DrugWars! New game dapp on Steem!

in drugwars •  13 days ago

A new game launched on Steem yesterday and just through word of mouth it already brought so many players in on the first day. Created by Funditions and Ongame's @hightouch this Role-playing/ Real Time Strategy game brings something new to the table due to Steem's incentives of crypto payments and letting casual players earn even if they do not spend any crypto on it. I was and am very excited cause these are the games that will pave the way for more gaming dapps to start being created on Steem. Design, code and idea all created by @hightouch and after the few bugs were finetuned after the first day it is starting to look really great and I can't wait to see how it will develop over time, things are getting very interesting already, more about that soon.

How do you play Drug Wars?

It's quite easy, you go to the website, log in with SteemConnect and get started. You get some starting balance when you log in the first time that let's you upgrade a few income streams such as Drug production, Weapon production and Alcohol. The goal in this game is to produce more drugs than the rest, the pool is divided by daily drug production and a Heist where you can invest your drugs in and resets daily. Even without investing anything (on this account) it has been rewarding me with some Steem for the drug production my account generated just for having logged on and gotten started, definitely worth to check it out! In game you can also buy units for Battles vs other Drug Lords! Be careful not to leave your defense empty though as others will try and steal your drugs without losing any units at it.

In the second day the 9% of the daily pool is already worth over 190 Steem and the Heist has reached almost 30 Steem, with more players than you can bother counting already in it after the first day I expect this dapp to blow up in the next few weeks and hopefully we start seeing it on @steemdapps and state of the dapps. As excited I am for games to start being created on Steem I wanted to share this with my followers as soon as possible.

I'll be making a more thorough review in the near future of Drug Wars thus I've logged in with two accounts, one where I won't be spending any Steem and see how well I can do without and one where I spent over 100 Steem on the first day to check how the ROI is. Best time to start producing drugs yesterday but today will be better than tomorrow, if you appreciate me writing about this and letting you know about the dapp I would appreciate it if you use my referral link which gives me a 5% bonus based on your production.

Having said that, go and check the game out and let me know in the comment section what you think! If you used my ref to sign up let me know as well! This has so far been quite fun in my opinion and I got slightly addicted to it already, way more fun than some lame dice games we've seen grow out of proportion on Steem so far. :D

I saw your daily post thingie for the app on your other account and wondered if that's what it was. And it is! I'll have to check it out tomorrow after I catch some z's.

Edit: Sorry about the multiple comments. It said it was failing, so I tried again after checking SteemWorld. Apparently it was posting...just...I dunno...being slow.

@acidyo looks like I got in... I used your link so hopefully them referral booboos are kicking for ya!
Also, how did you get your referral link?? Can’t seem to find it yet!.🤔

I have been behind these days but have seen so much about the game so am looking forward to better understanding it! I used your referral link so look out for all the loot!

Posted using Partiko iOS

Haven't been able to get on here for almost 2 months, and the day I get back I see this. Pretty rad. Guess I'll have something else to kill time with now. Plus, I can pretend that I invented the Silk Road now. Yeet.

I saw the announcements moments ago, I think the concept is cool, I was still reading when I saw your post, I hope it the coming weeks it accumulates a lot of users, I'll obviously check it out, I've not seen a major gaming DAPP, but since fundition is behind this one is seriously rest assured really, thanks for bringing this, I'll share this on twitter

I just used your referral link! Let's see if I like this game! :D

This is like the third time I've seen a post about this game, i should just give it a go. I'm just rubbish at games like this tho, but I guess it's worth a try :)

Fantastic!
Used the referral and got signed up.

I'm going to sling so many drugs!!!

Yap, it's stuck a bit. Going to try it after ny job this afternoon.

PS anything wrong with magic dice?

I just don't like trusting new anonymous users.

Understand that :(

Things like dice can be cheated in many ways.

·

They say it is provably fair and markymark already tested it and he said it is fair. Who knows.

Doesn't mean much, there's been loads of stories in the past of someone from the inside cheating with having access to the server seed or faking volume with alt accounts, etc, etc. There's just so much that can go wrong and house edge is too high to bother.

Yes, some guy got a big chunk of pre tokens prior to launch.

Magic Dice is also down, the bot is still working but the website UI is down

Wow, this is so great seeing a new game on Steem designed and created by funditions. I would love to play it in few more hours because I'm some how busy presently. But it great to be here. @acidyo. New Game Exclusive on Steem.

Ok, I got into this game now myself too and used you're ref link because you were the first that I heard of it :D

I guess you made too many people trying to create their immutable character at the same time.. :p

Steem gaming is evolving! I'm ready to be a level 35 mafia boss!

Right? Hustle is real!

Since my "warning" is more likely to be read here then on my blog:

Please be careful when putting money in this game. The reward mechanic looks very sketchy.
The game is free to play meaning your daily drug production % of total (determines your daily dividend) will reduce once bot accounts start jumping in taking daily drug production % for free while YOU pay to fill up the reward fund so you can keep on increasing your drug production %.
You will be chasing your investment and youll never be able to catch it while the dev keeps on putting funds in his pocket.

So yeah, be careful before you start putting cash in.

·

Fair warning for sure. But of course there are scores of games like this that are freemium/pay-to-win that return no revenue to users at all. So yes, approach it as a game, not an investment... but any return at all is an interesting mechanic enabled by tokens/blockchain.

·
·

My fear is that people that missed out on Steem monsters will see this as the next thing to make money off. This is another beast completely.
If your approaching this as a GAME, then its fine, but if you start putting money in and looking at this as an investment, you will be sorely dissapointed when free players and bot abuse starts and your investment slowly dissolves.

I know you said it's an RPG/RTS but are you sure it's not an idle game? Kinda looks like it from the screenshot and description.

Also, what's up with all these dapp games and winning real money or a getting ROI? When I start up a video game to play, I don't do it with the expectation of getting paid or as a hustle. Whatever happened to playing a game just for the fun of it?

·

Idle game is the right classification for sure.

Hey @acidyo I used your link but so far it’s stuck at “creating your immutable character...”
Maybe I didn’t
Do
Something right?

Probably to many people trying to create their immutable character at the same time..

Seems others are stuck on this part too, will report it on their discord!

·

It's having a few glitch currently, I think

Howdy sir acidyo! well this is brilliant! I love the concept and gives me hope for the future of Steem and steemit as more games are developed and run here, thanks for the encouraging post!

Refused to load beyond “creating your immutable character” on my iPad Pro.

·

Same here! I'm waiting!

·

Closing tab and opening it in a new tab a little later did it for me.

I started this morning, it's going to be a success, too bad I see your article just now could not use your link

I just signed up using your link. This looks to be a fun game, thanks for sharing about it.

Congratulations, this post was rewarded with a SteemGC Upvote!

Magic Dice has rewarded your post with a 21% upvote. Thanks for playing Magic Dice.

This post has been included in the latest edition of SoS Daily News - a digest of all you need to know about the State of Steem.

I start with your link

This really looks like it has a lot of potential and it shows how much Steemit is growing in the right direction. I used your referral link and entered the game but unfortunately the game doesn't load. It's been more than 15 minutes now and all I get is a spinning circle on the welcome page. I certainly understand that we are only at the beginning and there will be bugs to fix. I don't know if the referral link was successfully applied.

Today the referrals were fixed and I was able to add you! Thanks again for the heads up! This is by far the best blockchain game out there, in my opinion!
