Good News everyone, we are just finishing up some QA and soon you'll be able to venture forth into the frontier.

 

Today I'd like to explain what you'll be experiencing when you participate in this game, and explain how panning works.

 

When you enter into the mining scene you'll be conscripted to either the Riverbed Snappers (Red) or the Cave Dwellers (Blue.) Your goal is to collect more gold than the other team. Don't worry, the gold that you collect goes to you AND it adds to the teams total, and you'll see the little mine cart at the top of your screen move closer to your teams end (you will also see a real life mine cart move as well) Whichever team gets the cart all of the way to their side, or has collected more gold at the end of the time limit, will win and be rewarded with a bunch of bonus gold.

Bro, do you even sift?

 

Now let me explain how panning is controlled. There are 4 gestures that you must perform in time. You are either sliding the contoller left and right or up and down, or tilting the controller left and right or up and down. Doing these actions at the correct time will improve your gold collection. You will be shown your total of gold after you've completed enough actions. You must clear the spot of gold to be given your gold.

 

As usual, I'll try to answer any questions you have the best that I can. Smiley Happy

So once you're on a team, you can't switch?

There will be auto balancing if too many people from one team leave, but you cannot choose your team.

Sixaxis only controls?  What about people who don't have/use a controller with Sixaxis functionality?  I remember seeing a bit of complaints when E3 was around because one of the tasks required Sixaxis and people couldn't complete it.

Yes, for panning it is SIXAXIS only. You can still participate by mining which does not use SIXAXIS controls. There are still ways to get gold from 100 free gold weekly or just straight up purchasing gold.

Meh...seems like each update keeps making me less and less interested. Mining in a 12 hour window, panning for gold is sixaxis only, and rewards have to be gifted after winning trade tokens...

At this point the only way I'm going to be interested in this again is if there's some new, more direct ways to getting the rewards implemented...in which case they aren't really rewards...might as well just make re-skinned mall versions of the rewards for people like me who don't feel like going through all this trouble Smiley Tongue

Some of the rewards are available in different colours in the General Store.
