Treasure Wars Gameplay Update

It's time for a BIG Treasure Wars update! As some of you may have seen, we've been running a preview of the update for the past week. Thank you to anyone who gave feedback as it helped shape this update.

So, what's in this newest update?

New Features

4 New Maps

  • Oceanic for Solos
  • Gates for Duos
  • Summer Coast for Trios and Squads
  • Resort for Mega

Boomboxes

We've long heard feedback that you wanted more ways to play Treasure Wars, with one of the highest-rated suggestions being TNT. Today we're adding Boomboxes to the game.

  • Added "Knockback Boombox" at 4 diamonds each
  • Added "Block Breaker Boombox" at 5 emeralds each
  • Added "Blast-proof Glass" at 2 emeralds for 16 pieces

Balance Changes

Armor

Diamond armor was widely considered too powerful, whist iron armor was considered too expensive and offered only a small amount of defense more than chainmail. We've tried to bridge the gap between the armors to make the game feel more balanced.

  • Reduced "Iron Armor Set" from 32 to 12 diamonds
  • Added protection 1 to the iron chestplate, making the set an exact middle ground between chainmail and diamond
  • Increased "Diamond Armor Set" from 20 to 28 emeralds

Bows

  • Close range arrow shots now deal less damage, to discourage bow spam
  • Increased bow from 2 to 5 diamonds each

Other Balance Changes

  • Doubled the stock of golden apples per game
  • Changed golden apples to 5 diamonds each

Game Changes

General Changes

  • Implemented new victory screen
  • Armor items now only equip on purchase if they are of equal or greater defense value
  • Final kills now grant double XP
  • Added support for avatars on endgame podiums

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that could cause too much currency being taken when purchasing items
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in bridge builders having broken necks
  • Fixed logic order that would result in the game over message showing before the final kill had full processed
  • Corrected a typo when purchasing items from the store

As always, if you have any feedback please let us know on our Discord or our forums. Thank you to everyone who gave feedback on the preview! We're excited to hear what you think of this newest update.

Treasure Wars: Update Preview Patch 3

We're nearing the end of the Treasure Wars Update Preview. We've been monitoring feedback across Discord, Forums, and the updates website.

The new patch is deployed to all regions, awaiting your feedback. We encourage you to play before leaving feedback.

Armor

  • Added back Diamond Armor Set at 28 emeralds
  • Changed Iron Armor Set to include a Chestplate with Protection 1
  • Reduced Iron Armor price from 16 diamonds to 12

Developer note: We heard the large amounts of feedback that the experimental armor changes were too much. As a result, we've returned diamond armor, but at a revised price.

Additionally, we've added protection 1 to the iron chestplate. This adds a further 4% damage reduction to the iron armor set, making it exactly halfway between chainmail and diamond. We hope this will make iron armor more valuable in gameplay.

Miscellaneous 

  • Increased the stock of Golden Apples in games

We appreciate the open and fair feedback you have provided us during this update preview. If you have any feedback please let us know on Discord, our forums, or as a reply to this update.


Treasure Wars: Update Preview Patch 2

We've deployed a new version of the Treasure Wars Update Preview.

Armor

  • Armor will now only swap on purchase if it has a higher or equal defense rating
  • Changed Iron Armor Set from 64 gold to 16 diamonds
  • Experimental: Removed Diamond Armor Set
  • Experimental: Added Diamond Helmet for 5 emeralds
  • Experimental: Added Diamond Leggings for 10 emeralds
  • Experimental: Added Diamond Boots for 5 emeralds

Developer note: We've been hearing that there's too much of a difference between iron and diamond armor. As a result, we're making an experimental change, removing the diamond set and selling individual items. The chestplate has been removed due to the huge defense rating it provides.

This change is experimental and may be reverted.

Boom Box

  • Changed Knockback Boom Box from 2 emeralds to 4 diamonds

As always, if you have any thoughts on this update, please consider letting us know on either our Discord or community forums.

Treasure Wars: Update Preview Patch 1

  • Disabled Regular Boom Box
  • Changed price of Knockback Boom Box from 2 diamonds to 2 emeralds
  • Block Breaker Boom Box radius increased from 2 to 3
  • Block Breaker Boom Box is no longer throwable

Bows & Arrows

  • Reduced the price of bows from 10 diamonds to 5
  • Reverted Arrow price changes back to 16 gold for a stack of 8

Note: The short-range arrow nerf remains. Any arrows that hit a target within a short distance will have their damage halved.

Armor

  • Changed price of Iron Armor from 32 diamonds to 64 gold
  • Increased price of Diamond Armor from 20 emeralds to 30

Blast Proof Glass
