Gods Unchained Collaborates with Superpower for Balance Testing
Gods Unchained has enlisted the help of third-party testing group Superpower to enhance game balance, prompting mixed responses from the community.
God's Unchained Partners Superpower
Achieving and maintaining balance in a trading card game (TCG) like Gods Unchained can be challenging, especially as new cards are introduced. Gods Unchained has engaged Superpower, an external testing group of experienced players to address this. Superpower will focus on testing upcoming expansions and new game modes to improve overall balance.
To prevent potential insider trading, Superpower's testers are obligated to follow specific disclosure rules. These rules include reporting trades that exceed certain thresholds related to trading volumes and values. While some players believe these rules are insufficient, Superpower has committed to disclosing all trades. However, concerns about impartiality and potential competitive advantages during new set releases have been raised.
Trial Period and Community Engagement
Acknowledging player concerns, Gods Unchained has emphasized that the partnership with Superpower will commence with a two-month trial period. This trial phase will allow for evaluating the effectiveness of the collaboration and addressing any issues that may arise. Despite this assurance, a segment of the player base feels disheartened, expressing a sense of limited involvement in decision-making processes.
Complex games with diverse mechanics often require external testing to uncover loopholes and address edge cases that internal testing might overlook. While Gods Unchained has been reluctant to implement a Public Test Realm (PTR) in the past, including a third-party testing group like Superpower aims to address this challenge. The community eagerly awaits the outcomes of this collaboration, hoping for improved game balance and an engaging gaming experience.
