Aradena Development Update September 2022

Discord roles

In our last update, we launched the Elder Gateway, which introduced NFT staking as a requirement to access in-game features such as Questing. This meant that the bot that we used in Discord to assign our holders with roles was no longer up to the job. Unfortunately, it’s not able to read data about how many NFTs people own from the staking smart contract, only from web3 wallets.

New user login/register

Web3 games struggle with barriers to entry, and requiring a wallet to view portions of the world means many people immediately abandon their investigation. We want to improve the onboarding experience for our web visitors and let people explore more before connecting a wallet.

Leaderboards and analytics

While there has been some healthy competition in the Discord server around who is levelling up the fastest and who has been lucky enough to stack a heap of Silver Coins from Questing, we wanted to ramp up the competition with an official leaderboard.

Aradena Silver Coins Leaderboard
  • Player stats like the number of active players and average warriors per holder
  • NFT stats such as the floor price and all-time volume
  • Questing & rewards stats including info on the number of quests and total Silver Coin rewards
  • Skills stats show you the warrior level distribution across the Strategy, Survival & Leaderships skill trees
  • Title stats show you the warrior title distribution across the Strategy, Survival & Leaderships skill trees

Bug fixes

Finally, we have addressed several minor bugs across our site. One of the smaller updates included a fix on some of the quests paying out double rewards, whilst touching up the layout and icons on the questing rewards summary pages. We also fixed some small issues with the filtering system within the Tavern. These are just two examples of quick fixes that were pushed live with this update to improve the user experience across the World of Aradena.
