Arena Weekly Challenge
On July 5, Crabada introduced the Arena Weekly Challenge, as part of Battle Game v1.0.7 update. To take part in matches, players must purchase Arena Tickets. Every participant may hold a maximum of 3 tickets each.
By participating in Arena matches, players can earn Arena Points (AP). Every start of the week, 1,000 default APs are given away to the participants. The amount of points accumulated through battles will determine a player’s Arena Ranking.
Setting up a defense team is a primary requirement for players who wish to take part in the Arena Challenge. Once established, the defense team will be listed for other opponents to attack.
Daily challenges include battling 5 randomly generated opponents with similar AP, with the option of exacting “Revenge” (grudge match), in case a player loses.
On August 14, 2022, Crabada also introduced the Battle Bounty Campaign mode.
Battle Bounty uses the existing “Duel Mode” to collaborate with other games within or outside the Avalanche Network. It also aims to help new players to discover Crabada and expose its fans to other projects in the space.
In this game mode, Bounties are posted on the Bounty Board with a QR code attached to it. Users can have the code scanned via the Crabada Battle Game to initiate a hunt.
Players can earn in-game rewards by beating a 3-crab team and clearing the Bounty list before time runs out.
