Emblem Airdrop, Kingdom Opening and Faction Establishment

The snapshot for the emblem airdrop will occur June 14th

The establishment of the faction includes an on-chain emblem airdrop. Each faction point collected will be one Emblem airdropped. Emblems are your stake in your faction. The more emblems you have, the more benefits you get from your faction.

Step 1: Faction Airdrop

Emblems will be airdropped at a Ratio of 1:1 with faction points 1 faction points is equal to 1 emblem

On June 14th, 2024, the factions will be established. Players will receive an airdrop of emblems proportional to their contribution to the faction. Every faction point collected will be 1 emblem airdropped. Emblems are your stake in your faction. The more emblems you have, the more benefits you get from your faction. See Faction Bonusfor the benefit emblems provide.

Step 2: Visit the Kingdom

Using the resources and $SFL donated, the factions will be able to establish their Kingdoms! The Kingdom is a new area on the map, north of the plaza. Inside the Kingdom, you can venture into your exclusive faction house. This is a place time for you to meet your faction members and start collecting marks. It will take two weeks for the factions to establish themselves.

Step 3: Establish the Faction House

The factions will finish their establishment July 1st, 2024. After the faction house is established, the following features will become available. These features give the benefit proportional to your ownership in the faction:

  • Access to the faction pet XP boost

  • Access to exclusive items in the faction marks shop

  • Access to purchase additional emblems

Factions Established

Factions are established July 1st, 2024.

Faction Bonus

After the faction airdrop you will be given a ranking in your faction based on the number of emblems you hold. Your ranking in the faction determines your faction bonus.

Faction bonuses are multipliers impacting the XP bonus provided by the Faction Pet, the number of marks collected during Faction Deliveries and Chores , feeding the Faction Pet and when performing Faction Maintenance.

The percentile is based on the total number of contributing players in the faction. All contributing players in a faction will be ranked. In the case of draws, the total number of marks currently owned by the players will be used as the tiebreaker.

A contributing player is a player who has is actively collecting marks via Faction Deliveries and Chores, via Faction Maintenance or via theFaction Pet. Non contributing members will not be counted when calculating percentiles, meaning your percentile could change even if your rank does not. Example

You are ranked 150th in your faction, and your faction has 5000 contributing members. Your percentile is calculated as 150/5000 which places you in the 5% bracket, yielding a 380% faction bonus.

Faction Pet

Each faction will be given a unique pet that must be fed to stay alive. However, this pet has an endless hunger. The more you feed it, the hungrier it gets. You will need to feed it 30% more than the previous day. The goal is to keep your pet alive for as many days as possible. The food's XP, will determine how satiated the pet gets. The initial 'hungry' requirement will be based on total members in a faction.

When a pet "dies", it will be inactive for 1 day. When your pet is on a streak, all faction members will recieve an XP boost

  • 3 Day streak - +10% XP

  • 8 Day streak - +20% XP

  • 15 Day streak - +30% XP

  • 30 Day Streak - +50% XP

Players with an emblem bonus will get an additional bonus based on their faction bonus rank. Example:

A pet is on an 8 day streak. The player is in the top 50% of their faction. Their total XP bonus is streak bonus +20% (0.2) multiplied by their faction bonus +150% (2.5). Total bonus = (1 + 0.2*2.5) = 150%

The top bonus for a Tier 1 faction bonus and 30 Day stream is 1 + 0.5*5 = 3.5 = 350% XP.

Feeding the pet each day will also be rewarded in marks. The amount of marks you receive is multiplied by your Faction Bonus.

Faction Deliveries and Chores

After the establishment of the faction, the faction will no longer have any use for faction points. The factions will instead give Marks for deliveries and chores. Collected marks can be used in the The Marks Shop. Deliveries and chores give out marks at a 1:1 ratio as the season ticket. In the clash of factions season, the season ticket is scrolls.

Faction Maintenance

Your faction is constantly improving & your members need your help in the house. Each week, 3 new areas will appear with a 'maintenance' icon on them:

  • Combat Preparation

  • Defense Preparation

  • Building Repairs

Each maintenance challenge will require building materials - stone, wood, iron, gold, crimstone + oil. Each challenge has a different difficulty. One is easy and one difficult. Similar to the composter, the requirements of the NPC will dynamically change each time you deliver the materials. Throughout the week these get exponentially harder.

Completing faction maintenance challenges will be rewarded in marks. The amount of marks you receive is multiplied by your Faction Bonus.

The Marks Shop

The Marks shop is available July 1st, 2024. More items including boosted and cosmetic items are currently being designed for the Marks shop for the release.

The Marks shop contains collectibles for each faction, including some unique items exclusive to given factions. To gain access to other faction items, you will need to collect marks for that faction. Collecting marks for other factions will become available after the initial eight week period spanning May 1st, 2024 to July 1st,2024. From this point on it will become possible to collect marks for other factions.

Emblem Purchases

Emblem Shop

The final formula for the bonding curve may be adjusted before release of this feature on July 1, 2024. This may be adjusted to ensure the needs of those in the emblem airdrop can be balanced with the accessibility of emblems for new players.

Players will be able to purchase emblems in a faction at any point (including after faction launch). The price of emblems will increase each day at UTC 00:00 based on the total supply of emblems.

Pricing will be based on an exponential bonding curve. The more emblems in a faction, the more expensive it will get to buy emblems. See example curve below.
