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

Goodbye to Eternal Dragons

Surprisingly, the Eternal Dragons have proven to be less everlasting than their name suggested. Nearly eighteen months after releasing their initial alpha version, the team behind Eternal Dragons has declared the closure of their game.

In another piece of news that stands out against the mostly uplifting updates from the web3 gaming sector, there's a sad development to share. Eternal Dragons is discontinuing their game completely. The development of Eternal Dragons has halted, with plans to shut down the servers, website, and Discord in the near future.

Following a successful previous year, a dwindling player base and continuous financial challenges have abruptly ended another video game's progress. Eternal Dragons, despite its innovative approach of integrating NFTs to benefit and share profits with professional players, failed to draw enough participants to sustain its development.

For holders of Eternal Dragons NFTs, there's a bit of positive news. The team behind Eternal Dragons has announced plans to repurchase Genesis Dragons and Eggs from users. This repurchase initiative will be limited to NFTs from the Genesis collection, as the option to hatch new eggs has been discontinued. The team is proposing to pay $30 USDC for each Egg, and between $12 to $120 USDC for Dragons, depending on their rarity. Although this offer might not fully compensate those who invested heavily last year, it is still a better outcome than the usual scenario where owners are left with nothing when a game ceases operations.

Information about the methods and timing for swapping these NFTs remains unclear. Stay tuned to the Eternal Dragons Twitter page for future announcements.

Concluding Remarks

It may appear otherwise, but not everyone is destined for success. Sadly, Eternal Dragons falls into the category of those who haven't succeeded. From my perspective, their game lacked excitement, although the idea of their Player Cards is quite intriguing and could pave the way for future NFTs that embrace this concept.

These Player Cards functioned like a financial stake in a specific professional gamer, enabling Card owners to receive a portion of the player's earnings from competitions and events. This method offers an effective funding source for professional gamers and lets supporters engage more directly, making them feel involved in the action rather than mere spectators.

However, Eternal Dragons appeared to lack innovation in their gameplay and in the integration of other NFTs, resulting in a dwindling number of players and diminishing appeal to new participants.

Eternal Dragons was an online game that integrated web3 technologies, focusing on automatic combat between dragon teams on a grid-based map. The alpha release of Eternal Dragons occurred in December 2022, and it incorporated NFTs that operated on the Solana blockchain.
