Play-to-earn game R-Planet is rolling out a massive update for its community! The changes have a huge impact on the gameplay, experience and earning possibilities. So the community is eagerly anticipating the exciting overhaul!
Covering the Basics of the R-Planet Update
First on the list is releasing an immersive blockchain-based Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game for desktop gamers and mobile users alike. So users can finally say goodbye to the simplistic R-Planet browser game.
Starting with the Alpha version on April 25, players can join the conquest in an all-new Real-Time Military Strategy (RTS) experience. In this new version, the three pillars of the gameplay would still be available. Firstly, deciding which of the three factions to join. Then, players can proceed to build a base, raise an army and charge into battle with allies.
Aside from aesthetics and experience, the team also updated the gaming model. The new version is free to play, so anyone can enjoy the action without having to spend a dime.
However, the team reiterated that overall, R-Planet is still a play-to-earn game. All the basics of crafting elements still exist and can be utilized. Moreover, Aether, the game’s fully-tradable utility token, can be used to buy more assets. Players can purchase robots, land and other tools for adventures.
New Planet, New Governance
To lay down the foundations of the new governance token, the team acknowledged that there’s currently a surplus of Aether. So to address this and create a more sustainable ecosystem, R-Planet is reducing the market pool of Aether. The team will slash it from 10,000,000,000,000 to 1,500,000,000,000 total over the course of two months.
Staking is an integral part of the ecosystem because the team marketed it as a blockchain game with its own NFT-staking system. So with Aether pool shrinking comes a change to the staking mechanism as well. The devs have narrowed down the stakeable third-party NFT pool to 21 collections at any given time. However, the players will have the power to choose.
Then, the devs will introduce RDAO, a new token that will play a huge role in the governance side of things. Basically, players bidding with Aether will auction it off. As with other governance tokens, the more you hold, the more influence you’ll have in the game’s direction.
Lastly, holding R-Planet tokens will open up opportunities for Metafarming. Essentially, players will earn a new LP token for adding liquidity to staking pairs (AETHER/WAX and RDAO/WAX) on DEFIBOX. Then, they can stake the LP tokens for additional return on RDAO or choose to earn real WAX DeFi rewards instead.
The beauty of this model is that players will have the flexibility to transfer their LP tokens back to Aether or RDAO when the time is right.
