DeltaAMA Series AMA ID 023-Transcript of AMA with MetaFighter

omg-DHC CM: Hi everyone thank you for joining this fun AMA session with Serkan the CEO of MetaFighter. Hello welcome to our server Serkan its a pleasure to have you with us.

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: Hey everyone. Pleasure to be here and thanks for the opportunity.

omg-DHC CM: The pleasure is ours.
Let’s start the AMA.

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: Let´s go.

omg-DHC CM: Can you tell us a little bit about your professional and crypto background?

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: Of course let me first introduce myself briefly…
I’ve been in crypto since 2014, and got into crypto properly in 2016, working as a developer for a host of products. I did plenty of consulting about ICOs too. Back then, there were a lot of ICO rating platforms, most of which were unfair and gave poor ratings.
So I decided to make my own ICO rating platform based on smart contracts to give potential investors a good readout. Then, as you know, the bear market came, and ICOs died out. So that was the end of that. In the meantime, I worked at a global bank as an advisor and a senior project lead.
So hope this gives some background of my person.

omg-DHC CM: Very nice, a true OG of the crypto space. You had your hands in all sorts of projects.

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: Yeah somehow, gathered ton of experiences luckily.

omg-DHC CM: How about the team and their blockchain experience?

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: Thanks for asking.
So, as Istarted to work and code on Metafighter 10–12 months ago
I noticed a game development is a different way of build a product
so I needed a team.
I needed a whole game studio — so that’s what I did. It was a good way to get the key talent on board in one fell stroke.
That team is based in Moscow worked together in the office and for the last months we’ve been working remotely with them (COVID of course makes in-person meetings tricky, for now — but this is the Metaverse, right?).
In total we have:
- 2 Blockchain Devs, 3 Fullstack Devs, 3x 2D Artist (lead artist worked for league of legends before).
- 2 Animator and a big team of 5–10 Marketing people executing our campaigns and much more team member and still onboarding to speed up things
- We’ve also got a great team of advisors: Dan, the CEO from NETVRK, has been extremely helpful for instance! We’ve got Francis from Crypto Lifestyle also signed up officially as an advisor! We’re also building out further relationships which will be announced soon. Finally, we have a great content marketing team with TokenDon!

omg-DHC CM: Amazing, that’s very bullish for the project. It also shows hard work and dedication.

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: it was real hard work, but when you work on your passion, every hard work turns into fun work.

omg-DHC CM: The game itself brings back some fun memories, growing up as a kid playing arcade games. Its so cool you brought that to the blockchain world.

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: Happy to see the same emotional memories in people which motivated me actually to start to build this game. Super happy to having this opportunity.

omg-DHC CM: Its awesome.
So how did you come up with the idea of the game? What brought it to fruition?

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: Love this question.
10–12 months ago, I started with Metafighter. I fully immersed myself in game development knowledge. I’ve always had a passion for Street Fighter, the quintessential arcade fighting game. The music, the characters, the seamless gameplay — it was an entire world to get lost in, and get good at.
It dominated my childhood imagination, and I stuffed coins into the arcade machines again and again to complete the game over and over with all the characters and, of course, play my friends and other strangers in that old-school neon arena. I always wanted to create an arcade fighter. With the new horizon of blockchain gaming, I saw an opportunity to bring that awesome fighting game experience to the world of Web3. So here we are!

omg-DHC CM: I hope the characters come with some cool hidden moves.

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: They will for sure.
Highlight also will be each fighter will has his own fighting style and movement. Stay tuned.

omg-DHC CM: Ha I knew it.
I can’t wait.
What are some unique features of the game?

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: Really good question, love it!
So let start with our vision and level of game quality which we gonna bring
We want to bring the next Street Fighter, but on the blockchain, and through a web browser or mobile. Unlike other blockchain games, we have 3D graphics, a dedicated art team sketching each fighter’s concept art and moves that will be rendered in 3D.
Metafighter will have some of the best graphics in blockchain gaming. Our longer term plans to release a standalone PC game, where we can scale that even higher.
As for the gameplay, the team is passionate about arcade fighters like Soul Calibur, Virtua Fighter, Tekken and more. We know what makes these games great and want to emulate it!
And our main game features are following…
⭐️ Fight to Learn (Fight for fun)
⭐️ Fight to Earn (Fight for $FIGHT tokens)
⭐️ Fight to Gain (Fight for EXP)
⭐️ NFT Marketplace (Trade, mint NFTs)
⭐️ Staking for NFTs (Fighter, Skins, EXP Booster, Superpower)
⭐️ Arena NFTs (Rent and advertise)
⭐️ Revenue Stream for Player by lending NFT Fighter
⭐️ Governments (vote for future ingame Arts)
Those we gonna release soon and with the full game release
many things also in development and not even on roadmap which for sure be big surprise.

omg-DHC CM: Oh boy. I can’t wait. I also like the fact that players can play for fun without any obligation and practice before they emerge into the earning stage.

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: Yeah! just to give you a sneak peak…Metafighter will not only played by blockchain gamers, we aim for retail gamers as well
that is also the reason why we gonna come with a “non blockchain” playmode
so if you sitting on a couch and wanna beat up the ass of your friend in a quick fighting match, join Metafighter for a quick fight.

omg-DHC CM: I have a friend in mind that I would like to do that to.

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: he he

omg-DHC CM: Can you tell us about the rewards features of the game and the FIGHT token?

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: Thanks for this great question
Blockchain games are all the rage. Play to Earn is certainly a compelling concept for lifelong gamers. Yet the fun has been lost (already). This is something Metafighter wants to put first. That’s why it’s called ‘Fight to Earn’ not ‘Play to Earn’.
Our Fight-to-Play mode lets any get into the arena and develop their skills and experience the awesome game we’re creating. Of course, Fight-to-Earn is where things get more serious.
Players who like the game can buy tokens and wager them in duels through our matchmaking system. We’ve also got Fight-to-Gain. This is where players who don’t want to gamble with FIGHT tokens or want to build their skills and their character without monetary pressure. Here, wins will power up your character!
The NFTs unlocked by staking FIGHT — including skins, equipment, and skills make fighters unique and let players say ‘this is my fighter’. When they enter the arena, people can see who they are and what they have. They can also trade their NFTs via the marketplace, mapping out a lively in-game economy.

We also have Arena NFTs. These are the most important. The Arena NFTs are lent to people who want to place adverts while people fight. We expect companies to want to be leasing these spaces, and it’s a core source of our income. Yet, we expect that companies (and players) will want to own these arenas.
Another way is we will be offering staking for rewards earned. More details to be shared later on as we develop.

We also will have NFT rentals, where the owner can rent out their valuable NFT’s to those that want it and generate a commission from those rentals.
So as you can see there’s multiple ways that one can generate passive income and we will be sharing more details about these streams in the future.

omg-DHC CM: Very nice. Thank you for the detailed answers.
Any upcoming events coming up that we need to keep our eyes out for?

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: Yes for sure.
We just starting to execute our Marketing campaigns.
First we gonna kickoff our Genesis and early pass NFTs
and you know what? Would you like to create your own NFT Fighter in Metafighter?

omg-DHC CM: Yes

Serkan | CEO Metafighter: If yes, watch out our announcement channels, excited things and campaigns coming.

omg-DHC CM: I am all hyped out now. :)

Ok everyone we will allow questions from our members to ask and then Serkan will be given the time to answer up to five of them. Make sure you post your twitter link to the question as well.

Q: It’s great to see P2E fighter game based upon an arcade classic. What platform it will be able to be played upon, will this be browser-based or available as native apps from gaming consoles to smartphones?

A: First we gonna implement the unity code into webGL to start with a web browser gameplay. Once all testing and public release was successful, we gonna convert the the game into IOS and Android apps, that is our second big sprint on our roadmap.

Q: Hi there, I come from Street Fighter generation playing in game saloons! How easy to change character and sell / buy items ? Any rarity levels you might share? Thanks.

A: Wow, love it! like me actually. :) Metafighter itself will be isolated developed as a unit game, the blockchain is acting as a interface where all in game assets are Stores as an NFT. So you will be the only one who owns any in game assets in your wallet, you will be able to trade, sell or buy on our inhouse developed NFT marketplace. When it comes to rarity levels, yes we will have a Leveling system starting from 1 to 5. Each level up requires EXP which you gonna gather in the gameplay. Along with the EXP there are some more use cases planned.

Q: Since Gaming is becoming the next trend in the crypto, Metafighter definitely has some interesting features. Can you explain the Fight to earn mechanism in more detail and how users can generate passive income from this model? What do you see in 1 year from now?

A: This questions has been answered i assume before, let me just drop my answer again for this. There’s multiple ways that you can generate passive income from MetaFigher: The number 1 way to generate income is obviously “Fight to Earn”. You fight in battles and winner receives tokens that they can claim and purchase more NFT’s (which have value) Another way is we will be offering staking for rewards earned. More details to be shared later on as we develop.
We also will have NFT rentals, where the owner can rent out their valuable NFT’s to those that want it and generate a commission from those rentals.
So as you can see there’s multiple ways that one can generate passive income and we will be sharing more details about these streams in the future.

Q: There is fierce competition in the Fighting game space. Is your aim, to become the number one (leader) in the Fighting Game platform ? And if so what will you say is your biggest strength to achieve it?

A: We want to bring the next Street Fighter, but on the blockchain, and through a web browser or mobile. Unlike other blockchain games, we have 3D graphics, a dedicated art team sketching each fighter’s concept art and moves that will be rendered in 3D. Metafighter will have some of the best graphics in blockchain gaming. Our longer term plans to release a standalone PC game, where we can scale that even higher. As for the gameplay, the team is passionate about arcade fighters like Soul Calibur, Virtua Fighter, Tekken and more. We know what makes these games great and want to emulate it!
Really good question. I think everyone in the world is affected by the global pandemic. The working trend has been moved to working locally isolated, which is sad, cause everyone needs a social relation and contact. However, we at Metafighter believe in our passion to work on this game, independent of where our team members sitting. We are still on track with our roadmap and timeline and even getting ton of attention and demand for new employees. I believe at the end every new situation in the world, brings also new strength and new ideas to make the best out of it.
Awesome questions, love them!
