Those are people from our duel arena community whom all attended at the DAO discord Townhall meeting.

We do not only onboard to DCL but to the dao too :slight_smile:

I haven’t been very active in DCL lately in general for personal reasons, but I competed in the Duel Arena tournament recently and I honestly had a great time. The skill farming was relatively smooth on the land, overall. I believe I speak for most competitors that the organization was good and communicative throughout the process. PS: Unfortunately, I didn’t even qualify for 5th place :stuck_out_tongue:

I must also admit that I completely underestimated the game. I honestly thought it would be a breeze, but it has mechanics and mind games that heavily rely on the player’s ability to plan and anticipate moves. I clearly encountered players who are far more experienced and prepared than I was. I like to compare building skills in Duel Arena to building a small Yu-Gi-Oh deck, in a way.

Hello!
I have been a DCL player since October 2022. Duel Arena is in the TOP 5 of my favorite projects in DCL at the moment, and I believe that
it can become very successful and attract a large number of players in the future. I like this project and the fact that battles between players
It really forces you to think through tactics and select skills, which adds complexity and spice, and brings a lot of emotions. And what is the result
battles between players are the result of decisions and steps taken, and not just pressing one of the buttons on the mouse.
I’ve been playing Duel Arena since January 2024 and even in these past 4 months I have seen a large number of changes, fixes and improvements that
shows the development of the project and the work of its creators. It’s also nice that the team listens to the players’ opinions.
Since the start of the game in DCL, I have noticed that the online number of players has been decreasing and I hope that Duel Arena will not lose support and will help everyone
the DCL metaverse to become more interesting and popular.

Hey there, just want to show my support to the project but i’m going to tell my backstory real quick, so I was introduced to the web3 by a friend of mine in 2020 specifically about Decentraland. i had seen the potential growth of Decentraland just like others but shortly the hype ended, most developers were bad at making a good game like in bulky kind of styles, lazy to add exciting contents to keep engaging the existing players, lack of competition and find it difficulty to get started, many people lost interested in web3 and continued their real life including me. But one occasion, just a couple days after the Christmas, this little project has caught my eyes mid day for incredible it was. I was shocked about this particular scene which fairly easy to get to know unlike any others project I’ve played. I would spend countless hours and sweat into this game to get the best setup, grinding for tickets called essences to exchange for prize and even made myself to the top leaderboard like a rocket and it was hella fun and really rewarding to claim a single limited wearable not to mention many wearables which were later added into the game. Sadly, I was late to claim the first ever wearables and I wish I could have known this sooner. After only a month passed, monthly leaderboard with compensations were introduced. I couldn’t resist my urge to be in the 1st place but due to my personal matters and many players it had, I only made it to the 5th place.

I’ve watched this growing, I can say many things has indeed changed a lot in the past few month. The team actively listens to the community and keeps improving what we needs. They have brought so much joy to the game and could attract many newbies. As a user with reasonably experience over web3, this could boost development and widespread Decentraland even further.

Games need support and users need income. The reason why DCL did not grow during this time is that the style of the games was a bit simple and this server was almost the only server where we could have a face-to-face fight. Please help the community. It needs good games

It’s fun to play. I can’t understand the reason for stopping the project. As far as I’m familiar with DCL, it’s better instead of stopping this project, try to support the projects to enter DCL.

Short and sweet, I grinded Duel Arena for a bit and I enjoyed it to say the least. The game is fun and it keeps the mind busy. I do not feel it is rigged like a different game I wasted my valuable past in in DCL and that is a big plus. I like the wearables, the game itself, the admins/creator are respectful, helpful and genuinely seem like they care about their game and the community which is a MAJOR plus. Discord is always active it seems and when they get the chance to answer any questions they reply as soon as they can. Not to mention it seems they are always doing tournaments/competitions and that is just awesome to me. Keep up the good work and I hope all goes well with everyone and the game/grant!

Nais, Nais, Nais. From what you said, in case you play CSGO you’re being paid by Valve? Is that true, mr. Income?

Maybe you can say more about the frozen rewards and the discord announcement tied with this thread here?

At the end of summer it will be a year since I played Decentraland. I played a bit of Duel Arena and liked it, especially when in the beginning could get free wearables pretty quickly and easily, play against a bot first, and later added the ability to play against other players. Over time, there were more players, which made it worse for me to play. On the one hand, as in any game, there were enough players who played better or spent a lot of time in the game, thereby increasing the difficulty of the game, which is normal. On the other hand, even with a relatively small number of players nearby, the longer the session lasts, the more Decentraland freezes and lags, sometimes teleporting the avatar to the corner of the scene. When actively playing, I often have to refresh the browser page or restart the desktop client, which is very annoying when something happens during the duel arena or any other game in Decentraland. Recently, a “rave mode” or “party mode” has appeared, which makes gaming impossible, when all the textures of the game flicker chaotically before eyes along with the avatar. I believe and see that the Decetraland team is trying to fix all the problems, well, at least now it loads faster and me don’t have to wait 1-3 hours like last year just to load.

It is also worth paying special attention to how to make it easier for new players to get acquainted with Decentraland and immediately create wallets for them so that they can play fully and safely. Now it doesn’t look very good, not only is Decentraland a metaverse that is demanding on the computer and the Internet, but there may also be no one nearby who can tell them what and how to do in order to start playing the game that they saw in an advertisement or somewhere else on the Internet . The ambassadors of Decentraland, streamers and creators who are sometimes located in Genesis Plaza are clearly not coping. I see that some new players even refuse rewards in events, for various reasons due to the lack of a wallet or not wanting to create one. Additionally, one should not forget that one should not stand still and more diversity is needed, a real person is not a robot, also about the situation in the world and cryptocurrencies in general.

Considering all this, the only unfulfilled requirement is 2000 players per year and depriving them of a grant because of this looks stupid on the part of the DAO, which further scares off the creators and subsequently the players.
