Pre-release Update: Epics Rush
As we prepare for the beta launch of our game, we wanted to get you some information on what to expect!
The core of the game begins with roster building. You will be able to build a roster of your favorite players and battle it against professional and Epics’ created teams.
You will be able to build your roster based on the cards that you own in your collection. Each role has 3 stats which are weighed more. Assist, Utility, and Experience are heavily weighed for Support, Accuracy for Snipers, ect. When rounding out your roster, you will have a salary cap. You must be strategic in which players you select for your roster to make sure you get a high rating while staying within the cap!
Player roles are critical to your success, make sure you utilize the right players in the right positions. Available positions include Entry, Sniper, Support, Rifler, and Flex. Using a team of snipers will result in performance penalties.
We have additional bonuses and deductions assigned for individual maps on a player basis, which will be introduced when we launch the PvP mode! This will be crucial during the map veto process before a match.Team chemistry also contributes to your team strength. This is achieved by selecting players from the same team (max 3) or country.
Player cards will be scaled based on their tier. Tier 3 will keep 100% of the player stats shown on the cards and scale down from Tier 2-Common cards.
All player cards in the current season will be re-rendered with updated player stats for the game. Additionally, all cards minted going forward will have adjusted stats based on the tier of the card.
Once you have a roster ready, or a few for varying circumstances, you may then start a match. Watch your team roam the map, use utility, plant explosives and secure the round. String together multiple wins to rank up and move on to more difficult opponents!
Play through the core season to improve your rank and get some buffed rewards throughout the beta. We will have leaderboards and daily rewards available at launch to earn even more prizes!
Throughout the season we will run shadow events in line with the tournaments. These will focus on current standing and matchups. You can win special rewards and prizes but only for a limited time!
Coming after launch, we will be adding a leveling system to cards. Level up your card up to 5 times to further boost the card’s stats. We will also be releasing player vs player game modes with a focus on optimizing the game balance. We’ll need your feedback to make this a reality!
There will be a ton of work that will need to go into balancing the game and making it fun for everyone, so we’re not committing to a timeline on the new features yet. Get creative, brainstorm strategy, and outplay the competition!
