Synergy of Serra Introduces Ranked Seasons
Synergy of Serra introduces Ranked Seasons, revamps Energy mechanics, and makes Attachments permanent, enhancing the game's strategic depth and competitive appeal.
Synergy of Serra, the popular blockchain-based card game, has announced the introduction of Ranked Seasons, a competitive feature that will redefine the gaming experience for its players. Each Ranked Season will span two weeks, during which players will vie for top positions on the leaderboard. The higher a player ranks, the more rewards they stand to win. The inaugural reward for Ranked Season 1 will be the game's soul-bound token, Alpha Fame. The game developers have hinted at expanding the reward pool in future seasons, encouraging players to accumulate Alpha Fame.
To qualify for rewards, players must participate in at least 15 games during a season. The amount of Alpha Fame awarded will be based on a player's rank at the end of the two-week Ranked Season. The first Ranked Season kicked off on Friday, 21st July, marking a significant milestone in the game's history.
Revamped Energy and Permanent Attachments
In addition to the introduction of Ranked Seasons, Synergy of Serra has also announced significant changes to its Energy and Attachment mechanics. Energy, a crucial element required to play cards, has been reintroduced in a new form. Now, each player will have a pool of Energy that replenishes in increasing amounts each turn. Furthermore, players can choose to save their Energy across turns, adding a layer of tactical flexibility and decision-making to the game. However, the Energy pool has a cap of 15, preventing indefinite savings.
The game's Attachment mechanics have also undergone a significant transformation. Attachments, which were previously removed when a Unit was destroyed, are now permanent. Once attached to a unit, they will remain for the entirety of the game unless an effect separates them. This change compels players to strategize their Attachment decisions carefully, weighing the immediate advantage of attaching something less optimal against waiting for the perfect synergy between Unit and Attachment.
These changes come as part of Synergy of Serra's ongoing efforts to improve the gaming experience. The developers have also revamped the backend architecture for a smoother experience and are testing different ideas to balance gameplay. Despite being a prototype, the game client is being refined to be as playable as possible. The Unity release is on the horizon, promising more exciting updates in 2023.
The synergy of Serra's introduction of Ranked Seasons, along with the revamp of Energy and Attachment mechanics, represents a significant evolution in the game's strategic depth and competitive appeal. As the game continues to grow and innovate, players can look forward to more exciting developments in the future.
