Welcome to Wizardia’s first game development review.

 

Our team has been super busy polishing the game, adding new features and developing new game modes. They’ve been so busy, there’s hardly been time to update our community about everything going on!

 

But fear not - this new, regular series of articles will keep you up to date with everything that changes in Tournaments and everything you can look forward to experiencing in-game in the nearest future.

 

wizardia roadmap

 

Everything we achieved in August / September

Launching Tournaments

We launched the first Tournament - the Alpha Version of the Game - back in August. Wizard NFT holders had the first chance to put those magical in-game characters to the test, battling in our PvE Arena against AI opponents.

 

Free-to-Play Practice Mode

Want to experience the magic of Wizardia, but don’t own 3 Wizard NFTs? We have launched the free-to-play version of Wizardia so everyone gets a chance to get a taste of the magic of Wizardia - but also experienced players get to try out new strategies and combinations. You can play as much as you want and learn exactly what works and what doesn’t. In each battle, you and your opponent will get a randomized Wizard lineup and equipped consumables. Try the new practice mode here.

 

PvP Arena Development

Our development team has finished development on our new PvP gamemode and, after extensive testing, we’re almost ready to let you battle against your fellow players. The first version of this is Wizardia’s new Practice Mode, then we’ll introduce a couple more PvP modes. 

 

PvP battles for prizes will launch in early November, followed by the beta version of the Arena in late November. If all goes well with testing and game balancing, the Beta Arena will go live and Arena Genesis NFT holder will be able to start earning their passive rewards. In parallel, we’ll launch our Wizard renting system, offering another potential earning opportunity to NFT holders.

 

Tournament 1 in Review

Our 1st ever Tournament wrapped up on the 8th of September. The overall winner, SHISHANI, is a name you're going to see coming up on the leaderboard again and again! SHISHANI picked up 50,000 $WZRD tokens, as well as an Epic Olek Wizard NFT worth $777.  Check out the full list of winners and prizes.

Tournament 2 in Review

Coming to an end of September 26th, the second PvE Tournament again saw SHISHANI topping the leaderboard. This time, they opted for an Epic Hinata ($777) as their Wizard NFT prize. Again, to check all of the winners and prizes in Tournament 2, head here.

Tournament Strategies

In the thousands of battles fought in our first two Tournaments, it definitely seems that some winning strategies have emerged. We spoke to some of the top players and they were kind enough to share some of their recipes for success. You can read the full rundown here.

 

Consumables

We’ve launched Consumables - the Wizards Enhancers to bring a new depth to strategy to Tournament battles. Now, for only $11 for a pack of 45 potions of all 3 kinds, you can. Your Consumables will first be available to use in-game during the PvE Blitz Tournaments. Get an extra edge to your game via wizardia.io/consumables

Upgraded Arena Battlefield

We also updated the Arena visuals, with a brand new environment for your Wizard battles.

What’s coming next in October / November

3rd PvE Tournament starts Oct 28

Mark that in your calendar - Wizardia’s 3rd PvE Tournament starts on October 28. This time you’re fighting for a prize pool of 100,000 WZRD and exclusive Wizard NFTs. Head over to wizardia.io/tournaments to sign up, if you haven’t already.

 

Renting Wizard NFTs

Wizard NFT renting is coming to Wizardia very soon. Both for gaming guilds and NFT investors, this will offer a new way to benefit from holding Wizard NFTs. For gamers who want to compete for prizes in Tournaments or wagers in upcoming Arena battles, but have not got 3 Wizard NFTs of their own - this will allow you to rent Wizard NFTs for the market price and specified period of time. After the period ends, the rented Wizard NFT goes back to the possession of the original owner.

 

Partner Tournaments

Wizardia has a ton of great partners, from other gamefi projects to launchpads and exchanges. We are planning to host our first Partner Sponsored Tournament next month, It works like this: same exciting Tournament gameplay you’ve come to know, but with valuable prizes coming from our friendly partners. Shishani - if you’re tired of winning thousands of $WZRD tokens and all those Wizard NFTs, this one’s for you.

 

New Wizards

Three new Wizards are under development and will be launched in the next month. These include Rose, Seven and Elzevir. We’ve been asking our community to help choose which characters we launch next, so keep an eye on Discord for more opportunities to help guide our new developments. If you didn’t meet these Wizards yet, here are the mini bios:

 

 

Rose

Rose is a seemingly simple office worker from Euro Metropolis. However, wherever she turns, she is always met with the luckiest coincidences. After the calamity, her magnetic attraction to success became all too apparent. Anyone opposing her somehow becomes the target of all the misfortune in the world. Even her closest friends are not exempt from this rule.

 

 

Seven

Seven is a star singer from the city of New Tokyo. She was inspired by the greatest voices of history and dedicated her life to becoming better than anyone before her. She returned to Earth’s orbit from a universe-wide tour just before the Tearing. After crash-landing on The Core, her powerful voice found a new register - one that could impact every soul and bid them to Seven’s will. No matter the cause.

 

 

Elzevir

Becoming a Voice in The Gnostes is a position of honour sought by many. Elzevir worked hard his entire life to become known and respected in the scientific community. Reaching fame and recognition, Elzevir began to carefully manipulates his fellow scientists to his liking. It could be said that his ability to plan and scheme is beyond genius - he is the invisible hand that guides progress.
