Mech Master x Satoshi Club AMA Recap from the 22nd of October

Hello, Satoshi clubbers! Another AMA took place in Satoshi Club and we would like to introduce to you the AMA session with our friends from Mech Master and our guest, @ron_nhd. The AMA took place on the 22nd of October.

The AMA session was divided into 3 parts with a total crypto reward pool of 500$.

In this AMA Recap, we will try to summarise the most interesting points for you.

Part 1 — introduction and questions from the Telegram&WebSite

Jonah

| Satoshi Club: Our guest today is @ron_nhd. Welcome to Satoshi Club!

Ron: Hi everyone at Satoshi Club! Thank you for the opportunity to bring Mech Master to the big and legit community like Satoshi Club! What a chance for us!

Mary | Satoshi Club: Hello! We are happy to see you here

How’s going?

Ron: Very well Mary, thanks for asking. Super busy but excited for our upcoming IDO, and yourself?

Mary | Satoshi Club: I feel excited! As we have such project here today

So… let’s start our AMA

And we will start it with introduction. Ron, could you please introduce yourself and tell us more about Mech Master?

Ron: Nice! I’m Ron Nguyen, CMO of Mirai Studio, the studio behind Mech Master. I personally have 10+ years of experience in marketing in general, I am a full-stake marketing person myself, and a fanboy of decentralized tech. We’re based in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Mary | Satoshi Club: How did you get involved in crypto?

Ron: I’ve been doing marketing for tech companies. It was how I stumbled upon blockchain and crypto.

Let me share with you guys more about Mech Master.

Mary | Satoshi Club: Sure

Ron: Mech Master is an upcoming P2E NFT game. It’s the first-ever 3D turn-based mecha blockchain game, with strategic RPG elements, where users can earn tokens through skilful gameplay and smart trading.

In the Mech universe, you are challenged to collect giant fighting machines and futuristic weapons to save the world. Being an experienced pilot in Augmented Reality, you set yourself apart from other players with unique tactics and sharp decision-making skills.

Being a blockchain game in a sci-fi setting, not only combat arenas will earn you a reward, but you can also profit from battles by earning Mech tokens.

Let me show a video introducing the P2E part of Mech Master as below.

Mary | Satoshi Club: Awesome visualisation!

For how long was you project building? Who is behind this? What can you tell us about Mech Master team?

Ron: I met Hikari (you can read more about him here: https://medium.com/mech-master/mech-master-spotlight-series-hikari-mai-project-manager-52e58697e2d1), also the founder of the project, and started Mirai studio. So here we are today with Mech Master, the debut game of Mirai Studio.

Mech Master is the result of the contribution of 30+ people. We are a team of experts and highly skilled individuals across the country, who came together for one mission only — creating this incredible mecha game for everyone.

Our team is based in Vietnam, and we came from many international game companies established here in Vietnam, such as Microsoft Publish, Gameloft, Scopely and so on.

Mary | Satoshi Club: Impressive

Nice team!

Thank you for your intro, Ron! We choose 6 questions from our community for the first part

Are you ready for them?

Ron: More than ready, Mary!

Q1 from Telegram user @DK177:

Currently, a lot of gaming platforms are based on hypothetical backgrounds. Similarly, in Mech Master, players can buy pieces of land and develop their own cities on the moon. Did you choose this gameplay according to this trend? Or is there any other reason? How did this idea come to your mind? Further, do you offer any detailed guidelines including some videos for the players? What should be the ultimate target of a player? Is it to develop as many cities as they can?

Ron: Oh, I thought it’s 1 question

Mary | Satoshi Club: It’s the first

Jonah

| Satoshi Club: Still have more

Ron: The reason we choose robot theme is that 50% of our team mates in the Mirai Studio have the experience of working in Japan and we all love the Gunpla culture. So, we thought why not to make it happen by us? Then we started to draft some drawings, then some 3D images and we decided to go with that theme. Here we are today with Mech Master, the debut game of Mirai Studio.

The ultimate target of players in Mech Master game is to collect giant fighting machines and futuristic weapons to save the world. Being an experienced pilot in Augmented Reality, you set yourself apart from other players with unique tactics and sharp decision-making skills.

Let me show you the video of Legion, this character is based on human form.

Mary | Satoshi Club: Did you already prepare guidance for your players?

Ron: Not yet, Mary. The game will be released in Q1 2022. Right now, with the early version we have, it’s not enough to create guidelines for users to follow and many changes will happen during the time from now till the full game release.

Jonah

| Satoshi Club: That’s few months from now.

Mary | Satoshi Club: Gotcha! We will wait for it

Jonah

| Satoshi Club: Will players be able to create their own weapons?

Ron: This is a good idea but for now, it’s not possible. All weapons are premade by us for users to buy and upgrade. But later on, we might think about this possibility.

Jonah

| Satoshi Club: Awesome, in what ways will you allow users to carry out weapon upgrades?

Ron: MECH token will have the main utility for this purpose together with level up by battling with other players through PVP, events or tournaments.

Mary | Satoshi Club: Thank you for your answers! Ready to go to the next question?

Ron: Sure do, Mary!

Q2 from Telegram user @captainprice111:

Do I need to have an NFT or a certain amount of MECH coins to play the Mech Master game? Will there be an entry fee for the Mech Master? How can I make my Mechas strong and equipped against Krakens from other planets? Is there an infrastructure for me to make my Mechas strong? Is there an infrastructure for me to buy an NFT or power it up with MECH tokens in an in-game marketplace? I want to have the rarest Mechas in the world of Mech Master, what should I do for it?

Ron: Generally, players can just have 3 Mechas to start with. And that’s it. They can start battles and earn MECH tokens.

I hate to say this but Mech Master isn’t a pay to win game and it will never be. Mechas can be different with stats depending on their levels and rarity with its equipments. However, it doesn’t guarantee a win. Any weaker Mechas can win stronger Mechas by being smart in skills and strategy. Therefore, my advice is that players should concentrate in improving skills than just focusing on buying upgrades to make Mechas stronger. Stronger Mechas obviously can help you to win but it’s not a must.

Some of the elements players can focus to improve their Mechas:

  • The ability to improve Mechas over the course of the game by increasing Mechas statistics or levels.
  • A menu-based combat system with several choices of skills and powers as well as an active inventory system with wearable equipment such as armours and weapons.
  • The ability to interact with elements of the environment or storyline through additional abilities.
  • The existence of certain character classes that define the characteristics, skills, abilities, and spells of a character.

And here is the list of our 7 characters:

  • Legion
  • Ravager
  • Giant
  • Alien
  • Aerial
  • Relic
  • Shapeshifter

Mary | Satoshi Club: Ok, but can we play free?

Ron: No and yes. The game is free. But you need to own at lease 3 Mechas to battle. Mechas need to be bought at the Mech Master Marketplace in form of NFTs or open from the mystery boxes.

However, we plan to allow players who own Mechas and land to hire mercenaries to play for them. So those who join mercenaries teams, they can actually play for free and still earn tokens.

Jonah

| Satoshi Club: Is there a limit to how many Mechas a user can own?

Ron: No, we don’t have that limitation for now. Users can stake as much as they want.

Jonah

| Satoshi Club: Great.

Mary | Satoshi Club: Thank you for your answers, Ron! Ready to proceed?

Ron: Lovely!

Q3 from Telegram user @Highpee:

You said you are one of the first blockchain games to implement Augmented Reality (AR) technology into games which is impressive. How will user experience these AR feelings while playing your game? Will you be introducing your own AR/VR gears that players will use to transcend into the virtual mecha world? You also said that players will be able to take photos with their Mecha and take these along with themselves everywhere. Hence, I will like to ask, how will players get to meet Mecha, pose with it, take selfies and use these selfies or pictures in real life?

Ron: Yes, AR is an important part of Mech Master to improve the experience of players. So, basically, players can battle on their screen. However, with AR, players can bring the battle to happen on any surface in front of them.

One of the barriers, though, is that it usually require a higher-end phone. However, we’ll try to optimize to bring this feature to as many players as possible.

No, we don’t want to have our own AR gears, it’s just not what we do, we want to focus on blockchain gaming and Mech Master.

So to take a selfie with our Mechas, you just need to open our mobile game, there will be a feature for you to take photos with your NFT Mechas. For example, here’s how our team mates try to fight with a Mecha

And this is how we brought the Mecha to life in our office.

Mary | Satoshi Club: Will we be able to play both on phones and computers?

Ron: Sure, iOS and Android version will be released with PC version.

Mary | Satoshi Club: Awesome! Can’t wait to play

Jonah

| Satoshi Club: I will like to try this out

Ron: Me too bro and sis!

Mary | Satoshi Club: Thank you for your answers! Ready to jump to the next question?

Ron: I’m in the mood, Mary!

Q4 from Telegram user @Cheriemike:

On the 24th of October 2021,you will have your IDO/IGO on two platforms, GameFi and Redkite. I noticed you have prepared two pools on the IDO pool (Private) and the other on the community pool (Public). My question is, after users complete their KYC process, what cryptocurrency will users have to use for the particular tiers they want in the IDO/IGO? Can you tell us about the tier system in both pools? How many are they and what is the weight each tier has? At what specified amount will users purchase your token? Please kindly share more details about the event.

Ron:

  1. BUSD
  2. Private pool: 0.03 BUSD; IDO/IGO pool: 0.04 BUSD
  3. For the tier, I think it’s better to get on RedKite and GameFi to find more information as it’s their practice than anything relating to Mech Master.

Please find their communities here below:
https://t.me/PolkaFoundry
https://t.me/GameFi_Official

For the ranking system and min max cap, please find it here:

  1. Community pool doesn’t require tiers and KYC, IDO pool needs KYC and tiers.
  2. Here we have a very detailed guide so that everyone can follow and have the chance to join our IDO at RedKite and GameFi on 24th OCT: https://medium.com/mech-master/step-by-step-tutorial-on-joining-whitelist-for-ido-igo-on-gamefi-and-red-kite-9bc6a6fab53e

Jonah

| Satoshi Club: What is your allocation for the IDO and IGO?

Ron: Here is our moon sheet for better view:

Jonah

| Satoshi Club: Great, thanks for sharing.

Mary | Satoshi Club: Awesome! I think you’re already oversubscribed, am I right?)

Ron: Seems like it as people in our global and local communities and other communities we know are waiting for the IDO date to grab some $MECH!

They are very excited and have high hopes for our tokens!

Mary | Satoshi Club: Let’s see who will be lucky to buy

Thank you for your answers! Ready for next question?

Ron: Please shoot, Mary!

Q5 from Telegram user @victorogb:

A facility that would be available on Mech Master’s Moonland is the Pilot Academy. As stated, this would be a hub for players to recruit, train and exchange Mecha Pilots. Even as players interact and perform such operations, may we know a little bit more about this unique metaverse?How will players easily carry out these activities, are they expected to pay certain fees for each action and will these skills determine the level of competency and rarity of each Pilot? What is the exchange process of these Pilots? Also, since the Pilot Academy cannot be sold, except they are sold alongside a MoonBase, does that mean that players can build their own Pilot Academies?

Ron: There are 5 tiers of rarity of Pilot:

  • Common
  • Uncommon
  • Rare
  • Epic
  • Legendary

Apart from these five there will also be two special tiers for:

● Limited time items
● Set equipment

There will be a different NFT category for different roles and according to gameplay. For example, a Pilot is an ERC-721 collectible representing a character who can control the Mecha.

Training for a new Mecha Pilot is an exceedingly tough task and requires a lot of resources. But the advantages each Pilot brings to the Mecha are indisputable. Each Pilot has a special ability, and when combined with the suitable Mecha, they will create an unstoppable duo.

Similarly, Moonbase has its own NFT which is an ERC-721 NFT collectible representing a piece of land on the moon. There is only one Moon in the Mech universe, so the number of Moonbases are limited. Moonbase is required to build any Settlement.

All NFT items can be exchanged or bought out at Mech Master Marketplace. Or the best way is to find them in the NFT Mystery Box.

And no, players can’t build their own Pilot Academies.

Mary | Satoshi Club: So, as I understand you will use Ethereum blockchain? Or I am wrong?

Ron: Mech Master will be on BSC first and we’ll open to more chains later on. The main reason is that this chain has many users in our target market. Also, games like Mech Master create a big number of transactions. Gas fee on BSC is considered as the most affordable on the market and it’s a good reason to attract players.

Mary | Satoshi Club: True! Excellent choice! So, your NFTs will be tradable on BSC marketplaces

Ron: That’s true.

Mary | Satoshi Club: Thank you for your answers! Ready to go to the 6th and last question from this part?

Ron: Okay Mary, please proceed!

Q6 from Telegram user @Ecmq10:

Hello Mech Master team. I read about a feature that caught my attention within the Mech Master platform. It says that MECH holders can use MECH tokens in the Gacha system to receive randomized rewards. Can you tell us in more detail how exactly this system works? How often will these rewards be distributed? Is there a way to increase our chance of receiving those rewards?

Ron: The Gacha system we plan to implement is kind of a pool of rewards. For every 5 wins continuously, users can get a Gacha ticket for the lucky draw from the system, which includines weapons, custom skins, components and even Mechas (but with a real low rate). There’s no way to increase the chance to get any item you want, it’s actually 100% luck (and we make sure it’s luck so that it can be fair to all the players).

Mary | Satoshi Club: I want to be lucky

Actually everyone will be able to check his luck)

Thank you for this part, Ron! Now we came close to the most exciting part of our AMA! Live part! Ready for it?

Ron: Yeah, I’m ready, please let it all in!!!

Mary | Satoshi Club: Let’s go

Part 2 — live questions from the Telegram community

Q1 from Telegram user @Shershah412:

I found that the Private Sale will open tomorrow. Is there any step by step tutorial on how to join the whitelist for the private pools on Redkite and GameFi?

Ron: Great, we have a detailed article for that. Please follow each step and you will be sure about some slots at our IDO, bro.

https://medium.com/mech-master/step-by-step-tutorial-on-joining-whitelist-for-ido-igo-on-gamefi-and-red-kite-9bc6a6fab53e

Q2 from Telegram user @highque100:

It is known that BSC is helpful for various projects in several ways. But still, what made you build your project on BSC? How will BSC network be a reliever for your project’s inflation?

Ron: We believe inflation is a problem that the Mech Master team must think about and handle very carefully, or it could crash the whole ecosystem. But it’s not necessarily caused by the chain.

In order to avoid inflation, Mech Master focuses on managing MECH token’s circulation carefully and has a suitable burning mechanism to avoid generating too many MECH tokens. One of the most common burning mechanics in the Mech Master game is that when a player uses $MECH to upgrade Mecha (weapons, equipment, pilots, etc.), 55% of the total tokens needed for the upgrade will be burned. The remaining 45% will go to funds including marketing, liquidity, founders, advisors and development.

Similarly, the needs to use MECH tokens in the game all generate the similar burn mechanism with different rates to always maintain a reasonable amount of traffic throughout the game operation and this amount of traffic is always strictly controlled.

Q3 from Telegram user @smelekin:

I checked your social media accounts and saw that you have a Telegram page in English, but there are many people that still don’t speak English so my question is, do you plan to build local Telegram chats for people who don’t speak English?

Ron: We know there are a lot of people out there that can’t speak English, so we have set up a list of communities for non-English speaking people as below:

Official Discussion Channels:

Please have a look and if you want to suggest any language, feel free to join our global channel and suggest us anytime.

Q4 from Telegram user @Karry1999:

In the website I read that Mech Master has done renowned partners and backers like Icetea Labs, Redkite, Basics Capital, AU21 and many more. Will you tell me how these backers had helped in the growth of Mech Master?

Ron:

We’re lucky to have such huge support from our partners in term of marketing, partnerships of biz and tech, and especially the connection to large community bases.

And I, personally, get the chance to work with awesome teams!

Now all marketing activities are focused on this milestone. In parallel, from now until the end of the year, Mech Master will expand cooperation with domestic and foreign game and technology partners to equip Mech Master game with outstanding advantages in terms of images, security and some orientation on multiplayer gameplay (never appeared on the market). And sure, we can’t do that without the support of our partners. So, kudos to them.

Q5 from Telegram user @feranno:

Moonland is the first interactive 3D Virtual World of the Moon, divided into parcels of land, each represented by a unique NFT. So, can I sell my developed land to new players with more effort than other players or can I generate income in another way? Do you have any restrictions on sales rights?

Ron:

No, we don’t. Thank you for asking this question. We want Mech Master to be a place where players interact with players to create a market with as much potential as possible. We don’t want to get involved too much in the market. We’ll focus on the game and make sure the market goes along well.

Q6 from Telegram user @rinnguyen:

There are already many P2E NFT games, how will Mech Master survive in this crypto market with so much competition?

Ron: You know there are many NFT/Blockchain games right now and it’s trending at the moment. However, if you agree with me or not, most of the games are focused on the trading side, instead of the gaming.

We want to change that.

Mech Master gameplay allows players to assemble a line-up full of giant Mechas with gorgeous 3D models to battle against others, recruit new pilots, collect new light sabres and energy cannons, show off tactical powers and much more.

Almost every item in the game is created by players, from materials found by players. They will become players’ own unique assets which can be very valuable on the trade market.

Players can assemble a line-up full Mech Master competitive advantage, including:

  • Top-notch graphics
  • Full metaverse implementation (already in progress, not just on paper)
  • Huge number of NFT items create a larger market, based on the number of Mechas and all NFT items involve around them.
  • Brand new and from the scratch coding
  • The most balanced game algorithm on the market
  • Gunpla culture from Japan

Q7 from Telegram user @maindratagustinus:

This game really reminds me of a PC game called Rising Force Online/CCR INC and I really enjoy the game, so Mech Master makes me nostalgic.
Anyway, there are so many new projects recently. So, can you explain to us, what makes Mech Master different from other competitors? Does this game have PvP feature?

Ron:

Mech Master is a PVP game at its core. So you will love it as you loved you previous PVP game.

For what makes the game standing out, like I shared in my previous answers, including: top-notch graphic, full metaverse implementation and huge number of NFT items creates a larger market, based on the number of Mechas and all NFT items involve around them.

Q8 from Telegram user @lattebuck:

As we all know, the reason De-Fi projects are being hacked is because of bugs on their smart contracts so, how can I be sure that the smart contract of Mech Master is secure?

Ron: It’s just impossible to make anything 100% safe these days in the digital world. Anything is just hackable, even the biggest tech company on earth.

Therefore, to make the smart contract safe, we’re in discussion with Haken to be our auditor soon. Additionally, we’ll follow strictly the best practice provided by auditor to make sure our smart contract is safe and intact, together with a system admin security to deliver the finest protection we can do.

Q9 from Telegram user @one23i:

Please tell me about what events and priorities does your team have? Do you have any roadmap released and are you a public or anonymous team?

Ron:

The important milestone now is that Mech Master will IDO on October 24 on Redkite and GameFi. At the moment, all marketing activities are focused on this milestone. In parallel, from now until the end of the year, Mech Master will expand cooperation with domestic and foreign game and technology partners to equip Mech Master game with outstanding advantages in terms of images, security and some orientation on multiplayer gameplay (never appeared on the market).

Q10 from Telegram user @dondetect:

Mech Master has great potential and people are getting crazy about this project, but there are still many investors that don’t know about it. Do you have any plans to reach more investors?

Ron: As of today, we’ve already closed our private round. So that means we are not going to find any more investors in the near future. However, when we’ll need resources to grow, yes, we might need more investors. But for now, we think we’re good at least for another year or two with the current support of our investors.

Part 3 — Quiz Results

As usual, for the third part, Satoshi Club Team asked the chat 4 questions about the crypto project. A link to a Quiz form was sent into the chat.
