BLOCKLORDS NEO BETA — How to get started!

After months of development since winning the NEO.GAME ‘Best Blockchain Game’ award in 2018, the time has finally come for BLOCKLORDS to host an open beta on the NEO Testnet! The team invites all interested players to come and experience the very first blockchain grand strategy game for free before it launches on the mainnet. In order to play, simply follow the below steps:

INSTALLING THE O3 WALLET

This version of BLOCKLORDS uses the O3 desktop wallet. Built for the NEO blockchain, O3 is your gateway to the smart economy future.

Download O3 here: https://o3.network/

CREATING A NEW WALLET

Once O3 is installed, choose the option to create a new wallet. You will be prompted to name your wallet and enter a password for it.

Once that is done, you will be shown a set of private and public keys. Be sure to store these private keys in a safe place. If you lose them, you will lose access to your account, and any assets that may be on it, forever!

GETTING TESTNET GAS

Now that your wallet is ready, you are going to need some testnet GAS in order to play the game. Start by looking for the MAINNET tab on the left.

Switch to testnet by clicking here.

If you do not already have testnet GAS, you can claim some at https://neowish.ngd.network/ or email us at info@blocklords.io with your public address and we will send you some as soon as possible.

CREATING A HERO

Congratulations, you are now ready to play BLOCKLORDS.

Click here to play: https://neo.blocklords.io/

The loading page has all the info you need to get started.

Click on the PLAY button to create your hero. You will be given the choice between three lords. Pick the one with the best stats and click CREATE.

Select the hero with the best stats and look.

You should be receiving a popup from your O3 wallet. Click accept to approve the transaction. Once the loading is done, you should get a SUCCESS popup and be taken to the hero profile page. If the hero creation fails and you get stuck, try refreshing. If the problem persists, please contact support.

Click approve to accept a transaction.

In the hero profile page, you can try equipping and unequipping items. This is also where you can see your item inventory. Since this hero was newly created, your inventory should be empty. Now let’s try going to the map.

BATTLES

Once you are on the map, you will be able to find lots of strategic points scattered throghout the map. To get item drops, try capturing a stronghold. To level up your items, try killing bandits. Cities are the biggest targets and the hardest ones to take down. City lords will earn GAS taxes on all transactions and coffer payouts at regular intervals.

The pre-battle screen will show your enemy’s stats.

If you want to fight a target, simply click on ATTACK. You will be taken to a pre-battle page and shown the stats of your enemy. Keep in mind that your troop count is an important factor. If you feel strong enough, click attack and confirm the transaction. Once the blockchain has processed your transaction, you will receive the results.

MARKET

Once you’ve acquired some items through the market, you can try selling some items in the market. Head to a city and click on VISIT. By selecting the selltab and clicking SELL, you will be able to sell one of your unequipped items. You can then enter your desired price and list the item for 8, 12, or 24 hours. Buying items works in a similar way. Feel free to try buying and selling.

Selling items will make your item available to others for a set GAS price.

BUG REPORTS

If you encounter any issues while playing, please get in touch with our team by issuing a bug report or emailing us at info@blocklords.io with details about the issue you are facing. We will do our best to get it resolved as soon as possible. We want to thank you for taking the time to test our product and hope you will enjoy your time spent playing BLOCKLORDS!

MAINNET LAUNCH

As soon as we have tested the game thoroughly and made sure everything is up to par, we will be launching the game on the NEO mainnet. That said, this version is only the beginning. We have lots of future features and improved gameplay planned. Our long-term goal is to make BLOCKLORDS one of the best strategy games ever made, and we hope you will join us for the ride.
