    Heya!

    The new update has been released for Duels, available to play now in the Duels Lobby. Read on below for a full list of changes and additions or play it right now by clicking the Duels Lobby NPC, game menu icon, or using the command /lobby duels.

    ▶ What is in this update?
    • Duels Season
    • New SkyWars Duels maps
    • Improvements to Division Titles
    • Lots of bug fixes and QOL improvements
    • And more!
    As always, if you find any bugs or issues please report them in the bugs section on the forums HERE.

    Thanks to all who gave feedback and suggestions in the 1.2 Update Proposal thread! :)
    ▶ Duels Seasons
    Seasons have been added to Duels, an update to the position titles you could previously equip for UHC and SkyWars Duels, now available for all modes in Duels. Duels Seasons last 3 months and a minimum of 250 overall wins are required to be able to equip the position titles and to be placed on the leaderboards in a Season.

    Similar to how the UHC and SkyWars position titles worked, in a Duels Season as you play more of a certain mode and do better in that mode, your position will improve!

    Note: Over the course of the first season, things may change to improve the system. We're always looking for feedback and suggestions for the network so feel free to reply with any feedback or suggestions you may have.

    ▶ New SkyWars Duels Maps
    3 new maps have been added to SkyWars Duels, brought over from ranked SkyWars. Open the spoilers below to view the new maps.

    ▶ Statuses and Division Titles
    [​IMG]

    With this update, we have introduced division titles for all modes. Now you can unlock win Division titles for all mode categories in Duels, not just SkyWars and UHC! On top of that, we have re-enabled Division titles displaying above your head in the lobbies after some performance improvements! Currently, Diamond+ and position titles can be displayed above your head.

    On top of that, we have introduced a new Division: Grandmaster. Grandmaster requires 5000 modes wins or 10000 overall wins. As a result, Godlike has been bumped up to 10000 mode wins or 20000 overall wins.

    Title progress message displayed at the end of each Duel
    On top of that, Division levels have been added to all Divisions as stepping stones towards the next Division. There are 5 levels to each division before you level up to the next division, for example: Gold, Gold II, Gold III, Gold IV, Gold V. You can view your progress in the lobby via the Browse Division Titles menu or at the end of each Duel.

    Godlike will cap at level 10 or Godlike X - 30000 mode wins or 60000 overall wins.

    Furthermore, in the Season & Progression Menu you can now open the Change your Status menu to select a status to display above your head. This allows you display different information above your head, from "Looking to 1v1" or "Just chillin'" to the number of Trophies that you have or your best Win Streak!

    ▶ General Changes
    A bunch of new achievements have been added to Duels, including 2 new tiered achievements and 11 new one time achievements!

    A full list of the new achievements can be seen in the spoiler below:
    • Gone Fishing - 5 points - Catch a fish
    • Build Battle Duels - 5 points - Place 128 blocks in a single Duels game and win
    • Getting Loot - 5 points - Open a Duels Loot Chest
    • Speedy Sumo - 5 points - Win a Sumo Duel game in 5 seconds or less
    • Close Call! - 10 points - Use all your health potions in a NoDebuff Duel and win
    • Hawk's Eye - 10 points - Win a Bow Duels game with 100% bow accuracy
    • Lobby Slayer - 10 points -Get a 10 kill streak in the lobby Battle Arena

    • Climbing the Ranks - 5 Tiers - Achieve x Title in any mode
    • Duels Traveller - 5 Tiers - Win a Duel on x different maps

    Furthermore, to balance out the kits more in SkyWars Duels, we have decided to remove Mega Kits from SkyWars Duels. You will still be able to select from Ranked, Teams and Solo kits, but Mega Kits will no longer be available. We felt that the Mega kits weren't balanced for a 1v1 situation, so they have been removed.

    We have also made the Battledome map added in the 1.0 update available for all modes. Previously Battledome was only available for 4v4 modes.
