~Sorry this post was later than usual, school has started for me and it’s currently my priority, as it’s a very stressful year for me. Thanks for your patience!~
This new feature seems to be an extension of the classic Fashion Show at Top Models. It’s faster, more convenient, and has more one-on-one interaction, which is awesome!
Even better, you can play the Fashion Battle anywhere on Fantage, you just have to click this button to start!
How to Play – Basics
First, you need Fashion Battle tokens. Luckily, all of us get 3 free tokens every day, just by clicking on the button above.
You can also buy extra token packs with gold. They’re actually not outrageously expensive, 10 tokens for 200 gold.
Like I mentioned earlier, you can be anywhere on Fantage to play this, you do not need to be inside Top Models or at Downtown.
Now, you have two choices. You can either challenge someone who has already started a battle, or you can start one yourself and wait for other people to challenge you.
How to Challenge a User
Click on one of the people in the Battles tab. You can battle anyone in the server, not just your friends or the people standing near you!
The colored level bars on the right indicate how well that person did. If you want to win you should choose someone with a blue, low level bar. BUT, I’ve noticed that if you challenge someone with a higher level bar, you get more stars and you gain levels faster.
The bars indicate how many items the person has in their inventory. So, it’s likely that the more bars, the more difficult the opponent will be. Thanks, person in the comments!
After you’ve chosen your opponent, you will be given a theme (it’s always a color) and you will be given the choice to buy the theme’s special hair. These items give you bonus points but cost a LOT: 10,000 gold.
Then, just dress up to match the theme! Close your inventory once you’re done, and you will get your results!
How to Start Your Own battle
Click the Battle button.
Your opponent is unknown for now, they have to click on your username and challenge you after you’ve dressed up.
Again, you will be given a theme and a chance to buy the special hair.
Once you’re done dressing, this notification will pop up. Close it by clicking on it.
Keep on checking the Results tab. If you see a username there, that means someone has challenged you, and the results are ready! Click on it.
Again, the winner will be given stars and points for their medal.
1. As far as I know, there is no time limit for dressing up, unlike the Fashion Show. Take as long as you need.
2. Like the fashion show, rares (items from Orion) give you HUGE boost. Even if it’s the nonmember rares, it still gives you more points than non-rare items.
3. Personally, I prefer challenging people on the Battles page than starting a battle myself. You don’t have to wait as long, and you know exactly who you’re playing against.
4. If your medal isn’t leveling up even after winning a bunch of games, just refresh, same thing happened to me.
Play games and get points to fill up the XP bar at the bottom. Once it’s full, you can win stars, eCoins, or Tokens. I haven’t gotten there yet, but if I do, I’ll let you know what I got!
I just got the Mystery Box, finally. Once your bar is filled, you have to click on the pink box yourself to redeem it. Then, you get to choose 1 box out of three randomly. I got 286 stars, which is around the ballpark of what I’ve been hearing in the comments.
I absolutely LOVE this. I think the Fashion Show is one of the best games on Fantage, and I’m so happy that they’re expanding it.
I’m especially happy that they finally stopped making updates/events that requires gold to have fun. It was super awesome of Fantage to give everyone 3 free tokens, even nonmembers. This is how things should always be.
And honestly, I’m not very bothered by how expensive the special theme hairs are. For one, nobody is forcing you to buy it. Two, Fantage needs to make a profit from this. And three, wow they actually look pretty good, I’m sure you FMV and editing people would find good uses for it.
As for suggestions, this is really small, but I hope they will add the “Points until next level” thing when you hover your mouse over the medal. It’s nice knowing.
And also, it would be cool if they added the special theme hairs to the Mystery Box as a prize!
