Metarun Open Beta Gets Updated with New Gameplay and a More Balanced Economy
The long-awaited League system, as well as a new economic model and game modes, are now available in Metarun.
What's new in Metarun open beta
Metarun, a play-to-earn endless mobile runner, has released a host of exciting updates featuring new gameplay and a more balanced economy. Some of these changes were announced last month, especially the long-awaited League system.
An in-game shop is now available on Metarun, allowing players to buy Skins and Energy Bundles directly. All character skins will have the same characteristics as NFTs. But according to the team, these items are only tradeable in the next update.
Apart from that, all skins will have the same initial speed, though players can only upgrade them in the next release. The League will also determine players' maximum return on investment (ROI) as they compete and progress through the ranks.
Currently, there are three game modes in Metarun: Survival, Unranked, and Competitive. The Survival mode does not bear any rewards, while the Unranked mode is a new PvP game that allows players to earn Energy points. As Metarun will not dispense any more free Energy, players must acquire them from the in-game shop or Unranked matches.
With enough Energy points, players can participate in League matches to earn OPAL tokens. There are 10 Leagues in the game, with four different tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Diamond. Everybody will start at Bronze with 0 MMR points and reach higher ranks as they win more matches.
On top of that, the matchmaking system has been revised for players to compete against opponents with similar skills or Leagues. If there are not enough gamers online, they will be matched with someone from the lower League or with only 1 player to kick off a 1v1 PvP race. The team will bring back the OPAL swap feature once the new economy has been tested and proven reliable.
