Questions Asked on Twitter For Mech Master Team!
Q1. With mech Master, we Can build and customize personal mechas including bacha system and 2D and 3D items and also gives the opportunity to participate in Battles & events Adventures and Master Mecha Area. Do we need crypto experience to able to access your interface & technology?
Ans — Actually no. We try to make the interface as simple as possible so that non-crypto people can access easily. However, there are some Blockchain elements they need to get to learn first, like having a wallet address and create an account in Mech Master game with their wallet and so on.
These kind of things are simple for us but I know it’s not that easy for a lot of people out there. Therefore, we’re working our partners to provide a password-less login with Blockchain but still have the best security.
Q2. I saw you’re intending to start a staking programme this quarter in order to raise the MECHA level on your platform. Will this staking programme solely assist in levelling up in the Mech Master game? Are there any incentives for staking $MECH tokens?
Ans — $MECH is the main currency in game with the main Token Utility, include: In-game Currency, Staking, NFT farming, NFT renting, Gacha system, and Governance.
Mech token will be the premium currency in the game. In parallel, there will be another currency unit, with only a simple shopping role, gold.
We’re trying out best the make $MECH has the best token utility in the market. Staking $MECH token will bring many benefits. First of all in the game, including: the opportunity to open rare Mecha, rare weapon, owning land and winning land auction, having a higher right to make requirements on calculation. features as well as types and types of Mecha…
In particular, staking $MECH tokens will bring many priorities to Mirai Studio’s next projects.
Q3. Augmented Reality (AR) is an important part of Mech Master to enhance the player experience. So basically players can fight on their screen. How does the augmented reality of Mech Master work? What advantages does it offer?
Ans — Yes, AR is an important part of Mech Master to improve the experience of players. So, basically, players can battle on their screen. However, with AR, players can bring the battle happen on any surface in front of them.
One of the barrier, though, it usually require a higher-end phones. However, we’ll try to optimize to bring this feature to as many players as possible.
Here is the demo AR that we gonna release very soon next month for Mecha box owner to open and play with them.
Q4. As far as I know, Mirai Studio’s first game is Mech Master, which raises a doubt in my mind. So, your team has enough experience in game development and the blockchain world to develop a game with the features you have proposed for the future?
Ans — Mech Master is the result of the contribution of 30+ people. We are a team of experts and highly skilled individuals across the country, who come together for one mission only — creating this incredible Mecha game for everyone.
Our team is based in Vietnam, and we came from many international game companies established here in Vietnam, such as Microsoft Publish, Gameloft, Scopely and so on.
We didn’t start this project yesterday. We started it 9 months ago and we started to raise funds only 1 and half months ago. And when the game is fully released in Q1–2022, that already takes us more than 1 year to work on the game.
This is to let you know that if we lack of experience, it wouldn’t have to be that complicated to develop the project from scratch instead of just cloning some code and graphic like many others are doing out there. When we talked to investors, we didn’t just talk on paper. We showed them the progress and our done work.
And it takes that long due to the complication of fully 3D rendering mechas we want to put in-game. And one of our unique points is also the full ecosystem that will not just only please gamers or traders, also gamers who trade.
We’ve already had the plan for Mech Master to grow in the next 5 years will all the features and updates are in plan. The big update will be released in 5 months, after the full game released in Q1–2021 with 17 new features in plan to make players exciting.
Q5. Can you please give some more information about the ”Tournament” of Mech Master? What are the main requirements for joining to the Tournaments and what are the possible rewards?
Ans — This tournament is a part of our play to win in Mech Master. Basicly, players form a team from 3–5 Mechas, then they can bring their army into battles to win $MECH tokens. So, PVP battles is mainly 1 VS 1. However, we want the token pool bigger so that player can earn more in a quicker way, we apply the idea of tournaments. It’s a play-off battles until find the only winner in the final match.
The final $MECH token can earn x10 to x20 compared to PVP 1VS1 originally.

Mech Master is the Mecha game with the first-ever complex 3D rendering characters on a blockchain. Its notch art & design are better than 100% of current games on blockchain currently on the market. To celebrate the release of Mech Master, we’re going to do an airdrop event with a total prize pool of 85,000 $MECH and other special rewards.
50% of our team mate in Mirai Studio have the experience of working in Japan and we all love the Gunpla culture. So, why not to make it happen by us? So here we are today with Mech Master, the debut game of Mirai Studio.
We’re lucky to have such huge support from Icetea Labs 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 an awesome team!
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 Icetea Labs and our partners.
Q2. You mention that currently $MECH is based on Polygon, Binance Smart Chain, and the PolkaFoundry network. But can you tell us more about why you have chosen to develop in these 3 chains? Also, what would be the APY percentage that the holders of this token would generate?
Ans — We actually focus on BSC for now. 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.
Q3. Regarding the Gacha system, I saw that For every 5 wins continuously, users can get a Gacha ticket for the lucky draw from the system. How will you ensure that this system is fair to all players? Does the system operate purely on luck or there are ways to increase the chance of getting items we want?
Ans — Gacha system we plan to implement is kind of a pool of rewards. For every 5 wins continuously, users can get a Gacha ticket for the lucky draw from the system, which including weapons, custom skins, components and even Mechas (but with a real low rate). There’s no way to increase the chance to get any item you want, it’s actually 100% luck (and we make sure it’s luck so that it can be fair to all the players)
Q4. Mech Master is building a new horizon on the Moon: Mech Master’s most exclusive Moonland. Moonland is the first interactive 3D Virtual World of the Moon, divided into terrains represented by a unique NFT. Will they make private sales of these lands? How can you get them?
Ans — Moonland is exactly what it sounds like, users can buy a virtual plot of land on the moon via the Mech Master game. Moon would act as the base for several battles in the game and players can purchase plots of land and build their towns on the moon. They can build strongholds, factories, barracks, facilities and expand their economy and mechanize the army.
Moonabase would not just be a collectible in the game, rather it would play a critical role in the gameplay. After owning a land plot, players can build their own Moonbase, build facilities, create new Mechas, weapons, pilots, and mine Dark Matter.
Each Moonland plot will have a unique mining output, determining how much Dark Matter players can mine each day. Dark Matter would act as the fuel of the gameplay,and it would be widely used in almost every activity on Moon Land, from building facilities, powering Mechas, producing equipment, and discovering new Mecha skills, etc.
