Heroes & Empires AMA recap
Good Day, Good Gamer!
Thank you everyone for participating in the recent AMA session. Here is a recap of some important information about this AMA.
During the AMA, 15 questions were chosen to interact with the Heroes & Empires gamer community. Let's see what the responses are like:
With so many Crypto-Games coming into the market, what would be this game's greatest edge to make new players download, play & enjoy Heroes & Empires?
We are on of the few project still survive and grow well at this time. Currently we are switching to free to play model to onboard more traditional players. Moreover, we are working on the second title, OverSpell which use the same NFT and token with HE.
Are you ever going to cross chain with another network other then Binance Smart Chain? Like cross chain with Polygon (Matic) for instance?
Yes and no, we discussed many other options (Solana,...) but in the end we built our own network (for many other projects) on top of a layer 1 network. At the same time, we and many other studios in Vietnam are constructing side chains/subnets in order to create a large community.
It appears GEMs will be coming to the game. Will GEMs completely replace HE or will they both exist in the game?
Both will coexist and support the game; we are about to launch a new system - this new feature to players, such as GEM, in-game MarketPlace,... you will experience in the next Testnet. If you want to summon heroes with GEM, you must wait 30 days to prevent the cheater from refunding on the store. You can earn GEM by completing quests, events, and daily quests... You can exchange HE for GEM but not GEM for HE.
Since the game name is Heroes & Empires, so far we've been playing the heroes in PvE and PvP mode. How will you integrate the "Empire" into the game? Any sneak peek?
"Empires" will be integrated into the "Land" feature, appearing as a Land NFT. Each stage in a chapter will be a land, and each land will provide you with approximately 5 benefits. Some benefits will continue to be active as long as you keep that NFT, while others will require you to capture that land. You can gain benefits by occupying other lands.
How exactly will the NFTs/Heroes will be used in OverSpell? How will the migration of NFTS and HE to the OverSpell works?
They are technically just the same NFTs. If you own NFTs of HE and use the same account/wallet to login to OverSpell, you will have those NFT in the game. There shouldn't be any migration.
What are the factors base to nerf/ buff a hero?
We rely on game data such as win rate, used times, and whether this player has an advantage in a specific game mode. Sometimes we only fix a bug with that hero, but it has an effect on hero statistics.
In the moment, the most of activities, mainly the new ones, are directed to big player and investor. Which is the possibility the team creates more activities to small investor, too? It could engage new players.
Normally, for this kind of game (Idle RPG), we should open a new server when a server reach to a specific number of players. So the new players don't have to fight with strong old players. But for NFT game, we only have 1 server since the player can bring their NFTs to the new server. We are trying to solve this problem by this approach open a new server for a new blockchain network.
Ex: A new server for Solana, new server for Avalanche. This requires a lot of resources but we are working Solana and Avalanche (and maybe other networks in the future). If we bring HE to new network, we will burn HE on BNB chain and mint the same amount on new network to keep the benefits for our holders.
HE will have some unique PvP features across networks: Ex: The players from BNB chain could fight with the players from Avalanche on Legend Tournaments or Grand Tournaments.
Another option is to disable mint for heroes summoned in game (not bought from a market) until higher chapters (like 20 or something like that), what do you think about that?
That what we will do. But we haven't confirmed which chapter.
What would be the most challenging case that Heroes & Empires has experienced up to this point and what are the actions you are planning or have executed to surpass this challenge?
Big challenge: twice
1. Cheater/farmer: limit device/daily quest (but many games are currently dead), it has improved the game's economy.
2. Game revenue: develop team, MarketPlace fee, game revenue, we bought it all back, monthly expenses... we need to turn a profit before the end of the year. That is why we developed free-to-play features.
Do you think that people one day will understand that to make NFT gaming possible its required for everyone to contribute and not only to milk money out of the game?
I believe that Web3 gaming will gradually shift toward entertainment-oriented gaming.
Are you going to keep developing updates/new game modes to Heroes & Empires or do you feel at some point the game will be complete and you will focus on another game?
For at least another two years, the HE roadmap is feature-rich. In addition, we add resources to other projects in the ecosystem, such as OverSpell.
I am a developer, can I make a game in parallel with your development and connect it to your ecosystem? For HE token rewards, will I need to buy tokens myself to distribute them for rewards, or is there some kind of pool or grants if the game meets any requirements? Also, how will it be possible to access your 3d character models?
We are not considering opening NFT and our tokens to other projects at this time because the HE project is still in its early stages.
We will open as the ecosystem is completed with new games, platforms, and private blockchains.
Can you talk a little bit about the change created by OverSky, a combination of IMBA Games and Crypto Viet?
Before, we are just 2 partners working on a project. After founding OverSky, there is only 1 delicated team fullly focus on HE.
What are the targets with partnerships such as MetaDOS, Rikkei Finance, are there any new partnerships ahead? What are our achievements, can you talk a little bit?
There are some partnerships on marketing but there are some important partnerships like with MetaDOS (we are building our own platform and blockchain with them, together with other 3 companies).
We will announce our biggest partnerships in this month :) You guys will like them.
Do you love your job?
Well yes. I had a very challenging period of time last few years. When we started I Am Hero, I used to think it's my last game project. Then the NFT wave came and bring me a lot of interesting knowledge and experience. HE team doesn't have the best team members but we are the strong team together. We have a lot of fun in the office, we just finished an in-house game contest. I still have lots of plans for HE and its ecosystem. Please continue to support me and my team.
