The Game

Thetan Arena is a blockchain-linked Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) style game from WolfFun. It's very (very) similar in design to Brawl Stars by Supercell, if you've played that, but with one big difference: the economics.

Whilst Brawl Stars and Thetan Arena are both free-to-play, Thetan Arena can also be play-to-earn.

Under the free-to-play approach you simply play for fun, just like many other mobile games out there. You receive three heroes on signing up which you can use to compete in the various battle modes. Win, or place highly, and your level rises.

But the novelty is in the play-to-earn concepts.

Firstly, as your level rises, you receive Thetan Coin rewards. Once you reach a certain level you should be able to link these to a wallet on the Binance Smart Chain. I'm not there yet so I can't cover how well this works!

Secondly, there's an NFT marketplace where you can buy and sell heroes, including rarer skins and characters not available under free-to-play. Purchased heroes also gain crypto rewards for winning battles (in addition to those granted for levels progress).

Finally. there are Thetan Boxes. Purchase one of these to receive a random Hero/Skin combination, according to defined drop rates.

The Blockchain

Thetan Arena links to Binance Smart Chain. I found out the game from the Most Valuable Builder III results. This is the third edition of the competition Binance runs to promote the best new projects on BSC.

Hopefully we'll see LeoFinance on it one day!

My Heroes

On signing up I received these three heroes, one for each of the three hero types:

Raidon - Assasin

Low health. High speed and damage. Initial skill is a high-power spread shot that also stuns.
Think Shelley from Brawl Stars.

Veinka - Tank

High health. Slow speed. Normal damage. Initial skill is a shield. The shield doesn't stop players from walking through, only damage protection. This is kind of annoying!

Big Papa - Marksman

High damage. Normal speed and health. Longer range attack with multi-shot initial skill.
Think Brock from Brawl Stars.

My progress!

So after a few days I've reached level "Recruit 1" which is the 4th level from the bottom. Up only from here!

There's lots more to discuss with Thetan Arena but at this point I'm looking to find out if anyone else is playing and, if so, have you managed to sync up to a BSC wallet and claim rewards? Let me know!
