JWA_Profile_Sil_Fukuimimus

JWA_Profile_Sil_Albertospinos

Albertospinos - Unique
Hybrid Components: Albertosaurus + Spinotasuchus

With its powerful build and aquatic hunting adaptations, Albertospinos is an ideal river predator. This superhybrid’s stripe patterns provide camouflage for rushing water, and groups of Albertospinos have even been observed battling for aquatic territories like modern crocodiles! Watch out for the ‘river dragon’ Albertospinos!

  • Albertospinos is a Fierce, Swap-In Wounder.

JWA_Profile_Sil_Troodoboa

Troodoboa - Unique
Hybrid Components: Majundaboa + Troodon

The feathered serpent Troodoboa is most active as a hunter during the rainy season. This may be one reason for its green coloration: camouflaging the creature against murky water and wet earth. Despite their brilliant color, it is the cranial feathers of the Troodoboa that have earned the creature its DPG nickname: ‘sky snake!’

  • Troodoboa is a Wildcard creature.

Ferocious Shield On Escape

Raking Counter Attack

Shielded Alert Strike

Group Cleansing Fatal Strike

Precise Distracting Impact

Ankylos lux - Apex
Hybrid Components: Ankylomoloch + Diorajasaur

Glowing spines decorate the cranium, spine and tail of the armored Ankylos lux. At night, congregations of these creatures have been observed using their bioluminescent tails to draw complex patterns in the air. More study is required to understand what these displays could signal.

  • Ankylos lux is a Resilient, Swap-in Tank.

Raking Counter Attack

Invincibility on Escape

Shielded Alert Stun

NEW TOURNAMENT RESTRICTIONS

More tournament types incoming!
We’ve added new rules, restrictions and even a new win condition. Check upcoming tournament communications for more specifics and get your team ready to crush.


NEW RAID BOSS

Update 2.13 brings one new Raid Boss!

  • Albertospinos will enter Raids on February 23rd. This will be replacing the Indoraptor Raid!

WHAT'S IMPROVED

Alliance Improvements

Finding allies in Jurassic World Alive just got easier!

Alliances can now be set to one of two join types in Alliance settings: ‘Open to all’ and ‘Request to Join.’

  • By default, newly created Alliances are now set ‘Open to All.’ This means anyone can join the Alliance as soon as they request it, as long as the Alliance is not at full capacity.
  • If Leaders set the Alliance to ‘Request to Join,’ new players need to be accepted by a Leader or Co-leader before joining.

The Suggested Alliances screen has also been optimized. We’ve added a button to more quickly join an Alliance here, and the Suggested Alliances list will now sort more Alliances with space for you to the top!

Finally, we’ve added an Info screen in Alliances to help explain different Alliance roles!


Early Game Arena Progression Improvements

To improve and freshen player experience, new exclusive and reward Incubator creatures have been added in Arenas 1-4. Head to the Battle menu to find out more!


WHAT'S FIXED

Bug Fixes & Known Issues

About 129 of those pesky bugs have been squashed in this 2.13 update! Here are a few of the most notable fixes that you are likely to enjoy:

  • The special objective for Course 4 - Mission 1 - Starter was impossible to obtain. This has now been fixed. The new objective is “Win with a Level 12 or higher creature on your team.”
  • The goat scent rewards for Course 22 - Mission 2 - Intermediate stated that they awarded more scents than the limit. This has been corrected.
  • In Course 13 - Mission 2 - Starter and Course 14 - Mission 2 - Starter, the special objective stated to defeat an ability with a specific ability rather than a creature. This has been fixed in both missions.
  • All special objectives that had specific team requirements did not mention that those were to have that exact team composition. We have fixed that.
  • The difference between a Restricted slot and a Recommended slot during teambuilding for missions was not clear enough. We have added headers to ensure each slot is more easily identifiable.
  • In multiple languages, special objectives that contained multiple ability names only showed one. This has been fixed.
  • A tip during the final mission instructed the player to use creatures that are higher than level 30, which is impossible. This has been corrected.

We’re currently working on solutions for the following issues:

  • Campaign course 22 mission 2 issue is still being worked on. For the time being, instead of requiring the ability to be used 3 times, we have lowered the requirements to 2.
  • The tooltip stats information is not updated as soon as the associated buff/debuff has ended during a Raid.
  • Apple device players may receive offline / push notifications while online.
  • Raid invite push notifications are only in English.
  • Icons and buttons are all displayed on screen after a drone session or opening incubators on a 1 gig Apple device.
  • Expired DNA Donation Requests Remain in Alliance Chat.

A note on data collecting
We’d like to take a moment and thank everyone who has been participating in our numerous surveys and providing us with constructive feedback on our forums and social channels. We believe in player feedback and although changes rarely occur immediately, the very tangible data we collect, especially from our surveys, help guide us on our roadmaps and future optimizations.
