What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“9DKA is a game project started from March 2018 that planned to provide various martial-art contents including our current game mode, the battle royal mode, and our project will be based on a martial-art concept, online gameplay, and PVP content.

After the off-line Alpha test from October 2018 in Korea, we’ve managed bugfix and extra development work to compensate the balance part. Now, we’re trying to build a community that can bind developer and player to provide the best fun to people before the official launch.

We strongly believe that Early Access is the best environment for forming the aforementioned community and expect to communicate with users around the world through the process of Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“9DKA will take 6 to 8 months to be officially launched on Steam. By that time, it will contain at least more than two different game mode and massive updates based on feedbacks from the community.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We anticipate that the version at the time of official launch date will be much different than the version of Early Access in all areas.
The official version of game will contain various new items & Characters, global leaderboard, massive graphic resource updates and social features. We will also share our plans and thoughts regarding to this schedule on community to improve the game even further.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently there are:
- Martial-Art Battle Royal mode
- 50 players at each game play
- 30+ in-game items including weapon & etc
- over 15 landmarks & ruins in game map

We’ve developed 90% of our game version for early access and we’re going to fill the rest parts based on supporter’s feedback from the community.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, 9DKA will offer reduced game prices to supporters who are recruited via Early Access, as well as limited edition characters and rewards to supporters for their official launch version.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Developments through working with the user community are the ultimate goal of the Early Access phase, and 9DKA plans to communicate with each other on a variety of topics to provide a unique experience by the gameplay.


Based on supporter’s experience with 9DKA's underlying combat balance, we will listen to the feedback collected to ensure a stable and reasonable balance is provided within the game
In addition, through regular developer & user meetings held on the official discords channel, the overall balance including various topics will continue to be discussed.


After releasing the full description of the development schedule for Early Access and the details for each key agenda, we will gather your feedback to ensure that 9DKA is in the right direction. And I think you can see that in the future, the process of formal launch is based on your opinion.


In addition to feedback from your gaming experience, we will continue to address possible bugs through constant internal censorship. Of course, the role of the community in the process is very important, so we will collect feedback and process modifications as transparent as possible through the actual development process.”

[Update Schedule] 1st Early-Access update on July

Hello guys,



From this announcement, we’d like to share our first major update plan which will be applied in early July.

After few weeks from the Early-Access open, we’ve received various feedbacks (great thanks to all you guys, it really helped us to decide future dev plan!), and we will start to apply it including our original development plan from this first major update schedule.



You can check the details below and always welcome to hear feedback from you guys with any issue(support@joongwongames.com).




1. Summary

- The update will include localization issues, game area optimization, new weapon type, UI fixes, and bug fixes.


- Currently, we’ve received many requests about the localization for certain countries and we believe it is worth trying to let the player enjoy the game based on their language. It is hard to tell the exact date which can be applied, but we will try our best to apply on 1st or 2nd major update.


- One of the most received feedback is about the size of the current game area. 9DKA aims that the game goes fast enough to feel the intensity of the melee combat and maintain it until the game ends. Therefore, we’ve decided to make a big change in our current game map including the basic subject for the game.


- The rest of our plans for the 1st update can be found at the “Details” section.




2. Details

2.1 Localization
- Full-text translation including GUI(Russia will be our first option).
- We will add more localization update step by step in the future.
- We will try our best to apply it at 1st or 2nd update period.


2.2 New weapon type, “the Fist”
- “The Fist” is one of the manliest weapon types in Martial-Art history. This weapon type will have a great advantage on close melee combat including “Stun” and “Knockback” ability.

- During the Early-Access period, we’re going to update more weapon types and we believe at the end of the Early-Access, the game will provide plenty of choices to suit your appetite.


2.3 Changes on the current game map
- Like we’ve explained this issue at “Summary”, lots of players gave us the feedback that the size of the current game map decreases the intensity of the game.

- To solve this issue, we’re going the resize the current game map and apply one island as a total game area(from two islands with bridges) with 25 maximum players.

- From our latest alpha test with this change, we found out that the game goes with enough speed and much more intensity.

- The new map will have 4 ruins and 2 spawn locations of the Dragon’s Jade.
- Item spawn rate scaling will be also done before the update so the gameplay can go smoothly.

- If these changes look positive after the patch, we’re going to optimize the game area to finalize the issue.


2.4 UI Fixes
- From the patch, the player will be able to verify the attack ability and consumed elixirs on the inventory page(Tab).


2.5 Resource updates
- The footstep sound of every Character will be optimized.

- There were some people who told us that the sound resource is from “Minecraft” and to avoid the unnecessary argument, we will add the URL that proves it is a free-licensed sound resource which updated in 2005.

- We’re going to upgrade the quality of our sound resources step by step in the future update period.


2.6 Bug fixes
- There is a list of bug fix which will be updated on the actual patch note.

- One of the issues that are still on-going with development is a client crash(CTD) which happens randomly. We will post another announcement to discuss the process of bug fix before the update.





Thanks

About This Game


About This Game
Nine Dragons, selected by 7M global players has returned with a brand new type of gameplay and dynamic Martial-Art action.

From the Gado island, the mysterious place that has a rumor of nine dragon’s legacy, overcome the adversity which comes from deadly enemies and hopeless environment to prove yourself the worthy one to be a master of nine dragon’s world.


[Gado Island]
Gado island became a bloody battleground by 50 unknown mercenaries who try to obtain the nine dragon’s legacy because of the rumor that tells whoever obtains the legacy, will gain enough power to rule the nine dragon’s world.
As one of the mercenaries, without any allies, you must fight through the battleground to find “Dragon’s Jade” which is the key to enter the place that nine dragon’s legacy is hidden and reveal the ancient mystery.


[Prepare for the battle]
You will be dragged to the island with nothing to help you fight or survive and therefore, must search for supplies and farm yourself before you face another mercenary with nothing in your hand.
Even a single dumpling could cause a serious difference during the combat. To maintain survivability and chance to win the battle, we recommend checking every item that you find and make a way to use it in your own way. Like just said, every item has their own way to support your gameplay.
Sometimes, you will be able to find a hidden item from the unexpected place or a mysterious NPC and of course, it will be a game changer once you find it.
There are several weapon types and various socket items that you can insert to the weapon. Experience every weapon type you can find, build your own combat style and choose them strategically to cope with all the situations you may face during the gameplay.



[History will only remember the survivor]
Remember, it is not honor that keeps you alive on the battleground and wins the battle, and the only one who can discuss the honor is the one who survived from the battle.
Sometimes you'll learn to turn your back on your enemies and run away promising the next opportunity, and when the opportunity comes, you'll learn how to use all the things that are given for victory, even if it’s way far from the honor.

[The Dragon’s Jade]
There are nine ruins that use to be a clan house for each nine clans of this world in Gado island and three of those ruins have the dragon’s Jade which is the key to the chamber that nine dragon’s legacy is hidden.
The key will show the location of the chamber in your map by a mark, and once the key gets out from the ruins, it will show the chamber’s location to every people after a certain time after it.
Some of you will try to visit the ruins while some of you will search for the one who already has key. It’s obvious in this world when you kill someone, you take everything that they had.

[It is only the beginning]
Do not be disappointed when you hear someone already got the key and revealed the legend of nine dragon’s legacy. We’re going to provide another thrilling adventure to you in an early day.
