Versus Mode Whitepaper
Updated February 2022
Versus Mode is a Play to earn game on the Solana blockchain, players will collect cards (NFTs) and battle PVP for staked rewards. The NFT itself will act as a unique store of value with rarer cards having more powerful stats and thus be worth more.
Players will take it in turns to select a category to battle in (Age, Influence, Fame, Power, Combat, Magic, and Rarity), the one with the highest stat wins that round best of 4 rounds, if a tie the rarity score will decide the winner.
A running story will be played out in-game with a daily graphic novel scene being presented to players creating lore and engaging players with characters. Places characters, weapons, and all different manors of lore will be used as bonus cards that will be made randomly available for players to use to boost their NFTs stats in-game. The graphic novel cut scenes will also be made into NFT's and can be collected by fans.
The universe has a player-owned economy where players can truly own, buy, sell, and trade resources they earn in the game through skilled-gameplay, crafting and contributions to the ecosystem.
Land will be available to purchase in the form of an NFT this will provide owners with passive income of a resource. Resources can be traded or will be combined to craft bonus cards, army units and breed new player cards. A faction mode will be introduced where different factions fight for control of the map and its resources. Land owners will pledge allegiance to first a Kingdom then a faction, if their land is occupied by either a rival faction or Kingdom production penalties will apply on that land, incentivizing landowners to back factions in their area.
Factions will be granted the land owners production penalty as a bonus, incentivizing them to take land that is not pledged to them. Factions will only be able to craft certain army units and bonus cards if they own land with that production bonus.
Economy & Tokenomics
A key difference between Versus Mode and a traditional game is that Blockchain economic design unlocks the ability to have complex player-owned economies and reward players who are able to reach advanced levels of skill. Players are able to have fun and work towards ambitious goals while simultaneously earning potential resources that will have real monetary value due to an open economic system and demand from other players - “Play-and-Earn”.
Players will be able to gain more resources to advance in the game by taking actions such as:
Competing in Battles to win leaderboard prizes and $VM or $MANP or $CRAFT
