Triad Wars Co-Op Raiding and "On the Horizon"
On of the biggest complaints we had when we reviewed Triad Wars on a recent Free to Play Cast was a common complaint you can see on United Front Games' forums or social media; the free to play game just felt like a single player game.
Once you get above the rank of Blue Lantern, yes the game does open up and let you raid other real life players to steal from their rackets, but the asynchronous gameplay means you aren't actually raiding directly against a player controlled character or defending yourself against one.
United Front Games has heard this feedback loud and clear and has provided players with a bit of a peek at what is coming in the future of the free to play title.
Matchmaking is on the list of additions to make in the short term. This means instead of AI opponents populating your map, after you achieve 49er rank, you'll see real life players of similar skill and ranking. After that addition, United Front Games plans to give priority matchmaking to players on your friends list when online.
This still doesn't quite get past the hurdle of Triad Wars feeling like a single player game though. That's where a more long term idea, and one United Front Games says they have been working on since the beginning, comes in: Co-Op raiding. Raiding with your friends and sharing rewards is the basic idea, but Triad Wars may be far from actually implementing this. According to their recent dev blog, regarding Co-Op raiding "...we’re focused on making the core game fun and rewarding, because we need a solid game foundation to underpin the whole experience. We’re not ready to commit to a specific timeline or date because we want to do it right, and we don’t want to release anything that isn't ready. It’s definitely on the horizon!"
Guess we have a while before we'll actually be seeing our friends on our screens in Triad Wars, but at least it's in the long term plan!
