Genesis League Soccer - Splinterlands & MLSPA Partnership

High Level Summary

  • New project will be a play & earn soccer game that will be built in partnership with the Major League Soccer Players Association (MLSPA)
  • Deal was made through the OneTeam organization
    • Manage player associations through NFL, MLB, WNBA, Rugby, etc...
    • This soccer platform is only the first stepping stone for growing into other platforms and leagues
  • Genesis platform will be modeled after the Splinterlands platform
    • Will run on the HIVE blockchain
    • Will run its own set of Validator nodes with its own token associated with the platform
  • This is an exciting opportunity for the team to continue to expand the ecosystem and bring in new investors
    • Rather than let another company take this opportunity, the team wanted to take advantage of the exposure as it will lead to even more opportunities
    • Since the SPL team is creating the platform, the SPL team will have a say in how the economy is designed and how they can create value for SPL asset holders
  • SPL has two seperate teams to allow for this work to be done in tandem with what is being done on Splinterlands as well

Splinterlands Asset Holder Benefits

  • There will be an airdrop for all SPS stakers
    • Will be a token airdrop that is for the whole platform, not just for the soccer platform
    • Team teased a 6 month - 12 month long airdrop
  • Value created for SPS token holders will be through Splinterlands services that are built around SPS modeling
    • Service Examples:
      • Allow payments
      • Account management
      • Customer support
    • Third-party developers will be able to use any of these services which would then create more utility for SPS
  • As more and more platforms are built, more and more new investors will join the ecosystem and benefit everyone

Next Steps

  • Pack sale will begin in October
  • Need to wait for the end of the soccer season to gain the player stats and use them in the game
  • Whitepaper for the Genesis League Platform should be released in the next month or so

GLS Announcements


Q&A

  • Potential gameplay:
    • Will consist of managing a team of players, playing other players online, and earning rewards for winning matches
  • Plan on having a market like Splinterlands to buy/sell/rent the NFTs
  • Genesis League Sports platform will release a token that will be used for all games built on the platform
    • There won't be an individual token for each game built on the platform
  • Validator node code will be generic, but you will need to be running the individual Validator node software for either SPL or GLS
  • More detailed information should all be included in the GLS whitepaper

⚡️ Q&A Summary ⚡️

SPS Ranked Rewards:

  • There is a fixed amount of SPS that will be released for Ranked rewards
    • Will be split between Ranked battles, daily reward chests, and season reward chests
  • Portion for battle rewards will be significantly larger than the current DEC rewards
  • Future iteration of SPS ranked rewards will include SPS staked to receive SPS rewards
    • Won't need to stake it yourself, players can stake on you
    • Will release more information as the team gets closer to implementing this

Reward Dashboard:

  • Team is implementing an internal dashboard with live data feeds
  • Want to make some of it public so whole community could view live data of rewards given out, and many other things

Land:

  • Phase 1 will consist of turning your Land Claim to receive Land Deeds
    • Tract Claim == 100 Land Deeds
    • Claim will let you view where on the map that Land Plot is located
    • Next step will allow you to survey your Land Deed
      • Survey will indicate the type and category your Land Plot is
    • All Deeds will be tradeable on the non-card market
  • Phase 2 will consist of the first Land functionality
    • Harvesting resources, instilling buildings, etc...
  • Phase 3 will probably include the first ability to craft items/spells
  • Land Workers:
    • The older and more rare a card is, the more valuable it will be as a Land worker
    • Land workers won't be allowed to be used in battles while actively on Land
  • PvE Ideas:
    • Boss Fights may involve different types of attacks, stats, armor, etc...
    • Defeating Boss monsters will reward you with prizes of armor or gear
    • May combine armor or gear to be able to advance to the next Boss monster

Rift Watchers:

  • New Rift Watcher cards will include a couple new abilities
  • Generally the team looks at the meta and adds cards/abilities that will try to balance the field
  • Team is hoping that the pre-sale for Rift Watchers will be end of August
    • If you want your SPS to be available, you may want to start unstaking it!
  • Vouchers will most likely work like the Chaos Legion pre-sale
    • Means they will be required in the pre-sale, but participating will reward you with extra benefits

Not good. Seems the splinterlands will get abandoned. No any plan to increase card holders benefits?

The Splinterlands game itself is not getting abandoned by no means...

As the team stated, there are separate teams working on all these projects at the same time. The Splinterlands team itself is the largest still and they are the ones churning out all the development for the roadmap items.

In terms of card holder benefits, owning cards is still very, very valuable as SPS rewards will begin soon for those that actually play Splinterlands. So through Brawls and Ranked play, you will begin receiving SPS. With this SPS, you will then earn other rewards if you stake it like with the GLS airdrop...

To sum it up, if you are a Splinterlands player, this extra project is only going to reward you even more. It will bring new people into the ecosystem and will only help the game grow!

“Validator node code will be generic, but you will need to be running the individual Validator node software for either SPL or GLS.”

Are these SPL nodes (60k) going to form the structure on which these additional games will be based on? Or will that be entirely separate? For example, I buy two nodes on Splinterlands platform. Can I use one to run Splinterlands and second one to run different project?

No, SPL nodes will be specific towards Splinterlands and SPS governance. It will also be different software compared to GLS.

That means, if you want to run a node for SPL, but then switch to GLS, you'd need to switch the software from SPL to GLS, and also make sure you switch the licenses as well.

However, since the Node software will be generic, I think the process will be very simple.

Loving the new UIs that are coming and have already been added into the game. Lots of functionality and information but easy to understand and digest. Scavo look AMAZING!

Scavo Technomancer, please I want 1000 of them, I love it. I like how the market looks, it's amazing. I love the boss battle ideas. eye candy, wonderful, I love them.

I have a question, when revealing the lands, will they be random locations?

Good question! The revealing process has yet to be fully explained, but I believe it was mentioned that it may follow a sequential order. So if you are the very first to convert your claim into a Deed, then you will get the very first location on the map. Then as claims continue to be converted, the locations will be the next spot on the map in order.
