I’m happy to be able to share with you some information many of you have been hoping to see for a while. It’s the first step in our effort to update the rewards you receive from participating in the live events in War of Nations.
One major issue that’s come up recently is that rewards from the events just didn’t feel very rewarding. While a more comprehensive update to the existing rewards is planned we wanted to do something in the short term to make life a little bit better for you. We plan for this to be a temporary solution to the problem, but we still want it to be an enjoyable part of the game until we have taken a moment to address some of the other high-priority issues that have been raised over the past year.
Now, let’s get to the meat of what I want to share with you. Below you will find an image showing you a few new items in War of Nations that you will quickly become acquainted with.
The most important of these items is the “Spoils of War” (centre), a chance-based crate similar to some of the other crates you’re already familiar with in War of Nations. While this crate is chance-based you don’t need to worry about getting items you have no use for, with it we’ve built in a sort of “guarantee” reward system in the form of Combat Tokens. When we asked you what kinds of items you would like to see as event rewards you told us “Sapphire Keys, Fragments, and rare Upgrade materials.” So that’s what we’ve done. When opening these crates you’ll have a chance to get things we know you’ll need like Emerald or Sapphire Keys, but you’ll also get the new X-Lab currency “Combat Tokens”.
These Combat Tokens are what really makes this system stand out. We wanted to make sure that this update would be a rewarding experience for players at different places in the game, from new players to grizzled war veterans we wanted to offer you something to fight for. This new currency will only be found in the Spoils of War and will be used exclusively to purchase items in the X-Lab’s newest outlet, the Armory.
This new tab in the X-Labs Vault is a great way for us to let players take the rewards into their own hands. We could try our best to guess at what each of you needs, but you guys know what you need so we’re letting you make the final decision here. We’ve handpicked a few items for you to choose from as possible rewards for your participation in events. Aside from the expected Keys, we’ve also added in some Commander Upgrade items that have been rather rare and hard to come by lately as well as the brand new “Cluster Crate”. Inside this Cluster Crate, you will find various amounts of Fragments which can also be exchanged for the items you need for your Research or Experimental Upgrades.
Now, many of you are probably wondering “Where will we get these Spoils of War?”Well, let’s get to that. You’ll be collecting these crates as personal spoils from participation in any of our events. Starting on Tuesday, December 14th you’ll be able to see how many of these new crates you’ll be fighting for. Below is an example of what you’re likely to see in the game.
The team is pretty happy to have had some great back and forth with many of you on Discord over the last few weeks. We love the passion of the community and dedication to War of Nations. We’ve turned a new corner recently and all of us here at PopReach we motivated and excited to work with you to make War of Nation as great as we all want it to be!
Please let us know your thoughts on this update below! We’re excited to hear your feedback.
