When you are under attack, you will be notified of the attack and you cannot access your base until the attack is completed.

Under attack notification Heroes of Mavia

Such attacks from other players can get pretty costly, as you can lose a lot of resources.

Hence building a strong defence at your base will minimize the losses.

Battle

By choosing Battle, you get to visit, destroy and pillage other players’ lands. Ranked Battles will cost Gold to find a match.

Battle in Heroes of Mavia

Each Battle has a set time of 150 seconds to destroy, and plunder as many resources as possible. Note you cannot only deploy your units in the red zone.

Battles in Heroes of Mavia

You will be limited to the number of units recruited and available at your Rally Point. However, you can only use the units once – once deployed at the battle you cannot reuse them in the next battle and you have to recruit new units to fill the vacancy. 

The Battle ends when (1) you have destroyed the enemies’ entire base, (2) the timer runs out, (3) you choose the “End Battle” button.

End Battles in Heroes of Mavia

You can retain the loot you have stolen irrespective of whether you are successful in destroying the enemies’ entire base. However, you earn trophies if you win, and if you lose you lose trophies. 

Missions

You can also earn Gold and Oil by completing missions. Under the Battle button, players can choose to go on Missions to earn Gold, Oil and Sapphire. Completing a Mission will open the gates to the next mission. Looted Gold and Oil will not be replenished if you return to the completed missions, but you can return to the old missions if you have not looted all the Gold and Oil. Completing missions will not increase Battle and Leaderboard ranking.

Is This the Right Game for Me?

We've summarized our experiences with Heroes of Mavia based on the points below. 

Pros

  • Easy to sign up and start playing via the Google Play and Android store app. The House of Mavia Twitter account has a video showing how to link the account to your wallet. 

  • Good beginners tutorial – pretty easy to follow thereafter.

  • Very nice graphics and visuals.

  • Good strategy building – on best placement of buildings in the base.

  • There is a free-to-play version available.

  • More skillful players will be able to test their skills and earn Mavia Tokens in the Mavia Arena. 

Cons

  • Have to wait for the attack to finish before you can play. 

  • Battles are one-sided – cannot actively watch and protect your Base. 

  • My mobile phone tends to heat up and battery depletes fast. 

  • Mining Gold and Oil resources can be time consuming, especially when other players attack and loot your resources. However, players have the option to buy Sapphire for fiat and/or crypto currency – which is not cheap.

Conclusion

In conclusion, Heroes of Mavia offers an immersive gaming experience set in a dynamic web3 environment, blending base-building strategy with multiplayer battles on the blockchain. With its diverse currency system comprising MAVIA, Ruby, and Sapphire tokens, players can engage in various in-game activities, from voting on ecosystem decisions to crafting legendary NFT items.
