    Not really. The idea of NFTs and ownership is to be inclusive in bringing players into the fold so they profit or at least don't lose out on the items they buy that they no longer wish to own.

    F1 Delta has entered the chat.

    Well, intention and execution rarely intersect. 

    I feel like I really do get where you're coming from and want you to be able to realize your hope for this kind of platform. However, the reality of the execution is where I have a problem with these systems now.

    This is exactly why I think governance and regulatory oversight is necessary. Not because the concept is inherently flawed (that's for another discussion anyway), but rather because we're in a reality where the execution of these games and platforms is already underway and there are a lot of potential and actual bad case scenarios being played out. Even if a few good actors can surface, the lack of oversight will continue to allow the bad actors to flourish.

    Here's an issue for me, who can I trust to give me accurate information or recommendations as it takes a master's degree in crypto finance to navigate this crap and all I want to do is play MMOs with my cats sitting in my lap.
    I agree, seeing the large amount of scams on crypto, it's probably going to creep to most "games" that offer NFT's I would just stay away from games that offers NFT, to avoid potentially becoming a victim. especially those that asked for funding at kickstarter. for most of them, it's just going to be a blackhole.
    It's kind of like the old lawyer joke:  the 90% that are scams are making the other 10% look bad.

    Anything with NFT's, blockchain or using the term "metaverse" can fuck right off.

    Is a man not entitled to the herp of his derp?

    Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.

    It sounds like their goal is to make a completely generic MMORPG and then add NFTs to it.  And if your goal for the game part of the game is to make a generic knock-off, then you're not likely to accidentally make a game that is actually good.

    If that's not their goal, then perhaps they should talk more about the game part of the game.  What is it that they hope will make their game interesting to gamers?  NFTs won't.
    There's a surprising amount of information about the game features on their site. Probably because their token and land sales haven't started yet. Everything does kind of fall back on the monetization though. 

    Imo the game looks okay, but the 'tokenomics' worries me. Using real money for even average NPC transactions? That can backfire really quickly, and if the tokens are limited, it likely means they won't be able to give a ton away for free through gameplay. 

    If it's play to earn, eventually they'll run out of tokens and they can't issue more, what then? The initial core loop of the game goes bust and you're leaving it up to the players to dictate where the tokens go. And it would also diminish any rewards players get from land sales. 

    I dont think some developers think this through, and only look at tokenomics from the bitcoin perspective, where the scarcity of the coin helps inflate the price, but in a real economy, especially one that requires players use the currency for most transactions, not being able to issue more is a really big deal. 
    They can always later on add LB2Token that will work just like LBToken and also be limited supply. Then LB3Token, LB4Token, etc.
    They definitely could but, man, what a way to screw your players. As far as I know, no game has ever gotten to the point of needing to do this with a base currency. I can only imagine the kind of backlash it would be, because it would actually devalue the original currency. 
    They could also cope by setting the game to always give players less money than they spend.

    Kind of like how casinos do with their tokens: Individual players can occasionally earn more chips, but the system is set up so that the only one seriously earning chips is the casino while the players need to keep buying more of them to keep playing.

    Well, according to the trailer it can be fun, sometimes...

    Still can't get over that one, lol. These NFT projects need to stop going to Fiverr to get their promotional materials made.
    It's obviously the cheapest way to try to run their scam. Make it just look convincing enough that some dingus parts with a bunch of money, so they can "own" their own digital number, signifying that the particular monkey pet they found in-game is theirs.
    I like to complain about games.

    mmorpgdotcom quite obviously hates its own community and seeks to poison us all with this kind of garbage scam.

    I'm willing to bet an NFT of me doing a /facepalm that the crew here are all cryptobros.
    I believe that. Anyone working for this site must be anxious and desperate every day wondering how they are supposed to make a buck on such a slim portion of intelligence and skill. If I were in their situation I'd believe that scamming and stealing might be my only hope of survival.
