Introduction Questions Asked By Team BlockTalks!

Q1. Could you please introduce Warena to our community in layman’s term?

Ans — Inspired by Blockchain Technology and capturing the global NFT trend, WARENA is an ingenious combination of the two latest gaming developments: Play-to-Earn and Metaverse. Anyone in the WARENA ecosystem can enjoy countervailing strategy gameplay within our vast, super-realistic Metaverse, earning at the same time, digital incomes. Tokens collected during the gameplay contribute to the WARENA ecosystem, and these tokens can later be converted into NFTs.

Using AI-Personalization technology, WARENA allows players to create their own unique characters, and is customizable to a deep level, including character avatar, warrior attributions, munitions, gear, and skills. This provides a highly realistic experience throughout one’s adventures. Within the WARENA Metaverse, players also can meet, interact, and battle with other characters from other ‘Universes’ such as Axie Infinity, My Defi Pet, Cat Gunner, and much more.

WARENA is not your typical NFT game. Our players get to immerse themselves in their character and engage in thrilling action-survival gameplay. The Warena NFT game will be released in two phases. Phase 1 will take place in Q3 of 2021 and will see the launch of the 2D tower defense game. It’s a survival, player-vs-environment game that will require players to defend against the oncoming army of zombies. Phase 2 is set to launch in Q2 2022 and will unlock the full force of the Warena metaverse with player-versus-player features.

Q2. What are the advantages of Warena to other alternatives in the Blockchain field?

Ans — So, Warena is THE FIRST personalized NFT play-to-earn and Metaverse game. Basically, it combines 2 hot trends NFT play-to-earn and Metaverse into Warena. It is also the first project introducing the personalized character feature in blockchain games.

And our competitive Advantages are:
Innovative combination between Play-to-Earn and Metaverse built cleverly upon an engaging story and plot.
AI personalization tech allows users to upload their photos and create unique digital avatars.
There is the ability to engage with crossover characters from other universes such as Axie Infinity, Cat Gunner, and My Defi Pet.
Warena NFTs are created across different blockchains such as BSC, Polygon, Near, and Solana to name a few.

With the above special features, the support of partners, and upcoming marketing plans, we believe that WARENA has enough potential to become a new market trend.

Q3. What are the major milestones Warena achieved so far & what are in the future pipeline?

Ans — Before the IDO, the Warena team is putting a lot of focus on product development first.
Marketing activities in this phase is mainly to provide information about the project, attract the attention of players and investors about the upcoming IDO, clearly demonstrate the development potential and attractiveness of the project.

We’re doing a lot of AMAs around the world (USA, Europe, Korea, China, South Asia). Please follow our channels for updated news and announcements.

IDO day is Oct 7th on RedKite & DAO Maker, Oct 8th on Ignition

After the IDO, the team will focus on building and promoting Warena How-to-play series and other game-related content on all of our social channels, especially Twitter, Telegram, Facebook & Youtube, to increase interaction with our community. At the same time, we will release a guide on how to play the game, a tokens 'how-to', create more campaigns and have interactive activities so that the community can make an important contribution to the game building process.

Questions Asked on Twitter For Warena Team!

Q1. While doing my research, I found your ecosystem has two tokens $WARE $RENA. Can you explain the utilities of these tokens? How are they different? Which among the following is your “Main Token” and “Internal Token”.Do they have any real-life use also?

Ans — So, There are 2 main currencies in Warena Universe, including:
WARE token - the main in-game currency. It will be used for trading, exchanging, and improving one’s warriors including their special qualities.
RENA token - an ERC-20 governance token for the WARENA Universe. RENA holders will be able to claim rewards if they stake their tokens, play the game, and participate in key governance votes.

Besides that, investors like yield guild can buy NFT characters for their scholars to play-to-earn - investors can earn the appreciation of their investment -
Another feature is that If you own RENA tokens or legend NFT you can stake into the vault to earn revenue with WARENA project.

Q2. In Warena, there are six types of characters including humans, warriors, demons, dragons, elves and fairies. With Crossroad Metaver, humans who live in different lands can trade, a measly a symbiosis or territorial competence. But, how is this symbiosis executed?

Ans — These are just the six races that follow our story line. There will be more events taking place to make the metaverse more diverse and you - the Warena community - will shape that world with the development team in the next 8 months, the evening when Warena - Phase 2 (3D) releases the first official version.
Quests, activities, interactions between characters and territories will also be introduced in the near future. We have many lands, many game modes suitable for many different audiences.

Q3. Warena aims to be a real game of ownership of users with his own DAO. Cataloged as ""The WR Community Council"". But, do the players will experience the model of democratic governance? How will the rules of liquid democracy of the ""real world"" be? What do they refer with that last?

Ans — Currently, we are building Warena to allow our players to also own a piece of the game - this is what a decentralized organization (the Community Council) is.

Our project - Warena aims to be a true user-owned game with its own decentralized organization called the Community Council which will be managed by the community. We have also integrated a DAO (Decentralized autonomous organization), which over time can take over much of the decision-making power in the game. The Community Council will be an important element of the game ecosystem, as it will address both in-game issues as well as proposals regarding future game development and funding.

WARENA being a digital democracy within a mini-universe could not be possible without blockchain, as now we can implement rules that govern what the source code is running. This is an embodiment of the Chromia vision of public applications.

Q4. You’ve announced that there will be 2 main phases for your project, Phase 1 ‘SURVIVAL’ which is a 2D game, and Phase 2 ‘METAVERSE’ which is a 3D game. So what are the specs needed to play both versions? Especially the 3D version, will it need a super computer?

Ans — Currently the WARENA team is deploying both 2D and 3D versions at the same time. We chose lowpoly style to help our community of players easily access our WARENA game.

The 2D version only requires a browser with a stable network quality, or a mobile phone that can install the app. It's easy for everyone to join the game and earn money.
The 3D version needs a better network quality, and we are trying to optimize it so that players can have the best experience.

Q5. Warena’s NFTs are created on different blockchains like BSC, Polygon, Near, and Solana to name a few. What types of NFT assets are created in Warena? Are they interchangeable? Do you have a marketplace?

Ans — We are currently creating a DeFi marketplace and will release it soon.
Our NFTs can be bought, sold, and borrowed just like in the real world.
We want to break down all barriers of technology and the market.

It's hard to pick one standout feature that the team is most confident in as there are these three and many others that stand out.
Perhaps the Personalization feature will be a bit more unique because it has not been implemented in many games and is being researched and developed by the team in an optimal way to ensure the most realistic experience for the user.
