How to use the Waifu TCG of NepNepBot
Welcome to this Guide, my Name is Marenthyu. Since you are here, i suppose you have heard of the Waifu TCG in our Bot and want to use it properly.
Community Member xorhash has put in a lot of effort to combine a lot of information about the Bot in the NepDoc - it's a lot more in depth and in my (Marenthyu) opinion a lot more high quality than this Help Gist. It is now maintained by the Waifu TCG Team. If you are left wondering about something or are simply curious, do check it out here. It'll most likely be able to answer almost all questions, but may require multiple reads as it is really in-depth.
Thanks again for originally making it, xorhash!
In our Waifu TCG, you collect cards of Waifus and are able to trade them with others, imagine it like the Pokémon or Yu-Gi-Oh Cards, just with pretty Waifus.
Every Waifu comes with a set of information:
- Their Name
- The Series they are from
- A Link to an Image showing her
- A "Rarity" or "Tier"
- A unique ID from our database
Whenever you see a Waifu, it will either be listed with all of the above information or just their ID.
Aside from the Waifus themselves, you also have some Points, which you atuomatically get by being in one of the chats the TCG is active in. Just be there, you will get a few Points just by being active in chat! Other than that, you can get points by "disenchanting" your Waifus. This especially comes in handy when you reach your limit, of initially 7 Waifus you can have "on your Hand" at any given time - though this number may be increased with hand upgrades you (mainly) receive by buying packs!
That is the basic gist, but to use it, you will have to interact with the Bot using commands. Here's the list of all of the commands available, with some examples for complex commands a little further down.
|!checkhand||[verbose]||Shows you all of your currently owned waifus with all of their information, posts a link to view in chat unless you provide "verbose" which will whisper a full list to you directly.|
|!points||Shows you your current points and pudding|

|!buy||<rarity>||Buys a random waifu from the given rarity by spending 5x its disenchant value|
|!booster buy||<standard/jumbo/super/premium/ultimate>||Buys a Booster Pack of the type you pick. In general, the more expensive the pack, the better the odds are of good cards. However, Jumbo packs are just Standard packs with more cards at once.|

Every Waifu has a disenchant value in points, which you get when you disenchant it. Any waifu can exist at its base rarity or above an unlimited amount of times, unless it is promo or special rarity. Waifu rarities are subject to change at any time, but if the base rarity of a waifu in your hand decreases, your copy will remain unaffected.
|special||0 (only obtainable through vouchers)|
|promo||0 (like special, but not unique to one person)|
Note: Very few waifus have God as their base rarity. Those that do are only variants of other waifus with a non-God version.
Buying Booster Packs
To get more Waifus quickly, you can buy Booster Packs. There are several kinds of booster packs - the current ones are called Standard, Jumbo, Super, Premium and Ultimate. While all Waifus can drop from even a standard pack, more expensive Boosters have highly increased drop chances and guarantee that you get better cards in certain cases.
To open a booster, you need to first buy it. You do so by typing something along the lines of
!booster buy standard or
!booster buy super, depending on which one you want. Once bought, you will see which waifus you dropped from it and can then select which you want to keep and which to immediately disenchant. Remember, you can only have a certain number of Waifus at any given time, so choose wisely!
After buying a Booster Pack, the Bot will give you a link so you can check out the Waifus you dropped. There, you'll be able to tick those you want to keep, which will generate the command you can then use to keep the waifus you selected and disenchant the rest. Easy, isn't it?
The current recommended pack to get each rarity most cost-effectively is as follows:
|super||super (standard/jumbo/premium are okay)|
|ultra||premium (super/ultimate are okay)|
|god||any (good luck)|
If you think your waifu is worth more than her base rarity, why not promote her? Promotion follows a simple formula where gathering 2 cards at a particular rarity will replace them with a single copy of the same card but at the next rarity up. This can be stacked until you hit the highest rarity, so gathering 4 total will get a copy two rarities up from base and so on. The only exception is that to promote from mythical to god rarity you need three instead of two, since God is the final and most exclusive rarity.
What would a TCG be without trading? (well, Hearthstone. But let's ignore that.) So, of course, you can trade your Waifus with other viewers! Just simply type
!trade <player> <yourwaifu> <theirwaifu> where is the ID of the Waifu you want to give the other viewer and the id of the Waifu you want from the other viewer. After that, the other player can use
!trade accept <yourname>. If you want to trade waifus of different rarities, the user with the lower rarity card will have to pay the other user the disenchant value difference between the cards to accept the trade. This is done to keep our economy Fair.
Bets are a game run by channel owners who have NepNepBot. They open bets for a certain speedrun category, viewers predict what time they will get, and then the streamer actually does the run. Participants in the bet will be rewarded with free booster pack redeems based on how well they guess the streamer's time if/when the bet is "paid out" by a member of staff. The streamer themselves will also receive some bonus points for the time they put in.
Streamers can use
!bet open to open a new bet for people to enter times,
!bet start when they start the run and
!bet end when they reach the endgoal.
Viewers can use
!bet HH:MM:SS.MS to enter a bet when bets are open in a particular channel. The hours, minutes and seconds are required, but milliseconds are optional. Bets pay out in pudding, a secondary currency. You can use the
!pudding command to show your pudding and buy boosters with pudding.
Badges are the new hawt thing in town - they spice up your profile and show your dedication to the TCG. They are rarely handed out for special occurences and whenever you complete a set. It currently is a manual process, but we might automate it in the future. Until then, hold your eyes open to collect them! (Maybe It's a secret to everybody how to get a few)
If you are using Streamlabs alerts and want to have ultra and above card drops be announced with an on-screen alert, you can configure the bot to do so!
First, make sure you are following the Bot, then type
!alerts setup and the Bot will whisper you a link to authorize the Waifu TCG with Streamlabs. This will add a token to our Database, signalling you want to receive alerts. There is currently no way to reset this token, so if you deauthorize the Application on Streamlabs, but later decide you want it again, you will have to contact an admin to manually reset your token!
Upon successful authorization, an alert will be sent through Streamlabs' Donation alerts. Afterwards, you are free to configure a different 'channel' for the alerts, as well as customize the Sound that gets played as well as the length of the alert being displayed. to do so, use the
!alerts config <name> <value> command. The following config options may be set with this command:
|Config Name||Example Value||Explanation|
|alertChannel||donation, host, subscription, follow||Sets the Streamlabs "channel" through which the alert is being sent. This means the alert will not be displayed, if you do not have an alert set up for the corresponding category.|
|defaultSound||http://uploads.twitchalerts.com/000/048/712/659/MMMYeaNoireShort.ogg||Link to a music file which gets played by the streamlabs alert by default. Preferably .ogg, though any file formats Streamlabs supports may be used.|
|defaultLength||14000||The default length in Milliseconds, describing the length the alert will be visible|
|rarity<num>Sound||see above||The Link to a music file, as above, which gets Played when a specific rarity card drops. Valid nums: 4, 5, 6, 7 (for ultra through god respectively)|
|rarity<num>Length||see above||The length in Milliseconds for secific rarity Drops. See above.|
|color||rarity||Sets the color of the special words in the alert to be the rarity's representative color instead of the one configured on your streamlabs dashboard|
To test your configs or alerts in general, you can type
!alerts test [rarity] to send a test alert with all your config values applied. Rarity should be a whole, positive number.
