Being a member of a Triad has many benefits; one of them is always knowing the right guy who can help you out. You can find all sorts of people in the seedy underbelly of Triad Wars to give you a hand. Sometimes a friend will loan you a car, while another might give you access to some special weapons needed for a tough Raid.
In Triad Wars we call these actions ‘FAVORS’. These come in all different shapes and sizes, but pretty much anything in the game can be given to you as a FAVOR. Just to name a few, here are some examples of things you can gain through FAVORS in Triad Wars:
There are many ways to earn Favors. If you’ve played the Closed Beta, you will remember when Uncle David sent a couple of friends to give you a pretty sweet ride and a very handy gun… these are FAVORS.
Each time you open a Racket, you will get a Racket Boss – these guys know EVERYONE and they always have a FAVOR ready for you. You can visit each Racket Boss daily to collect the latest FAVOR from them.
Another way to earn FAVORS, is by participating in Raids and taking out the opponent’s staff. Sometimes during a Raid, you will notice one guy fleeing the scene as quick as he can… this is your opponent’s staff. If you see him, you will have to decide whether to chase him down then take the FAVOR off him, or let him go and continue with the Raid. It is definitely a strategic choice.
If you like exploring the streets of Hong Kong, keep an eye on the mini-map for a red dot. When you see the dot, it means you are really close to a rival contact member. Once you have taken him out, check his body as there will always be a FAVOR on it waiting to be plundered.
We’ll be showing off the FAVORS in our next Twitch stream which will be on February 12th at 11am PST. Put it into your calendars now!
