The creators behind Legends of Aria are trying to breathe new life into the failed . with various blockchain features. Pay2Win characters have already been introduced this year, which you can pay for with your own cryptocurrency. Now a Metaverse prison is to follow to punish players who break the rules.
Legends of Aria has gone through difficult times. It was originally supposed to be some kind of new Ultima Online, but the players stayed away. After wanting to revise the concept for 2021, the project was bought by Blue Money Games.
This company specializes in blockchain and crypto elements and since the acquisition, Legends of Aria has switched to a Pay2Earn concept. Since then there has been its own cryptocurrency that you can use in the game and Pay2Win characters that are also NFTs at the same time.
Legends on Aria has gone through a major overhaul to survive. Many a failed Kickstarter project would have done well. More about this in the video:
Legends of Aria introduces Metaverse Prison
What is the Metaverse prison? Legends of Aria has a crime system where there are different penalties for different crimes. If you were convicted as a murderer, there were deductions in your skills and character values.
In the future, if you’re a killer, players can send you to jail with one click after killing you. After that, players in your area will receive a notification asking them to join your trial as a jury.
You will then have the opportunity during the trial to defend yourself in front of these juries via in-game chat. A judge chosen by the developers ultimately decides your fate.
The prison should offer its own gameplay: You can form gangs with other inmates or shorten your sentence by doing detention, such as collecting ore in the mine.
Your prison sentence can range from a few hours to a week. If that seems too long for you, you can also attempt an escape. Either you overpower the guards together with other inmates or your guild tries to get you out of prison.
More about .s on MeinMMO:
Is the idea really new? No, actually not. Similar systems have already existed in other .s. What is really new is that such a system is used for the first time in a Pay2Earn game.
Whether the system can really discourage players from breaking the rules remains to be seen. But what do you think? Is that better than just banning players for a set amount of time? Can you imagine such a system in other games? Write it to us in the comments.
