Due to the improving mobile environments, we can play RPG in not only computer online field but also mobile field. It is difference from hardware environment between them so that mobile RPG has been changed and modified to play in mobile environment except RPG's frame and basic element. This Study has investigated the model to evaluate the balance of battle that is based on the RPG. Although there is an assessment model studied with a focus on the MMORPG, It is difficult to apply to the entire balance in RPG especially mobile RPG. Former model has used only basic element because there were so many kinds of variables such as user's controls, other players and objects in game. The reason why that model just gave a guide line about battle balance. In this paper, the new assessment model to include the balance factors such as BUFF, NURF and PASSIVE could be possible for applying the balance of mobile RPG on recent trends. As a result, the new model can measure numerical calculations compared to the previous model.
