About Career Mode in WCC3

This new mode will allow gamers to make their players compete in matches and tournaments which will lead to the player being selected in local clubs or national teams depending upon their skill and performance.

This career mode is designed to be the most challenging game mode in World Cricket Championship 3 and has been one of the most sought after features by millions of mobile cricket fans.
Among many other features that promise to make career Mode one of the most challenging game modes to be added to WCC 3, some of the unique features include;
- New Controls– While bowling, users can take full control over the deliveries, with fine-tuned variations in pace, swing, spin and pitch spot. The game adds finesse with special deliveries such as googlies, reverse swing, leg and off cutters and so on. While batting, users can also control run, sprint and dive to the crease when needed. This control helps in balancing the power against shot accuracy. The users also get to choose when to drive, loft or defend. And finally, being in control of the active fielders, deciding the merit of stops, throws and catches. The users also manage their ultimate team and their team members’ stamina, recovery and focus, which all play a part in on-field performance. All these improve as they upgrade their players in various disciplines.
- Motions Captures– One of the features in mobile cricket that boosts the overall appeal of the game and makes it more realistic. For a quality 3D real-time motion in the game, the movements of a real-time actor or an athlete are captured, rather than animating each part of the 3D character by hand. This brings about a higher level of detail and nuance to the animation when a body is subjected to high momentum, force, and change in the center of gravity.
- Visuals (Cut-scenes)– This feature displays the gradual career progression of a player’s success and failures in his journey through the software of Cut –scenes.
- Choice –The freedom the game gives to each gamer to choose their players path towards a league player or an international player.
- Decision impact– A performance decision system that decides whether or not a player will become a Legend in the Leagues or Gods of the International Cup.
- Dynamic Difficulty– A rapid dynamic difficulty system giving a novice gamer and a professional gamer the befitting challenge according to the player’s skill and expertise
- The Perma Match Flow– Players face real-game pressure situations and prove their skills in every single match. This feature eliminates the option to replay a match and thus makes the competition very real. Just like in real life, every decision will have consequences and one missed shot will make or break the player’s journey.
