The eagerly anticipated fifth season of “Call of the Ancients” is nearing its launch, bringing a plethora of new features and mechanisms to redefine competitiveness. Among these are the introduction of a five-element restraint mechanism, the launch of the Flip Mode, the initiation of a COA Grand Prix, and a fair play system to ensure equal competition for all players. Let’s delve deeper into these updates:
Introduction to the Five Elements Restraint Mechanism
The Five Elements Restraint mechanism will be implemented across all game modes, dividing cards into five categories: ice, fire, thunder, wind, and rock, each identifiable by markers on the upper right corner of the cards. Players are encouraged to explore this rule in Quick Mode before venturing into ranked matches.
Five Elements Restraint Mechanism Rules
This new rule outlines the following interactions between elements: ice overpowers fire, fire rules over clay, thunder dominates wind, wind overcomes rock, and rock suppresses ice. This mechanism triggers under specific conditions during battles, enriching the combat experience with special effects and added layers of strategy.
However, it is essential to note that this mechanism only applies to cards with the same point value and not when attributes conflict or when cards with different scores encounter each other.
The fifth season introduces a long-anticipated feature, the Flip Mode, a fresh gameplay experience testing the players’ strategies and skills further. This mode involves a series of challenging card battles that either pave the way to victory or present obstacles in the player’s journey.
Flip Mode Playing Rules
In this mode, players bring their cards to the table, flipping them in a random order to begin the game. The victory hinges on the points revealed on the flipped cards, with the player showcasing higher points taking the win.
New COA Grand Prix
Season 5 introduces the COA Grand Prix, a platform for players to demonstrate their courage, skill, and strategy. Participants have the opportunity to team up with the best players, vying for massive rewards in a knockout round format.
COA Grand Prix Rule
Entry into the COA Grand Prix involves a tiered ARG requirement, with varying rewards for the victors. In the event of consecutive draws, an extra round is initiated, where the player with the highest cumulative points on their selected card claims victory.
Fair Play System
In response to concerns regarding deliberate non-participation, a new system has been instituted to penalize such behavior, fostering a fair and competitive environment for all.
