Fire Emblem Heroes' 1.3.0 update has gone live to add some extra balance to the game's Arena. It looks as though Nintendo is listening to early complaints about the game's IAP system. This most recent update makes strides to improve player rewards and ensure fairness. Let's see what's new.

One of the biggest changes is the move from Rank Awards to Tier Rewards. Starting at Tier 4, players will begin receiving Orbs in addition to Hero Feathers. These rewards will improve as players work their way into higher tiers.

Starting with this latest update, players' Arena placement will be based on their rank within their own tier, and they can be promoted or demoted at the end of the season based on said rank. Update 1.3.0 also welcomes a few new maps with defensive terrain. Nintendo made some other smaller tweaks to the Training Tower's difficulty and some UI changes.

Nintendo really gets into the nitty gritty in their patch notes. If you'd like to read what's changed in all of the technical detail you can find the notes over on the game's website.
