Tokenomics was done under the advice of our incubator, Bloktopia and we are still refurbishing our tokenomics structure, but we will be sure to release the full scale of that in our latest whitepaper to be released soon.
MaticNews x MetaClash AMA Recap and Transcript
MaticNews: Welcome to MaticNews! Please give us an introduction of you and your team! What past experiences you all have?
MetaClash: Thanks for the welcome!!! Most of us in MetaCash have gaming, business development, and extensive marketing backgrounds. I'm the CMO for MetaClash, and will be doing the AMA for today. Been doing Marketing for multiple industries for almost 8 years, focused on performance and growth marketing, nice to meet you all! As avid gamers ourselves, we believe in creating a platform that other gamers can enjoy as well, with earning as part of its benefits, but not the main purpose.
MaticNews: Out of curiosity, why did you choose this name? Is there any background story?
MetaClash: Yes there is, so basically... we were playing around with the words Metaverse Battle or Meta Battle? But it didn't seem to sound as catchy or great so we used the word Clash as opposed to battle ... so Metaverse Clash eventually transformed into MetaClash.
MaticNews: Furthermore, what is metaclash.online? Please introduce the project to us!
MetaClash: MetaClash: Digital Avatars of Destruction is a competitive Mass-Multiplayer Online shooter game where players can customize their combat vehicles through NFTs, adventure as PFP avatars, battle in multiple game modes, and interact in the Play-and-Earn metaverse. Player-established factions can vote on propositions that dictate the development, progression of their establishments, and battle for dominance.
Basically, it's a player vs player (PvP) game, that you can play for.. free! But of course, having our NFTs earlier on, gives you more advantage in-game!
MaticNews: What are your mission and vision?
MetaClash: Our Mission is to create an inclusive, decentralized battleground for the metaverse where gamers and NFT holders can connect and play against one another. It's also our vision to provide a Metaverse Battle Game that people can actually ENJOY, and also EARN and start playing for free! There aren't a lot of those in this space yet!
MaticNews: Do you guys have a native Token?
MetaClash: Metaclash’s native token will be $PCORE and its utilities include governance voting rights, staking, purchasing plasma energy core, vehicle parts, loot boxes, cosmetics skins, upgrade of vehicle parts, and game rewards.
MaticNews: How do you keep it sustainable and most important profitable to play to your game?
MetaClash: By making the game more enjoyable, centered towards actual gamers vs just those playing for earning purposes. A player can start for free and work its way up to a higher ranking or level, and be able to collect coins or rewards from winning each battle. They can then sell those rewards to other players who want to upgrade or if they have their NFT, can sell out those NFT parts in-game to get ahead in the game! It's a basic web 2 game earning model, integrated within the web 3 based earning!
We definitely want to avoid being a typical P2E, so we want people to enjoy and feel invested in the game - like any game should be.
MaticNews: Would you like to explain to us your game overview and gameplay flow?
MetaClash: Basically, we will have with having 4 game modes in the long run: the escort the cargo , team deathmatch, MetaClash open world, and faction wars. Each game modes have different objectives of course. In the initial beta launch, we will only have the Escort The Cargo and Death Match. Escort the cargo is being able to deliver something over a certain location within the game at a specific time, and the Deathmatch is basically being able to battle against another player.
The faction war, later on is being able to choose a faction to play with, and play with that faction.
MaticNews: Excellent! Will they be available at the start of the game?
MetaClash: Initially, just escort the cargo first, then the death match. The other game modes will be available further in the game development process.
MaticNews: Will you use any NFTs and which role will they have in the ecosystem? Potentially we could really see a strong and key utility of them!
MetaClash: Yes we will use NFTs and NFT owners will be able to have access to staking rewards, genesis battle pass, limited edition skins (based on what NFT they get), Priority Access to MetaClash events, Partnership discounts, MetaClash Garage & Clubhouse Access. Only NFT owners will have these utilities so it is important to get WHITELISTED to secure your spot with the NFT before the public release!
MaticNews: Will be any rarity mechanism that will help us choose the best ones to buy?
MetaClash: We have 4 tiers basically UNCOMMON, RARE, EPIC, and LEGENDARY, BUT the NFTs for uncommon, rare, and epic will be mixed, meaning, 1 NFT can have an UNCOMMON body, RARE wheels, or EPIC chassis (these are the parts of a DIgital Avatars of Destruction NFTs).. only the 9 LEGENDARY NFTs will have 100% all legendary parts.
MaticNews: Now that everything is clear! How can we join your ecosystem?
MetaClash: First you need to join our discord channel: https://discord.com/invite/pDy5D2wDG2, as we give out whitelist spots there, special game announcements, game nights, airdrops and many more! Then the second one is getting whitelisted to get the NFT ahead of the public release, you can do that by registering at our website at metaclash.online/whitelist. Then once our Beta Version is released, only the NFT owners will have first-hand access to that, before it becomes available to public. Once the public version is out, all you gotta do is join in, and play the game!
MaticNews: Let’s talk about the tokenomics! Please tell us about yours and about why you chose this model?
MetaClash: Tokenomics was done under the advice of our incubator, Bloktopia and we are still refurbishing our tokenomics structure, but we will be sure to release the full scale of that in our latest whitepaper to be released soon. The distribution and ecology of the token is DAO community focused where we believe our token should be as decentralized as much as possible. And in order to do so, we have allocated more than 35% of our tokens that is available for the community by taking part in multiple events.
MaticNews: Furthermore, how is the revenue being generated for the project itself which can be used to finance future developments?
MetaClash: Currently most of our game dev funding is from private seed rounds, as for the revenue model, it will be the same as for most games - in order to get ahead and win more battles, upgrades on equipment and in-game assets are needed to let's say, improve your DAD (digital avatar of destruction) skin, better firepower and so on. Of course, NFT sale is also part of the revenue, and in the future, we will have a cut on the transaction in the game for the NFT part trades.
MaticNews: Talking about the security side, the clichè question that we ask in all AMAs, are there any KYC or audit planned of your whole ecosystem?
MetaClash: We already did our KYC and audit of our ecosystem with Certik: https://www.certik.com/projects/metaclash?utm_source=SkyEmblem&utm_campaign=metaclash&utm_medium=hover#audit, with the badge already placed in our website. This is for both smart contract audits and team KYC.
MaticNews: Who are the current partners and the marketing strategy to have a good amount of users at the launch of the ecosystem?
MetaClash: We currently partnered with some INOs for the NFT launch, and being our GO-TO market is in SEA, we are very actively participating in multiple events to generate awareness of our game, and a weekly schedule of multiple AMAs for community exposure. As the latest Marketing effort, we are actually going to be a part of the PHILIPPINE WEB 3 SUMMIT happening this November 14-18, as a gold sponsor, and are expected to receive thousands of visitors in our booth!
If you are in PHILIPPINES, you can get 20% OFF the Philippine web3 summit event by using the promo code METACLASH upon checkout.
MaticNews: Talking about the future, as recap, do you have any preliminary roadmap that you would like to share with us?
MetaClash: So far we are on PHASE 2 of our timeline, which involves the:
Closed alpha testing
Updated Website launch
The Garage & NFT utility reveal
Genesis D.A.D. NFTs sale
Followed by PHASE 3 which is:
Genesis NFT staking
Exclusive clubhouse for genesis NFT holders
Limited access to closed Beta testing
For more info of our roadmap, you can see it at metaclash.online !
MaticNews: Last, but not least, what do you think about the current market moment?
MetaClash: We are currently in a bear market, although we have not reached the bottom yet, looking at the economic conditions around the globe and high inflation rates, it seems understandable that the crypto market is also affected HOWEVER we are still very crypto-positive! and we believe the game itself should be fun enough to survive through this, as we wanna make it as entertaining as possible, bear or bull market.
MaticNews: Thank you for joining us in this AMA!
MetaClash: Thank you for having us, this was great!
