Fight to earn – Now, this is a well thought out derivative of the play-to-earn model which, if executed well, can be a tremendous hit among Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fans. Or anyone who is into competitive NFT gaming, for that matter.
Metafight bills itself as the first Metaverse and NFT game on the block, which has tapped into that concept to create an exciting and financially rewarding gameplay.
It looks like Metafight is already picking up steam in NFT/Metaverse gaming circles, leaving many curious viewers eager to learn more about what Metafight is, how it’s played, and the technical architecture around it. is constructed.
We hope this early review answers all of these questions so that you can get off to a good start before you actually try out the game. Let’s start with the basics:
Metafight is an NFT game where players fight each other in leagues Combat Card. Each fighter card is an NFT representing a professional MMA fighter.
Fighter cards are the main asset in the gameplay. Each card comes with a rare level based on the total number of cards in circulation. The higher the rarity, the less that card is in circulation.
The scale of rarity is in the following order: Bronze > Silver > Gold > Legendary > Unique.
The rarity level outlines a card’s comprehensive value, meaning that unique cards are the most valuable cards in gameplay, followed by Legendary, Gold, Silver, and Bronze cards. The net supply of combat cards is fixed for each variant.
Each fighter card is filled with information about the fighter it represents. Some of this information may include:
- Fighter’s name and nationality.
- The gym where fighters train.
- Weight class for fighter.
- Fighter’s position and power.
- The league in which the fighter is active.
- Card version (ie when the card was minted).
- Metafight score, which basically represents the power of cards in gameplay.
In addition to Fighter cards, Metafight also offers ‘inactive card’ Which players can use to boost their combat cards. Passive cards come in many varieties and collectively they represent the entire MMA ecosystem and its stakeholders. Except for fighters, these cards represent all stakeholders in the MMA ecosystem, including sponsors, leagues, coaches, and gyms.
The total supply of passive cards per variant is more flexible than combat cards.
You can join a league and start fighting opponents by registering one of your fighter cards in that particular league. Your combat card will be matched against those of your opponents during each battle. You will participate in several fights during the league and the outcome of each fight will be decided by the following factors:
- Your card’s Metafight Score
- Real-world stats of the MMA fighter your card represents. (e.g. percentage of knockouts given by a fighter, submissions, win/lose ratio, and so on).
- Boost given by inactive cards.
- a random factor.
Note that the outcome of each fight can be determined by the roll of the dice, in addition to your card’s Metafight score and the boosts provided by special NFTs and passive cards. It features gameplay on two fronts:
- You get complete freedom to customize your strategy at different levels throughout the league.
- Each Fighter card has a real chance of defeating any other Fighter card.
Leagues are arenas where you can register your fighter card and start competing against other players. Your in-game ranking and placement on the leaderboard is determined by how you perform throughout the league. The higher your position on the leaderboard, the higher your chances of winning.
Players can engage other players in 1v1 mode or they can participate in leagues with eight to 128 players (or more). Once a league is fully booked, another is created automatically to accommodate more players.
Leagues can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days. In fact, more challenging leagues with higher rewards can sometimes take a week or more.
All leagues have pre-announced start and end dates. You can only register one Fighter card per league. Once the game locks your card for a league, you cannot use it anywhere else until the league ends.
At the core of the Metafight Metaverse is its core NFT marketplace. Here you can acquire and exchange NFTs including combat cards.
To start playing Metafight, you’ll first need to acquire your first in-game cards. The process is relatively simple – you go to the market and buy boosters.
Booster consists of three cards including Fighter and Passive cards. Three cards are randomly selected so you don’t know which cards will be until after you buy the boosters. However, the rarity of each booster is specified on its product page to make it easier for you to select.
The only way to get Bronze, Silver and Gold cards is to buy boosters. However, you can get the Legendary Card through boosters and direct purchases.
Conversely, you can only buy unique cards through auctions.
Fight and Win: How does it work?
In the first phase, Metafight will reward users with fighter cards, boosters and passive cards. However, it plans to add the cryptocurrency to the reward pool at a later stage.
Overall, the rule in the game is that the more you fight, the more NFTs you can win.
Metafight touts its cage event as the most exciting arena where you get access to high-value prizes. Here you need to successfully complete the daily and weekly challenges to stack up the points. Top performers at Cage Events get access to special sales featuring exclusive NFTs.
Over time, Metafight will introduce two different types of leagues – the regular league and the premium league, the latter offering a much larger prize pool.
Metafight was co-founded by Thomas Chauveau (CEO) and Julia Mahe (Head of Legal and Business Affairs), both of whom have some serious experience in Web 3.0, gaming and the NFT/Metaverse ecosystem.
The team overseeing the project has already dodged itself, which is certainly a huge factor in favor of transparency and user trust.
Not only that, Metaphysics is also backed by a number of technology partners, including France-based Terona (more on that in the following section).
And the best thing about the game is that it gives users a Authentic MMA Experience — As far as possible by NFT games. To be sure, the Metafight team already claims to be Involved in several organizations as MMA partners of the sport, These organizations include BA International Management, MMA Factory, Marseille Fight Club, Bulgarian Top Team, Boxing Squad, Resilience Sport Management and World Fight Sports Management.
Metaphysics is powered by Ternoa, a Polkadot-based multi-chain NFT network that promises utility-focused cross-compatible, carbon-neutral NFTs aimed at dApps, games, and other Web 3.0 inventions.
Ternoa promises the following advantages over other contemporary NFT networks:
- Low transaction fees — as little as $1 per transaction or less.
- A much better transaction throughput.
- Fully encrypted and decentralized data, thus ensuring data security.
- Ability to rent and easily share NFTs without the need for transfer of ownership.
- Multisig capability, which means it allows NFT wallets with multiple owners.
- Interoperability, which is important for NFT and Web 3.0 platforms such as Metaphysic.
- Fractionalization, or the ability to share ownership of an NFT among multiple owners.
