Kung Fu Master
is an online multiplayer sparring game where players compete for top rank in a global tournament. You have the opportunity to customize your character thousands of different waysabilities, techniques, and even character designtesting various sparring regiments to find out how to become the top-ranked fighter in the world. However, your title is not permanent... thousands of players will be constantly challenging you to be the best.
= "challenge" to an actual sparring match
= "practice" that does not count toward your sparring record
Your LEVEL and your BELT are not the same. In the beginning levels (up through level 8), you will advance in both equally; however, once your character is more experienced, more is expected of you, so your sparring record will determine your belt.
Your various characters will be available to switch between on the home page, showing your current character's "Updates" about matches, levels, etc. that happen while you are away. Watch for specials on Refreshments here.
Your character attributes offer you the opportunity to specialize in various types of techniques, such as blocks, punches, kicks, and counter moves. Your knowledge of the various attributes affects both the points you score from a given technique as well as reduces the points your opponent can score from such a technique against you. Your endurance attribute affects all aspects of sparring, but to a lesser degree than specializing in various techniques.
Attributes can be adjusted as often as you like, so be sure to test different configurations, along with different sparring moves on the Techniques page, to determine what sparring style is best for you. Additionally, you earn one attribute point every time you gain a level, up to a total of 500 combined attribute points.
This page shows you techniques available to you at your current belt and at the next belt rank, as well as offers the configuration tab for setting your character's sparring style. There are also tips for setting sparring configurations and explanations of various techniques.
Your Facebook friends (Facebook users only) or people you recruit to Kung Fu Master (for non-Facebook users) are all listed in your dojo. Each person you recruit to Kung Fu Master earns you one Refreshment Point. Additionally, the more members in your dojo, the less time you have to wait between matches. You can have a maximum of 500 dojo members (including actual friends and purchased dojo members).
You can practice sparring dojo members even when your rest timer is counting down, though you can only practice against each dojo member once before you have to spar a real opponent. Once you challenge someone to an actual sparring match, you may practice against each of your dojo members again.
Practicing can help you perfect your attribute configuration and sparring style. However, the results of practice matches are not counted toward your character's statistics, matches, rank, level, or belt. But this is a good way to test new techniques and sparring configurations without risk of losing a match.
Each sparring match you are inwhether you initiate the match or another player challenges youcounts toward your progress in level. Be sure to practice sparring dojo members to keep your win percentage up and improve your overall ranking. You may only spar any given opponent once per day.
Standings for overall leaders, as well as leaders within your belt, are available on this page. Rankings are based on a combination of sparring record, level, and beltso being the highest belt or highest level does not necessarily guarantee you first place.
In addition to your rank among the best fighters, you have the opportunity to accomplish various Achievements showing outstanding sparring skill. Your Character page will display your own personal Achievements, and the Leaders page will rank the top Achievements for players close to your belt.
Sparring is rigorous work! Each match requires that you rest for five minutes afterward; however, Refreshments can rejuvenate you and eliminate the required rest (each character you create begins the game with five of each type). Refreshments, as well as other character enhancements, are available for purchase with Refreshment Points. (You can accumulate up to 500 of each Refreshment.) Additionally, you receive one random refreshment each day you log into the game.
Why can't I raise one of my Attributes?
Remember, no one Attribute can be more than 50% of your total available Attribute points. Additionally, before you can increase one Attribute, you need to reduce points in another so you have points available to spend.
Why does the "Configure Sparring Style" page keep resetting my sparring configuration?
Should you happen to drop in rank and belt due to an unfortunate string of sparring losses, you may have techniques saved that end up being higher belt than you, and the game will automatically reset those techniques. For example, if you are Red Belt
and have a Knifehand Strike saved in your list, then you lose a few matches and get demoted to Purple Belt
, you are no longer eligible to use Knifehand Strikes, so the game will automatically remove that technique from your list. You can select a new technique in its place on the Techniques page.
Also, be sure to click the "Set My Sparring Techniques" button when you have finished configuring your sparring sequence.
Why can't I invite any more Dojo Members?
You can always invite more dojo members - as many as you like. However, you will only receive a sparring-timer reduction for the first 500 dojo members you have. Of course, if you happen to go over the 500 limit, actual friends will take precedence over purchased dojo members so you have more members you can practice spar.
I can't spar anymore today - I've either already sparred everyone I'm eligible to spar, or everyone else is too low belt. What do I do now?
Such is the price of your great power. And as they say, "With great power, comes great..." well, solitude, in your case. But you have options!
- Create another character to begin anew and have plenty of lower belts to spar.
- Check out the Leaders page and challenge some of the top contenders.
- Invite more friends and get them leveled up so you can spar with them.
Why did all of my Achievements scores disappear?
Remember that, aside from Longest Streak, Achievements reset themselves when you change belts; "changing belts" includes both belt advandment and belt demotion. So if you have dropped in the overall rankings, your Achievements will reset. Be sure to keep your win record up by sparring regularly to protect those Achievments!
