How to get started with CryptoWar - version 2
The version 2 of CryptoWar $xBlade released on 4 Jan 2022. Recent weeks, the market has been in massive massacre but what won’t kill you will make you stronger. It is what $xBlade has been going through so far.
In bloody days, $xBlade is one of most impressive GameFi Metaverse tokens on the market.
If you have participated in CryptoWar since November 2021 or in early of 2022, you should be aware of $xBlade strength. From this proof, does it make sense to call $xBlade as a real hidden gem which already passed through some hardest tests on the volatile market?
Also, we invite you to read another article from Tri Ton - our Co-CEO
Now, let’s get started with CryptoWar version 2
In order to play the game you will need to have a Hero + a weapon which can be minted or bought on our in-game Marketplace. You must have $xBlade to buy such NFT items. There are a few ways to buy $xBlade.
Buy $xBlade on exchanges: Pancakeswap, Poocoin, Coinsbit.io, etc.
You will have to prepare a compatible wallet such as Metamask, Trust, C98, SafePal, etc. and connect it to our website and start playing the game. Else, you will see a warning like this
For instance, let’s use Metamask wallet.
Step 1: Set up a MetaMask account
Step 2: Connect your MetaMask to Binance Smart Chain. Read this guide from Binance
Step 3: Make sure you have BNB or BUSD in your Metamask (available for purchase on Binance, Coinbase, FTX, etc.), especially BNB which is necessary to pay gas for your fight or transactions to mint Heroes, open boxes or buying NFTs in in-game Marketplace.
Step 4: Buy $xBlade on PancakeSwap
When you connect your Metamask, there is a message
As you can see, you will need to have
$xBlade to mint/ buy Heroes/ weapons
BNB for gas fee
How about initial cost to play the game?
As of writing, with Oracle, it requires about 6400 $xBlade to mint a new hero at level 1.
Basic cost $250. Read more details
The basic cost for 1 Hero (if you mint it) is $250. Fortunately, by minting your first Hero, you will be rewarded ONE free weapon.
Fortunately, we also have in-game Marketplace in which you can find discounted Heroes & weapons. It means you can buy Heroes from Marketplace at cheaper or higher price than $250 AND one more advantage is you can choose Element for your Heroes (Fire, Water, Earth, Lightning).
How to buy a Hero on in-game Marketplace?
Go there: https://play.cryptowar.network/market
Click on Marketplace icon & go to that page.
There are two sub-tabs for: Hero, Weapon. Choose a specific one that matches you shopping need.
You can use Search feature to narrow down the list of NFTs on the market. A few search options by
Min/ Max Price
Sort price Descendingly/ Ascendingly
In this example, filtering by Earth element, level 1-10, we find 2 available Heroes on the market as follows. If you like it, click on Purchase, finish the transaction and get a hero you want.
How to get weapon(s) to play the game?
There are three ways to get weapon(s)
Mint a new hero (with an empty wallet which does not have any weapon inside at the time you mint your first new hero). You will receive ONE free weapon

Choose a stamina you want to use for fighting, from 40, 80, 120, 160 to 200
You will get both $xBlade and $xGem for each fight.
$xBlade: the stronger weapon you use, a more powerful monster you fight against, so if you win, you will get higher reward. Else, if you lost, you will be rewarded ~ $0.4 in $xBlade to cover part of gas fee. Join the CryptoWar Fight Feed for more details
$xGem: non-tradeable currency but it can be used to purchase in-game NFTs. To check your total $xGem as well as use it, let’s go to Inventory page, then choose Fragment. For now, 800 $xGem required to open a Blind Box but no worry, there will be more use cases for $xGem such as Common Box, Rare Box, Epic Box.
If you have yet collected enough $xGem, let’s fight more and open the box.

What is a best strategy to fight in order to get max $xBlade in reward and save gas fee?
