⚡️ AMA Summary ⚡️


  • New potential feature coming could be auto-staking
    • If set, would auto-stake the SPS you receive from SPS staking rewards


  • Potential plan is to allow tract & region claims to be split before revealed
    • So these claims would turn into individual land plot claims
    • Then land plot claims can be revealed individually
    • Allows tract/region pools to be distributed evenly
  • There will be 14 different geography types
    • Aggroed wanted 30+, Nate cut down to 14
    • Each geography type has 4 different rarities
    • Also magic-based land and non-magic land, and occupied/unoccupied land

Reward Cards:

  • No plans on reducing the total max supply of reward cards
    • Team doesn't want to constantly be adding new reward cards into the game


  • Aggroed wants to require vouchers for 100% of the Riftwatchers sales
  • Matt is hesitant as a lot will probably change by the time Riftwatchers is released

Chaos Legion Airdrops:

  • Regardless of how many packs are sold in phase 2, the airdrop drop rates for the 2nd and 3rd airdrops will remain as they are
    • 0.33% per pack, 300 packs guarantee one airdrop
  • The subsequent airdrops will have larger drop rates as it takes in consideration the amount of packs sold
    • Drop rates aren't officially announced until closer to general sale
  • All packs bought in pre-sale and phase 2 will count towards all subsequent airdrops

Ranked Reward System:

  • Team wants to do a high-level overview of the reward structure
    • Looking to improve the incentives for climbing to higher leagues
    • Will keep bots vs players in mind so bots never have more advantages
    • Always looking to keep players interested and reward those who try to climb higher

Chaos Legion General Sale Stream:

  • Team wants to do another stream for the start of the Chaos Legion stream
    • They did a very similar one for the first day of opening Chaos Legion packs
    • Lookout for a stream link on Discord/Telegram!
