    Howdy! I can't say much at all as I'm just a technical advisor at this point. This is obviously not a great time to be doing a crypto game but they are moving ahead as best they can. If I hear anything I can share, I'll pass it along but mostly silent while they wait for the "Crypto Winter" to thaw.

    A normal MMO's business model is challenge enough. But a crypto game right now .... wow.

    The current 'crypto winter' we see driven by trends we can see in today's news will have a generational impact on any crypto MMO/market buying patterns, IMHO. Just sayin'

    Reinvesting the effort into SOTA is a better bet.

    Indeed, 10-15 years minimum, to see anything like we've seen in the past.
    The real money is to cater to the desires of a homebody aging population.
    :rolleyes: Makes me wonder wonder where they could find one :D~Time Lord~

    I see crypto as just another money pyramid with some fancy technical stuff sprinkled on top. Yes some lucky people got rich, but that's how pyramids work anyway.

    On the game side of things: I don't get why would RG want a new game made from scratch to be an "instance based high fantasy UO successor".

    I'm sure the game itself will be fun on its own. Just switch out the NFT monetization element with a traditional model, and put it out the door. If it's fun, with all the game design wisdom contributed by Lord British, it'll do well.

    That'd require funding and the whole point of NFT games are to "self-fund" by fleecing the intended audience.

    I removed a post that was incorrectly stating that SotA's asset development was impacted by NFTs.

    Catnip and Shroud of the Avatar are not connected to Iron & Magic in any way. Please limit discussion in this thread to fact based information about Iron & Magic.

    In addition, I am moving the thread out of the game forums as this topic is not related to SotA
