Metagame Mockup


Originally published at:

Here’s an early mockup of how our league territory control metagame works in Hex Gambit. You’ll choose a space on the big map to play for, and the Victory Points you earn in that game (win or lose) get applied there for your faction. Whoever owns the most territory at the end of the season gets the big victory trophy! Above, we’re simulating a bunch of wins and losses to see how things might progress.

If you haven’t already, be sure to sign up for our mailing list to get email reminders when we hit big milestones, like the launch of our Kickstarter, Early Access/beta, and the official release.


So we’re playing small board games… inside of a giant board game?

It’s genius!


Have you guys given any thought on the balance of the factions? What would happen if one of the factions had the top 20 players in it?


It’s something we’re considering and we’ve got a few approaches but haven’t settled on a solution just yet.


We’ve had a lot of meetings on team balance and skill ratings and stuff. Lots of ideas, sure to be tweaked a lot once we get into Early Access.


Good to know you guys are giving it a lot of thought. I have a million questions about hexgambit, I try to hold myself back from asking too many haha.

I can’t help but to ask one more though, how much of the game revolves around the factions? Are there any bonuses given to the winning faction winners other than bragging rights?

Basically what I’m wondering is, if I pick a faction that never wins, can I still excel at the game and have a good time?


there are no bonuses for factions. We plan on having rewards though at the end of seasons for both faction winners as well as high ranked players in each faction. If you wish to basically ‘ignore’ the faction meta-game you could and still climb the ranks.


Please make it a good balance between the factions so we won’t get a For Honor case of factions war.


you referring to the ubisoft game?


Indeed I am (guess I should have put it more clearly).
Even though there are 3 factions, mine was never even close to win competed to the other two.


Team Instinct never had a chance either


ah, not familar with the game unfortunately.


What is your favorite game ever? Not counting outwitters of course :wink:


Mystic ftw!! :blue_heart:

I have a friend who is instinct and I believe he still plays. Has been making a bike trip at like 10 PM nightly since the game came out


at the moment? Overwatch.



Ever notice that the TF2 and Overwatch communities have some kind of rivalry?


What is tf2?


Team Fortress 2

Overwatch was seen by TF2 players as a ripoff because of the heavy inspiration it takes from it, except it also draws an aspect of MOBA gameplay
