Below are some main points of this AMA session:
PART I: OVERVIEW QUESTIONS
- Firstly, can you give me brief introdution about your management team and Summoners Arena.
Sure, it is nice to be here today. I’m Jasmine, Business Development Lead of Summoners Arena.
Summoners Arena is an innovative idle-RPG game built on Binance Smart Chain, integrating DeFi and NFT with a focus on an economy-driven format. This format requires players to strategically plan their resources, items, characters and formation to maximize their gaining.
So we could say that Summoners Arena is heavily based on the decision-making of the players, making it the perfect fit for the current Blockchain and Crypto uprising.
About our team, the game was launched by Onechain (founded by founders of Onesoft – ranked on top 16 game publishers worldwide and Sonat) together with Zitga Studio. Onechain has a mission of bringing successful games in the traditional market to blockchain space. Our core team members have several years working in the traditional gaming industry and they share the same passions for game development.
Onesoft is the second largest game publisher in SEA. Currently, the company has more than 10 game studios. The company was valued at 500M $ by Tencent in 2018. According to global statistics on game downloads, Onesoft is the 16th ranked game studio unit worldwide. So we are pretty confident with the team and our experience.
- Next, could you let us know the occasions that lead you to the idea of this innovative Play-Own-Earn Idle-RPG on BSC ?
Summoners Arena: Summoners Arena is the result of our vision to establish a blockchain version for an already successful traditional game, Summoners Era, as we see a perfect fit of our idle-RPG model to the gamefi world.
As the main purpose of the game is to satisfy the users in terms of entertainment, and most of the P2E gaming players nowadays are significantly driven by the “earning” aspect. The problem can be because of the lack of sufficient gaming structure or the sophistication of the gameplay. Being one of the top gaming publishers in the traditional market, we are here to bridge the gap and help to build the P2E industry to become more balanced between “playing” and “earning” aspects. Users can fully enjoy the game and play it in longer terms, just like what they are doing now in the traditional market, at the same time, give them the rights to have the control over their in-game asset income and also can earn some profit while playing.
So that’s why we have came up with “PLAY-OWN-EARN” motto, not Play to Earn. ☺️
- Could you tell us about the short-term and long-term goals of Summoners Arena in the future ?
Summoners Arena: Yes definitely.
We have done significant marketing steps towards the local communities. We are going to focusing on approaching more crypto and non-crypto players in the near future. You may join our Discord for more exciting news: http://discord.gg/summonersarena
In this quarter, we have successfully launched our Triple IGO on Binance nFT, GuildFi and website. We also organized 3 Beta Test events for our early users. We are going to have the final Open Beta by March. So we hope to get everything ready for our mainnet launch by the end of April. Users can start to play our Free-to-play version without spending any initial fund.
In the longer term, as we have been successful with our traditional version, we definitely aim bigger goals for our Summoners Arena. We are already on our way to deliver an NFT game with speed, flexibility and ingenuity. Amazing game experience, well-structured mechanism and stable play-to-earn model are our top priorities. Furthermore, Summoners Arena would like to pave the way for traditional gamers towards an easily accessible blockchain game with a well-developed play-to-earn model.
PART II: PRE-COLLECTED QUESTIONS FROM TWITTER
SummonersArena has two tokens which are $ASG and $SAE tokens, why decided to have two tokens? Any advantages to have dual-token model and what are the governance mechanism of them? Can you just explain their differences and their roles in the game platform?
Summoners Arena: Summoners Arena will adopt $SAE (Summoners Arena Essence), BEP20 token, as its governance token and $ASG as its in-game currency.
$SAE will be used for unlocking & upgrading summoners, paying fee, staking and for governance purposes. $SAE limited supply; and centralization of the token allocation helps developers balance tokenomics and capture token value.
Meanwhile, $ASG is the payment currency for in-game activities (summoning new heroes, merging items, etc) and acts as main incentives in the secondary market.

Please tell us about the technological parts that connect the #SummonersArena infrastructure. How can these elements work together to create a truly exceptional project? Do you intend to introduce any other features that will help your technology to evolve?
Currently we are running our app on BNB chain (previously BSC) with a multi-module marketplace where users can freely trade their assets, mint heroes and many more. many in-game services are running hybridly on the blockchain and on our server as well.
We are not limiting ourselves. Every option on the table is worth a try, exchange integration, side chains and all that.
- From @blackrose11221
The play-To-earn approach is used by numerous blockchain-based NFT game projects. What is your plan to improve the play-to-earn gaming model’s experience and global adoption? What makes it exciting and beneficial for consumers to invest in Summonres Arena ?
We approach it differently. Our approach is “Play-Own-Earn”. So it should be a balance between play and earn as it is the core factor for a user to stay with the game. In the very beginning, we all play game for fun right? So all games should be fun, and the aspect of “earn” should be stable and reasonable.
So we are here for a long-term goals and users’ trust.
We already have a successful model of the traditional game, so we are pretty confident with the development process that we are going to make in years ahead.
Many games today set high costs to start the game & therefore start with a small player base. Does Summoners Arena require an entrance fee or starting conditions? Do I need to hold an NFT or hold a certain amount of tokens in order to enjoy & play the “arena” Game?
Summoners Arena: As mentioned, we will have free-to-play version, which means that users do not spend any cent in the beginning. So we are open for everyone to experience the game and they can choose whether to play the Play-own-earn version or not.
Ofcourse, when the play-own-earn version is launched, one user will need at least 5 NFTs to play the game. But the NFTs hero are diverse and there are many strategies you could choose. I could say that the price now is very affordable.
Users now can purchase our NFTs on Binance NFT or on our Marketplace.

With the Play2earn trend and the rise of many GameFi projects nowadays, could you please list some prominent features that make Summoners Arena ahead from other competitors? On the way of development, are there any challenge you overcame to achieve your ultimate goals?
Sure, as the game is developed from an already-established game with a strong user-based, Summoners Arena has had vast experience in community building, graphics, lores and character development. Moreover, Summoner Arena’s play-first model puts heavy emphasis on well-developed gameplay and user experience, allowing it to differentiate from the usual earn-first P2E model of most GameFi projects.
Summoners Arena’s play-to-earn system is also meticulously calculated and designed to ensure that players at all levels and purposes have the opportunity to earn. Furthermore, the game’s P2E mechanism is carefully scaled to prevent hyperinflation.
And needless to say, we hare having great support from our backers. We have closed our seed rounds with pretty big names in the industry including Pantera – lead round, Coinbase Ventures, OneChain, Merit Circle, Coin98, Cosmic Guild, GuildFi, Spartan, Istari Ventures, Impossible Finance, Kyros Ventures and Kyber Ventures.
For our journey until now, we could say that there were not really significant challenges as we all have experience and thank to our amazing dev team, we actually finished our roadmap in time and everything is working on the right track despite the market condition.
CF: Much appreciation to all the insightful answers from our Guest. The community must be really interested in becoming part of Summoners Arena

Yes ofcourse, you may read more on our website, the Whitepaper section.
We haven’t disclosed the schedule for token sale yet, but it will be announced soon, properly in the end of March.
- Does SA consider being invested by a top tier like Coinbase and Panthera as its strongest point? Because there are many idle games on the market right now.
Interesting question, thank you.
Actually, we are proud to have such great backers like Pantera, Coinbase Ventures, etc. I believe having credible backers is the reflection of our project’s quality.
Idle-RPG is a gaming model that is familiar with most of gamers. However, the strengths of Summoners Arena lie in other aspect as well, like technologies, visions, team, and how we build it.
- How we use level 2 and level 3 NFTs? And what are the specific differences between them?
For now, we have just finished our Genesis NFT sale on Binance NFT, GuildFi and our website. The NFTs can be ranked from 1* to 5* and they actually have different skillset as well the body part rate.
