Every bear in the game belongs to one of 5 affinities:
Particular matches in the game might favor a particular affinity. For example a particular match might double the Score Bonus of any Cautious bears used in the match, while bears of other affinities would not get their Score Bonuses doubled.
- At the time I write this statement, the increase is 2.5x, not just 2x. But the idea is the same--bears will be more beneficial than usual if used in a match where their affinity is favored.
School will service only one affinity on a particular day. E.g., today may be a day when Merry bears can attend school and bears of other affinities cannot. Check the School Schedule to learn when a particular affinity gets to attend school.
