SteemKnights - How the Rewardsystem workssteemCreated with Sketch.

in #steemknights2 years ago (edited)

Hello Lords and Ladies,

we want to give you some more detailed information on how SteemKnights rewards you for playing.

Steemed Battles


First of all to clarify some confusion that's been around: You can play SteemKnights completely free.
However you need to understand that we can't create Steem from nothing, so for you to earn Steem you will need to invest some first.

Your main income source will be the rewards from the battles directly. If you defeat an opponent you will receive the waged amount minus a 10% battle fee. (20% of this battle fee will be redistributed to the player with our daily payout, see further below). Additionally to the Steem you will also earn Knight Emblems, regardless of winning or losing.

Btw. we do have fixed lobbies with a predetermined amount of Steem to bet, instead of custom amounts.

Why predetermined amounts?
We need this for match making reasons.

Daily Payout


The daily payout will be distributed according to your loyalty and the amount of Knight Emblems accumulated. It will always be added to your balance at 01:00 am UTC.

What is Loyalty?


Loyalty is our system to give active users an advantage over inactive users. For inactive users the loyalty is decreased by 1% every day, while active users will gain 1% per steemed battle up to a maximum of 120%.

What does it mean to be inactive?
Inactivity for us is defined as a day (1am - 1am) without playing a steemed battle.
(We will however not decrease your loyalty if you haven't earned any emblems yet. So you can train as long as you want on the free2play games without being disadvantaged)

What does it mean to be active?
As mentioned above active means to play a steemed game.

What are Knight Emblems?


Knight Emblems represent the glory you earned while playing and like mentioned influence how much you will earn from the daily payout.

There are 2 ways to earn Knight Emblems:

Steemed Battles


For every Steem you bet you will receive 100 Knight Emblems if you win and half that amount for the loser.

Example:
@mwfiae fights against @cloud925 in a steemed game with a bet of 100 Steem.
@mwfiae loses the fight and receives 5000 Knight Emblems as consolation prize.
Meanwhile @cloud925 receives the full amount of 10000 Knight Emblems.

Refsystem


If a player directly referred by you earns Knight Emblems via a steemed battle you as the referrer will earn 10% of the Knight Emblems additionally.

Example:
In the fight above, @mrbandler referred @cloud925 and earned 1000 Knight Emblems.
@cloud925 will still get the full amount of 10000 Knight Emblems.

Also the referred player will get a Queen's Blessing for the first 3 days!

You will find your referral link in your profile on the SteemKnights-Website.

Blessings


There also exists a way to increase the amount of Knight Emblems for a steemed fight even further!
These are our Blessings:

Note that each Blessing lasts for 3 whole days (72h) after purchasing, so it's advisable to use it as much as possible in that timeframe!
Also note that 20% of the Steem you payed will be used for the daily payout increasing everyone's earnings!

Will Blessings stack, what happens if I purchase more than one?
The effects of the Blessings won't stack. Instead if you buy another Blessing it will prolong the time the blessing is effective.

Examples:

  • If you have 2 Queens Blessings you will have 6 days with a 20% bonus, instead of 3 days with 40% bonus.
  • If you got 1 Blessing and you already used it for 1,5 days and you purchase another one you will have 4,5 days of blessings left.
Free Blessings

First as mentioned above every user who used a referral link to register will get a Queen's Blessing for free.
Secondly every player who pre-registered before the 28th of September 2019 and has deposited at least 5 Steem until 10 am UTC to @steemknights.app will get an additional Queen's Blessing.

Why 2 hours before the launch?
We will process and give out blessing manually and that will take some time 😉

How long will these free blessings last?
Every Blessing will last for 3 days, regardless of whether they were purchased or gifted from us.

What is the formular used for the daily payout?


User Payout = User Loyalty * User Knight Emblems * DailyPot / weightedEmblems

What are weighted Emblems
Most of the above should be pretty self explanatory. However the weighted Emblems need a little bit more detail.
The weightedEmblems is the sum of all Knight Emblems from every player times their respective loyalty.

Example:
@mwfiae has 100 Knight Emblems and a loyalty of 100%.
@cloud925 has 100 Knight Emblems and a loyalty of 50%.
@mrbandler has 50 Knight Emblems and a loyalty of 120%.

This means @mwfiae will add 100 (100 * 100%) to the weightedEmblems.
@cloud925 will add 50 to the weightedEmblems.
@mrbandler will add 60 to the weightedEmblems.

That means the weightedEmblems in our example would be 210 (100 + 50 + 60).
Therefore the payout for a 630 Steem daily payout would be as following:

@mwfiae receives 300 Steem. (630 * 100 / 210)
@cloud925 receives 150 Steem.
@mrbandler recieves 180 Steem


To sum it all up: SteemKnights is a pretty rewarding game!

If you have any further questions about the game come join us on Discord and we will be happy to answer.

Also don't forget to pre-register and deposit some steem to get your free Blessing from us!

And if you haven't noticed already only 1 more day until our big SteemMonsters-Tournament where the first place will get 300 Steem and we will distribute a total of 620 Steem with no entry fee attached.

greetings, @steemknights

excelent. I think you can put 2 numbers betwen 1 and 10, like 3 and 5. What do you think??

thank you and have a nice day

Greetings @julisavio,

First thank you for the feedback, very much appreciated!
Our initial thought was to keep the amount of lobbies rather small so matchmaking is easier and people will sooner find an opponent. But I will discuss this with the team and if more people would want a 3 and 5 Steem Lobby we would of course reconsider :)

... most interesting ... but very weird that this is the first i hear and if it werent for the feature in @pennsif news i maybe still might not have ... sounds actually sustainable the way you do it (IF the revenue covers the cost ofc assuming you still need a server somewhere)

cute U.I. too, dare i ask what engine you are using ? or is it custom-made ?

... not gonna steal it, have my own lol, just curious

Thanks for the mention of my daily Steem News.

Hi @yapcat,

well it isn't that weird considering our introduction post was only a week before! :)

So we do require the help from all of you to make SteemKnights as widely known as possible!

cute U.I. too, dare i ask what engine you are using ? or is it custom-made ?

We do use unreal engine :) But of course most of the game logic itself was made custom-made 😉

Hi!
Explain, please

First as mentioned above every user who used a referral link to register will get a Queen's Blessing for free.
Secondly every player who pre-registered before the 28th of September 2019 and has deposited at least 5 Steem until 10 am UTC to @steemknights.app will get an additional Queen's Blessing.

So it will be "Queen's Blessing for free" - what period?

and "additional Qeen's Blessing" will summarize to the previous "free" ?

Will it be 20% + 20% = 40% Knights Emblems?

Hi @vicaaciv,

these are good points, thanks for asking!

Every Blessing is valid for 3 days and Blessings don't stack their effect.

Example:
If you have 2 Queens Blessings you will have 6 days with a 20% bonus.
If you got 1 Blessing and you already used it for 1,5 days and you purchase another one you will than have 4,5 days of blessings left.

Note: Blessings that were rewarded/bought before the launch will start at the launch so it's safe to already buy them.

Hope that clarifies things, I will update the post accordingly.

I had someone ask an interesting question in one of the campaign topics for Steemknights I been running to get new players to your game. They were wondering if it was possible to get linked to me as the person who referred them. They signed up without a referral and as I offer ongoing prizes to those who use my links they would like to get linked to me. The comment can be found below.

Hi @rentmoney,

as long as they weren't referred by anybody else yet it's of course possible!

They just need to sign in again with your link.
Players also have the possibility to directly set an referral ingame once the game launches.

But once they have one set it isn't possible to change afterwards.

That's great news but It leaves me with one question.

Players also have the possibility to directly set an referral ingame once the game launches.

If someone uses my link to sign up today, once the game launches are they able to remove me as their referral via setting someone else as a new referral or is the one time manual referral set only for players who signed up without one?

Anybody who was referred by you will forever stay that way and won't be able to change that fact :)
Only the players who signed up without a link are able to change it. (Either via login with a reflink after creating the account or manually setting it ingame).

-@mwfiae

I was 99% sure that is what you meant but I wanted to be 100% sure :)

Nice system you have in place to allow those who missed out on signing up under someone to do so.

No problem!

I think it's essential for the game to be as fair and social as possible 😊
(With a little bit of competition to spice things up of course! 😉 )
