Hey, new guys here, but want to discuss something that has been talked about repetitively when talking about the Gotchiverse, the high-stakes arena.
This sounds like a very fun idea to watch whales battle it out like a roman gladiatorial colosseum, but I just want to think through this idea thoroughly before implemented.
So what has been talked about is that you could have two gotchis battle it out for each other’s spirit force. When one gotchi wins, that gotchi gets sacrificed and all of the exp, collateral, and maybe wearables go to the winner.
Do we think this is a good idea to have? I know I just joined this game, but from what I can tell from owning my one gotchi is that my gotchi over time becomes my profile on web 3 linking back my DAO votes, event participation, etc. and if I go into the high-stakes arena and die that progress if erased?
I get the high-stakes arena is fun and lowers the supply of gotchi’s overtime for those who have gotchi’s to spare, but for those who don’t, there is nothing that I have heard that compares.
So I propose a staking system that does not result in the death of your gotchi, but instead, the loss of staked collateral. You can still use your gotchi’s traits to fight and over time the goal will be to improve those traits so you can win more in the staking arena.
By implementing this you give the incentive for people to keep rarity farming for the best traits and wearables to be the most competitive over the long run, instead of being a one-time loss and you lose your entire gotchi. This way also promotes skill-based training and grinding similar to other classic games like Runescape, which has the Duel Arena, which has inspired this idea.
