Host: Thank you for introducing yourself @myrtleology. Truly an exceptional individual
For the next question:
Can you please give us a brief introduction to what is PlaceWar? And a little sneak peek on its upcoming IDO?
Ms. Myrtle: PlaceWar is a strategic play-to-earn social game universe deployed on a multi-chain with highly engaging artillery gameplay.
The game provides a gamified Internet culture metaverse and an open world for gamers and design enthusiasts, not just limited to the crypto space.
If you’re familiar with Gunbound, Clash of Clans, and Fortress V2. You’ll surely love this game.
Host: Definitely know these games!
Ms. Myrtle: Ofcourse, RedKite and Gamefi Comes with PCS and listing Gate.io the next day November 13
Host: That is exciting to hear and surely everyone will be interested in playing PlaceWar too!
Ms. Myrtle: Ofcourse! Wanna try playing it? I have the beta test already
Host: Really? Haha will connect to play in beta And don’t worry everyone! You will have your chance as well!
Ms. Myrtle: Don’t spoil it. Exclusively for you. It’ll be available for everyone after IDO. And we have the NFT sales at…
Stay tuned! Don’t want bad juju!
Host: For our 3rd question, @myrtleology:
Tokenomic is crucial to a project. Can you share with us your tokenomics? What are the $PLACE use cases?
Ms. Myrtle: Aha! Before I answer that. You can check our post for everyone’s FYI (NFA) but I want everyone to be #SAFU HERE
You can see the full details HERE:
Host: Please check it out everyone
Ms. Myrtle: Our tokenomics was planned by our advisors carefully. It’s important to understand how it’ll go and how it’ll work which a lot of people don’t know. They tend to jump in a boat without proper education and knowledge. So we want everyone to know that it’s important to check the team, market fit, backers, and tokenomics.
Host: I totally agree! Tokenomics is how projects will stay in long term and proper scrutinization should be made
Ms. Myrtle: Then a lot of people will compare projects without checking the tokenomics, team, strategy, and plans.
Host: HAHA, Thank you @myrtleology! Let’s go ahead for the next Segment - Twitter Questions
In segment 2, the Red Kite team picked questions from the Twitter announcement to answer in this AMA session.
Host: This will be the Twitter Questions
Earlier, our team have picked questions from this announcement: HERE
1st question from @SophiaL77148558:
Can you point out a few features or features that you like the most about the platform so that it can compete with other competitors? What are you most confident about for your platform?
Ms. Myrtle: Our tokenomics.
We don’t want to compare ourselves with other P2E out there. Because that’s not how our mind is set in this field but to build.
Our strengths over existing games:
We allow user generated content (Pixel canvas world), which is something other P2E games don’t have
We have a core gameplay which is the artillery shooting, this is something other openworld games doesn’t have
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. Win an invasion means the attacker can loot resources and force change others colors. You see the trick here? You can create, literally draw a painting on the world map, by change pixel colors to what you need. You can draw a Bitcoin, a Ethereum, or a national flag.
But our game actually gives players in both developed countries and developing countries an incentive to participate. People in developed countries may wanna just win their territory on map, so they need help from other players to join force with them, who can be P2E players from developing countries. Rich players pay, P2E players work.
2nd question from @GabrielleSumik:
One of the most important parts of a project’s success is community support. Is there anything specific plans to extend the community (how users can engage in your ecosystem) as well as improve the user experience?
Ms. Myrtle: We’ve onboarded global KOLs
We’ve onboarded global investors
We already have communities for Vietnam, China, Korea, Es, Europe, Asia, Russia
We’ve got huge backers such as Crypto.com, BoringDao, AC Capital, and Iotex and many more.
3rd question from @mogolsorma:
Many games today set high costs to start the game & therefore start with a small player base. Does PlaceWar_ an entrance fee or starting conditions & if so, what are they? Do I need to hold an NFT or hold a certain amount of tokens in order to enjoy & play the PlaceWar ?
Ms. Myrtle: The core gameplay of PlaceWar is close to Gunbound or Fortress V2 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 wining in Guild War games.
There is a Pixel system which is essentially our land system. What’s different is that our Pixel is a canvas world called Placedonia divided into 90k small pixel lands ownable as NFTs. You can construct buildings, collect resources, and choose a color to represent your pixel. Putting all pixels together you can even create your own paintings. We allow players to invade each other to loot unharvested resources and force change colours of other pixels. In this way you can create your own visual territory and pattern in the Pixel world. There is endless possibilities there as it can evolve into a new form of DAO and create new paradigm for community building
4th question from @Courtneygrin9:
Security is a fundamental factor. What are the security protocols that you have included in your platform to protect all the assets of your main commercial partners and game players?
Ms. Myrtle: It all starts with the users to know the safety measures for their crypto to be safe.
• It’s our responsibility to educate users how not to be scammed by educating them
• Education is the key to simplify the “jargons” in the Blockchain and Crypto tech terms
We will release our audits once smart contract is live and the game
We will make sure our devs and team will tirelessly work to fulfill everyone’s expectations
For the last question from @AtendaX:
For beginners or people who just know about crypto and participate, but they don’t know anything about this, how do you get them to understand this project? and what strategies will you make to make this project a favorite choice in the crypto community?
Ms. Myrtle: Being in the PR and marketing for Crypto and Blockchain, we are an award winning firm since 2016 with Block Tides, we will make sure we will make our community to understand everything about crypto and Blockchain. Even 5 years old and 70+ yo will def understand.
We have the experience
We have the knowledge
We have the confidence
