The current Web3 gaming market seems to be misleading us one game after an other. On one hand, the upgraded releases of mining games simply repeats a mining, withdrawing and selling self-destructive life cycle model, and on an other hand, action AAA GameFi masterpieces are expected to be somewhat difficult to produce. To find the light into this darkness, loop-breaking products at a phenomenal level are essential.
Recently, for the first a welfare-themed Web3 game developed based on the BNB Chain (Binance Smart Chain) has successfully attracted the attention of many players and investors. This is also the first phenomenal product in the whole Web3 gaming space or GameFi that proudly shouted the motto of “Allow all players to enjoy and win the benefits of the Web3.0 effortlessly and happily”, that is MetaBase.
It is known that MetaBase will soon initiate its recruitment plan of Genesis nodes on the chain at the end of March, recruiting a total of 150 Genesis nodes, and once the recruitment process will be completed, MetaBase’s GameFi will be going live straight. As stated in the Metabase’s official website introduction, its vision is “to become the world’s leading Web3.0 platform with a full eco-chain”, creating a virtual social network full of fun and creativity for users. In this world, users can participate in the NFT blind box games to obtain valuable NFT badges and land assets, and can also get more benefits by participating in the NFT pledge mining.
In addition, MetaBase also provides an NFT trading marketplace to facilitate users to trade and exchange NFTs. Through Metabase, users can interact with players around the world, meet like-minded people, and create a fully creative and fun metaverse world together.
As an introduction of Web3 games meeting with Web2 users, MetaBase delivers a loop-breaking solution answers that exceed all expectations. Behind these market performances that can’t be ignored, we are curious to learn what kind of social impacts these type of games can have, and will they lead the way for the sustainable loop-breaking wave of decentralized “play to earn” GameFi?
All these questions were answered after I learned more about MetaBase’s ecological layout and economic model.
Easy to get started with, an optimum mix of contents and technologies
After fully playing MetaBase, we found that compared to most Web3 GameFi in the field, its most significant advantage is that it is easy to get started with.
There is no need of game operation skills, no need to understand the complex economic model design, and no need to grasp Web3 related technical knowledge, the game content and chain interaction parts were made as simple as possible.
The content of the game starts with the players opening blind boxes to get rewards that are different and full of surprises. In this metaverse world, you may find cryptocurrencies that will make you instantly rich, or you may find Meta Spirit NFTs that are full of magic, you can upgrade them by pledging or merging them, which will bring you economic returns worth several times your investment cost; and you can also get a metaverse territory that is exclusively yours, where you can make friends and open up your own digital world.
In terms of specific operations, all you need to do is simply click on the task instructions, make free choices and changes in elements such as the opening of blind boxes, participating in pledges, trading NFTs, activating territories, etc. to form a complete set of highly remunerative reward mechanisms. At the same time, you will receive a steady flow of Metabase’s ecosystem native MBAS token rewards during the process.
What is worth mentioning is that the Meta Spirit NFTs’ versatile gameplay allows the players involved in this Web3 GameFi to truly achieve an “all-win” situation. From blind box openings to get an exclusive Meta Spirit NFT, to the NFT market where you can trade and pledge, the gaming process is more like an expression of a creative spirit and happiness, which also naturally generates a need to share and to flaunt.
The game has a rarity algorithm during the processing of NFTs. For example, there are six different Meta Spirit NFT levels: the Fairy Spirit (Level 1 Spirit), Aqua Spirit (Level 2 Spirit), Forest Spirit (Level 3 Spirit), Flame Spirit (Level 4 Spirit), Terra Spirit (Level 5 Spirit), and Golden Spirit (Level 6 Spirit); and five different territories: the Super Earth Territory (1 Star), Planetary Territory (2 Stars), Galactic Hub Territory (3 Stars), Star Empire Territory (4 Stars), and Cosmic Nexus Territory (5 Stars). Players will keep merge upgrading in order to mint more rare NFTs, and keep expanding their Metabase metaverse’s territories after obtaining MBAS tokens.
In this process, players get the pleasures of the game and generous ecological benefit rights in a blind box full of surprises to finally form a sustainable and complete ecological closed loop, which allow them even more easily identify themselves with the scarcity and value. Click, Pledge, and Own. The entire core process of the game is surprisingly simple, and it makes it even more easier to attract users out of the loop. MetaBase’s successful loop-breaking has also clearly put some effort into the on-chain interaction experience.
Happy sharing is the everlasting power of the Web3 games
Beyond the user experience, the phenomenal popularity and successful break of cycles brought by MetaBase may provide some different references to the current misleading GameFi market.
We are accustomed to the wealth factors brought buy traditional GameFi products, attracting money in through a structure close to a Ponzi scheme, trapped into a Fomo’s panic and competing into a first play, first rich cycle.
The wealth factors are also a double-edged sword, the hidden side of building wealth is an inevitable death spiral. The wild swings allows a few people to enjoy the thrill of increasing their fortune, while most people are broken into pieces. Therefore, MetaBase has known very well these factors when designing its game’s economic model. A game that makes everyone happy to participate and happy to enjoy the value brought by the game as a return. This is the everlasting power of the Web3 games.
As a kind of consumer-level entertainment product, the playability, additivity and sustainability are keys to measure its health, and all these are inseparable from his underlying economic ecosystem.
The solution Metabase puts into place is to attract players to join by opening blind boxes to get rewards far higher than the cost of their investment, to build a gameplay with the combination of a diverse mix of Meta Spirit NFTs and metaverse territories to keep players in the game in a casual, step-by-step way.
Even if you can still earn crypto assets in the game, these “play to earn” are not as straightforward and fast as traditional GameFi. Log to play games during your spare time and invest crypto assets for even more NFTs into your portfolio to fully satisfy your emotional values.
Slowly, pragmatically and persistently, restore the essence of happiness and sharing.
It is not really about having a race to strike gold, MetaBase’s Web3 games want to emphasize more on its playability and sustainability, maybe it does not have the fancy skills and x factor, but it is more in line with the taste and perception of players out of the loop. And once enough additional users are retained through the experience, more DApp products based on native MBAS token can be added to the MetaBase’s ecological layout, and building a healthy business model that is on the gameplay will become possible.
I believe that through MetaBase’s “all-win” sustainable economic model design and the “happy sharing” Web3 game development concept, it will become the “loop-breaker” in this field!
