As they continue to prepare for a wider release, Skylanders: Ring of Heroes today updated to add a real time friendly arena mode that lets you fight against other randomly selected players. There's no ranking in this mode so no penalty for losing and there is not yet a way to battle a specific opponent but that is apparently on its way in a future update.

They've also kicked off a couple of new events. The "Create Your 5* Dream Team" event asks you to use the Ultra Premium Summon (800 Gems) and they'll then give you a Legendary 5* Skylander (or 50 Soul Stones for it if you already own it) on the 3rd time, the 10th time, and the 20th time you use the summon. The event lasts 14 days but that's an awful lot of gems to spend....

The second event they've started is "Hugo's Portal Master Mission Book" which is a lot more manageable and gives you smaller rewards for completing a variety of basic tasks. Every three you complete will get you a bunch of bonus gems. This one lasts until the beginning of April.


And there were also a whole slew of other changes as detailed in the full patch notes below:
