πŸ”« DrugWars Last Update’s Guide ! πŸ”«

Dear Steemians,

As most Drugwars players are aware, there has been a few updates to the game, I will try to guide you through them in this post, if you have any question, feel free to comment and I will do my best to answer your questions.

I think everybody figured out a way to settle their Primary base in order to continue playing.

The easiest way was to click under your avatar to find a spot to settle.

Map and Base system

With this new update, we understood that we will be playing from now on on a DW “World Map”.

Once you decided to settle in a territory, you could access this view where you can see other people’s bases. Gang name has been added when you click on a specific base

πŸ”« Useful information πŸ”«

Bases

  • You can only develop 5 new bases with this new “Occupation Troop”. In the future, you might be able to have some more (around 5) but you will need to pay to have them
  • As the game is today, nobody can steal your base

New Occupation Troop

This is the troop you will need to train in order to settle and create a new base

New troop “moves”

  • Occupy: To colonise a new base. You will start from scratch with this new one
  • Transport: To transport ressources from one base to another, useful to give a boost to your new settlements
  • Station: As it is called, it is to station your troops at another base. Your troops WILL participate at any fight against this base. Useful information: When a fight happens, the owner of the base will have priority over troop losses

Storage Capacity

  • The storage system changed. Until July, 25th it will stay the same except if you increased your storage capacities
  • The new system is going to be 15% of the total capacity compared to 25% before, nevertheless the total capacity of your storage building has been multiplied by 3-4x meaning that the new Safe is 2.5*3x higher than previously

Buildings

  • HQ is specific to the base as the Training Facility and all production storage buildings
  • The level of trainings you researched are common for all your troops even the one hired in a different base than the Primary
  • Pantheon level is also common to the account and not to a specific base

πŸ”« New Upcomings πŸ”«

  • More developed GangWars
  • A through tutorial for beginners
  • a WikiDrugWars to access all needed information
  • Cards with possibility to trade some
  • New Units
  • Token Listing
  • Fixing Bugs, I understand players’ frustration but do not forget the FutureShock team is small and is doing its best
  • Much more…

πŸ”« To conclude πŸ”«

I think this update is EXACTLY what I was waiting for, the game is going to be much more strategic and less about farming inactive players.

I understand that these changes should have been better explained and that there are numerous issues to fix.

Going forward, I will work with @hightouch to bring some insights to players in order for all of us to take adequate decisions and strategies.

Please do not hesitate to comment under this post for any bug / questions you have.

Come Play Drugwars and I will Give You Ressources; Big Changes are Coming !

Dear Steemians,

You all have probably heard of @drugwars game. It launched and was one of the Top 5 CryptoGame played worldwide. Here is the address to sign-up.

It used to pay rewards in Steem before it stopped and then a lot of us left the game as they saw no more interest.

At first, updates were very frequent and it slowed down during the past month. Nevertheless, a few news get me very excited.

  1. Drugwars Dollars will be implemented on Steem Engine, therefore we will soon be able to monetize some of the progress in the game. Link: https://steemit.com/drugwars/@drugwars/drugwars-dollars-on-steem-engine
  2. Drugwars communicated that a big update is coming ! We will soon be able to hold a gang territory, this will bring new missions (and rewards) as well as a new phase to the game: GangWars.
  3. This is great because in order to get players involved and increase the value of the token, you need ot have a competitive landscape where you are willing to buy this token in order to be stronger to fight other players. It is a kind of risky investment where you invest for a future reward if you succeed.

Someone at Steem Inc should hire these guys…

I am not a big defensor of @drugwars, despite I am still playing the game from time to time, I have been very critic with some of the decisions they have done…

I think they did some bad movements leaving the STEEM blockchain but I understood why they did thought…

I have to recognise that they know how to build a business from almost zero…

They have a Business case, they have a goal and a Development Plan and they are implementing the necessary changes for the game to be more and more playable every week, no doubt about…

Even if they move out of our blockchain, they are still highly supportive with STEEM… and seems they are really focused in Crypto ADOPTION…

ACCESS for free with your FACEBOOK or GOOGLE account but BUY a STEEM ACCOUNT to obtain more benefits/advantage

The game will improve and also other projects of their portfolio will be launched… It is a question of time only…In the meantime they develop their own token at Obyte (FUTURE) and they reward with both, FUTURES and STEEM…ok, maybe to get rewarded with STEEM is more complicate now since you have to pass by their forum but, come on! They are doing something really focused on bringing investors, even if they are only gamers, to the STEEM blockchain!

We should all recognise the fact they are good developers doing great business…and that is an important point to learn by others…also at the STEEM Blockchain…

You can have the best product but that is irrelevant if you don’t know how to sell it.

By the way, thanks to @beiker that told me that now you can support @drugwars with BAT tokens using Brave… as I said, they are smart and they know how to make business…

I set up already my monthly contribution of BAT to them, you deserve it.

DRUGWARS: One step back and, surprisingly, 100 Steps Forward!

The last upgrade of Drugwars doesn’t look to provide so much improvements in terms of “playability”, even worst, they removed the option of “Share your battle at STEEMIT” thus, if you were doing it regularly, and so trying to get the good upvotes of the @drugwars account, seems that it is not anymore possible… I don’t care because, I thought since the beginning that these kind of non-editable posts without content were just increasing the level of spam at the steem blockchain… so, somehow and personally I am happy for that…but if you were building your Steem account based on this sort of income, this last point seems one step back

Looking at the Discord, seems that perhaps they are deviating the share of the Drugwars post from Steem to the TokenBB forum, and looks like it may be rewarded because, if you share your battle at the forum, it creates a comment on a general post at Steem with the title “Forum Drugwars” , and this comment MAY be upvoted… I did it myself, I share one battle at the forum and I selfvoted it. The battle appears as a comment at the steem blockchain, including the upvote πŸ™‚

Besides this new thing which can be seen “counterproductive”, you know I have been very critic with Drugwars development strategy lately, this time I have to recognize they are demonstrating they have the things clearer than I was expecting in terms of Business Plan…

This last upgrade comes with one amazing option I will show you next:

Yes man, you can now create an account of @drugwars by log in with FACEBOOK or with your GOOGLE account, and this is the 100 Steps Forward I was referring at the Title…

These guys are really working hard towards crypto adoption, and more in particular towards STEEM adoption. This is a smart move from the team in order to attract gamers to STEEM, despite the game could be better of course.

This time I have to congratulate the team!!!

Well done FutureShock , I promise I will never criticize you again if you keep doing as you did this time πŸ˜‰

@toofasteddie

Done with Drug Wars. // Next Colony is starting to look like it might end up the same way.

Image result for burning weed

Its been a long time coming and the recent wipe of my armies really made it clear that i should just stop with wasting my time.

From day 1 i knew what was going to happen but that doesnt really matter now. A lot of time has passed and the drama has died down. Maybe it was actually drama that kept me playing?

At this point its getting old. The game itself is boring, there is no earning potential any more. Future tokens are worth a fraction of a cent and the mechanics are still dumb. I earned a few steem when steem was being payed out and im happy with that. Im done with Drug Wars, feel free to farm. :

Whats happening with games on Steem is actually a sad sight. Really, at this point only Steem Monsters holds my interest.

Even Next Colony seems like it will end badly. Something i had high hopes for and they rushed out a product that isnt really even a game.


All you do is restart timers on word rows.

Its silly, tedious and its dumb. Id wager there is more work and thought put into those textual RPGs made in the 80s then these two games.

Image result for textual rpgs

We need to stop rewarding this silliness.

DEVS WILL SAVE US!

No they fucking wont. Not these devs at least. Our main dev team is of questionable talent and you think Highcloud, or whatever his name is will take STEEM mainstream? No.

I know no one gives a fuck and most of people out there are either brownosing, circle jerking, vote selling…. But if there are any sane people out there, stop throwing money at anything and everything that is new and makes bold promises.

Im starting to feel like i should round up everyone, line them up in a row and do a slap-by. Might actually do it the next STEEMFEST. haha

Anyways.. Keep on… dunno… Drinking the kool-aid, i guess.

Early EXIT

It has been 69 days since I started playing and investing on Drugwars.

During all this time drugwars team have been changing almost weekly the rules of the game, I want to think that they have tried, at least with the first updates, to solve what was clearly in my opinion a Ponzi Scheme since the beginning. But not.

The last change for me is the last straw. You are not rewarded anymore with STEEM but with FUTURE token. Of course you can exchange them for STEEM in their internal market but what you get is very little for the effort you have to put by playing intensively a game that instead of fun it’s pretty boring honestly…

Even worst, if you try to buy FUTURE token you will see that 5000 FUTURE tokens costs almost 60 STEEM:

While if you want to “exchange” them by STEEM you get 3.223 STEEM

Also, if you do some simple math you will see that the reward pool has artificially changed dramatically.

Today’s prize is 68680 FUTURE Tokens, taking into account that you “can” get 1 STEEM per 1552 FUTURE tokens it means that the prize is 44 STEEM to be divided among all the players. And if you see the percentages in the above pic (4+2+2), it seems that it only corresponds to the 8% of the Daily total… The 92% or 509 STEEM is going directly and Daily to Drugwars…

I spent so much time playing on this game and believing that it would improve with the time but seems that what is happening is exactly the contrary.

They announced as well future developments and mini games as well but I don’t think they will manage to escape from the PONZI scheme system neither on them.

I am lucky because I get back all my investment in the first weeks of the game and I also got a good profit from that investment but, frankly, I tested the new rules of the games in an intensive manner yesterday and, as a conclusion, I don’t think is worth to “invest” more time on the game for the very little and unbalanced rewards you get.

However, I think it has been a good testing lab and good Repository of Lessons Learnt for future Gaming Dapps on top of the STEEM Blockchain, specially because DRUGWARS was not a Decentralized App. at all :-)…

I hope FUTURESHOCK will learn about their mistakes and finally deliver a product with a better plan and sustainable business model for everybody, not this one of course…

Drug Wars tip #1 // How to stop anyone from attacking you ever. COM week 666

You all heard about the No 1. most glorious STEEM game on STEEM. I will not go into unnecessary detail but i have to say:

Drug Wars is the da bomb. Its the 100 proof alcohol homeless people crave. Its the steroids dumb bodybuilder bouncers crave. Its the sushi Ninjas love.

Damn, arent stereotypes amazing!

At least they didnt try to make the spy unit a reference to James Bond. Looks like Johnny English, has 0 attack, always dies on his first mission.
Haha. What kind of weak ass spy is that? Why even have him wear a suit? Oh no, wait… I get it… He knows he will die 100% when you send him on a mission so hes already wearing a suit for his funeral. #ThinkingAhead!

But thats nor here nor there. Im trying to teach you how to stop anyone from attacking you ever.

So theres this guy that attacked my alt account yesterday. Whooped my ass.

Screenshot (331).png

When everything is summed up, he ended up being 80k alcohol in plus while destroying my team that is worth around 500k in resources. Alrite. Thats cool. He came out in the plus.
But that made me kind of mad. Wiped my whole team for 10 hours of alcohol production!?!
Hell no!

So what i did is the following. I didnt want to destroy his whole team, because that “wouldnt be fair” (didnt want to be a complete dick) but what i did do is be a slightly less jerk and destroy only double the resources he spent on his units then he gained from me.

Screenshot (332).png

I sent a few hundred more Rowdies afterwards.

Now consider this! Who in their right mind would attack you for resources if they knew that you would just destroy double the unit worth of resources they stole from you. No one!

Its a fool proof tactic.

This deserves to be a comedy openmic entry due to Drug Wars being ridiculously bad to the point of laughter. This is not how you set up your battles system, ffs. lol

Keep on Steeming/Whalesharing and doing drugs.. Because doing drugs is much better then playing Drug Wars. Youll live a healthier life.

Everything into Heist! // Drug Wars

Just wanted to point out a few things about the downward spiral Drug Wars is in.
We all know by now that the game will die completely if there arent drastic changes to its economy.
Finally that realization has hit many people. At this rate, it seems that aprox. every 2 days the reward pool reduces by $100. This will slow a bit but at this rate i give the game 3-4 weeks of life left in it..

That is due to the simple fact that in order for the reward pool to get filled up, you need players to spend STEEM, which is not happening due to the exponentially increasing upgrade price and the limited STEEM user base.

At one point it becomes a much better choice to roll another account then to spend on upgrades. Which most folks wont do since the reward pool is already drained..
The reward pool getting emptied could be slowed down if STEEM had a increasing number of users coming in to spend, which is not the case, not only with STEEM, but everywhere else as well.

If i were to simplify it even more: The guy that set up the economy on Drug Wars was an idiot.
He is not an idiot for making a mistake, anyone can do that. He/she is an idiot for not doing anything about it weeks ago when the problem was pointed out.
Making a mistake doesnt makes you an idiot. Being stubborn, rejecting advice, not doing anything about the problem when its pointed out to you does make you an idiot.

With this emptying of the reward pool happening, eventually Drug Wars reward pool will reach sub $50 daily reward pool and stabilize somewhere around there for some time.
But it will inevitably hit $0 or be shut down by the devs.
If they figure out the economy, and change absolutely everything, that ofc wont happen.


But still, changing everything would require them to let the reward pool drain by itself so the community wouldnt be mad about their STEEM being stolen. When the reward pool is empty, only then can they revamp everything.

Do i have big hopes that the game will survive after that time? No. Do i think the game will ever be as big as it was? No. Do i think theres a chance for them to fix this? Yes.
But then again, theres a chance ill win the lottery on Wednesday. hehe.

Still, Im one of those guys that like to give folks a benefit of the doubt. From what ive seen of the Drug Wars team they really seem to be trying lately.
Dont get me wrong, i think they are dumb as a bag of rocks and completely incompetent but i still believe they are trying and if given enough time they might be able to come up with something.

Some would say Ned and the Steemit.inc team are incompetent as well. But youre getting MIRA, arent you. πŸ˜‰

Anyways… What i wanted to say is:

If everything remains exactly the same, and you want to get back as much money as you can, PUT IT ALL IN HEIST. The upgrades are exponentially more expensive and players just wont be buying them, which means you shouldnt either.

Or, you can trust Drug Wars team to come up with something that will stop the reward pool from draining, and will make your investment in upgrades more beneficial. Its up to you.

Ill see you around and keep smart… when youre Steeming. πŸ˜‰

Drug Wars – Obyte // You should be grabbing your money if you havent already

For all those that are pissed of at Drug Wars, there might be something that might change your mind a bit.
Drug Wars just did an airdrop of their FUTURE tokens.

Screenshot (325).png

Click to claim FUTURE tokens in your Obyte wallet

What you need to do to claim these tokens is to get a Obyte (Byteball wallet). If you participated in the airdrop couple months ago you should have one already linked to your account through the STEEM attestation bot.
If you do not have one, download it here. https://obyte.org/
YOU WILL HAVE TO HAVE AT LEAST A LITTLE BIT OF BYTES TO DO THE CONVERSION.

Once you received your FUTURE tokens you can convert them to “GB” by clicking on the CHAT and adding the “Exchange bot”. From there you need to find a exchange if you want to sell the GB for STEEM.
Options are Bittrex or Upbit.

How much FUTURE you get depends on how much you spent in the game (from what i can see).

If you have 10000 FUTURE tokens that is worth around $55

So dont miss out. Or you could keep the FUTURE tokens and see if they go up in price.

You never know. You probably never expected that you will get your money back, but here it is. haha

Ill see you around. Keep on Steeming!
