Kingdom Karnage Newsletter-November Edition (Open Beta)
October Stress Test Event
Before we get started today, I would like to personally thank everyone that participated in the Kingdom Karnage Stress Test Event that occurred on Sunday 18th October. The event was a big success, introducing a lot of new faces to the telegram chat channel and allowing me to test multiplayer with the server under a higher than normal workload. Several bugs were quashed, and we moved a large step closer in our quest towards a completely stable multiplayer. I trust you all enjoyed the rewards which included cards, gems and store credits!
Recent Game Updates:
Balanced Mode (PvP)
By far the biggest change this month is the introduction of Balanced Mode to the PvP options. The regulars among you will have noticed this was originally introduced with a requirement to participate in 5 ranked PvP matches each day. I am happy to report that the requirement to play ranked PvP to access this mode has now been removed. With no access requirements, you merely need to turn up and play with a free daily entry. Preset decks mean everyone has an equal chance, weekly cash prizes for the top 50 up to a top prize of 75 Enjin coin and guaranteed card & diamond drops for every win streak — What’s not to love?! For more details on this new game mode (and prizes) please check our website. If you have any trouble getting started with this new game mode, please contact redd (@redd84x) on telegram or use one of our other community contact methods at the bottom of this newsletter. As always, we welcome player feedback about new game modes.
In response to further player feedback, several changes have been made to campaign mode:
• To reduce grind, the max number of stages a campaign level will now have is 3.
• If you have not unlocked undead campaign mode yet (Prior to beating Human level 30) all card gem trade ins will reward human characters only. This should make it easier for starting players to boost their campaign deck.
A couple of changes for dungeons that should improve the accessibility of dungeons, especially to new players:
• The first time you access each dungeon you will get a guaranteed card drop. This buff will apply to existing players too the first time they run each dungeon after this update, so if you haven’t done so already you have incentive to vary your dungeon grind to activate these one time drops.
• When queuing for one of the initial 6 dungeons, if you have not filled your group after 1 minute, the option to add AI players appears (in the bottom right of the screen). This should ensure dungeons groups are quick to fill and accessible to all.
- Increased animation speed in all modes, and even faster in multiplayer (PvP and dungeons).
Wyden Tournament & Game stability
Earlier this month I dropped a 100% free Wyden to every token holder on a 1:1 basis. So a player that owned 5 Wyden (either in wallet or in-game) will have received a further 5 digital Wyden, enjoy! To see your digital Wyden, head to the Wyden Page of our website (You will need to be logged in). The side effect of this drop is that Wyden is no longer for sale in-store and only a minimum number are held by me now which I plan to use for future promotions/rewards.
While Kingdom Karnage is currently extremely playable (and improving all the time), unfortunately from time to time game players experience instability that causes them to lose a game outside of their control. With the high stakes of the Wyden Tournament, losing a Wyden due to a poor connection with the server would not meet the player experience this tournament demands meaning we have decided to postpone the tournament for this month. I can also confirm we won’t be launching in December both due to players having additional commitments that might distract them from the game over the Festive period and possibly something festive in-game 👀(am afraid you will have to wait for next month’s newsletter for more on that). To clarify we are currently working towards a Wyden tournament release early 2021 and will keep you updated. For more information about our Wyden Tournament please see the Events Page of our website.
That’s all for this month. Find a reminder of this month’s Pioneer missions below (our MFT drops) and some useful tips and links towards the bottom of this page. Catch you next month,
