Full Review of Gods Unchained on Ethereum Network: Backed by Coinbase

Crypto Games | Crypto News | Latest News | Reviews

God’s Unchained is the first competitive e-sports game on the Ethereum network. The game recently launched with backing from Coinbase, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange and wallet provider.

Currently, the blockchain game has mainly been limited to a few collectibles which can be purchased inside the application where users buy and sell digital assets just like they would baseball cards.

The game has undoubtedly caught the attention of investors, however current data shows that daily active users are still rather low at time of this release.

UPDATE (8/1/2018): Guide To Purchasing Card Packs & Get Started Playing located below.

Hybrid Chain System Backed by Coinbase

The development company behind this revolutionary game, Fuel Games, previously launched another popular Ethereum based game by the name of Etherbots . It operated on the Ethereum network as a full on-chain game where every piece of data was created and sent to the Ethereum blockchain.

However, developers of God’s Unchained took a different approach to this game by including a hybrid on-chain and off-chain system. This allows information to be processed in batches and will prevent congesting the Ethereum network as well as provide users with a seamless experience.

The cofounder of the game, Robbie Ferguson explained…

“The cards are stored on the Ethereum blockchain, however players in God’s unchained will only initiate transactions on the network once they purchase cards or transfer existing ones. All other gameplay elements will run off-chain, which will allow gameplay to be indistinguishable from other games that do not utilize distributed ledger’s. This will permit millions of users to play without any noticeable waiting down of the network.”

Most notably , Fuel Games secured an investment from Coinbase ventures within its equity round of investing. Ferguson emphasized that having Coinbase involved with the launching of the game was clear validation regarding the efforts of the developers as well as the $50 billion industry of game asset trading on the Ethereum blockchain.

Two Layer Ethereum Solution Useful, but Not Necessary for Gods Unchained

Recently, the entire open source Ethereum development community has been focusing on Sharding and Plasma technologies. These are two-layer to scaling solutions which are expected to increase the capacity of the Ethereum network to over 1 million transactions per second.

However, Ferguson stated that Gods Unchained is not relying on the completion of these two developments in order to settle large amounts of data on the decentralized ecosystem. Fuel Game developers will be building their own unique system to cope with the current landscape of the Ethereum network.

Ferguson also states…

“The impact of Sharding and Plasma will be an extremely useful development for the Ethereum network in the near future. However, this is not necessary for Gods Unchained to run well. Trading may become a lot easier with these developments, however we’ve already made the necessary choices in order to ensure that gameplay will be seamless, regardless if Ethereum scales or not. Sharding and Plasma should not be rushed and it’s much better for developers and gamers to not rush into releasing these upgrades until they are fully tested.”

Gods Unchained: The New Generation Blockchain Games

Currently, there isn’t much known about Gods Unchained, however we do know that it will be free to play. There will be a series of game cards which can be won, as well as various rare assets that can be purchased with ether. The value of these digital assets can be changed once a developer decides to release more assets or offer special deals.

There will also be e-sports features to ensure that participants get a full multiplayer experience. Like most other blockchain based games, users will be able to exit the game whenever they like and make back or even generate a positive ROI by selling purchases they make or earn.

Gods Unchained Overview

How to Purchase Card Packs & Start Playing

#1 – Connect to Metamask

Like most Ethereum based games, you’ll need to connect to the Metamask extension. This browser extension will allow you to purchase Gods Unchained playing cards. You can download it here for Chrome, Firefox, and Opera browsers.

If you need help installing the extension, check out the video guide located here

#2 – Purchase Card Packs

The card packs include five cards. Each pack includes up to one higher level playing card (rare, epic, legendary, shiny legendary) depending on the amount you paid.

Typically Legendary packs are the most powerful, followed by Shiny Legendary, Epic, Rare, and then Common.

#3 – Select Packs

Choose the type of packs you want to order and select from 1,6,18,50, or 100. We chose the rare pack to start, but was pleasantly surprised to find that we received 2 higher level cards in our pack of 5.

#4 – Purchasing Your Pack

The Metamask notification will enable you to submit your purchase to the Ethereum blockchain. Just click on the green submit button to continue.

You’ll also notice gwei, which is the ethereum transaction fee, also known as Gas. Typically a few gwei is enough to conduct a fast transaction. You can make adjustments to the gas transactions (faster or slower) on the ETH Gas Station.

#5 Pack Confirmation Order

Typically the websites will display a notification regarding the transaction wait time, which will usually take a few minutes to complete.

Once the transaction has completed, players will have full control of their playing cards as they are purchased on the ethereum blockchain and are not centrally controlled by a company like other games such as Hearthstone.

#6 Open Cards

Select the top right hand menu in order to open your cards. Next, drag the pack to the center pedestal in order to open it.

You’ll view a few cool animations and sound effects before opening your pack.

#7 Your Cards are Now Revealed

Click on each card to reveal them. Your cards will now be entirely viewable.  We received 2 shiny legendary cards which were marked by blue arrows next to the name. Three Common cards were received, which are not marked with any particular color next to the name.

Brush Up On Your Gameplay

Gods Unchained also provides you with an Advanced Gameplay strategy section , which will help you better prepare for battle with other players. I highly recommend you read up on this if you plan on getting started on the right foot.

I doubt most other players will read up on this section before playing, so take advantage of it while you can.
