    LOK AMA #1

    Ask Me Anything session on Nov 17th 2021 AMA#1: November 17 2021Join the LEAGUE OF KINGDOMS Discord Server! Hello! Dear Kings, Queens, Landlords, @everyone Thank you for joining our AMA session. There were close to 100 people joined real-time at the peak, and I’m grateful for your support and enthusiasm. I hope this AMA session has answered some of your questions. We will be releasing more information in the future, and more AMAs will come as well. Here are the answers to the questions we got!! 🪙 Questions regarding $LOKA:1/Will $LOKA add a P2E mechanism to the game? How will the community rewarded? (by PeniazeInternetu @PeniazeWebu) → $LOKA is a governance token issued by TPA Metaverse foundation and will be adopted into League of Kingdoms universe. It won’t directly represent the P2E mechanism. $SOD will do it. Gamers will be rewarded with the tokens for playing the game. 2/Could it be that $LOKA is a type of coin that uses the ETH networK? Any ideas on multichain possibilities? (by [GRDI] °SpongeBob°, JKLGamer, Lange) → The bottomline is that $LOKA will be on Ethereum, but we have plans to leverage other scaling solutions to make the $LOKA transaction more smooth and convenient. 3/Will you have an in game marketplace? (by Cho) → Yes- we will have an in-game marketplace by early next year. 4/Will you sell more lands in the future? (by Cho) → Yes- we will have land sales next year. The schedule is to be determined. 5/What will be the total supply of $LOKA (by Cpt.Obvious) → 500,000,000 6/Do you plan on expanding your Dev team and allocating capital to improve the game? (by 10KoranG ) → Yes, we will leverage our private and public funding to scale our dev team and community/marketing efforts. 7/Do you plan on having a private sale? (by 10KoranG) → We already had a successful private sale raised from world-class investors which will be announced in detail in a few days. 8/How to buy / earn $LOKA (by qonemen ) → A small portion of $LOKA will first be sold through a public sale and then distributed through P2E game bounty, staking rewards, ecosystem rewards, etc.. 9/Will there be any events in-game to reward free 2 play (f2p) players with tokens? like in CvC for example? (by Cobra) → That is completely possible and we have a token pool specifically for that. The game issuance will be distributed as a prize for the events and competitions, like CvC. (But you must still have a wallet and fund the transaction😅) 10/When Skin NFT? (by Cobra) → New Skin NFTs will be minted in the future. These limited quantity NFTs are different from current skins in circulation and will come with innovative features. More details will be announced in the future. 11/Will there be a treasury and staking? (by CrypticOne) → There will be a treasury vault to capture values across the platform and staking rewards to reward token stakers. 12/Will landowners earn $LOKA instead of current DAI reward? (by JKLGamer) → That is correct. 13/Will active players earn SOD from daily quests just like SLP in Axie Infinity? (by JKLGamer) → More details regarding SOD will be announced in the future. 14/Is there a whitepaper for the $LOKA token? (by UserOne) → A litepaper is currently being drafted to be published in a few days. 15/What are the planned use-case scenarios of the LOKA token? (by UserOne) → The primary use cases are to vote, upgrade NFTs, stake for yields, and make purchases. But the utility is not exhaustive. 16/How long do you expect the LOK project to last (by UserOne) → We expect the project to last decades through decentralized governance. As a baseline, the token will be fully vested in 5 years and the game will gradually transition into DAO and be governed and maintained by the community. https://medium.com/media/fbb10a9b5821575390ff754663628f82/href🎮 Questions regarding the current & future of the League of Kingdoms gameplay:1/When will devs fix the lag (by KnightsNFury)🥺 → We have introduced an automatic system that adjusts the server capacity based on the stress level. We will have to see how well it performs on the next CvC, but we are really hoping that it solves the lag issue we had so far. 2/What is one of the bigger Game Features you can think we should be excited for next. (by Lange) → The new CvC. There will be a MAJOR UPDATE on CvC. It will be a month-long event, with 8 continents fighting together. There will be different zones you will have to conquer. These zones will be blocked from traveling at the beginning of the CvC, and the gates will open up progressively as the time passes. And there will be a new monster and events. We will be releasing more details in the near future. There are other projects still on the menu, such as the Monster Invasion event that we tease way too early. Btw, I can now confirm that C9–14 will be participating in the next CvC, which will probably be the last old-style CvC. There will be two sets of CvC going on together, one for C1–8, and the other for C9–14, so get yourself ready. In short, Next CvC (22nd Nov) = usual CvC we had. with C1–8 & C9–14Next next CvC (Dec) = the new updated CvC.3/Are we going to allow trade in of excessive treasury fragments for $LOKA, or will there be any other use? (by Eyebroo and many other users) → We do have some plans for the extra treasure pieces in the future. We are hoping to release something when the new CvC starts. 4/ How exactly does charms’ and boosts effect work? (by Past) → The following answer applies to both the charms and the item buffs. What’s important is whether the buff is on ‘when the action starts.’ If the buff was on when the action starts, the effect will last till the action finishes. For example, if you got the construction buff on, and then started constructing something, it will last for the entire duration of the construction. Same goes for the research, and killing the monster. So think of the duration of the charm as a window of opportunity to start that action. For the monster hunt, the action starts when the actual fight begins, not when the troops depart, so keep that in mind. The one exception is the gathering. For gathering, buff can go on and off in the middle of the process. As the gathering is very a bit too long, but not as long as constructions and all that, we made an exception for it. Hope this clarifies all the confusions. 5/ What are the exact mechanics of combat? What are the exact mechanics of hp/defense/attack when in combat? (by many users) → First off, the troop types. the infantry beats the archer, the archer beats the cavalry, and the cavalry beats the infantry. This is the basis of the troop type relationship, and the advanced research is there to strengthen the effects. For the HP/ defense / attack: bottom line is that you deduct the number comparing the attack and defense from the hp. There is an elaborate equation behind comparing the attack and defense, so it is not a straight simple deduction. For the buff and debuff to have the same type of effect, you just add up the buff and debuff and then apply the effect. For example, if you have +20% buff and -30% debuff, you will get a -10% debuff applied to your defense. Lastly, for the advanced research saying ‘XX effect on DEFENSE’ it will also apply when you are defending the citadel and the congress. 6/What kind of NFT is coming out in the future? (by Surffer) → There will be the “DRAGO” coming out as NFT. More details will be released in the future.

  2. $LOKA — WORLD PREMIERLeague of kingdoms Arena [🥁Drum roll. Incrementing sound that builds suspense.]Thanks for hanging in there~ Finally, what you’ve all been waiting for is coming!!🔥🔥[🥁Drum ends with the loud bang, and… the spotlight]🪙 THE TOKENSIf you’ve been following our medium blog post, you’ve probably expected it. This December, blockchain-based token economy will be introduced to the League of Kingdoms! It has always been in our mind, but our primary goal was to build fun game first; A game which thousands can simply indulge without any strings attached. Little more than a year since launch, we’ve accomplished some of our goal with 25K strong daily active players demonstrating benchmark crushing metrics. So, now is the time to embark on an adventure that we have long been dreaming of — Building a decentralized open gaming economy powered by native tokens! LOK DAUThe League of Kingdoms tokenomics will be built on the foundation of the dual-token model, powered by a governance token, $LOKA and a game-utility token, $SOD. The SOD is worth another dedicated blog post, so will keep it hidden for now. Now, meet our new governance tokens: LOKA!LOKA stands for the League of Kingdoms Arena. The LOKA (League of Kingdoms Arena) is a native governance token and its end goal is to fuel a player-owned governance system for the League of Kingdoms game metaverse. As a LOKA holder, you will be able to enjoy rights to propose, vote, stake for yield, and spend or use to upgrade your game NFTs (Spoiler alert!: a whole new NFT system is just around the corner🐲). The token will be used across the game and its supporting infrastructures that will be built out in the next few months. Its most foundational utility will be at its governance right to the game platform, which will be discussed in detail later. 📜 Litepaper is coming soon — check back here or the website in a few days!💡Learn more about our visionGOVERNANCE TOKENUTILITY TOKENSJOIN LOK COMMUNITY CHANNELS!🏰 Website: https://www.leagueofkingdoms.com ⛳️ LAND Portal: http://land.leagueofkingdoms.com 👾 Discord: https://dsc.gg/join.lok 👥 Telegram: https://t.me/LoK_global 🐦 Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeagueKingdoms 🎮 Play Game: App Store | Google Play | Web $LOKA — WORLD PREMIER was originally published in League of Kingdoms Official Blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

  3. Token for your voices in the ever decentralizing world Table of contentsWhat is a governance tokenAspects and risks of governance tokensGovernance token in the metaverse/gamesGovernance Tokens?Blockchain is a technology designed for a secure and transparent transaction between individuals. At the heart of its philosophy lies decentralization. If we can build a network that can be secure and transparent at the technological level, why would we need centralized middlemen? Therefore, blockchain projects innately have a drive for the decentralized autonomous world. When the world goes free of the centralized middlemen, the code and protocol will be the law. But the world will continue to evolve and also should the law to keep abreast of the changes. Thanks to blockchain technology, we can build a governance system that is decentralized, transparent, and autonomous. It is in its infancy and will rapidly evolve, but it is important to understand how it works for us to prepare for the decentralized future. This is why the governance token is a pinnacle of all blockchain-based tokens because it is a key to maintaining accountability amid being decentralized. Just like oil to the cogwheel, governance token will facilitate decentralized governance. In this article, we will discuss aspects that consist of decentralized governance, limitations or hardships in making one, its need, and, in the end, its use case in association with gaming. Aspects of the Governance System.Making a governance token and a decentralized governance system requires fine master craftsmanship for there are many aspects for the designer to consider. Though there are differences between each governance model, the governance procedure in blockchain networks roughly follows these steps. Submit proposalVotingEvaluate the proposalImplementation or rejection.The whole process should be autonomous. One thing you should understand is that there is no boilerplate that fits all. Blockchain governance can have various forms depending on the structure and purpose of the project. Therefore, in this article, we want to break down the structure of the governance procedure and talk about each aspect in general. The proposalIn order to start the voting procedure, there must be a proposal, and the quality of the proposal directly affects the quality of the project. We can say that the ability to propose is the cornerstone of decentralized governance. Submitting the proposal, the individuals are often rewarded in several forms. DFINITY, a project that connects computers globally through a distributed cloud service based on blockchain, has some interesting practices regarding proposals and submission fees. When submitting a proposal, the person can pay a submission fee, which in return will grant him more voting power depending on how much the one pays. Though there is raised eyebrow for it being a pay-to-win governance model, it is indeed an interesting way to reward the active participants. Some governments introduce the system to reward the person who submitted a proposal when the proposal is implemented to the system. This can also be another cool way to incentivize the proposers. Submission fees in DFINITY help maintain a higher quality of the proposals. The fee prevents the torrent of low-quality proposals, but it can also hinder active participation. It will be crucial to find the balance of fee that promotes high-quality proposals while defending against spam. 2. Voting system. Individuals can participate in the governance of a project through voting. No matter how good the proposals there are, without a well-designed, working voting system, it is impossible to maintain decentralized governance. Usually, the individual who owns the governance token earns the right to vote. Sometimes it is necessary to stake their token in exchange for the right to vote. Some projects have a delegation system to help individuals who want to participate in the governance but do not have time to study the proposals, similar to how the congress in real life works. Cosmos, a blockchain network that is designed to connect multiple blockchain networks, has validators and delegators in its governance. Delegators can lend tokens to a like-minded validator so that the validator can have more voting power. Delegates can withdraw their token at any time if the validators vote is not aligned with their interest. The topics that are being voted on can be varied. Some of the topics include, but are not limited to, usage of funds, changes to the governance model, changes to block size or gas prices, fixing bugs, UI changes or adding new content. 3. Evaluation and Rollback system The proposals should be evaluated before implementation. Both the problem and the solution that the proposal addresses should be backed by facts and data. This process can be cumbersome and time-consuming, thus the person who evaluates should be rewarded, possibly with tokens. However, even if the proposal went through evaluation, malign decisions are inevitable in the voting system. Sometimes malign actors can exploit the system by capitalizing when there are not enough active voters. Sometimes a proposal that is implemented can turn out to have an unforeseen negative outcome. And sometimes the project simply needs some changes or upgrades to avoid disaster. In such cases, the project must have levers to roll back and address the critical issue. What are the hardships in designing a governance system?The history of political philosophy shows how hard it is to design a governance model, and making it decentralized and autonomous ramps up more challenges. When the governance is live on the blockchain network and when everyone can see and access the governance, it will get much more difficult to change how the system works. Therefore, we should get it right in the first place. In order to do so, we should take into consideration the hardships in designing decentralized governance and implement systematic measures to prevent such problems. Keeping the participants motivated.Democratic governance requires the active participation of the members to more effectively reflect collective intelligence. However, as we can see in our real-life politics, it is not an easy task. Decentralized governance in blockchain projects faces the same obstacle. It can be even worse for there is no centralized authority to drive the members to participate. Therefore, ways to incentivize people’s participation should exist innately in the system. This is where the governance token shines. Not only can it reward the people participating in the voting procedure, but also the value of the governance token in the market can be a strong drive. As the value of the governance token is tied to the performance of the project, the voters have intrinsic motivation to make sure the project succeeds. Otherwise, the value of the token will fluctuate, which will hurt the token holders. It is on their hand to secure the value of the token, and therefore, they are encouraged to participate in the decision-making process. 2. The public is not always right. Winston Churchill once said that: “democracy is the worst form of government — except for all the others that have been tried.” It is very apparent that the melting pot of diverse thoughts and idiosyncrasies of the masses can unlock the power of collective intelligence, leading to brilliant ideas and projects. But we should never forget that humans are imperfect and often misbehave due to various reasons and influences, like lack of sufficient information, misinformation, groupthink, selfishness, populism, and filter bubbles, just to name a few. The reason why we have congressmen is that each individual cannot have such a level of proficiency, information, and awareness of the issues that arise in governance. The same can be applied to decentralized governance. As there is no centralized entity, individuals should make their own decisions, which can be a daunting challenge. In order to tackle the issue, DFINITY has an automatic voting system for each member, the ‘neurons’, to follow the choice of other neurons. A voter can decide whom his or her vote should follow, and can have different persons for each different category. Also, the members can immediately stop the support when the delegate’s decision does not align with their interests. Also, we should not forget the warning of Aristotle of demagogues instigating the public to put the benefit of some individual over the benefit of every member, the welfare of the society, and the prosperity of mankind. The goal of the decentralized governance procedure is to secure and improve the project, and thereby expand the benefits of all the participants, and not just to benefit a certain group of people. The thoughtful rules and regulations should be written on the blockchain as a smart contract, and they should be upheld in the decision-making process. 3. The whales and the trolls. One big issue in decentralized governance in blockchain networks is that it tends to grant higher voting power to the person who stakes more tokens. While it is a great way to incentivize to stake more, it can potentially bring consolidation of power in the decision-making process, which works in favor of the few whales over the general project. Ideally, the whales deserve their votes as they are the ones who have supported the project at an early stage against all the odds, but inequality is the last thing we would want to see in decentralized governance. Another problem is with the trolls. Democratic governance assumes that every individual is rational, but it is not the case in real life. There are people who make irrational decisions for the sake of fun or any other aberrations. These actors, whether deliberately or not, can drive a project wayward. Incentivizing the voters, rigorous evaluation, and putting an effective and transparent roll-back system in place should be required to prevent such bad actors. Then again, why do we need governance tokens?Governance tokens are required to run the increasingly decentralized world. It accelerates the adoption of new participants and empowers the participants in the decision-making process by effectively incentivizing the active participants. It also creates a feedback loop that can be self-reinforced, adding value to the project. So, the effective governance system of and in itself can give a competitive edge to a project over another, and people would want to invest in a project with one. Traditional financiers are increasingly drawn to the ESG compliant businesses, the same goes for crypto. While blockchain technology is like a brick that underpins decentralized governance, the governance tokens are the glue that holds the systems together to work, and it is a key to attract more people into the project.Governance in gaming and metaverse.How does governance token relate to the games and metaverse? The gaming community has always been vibrant with thousands of gamers who spend as much, or even more, time on the gaming community as on the game itself. When people gather around, it creates social order and the need for governance. Especially in MMO, there has been and always will be the endemic need for governance, and as we have discussed earlier, the governance token can be the key to form decentralized governance. At the initial stage, the governance token will work as a beacon to attract players who are eager to participate. However, it is almost impossible to reach a fully autonomous level of governance at the early stage, especially for the games. Game development is such an unpleasantly sophisticated practice that is challenging but unappreciated. It involves such a complex layer and components, such as different development layers, arts, game design, economy design, customer services, and bug reports, and etc. So, it would be unrealistic to transfer the steering wheel to the participants immediately. This is why it is hard to find a blockchain game that has fully decentralized autonomous governance. Still, at the end of the day, the ultimate goal is to transfer the decision-making process from the company to the players. So, why would gamers want decentralized governance? First of all, governance tokens will be a glue to connect the game developers and the gamers and their communities to work seamlessly and grow together. The token’s value is tied to the performance of the game, and therefore the token holders (both developers and the gamers) have the aligned interests to cooperate to make the game better. It will create a positive synergy between the two parties, which only had a unilateral relationship for decades. Moreover, decentralized governance provides gamers a means to participate in game development. While the gamers and their community have grown so much influence in the game industry, they failed to get their voices heard. A lot of gamers get frustrated when game companies fail to communicate with them and leave. When the decentralized governance model takes root, it will become an arena for the gamers to finally voice their proposals and participate in decisions regarding the game that they love. Governance feature in the League of KingdomsFinal thoughts.Decentralized Governance has been one of the crucial elements of blockchain technology. However, just like any other political structure, it is not an easy task to build one, especially when its goal is to make it decentralized and autonomous. Nevertheless, there are so many potentials in decentralized governance and the governance token. Though at such an early stage, the game industry is moving towards decentralized governance, and it will transform the whole interaction between the developers and gamers. And we believe that the relationship we will see in the future will be a positive one.

  4. Token that fuels the Play&Earn economy TL;DR OverviewFor this blog, we argue the need for blockchain-based digital tokens in games. We will discuss transformation into digital economy and metaverse from demand and supply side as a backdrop, define digital tokens, explain the need for utility tokens in games, and deep dive into utility tokens, their utility, values, and potential pitfalls. Table of contentDemand side — naturalized to MetaverseSupply-side — Digital products democratizedA neglected areaThe Solution: TokenTypes of tokensUtility Token (ft. EVE online)Demand side — naturalized to MetaverseOver time, gaming has evolved from packaged cartridges for Nintendo to mobile games where multiple users spend hours in a shared virtual space. Nowadays, people call this shared space a ‘Metaverse’, but, in the game industry, it has always been there in the name of ‘Massively Multiplayer Online Game’ or MMOs. In this MMO world, social clubs, markets, and economies have formed and prospered, at least more than a decade prior to the dawn of the Metaverse. Thousands of forums and communities on Reddit, Facebook, and Discord, filled with enthusiasts who like to talk 24/7 about matters exclusive to the games. Furthermore, the game item marketplaces like Steam’s Community market booms with millions who like to have their hands on the latest swords and armors. According to DMarket, a skin trading platform estimates the skin market is $40 billion a year. We may call these phenomena a fad and participants weirdos. But, there are clear signs that this is quickly seeping into our lives. We are often surprised by how much money and time we spend on digital spaces. For instance, you are likely to be subscribed to at least a few of the digital native services like Netflix, YouTube premium, Slack, Spotify, etc.. We are getting more accustomed to paying more for these services. Interestingly, most if not all of the values created in these platforms are intangible. They never touch the physical surface of the earth but these subscriptions all cost more than a physical Costco membership card which costs 60 bucks a year. The rise of digital consumers has only accelerated over the COVID Pandemic. Locked out in spaces only connected digitally, we’ve all failed to resist paying for digital services. We are practically living in the metaverse, and the boundary between the virtual and the real world is blurring. Using virtual and augmented reality, avatars, and lifelike computer imagery, the digital sphere will further erase the boundaries between people’s online and physical lives. Thus, the rapidly growing digital economy and its importance in our lives feel only natural. Supply side — Digital products democratizedAs digital transformation expedites, the public becomes increasingly more adept at using powerful tools and skills to build digital products themselves. For a long time, these grassroots digital productions suffered a lack of access to the market. But, today in many digital verticals, we are witnessing a change. Diversified supply channels with low or no barriers emerged for creators to easily find their patrons. A good example would be YouTube. Many talented video creators broadcast their video content and reach millions of audiences without the help of mainstream media channels. A similar trend applies to other digital media products. For example, you can draw a cartoon and publish it via Naver Webtoon, the world’s largest webtoon publisher, to monetize. Some of the hottest webtoon artists and YouTubers are raking in millions. Likewise, web novels, community moderation, or any other digitally-oriented works have their markets now. A neglected areaHowever, there is a neglected vertical where the users’ time and efforts are not as appreciated as in other products: Gaming. Gaming is one of the largest digital sectors and where millions of people actively invest their time and money. For the entire decade, gaming generated more revenue ($180 BN in 2020) than the movie and music industry combined. Also, gamers spent longer time than any other digital activity. e.g. average gamers spent 12 hours weekly playing and watching games last year, according to limelight network, a research firm. Considering additional hours gamers spend in game communities in likes of Discord, it would easily make a single most time-invested digital activity. Despite its prominence, the game industry maintained a strictly unilateral relationship where developers supplying content and gamers buying them. Much of gamers’ time and investments were barred from turning into a value. Ever growing influence of gamers in the game industryUser-generated gaming is still in its infancy and there are still barriers. It would be mere a pipe-dream to expect general gamers to start publishing homemade MMO games, as creators do with YouTube, Webtoon, etc. But we cannot deny the contribution of gamers to the game industry’s stellar success. Even though the upstream development is still at the developers' dish, the downstream rely heavily on users’ contributions. Most of the hit game titles today are MMOs. Thus, it is not just the game content and its design that attracts millions of gamers, but the social networks therein. Imagine Facebook without friends, Twitter without retweets. Social graphs are existential parts of digital life and gaming is no exception. It is the community and social inclusion that makes playing games so tantalizing and you open your wallet for that shiny skin to show off to peers around you. Most gaming business models are built on these communities. Even though gamers cannot build a Fortnite or PUBG themselves, Epic games and Krafton would not have survived without these gamers’ social activities downstream. Gamers deserve rewards. Discord serves one of the most popular game communitiesThe Solution: TokenHow can we effectively reward gamers’ value additive activities?That’s where tokenomics comes in. Introducing tokens in games will be an effective way to reward gamers. Tokens can be a badge for achievement, medium of exchange, or proof of membership, and the contribution of the gamers to the game can be quantified as and rewarded by the tokens. Minted on the blockchain, the tokens will be powerfully portable, tradeable, and verifiable without intermediaries. This is why we are seeing numerous attempts by game developers to integrate the token economy within their games. But, it will be crucial for the game developers to design a robust and sustainable token economy for the tokens to remain attractive. The history of tokenomics on the blockchain may be short but has been abounding with innovative approaches. Types of tokensBlockchain-based tokens can be either non-fungible or fungible. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are unique codes stored on the blockchain, which make them verifiably rare. On the other hand, fungible tokens are identical in shape and value, so they can be exchanged for one another, like the dollar bills we use to shop. NFTs are a separate topic worth a lengthy discussion, so we will focus on the fungible tokens for now. Every token carries different utilities. But we think there are three types of tokens: security, governance, and utility. Security tokens: A tokenized form of traditional securities that have underlying financial assets but with much-enhanced portability, security, and transparency leveraging blockchain technology.Governance tokens: Token that grants its holders various rights. Most typical rights include voting and many token holders on the major PoS blockchains are actively involved in such voting.Utility tokens: Tokens that deliver straightforward benefits in the platforms or products (applications). The best example would be in-game currencies which are used to purchase skins, items, and packages.The security and governance tokens are addressing financial issues, while the utility token enhances convenience in a particular digital economy. For this blog, we want to dive deeply into the utility tokens, especially in line with gaming. What is Utility Token & Why do we need them in games?The utility token seems similar to the cash currencies, which can be obtained by paying real money. The dual economy of in-game currency and cash currency is not a new thing in games. The in-game currency is used in many activities inside the game, while cash currency is used for more premium content, such as skins, boosters, subscriptions, and so on. Often this dual economy is not interconnected. Most games let you buy in-game currency with cash currency, but not the other way around. In EVE Online, a SiFi spaceship MMORPG famously known for its realistic in-game economy, PLEX (a premium currency that you can buy with real money) is exchangeable with ISK (the in-game currency) and vice versa, but you cannot turn PLEX into real money. In either case, there is a separation of real and the in-game economy. The utility token, on the other hand, connects the two economies, unlike the cash currencies currently used in games. The utility token produced by in-game activity can be traded like a real asset in the digital market, and the utility token bought in the market can be used in-game to facilitate more in-game activities. It creates an economic loop that runs through both the real economy and the in-game economy. As discussed earlier, the distinction between real and digital space and the economic activities between them is getting more blurry. The utility token can be a key for the game industry to join the trend. Finally, with the introduction of the utility token, the value produced by the gamers in the digital space can now be recognized in the real world. Axie Infinity, one of the fastest-growing blockchain games in the market, is proving to the world how the activity inside the game can grow, even to a level where it can sustain people’s real life. Furthermore, this decentralized monetization can draw more players into the game, expanding the community and the market further through the viral loop, word-of-mouth, or any other community-driven initiatives. All of which will add more value to the game. How blockchain adds value to the utility tokensUnlike the conventional in-game currency, utility token has one big, and obvious, difference: it operates on the blockchain. Blockchain is a decentralized network of machines that provide a high level of security, transparency, and hosts trustless transactions. The main role of the utility token is to bridge the in-game economy with the real one. And the fact that it operates on the blockchain provides a huge advantage in terms of security. When thinking of exchanging the conventional in-game currency or item with real money, the worry of getting scammed has always prevailed. However, in the blockchain network, the actual value transfer is transparently and verifiably recorded on the block, so that no one can forge or temper it. Additionally, transactions will be processed autonomously through a smart contract, which means that it is free of unnecessary fee-hungry intermediaries. Theoretically, there is no room for scams and only peace of mind, transacting utility tokens. What will be the potential problems of using the utility token?We now understand why we need the utility token and all the silver lining around it. But, what will be the downside of it? What kind of problems would occur when the utility token is implemented in your game, and what will be the solutions thereof? The issue with the utility token is closely related to the ‘Play to Earn’ aspect of the game. When the game has a strong drive for ‘Play to Earn’, it can divide the players into two groups: those who play to earn, and those who play for fun. The ‘Play for Fun’ players are what we are used to seeing, but the ‘Play to Earn’ players bring a whole new equation to the table. In the conventional game economy, the players demand the resources, and the developer supplies them. Developers can actively regulate the supply of resources is somewhat vague ways by monitoring the player's activities.In the ‘Play to Earn’ game economy, usually the ‘Play to Earn’ players supply resources, while ‘Play for Fun’ players demand them. As the players take both roles of supplier and customers, it is difficult for the developers to intervene when the prices are fluctuating. (Lassiez Faire!)Moreover, when the game contents reach maturity, and there is no content to burn the resources for, the decrease in resource demand can drastically decrease the price, which can lead the ‘Play to Earn’ players to leave the game.Labor migration can also be an issue. The ‘Play to Earn’ players who don’t have loyalty to the game, can easily pack up and leave to find a more profitable game.Lastly, the game should be fun even to the ‘Play to Earn’ players. Again, EVE online can give us some insight into this issue. EVE Online is a free-to-play game, but players can buy the 30 days premium subscription with PLEX. Technically, players can enjoy the free subscription by farming ISK and converting it into PLEX. But for some people, this farming can be boring, and they must spend their precious time on boring farming rather than into much more interesting content. Now, EVE Online prohibits buying real money with PLEX, which means that they don’t have a ‘Play to Earn’ economy anymore. Nevertheless, the statement stays the same. Those who are farming for ‘Play to Earn’ should still have fun while doing so. Otherwise, it is hard to maintain the loyalty of the ‘Play to Earn’ players, who are an essential part of the game economy.Tackling these problems, developers should keep two things in their minds.The game should have an economy with long-term sustainabilityThe game should be fun and have contents of great quality to retain.Long-term sustainability has been an issue with Axie Infinity. Currently, the ever-increasing new players fill the demand of the Axis, the in-game NFT pets that you use to play the game, and the ‘Play to Earn’ is relying on that demand. Against the speculation of a future decrease in new player demand and content maturity, which might lead to a decrease in demand of Axie, SkyMavis posted roadmaps introducing new utility to their Land NFTs, Soulbound Axies, and such to provide a vision for the long-term sustainability of the game. Also, Having a loyal player base is essential in securing a stable in-game economy. The entertaining game content with great quality will be a great drive for players to stay with the game and to build loyal communities. At the end of the day, if the boundary between the ‘Play to Earn’ and ‘Play for Fun’ players is blurred, and all the players are playing the game for both earning and entertainment, it would be optimal. And these are the challenges for the game developers facing the rise of the digital economy and blockchain gaming. They should not just implement the blockchain network in a preexisting system, but should deeply consider the impact of the new game economy, and develop a structure that can sustain such a sophisticatedly interconnected relationship between the in-game and real economy, and, by doing so, shall prove their value to the market.

  8. Change for the medals that signify the victor’s glory BACKDROPThe current victor’s medal was first introduced at the first siege of shrine event back in August 2020, when the game was just a month old. The medals were given as a bonus to incentivize participation in the siege. But as more continents are added, the medal supply has spiked and subsequently flooded, leading to abuses, disruption of the economy, and imbalance. Abuses: excessive multi-accounts distributing medals between his/her accounts or/and lands across multiple continents.Economic impact: As competition in each continent tend to wind down after 2–3 months, most of the bi-weekly medals from the shrines thereafter increasingly became complementary (free and easy) perks to the current holders, which can widen the income gap between old vs. newer landlords who have no mean to acquire the medals in mass. This has severely discouraged regular land development activities (daily gathering, monster hunting, etc) as those activities can easily be eclipsed by biweekly logins to convert these free medals into land development.Imbalance: As the continent matures, older continent constituents find the lesser drive to compete for congress. Given the diminishing interest in intra-continental competition, kingdoms in the old established continents can reinvest all their medals (often obtained without single combat) for their power building which newer continents cannot afford. (in most cases, the newer continents still compete for congress and their medals are mostly used toward rebuilding the losses) This unfair advantage is severely widening the power gap between the continents.To tackle the aforementioned issue which will only aggravate with more new continents opening, we’ve decided to revamp the new medal supply model as illustrated below. VICTOR’S MEDAL SUPPLY MODEL v2.0The new medal supply model will consist of three parts. Baseline supplyCvC victory rewardsBonus supply (TBD)A victor’s medal1.Baseline supplyWe will implement a gradually diminishing supply curve, starting with a higher than status quo (3M total) of 4M medal supply for the first Siege of Shrine event until it reached the plateau of 1.6 M medals. With the implementation of a new supply model with a higher early supply with a contraction schedule, the per capita medal limits will also be shrunk from the current 50,000x down to 40,000x medals. Please note that this simulation is for the sum of medals at stake for the 1st taking of A. B, C shrines. The shrine opening sequence, in reality, will delay the actual medal supply for higher-level shrines.This gets a bit complicated as the opening of each leveled shrine has an opening sequence (i.e. C → B →A). Therefore, the offering of the initial medal supply (diminishing supply thereafter) will begin with the first event in which unlocking the shrine becomes possible. So, the inaugural siege event will supply the sum of the first C shrine medal quantity. The second siege event will supply the B shrine medal portion regardless of the unlocking of B shrines for that event. This trend will apply the same to the A shrines as well. With this logic in place, each shrine will reach the plateau at a different stage, which is to provide equal medal earning opportunity for each tier of shrines despite the opening sequence. Please see the actual medal supply schedule for each event. Total medal supply to each event, broken down to each shrine levelsThe total medal supply will then be divided evenly across the same leveled shrines. For example, the first-ever shrine event will supply 1.6M medals across 20 C shrines, therefore 80,000 pretax medals will be available on each C shrine. Congress will levy taxes on the abovementioned victor’s medal supply. ⚠️This new medal supply schedule will be applied retroactively. The medals supplied to the old continents will be curtailed to the baseline level for each shrine based on the curve.2.CvC Victory rewardsThis is a new addition to the medal supply model. Based on the CvC continental rankings, a pool of victor’s medals will be distributed. For the inaugural CvC season 1, the medal supply will be distributed as follows: 1st (Winner): 800,0002nd (Runner up): 400,0003rd: 200,0004th: 100,000These CvC medal rewards will then be added to each shrine’s medal pool based on the below percentage. A Shrines: 24% (4x Shrines)B Shrines: 36% (12x shrines)C Shrines: 40% (20x shrines)The Congress: Takes tax rate% of provided medalsThe first CvC medal rewards are added to the shrine/congress medal pool for the grab in the upcoming Siege of shrine event. 3. Bonus Supply (TBD)There will be additional medals that will be introduced in the future, with the launch of the intercontinental roundtable (a type of DAO underpinning the LoK operation, More details are TBD) These special medal pools will be offered to enhance and activate the community-driven governance of the LoK game economy, with the possible introduction of governance/utility tokens (TBD). 👉Subscribe to the King’s telegraph newsletter to never miss out on fresh news from the League of Kingdoms continents: https://leagueofkingdoms.substack.com/ JOIN LOK COMMUNITY CHANNELS!🏰 Website: https://www.leagueofkingdoms.com ⛳️ LAND Portal: http://land.leagueofkingdoms.com 👾 Discord: https://discord.gg/t22KuEB 👥 Telegram: https://t.me/LoK_global 🐦 Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeagueKingdoms 🎮 Play Game: App Store | Google Play | Web VICTOR’S MEDAL REVAMP was originally published in League of Kingdoms Official Blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

  10. The sly and devilish creature that disrupt the order TABLE OF CONTENTSTreasure goblinsGold dragonsTREASURE GOBLINSThis nimble and devilish creature resided in the continents for eons of time, mostly under the shadow. They like to sneak around and cut pockets of traveling caravans for anything shiny, which gave them the alias of ‘Treasure goblin’. During the ancient heroic crusade to take the congress, some of the precious gold dragon eggs were smuggled by a band of goblins while the knights were asleep in the night. The knights decamped not even noticing the steal. Ancient lords and kings in the congress have hired mercenaries to chase down these wicked creatures and take back the treasures. Are you ready for the goblin hunt tonight? GOLD DRAGON EGGAccording to the ancient chronicles, kingdoms united to slay the legendary mad dragon, Magdar also known as ‘The Death wing’. This destructive creature was so powerful and mighty, devouring entire villages with eternal flames and massacring innocent peasants… Countless knights and warriors were sacrificed, protecting the realm. The clash between the dragon and mankind continued for decades until the weary Magdar overwhelmed his surrounding with massive flames and flown over the bloody battlefield past the abyss created by the divine war god, Kratos. Left helpless, after the simmering war cloud, warriors found three types of eggs sitting in the ground: Green, Red, and Gold dragon eggs. Green, Red, and Gold dragon eggsThese eggs are thought to be the offsprings and the keys to bringing the Magdar back into the continents when all three eggs are collected. The dragon soul‘The dragon soul’ is an epic ring that can only be acquired through slaying the gold dragon, which is known to be hatched from the stolen gold dragon eggs. This treasure massively boost troops’ speed and attack abilities, as well as the ‘HP boost skill’ to buff your troops’ HP. Only the most powerful lord will possess the ring.

    LORD SYSTEM

    Start raising your commander in chief! TABLE OF CONTENTSLord SystemMastery SystemTHE LORD SYSTEMEach kingdom needs its own leader. If history is any guide, the leadership always made or broke the fate of the kingdoms. Now, you can add your own unique characteristics to your kingdom by raising your Lords. How do we raise the lord?Lords are just like your character in the RPG game. They can acquire XPs in order to level up. The Lord XP bar is located in the profile section of your kingdom. How do we get the XPs?Lords can be leveled by acquiring experience (XP) points in two ways: Monster hunting or XP potions. You can either add the XP points by hunting monsters or purchase the XP potions straight from the store as can be shown below. Either monster hunt or XP portionMASTERY SYSTEMOnce you level up your Lord’s level, your lords can learn new masteries by using the mastery points. The masteries are like skill-trees in RPG games. There are 6 masteries you can choose to train your lord, which are: Infantry, Archery, Cavalry, Monster, Combat & Governor. Infantry: this mastery track includes various infantry-related masteries and skillsets. They are powerful ways to reinforce your infantry’s might.Archery: this mastery track includes various archer-related masteries and skillsets. They are powerful ways to strengthen your archer’s markemanships.Cavalry: this mastery track includes various horseman-related masteries and skillsets. They are powerful ways to boost your cavaliers’ capacity.Monster: this mastery track helps you lead your troops to successful monster hunting. With monster mastery, your troops will bring more lucrative loots from the monster hunting expeditions.Combat: this mastery track boosts your troops’ PvP abilities. This mastery can expand your march size or even give you a leg up in your attempt to invade and fight troops hiding behind the castle wall.Governing: this mastery helps your lord to become a wiser leader. A wise leader can lead the kingdom to be more productive and efficient on every front.Future plansMore special masteries will be addedMore special masteries around alliance will be added (TBD)Different ways to get mastery points will be added (TBD)JOIN LOK COMMUNITY CHANNELS!🏰 Website: https://www.leagueofkingdoms.com ⛳️ LAND Portal: http://land.leagueofkingdoms.com 👾 Discord: https://discord.gg/t22KuEB 👥 Telegram: https://t.me/LoK_global 🐦 Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeagueKingdoms 🎮 Play Game: App Store | Google Play | Web LORD SYSTEM was originally published in League of Kingdoms Official Blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

  14. Introducing a new partnership We are very excited to announce our partnership with Yield Guild Games (YGG), a brilliant project which intends to bring blockchain technology and gaming to the mass. You can find more detail about YGG below: Introducing Yield Guild Games INTROYield Guild Games is a play-to-earn gaming guild that seeks yield around the Metaverse. YGG gathers players around the world to form a guild that invests in NFTs of different blockchain games and earns yield for its players, turning them from gamers into investors. YGG already operates an active alliance, YGG0 in Continent 1, composed of passionate players from around the globe. This community-driven project intends to expand its exposure in the League of Kingdoms continents through qualifying for the new institutional investor batch purchase program to acquire a large number of Land parcels. YGG0 hive at Continent1The land parcels acquired by YGG are controlled by a multisig wallet composed of team and community members. In the near future, control of the wallet will be turned over to a DAO, letting the YGG Alliance members decide how to govern the land and the corresponding resource and DAI rewards it generates. More information about Yield Guild Games can be found on its blog and Discord server. INVESTMENTYield Guild Games has qualified for the recent institutional investment program and allocated to acquire 286 parcels of Land this week. These lands will be from the remaining unsold portions from the flash sale zoning. YGG, as an institutional investor, would take 286 parcels of Level 4 lands at the baseline prices of $79.99 which would be used toward scaling and enriching the League of Kingdoms ecosystem. This investment will further fuel the project’s marketing coverage expansion beyond its recent American and European region toward the APAC countries (Asia Pacific) where the majority of the YGG community is based and will continue to evangelize gamers to the world of blockchain gaming. All the proceeds from the investment along with that of the flash sale will be used toward stepping up the performance and influencer marketing efforts to acquire new mainstream gamers into playing League of Kingdoms.
