How does Katana Work?

Free application

You can view and playback Strategies for free in the Viewer.

TIMELINE

Review strategies and set your desired playback speed. See the position and actions of all the players at any given moment.

PLAYER ROLES

Player roles are displayed as small icons vertically arranged on the left side panel of the screen. Beside each icon, the players‘ name, current balance and equipment are shown.

NOTES & LINKS

Purple notepad icons can be positioned anywhere on the maps, which include player instructions, useful hints or additional info related to the actual gameplay. Only the creator of the strategy can place notes on the map.

My strategies & Playbooks

Our cloud-based service securely stores all your created and subscribed strategies enabling you to access them at any time on any of your compatible devices.


MY STRATEGIES

Easy search helps you get real-time search results, while typing a desired strategy’s name.
You can also use filters within your search for strategies, like:
Economy, Mode, Side, Maps, Rating, Complexity


PLAYBOOKS

Let‘s you organize strategies based on your individual taste or battle logic by creating a playlist. Just like with music tracks. You can prepare and practice multiple strategies to battle against any opponent.

Lobby & Live Share

Lobby lets you invite teammates, choose any map and launch your own or a subscribed strategy to practice together as a team.


LOBBY

1. After creating a Lobby, a link appears beneath your name.
2. Copy & paste this link to any of your social channels.
3. By clicking on it, your friends and followers can join your Lobby after signing up to Katana.



LIVE SYNC

As host of the Lobby, you can choose which strategy to share, and view it in real time with your friends. Only one strategy can be replayed at a time, however, if you create a Playbook, several strats can be practiced sequentially to take your gameplay to the next level.
