Naraka: Bladepoint Update Adds Koi Bonanza Event & Reputation System

The update's Koi Bonanza event rewards players for gathering tokens in-match, while the new reputation system punishes those who leave games early.

The newest update for Naraka: Bladepoint introduces a new event called Koi Bonanza, along with a reputation system that punishes quitters. Released this past August, Naraka: Bladepoint is a 60-player battle royale game that features a parkour movement system along with hack-and-slash combat. Naraka: Bladepoint has grown rapidly since release due to its subversion of the battle royale genre, focusing more on fast-paced melee combat rather than the genre's traditional shooter gameplay.

Naraka: Bladepoint has already received content updates and events since its official Steam launch. On September 15, the title received its first newly added hero, not including the Onmyoji-Naraka: Bladepoint crossover hero, Yoto Hime. This new hero, Valda Cui, was released alongside the game's Mid-Autumn Festival event, which rewarded players for completing challenges and using the new hero. Now, it seems the developers are already moving to the next event with their latest update.

In an announcement from 24 Entertainment, the September 28 update brings the new Koi Bonanza event, which sees players gathering six Koi Tokens during each match's preparation stage. All players will receive rewards if the tokens are collected bef0re the match starts, with extra gifts given to those who reach the top 30 in Trio matches or top 10 in Solo matches. The rewards for this event will be obtainable three times a day for the length of the event. Alongside this occasion, developers announced a new reputation system that punishes players who leave games early, especially in Trio games. Players will now be ranked based on a reputation number, which goes up for completing matches and down for leaving games early. If this score gets too low, there will be temporary bans to the game's battle royale mode, leaving players to fight in the Bloodbath mode to raise their rank again.

Other smaller changes will be introduced to the game with this update as well, such as the addition of sound effects when hit in Soul Form, and the new Shadow Poison status effect. This new effect occurs after "Shadow Corruption shrinks for the third time," and  "players within the Shadow Corruption will gradually be affected by shadow poison. The poison will begin to recede after leaving Shadow Corruption." This comes alongside a couple of new items in the shop, adjustments for heroes, weapons, and several bug fixes and optimizations.

This has been an eventful month for Naraka: Bladepoint, with its releases of a new character and two events. According to SteamDB, the title sits at an average peak player count of over 140,000 (at the time of writing). Despite some bumps following the game's launch, such as the unannounced bot matches that angered Naraka: Bladepoint players and its controversial inclusion of microtransactions with battle pass system, it appears the battle royale title is getting its footing since its release just over a month ago, especially with these continued updates.
