We have a lot of ideas for Urban Rivals, and it's can be difficult to know what you really expect from us, fortunately, we have the message board Your comments on the Cr auctions helped us a lot to evaluate this project. We decided to put it aside until we can solve most (if not all) of the issues that appears. Today we'd like to continue this discussion and talk about 2 other features.
Among the features we have in mind for Urban Rivals, there are 2 that we'd like to know what you think of. Tell us which project should be our priority, according to you.
First idea : A new game mode allowing you to bet on your match
How would it work : The player would purchase tokens with their credits and bet these tokens in their games against other players, to get more tokens. Player would be able to exchange tokens for credits whenever they want, at the following rate : 10 credits = 1000 tokens.
The player would be able to bet 100, 500 or 1000 tokes per game. Winning rates increases with the number of tokens played.
100 tokens : Winner gets 160 tokens, loser gets 10. In case of draw both get 85 tokens. Kate takes 30 Tokens (15%)
500 tokens : Winner gets 850 tokens, loser gets 50. In case of draw both get 450 tokens. Kate takes 100 tokens (10%)
1000 tokens : Winner gets 1800 tokens, loser gets 100 tokens. In case of draw both get 950 tokens. Kate takes 100 tokens (5%)
If a player forfeits, quits or expires the game, his opponent wins the game
The deck format would be restricted, maybe not ELO (even though it's our idea at the moment) but certainly a format excluding the most unbalanced cards.
Second project : A new design of the character cards
The cards haven't changed in a very long time. We'd like to change them in order to bring more focus to the clan and the rarity, we also think of adding a background behind the character. Tell us what you think of the cards as they are now and wether we should change them.
That's it. It's your turn now!
1st idea: Might be good but i get stuck by the ammount that Kate takes, i never understood why Kate always have to take some %s for any trade, buy or whatever. Maybe it's a better idea to just remove the greedy Kate and only let her be of service instead of that frustrating ctz loss!
2nd idea: awesome!
Because there needs to be something to fight the inflation and having a 5% tax taken off everything at the time is easier than tallying up every interaction and paying taxes like in real life?
@UR Please make 2 Betting Zones one for Type 2 players and one for the Elo players, that way everyone is happy. Those that want to gamble have to just remember that they chose to gamble and there is a chance of loosing just like that of winning that's why there should be no restriction neither on the Elo or type 2 gambling, UR is the casino and makes the rules but a real casino would not allow players to come in and set their own rules to play at the casino it's unheard of with that said I hope that the betting zones are created ... Oh! As for the the improvement of the cards YES please upgrade some
Re: some cards new a make over bad, Sum Sam Cr needs an extreme make over just like a few others and the stats won't change so just go ahead and redo the real bad looking ones .. It shows progress and commitment that UR wants to improve the game and we all should progress and move forward with UR ...
I like the idea of the betting room if it is majorly restricted... I've ready some of the richer players' opinions and one of what i saw was no restrictions... that would be horrible as it would favor anyone with the most powerful cards in the game (i have some of those cards and disagree with this as its unfair to newer players) but as you stated it will be restricted then it seems like a decent idea, but i would like to see what the tokens get a player and perhaps giving the options of buying tokens with clintz as well, otherwise it will just be players in there that have constant money to spend and since this game is for all ages all the younger players would be at a disadvantage. I'm also not big on the tax cut on the tokens from kate, depending on what you get with tokens i feel a lot of players would just buy tokens and spend them instead of risking losing so many.
i love the 2nd idea it would be great to see new stuff done with the cards
hope this helps!
@Thoazol: sorry, i get what you mean but i still think it's overdone.
I love the idea 0nly 0n3 (BZ) has, that borrow option would be great, i know a lot of players who ask to borrow cards and a lot of players who lend cards, and at the same time there are players out there using these peoples kindness (the lenders obviously) to make a profit of their own. yes any player can contact UR support but with the constant influx of other complaints that would be a way to take a stress off staff shoulders and make the lenders have more comfort in their loans. i can imagine that it would have a setting to those cards that they cannot be sold as well.
i also like rhypher's idea for the bank that would be excellent
@rhypher and @0nly on3 (BZ) - IMO you guys should submit that to the support team in a message for game suggestions, i did this requesting that we could set a limit (min or max) to power and damage in deck formatting, they replied saying they would take it under consideration
I think if ur gonna make it so people are placing bets they should be able to use whatever cards they want i dont feel a format in which people can place bets should fall victum to the restrictions of the powerful cards. Whats the point in owning a super powerful card if it gets banned or penalized in every competitive format.
For the 2nd thing i think a change would be good the background idea is good another idea is being able to choose where lvl artwork is show on each card. Like say i have a lvl 5 kolos but i want to use it with the lvl 1 artwork make it so the player can decide between which of the lvl of artwork they want to use. This is a really good idea for some cards where the lower lvl artworks are so nice and the ending artwork isnt as good for example of this Lizzy i love her 1st artwork and im ok with the 2nd artwork but the last 2 are kinda meh i would much rather use Lizzy with her lvl 2 artwork then her 5th lvl.
The choosing ur own used artwork idea would also ad a little variety to hands that have cards everyone uses i've seen grak's lvl 5 artwork sooo many times but only the other evolution when im looking at his page or lvling 1 up. For cards that arent seen as often this would be really nice because the unevolved artworks would be even rarer seen.
I have to disagree with the idea of choosing what artwork to display on cards. When playing, making quick decisions, i can look up at my opponent's hand and instantly know what his cards stats are by seeing the artwork. If I am facing someone who is using Kolos and for whatever reason has his egg picture shown, I now have to check the card to make sure what level its at and its stats. I just think it would be a bad idea to change artwork like that, and would only cause loss of time when playing and making decisions
