Q&A from KuCoin
Q: Could you briefly introduce CEBG to us?
Jesse: Crypto Elite's Battlegrounds (CEBG) is a blockchain-based battle royale action game with an anime aesthetic. In the game, players land in the war zone, search for guns and fight each other for precious resources. CEBG has a high level of gameplay depth comparable to Web2.0 games.
The game has both PVP and PVE modes, and players will need to upgrade their NFT and improve their game skills to increase their win rate. We also will have a variety of built-in social features so that you can play with your friends and even access to stream the game to others around the world.
Overall, it's really exciting to share this game with you, and I hope you're as excited as we are to play it!
Q: How do you understand GameFi 2.0?
Jesse: In GameFi 1.0, games only brag about their financial attributes and merely rely on economic benefits to attract players. As a result, these games are severely lacking in entertaining features. However, GameFi 2.0 puts emphasis on extending the project’s life cycle by introducing more playable and sustainable mechanics to the overall ecosystem. With such
a vision at heart, CEBG will bring users a refreshing gaming experience in the GameFi 2.0 era.
Q: Can you also give us some backstage knowledge of the team?
Jesse: Sure, our Producer, Tech Lead, and Art Director each have decades of experience in the industry on many famous projects. The rest of the team was also hand-picked by our core team due to their experience in the gaming industry as well. We also have a great operations team working very hard to build the CEBG meta-universe that will bring us millions of GameFi community users worldwide in the future, which is important to us. Today, we already have over 30 communities joining us to empower the game. We have a lot of confidence in this strong team.
Q: Can you please introduce us to NFT in the game?
Jesse: Our NFTs can be categorized into 3 types; Heroes, Weapons, and Chips.
Heroes are anime characters, each with their own unique art, animations, skills, and background. You can increase the rarity and level of lower-level heroes by merging them. The higher the level of the heroes, the more the player gains.
You can also equip these heroes with weapons that can be used to shoot enemies on the battlefield. There are seven types of weapons, ranging from long-range sniper rifles to rapid-fire SMGs, to suit any play style you wish. Like the heroes, they can be upgraded to become the most powerful version.
The last NFT is the chip, which can be used to upgrade the hero and their weapons. The chips come in 4 different rarities and are destroyed during the upgrade process.
People can buy the hero NFT in the upcoming pre-sale, and the weapons and chips can be bought later on the market or rented from other players.
Q: Can you tell us what's so special about Genesis NFT?
Jesse: Indeed, Genesis NFT is unique in CEBG Metaverse. It is not only limited in number, but
also have features that distinguish them from other NFTs.
With Genesis NFT, you get the role of Genesis NFT holder inside CEBG Metaverse, and this role corresponds to many privileges:
1. Holders will be able to access a special channel within CEBG discord and have priority to participate in future events.
2. Holders have access to future token airdrops. The number of tokens mainly depends on how many NFTs you hold.
3. Holders will have the first place to participate and whitelist all future games developed by CEB.
Q: Are the rules for the Genesis NFT up for grabs yet? Where can we see them?
Jesse: Yes, we've got the rules ready to grab. On the 25th at 11:30 am UTC, we will have the Whitelist round on the KuCoin IGO platform in the quantity of 500 at a unit price of 100 USDT.
And half hours later, which is 12 pm UTC, we will launch the first round of IGOs on the KuCoin IGO platform in the quantity of 1000. And more details have been posted on our Twitter feed, so you can follow us on Twitter to get the latest news!
Q: Could you give us a little more information about the tokenomic inside the game?
Jesse: Indeed, tokenomic is crucial for GameFi. Our 2 tokens in the game are CEG(utility token) and CEC( governance token).
The CEG token is what players will earn by playing the game. It can also be used for a variety of purposes in the game, like upgrading your character, repairing your gear, recovering energy so you can earn more tokens in a day, etc.
CEC can be used for staking and allow you to vote on important designs for the future of the game. We are upgrading in-game assets and purchasing NFTs.
Q: How do you ensure the stability and sustainability of the in-game economic system? What mechanisms are you going to implement to make the game sustainable?
Jesse: We have designed the economic model with this in mind in particular. To maintain a healthy flow of NFTs within the game, the team has introduced a carefully designed NFT destruction mechanism. Specifically, merging low-level heroes increases their attributes and rarity. Players will keep upgrading their heroes and weapons to gain higher returns.
As a result, in-game NFTs can continue to appreciate through the consumption mechanism in upgrades, as lower-level NFTs are being burned. It is worth mentioning that higher-level NFTs will bring players higher returns, creating a reason to acquire multiple NFTs for the most dedicated players.
Q: How does the scholarship system work?
Jesse: Yes, because some players may not have the time to play the game but want to make a profit, we have also designed a passive income idle game system within the game.
We are continuing to finish building our scholarship system and welcome you to enter our community and continue interacting with us to create and share.
Q: What are the future direction of CEBG?
Jesse: As the first blockchain-based game in the PUBG genre, expectations were high for CEBG. Thanks to the team's hard work, we have already achieved several milestones.
After IGO this month, we will start preparing the alpha in early May.
The entire game will be launched in early June, and we will also go live with a 3D version soon.
Q: What is your strategy to attract new users and investors to your project and keep them long-term?
Jesse: First of all, we will focus on the quality of the game. The game experience is always the core competitiveness of the game. If you think it is fun, you will recommend it to your friends. In addition, we will work hard to protect the player's income. If you earn money, you will also become a loyal game user. Last but not least, we are grateful to our investment institutions. They bring us a lot of good channels and resources to get more attention!
Q: Can you tell us about your current partners? Will this partnership benefit CEBG and users?
Jesse: That's a good question. Our current investors include KoCoin Ventures, Kernel Ventures, Initiate Capital, Multiverse Play, Cososwap, etc. Our partners include over 30 guilds and DAOs. You can find them on our official website. The investors have brought resources to support CEGB in terms of funding and promotional channels and will be our most sincere advisors on the road to development. On the other hand, the Guild and DAO bring us more P2E investors, more scholars and will be co-builders of CEBG Metaverse.
Free-Ask from KuCoin Community
Q: Can you list some killer features of your project that make it ahead of its competitors? What is your platform's competitive advantage that you feel most confident about?
Jesse: Our biggest competitive advantage is how experienced our team is in all aspects of game design, from art to design to game programming to live ops. This gives us a lot of confidence in creating a long-lasting crypto game.
Q: Did you consider community feedback/requests during the creation of your product to expand on fresh ideas for your project? Many projects fail because the target audience and clients are not understood. So I'd like to know who your ideal consumer is for your product?
Jesse: We already tested the game with a select group of users, so we've already received feedback to refine certain parts of our game. We will be working with the community to post-launch to understand what features they would like to see in our game.
Q: What are the benefits of holding your token as a long-term investment? Can you tell us about the motivation and benefits for investors to keep your token in the long run?
Jesse: Due to our emphasis on creating a sustainable economic system on top of being a high-quality crypto game, leading to compounding growth of users, we're confident that the value of both the tokens and NFTs will grow slowly but consistently over time.
Q: Too many projects promise magic but never release any working product or prove any revenue within a short/long release time. Is your project also like this? If not, can you tell us what makes your project different from other projects?
Jesse: Our project was already developed as a traditional mobile game, and then later on last year, we decided to rebuild its economy and tech from the ground up to become a crypto game. I've already played the game, and it's been tested with 100s of users!
Q: Are you planning to promote your project in countries/regions where English is not good? Do you have a local community for them to understand your project better?
Jesse: Yes, we plan to promote to many non-English speaking regions. We've already started partnering with guilds in a wide variety of regions, and they're able to help us support local users in those areas.
Q: Can you share some details about recent major achievements done by your project? Also, what are the future roadmap and targets of your project?
Jesse: We have our internal Alpha already completed and playable, and we plan on releasing it to our partners early next month. Then the full 1.0 release of the game will be released in early June. After that, our 2.0 release will be available on Android and iOS and will feature our PvE Passive Income gameplay mode.
Q: Can you tell us about your team members? Are they qualified and professional in their fields? What are the recruiting qualifications for team members for your extraordinary project?
Jesse: Our Tech Lead, Producer, and Art Director all individually have over 10 years of experience in the industry. Our Art Director has even been involved in projects like Naruto Online and League of Legends.
Q: Each successful project has interesting stories before it is created. So can you tell people about the story that gave you the motivation to build it?
Jesse: Our game had originally been developed as a traditional mobile game. Still, after seeing the potential of Web3 games and what sort of things we may be able to build with our community together, we rebuilt the economy and tech stack from the ground up to accommodate blockchain integration.
Q: Truly, you've done AMA in many telegram groups, so what next? What other way will you make your project more popular?
Jesse: On top of AMAs with many Guilds and Telegram groups, we have also worked with our Investor and their partners to promote our game through traditional marketing channels, both on the crypto and gaming side of things.
Q: How can users stay updated with this project? Are there channels, including local communities, where users can get the latest updates?
Jesse: Here is a link to all of our socials that you can follow to keep up with the game!
KuCoin and CEBG have prepared a total of 20 Genesis NFTs to give away to AMA participants.
