Airdrop: 100$ for members with the best questions.
Below are some main points of this AMA session:
PART I: INTRODUCTION OF MECH MASTER
1. Could you briefly describe what is Mech Master and its key products?
Mr Ron Nguyen: Mech Master is an upcoming P2E NFT game. It’s the first-ever 3D Turn-based Mecha Blockchain game, with strategic RPG elements, where users can earn tokens through skillful gameplay and smart trading.
In the Mech universe, players are challenged to collect giant fighting machines and futuristic weapons to save the world. Being an experienced pilot in Augmented Reality, you set yourself apart from other players with unique tactics and sharp decision-making skills.
Being a blockchain game in a sci-fi setting, not only combat arenas will earn you a reward, but you can also profit from battles by earning Mech tokens.
2. Please share the mission and vision of Mech Master in the near future.
Mr Ron Nguyen: We have a vision to enrich lives through the opportunities nurtured by the the gameplay that only possible via decentralized technologies. With the mission by our talent, imagination, and technology, our players “play to win” everyday to realize the full potential of the possibility in decentralized gaming.
3. Would you mind updating any hot news or big events of Mech Master to attract more users in the upcoming time?
Mr Ron Nguyen: Mech Master will IDO on October 24. Now all marketing activities are focused on this milestone. In parallel, from now until the end of the year, Mech Master will expand cooperation with domestic and foreign game and technology partners to equip Mech Master game with outstanding advantages in terms of images, security and some orientation on multiplayer gameplay (never appeared on the market).
The game will officially launch in Q1 2022. This will be the most important milestone and the entire team of more than 30 people on the team work almost 24/7 to achieve this timeline. Making 3D games is very time consuming. A 3D character takes more than a month to complete the rough version and to make it into the game, it will take about the same amount of time.
However, it sounds harsh about high workload, but the team has also achieved memorable milestones, creating great motivation for each member. Most recently, Mech Master's 2 NFT box sales have been warmly supported.
Phase 1 of the gratitude sale for the Mech Master community, the participation level is simple, almost anyone can buy, 1000 boxes of NFT were sold out in… 25 seconds. Phase 2, 6000 NFT boxes, combined with selling on GameFi, were all sold out in 15 minutes. Seeing such support, we don’t dare to be late to the deadline.
PART II: PRE-COLLECTED QUESTIONS FROM TWITTER
Q1. From @Lidiamga
We are currently in the boom of the NFT market, which revolutionizes all DeFi with its authentication features and indefinite value, do you think that the NFTs provided in Mech Master will be able to compete and keep up with a market that is in full development?
Mr Ron Nguyen: Sure do. NFT is a part of Mech Master and that is what we’re so proud of and have the most confidence.
NFTs have now hit the gaming world leading to several new projects basking on the trend without focusing much on the original game itself. Mech Master changes that with its first-ever 3D Turn-based Mecha game, which incorporates strategic RPG elements, where users can earn tokens through skillful gameplay and smart trading.
Players can assemble a lineup full of giant Mechas with amazing 3D models to battle against others, recruit new pilots, collect new lightsabers and energy cannons, and show off tactical prowess. Mech Master also boasts of a Pilot Academy that will enable players to arm Mechas with new pilots. Moreover, training Mechas to be more proficient in commanding will give them a tremendous opportunity to stay ahead of others. New pilots can also be traded in the Marketplace.
Mech Master has one of the most enormous libraries of assets that players can trade around to build the strongest Mecha lineup. Almost every item in the game is created by players, from materials found by players. They will become players’ own unique assets which can be very valuable on the trade market.
Now you know why we’re so confident with Mech Master’s NFT elements, right?
Q2. From @MrDung732002
Can you tell us more about the details of the upcoming events, such as blind box sales, card mining, NFT forging, and NFT transactions? How do we become involved? Is there a limit to how many blind boxes we may buy and where can we buy?
Mr Ron Nguyen: We are in the period of time before the IDO. As shared earlier, we have done 2 mystery NFT box sales and it was a blast. There will be another round announced soon in the coming weeks after IDO.
All the mystery NFT boxes will be open in November and that’s also when our marketplace open for NFT trading at first. Please look for our announcements in our official channels (we also have non-English speaking channels).
As the nature of the game Mech Master, we don’t have any limitation on NFT boxes or Mechas owned.
Q3. From @ama_tort
You recently announced the native token of Mech Master,known as $MECH, is going to have its IDO launched on Redkite Launchpad on the oct 24th. I surely dont want to miss out here, can yu share us about how to participate in the IDO? What are the pre requisites for IDO slots?
Mr Ron Nguyen: Thanks for asking about this. This is what we are exciting the most right now and I hope you guys feel the same.
We have prepared 2 pools, private pool and public pool, so that anyone can participate Mech Master IDO and bring the game to the mass.
For detail how to join and buy $MECH token, we have an article to support you guys on this. A very detailed article: https://medium.com/mech-master/step-by-step-tutorial-on-joining-whitelist-for-ido-igo-on-gamefi-and-red-kite-9bc6a6fab53e
Hope it helps and see you guys on the 24th OCT (4 days away)
Q4. From @DngGiaPhong2
In terms of community, there is still a large audience in the gaming world who are not aware of the crypto and blockchain industry. What is MechMaster's plan to reach out to these people and make your voice heard by all gamers?
Mr Ron Nguyen: This question is so good that it fits well our team's thinking because it is true that there are users who just want to be players and don’t care any complicated trading stuffs, right?
We have a mode for players, so-called “mercenaries”. Players who don’t want to involve in owning mechas or trade, they can join some mercenaries groups and go to battle for players who have and build up Mechas team. These players with many Mechas, in the other way around, are fond of trading than playing.
So, with this mode, it’s all win-win situation as any win will bring tokens to both side.
Q5. From @Jasonnmoree
I saw that Mech Master partnered with #RedKite and was supported by Polka Foundry to launch the $MECH token. What are the benefits of this strategic partner for the MechMaster ecosystem? How will it affect the ecosystem and project growth? When are the details of the launch date updated?
Mr Ron Nguyen: Redkite will be Mech Master’s IDO launchpad on the 24 Oct. We’re lucky to have such huge support from Redkite in term of marketing, partnerships of biz and tech, and especially the connection to large community bases.
And I, personally, get the chance to work with awesome people like Thi Truong and his team. So honored!
Now all marketing activities are focused on this milestone. In parallel, from now until the end of the year, Mech Master will expand cooperation with domestic and foreign game and technology partners to equip Mech Master game with outstanding advantages in terms of images, security and some orientation on multiplayer gameplay (never appeared on the market). And sure, we can’t do that without the support of Redkite.
CF: That's the end of Part 2, I believe all of the members here have gathered enough useful information, also they have many questions to exchange directly with you today.
PART III: BEST LIVE QUESTIONS IN CRYPTOFAMILY GROUP
Q1: Partners are very important for every project today, may I know which partners you have now? and which partners in the future you will be heading to?
Mr Ron Nguyen: To name a few of our partners, including IceTea Labs, Youbi, Basics Capital, Kyros Ventures, as well as the other well-known VCs such as Lotus Capital, Au21, MiH, Magnus Capital, x21… They’ve been helping us in terms of marketing, open up the network, advising on strategy, technology advice…
New names will be announced soon as now we have signed with new partners in terms of technologies and future developments of Mech Master.
Q2: Current NFT is a hot topic, but NFT is not just for industry. What does your project think? Is your project for elite investors only?
Mr Ron Nguyen: Mech Master universe being a P2E NFT game comprises numerous unique and NFT collectibles representing characters, machines, land, and various kinds of items in the Mech Master game. There are multiple tiers of collectibles each representing a different value and uniqueness. The more unique an NFT, the harder it is to get in the gameplay.
One of the more important NFTs is called Mecha NFT which is an ERC-721 NFT collectible. It represents a giant fighting machine in the Mech universe. This is the centerpiece of Mech Master’s gameplay, as players will use their Mechas to compete with others. There are 5 tiers of the rarity of Mecha, Equipment, and Pilot.
Apart from these five there will also be two special tiers for:
● Limited time items
● Set Equipment
Q3. 2D and 3D are two completely different genres of games and items, they also target different audiences. So why does Mech Master focus on developing both 2D and 3D products ? And in the future, will it fully transition to 3D?
Mr Ron Nguyen: Actually, Mech Master is a full 3D game at launch, from each character to any scenes, effects and moon base are all rendered in 3D. Initially, though, all of these 3D characters were designed in 2D first, and then they were rendered in 3D.
Q4. What is your plan for global expansion? At present, which market are you focus on, or is it focused on building and growing to gain customers, users and partners?
Mr Ron Nguyen: That’s a big goal man! Honestly, for now, at this point in time, any partnerships or any new tech we put in, are all for the sake of the Mech Master game itself. That’s it!
Market leader, global expansion or anything like that are just some no-meaning words, man! It’s not that we don’t dream big or we can’t do that. It’s just we want to be real and be honest with our players, partners, investors and communities.
Glad to have the support from Redkite and it has helped us a lot. But instead of shooting some no-valued hype, we made our game happen as planned in the timeline we agreed with Redkite and GameFi. We are happier when people ask us to show what we have done, the code that we wrote or the 3D rendering in our computers, man.
Q5. Binance Smart Chain is among the shining stars because of Ethereum's problems. However, why did you choose BSC when there are other alternatives, why not Polygon, Cosmos, Solana etc?
Mr Ron Nguyen: It’s good and it’s exactly what we do. The main reason is that this chain has many users in our target market. Also, game like Mech Master creates a big numbers of transactions. Gas fee on BSC is considered as the most affordable on the market and it’s a good reason to attract players.
