Farcana Autumn Tournament Recap
The highly anticipated Farcana Autumn Tournament took place on November 11-12, featuring 4v4 battles. From 11 am - 7 pm daily (UTC +4), the arenas were opened for players worldwide to fight for their Stars. At the end of each day, the top 100 players got to win from the prize pool of $3250 in BTC. The higher the player’s position on the leaderboard, the higher the prize.
But before we dive into the recap, let's talk about the game — Farcana. Farcana is a team-based shooter game that's all about strategy and skill. Players are divided into two teams of four players. Players choose a Star with different roles — frontliner, tactician, healer, or disruptor — to fight for. Each of these Stars has its own abilities and weapons.
The Farcana Autumn Tournament
The tournament brought together players worldwide who competed in 4v4 team-based battles in the arenas. The 2-day event was action-packed, resulting in a total of 663 matches. Teams strategized and executed tactics during each match, engaging in intense battles that made every moment count.
Once players joined the game, they had the opportunity to choose from the current roster of Stars — Diana, Cerberus, Muaddi, Q, Teacher, and Sherwood. Each of these Stars has a unique role to play, such as Frontliner, Tactician, Healer, or Disruptor. This allowed players to strategize and coordinate their efforts effectively as they worked together to achieve victory.
Farcana’s matchmaking system matched players to form a team of 4 players who would compete against another team of 4.
The Road to the Autumn Tournament (Playtests and Preparations)
Before the Farcana Autumn Tournament, we had 2 playtests. The first playtest event took place from October 28-29, allowing players to test the latest features and improvements. This 2-day trial run allowed squads to get a glimpse of what to expect at the tournament and refine their strategies accordingly. The second playtest was held from November 4-5, providing one last practice opportunity before the main event.
We gathered helpful feedback from participants of both playtests and used it to enhance the gameplay experience during the Farcana Autumn Tournament.
