EVE Online’s involvement in the NFT is continuing with the latest news that the game’s developer, CCP Games, is holding an “out of the game” raffle with up to 300 Tez up for grabs. Additionally, to help with the recent 17th League of Legends Tournament, CCP is creating new NFTs around the tournament in the coming weeks and months.
In a new post on EVE Online website, CCP Games briefly talks about the NFTs that have been minted so far from ATXVII, namely that each kill is memorialized in a normal Killmail fashion, albeit as an NFT on the Tezos blockchain. Although CCP Games states that participants are welcome to keep the NFTs indefinitely for free, there is an incentive for those to sell them early, with the first ten pilots receiving bonuses on sale value.
Additionally, CCP is holding an “out of the box” lottery for people who have registered on the Tezos blockchain and have linked their wallets to the Concord Killmail site. For those players who have, you’ll be entered into a draw ending December 31, culminating in a raffle with prizes up to 300 tez.
“We’d also like to announce an out-of-game promotional raffle for any EVE players who have connected their accounts to the official Tezos wallet. CONCORD Killmail website. Previously connected accounts as well as any new accounts connected before the end of the participation period will be automatically entered into the drawing, with prizes up to 300 tez! The last day to enter is December 31 and the winners will be announced the first week of January – so come on in and join us for some raffle fun! “
It looks like the Killmail NFTs aren’t the only ones minted from the League of Legends Tournament, as CCP has announced that they will be sending out NFTs to each participant “to celebrate their progress to the final rounds. ” Additionally, the final kill and death will be minted in a “coded work of art,” and the team is ultimately minting 10 AT Moments as NFTs, which they say will have more information in January. .
CCP Games is also doubly explaining why the Tezos blockchain is their tool of choice for this, as it has one of the lowest environmental impact compared to other networks. However, that didn’t stop players from expressing displeasure about the practice, with some on Reddit calling it a “awkward” while others commented that the controversy surrounding NFTs are not simply about the environment.
Recent CCP CEO Hilmar Petursson gave an interview to The Korea Economic Daily signaling that the studio is looking closely at NFT and other Play-to-Earn mechanics, saying that in-game content “must have real-world value. ” Hilmar even mentioned the idea of a game that allows players to build retirement plans around P2E. It’s an interesting look at the mindset of one of the great CEOs who studied NFTs, despite having discontinued them in the live game (unlike Ubisoft’s Quartz).
