In the past 24hours we have read many complaints and some false assumptions coming from some players, we are totally conscious that our last decision was a little shock for the drugwars community. So this announcement will help you to see clearer about what we want to achieve and why we choose to take this decision.
Are we leaving Steem?
Hell no! WE ARE STEEM, all of our plans for the coming years are based on Steem. We suggest you to read this post : https://steemit.com/future/@futureshock/futureshock-leading-the-way-for-world-innovators-revolution-leaders-life-entrepreneurs
But I dont get it, you said you will use FUTURE?
Using another token does not mean using another blockchain. For your information, Steem is a blockchain, and STEEM is a token like SBD is. FUTURE is also a token and will work in complementary to the Steem Blockchain. It is also the first step of our cross blockchain implementation and a collaboration to bring more awareness around Steem.
Why your own token?
This is probably the first question that came to your mind. And even if the answer is not so simple, we will try to explain what happened.
We have now one of the most played game over crypto. We are getting contacted by many people including investors and also trying to reach them if it's relevant for the good of the game. Beside that, the distribution and the size of Steem can scare most of investors, while the FUTURE token can give them more guarantee with a transparent and fair distribution.
Do we need investors?
There is no doubt that we need investors to be able to develop the game in good circumstance and make it great.We would like to have a better designer in the team, some 2d-3d illustrators, more developers to go faster and deliver more beautiful features to the players, and as we said we really want to make the interblockchain wars too.
But we let you calculate the gain made by drugwars and tell us if you can achieve all of this without investors. If you can do it, don't hesitate to DM @hightouch in discord maybe you can have a role in the team, who knows :)
So it's only about money?
Not at all, the token FUTURE is on a solid blockchain which is already in collaboration with Steem and which offer us different possibilities to complete the missing features of Steem to make DrugWars even more accessible and powerful. More informations about it are coming soon!
Are FUTURE tokens on a dirty blockchain?
Definitely not, most of steemians have probably already used the blockchain where FUTURE tokens are.
You guys took my money!
We didn't took your money, you decided to pay to go faster to obtain rewards or to be able to destroy some people that you hate. But do we want to take off with the money that you have spent ingame and which constitute your rewards? If yes it would be better for us to make it when the pool was at 120k+ STEEM no? Are we are bad scammers ? Probably...
That's also why we run Fundition without any fees and distribute daily STEEM to Steemians for months now, when many other dapps are now like abandonware and still cut off 10-15% fees on your rewards!
We are definitely bad scammers!
Why are you pumping your own token with Steem?
We tracked the lowering of the pool as many players did, and this decision is by far the best for the players and also for drugwars. While 90% of our players are in positive (try to find that somewhere else and I send you some chocolate) some early players and some new ones will have problems to get back their investment. With a fair airdrop depending of the Steem spent ingame and the time past on the game nobody should see any difference.
So I can get my money back or not?
Few days after the release you will be able to cashout your FUTURE as Steem and leave the game if it doesn't satisfy you anymore, this guarantee you to get at least what you would won if we continued to use STEEM as token for the rewards.
We also invite all amateurs investors to cashout their FUTURE at the launch for their own good.
Wait it's not a ponzi scheme and you are not scamming me?
Obviously drugwars was always the opposite of a ponzi scheme, some people compared it to robin hood and that's exactly how it was designed, a free to play game, and a play to win, even if the bots made by some "visible complainers" stole a part of the rewards from players, remember the number of positive accounts and try to find a common point with a ponzi. For people who threat us of scammer, we would tend to say that your *** are scammers. But politicly it would not be correct.
For people who are simply worried about the money they have spent in game, they should know that the amount of FUTURE airdropped and dedicated to the pool will correspond at least to the amount which is now in the pool. So no reason to be worried about the value that you will get back with FUTURE.
You are taking too much beneficiary fees on post!
This is something that we recognize and nobody should lost SP or STEEM while sharing a post with drugwars. In that way we are making some big changes which should satisfy everyone. Be expected to get the news in the coming 24 hours.
And dont forget all is fair and love in DrugWars!
