⚡️ Q&A Summary ⚡️

Roadmap:

  • Roadmap V3 has been officially released (See Roadmap section above)
  • Non-Card market should come after Modern/Wild is released
    • Modern/Wild is estimated for end of July/early August

Land:

  • Land workers will basically be staked on Land to work it, they won't be burned
  • Nate's vision - Enter building and view your worker spots and an artifact spot
    • Artifact spot will allow totems to be used on the plot
    • Totems will provide some type of boost to the plot
  • Land is expected to be integrated in the mobile app, but it will take some time after it is released via desktop
  • Land rarity and type will be completely random (RNG)
    • Meaning there won't be fixed supply caps on rarities or types of Land

Mobile App:

  • Team has a partner working on updates to the mobile app
  • Team requests the updates and the partner makes the developments

Ranked Rewards:

  • New ranked rewards system is still actively being analyzed by the team for improvements
    • To reiterate, goal of the Ranked Reward system is to increase the ROI as you climb to higher leagues
    • Also, team is always looking to make card assets more valuable by giving them more utility
  • Currently, majority of players make up the lowest leagues (Bronze/Silver)
    • This is very common within all games
    • This is a big reason why the game rewards players at higher levels to try to incentivize more players to invest for the higher earnings
  • Current changes under consideration:
    • Season rating reset
    • Daily focus and expanding to more focuses
    • RShare formula and starter card reductions

SPT Interoperability:

  • No current plans on integrating SPT more into Splinterlands
  • Team would love to add utility to SPT, however, it isn't a priority as of now

Splinterfest:

  • Splinterfest ticket prices should be finalized and released in the next couple of days
    • Team plans on allowing DEC/SPS to be used to buy tickets
  • Other group accomodations should be released once finalized too

Chaos Legion Legendary Summoners:

  • Anticipated order of release:
    • Life - Grandmaster Rathe (Moriarty95)
    • Fire - TBD (Jacekw)
    • Water - TBD (Davemccoy)
    • Earth - Immortalis (Cyguy)
    • Death - Astral Entity (Cryptoreaper)
    • Dragon - TBD (Red Panda)

Team is working with another game studio to build a new game on the Splinterlands platform

At the very least, this should act as additional marketing for @splinterlands It is better if they do incorporate NFTs or even just DEC for the game. More eyes and attention we get, the better it is for the HODLers.

As for 3D assets, I think they are overrated. A good art style can make a game age well while even the best 3D assets of an era can look outdated in a matter of years. More 2.5D art and occasional 3D animation should do the trick. I love good graphics. Yet as an investor, I would rather see the team work on bigger priorities.

Would be great if they could find the funding to do a MOBA style game like LoL or DOTA. I would totally re-up for something like that if it also used Splinterlands assets (sans Credits).
