Details of the Blockchain Brawlers PVP
While making this announcement, Blockchain Brawlers also hinted about an upcoming beta test. However, this will be a closed event, where selected persons will try out the soon-to-be-launched PVP mode. To those that will be chosen, they will not receive any form of training. They will have to learn while engaging in gameplay. According to the post, “the better game player will win more often than they lose.“
When the game starts, both participants will receive three cards. Likewise, they will also start with 20 Health points and 1 Power Meter point (the lowest possible amounts). Poker rules will apply, and the winner will be the one whose two cards have the higher value. That play will get of each round will receive This means that no one folds their hand and the bets have been matched.
To play, you will draw the first card facing it upwards. After which, you will choose the second one with its value hidden. This way, only partial details of your hand are available to your opposition. If the card facing up has a lower number than the one facing down, you have a regular deal. If the case is the other way round, you have an edge against your counterpart. In Block Brawlers, it is called flexing.
This is an essential aspect of gameplay and significantly affects the outcome. For example, you will only deal damage equal to your power point when the other player folds during a regular hand. However, you can add 1 more point to your power meter when you deal damage with a Flexed hand. Below is an illustration:
Power Meter = 3 and “Flexing” hand won + 1 = 4 points of total damage dealt.
However, flexing does not always guarantee success. If you flex on someone, and they match your bet, you will lose that round. This does not matter if your cards have a higher number.
