A Proposal: The Spidertank Project (Working Name)
At Gala Games, we are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible with blockchain gaming. We noticed that there wasn’t a high-quality MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena)/Brawler available for the blockchain space, and were therefore delighted when we learned that the Spidertank Project from Gamedia, an AWESOME award-winning developer was coming to the blockchain space. Is anyone ready for mass adoption?
In pursuit of awesomeness, we would like to submit the following proposal to the Gala Games Node Ecosystem for approval.
Project Name: The Spidertank Project (working name, but the community will choose the final name)
Game Developer: Gamedia (https://www.gamedia.nl/en/) led by Dittmar Tukker (https://www.linkedin.com/in/dittmar/)
Genre: Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) / Brawler
Node Drop Mechanism: Up to 8.5% of all NFTs/Tokens Dropped to Node Operators based on the number of nodes online (More Nodes = Heavier Drops)
Final Release Date: Estimated to be Q4–2021
The Brawler is one of the best genres for esports arena play, and games like DOTA and League of Legends have defined the space … until today!
Gala Games is happy to announce that Gamedia is interested in bringing a game to the Gala Games Ecosystem! The game is designed as a 3v3 Brawler/MOBA, which allows players to pick and choose between a number of “Spider Tanks” and armaments, then battle it out on a series of maps. As a free-to-play game with play-to-earn mechanics centering around skill-based competition, resource collection, and a player-driven upgrade cycle, The Spidertank Project will redefine gaming. Whether you want to play with a small group of your friends or in a high-stakes competition, this game is going to knock your socks off.
The NFT strategy for this game will center around tanks, weapons, buildings, and ownable land, upon which workshops and resource mines can be placed. These workshops can be used to upgrade tank bodies and armaments with resources collected via play. The land, workshops, and resource mines can also be improved, but only generate resources when actively in play. Some resources such as land, which will have a tightly constrained emission schedule based on player numbers, will be available only via purchase, but other NFTs such as tank bodies and armaments will be upgradable on a play-to-earn basis. Some NFTs, such as certain tank bodies, armaments, skins, etc. will only be available for purchase through the Gala Games store.
The Node Reward distribution model will be based on a sliding scale, meaning that the more nodes are online, the larger each node’s share of the overall distribution will be. This was created to address the perverse incentive of node owners not wanting more nodes online as they feel it would dilute their rewards.
Node Operators will also receive a drop of the native token for The Spidertank Project (currently conceptualized as TANK) on a distribution schedule which starts at .5% of total daily drop and continues up to 8.5%, based on the number of nodes online. This drop will start several weeks after an approval vote as part of the integration process with the Gala Games ecosystem.
There will also be a pool set aside for the future development of game specific nodes, though this will in no way impact the Founder’s Node reward pool in a negative way.
Lastly, as the name has not yet been chosen, Gamedia has decided to enlist the help of the Gala Games Community to help choose the best name. There will be a naming contest with a reward for the winner that chooses the name of the MOBA that is going to change blockchain gaming forever!
A Note from Gala Games: The Spidertank Project is one which we are VERY excited about! Internally, we have been play testing it with Dittmar’s team for the last several months and BitBender has had to physically restrain Eric from posting leaks to the Gala Gold chat. It is AMAZING, and we are confident that you will love it. We believe that this project has the potential to be a contender for the next major esports phenomenon and can easily climb up to stand beside the best non-blockchain games and attract millions of players.
Get your questions ready, because BitBender is going to be hosting an AMA with Dittmar Tukker on Monday, July 12th at 08:00 PT (15:00 UTC).
