Rules and Features
In SamuraiRising, your Battle Card NFT is the heart of the game. It provides utility and value to the SamuraiLegends ecosystem. Your Battle Cards fight against another player’s deck, or a bot, to be able to earn $KOKU. In this setting, gamers who play regularly and strategically, acquire more $KOKU.
RULES OF THE GAME
Your Game Deck consists of 5 NFT battle cards
A player who owns only 1 NFT can still play the game by receiving additional temporary cards, although the rewards will be decreased. To earn the normal rewards per match, a minimum of 5 NFTs is required
System will search for an opponent within your given Matchmaking Tier for 15 seconds
In an event where no player is found you will be matched with a bot to play against with same rewards
You start the game by holding 3 cards
Each player picks a card, and the opposing warriors start their duel. The winner of each duel is determined by the Power (1 weakest and 10 strongest) and Elemental Advantage
In the event of the same power between opponent’s cards, and no elemental advantage, a duel is decided with a coinflip (50/50)
Rarity influences how much Energy an NFT provides, which determines how many games you can play
The card on the right is hidden from your opponent until revealed
If the furthest card on the right is defeated, the consecutive card drawn will also be hidden
The game lasts for 5 duels and the player who still has undefeated cards WINS
If you get timed out you will lose the match

Imperial Duels is Samurai Legends Tier Matchmaking system. The goal is to allow everyone to play against opponents with similar power distribution. In this way, all players get to win matches through strategy, without worry of being matched against an opponent with a higher tier deck.
To assist our players in determining the tier of their battle card decks, we have incorporated a DECK CALCULATOR in our game site.
Deck Tier is calculated from the Deck Score:
It is determined by multiplying each cards Power in a deck to the power of 2 and combining these figures
There are 3 Deck Tiers:
Tier 1: 5-65
Tier 2: 66-190
Tier 3: 191-500
With matchmaking in effect, each tier has its corresponding rewards.
The Table below shows rewards based on MM Tier:
To earn rewards you need to win duels, with the exception in the lowest Tier
To be competitive and to have the best in-game advantage in SamuraiRising, you should optimize your Game Deck based on the Deck Score and Element and Power composition.
A Player having a higher Deck Score in the appropriate Deck Tier will have an advantage over someone having a lower Deck Score.
Here are some popular deck strategies to enhance your gameplay:
Two Elemental Strategy
It is comprised of 2 opposing elements with each consisting of 1 high-powered card. This gives you a higher chance to beat the polar opposite elements in the opponent’s deck.
One Of Each Element Strategy
It includes cards with all 4 elements and a balanced Power distribution among cards. This will protect your deck from all the possible elemental combinations that your opponent could have.
5x 10 Power cards is the absolute max a player can have for a Game Deck
