The Honor System for Spider Tanks was introduced in December 2022. It was developed on the ideas that players should “prioritize fun over Rewards,” and that it “should be hard to earn but easy to lose.”1 Each user had an Honor Score that was affected by their actions in the ecosystem, in turn affecting the rewards they could receive.
The Honor System was announced for removal on January 20, 2024.2 Its complete removal occurred in the following days on January 26. The Gala Games website interface no longer has any reference to the Honor System, but Honor is still visible in Spider Tanks in-game (shown static at maximum Honor of 1200).3
Honor Score #
The Honor Score is a number between 0 and 1200, and represents the potential rewards a user may receive from the conversion of their daily Victory Points. New users start at an Honor Score of 300.4
Rewards to a user are directly proportionate to their Honor Score, where 1200 would mean they receive 100% of their potential rewards from Victory Points (and 0 would mean they receive 0% of their potential rewards).
A user with a starting Honor Score of 300 would receive 25% (300/1200) of their potential rewards from the conversion of Victory Points.
The effect of certain actions on your Honor Score only apply at the end of the day.
Positive Actions #
This a list of actions that increase your Honor Score. The amount of honor gained typically appears as green text.
|Operating a Spider Tanks Planetary node
|Bridging SILK [ETH] to GYRI
per 100 SILK (max. 10,000 SILK daily)
|Winning a match daily with an NFT
daily (see below table, based on highest rarity used for the day)
Negative Actions #
This is a list of actions that decrease your Honor Score. Unlike positive actions, they are calculated as a proportion of the SILK used with the amount held originally. Negative honor changes typically appear as red text.
|Bridging SILK [GYRI] to ETH
|Proportionate of SILK bridged to ETH with SILK held originally.
(e.g., 100 SILK bridged from originally held amount of 200 SILK held results in 50% Honor loss)
|Sending SILK to another GYRI wallet
|Proportionate of SILK sent with SILK held originally.
(e.g., 50 SILK sent from originally held amount of 250 SILK held results in 20% Honor loss)
Redeeming Actions #
This is a list of actions that mitigate any potential loss to Honor Score. These can be done before or after negative actions, but must be on the same day. The amount of honor redeemed typically appears in white text.
|Using SILK [ETH] in the Gala store
(does not apply to SILK [GYRI])
|Proportionate to SILK used in the Gala store and the SILK used from negative actions
(e.g., 30 SILK [ETH] spent in the Gala store after 100 SILK [GYRI] bridged out results in only 70 SILK used to bridge out causing Honor loss)
Checking Your Honor Score #
You can check your Honor Score through the Gala Games website. It is located in the ‘Honor’ section of the account settings. By default, the ‘Honor’ section is the first thing shown.
You can also check your Honor Score in-game through Spider Tanks. The Play-to-Earn section at the top of the main menu shows your Honor Score.
