Pirate x Pirate AMA Summary Recap with Shin Chan Community

We held a live AMA with CEO, Pitsanu Satrulee from Pirate x Pirate on 20th January 9:00 PM (UTC+8). Here’s the recap for those who missed it.

Introduction

Mika | Shin Chan: glad to have u here with us Before AMA start, can you introduce yourselves and the team background?

Pitsanu | PXP: Yep, I am Pitsanu, a CEO of Pirate X Pirate. I am also a CEO of Siam Board Games, the biggest board game publisher in Thailand for 5 years. We have a CMO with more than 10 years of experiences in management and 5+ years of exp in marketing. Our Lead developer has been making digital games for more than 20 years.

I was also a game programmer myself before starting a board game company. So I have the expertise in both digital game development and board game publishing.

Mika | Shin Chan: can u tell the community what is pirate x pirate in short?

Pitsanu | PXP: Pirate X Pirate is a blockchain-based NFT adventure game with a turn-based dice combat system.
Recruit your crew, form your fleet, then harvest resources or test your skills fighting against other pirates to earn.

Mika | Shin Chan: Do u have any upcoming news or events that the community need to keep an eye on?

Pitsanu | PXP: We are going to have a pre-sale of Captain, Crewmates, and Ships NFT before the IDO date of 18 Feb.

Oh, 1 phase of game release will be in Feb. And 2nd phase of the game is in May

Twitter Section Begins

Q1: Can you tell us 1–3 REASONS you need to invest in PiratexPirate project? Is PiratexPirate affected much when the market is trending down?

Pitsanu | PXP: 1. We are the same team as an existing big brand company in Thailand, Siam Board Games as mentioned. Therefore, we are not going anywhere. Thai fanbase knows who we are. We are committed to Pirate X Pirate.

2. Our game will be a real game, not a knock-off copy game from other. We will use experience to add board game element to our game. Which I think is a rare element in the current gamefi.

3. PIRATES!

Q2: Tell us a little about the ships in Pirate X Pirate, tell us how many types there are, how many pieces make them up, tell us if they can be built piecemeal or dismantled and finally tell us about the GENESIS SHIP: FLYING DUTCHMAN, how is it different and why is it special?

Pitsanu | PXP: There are 4 size of the ship, Caravel, Brig, Barque, Carrack. Small to large. As per in the whitepaper there are quests that are suitable for each type of ships.

The smaller ship takes less time to complete the quest. Larger one can go on a longer quest. But in total per day, the smaller ship will give more GOLD (we reward the more clicking amount players has to do in each day).

The ship’s durability will be introduced where it has to be dismantled and rebuild in order to continue earning by using the ship.

But it will be implemented in later phase. The most advantage for dismantling the ship will be in phase 2, where players will have to find the right combination of the skills from each ship parts to play better in the PVP.

For Flying Dutchman, we have a page dedicated for it’s reward including the part’s being ‘immortal’.
- No maintenance cost
- Infinite durability
- Can do ANY quest regardless of the size requirement.
- And guarantee whitelist for certain events including the presales that are happening before the IDO. Which will be announced for each events

Q3: Hello. How can I know that this game project is not a scam or just looking for popularity?? Because, sorry in advance, many game-based projects are only promising and irresponsible.

Pitsanu | PXP: First, as I mentioned that we are a big board game company in Thailand. All the Thai players knows who we are. (and potentially where we live). That is why we are trusted by the buyers of first Flying Dutchman presale, 490 ships at the cost of 460$ for each one. Secondly, we will have the audit done by HACKEN before IDO. It is in process now.

Q4: PirateXPirate is a random dice fighting game at its core. What is your strategy to attract millions of users who don’t like these types of games? When will the full game release, or when will the iOS, Android versions be released? Is the current version only playable on PC?

Pitsanu | PXP: We will initially attract players with phase 1 of the game. A simple NFT staking, or Quest gameplay. Where you can just let your Ships, Captains, Crewmates go on a quest to get the rewards.

Second phase is for a more complicated players who like competitions and some board game elements. There will be ranking, tournaments and so on.

However, we will not stop with just only one gameplay. We will release more game play within the pirate theme using our ships and captains and crewmates. For example, we can do a Ship racing game, A ship’s part building puzzler, a side-scrolling captains and crews action game. The possibility is limitless.

Current phase 2 of the game will be released in May 2022 in all the possible device as it is being developed on Unity 3D engine. The current demo can actually be played on a mobile device under “Desktop Mode”.

Q5: Why did you choose a non oracle system? do you have any ideas to stabilize the price later?

Pitsanu | PXP: Oracle system is only good when the graph goes up. It will attract new players easily. But it is a very unstable ponzi scheme. Once the dumping start it will always ends in a disaster. Only early players wins in Oracle system.

The PXP price will be determine by the market for its value. We do employ certain Market Making services to make the price more stable. The only time we interfere with the conversion rate of GOLD to PXP is only once at the beginning of the game. After that, it is a constant rate of conversion. The reason is that we would like the player who have already bought the pre-sale NFT to have the right amount of reward as per the amount they invest.

Telegram Live AMA Begins

Does each die have a value that characterizes it and independent scores?

Q7: -For the captain is there any difference when printing it? It says they will always have 4 abilities, do they have any other traits?

  • Members & Captains of the Legendary Crew have 4 abilities, does this mean they are guaranteed to have all Combat, Craftmanship, Observation and Persuasion, or can you get duplicate skills?

Pitsanu | PXP: Captain is always needed in order to do anything. Such as Quest or PVP. Captain will also have a very special skills in phase 2 of the game.

While crewmates will never have duplicate skills. Therefore, legendary will have 4 different skills.

The game start with you as an owner of your fleet. Start from one ship, one captain. Then you try to grow your band of pirates. And explore the world of Pirates X Pirates!

We have a trailer video on our website, scroll down one time and you will see our cool trailer.

Q8: From your total supply, the greatest portion (36%) has been allocated for Play to Earn rewards. Thank you for that decision. Can you explain how players can receive better rewards? When calculating P2E rewards for each player, what type of factors do you consider? Is it enough to participate in the game or do you pay attention to the performance too? To participate in the game, do players need to pay an entry fee or hold your tokens? P2E is a common model available on plenty of platforms. Have you made any differences when introducing that model to PiratexPirate? Please briefly explain about the nature of the user experience on PiratexPirate platform with this P2E model.

Pitsanu | PXP: We try to have each size of the ship has its own advantages. Smaller ship can do quest more often but you need to spend more time with the game. Larger ship only click once a day = less reward. And in PVP smaller ship will have more evasive while larger one has more health. And the middle on has more luck for example.

To participate in a game. There are 2 ways.
1. Buy the whole set of 1 ship (150$), 1 Captain (60$), 2 crewmates (30$x2) = total of 270$
2. Be a scholar and play the set rented out by other players. The reward will be split automatically by the amount set by the owners.

Q9: 🔵 I see that Pirate X Pirate has a new Game Play Demo (PVP) now launched. So can you tell us how the PvP mode works in Pirate X Pirate game? And is there any further guide for this Mode?

Pitsanu | PXP: Yes, the gameplay demo is now playable on the browser here

https://piratexpirate.io/Demo/WebGL/

Once you try it, it is quite self explanatory.
- Roll the dice
- Re-roll the ones that you don’t want (x2)
- Choose the skill that you can use with the dice

Q10: Read on the PIRATE X PIRATE website that to get rewards players must complete missions, and this quest requires at least one ship and one captain, Does that mean I have to buy this NFT to be able to play?

Pitsanu | PXP: You need 1 Ship, 1 Captain, 2 crewmates in order to play. Can be your own or as a scholarship of other owners.

Q11: As you have planned to launch the IGO on GameStarter Platform,
Is there any official release date that you would want to share with us?

Pitsanu | PXP: Planned IDO date is now 18 Feb on Binstarter, Gamestarter, Moonstarter and Yay Games.

Q12: Recently there was a Genesis ship presale,
How important are these ships in the ecosystem?
I missed this sale, do you plan to have another sale?

Pitsanu | PXP: These ships is limited and there will be no more of them release after the game release. There will be another Flying Dutchman sale. But the last one. If there are any remaining from this sale, it will be burnt.

The Flying Dutchman will have some special gain in the game. But more lucrative perks would be the early accessible to our events in the future. Which will be announced later as the events come out.

Q13: I noticed that the PirateXPirate platform delayed the IDO date, why did you take such a decision? What is the issue that PirateXPirate wants to achieve by postponing the IDO? What kind of market floor does PirateXPirate expect for IDO?

Pitsanu | PXP: It is due to the whole market doing pretty bad at the moment. And also late Jan to early Feb is historically bad time for crypto market. That is why we decided to move our IDO date to 18 FEB.

Q14: I read that you are a big board game company in Thailand. And I think the company will inspire the players, is it? But what is your opinion?

Pitsanu | PXP: Maybe not exactly inspire. But at least we are trusted with Thai community. And we can bring our board game experiences into the gamefi market which I believe is something that no one has done before.

Q15: Will it be possible for a user to customize his own NFT ship so that it may be distinct to other ships used by other players? Why I meant is that, can one choose his own choice of design, feautures, strengths and the internal and external attributes of the ship? Will users use $PxP to pay for this customization?

Pitsanu | PXP: That is one of the feature that we are discussing internally. However, too much customization will make the game imbalance. So we will have to decide whether the customization will be strictly to the looks only or also the gameplay.

Q16: 𝗜 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝘀𝗮𝘄 𝗮𝗻 𝗲𝘅𝗮𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗡𝗙𝗧 𝗼𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘄𝗲𝗯𝘀𝗶𝘁𝗲, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗶𝘁’𝘀 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗰𝗼𝗼𝗹, 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗮 𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗮 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗰𝗿𝗲𝘄. 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝗶 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗮𝘀𝗸, 𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽’𝘀 𝗻𝗳𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗶𝗻 3𝗗, 𝗶𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗰𝗿𝗲𝘄 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗮𝗹𝘀𝗼 3𝗗?

Pitsanu | PXP: The crew is currently 2D. But I believe it will be in 3D later in the 3rd phase of the game.

Q17: Which blockchain does your game runs ?
Do you have set your own blockchain or another ones ?

Pitsanu | PXP: Currently is on BSC. But we are approached by many other parties to consider doing a release on another chain too such as WAX or Terra or Solana. Still in discussions.

Q18: as a pirate project.
How do you intend to safeguard your users’ and their finances from cyber-attacks?
How can you ensure that these users can produce money with no risk?

Pitsanu | PXP: We will use HACKEN as our auditor. And employ a white hat hacker to test our system. We will try our best to warn players of Scammer that may have risen and take advantage of our project too.

Q19: Do we still require crew with unique skills for bonus rewards with the flying Dutchman? What advantages come with possessing a Flying Dutchman? Could you explain about these 4 types and their different sizes? Is the larger the Ship Size, the more missions and the higher the bonuses received?

Pitsanu | PXP: You still need full Captain + 2 Crewmates. But even a common crew with single skill will give you max bonus for each quest with Flying Dutchman. Not to mentioned the flexibility that you can choose a quest with any duration (6,8,12,24) for each time.

Q20: ❇️ I understand that each island varies in size and provides different resources, how many types of islands are there? What resources can we find in each of them? What benefits does each resource bring? What economic activities can we develop in each type of island?

Pitsanu | PXP: We will announce them more later soon. But you can expect it to be hard to find. And not directly purchasable on the map right away.

Q21: To Attract the Gamers for long time on PiratexPirate platform,

What do you think is necessary from the gaming platform side?

Pitsanu | PXP: We will periodically release new ship parts with new skills. So that a new combination of skills from each part will be born for each iteration. People will be engaged and look forward to any new skills that will be released. Some released will be limited. Some will be ongoing.

Q22: There are tons of Gaming projects in the market and that gives many choice to gamers! But not many of them are affordable! Most of the gaming projects require a high investment. How about Pirate x Pirate? How much should I invest to be able to play Pirate x Pirate? Can small investors afford your game?

Pitsanu | PXP: You can start as a scholar and split the reward that you earn initially.

Q23: PXPNFT’s Game platform makes it simple for users to interact, chat, and collaborate during team missions. However, how do we gain access to PXPNFT’s games? Is it already accessible as a mobile app? Perhaps for iOS, Android, or PC?

Pitsanu | PXP: Right now the demo is playable on browser. So PC and Mac is a definite yes. But mobile devices is playable under “Desktop Mode” for now. Since it is develop using Unity 3D engine. It is quite possible to release it on more platform, natively.

Q24: Which do you think is more important:

A. Community
B. Investors
C. Token Price

If all of the above is important to you, whiich should come first??

Pitsanu | PXP: This is one very interesting question. I would say they are all important. Each one is important in different phase. For example, without the investors, the project won’t be where it is now. But of course, during game release, we need community to spread the word and keep the game running. Without the community, the game will die out very soon. And for token price, it is the determining factor for both community and investors. Too high will of course drive away new players. Too low and we will lose the current player. We need to find the right balance.

So, I would say they are all connected at a different phase of the project.

Q25: How does project increase the token’s value, liquidity and utility? So that it can lead to an increase in token prices? What is your plan to make your project stable and provide the highest return for investors in the long term?

Pitsanu | PXP: We will not stop at the phase 1 or phase 2. We plan to release more games based on the same world and theme. The use case will be limitless for our NFTS. We start by collaborating with other game at the start. But we will definitely make more game to serve the above mission.

Q26: I want to support your project, Tell us more about the Ambassador Program and in what ways can we participate ???

Pitsanu | PXP: We still have some allocation for KOL left. But there is a rigorous screening process. If you are sure that you can provide value to the project, Please DM our CMO at @AomPXP.

Q27: 💢Could you please tell us about the Quest Gameplay and Is it available now??

💢What are the major differences between Quest Gamplay and PVP/PVE Gamplay ?

Pitsanu | PXP: The quest gameplay is simply NFT staking. where PVP will be skill based. The better you are, the more you earn.

Q28: I read that there are multiple type of Quests that are available on the platform,
Can you please talk about that? and what is the requirement to participate in these quests?

Pitsanu | PXP: Quest will be different on each day. And it will be different quest for each type of the ship.

Q29: Could you tell us why you think Pirate xPirate is different and interesting? What is the game’s purpose and vision? What are your current standing points in terms of being able to compete with other current NFT games where you can also earn money? What would you do to persuade more people to use your platform?

Pitsanu | PXP: Our main different would be the “Board game element” and “Pirate theme”. Which I think is a rare combination that would work for a gamefi.

Q30: 🍭 Transparency as we all know is very important when dealing with allocations regarding Projects, people usually put their trust on projects that has a transparent mode of allocations, could you please give us the Statistics of how your Allocations is going to be Disbursed?

Pitsanu | PXP: This can be found in our tokenomics. The vested tokens will be release by smart contract.

Q31: Do you have any..🌹
