  • 1. Concept Game for Twitter By: Scott McIntosh A Twitter API game by Scott McIntosh
  • 2. What is Twar? <ul><li>TWAR stands for Twitter War. It’s a way to “Finally use all those followers for something by turning them into your own personal army!” </li></ul><ul><li>The application takes the number of followers of a user and makes them their “regular army”. Plus the amount of times their posts have been RT’d (“Cavalry” = 50 troops per Retweet in the past week) and gives them a final total number of troops. Plus Mercenaries purchased. </li></ul><ul><li>Then the application decides who wins based on the total number of troops and displays the action in a box on the battlefield page. The box fills in with dead Twitter birds each representing a player’s troops. </li></ul><ul><li>Winning a battle gives a Twitter user 1 pt and all players of the game are displayed in the Twarrior rankings in order of how many points they have. The Twarrior with the most points is at the top of the Twarrior ranking list and so on from there down… </li></ul>
  • 3. How do I play? <ul><li>All players must follow TWAR at http://www.twitter.com/twar , this allows TWAR and the user to communicate through Twitter direct messages. This also allows the user to send commands to TWAR through direct messages. </li></ul><ul><li>Once you follow TWAR, TWAR will follow you back automatically. </li></ul><ul><li>You start a TWAR by sending a Direct Message to TWAR with the TWAR Command (ex twar@scottmunc). </li></ul><ul><li>So if I’m @ev and I send a direct message to TWAR saying TWAR@scottmunc, then TWAR sends out 2 direct messages. One to @scottmunc saying “@ev has declared TWAR on you! Click here to join the battle! <link to scottmunc and ev battle for Scott>” </li></ul><ul><li>The second direct message is sent back to @ev saying, “You have declared TWAR on @scottmunc, click here to join the battle! <link to scottmunc and ev battle for Ev> </li></ul><ul><li>So now only the two players will see the link as it’s a direct message. Both players must click on the link for the battle to take place. If one of the players is not Following TWAR then only one direct message will be sent to the originator of the battle saying “@scottmunc is not following TWAR, you can’t challenge people who don’t follow TWAR” </li></ul><ul><li>Once you click the TWAR Battlefield link, you are taken to the Battlefield and wait for the other player to join. While waiting for the other player the battle box should say “Waiting on other Twarrior……..” and the other player’s info will be blank. </li></ul><ul><li>Once the other player joins, the battle starts with a noise effect maybe, like a “ding”. Once they join in all their info will fill in and their profile picture will appear in the picture box. Then the battle will begin and the dead birds will start appearing in the battle box. </li></ul>
  • 4. The Battle <ul><li>Once both players have joined, the battle takes place. The Battlefield page shows both of the players’ User Picture and their army components (change example to say Regular Army, Cavalry, Mercenaries). </li></ul><ul><li>There is also a Twitter Bird dressed in Armor representing each player, one in the left corner(originator) and one in the right corner (receiver) </li></ul><ul><li>The left corner Twitter Bird is Blue and the right corner Twitter Bird is Red. </li></ul><ul><li>The Battlefield box on the bottom half of the page starts to fill in with little dead birds (small Twitter bird with ‘X’ for eyes). The Blue birds represent dead Challenger troops, the Red birds represent dead Receiver troops. </li></ul><ul><li>Once the box is filled in completely the battle is over and the TWAR winner is declared. </li></ul><ul><li>NOTE: The box doesn’t actually represent the number of deaths and exact amount of troops each player has….because some players will have 250,000 troops and some will only have 100. Its more just a fun way to show the battle and show who is winning/losing. So you know when you are winning when you see more of the opponents colored dead birds popping up in the box. </li></ul>
  • 6. TWAR pages <ul><li>TWAR has 6 pages needed. </li></ul><ul><li>The HOME page is the TWARRIOR Rankings listing all the people who have played TWAR in order of their score. You can also search by specific user or location to find a user’s score or filter the Twarrior list by location (Twarriors displayed according to highest score in that location). </li></ul><ul><li>The Battlefield is where the battle takes place. </li></ul><ul><li>The After Battlefield page shows the results and give options: (Declare another TWAR / See Twarrior Rankings (change to TWAR HOME) / Get TWAR Credits!) </li></ul><ul><li>Buying Credits page. Credits allow users to purchase mercenaries to add to their army or intel reports. The amount of credits they purchase are stored in the Twarrior database. They will purchase using Google checkout. The numbers are off on the example, we should give people 100 mercenaries per 1 credit. </li></ul><ul><li>Info page displaying Creator’s twitter account links (Concept by Scott McIntosh, Development by Greg Lavalle, Design by Stephen John through 99Designs.com). </li></ul><ul><li>The instructions page will lay-out all the instructions and commands. The commands will also reside on the Twitter TWAR page for easy reference. </li></ul>
  • 13. Programming Rules <ul><li>Some people may click off while waiting so this will terminate the TWAR. Then when the receiver joins, he’ll see the following message inside the Battle Box: “@originator could not wait and has left the battlefield…challenge someone else to TWAR!” - where TWAR is a link back to the TWAR Twitter page. </li></ul><ul><li>The Twitter COMMANDS are listed on the TWAR Twitter page for easy reference. </li></ul><ul><li>When a user declares a TWAR on someone, they are both stored in the TWAR database by Twitter name. Once this happens the user then appears in the Twarrior Ranking List. When a user buys credits, their amount of credits are stored with their information in the database and change accordingly after a purchase (intel or mercenaries) . Also stored in the database will be the users points which will increase if they win a battle. </li></ul><ul><li>The amount of mercenaries a user has is also stored in the database and change after each battle (For a loss: 25% are killed, 25% go to the opponents army, and 50% live to fight another day with current user) (For a win: You get 25% of the opponents Mercenaries if he/she has any). Mercenary # should be added to the battle page ex. </li></ul><ul><li>The Twarrior Ranking list should be actual links back to those people’s Twitter accounts to help keep TWAR viral (people want more followers so they want to be at the top of the list where people will click their name and get taken to their account). This will further cause people to purchase mercenaries to get to the top of the rankings list. </li></ul><ul><li>The TWAR algorithm should let people with more fighters win most of the time – but not all the time. If the users are close in their amount of warriors (ex. I have 250,000 warriors and you have 255,000 warriors, we are pretty close. Or I have 250 warriors and you have 245 we are pretty close) the battle can go either way. The first example has 5,000 more warriors but in terms of the total amount of fighters that is a relative small number difference. In some instances, people with less warriors can win if they are close in total numbers like the two examples. Let the computer decide randomly when users are close in amount of troops so maybe random picks when users have no more or less than XX% of each other’s troops. </li></ul>
  • 14. TWAR Commands <ul><li>The TWAR instructions for users are written on the TWAR Twitter page in the background. Basically saying: </li></ul><ul><li>To declare TWAR on someone, both Twarriors must be following TWAR. </li></ul><ul><li>You never have to log-in to TWAR or give TWAR your password! You can use the direct message system in Twitter and the TWAR Commands. </li></ul>
  • 15. TWAR Commands <ul><li>The following commands are listed on the TWAR Twitter background. </li></ul><ul><li>To issue an action in TWAR, send the following direct messages to TWAR through Twitter: </li></ul><ul><li>“ TWAR@username” = declare TWAR on that user. </li></ul><ul><li>“ CREDIT” = Show your current credit amount (You have XXX credits left <‘get more credits’ link>) </li></ul><ul><li>“ INTEL” = Show your current troop levels (Regular Army XXX, Cavalry XXX, Mercenaries XXX, credits left XXX <‘get more credits’ link>) </li></ul><ul><li>“ INTEL@username” = costs you 10 credits, shows intel report on that username (Here is your intel report for “username” Regular Army XXX, Reserves XXX, Cavalry XXX, Mercenaries XXX, Chance of winning XX %) </li></ul><ul><li>“ MERCENARIES100” = costs you 1 credit and buys you 100 mercenaries, send’s confirmation direct message back to user saying (You’ve used 10 credits, 100 mercenaries have been added to your army!) or maybe (You don’t have enough credits for that many, <‘get more credits’ link>) </li></ul>
