How to Play Thetan Arena
Thetan Arena is a very popular Blockchain Game. In this article, we will take you through its gameplay.
Thetan Arena is a very popular play-to-earn blockchain game that boasts more than 24M players since its launch. It became one of the top five most downloaded blockchain games of 2021. The gameplay combines the strategic aspects of Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas (MOBA) with different competitive elements. Players earn NFT and token rewards using their skills or through teamwork.
Thetan Arena is developed by a Vietnamese studio called Wolfrun Game. Founded in 2016, Wolfrun has a plethora of experience, particularly in online mobile PvP games. The studio has developed games like Tomcat in Space, Tank Raid and Heroes Strike. Heroes Strike has nearly 10M downloads and became the “Editor’s Choice” by the Google Play Store. Wolfrun found the opportunity of Blockchain and moved Heroes Strike to the blockchain. They renamed it Thetan Arena. This means that Thetan Arena already comes with a fully finished gameplay and a Web 2.0 revenue source.
In Sept 2021, Thetan Arena did a successful IDO in Polkastarter and Paid Network. It raised $200,000. The community considered them to be one of the most advanced blockchain games. It immediately gained huge popularity and did an All-Time High of 264x. By Dec 2022, Thetan Arena broke multiple records in Blockchain Gaming. The game reached 3M players across all platforms, with the number of daily active users reaching a peak of 2M. The game received a rating of 4.7/5 in Google Play from more than 80,000 players across 4 countries.
Thetan Arena is building on the success of its launch with steadfast development, strong sustained marketing, periodic product updates and event launches, etc.
- By December 2021, the Thetan Arena Treasury had $80,650,011. This came in the form of $THG Tokens, from Legendary Box early sale, Marketplace $THG Revenue, Ecosystem Fees, and Staking Issuance. This assured the users of the long-term stability of the project.
- Thetan Arena continued to strengthen its economy. It focussed on the long-term sustainability of the project. It introduced the $THC Burn program (details about Tokenomics in the next section). $THC is the in-game token. Players were able to convert $THC to $THG at very attractive rates. The team bought back a certain amount of $THC and burned them.
- The project launched the Hero Rental program. Owners of Heros can now rent Hero NFTs and make a profit.
- Recently, Thetan Area has created a Grant Pool of $500,000 in $THG to increase the partner Guild’s focus on enriching the Thetan community
The Guild Partner program has gained good traction. Popular guilds like AAG, PathDAO, and Polkastarter are a part of this program. With such growth the Thetan Arena team expanded. It now has 80 full-time and 20 part-time employees.
Thetan Arena has a 2 token economy, Thetan Gem (THG) and Thetan Coin (THC).
- $THG has a total supply of $420M. It is a free-to-earn token. Users can get it by staking Thetan Heroes, participating in challenges, accruing game time, participating in governance, etc. Players can use $THG to participate in governance, trade in the marketplace, evolve heroes, etc.
- Players can earn $THC by playing the game. Players receive $THC by participating in battles, quests, and ranking rewards. $THC is used to purchase the Thetan Box, which contains Thetan Heroes.
So, what is so special about Thetan Arena? Thetan Arena has a very mature Gameplay. Let’s check it out.
Go to the Thetan Arena Website.

Go to the marketplace to get your Gift Box. Connect your wallet. You should be in the Binance Smart Chain. Note that this wallet will be permanently connected to your Thetan Arena Account. In case you are a new user, use ‘Create New Game Account’.
In the ThetanBox tab, you will find an option to receive your Welcome Box for Free. You will need this to start your gameplay. You will receive a gift in the form of Hero, Cosmetic or gTHC. Also, note that you can claim the box only once.
Find the claimed gift in your inventory. You can unlock this after 24 hours from the time of claim. You will now need to install and log into the game.

Claim your 3 random Heroes.
I received an Assassin, Marksman, and Tank. These are the 3 types of Heroes of Thetan Arena, developed based on their signature skills and statistics.
Let’s look into what these heroes can do:
Assassin: Assassins are the primary fighters who directly engage in the fight and kill the enemy and then retreat quickly. They however have low health.
- Health Point: Low
- Attack Damage: High
- Speed: High
Marksman: Marksman has the maximum damage power during the fight.
- Health Point: Normal
- Attack Damage: High
- Speed: Normal
Tank: Tank Heroes are on the front during a battle. They face the enemies and prevent their teammates from receiving damage.
- Health Point: High
- Attack Damage: Normal
- Speed: Slow
You will get Heroes of different rarities by purchasing a Thetan Box from the marketplace. You need to choose your Heroes very carefully to increase the win rate in Thetan Arena.
Your in-game dashboard will look like the one below.
You can click on your Hero to select the type of Hero you want to send to the battle.
Let’s go with Attack. We will use the Assassain, Raidon. See the “Non-Premium” Tag, this means that you will not get premium rewards with these Heros and you will need to level up.
Check the status and Fury of the Hero. This will be important, as you will need to equip the Hero with skills that compensate for its weakness. You will also see an option to upgrade with PowerPoints. Go back to your Dashboard Home and you might just get some PowerPoint for free.
Click on shop
Claim 10 Power Points. The PowerPoints reset every 11 hours. With 270 Power Points, you can purchase a Powerpoint Box that has the below probability of Item Drop Rate:
- Emotes — 29%
- Skin — 12%
- Hero — 6%
- Avatar — 25%
- Frame 28%
However, it is to be noted that all Heroes acquired from the in-game shop are untradeable, as these are not directly connected to Web 3. So even though these in-game heroes are cheap, you will not get the desired profits.
In case you want to get a better Hero, we would recommend you purchase it from the Marketplace.
Go to the Marketplace. Ensure that you are in the ThetanBoxes Tab. (This is also where we got the gift box, which will also open up in a day)
Let’s say, we want to purchase a Legendary Hero. We will click on the Legendary Box. The Legendary box has a 100% chance of receiving a legendary hero, however with varying chances of different skin rarity. The skin rarity is also necessary for improved performances in the battles.
Select the quantity you want to purchase and check the price. At this point, it costs me 483 $THG ($47)
Before purchasing this, let’s go to the secondary marketplace and see what is available. Click on the ‘Buy’ tab. We will filter by Legendary Hero and Mythical Skin
Note: Every Hero will have a limited number of gTHC battles (the remaining number of battles to earn gTHC rewards). The lesser it is the better.
We sort by cheapest price per remaining gTHC battle.
The Hero costs $75 with 66 battles (out of 1041) already consumed. At this point, you need to decide on whether to buy a box and take a risk on skin or buy a Thetan Box directly from secondary.
Coming back to the gameplay, we have selected an Assassin. Let’s equip him with some skills. Click on Tap to change, add or remove skills.
We will equip the Assassin with Healing Turret to compensate for his poor health
Now, it’s time to battle. Click on Find Match.
The goal is to be the last survivor. Smash supply boxes to get power-ups.
You are inside an arena, you have to play with strategy. A very good strategy is to hide for a time being till the other players kill each other and you are left with only a few enemies to fight with. Of course, the difficulty will vary. Also, locate the positions of health and power-ups.
I was placed #12 on my first try. Not bad!
Along with the single-player, you can also play Battle Royale, a multiplayer gameplay option inside Thetan Arena.
The Thetan Arena Gameplay is simple, smooth, and strategy based. It is thrilling, intuitive, and engrossing. However, if you want to earn a substantial amount of money, you will have to give the game lots of time. This game is best suited for dedicated gamers. Casual gamers can use the Hero Rent function to make some profits.
