This proposal invites members of our community to decide on rescheduling events related to Shadowcorns and the transition to XAI blockchain. In short, we suggest postponing “Twilight Tactics: Season 2” until the XAI migration is complete. This approach aims to enhance the gameplay experience and allows our blockchain team to dedicate their efforts fully to the migration.
The Shadowcorn collection, with its limited availability, has become a valuable asset in our ecosystem, attracting new users with its straightforward utility of on-chain gameplay and collectibility.
The transition to XAI promises significant improvements, especially for Twilight Tactics gameplay, which fully operates on-chain. We anticipate that the introduction of ultra-fast, gas-free transactions will increase player engagement beyond what was observed in Season 1.
The upcoming 3.1 patch release will introduce new elements such as Tier 2 and Tier 3 minions in the “Shadow Forge,” alongside a one-month leaderboard for crafting. This will enable players to engage in new rituals and utilize Tier 1 minions to strengthen their forces.
The “Shadow Forge” will remain operational until we transition to XAI. However, a key consideration is whether to proceed with “Twilight Tactics Season 2” as initially planned or postpone it until after the migration.
If the community votes to postpone the second season of Twilight Tactics, we will release a two-month Unicorn versus Shadowcorn Leaderboard that acts as a simulation of Twilight Tactics. Shadowcorn holders will be able to earn points and contribute to their faction by crafting minions, while Unicorn holders will be able to earn points by completing in-game Dark Forest event quests. Similar to Twilight Tactics, in addition to individual leaderboards, there will be a faction leaderboard that will provide members of the winning faction with extra rewards based on their contribution to the faction.
This leaderboard will provide rewards that would have been sourced in Twilight Tactics, outside of Soul Bound Dark Marks. These rewards will include UNIM, Rift Crystals, Unicorn Souls, and MORE (did someone say XAI rewards)?!
In addition to the leaderboard rewards, Shadowcorns will still passively earn rewards from failed Dark Forest quests that will be split between holders based on their Shadowcorn Prestige. Shadowcorn Prestige can be increased by obtaining more Shadowcorns, or crafting Minions. Higher tier Minions will provide more Prestige points.
If approved, this leaderboard event will begin in March and span until May. We believe this will align nicely with our migration plans and place us in a great spot to ensure a smooth transition to the next Twilight Tactics season in Q3.
Accepting this proposal not only allows the blockchain team to focus on the migration, but ensures that player experience in season two of Twilight Tactics is drastically improved through free and quick transactions, player experience optimizations, improved balancing, and MORE!
To reemphasis, if this proposal is accepted shadow corns and unicorns will still be able to compete for the rewards that should have been given out through Twilight Tactics.
Given the positive reception of the Shadow Forge and Minion crafting, we are confident that the 3.1 release, together with a new Shadowcorn versus Unicorn leaderboard, will effectively support Shadowcorn gameplay until the transition to XAI is fully realized.
