The updates to the game have been:

  • Alliances (following the Alliance logo contest),
  • Bounties & Medals,
  • Discord Account linking,
  • Auctions for units using medals in Discord,
  • Daily and weekly quests,
  • Fast deployment of destroyed units using medals,
  • New sounds/music/effects have been added.

Alliances

As highlighted in the last article, there was an Alliance Logo Contest which concluded on 8/11/19. The winning entries now represent the first 5 Alliances that have been implemented into CryptoAssault. They are: AA, BAD, FFS, KOS, and SLYRS.

Players are able to leave Alliances they have joined at any time but there is a one week cooldown before they can join a new one. Joining an Alliance is encouraged as players who do not will suffer a 25% reduction in their Land Dividends and Salvage Bonus. The Alliances have been implemented to improve balance across the player base and encourage large players to join different Alliances. Players in the same Alliances are not able to attack each other and are encouraged to work together.

It also provides a balancing mechanism whereby the most dominant Alliances will receive a penalty in land dividends and salvage dividends thus encouraging the largest players to split up instead of joining the same Alliance.

When a player joins an Alliance via the new Alliance Tab in the game they can see the Land Dividend and Salvage Bonus that they now have for joining that Alliance.

Additional features are currently in development which will be aimed at rewarding players who work together with their Alliance members and coordinate against other Alliances.

Kill Score, Medals & the Discord Linking

Medals have been introduced as a shared resource which can be acquired/used both in Discord and in the game itself and generally rewards more active players.

CryptoAssault now has a bounty leaderboard which awards medals at random intervals to the top bounty players. Bounty is acquired based on the rarity/power of the defending unit as well as the amount of land that the defending player controls. Bounties on players with more land are higher encouraging attacking of the strongest players.

Medals can also be awarded to players through several other methods. These include a 1% chance to receive a medal for every unit that you kill and two different ways you can pick up medals through the integrated Discord Bot that rewards players randomly in chat (this requires linking your CryptoAssault account with your Discord account).

The Medals themselves can be used in the game to fast repair units and instantly redeploy. The base cost is dependent on unit quality as well as the time remaining in repair. The cost of each unit to quickly repair in medals is dependent on a “land multiplier”. Every 5% of total land that a player owns will increase the multiplier. This allows players with less land to redeploy more frequently and apply greater pressure on the center which allows for some really interesting tactics in deploying/attacking enemy units. In addition, the medals can also be used for entering into raffles and auctions in the Discord server. These raffles and auctions happen on a weekly basis.

Quests & Player Levels

Every day players will get two new daily quests to complete and every satellite cycle they will also have the chance to complete a bigger (more difficult) quest. The players can complete the quests to gain medals and experience.

With the completion of quests, player can also earn experience (in addition to the medals) which allow players to level up. Players with higher levels will receive more challenging quests which also provide greater rewards.

In the future, levels will be important for new features that will be implemented in the game.
