Rule Breakers got banned!

We at Pocket Arena are constantly on the lookout for suspicious activities occurring in the Pocket Arena ecosystem. Rule breakers such as multi account players, bot/macro players, cheaters have been manipulating battles, discouraging and taking advantage of other honest players.

To give a perspective to all our stakeholders involved, we have a total of over 85,000 PA signed-up accounts which are verified. Over the last one week we have detected over 1600 accounts to be malicious and we have already taken steps and have banned them.

Also we managed to block most macro used battles which resulted in the Public Pool significantly lower than before. Now, we have a higher attack success rate after the marco players have been blocked. Honest skilled players will win and earn the most!

Building a sustainable Web3 esports mobile platform

In 2017, when my company Emoji Games decided to jump into blockchain gaming, I had to find a good answer to justify my decision to drive my whole team into this unexplored new path, leaving my 15-year legacy in the traditional gaming industry behind. At that time, I found the statement below as the answer to the question, “Why blockchain gaming?’

“Digital gaming assets ownership and its transparent trading among P2P”

As of April 2022, we witnessed that the NFT gaming or Gamfi or blockchain Play2Earn gaming market (whatever you name it) has grown so much since last year. It tells me that my decision in 2017 was the right one.

But one still wonders -What makes this blockchain gaming/Play2Earn sustainable?

Bottom-line Issues for today’s Esports P2E NFT mobile gaming platform

Regardless of blockchain gaming or non-blockchain gaming, building a sustainable esports platform requires fair gaming rules and their enforcement to get credits from the users and to be able to give out fair prizes to winners. That means centralized governance is necessary to implement and enforce fair gaming rules.

Commonly, any player can use their most mean tactics in order to win the game and some prizes. The worst scenario happens when the developer manipulates the scores, minimizing the winning chance of organic players to maximize their profit.

In the blockchain gaming world, the consequences can be dire. We need to be alert to scammers all the time, and the governing body should keep on monitoring and coming up with the most up-to-date prevention measures to maintain the Esports platform sound and fair for everyone. The reality of today’s blockchain gaming is that players use these games as sources of income, so the developer shouldn’t be surprised that there are always users who won’t stop cheating or manipulating whenever any loophole is detected.

Often, a bigger issue from the developers’ side is that these games can easily turn into Ponzi scheme-like projects, especially since most gamers are focused on investing in assets and exploiting the game for financial purposes rather than enjoying the fun parts. Common business model of NFT P2E games today is “Pay to Win” so you are required to buy and invest in their NFT assets before even starting the game, whereas Pocket Arena’s play model is Free-To-Play-To-Earn.

Connecting Metamask wallets often work under PC. There are many restrictions and hurdles on mobile to connect your wallet whilst you are playing games. Still, the majority of players are not familiar with Metamask wallets. The first-time setting can be a bit scary, and the hacking threat always looms no matter what. Yet our statistics say that more than 70% of users play our Castle Defense on mobile.

Today, my question has got to the next level — How can one build a healthy and sustainable Web3 Esports mobile platform, solving all the bottom-line issues?

Is the P2E game really sustainable in the long run?

How can one make this Web3 gaming platform profitable for all stakeholders (the developer/investor/players)?

Is it really necessary to play games on-chain all the time?

How to push up players’ mining token’s price, preventing inflation — single tokenomics or dual tokenomics?

POC utility and burning mechanism

Here are the answers from my experiences (after trials and errors) with Pocket Arena.

Today Pocket Arena runs on a database and Hyperledger, which is a private blockchain. If a user wins enough XP by playing Castle Defense, the XP can be converted to POC, and POC can be cashed out; POC is the ERC20/BEP20 utility token of Pocket Arena.

There are upcoming major utilities of POC to be burned within this game, such as upgrading Castle, trading Castles, and Strategy trading. Also, all the NFTs in Castle Town (NFT Emoji Avatar, NFT deco items, NFT buildings, etc.) will be using POC for their trading. This Pocket Metaverse is another social interaction Metaverse where more POC burning mechanisms will be in place and the unique social values are added.

However, one can still wonder if these mentioned utilities are enough to prevent the inflation? Considering most players are dumping the mining token for their daily living, and soon there will be more and more players who want to play and mine on this platform which will cause more inflation?

Another huge utility of POC — NFT gaming assets on Ethereum side-chain

Instead of dual tokenomics, I decided single tokenomics but add more utility to POC to find this balance between players and investors.

True ownership of the gaming assets will be realized when the gaming assets can be transferred on-chain and tradable freely among Peer2Peer by decentralization. That is the reason the Pocket Arena team has been researching and developing the Ethereum side-chain; this ETH layer 2 network is temporarily named Falk, whilst current NFTs are under the Hyperledger Fabric.

Thus, POC will have another big utility for its network gas fee, and the Falk will also be used for other NFT video game assets that need the ETH side-chain for their NFTs in order to expand the ecosystem. Our Castle Defense and other PA games will be the first show cased-dapps to demonstrate this Falk Side-chain.

That’s the way that POC prices can be continuously pushed up and balanced out, preventing inflation by adding bigger utility-burning mechanisms for its network gas fee.

Pocket Arena functioning with 4 layers of tech stack

The Pocket Arena as Web3 Esports mobile gaming platform would have these 4 different tech layers as the diagram above, which can be a cumbersome structure for developers, but it is the most secure, low gas fee, and user-friendly architect structure for users. Users do not need to know what technologies are used underneath.

From users’ point of view, multi-chain support ( ETH and BSC), low gas fee & fast speed without compromising security would be the most important factors which Pocket Arena 4-layered tech stack will be covering up.

Big lesson for the security of Web3 gaming assets

The recent $600M hacking incident of Ronin Network gave us a big alarm and lesson on how to architect and maintain the blockchain games’ digital assets.

This costly lesson is that we should never compromise the security level for validator nodes for transaction speed, especially when you are depositing millions of public funds. Normally this kind of crypto deposit triggers a license in most developed countries.

The validator’s server location also matters. Hackers can easily target cloud servers. Using institutional-grade servers in different locations in high-security countries could be a good approach with the integration of cold wallet storage.

Our Pocket Arena HQ team is located in Switzerland. The most peace-of-mind approach would be to locate cold storage of crypto assets in Switzerland with a multi-signature process. In addition, we are in the process of applying for a licence of the wallet depository from an European Economic Area country to be prepared for the tightening of travel rules worldwide by FATF and to protect users from these kinds of hacking incidents.

On top of having the security measures and license in place, the blockchain tech stack of Pocket Arena with Ethereum side-chain FALK would provide a great value for gamers who still enjoy an easy and fun gaming experience, ensuring minimum gas fee, safe on-chain asset transfer and true ownerships.

We aim to release the Beta version of Falk in the 2022 summertime.

Castle Defense Pro-Tips

If a player knows certain tips and tricks about a game, playing it becomes more fun and twice as engaging. In order to ensure that our users get the most out of our flagship game — Castle Defense, Pocket Arena introduces a series of Pro Tips that are sure to boost the gaming experience. So, let’s begin.

Castle Power-up Features

Castle Shield and the Castle HP are highly beneficial features of the game. When you use the Castle Shield feature, your Castle is surrounded by an energy shield that renders any attack towards it useless for 10 seconds. As for the Castle HP feature, as the name suggests, it restores the Castle health to full.

By using these features, one can stall an opponent’s attacks, recover from the damage, and plan and strategize accordingly in order to win.

Note: Instead of spending 2XP per feature, players will have to spend 6XP now.

Efficiently Revive Your Troop Using the Pause Button

Always prefer reviving your defenders rather than replacing them with new ones as reviving costs less e-coins. When it comes to reviving though, make use of the pause button before to buy more time in order to recover from the damages.

Fill out the e-Coin Pools

As you might be aware by now, e-coins are crucial in deploying troops. The more you have it, the better your defense will be as you will be earning 0.5 e-coins every 3 seconds. So wherever you see the spot to install an e-coin pool, do it; install them as early as possible.

Early Attack Indicators

After each wave, you will see a few attack indicators scattered over your screen. By tapping on one of them, you basically allow the next wave to begin before time. By doing so, you earn extra e-coins in the process.

Note: Keep in mind that if your troops are all defeated and your Castle XP fully depleted at the end of a wave, it is wise to recover before you tap the attack indicators.

Customize XP Sharing

In Contract settings, you can customize the XP sharing system in favor of the potential renters in order to get more applications for your castle. You can then choose the most qualified player to rent the castle.

aPOC Withdrawal Policy

On account of many wPOC being exploited by bots/macro/multitap users, we have come up with the concept of aPOC in order to sustain a healthy ecosystem for Pocket Arena.

aPOC is nothing but those wPOC which have undergone a prudent audit. Initially it was announced that aPOC will also require KYC process, but the team at Pocket Arena has decided not to conduct the KYC process for the time being.

That being said, we have come up with the following withdrawal requirements and policies:

Important Things to Note

  • For every withdrawal that follows the first withdrawal, the user must have a different Metamask account; a different Metamask wallet address will be used every time. The user must create up to 10 Metamask wallet addresses and withdraw via them every week. After the 10th withdrawal, the user can withdraw from the first Metamask account again. So, you see — the withdrawal process follows a cycle of 10 addresses and after the 10th attempt, the cycle shall repeat itself.
  • The POC address must be an Ethereum address that supports BEP20 and BSC Network. Until POC is listed in centralised exchanges such as Binanace, Kucoin etc., please use Metamask only.
  • 5 POC must be kept in the POC wallet addresses at ALL TIMES until the next withdrawal request. If one of the POC wallet addresses has less than 5 POC, the user must wait a min. 7 days in order to enable the next withdrawal.
  • The withdrawal threshold per request per week is 50 POC. The withdrawal fee is 3 POC per request and that 3 POC must be paid with Metamask separately.

The audit will be carried as per the following rules:

XPs earned from playing max 20 times per hour is allowed. (ok)

XPs earned from playing more than 20 times per hour is cancelled (not ok)

In case that you would like to appeal this audit result, you can do so by sending the relevant proof and explanations to service@pocketarena.com

However, please note that once the appeal case has been submitted, your withdrawal may be delayed for an indefinite period of time until the appeal process is officially closed.

Key Features of Pocket Metaverse in Castle Town

To revisit the concept of NFT Castle Town, NFT Castle Town in the virtual city of Luzern is an exclusive area for peace and commercial activities.

Forest, Desert, Snow and Fantasy are meant for battle activities, whereas castle town will be an area where inhabitants can settle down and go about their lives in this Pocket Arena Metaverse

As published in our previous article, this NFT Castle Town will constitute an infrastructure of a real-world castle town. This means there will be government buildings, recreation centers and essential services buildings to facilitate a better way of living.

  • NFT Castle Town will act as the basis of the Pocket Arena Metaverse.
  • The virtual city of Luzern will depict NFT Castle Town where inhabitants in this virtual space can go about their daily activities.
  • Users’ representation will be in the form of avatars known as NFT Emoji Avatars.
  • 155 plots are allocated for NFT Castle Town where these buildings will be located.

The above map depicts NFT Castle Town, where in the highlighted areas show the developments in progress. These areas mostly consist of governmental, leisure, and business centric buildings that will open up.

Different colors represent different types of building in the Castle Town. For instance, the ones in blue represent government premises like Town hall, Police Station and Central Station. The ones in pink are buildings that provide essential services as it pertains to the game. Green ones are housing properties whereas yellow areas are for buildings used for socializing and engaging.

Key Features:

As you can see, a lot of thought has been put into making a commercial environment that caters to different needs and requirements. Here are the key features to look out:

1. Each building will be NFT-based and some commercial as well as residential buildings will be available for sale.

2. Each building will have gamification elements wherein POC earning/burning mechanisms are embedded. Our current set of casual PA games will be customized and integrated within Castle Town.

3. Brands will be invited to build their own NFT brand buildings & branded mini-games.

4. Chatting will be implemented in the Castle Town for social interaction.

5. Blacksmith shop & pharmacy will be specially utilized to create/sharpen tools and replenish energies respectively, for Castle Arena battles.

6. Map decoration shops will be opened

7. And last but not least, all entrants of Castle Town will wear “Emoji Avatars”. Two basic avatars (Yellow/Blue) will be given as default. The NFT emoji avatar owners will have exclusive look & feel that reflect their own personalities along with exclusive benefits in NFT buildings.

How to Earn Max XP — Efficiently and Effectively

Do you want to know how you can earn XP in an effective way?

In this article we will talk about the best methods to earn max XP. We have compiled 6 steps which will help you achieve your goal of earning XP and will help you become a better player in Castle Arena.

As a player, you start earning XP by playing Castle Defense and Castle Arena. But not all XP can be immediately converted to POC. The XP which is eligible to be converted is acquired by winning battles in Castle Arena. Follow the steps below to see how you can earn max XP.

1. Get maximum daily XP in Castle Defense.

To get enough XP to play in Castle Arena, try to meet the daily XP cap of 250 XP per day from PVE Stages and Daily Challenges. XP won in Castle Defense will help you play in Castle Arena.

2. Attack as many castles as you can

You will gain more XP if you attack more castles in Castle Arena. Your XP entry fee will be refunded and you will also get the defender’s XP entry fee and land.

3. Defend your castle all the time

You gain XP for each successful defense. If you defend successfully, you will receive your XP entry fee back, as well as the attacker’s entry fee.

4. Conquer more lands

You gain more lands by successfully attacking castles. In the Public Pool, more lands equals higher XP sharing.

5. Use player XP to play more battles in Castle Arena

Every victory earns a player more XP. Let’s talk about a player share of 85%!

6. Unlimited Play, Unlimited XP

You get to choose how much XP you wish to earn every day. The sky isn’t even the limit!

Exchange your earned XP to POC

Once your attacks and defense are successful you will earn tXP. Ultimately this is the XP that can be exchanged for POC.

The exchange rate between XP and POC varies from time to time, but the current XP rate at the time of writing this article is 30 XP = 1 POC.

To put it in simple terms, XP earned in Castle Arena and other Casual Games has its use only in Castle Arena. XP that can be exchanged to POC is earned only by winning battles in Castle Arena.

Creating Successful Attack Strategies in Castle Arena

Introduction

Castle Arena is our PVP version of Castle Defense where users battle out on the virtual map of Luzerne to acquire precious lands and ultimately claim Kingship. Like in any battle (or game) it’s important to win in order to proceed further. And in order to win the battles, strategies are very important. 

In Castle Arena, battles are won by attacking and defending. When it comes to attacking other land owners, we have created a section where users can fine-tune their attacks and direct troops to achieve the goal.

Why is an attack strategy important?

As highlighted earlier, strategies are important to win battles. A good, well-crafted strategy separates the player from the pack. In order to move across levels in Castle Arena, it’s important that the player plans their strategies well. This involves assembling troops and formulating attacks on various paths. We will talk about this later in the article. 

Picking your attack strategy

In order to get ready to attack, it’s required that the player has XP in the Arena Pool. Once you are on the land map of Castle Arena, you are free to choose your battles.

Clicking on any knight on the map will show a pop up where the player will be presented with 2 options, one to Scout and the other to plan the Attack.

 

In Castle Arena before planning an attack the player is given an option to Scout. Scouting allows the attacker to check the castle’s armoury and upgrades. Accordingly, the attacker can decide whether or not to go ahead with the attack. The figure below shows the scout feature.

Clicking on Attack will lead the player to the screen to Create An Attack. Here the player can check the entry fee required for the attack, the stage selection and strategy selection as shown in the figure below.

Stage Selection

A section where the player can select any stage options from Stage 1 to Stage 10. Each stage has 2 elements, the number of waves and the number of attack paths. As shown in the figure below, Stage 1 consists of 7 waves and 3 attack paths.

Once the player has selected the stage, they can proceed with selecting their attack strategy.

Quick Attack Strategy

The quick attack strategy helps the player to automatically go ahead with the default troops arrangements for the attack. After selecting Quick Attack Strategy, the player will be taken to the next screen where the default monsters for the mission will be displayed.

Clicking on Load will lead the player to the next screen where they can review the waves in the strategy. Clicking on Deploy activates the attack, where the opponent will have 12 hours to accept the player’s attack or lose the land.

New Strategy

A custom strategy can be created by selecting on New Strategy. In this type of strategy the player can deploy troops manually after selecting the stage of their choice. 

When you select New Strategy, you will be presented with the screen that shows different paths at the bottom and the wave number at the top. The number of paths and waves are different for each stage as mentioned earlier.

Let’s say you click on path 1, this is what will be displayed:

You can select your monsters for each wave.

What’s interesting is each attack wave has a minimum and maximum limit (top left) pertaining to the number of monsters one can deploy in that particular wave. 

Moreover, the next wave will always enable the player to deploy more monsters than the previous one. See pic below:

Now, compare the two pics. If you look closely, wave 4/7 has a minimum limit of 29 and a maximum limit of 58, compared to 8 and 16 in wave 1/7.

So accordingly, one can choose the horde of monsters for each path and wave, and build a decisive strategy.

Earning XP in Castle Arena

Castle Arena is set up in a free to play ecosystem. Being a classic tower defense game, it’s important to formulate effective battle strategies. Good strategies will help players to win and in return gain valuable XP. 

There are different types of XP generated in Castle Arena. We have introduced a new XP system and the detailed explanation can be found in our whitepaper here. 

Earning XP in Castle Arena follows a series of steps. It first starts with renting an NFT Castle to play Castle Defense. XP earned from each stage at Castle Arena is divided among the Castle and the Arena Pool as per the new XP Sharing system. Then with the help with the XP in the Arena Pool, the player can wage battles with other players and gain precious land as well as personal XP, which can be converted to bPOC. 

We will cover this topic of XP earning extensively in our next article and will update there. Stay tuned to our official TG and social channel to know more. 

Future developments for Attack Strategies

  1. As we move forwards with Castle Arena, players will be able to save their attack strategies and reuse them for future attacks. 

  2. Players will be able to save upto 200 attack strategies. But doing so various attack strategies, with a varied combination of troops, can be used for battles.  We will also be releasing new monster characters to join the troops.

  3. Along with saving different strategies, players will also be able to sell their attack strategies in the near future. This means the attack strategy template will be traded in the Castle Market for POC.

bPOC withdrawal policy

In this updated guide we will discuss how bPOC can be withdrawn, its withdrawal threshold, fees and other relevant information.

bPOC is the shortened version of battle POC which is the converted version of tXP which is acquired in Castle Arena.

If users want to withdraw their earned bPOC, there are certain guidelines to keep in mind. These guidelines are listed as follows:

  1. Since we are in the BETA stage of bPOC withdrawal, there is no KYC required at the moment.
  2. The threshold to withdraw bPOC is 50 POC per withdrawal. There is no weekly limit on withdrawal.
  3. A withdrawal fee of 3 POC per withdrawal is applicable. This withdrawal fee is paid separately with MetaMask to PA Operations wallet address (not deducted from PA Wallet).
  4. There is no withdrawal tax.
  5. MOST IMPORTANTLY, for subsequent withdrawals, the same wallet must be used and a minimum of 5 POC must be continuously remained in the wallet since the previous withdrawal. IF NOT, you will be restricted from withdrawal. That means if you withdraw 50POC, you need to only sell 45POC and leave 5POC in that wallet address until the next withdrawal.

Also note that the Metamask wallet address must be an Ethereum address that supports the BEP20 standard for the BSC network.

Important Note: Please use METAMASK ONLY. We will NOT be responsible for any POC loss if you input the wrong address.

Audit for bPOC is not required at the moment. We are working to automate the bPOC withdrawal process. It can take some more time to make it 100% automatic & safe, but we are getting there.

With regards to wPOC (soon to be transferred to aPOC — after audit), the audit is yet to be performed, and it is planned to be done in March.

Details mentioned in this guide are subject to change at any time with/without prior notice. Please follow our social media channels and TG for more information.
