Town Star Introduces New Rewards and Daily Challenge Updates
Gala Games' flagship farm simulator game Town Star gets two major improvements. Added new ways to earn mechanics, and a new way to calculate the amount of $TOWN earned in daily challenges.
Starting March 1st, daily challenges will no longer require 1,000 stars, but instead use a progressive algorithm to calculate how many stars players must earn based on how far ahead their farm is.
Your first daily challenge in the new town is to get 500 stars. After completing the challenge, the next day's task is to get 750 stars. After completing the daily challenge, the next challenge will require you to earn 1000 stars. This general trend will continue into the series' 31st Daily Challenge, which requires you to earn a staggering 8,000 stars.
If you don't complete daily challenges, your star requirement will never increase. If you get stuck on the 3600 star requirement for the 13th challenge in the sequence, you'll stay there.
In addition to this update, titled "Dynamic Daily Challenges," Town Star also announced the introduction of a new TOWN power mechanic, improvements to Gala power calculation, and a willingness to restart tournament servers in the coming months.
Enhanced prize pool for monthly contests
Typically, monthly tournaments reward the top 400 players with bonuses and/or other prices. This month, Gala Games announced that the first 1,000 players will be rewarded.
In addition to expanding rewards, Gala Games confirmed that a Battle Pass is not currently required to earn $TOWN or participate in tournaments. Previously announced in February, the Battle Pass would be released alongside Town Star Season 2 at the end of the Early Access phase.
Perhaps the biggest update is that Town Star will now reward you with $TOWN based on the amount of $TOWN staked in your account, which constitutes your TOWN Power.
If you've played Town Star, you'll notice a lightning bolt with a star in the upper left corner of the avatar graphic. This shows your Gala Power level, which as of now, is determined by the sum of $GALA and $TOWN you hold in your Inventory Treasure Chest using the formula (GALA + (TOWNx2)), which is then applied to the table .
GALA Power controls the number of NFTs you can place in the game. Completing daily tasks requires at least one NFT to earn any rewards. Profitability increases based on the type of NFTs placed and the number of NFTs in the farm. Therefore, holding more $GALA tokens and $TOWN tokens can increase your chances of earning $TOWN in the game by placing more NFTs.
This is a great solution to ensure that the price of $TOWN remains stable and/or grows over time, as most people are now incentivized to hold it rather than sell it.
In addition to GALA Power, you now have a TOWN Power value. Your daily reward will give you more or less $TOWN based on your TOWN Power value. Here is the formula for calculating the reward:
Town Star also confirmed that they are gradually removing $TOWN from GALA Power calculations. It now has a multiplier of 2, but for the next 90 days it will be 0. This means that holding TOWN will not affect your GALA Power, only the internal economy of Town Star, not the Gala Games ecosystem as a whole.
