End of an Era: Eternal Dragons Shuts Down, Leaving Legacy and Lessons in Web3 Gaming

Goodbye to Eternal Dragons

Interestingly, the Eternal Dragons weren’t actually everlasting! Almost eighteen months after the initial alpha release, the team behind Eternal Dragons has declared the game's closure.

In the midst of mostly upbeat updates within the web3 gaming sector, we need to share a disappointing piece of news. It concerns Eternal Dragons, who are completely closing down their game. Development on Eternal Dragons has been halted, and soon, their servers, website, and Discord will also be shut down in the upcoming weeks.

Following a peak last year, a decline in player base and continuous financial issues have caused yet another game to abruptly stop. Although Eternal Dragons was innovative in its approach to integrate NFTs as a means of backing and sharing profits with professional players, it failed to garner sufficient interest to sustain its development.

For holders of Eternal Dragons NFTs, there's a bit of positive news. The team behind Eternal Dragons has announced a buyback program for Genesis Dragons and Eggs owned by users. This program will specifically target NFTs from the Genesis collection, as the option to hatch new eggs has been discontinued. The compensation offered is $30 USDC for each Egg and between $12 to $120 USDC for Dragons, depending on their rarity. Although this compensation might not fully cover the high costs that were initially paid by owners last year, it is nonetheless a better outcome than the typical scenario where owners are left with nothing when a game ceases operation.

Information regarding the methods and timing for trading these NFTs remains unclear. Stay tuned to the Eternal Dragons Twitter page for further news.

Closing Reflections

It might appear otherwise, but not everyone is destined to come out on top. Regrettably, Eternal Dragons falls into the category of those who didn't succeed. From my perspective, their game lacked thrill, but the innovative approach of their Player Cards catches the eye, possibly paving the way for future NFTs inspired by this concept.

These Player Cards served as an investment in individual professional players, enabling card owners to receive a share of the player's earnings from tournaments and other events. This method offers a financial support system for professional players and lets fans engage more actively in the experience, rather than merely observing from the sidelines.

However, Eternal Dragons appeared to lack innovation in their gameplay and in the integration of other NFTs, which resulted in a dwindling number of players and diminished attraction from new participants.

Eternal Dragons was an online game that combined automatic battle mechanics with blockchain technology, where players used teams of dragons to compete on a grid-based map. The initial alpha release of Eternal Dragons occurred in December 2022, incorporating non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that were based on the Solana blockchain.
