Why Esports is Important for Play-to-Earn Games?

When it comes to entertainment, video games are leading the industry by a long shot. It is by far the largest and most diversified in the entertainment sector. It amasses a whopping $145 billion in worth, and there is no sign of it stopping any time soon. Moreover, the integration of blockchain technology into games has opened up a new venue as well as new revenue streams for both gamers and developers in play-to-earn games. So, the evolution of video games over the years is still in progress, and we see the new generation of Web 3.0 games taking shape. However, this branch of gaming is still a toddler and faces a lot of challenges in establishing itself, as the traditional gaming industry did. 

The Gamefi, or play-to-earn, system has a lot of room for improvement, which we already discussed in our previous article. But today, we will highlight the importance of the sports element in gaming and how it can reap benefits for blockchain games.

The Esports Element in Video Games

In the 1980s, kids yearned for a new gift: video games. They left aside bicycles, footballs, crickets, and baseball bats and made video games their top priority. Since then, video games have ruled the hearts and minds of children as well as adults, and they continue to do so. However, the expansion did not stop there; new opportunities and business ideas paved the way for a new type of healthy competition among gamers in game play. Some referred to it as sports, while others referred to it as esports. The esports phenomenon sparked a surge in game popularity around the world. Worldwide esports competitions and tournaments are held with jaw-dropping pool prizes. Gamers around the world participate in these tournaments and create healthy fan bases for their teams as well as the games they play.

Traditional gaming has become more popular in the entertainment industry thanks to esports and tournaments. Esports also helped the gaming industry grow, opened up new business opportunities, and kept gaming at the top of the entertainment industry.

What is Esports?

Esports, also known as electronic sports, is a form of competitive video gaming that involves organized tournaments and competitions. Players or teams compete against each other in various video game titles, often for prize money and other rewards. Esports has grown in popularity in recent years and has become a professional career for many players. It is often played at a professional level in front of live audiences and is also often streamed online for viewers to watch. There are many different esports leagues and tournaments that take place all around the world.

Why Esports is Important for Play-to-Earn games or Gamefi?

Play-to-earn games are also known as Gamefi. It is because of this system that gamers are able to exchange their in-game digital assets or cryptocurrency for real-world currency. The blockchain gaming niche is still evolving and improving to make it big. The leaders in the industry and game developers are trying hard to come up with AAA titles and sustainable in-game economic systems to shift consumer preference and initiate mass adoption. Besides all the other important things like market distribution, infrastructure that is user-friendly, a talent pool, and a better economic model, it is also very important to organize tournaments. Esports will help blockchain games gain exposure, popularity, and mass adoption. It may as well educate the masses about the new play-and-earn business model.

Let’s have a look at the benefits of Esports inclusion and tournament organization for blockchain games.

Monetary Rewards and Prize Pools for Winners

The first and foremost benefit lies in the prize pool of esports tournaments. Skillful gamers can make a living out of playing their favorite blockchain games and winning crypto rewards. There are numerous Web 3.0 games that have the potential to host esports tournaments, such as  Spider Tanks, Champions Arena, and more.

The Urge to Compete and Make Some Name in Esports

Who doesn’t like healthy competition that pushes you to make your game more refined and top-notch? Also, if you win a tournament, you\’ll get a name for yourself, become popular, and have something to brag about. Esports tournaments will let gamers become experts in their games and get known all over the world. So, esports will make blockchain games more competitive and encourage people to play games as a career.

"Battle of Guardians": A PvP Fighting Blockchain NFT Game that Will Break the Fighting Game Genre

“Battle of Guardians”: A PvP Fighting Blockchain NFT Game that Will Break the Fighting Game Genre

Welcome to another game review where we take a closer look at one of the most promising blockchain games, Battle of Guardians. “Battle of Guardians” is a first-of-its-kind PvP real-time online multiplayer fighting game. The game also offers PvE, Esports, and fighting tournaments. Battle of Guardians is more of a skill-based game than a “play-to-earn” game. The game is highly competitive, and skilled players are always on the prowl to beat opponents and earn rewards. So, enjoy this next-gen blockchain multiplayer NFT game where you train, fight, and earn.

Battle of Guardians uses the Unreal Engine and is powered by Solana Network. This game is a treat for fighting genre gamers who play games like Tekken, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, and more. However, the catch here is that “Battle of Guardians” offers several rewards to its players that have real-world value. So, the grinding and practicing in Battle of Guardians are worthwhile. Moreover, players engage in multi-dimensional, multi-realm battles in an expansive open world.

Battle of Guardians’ Lore

“Battle of Guardians” offers a mythological, fantasy setting where mankind lived with a higher being called the Guardians. These extraordinary creatures were a lot stronger, fiercer, and more ferocious than their counterparts. Moreover, their stature was massive, and the Guardians were godlike figures. Due to their astronomical superiority, the human race worshipped the Guardians and regarded them as higher deities.

However, the twist in the tale happened when humans gained prowess technologically. Humans grew apart from the Guardians as science, engineering, and technology advanced. Their reliance on Gods gradually waned, and these god-like figures were reduced to fables. This resulted in the Guardians receding into the unknown, leaving the humans independent and by themselves.

However, the peaceful era wasn’t for long, as mad curiosity made humans conduct an ominous experiment. The experiment opened a portal to hell, and all hell broke loose. All manner of demons and unearthly creatures began to descend upon Earth’s realm, invading and overwhelming Earth’s defense mechanism. The result was catastrophic, and human civilization was on the brink of extinction.

Then began the reign of terror, darkness, and horror, and Hell was upon the residents of Earth. It seemed that it was the end, as humans were feeble and powerless. As soon as humans started to lose their remaining hope, the Guardians descended to protect them and undo the catastrophic mistake humans made.

Game Modes

The game offers three modes as of now:

Tournament Mode: Tournament mode allows plenty of players to take part in it, ranging from 8 to 16 or 32. These players are put into a bracket where 1v1 fights determine the winner. The tournament mode works on the knockout system.

PvP Mode: Then we have the PvP mode, which uses matchmaking ratings to match players with equal skill sets. This mode allows a 1v1 battle where the opponents are randomly selected.

Story and Training Mode: PvE mode helps players learn the basics of the game and also helps in updating levels. However, the fight against AI gets more difficult with every passing stage. This mode contains a total of 10 stages.

“Battle of Guardians” Characters

There are three main races in the game: Guardians, Humans, and Demons. Each race has unique attributes and features, making the game more interesting. One attribute counters another, and vice versa. Humans are more advanced in technology (intelligence); Guardians are super powerful (damage); and Demons have massive health pools (health points).

  • God of War (Ultra rare): Full set of combo and ultra skill level

Battle of Guardians Features

Battle of Guardians offers its own NFT marketplace where players can buy and sell NFT characters and in-game items, as well as rent them out.

The game uses Battle of Guardians Share ($BGS) and Fighting Points ($FP) as in-game currencies. Players will be able to use these currencies to buy NFT characters, in-game items, and stake. $BGS is also the game’s governance token.

The renting option in the game lets players earn passively by renting out their in-game assets to other players.

Finally, Battle of Guardians also offers a scholarship program, taking into account the popularity of guilds. Guilds and scholars will enter into an agreement prior to leasing NFTs where they will share the profit equally.
