize pool, it’s that easy!

The beginning of the 5v5 Fest on April 26 will mark the debut of a new hero, Yan, the talented painter of the Dragon Kingdom. As a tough warrior that is both quick and nimble on the battlefield, Yan can be inspired by his ultimate ability and enhance all of his skills. We encourage players to find more creative ways to use this new hero, helping Yan to overcome his creative blocks in the battles.

In addition, the latest version update of AoV will also be arriving on April 26, with key updates to the following: Moment Post Comment function and Spectate System.
