Wolfonaire Chatbox : AMA With Placewar (24th November, 2021)
Hello! Wolfonaire Family & Crypto Enthusiasts
We recently hosted an AMA With Placewar 24 Nov, 2021 at 02.00 PM UTC. This session was phenomenal. If you have missed then here is the precious AMA transcript, for those who missed the live session this will enlighten you for sure…
Guest Speaker :
Ms. Myrtle Anne | Co-Founder, Placewar
(Note: This is the transcription of the event. Please note that the transcript was edited for comprehensibility and coherency, while the content was not changed.)
Myrtle : My name is Myrtle and I’m the founder of PlaceWar. Before PlaceWar, I created Block Tides, an award-winning PR firm in Philippines. I’ve helped hundreds of companies to benefit and transform their businesses to disrupt, adjust or scale utilizing the latest technological tools, products or help to build from scratch. Beyond that, I’m also an official influencer of Coinmarketcap, and the VP of growt & partnership of Gokumarket.
I also run one of the largest scholarship programs in the Phillippines. To combine with my other partners, we are one of the largest in South East Asia, along with MetaGaming Guild.
The core game developers are from Mega Game Studio, a leading mobile gaming studio based in Philippines and Taiwan. With more than 10 years of gaming and development experience in the team, Mega has had a successful track record and is capable of handling all tasks from product creation to marketing and monetization.
Wolf : Amazing !👏Good to hear That. For our members who are not already familiar with the project, can you give us a very high-level overview of what #Placewar is and what competitive edge it brings to the Crypto Universe?
Myrtle : Sure. Thank you for the question, Wolf! 🐺. PlaceWar is a decentralised strategic play-to-earn game metaverse deployed on a multi-chain with highly engaging artillery gameplay that allows players to create and define the outlook of the in-game world through building, battles and alliance.
The core gameplay of PlaceWar is close to worms, if you are familiar with them. It’s a turn-based artillery shooting game where you can adjust your shooting angle and power to eliminate tanks on the enemy’s side. There are PVE, 3V3 PVP and 10V10 Guild War.
You can get token rewards, NFT and non-NFT resources in PVE and PVP games, you can bet on yourself and earn wagers when winning in Guild War games.
Wolf : How do holders of the #Placewar Tokens benefit in the ecosystem? What power within your model do individuals hold? Why is it so attractive and what are the basic requirements to participate?
Myrtle : We have dual token system: governance token.
$PLACR and in-game currency $GEAR.
$PLACE has a fixed cap of 1B. It’s mainly for governance voting and crafting of NFTs.
$GEAR token is unlimited in supply and is used for paying for all in-game items and usage.
We have a fuel tank mechanism where players will need to either wait or burn $GEAR to put tanks back to action. In this way we effectively have a control over inflation of $GEAR.
The initial market cap will be around 500k which is reasonable to ensure sufficient liquidity but not too much dumping pressure. Our team is very confident in the project and we actually have a 2 year lockup period.
PlaceWar has two systems: Battle system and Pixel system. In Battle system, you need 3 tank NFTs to start a PVE challenge taking on NPCs, or a PVP battle against a random player.
PVE and PVP will be available in V1 and V1.5 which will be launched separately in December.
A demo is now available in our website, placewar.io. Fill out the form and it will direct you to a download link via APK android.
When we launch V2 which is the Pixel system, we will have the Placedonia, a canvas map divided into 90k small pixel lands, where players are able to park their tanks, collect resources, construct buildings, and choose a color to represent their land on the world map. As I mentioned, it’s a canvas map, so the goal is to get users to create their own paintings but how?
We allow users to attack each other. You can invade other pixels by challenging their defenders in a tank battle. Upon winning you will be able to loot their unharvested resources and force change their color — make their pixel to join your painting territory.
Wolf : Have you met all your goals in the roadmap till now? And were there any difficulties that you didn’t expect and were not prepared for?
- GameOn Submit Pitch Competition Top 10 Finalist
- Conflux Network L1 Grant
- BoringDAO NFT Bridge Ecosystem Project
- We are listed on Gate.io, Hoo, ZT, Pancakeswap, Dodo
- We released our playable demo yesterday
Difficulties and challenges are always there — communication inside your team is the most important part as well as to address anything to our community.
No company is perfect, but with the right mindset. The team & community can make the company perfect.
Wolf : Great Answer myrtleology
Myrtle : There’s a lot of critics already, let’s encourage each other instead 😀. We are here for a purpose. We are here to help each other.
Wolf : This is really important,Perfection is a myth.
Myrtle : That’s true. What the status quo placed in our beliefs that you need to be perfect. If you’ve watched Black Mirror, NoseDive on Netflix you know what I am saying.
Wolf : If you are committed and consistent about work,eventually you’ll deliver. Can you please give us a short tutorial on how even a nontech guy can easily use and enjoy your platform?
Myrtle : Sure! Basic explanation is for you to know the right strategy how to aim targetting your enemies.
The one I’ve sent earlier
Our game is very easy to understand. You can read the whole mechanism of our gameplay here: https://placewar.medium.com/placewar-a-decentralized-strategic-play-to-earn-game-universe-deployed-on-a-multi-chain-with-4dc0725f3f43
Our goal is for everyone to have fun while playing and earning. You can try our demo 😀. We will release in depth tutorials soon.
Lets move for the Twitter round
Q1. I see in your twitter that Placewar have plans to launch its first version of the game with some features, but when will you launch the full game
Ans. We will launch the full game next Q1, 2022. You can try our our demo now on our website and can participate in our demo giveaway 😀.
Q2. There is fierce competition in the finance industry. Obviously, there are other projects that look like you. How will PlaceWar deal with its rivals? Do you have details to guide users to you?
Ans. In this world, many wants to compete with other. Our vision is actually to BUILD and SOLVE. As you can see, we are not a typical play to earn out there that you see listed in CMC. We will provide inclusion and education especially for the newbies in this space. Because PlaceWar is not just limited in the crypto sphere.
Q3. Gaming is continuing to make it’s mark in the cryptosphere. Blockchains application within gaming is an obvious one, as in-game tokenization is extremely common. What little difference are PlaceWar doing that makes it different from other game tokens?
Ans. Our strengths over existing games:
1. We allow user generated content (Pixel canvas world), which is something other P2E games don’t have
2. We have a core gameplay which is the artillery shooting, this is something other openworld games doesn’t have
3. We tie our incentives to creation with the core battle system. Using Pixel land scarcity for the purpose of creating a painting, which means players need to fight each other to take control of pixel colors to create. This would increase the interaction between players, not just with the game incentive mechanism.
This would generate genuine in-game currency spending and revenue, rather than traffic induced by P2E incentives.
Pixel is our land system, players can buy Pixel land which generates resources and tokens randomly, and allow users to build buildings which produce resources or put Buffs.
But here every Pixel has a color representing the pixel on the world map. Players can attack others’ land and have to defeat the defenders, which are a NPC that defend the Pixel land.
Lets Move For The Community Round
Q1. Marketing is a central element for every project, so that everyone knows the potential that a project can bring is vital to achieve the goals set. What is your strategy to attract new users and Investor to your platform and keep them long term?
Ans. I came from the Marketing and PR with Block Tides and we are an award winning firm for Blockchain, Crypto, NFT & Defi.
We already have a lot of plans when it comes to marketing PlaceWar.
We also have different KOLs around the world.
We also have different investors from different countries.
Our main seed investors are Crypto.com and LD Capital.
Q2. The idea of project is really unique and incredible, how did this idea come about?
Ans. It’s inspired by r/place, the internet sensation in reddit. Alongside with the great partners we have in the team are real OGs in the crypto space.
Now the session ends with lots of thanks to our Guest Speaker…
