Hello everyone! We are about to begin a Kickstarter for the creation of merchandise based on Urban Rivals.
We would like to ask you: Which are your favourite Urban Rivals characters? Complete the survey HERE
Thanks and enjoy UR!

So will it be little figurines with like a code for UR?
So if in those like 12 caracters, 3 are chosen...what would be the point of colecting all if there are only 3
I know this is only very 'alpha' and it could get into like 16 figurines in RL packs that gives us a pack+the card in UR...but if there are only 16 figurines, would make 16 cards under-priced because of the big ammount of this cards on the market, and we're not talking cards like Cesare or Cherry, that are under 1k.
Figurines are a great idea if sold not only on EN-speaking countries because we all know that UR is global
(sorry for 'bad' english )
"and our metrics back that up. "
bold claim to make when the metrics are not public knowledge
". Furthermore, as Kickstarter is a way of backing project through crowd funding, it will not be costly. "
not costly for Boostr --- hence why they are so willing to take on this project. Costly to those who support it... drawing from a shrinking player base --- a player base that will grow smaller especially if the project they back fizzles out.
as i said, this is high stakes game that UR is now taking on. it is good to see them try something, but proceed with caution here guys
pudding was promised months ago --- still no pudding. just teasers and a taste here and there.
Listen Im glad UR is trying. Im just a bit annoyed that certain things that players have asked for that would take less man hours have not been implemented yet big projects keep getting proposed and yet to be delivered
I understand your frustrations, but big improvements can be hard to put an exact deadline on. After all, we're talking about a coordinated effort between many creative individuals on several very challenging projects, that have to seamlessly come together and become one project at some point. This is why delays are not an uncommon thing in the game dev industry as a whole, and you see them with even tremendous companies trying to nurture extremely profitable franchises.
Regardless, it should be evident that the game has improved and continues to do so, and that progressively bigger improvements are on the way. It's hard to deny that UR has improved more over the last year than in many years previous.
As far as the Kickstarter goes, we plan to provide some great incentives for anyone chipping in. Kickstarter is inherently a low-risk thing. If people like the incentives and fund the project, everyone gets what they want... If the funding goal isn't met, the contributions are returned to everyone. So in that, it's a very efficient way of determining if there's enough interest in a project, as well.
Let me emphasize once again that this isn't a side project that will distract us from the rest of what we're working on. It's something that we hope will become part of an effective advertising strategy after the bigger projects are completed.
I personally came up with a great incentive...
Instead of 4 new characters available each week... There should be 3 but 1 of those are made into a t shirt and a code to retrieve the new card !
Easy, and profitable. But. UR must advertise before they even consider making figures for a game that has a population of 3k players.
If UR ain't going to advertise, this game will be long gone.
Don't make us players do your work on bringing in players that have no idea how to play. Perhaps bring something out that don't always involve going into battle. Give a bigger incentive for new players wanting to stay because they enjoywhat they do. Having battling being the tackiest type of thing on the internet is not going to bbringn players.
Especially cheesy effects that just make you laugh due to how bad it is. I am almost sure the change won't be a lot different but God ... Save my ass if I find out that the game is reaaaaalllly good. I'd take my hat of to you staff if you could do that !
Good luck with figures that will make you lose money. Please pay me a visit and say I was right. I will only forgive you for the 738th time.
