Is Heroes Of Mavia The BLOCKbuster We’ve Been Waiting On?
The Shot Heard Around The World Of Crypto Gaming
It seems like everyday shiny, new crypto gaming projects pop up with promises of blowing competitors out of the water. What if I told you that most of them have no chance? That’s right. Unfortunately, most of these projects that are moonlighting as the next coming won’t make it. However, if you’ve been in crypto for any amount of time, that should be an obvious – and maybe overstated – truth. With that being said, there are a few games that seem to be building with longevity in mind.
Whether or not they’ll last is still too early to determine. Nevertheless, they’re taking the necessary steps to inspire confidence within the hearts of their supporters. Recently, a game has hit the scene that has really piqued the team’s interest. The game that I’m referring to is Heroes Of Mavia. If you want to know what excites us about the potential of this game, imagine Clash Of Clans on the blockchain.
Now, you see where I’m going with this. So without further ado, let’s dive right into it.
In this article, it is more important than ever that I stress that this is not financial advice. Never ever throw your money into any investment without doing your own due diligence FIRST. We honor and respect our community members’ support. However, this is about sharing interesting projects…..nothing more, nothing less.
What Is Heroes Of Mavia?
Heroes Of Mavia is the self-proclaimed “first AAA Blockchain Base Builder.” This is a PVP strategy game where armies and bases serve as the assets players use to engage in battling other players for cryptocurrency.
In Heroes Of Mavia, players have the ability to:
Build and command their own base on the island of Mavia.
Use over twelve different types of vehicle, infantry, and air units to attack other players’ bases and loot resources – Gold, Oil, and Ruby (one of the in-game currencies).
Rent, purchase, and/or partner with landowners to build bases and earn rewards.
Livestream and replay battles.
Generate passive income and manage base battles.
The ultimate objective of the game is for players to use resources they’ve gained from attacking other bases to build their armies and grow their bases.
The difficulty level of the game increases as players develop their base and army. Also, defeating stronger players rewards higher yields.
The gameplay loop is simple, yet compelling enough to keep users engaged.
Build Base > Attack & Defend > Earn Ruby > Upgrade NFTs
Heroes Of Mavia uses a dual token model as well:
Players can earn RUBY in multiple ways:
Attacking another base.
Successfully defending their base (which doesn’t require a player to be online).
Completing daily challenges.
Removing obstacles from their base.
Winning wagered matches.
Once players acquire RUBY, it can be used to:
Upgrade heroes, statues, and bases.
Speed up various processes (training, construction, etc).
Purchase skins and decorations that add value to their NFTs.
The more RUBY players earn, the more they are also required to spend to continue upgrading their assets.
Here is a breakdown of the token dispersion:
Heroes Of Mavia NFTs
There are three different types of NFTs in HOM:
Players can own more than one base.
Bases can be rented out, resold, or placed into a partnership for a split of the earned RUBY.
Each base contains an HQ. This is where players will upgrade their NFTs. It is important to note that bases can only be upgraded with RUBY.
All upgrades are permanently attached to the base.
Statues boost process speed and efficiency of each base.
Only one variable can be boosted per statue. However, a player can own multiple statues.
Heroes are unique and can only be purchased with MAVIA tokens.
Attributes are upgraded using RUBY.
Skins can be purchased and enabled or disabled.
All NFTs are purchased through HOM’s custom built marketplace – The Mavia Marketplace. Players have the ability to:
View past NFT sales.
Find base partners.
Rent out bases for MAVIA tokens.
Buy and sell HOM NFTs.
The team behind HOM is Skrice Studios (founded in Q2 of 2021). The core team is made up of approx 10 people that are based in Hanoi, Vietnam.
The overall team is a global team of approx. 60+ members.
Though the studio has only been in existence for less than a year, the core team has decades of experience within the gaming industry.
The Executive Director – Yvan (Aiven) Feusi – has over 15 years of experience as a 3D artist.
The COO – Nam Trương Hải – has over 18 years of experience in the gaming industry.
The CTO – Nhan Cao – has approx 7 years of software development experience.
One thing that has thoroughly impressed me is that the team broadcasts the game development in their Discord (that currently has 61,897 members). That’s right! Supporters have the ability to watch the team build the game in real time.
Heroes Of Mavia has also partnered with some of the biggest companies and guilds in the crypto space.
Tharebear has once again joined me to deliver you all some great “off the record” alpha on HOM.
An important thing to take note of are the risks surrounding the project:
Current market conditions are uncertain.
The project is still in development.
However, there is a huge positive that offsets some of the risk:
HOM has a committed team that consistently ships features & puts players/investors first.
If anyone is interested in taking a look at HOM, here are a few other important details:
Land Whitelist & Public Mint (3k tokens) - Mid February Mint (Details Here)
Initial Mavia Token Offering - Date TBD (rumored Q2), Participation Details to come
Future Land Drops - Future land drops will come with content releases
Mavia Token Secondary Market** - The benefit to owning land early is unique NFTs using Mavia’s unique “soft staking” mechanism. Those who hold their land can earn exclusive NFTs to improve their bases, based on how long they are “soft staked”.
If land is unable to be secured during the drop, there is no need to worry. More land will be coming in the future.
Plus the hype is likely to subside between the initial launch and the game release. In theory, this can create an opportunity for speculators to gain exposure to tokens or land.
Well folks, there you have it. Hopefully, it isn’t hard to see why HOM is highly anticipated amongst the team.
I cannot definitively say that this game has a fail proof chance of conquering the industry. However, Heroes of Mavia seem to have all of the core ingredients of a successful game/company:
Proven and Active Team
Supportive and excited community
Solid Proposed Gameplay loop
With all of the pros listed, I will not be surprised to see Heroes Of Mavia shake up the crypto gaming industry and create a new standard. Looks like we may truly have a blockbuster on our hands.
Currently the team is in the process of distributing land to whitelisted supporters. This is a game that I’ll definitely be paying very close attention to.
Looking for to this one! Early Early days!
I appreciate the way land owners had to actually contribute, work or give some input for their land. It created dedicated owners that will diamond hand their assets.
I have my land and am looking forward to this game.
Thanks for the review!
