**previously known as Warbots**RoboRivals is a bot universe containing many fun multiplayer minigames. The first game is called Plasma Duel – a highly competitive 1v1 fighting game. Your goal is to defeat your opponent in a best-of-three rounds match. Each round is 30 seconds long and if both players are standing when the clock expires, the player with more health wins the round. You lay waste on your opponent using your plasma rifle and various abilities. The game requires Internet connection (3G, 4G, or WiFi). GL & HF!
The Plasma Rifle is your primary vehicle for creating mayhem. To use the Plasma Rifle, tap and hold the green reticle next to your bot and pull back to adjust the angle and velocity of the projectile. If the reticle turns red, that means your bot is unable to complete the shot. When you are ready, release the reticle. After a brief charging period, the rifle will shoot a powerful projectile in the direction you set.
You can shoot as quickly as you want, but keep in mind that the rifle takes time to properly charge. The faster you shoot, the smaller the projectiles and their damage and thus the less effective you will be. Projectiles are the same color as the bot that launched them, making it easy to distinguish your shots from those of your opponent. If opposing projectiles collide and they have equal charges, they will get completely canceled out. If the charges are different, the more highly charged projectile will get its charge and damage potential reduced by the amount of the less charged projectile, while the less charged projectile will get canceled out.
Your second option in gaining an edge over your opponent is using abilities. Currently, there are 9 abilities: EMP, Repair Kit, Energize, Spread, Burst, Flashbang, Aegis, Armor, Autorepair. Each ability comes with a different usage limit (ranging from once per round to multiple times per round) and cost (in Helium-3 cans that your bot uses to start the ability).
You can select up to 3 different abilities to create a combat strategy unique to your preferred playing style. As long as you have enough He-3 cans, you can then trigger the abilities by tapping their icons in the top right corner. Note that abilities do not use cans when playing a Practice or a Challenge game.
The Plasma Duel league is organized in quarterly seasons. The current BETA seasons runs March – June 2013. At the end of each season, ranking and statistics are reset, while preserving a summary of players’ performance.
Only League games count towards your ranking – Practice and Challenge games do not. You start out with 1000 points and a bonus pool of 100 points, which replenish at a rate of 10 points per day. Bonus points work by doubling any points you win in a regular League game.
When playing a League game, we do our best to match you against an opponent of similar skill. Points won or lost are determined by the skill of your opponent as well as your personal rank. Please make sure to have a stable Internet connection to avoid disconnects, which count as a loss as well.
Challenge games let you play against a friend. Simply type their nickname and search to verify that they are online. Once they confirm, you get a chance to see who comes out on top!
