Homeland's Reward Renaissance
The Homeland Beta is about to begin!
The Homeland Beta is about to begin! Today, we’d like to show you our plans for increasing DAU through amped up rewards during this phase of gameplay.
Players that actively play their plots can earn more rewards than ever, through a combination of greater daily emissions, Moonfall, Moonbeam, and rewards from various quests and events!
This boost to in-game rewards will be fueled by the AXS formerly used for land staking. Land staking rewards will end when Beta begins. The total reward pool will be 190,000 AXS/month, reducing AXS inflation from land by approximately 40%.
If everything goes according to plan, the Homeland Beta will go LIVE on January 24th around 7 PM PH time / 6 AM EST!
Over the past week, we shared some thoughts around this next phase of Homeland’s development. We also leaked a few gameplay features that will go LIVE with the Beta, including a Land Delegation marketplace, NFT axie integration, material quality, and an updated AXS reward loop. This of course is all on top of a major graphical overhaul for the game! Today, we’d like to show you why earning potential for real Homeland players during Beta will be the best it’s ever been! Let’s talk about Homeland rewards, and how we hope to gather a larger volume of player feedback via more daily active plots and users:
Homeland Beta AXS Loop
Last week, we shared the reasons behind the focus on one particular metric during the Homeland Beta: the % of active plots in Lunacia – AKA the plot utilization ratio. This is a key metric, because it shows us the relationship between land plots and real players. We’re experimenting with a beefy reward structure to encourage a more diverse playerbase. Here’s how we’ll coordinate the plot utilization ratio with increased playtime during Homeland’s Beta:
Note : Daily Cap only applies to plot specific earnings from gathering, crafting, and battles and does not include special earnings from Moonfall or Moonbeam.
First, we’re giving each player a lot more earning potential. The daily earning cap on each plot is now 2.7x higher than it was during Pre-Beta. In addition, Moonfalls, Moonbeam, Quests, and Events are some of the additional ways to earn and win more rewards. 45 daily prizes are now up for grabs, and with that the Moonfall reward pool has increased by 2.4x! That means there are more rewards up for grabs during Homeland’s Beta phase for each active plot.
Second, part of the difference between actual AXS earned and each plot’s daily cap will continue to accumulate into Moonbeam rewards everyday. The rest of the rewards will go back into the game through special events and leaderboard prizes.
Axie is the #1 Web3 gaming IP of all time, and continues to show the world what’s possible when millions of gamers have digital property rights. We are deeply committed to both Homeland as a core ecosystem gaming experience and Land plots as foundational digital property inside Lunacia. It’s the reason we’ve dramatically increased in-game rewards – to encourage play and feedback. Land owners who have held their AXS are aligned with us on this. So, it’s time to talk about staking rewards.
Land Staking Rewards
We rolled out Land Staking on July 1st, 2022. This gave landowners the opportunity to earn AXS by staking their Land plots! It was a way to reward patient plot investors while we did alpha and pre-beta development of Homeland. However, it was always intended to serve as a temporary, stop-gap measure. Today, the time has come to reward active gameplay – like we promised a year and a half ago. While we understand that this is a big change for many landowners, especially for those who hold multiple plots, we now have a delegation system in place to allow owners to earn rewards through collaboration with an eager community player base.
It will soon be easier than ever to find a Steward and set your own reward splits. Once Beta is LIVE, go to the Delegation Marketplace and create a custom delegation contract in a few clicks. You’ll be back to earning AXS through your plot while also supporting our efforts to increase Homeland DAU. You’ll also be able to choose an end date to the contract, add permissions on your plot, and delegate more than one plot at a time.
Thank you to everyone who has supported Homeland. We’re excited to forge ahead into this next Beta phase together. It can be easy to forget how far we’ve come since Axie’s early days. Today, we’re laying the foundation for even more growth through our flagship land-based game. As always, feel free to let us know any comments or feedback in Discord or on X. See you in Lunacia!
