Game changes: Rarity find and Tournaments

Posted by Yukigaaru Posted on Friday, March 28, 2014 12:40 PM

First of all, we would like to thank the people that took their time to give us constructive feedback regarding the pros and cons of the RPG system released last year. In the upcoming weeks we’ll be addressing the problems that were introduced during this revamp.

With this update we are tackling the following issues:

Rarity find system

Issues:

  • Players are afraid to lose their well earned rarity when experimenting with new teams.
  • Players find it hard to keep their rarity up when searching rare characters.

Fixes:
We’ve removed the rarity penalty in favour of a much simpler bonus system. If you’ve won your last battle, you receive the “On-fire bonus”, which gives you an additional 200% rarity find. We’ve also changed the base rarity you get from playing Easy, Normal and Hard difficulty.

The following calculation is used to determine your rarity:
Base Rarity = Player Level (1 - 50)

Easy = +0% (+0 rarity find on player level 50)
Normal = +100% (+50 rarity find on player level 50)
Hard = +200% (+100 rarity find on player level 50)

On fire bonus = +200% (+100 rarity find on player level 50)

Due to the change in the Rarity system, tournaments no longer give bonus rarity find as a reward.

We realize this does not solve the issue of finding extremely rare characters entirely. Please note that this is just the first of several updates we have planned, and we are working on other updates that will more directly address this issue.

Tournaments

Issues:

  • The high entry fee for constructed tournaments has made them unattractive compared to draft tournaments.

Fixes:
The entry price and reward structure of constructed tournaments is changed to match that of the draft tournaments:

  • Sign up cost: 5 gold
  • Second place: 25 gold
  • First place: 50 gold

As mentioned before, more changes are on the way. We would very much like your feedback on this new update. Let us know in this topic if you either like or dislike it, and feel free to post your own suggestions if you have any.

Cho, Daimyo of the Arashi

Posted by Yuudai Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 1:51 PM

Today, we present Arashi Cho. Cho is the Daimyo of the Arashi village and also the leader of the Arashi's elite few, the Storm Dancers. With her Chakram and an unsurpassed control of the weather and wind, Cho defends the Arashi and their way of life from any and all who would challenge their freedom. You'll be able to unlock Cho in the Cho Tournament tonight!

With the release of Cho, Kaiyou Tsuyu is now released in the regular character pool. Her Rarity level is 250 right now, but it will eventually drop to 164.

Let us know what you think in this topic.

Have fun!

Custom Character Contest #1

Posted by Nijime Posted on Tuesday, February 18, 2014 1:29 PM

It's been a few months since the new Skill Tags were introduced in the forum's BBCode. Since then, we've seen a large number of players using those tags to create their own custom characters.

The WoN staff has decided to challenge you to create the most interesting and well-balanced characters you can come up with in our new Custom Character Contests. A new contest will be posted every 2 or 3 weeks, with a new theme for each one. Of course there will be prizes for the winners.

The first contest has just opened. In this first edition we challenge you to create a new ninja from the Kusa village. We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Introducing Clan Strife

Posted by Yukigaaru Posted on Thursday, January 23, 2014 4:57 PM

The War of Ninja staff is proud to introduce our newest feature: Clan Strife! In Clan Strife, you and your clan fight for dominance over the other clans of War of Ninja. Earn the highest reputation and become the greatest clan in War of Ninja!

With Clan Strife we are introducing a new Clan Ladder based on Reputation. Clan Reputation can be earned by fighting the AI, or you can go to war against other clans and try to steal their reputation!

For more details on how this system works, go here. Now go and start those wars to prove to War of Ninja that your clan is the best!

NOTICE: We are currently experiencing problems with the new system. We are working hard to fix them.

Kasui released and Tsuyu Tournaments!

Posted by Yuudai Posted on Tuesday, December 17, 2013 1:39 PM

We've released Kasui in the AI pool, so you'll be able to unlock her by playing AI battles now. Her rarity starts out at 224, but it will decrease to 144 over the coming weeks.

With the introduction of Frost afflictions also comes a way to remove them. We didn't want to introduce new items just yet, so we decided to have Cleansing Water also remove Frost afflictions next to its usual function of removing fire afflictions.

Now that Kasui's been added to the AI, there is no need for the Kasui Tournaments anymore. Fear not though, because tonight we'll be holding the very first Tsuyu Tournament! That's right, tonight's winner will be the first to unlock Kaiyou Tsuyu!

Good luck, and have fun!

Introducing Constructed and Draft Tournaments

Posted by Yukigaaru Posted on Friday, November 8, 2013 4:30 PM

For the past few weeks our efforts have been focussed on making competitive play on War of Ninja more popular. This week we had Balance Update 1.0, private draft battles, and today we have revisioned our tournaments.

Now you’ll have two different types of tournaments available to you:

4-player Draft:

  • Best of 1
  • Entrance fee: 5 gold
  • First round loss: 5% Rarity find
  • Runner up: 25 gold, 2 tournament points, + 10% Rarity find
  • Winner: 50 gold, 4 tournament points, + 25% Rarity find

4-player constructed

  • Semi-Final Best of 3, Final best of 5
  • Entrance fee: 100 gold
  • First round loss: 10 gold, + 50% Rarity find
  • Runner up: 150 gold, 4 tournament points + 75% Rarity find
  • Winner: 200 gold, 8 tournament points + 100% Rarity find

You’ll also notice we’ve added Rarity find as a reward for tournaments. This Rarity find will be counted in the same pool as the Rarity find you receive for winning battles against the AI.

Let us know what you think in this topic.

Enjoy!

Draft-mode

Posted by Yuudai Posted on Thursday, November 7, 2013 5:07 PM

Today we are introducing a new form of competitive play in War of Ninja: Draft-mode!

In Draft-mode, two players will each have to create a team out of a shared pool of 10 characters, randomly selected, and then face-off in battle. Draft-mode forces players to step out of their comfort zone of established teams in Constructed-mode, and make the best of what is available to them.

Before we make this an official game mode for competitive play and introduce new tournament types, we need your help with testing. Draft-mode is currently available in the form of private battles. After you’ve played a few games, please answer the following questions in this topic on the forums.
