Blockchain gaming has grown into a successful industry filled with potential investment opportunities. But the new inclusion of the Metaverse concept is allowing more common people to join the fun and check out immersive gaming experiences. After the phenomena caused by Axie Infinity, the most popular pokemon-like blockchain game developed by Sky Mavis, many gaming companies tried to recreate a similar play-to-earn experience. But MetaSoccer by Champion Games has joined the stage as a new and promising project
Champion Games, a well-known Spanish game studio is close to achieving success like Axie Infinity with their newest venture into the Metaverse. The 6-year old game studio led by Marc Cercos, Alex Fiestas, and Patxi Barrios has created MetaSoccer, the world’s first soccer game playable within the metaverse where players get to manage their FC clubs and experience a play-to-earn model. MetaSoccer is inspired by lifelike sports and it depends on players to gain experience to unlock the full potential of their FC.
What makes MetaSoccer Unique?
Unlike copycat projects that populate the crypto gaming industry, MetaSoccer brings something new to the table. It’s going to be a combination of blockchain gaming, DeFi, sports betting, and of course football.
Players can Find, Train, Play, and Earn from promising young NFT soccer players to include in your team to enjoy a realistic feeling of being an FC club manager. During “find” one could send out their youth scouts to explore the ecosystem and look for potential players. By “training” aspect you can enhance the skills of each player owned by playing matches.
“Play” mode is for developing players who are ready to win official matches against other users. Earning is possible through winning all kinds of matches and league matches. You can generate as much income as you want for your club through playing and winning the most matches. Being an NFT asset means users are the sole owner of these assets provided by MetaSoccer. MetaSoccer generated its assets securely and procedurally based on the ERC-721 standard.
The MetaSoccer team emphasizes evolving their assets which means that after reaching their peak performance by competing, the NFT players would start to age with time. There is one more asset included in the MetaSoccer ecosystem and that is Youth Scouts. They are responsible for including (minting) new NFT players into the ecosystem. They also possess a variable skill set based on which they can find an appropriate player for inclusion in the team.
The play-to-earn model followed by MetaSoccer is a successful one that brought hundreds of millions of active players on Axie Infinity. Earnings received by players are in the form of MSU (MetaSoccer Universe) tokens that requires any of the following contributions:
- Winning official matches against other users or even with an AI during a friendly match.
- Selling NFT players searched and found by your Youth Scouts.
- Gaining sponsorship and merchandising income.
Being an MSU holder opens up new opportunities for all users as they get to partake in the governance process of MetaSoccer. Other benefits include:
- Opportunity to test the newest features
- Chance to vote for significant governance decisions
- Access to exclusive NFT releases as they happen
MetaSoccer Achievements so Far:
Despite being active for quite a short while, the blockchain-based NFT game project developed and led by Champion Games has achieved a lot. Most recently, the company made headlines for raising €2 million during its funding round led by Play Ventures, a Spanish investment fund. Other than Play Ventures, the company related with Ath21 and polygon, other supporters of MetaSoccer are DAO Maker, Defiance Capital, Kyros Ventures, Parafi Capital, and Metrix Capital etc.
The team of experts who are behind this ambitious project have contributed a lot into reaching its milestones and increasing visibility around it. MetaSoccer has famous YouTubers like Reven, Willy Rex, and Kmanus88 (who have millions of followers on social media) on its advisory board. What’s interesting is to note that MetaSoccer has already issued 72 million MSU tokens during its private sale. On the other hand, a total of 18 million MSU tokens were issued during its public sale.
The company aims to raise funds for completing the goals determined for 2022. One of these goals is to complete the development phase of the video game by hiring global talents who excel at Golang technologies and onchain programming in Solidity. MetaSoccer would also prioritize marketing efforts to attract attention from its relevant audience that make up for the 40% of global population.
Audience and users of MetaSoccer are football as well as blockchain enthusiasts who are interested in generating a daily income which is stable enough to keep them going. Unlike crypto trading and mining options which are increasingly unproductive half the time.
