They shared detailed information and his opinions about the project PUZZLE ROYALE
SEGMENT 1 INTRODUCTION.
1. Could you Guys please provide a quick self-introduction for the community?
Edi | Puzzle Royale,
For sure, I’m Edi! I am the Community Lead at Puzzle Royale but I also do BD and marketing for the project. I’ve been on the retail side of crypto since 2017 but joined the Puzzle Royale team last year in November when I was approached by Aaron, our CEO, who had the idea for this p2e game!
Puzzle Royale aims to bring a mobile-casual game with retail appeal to the p2e space. We don’t intend to compete for the attention of players who are at their computer but rather help gamers and scholars leverage their downtime in transit or whilst doing other activities. The barrier to entry to our game is low enough that even parents and grandparents can participate and enjoy.
2.Can you briefly introduce the project PUZZLE ROYALE what are some of the utilities of $PUZZ ? How do you think you stand out among the competitors if there are any?
So essentially Puzzle Royale is a match3 RPG mobile came with play-to-earn mechanics. We took inspiration from games like Candy Crush, Clash of Clans and Clash Royale then introduced the p2e economy.
Our uniqueness is derived from our Summon & Fusing features. They allow players to purchase heroes with only a sufficient amount of $PUZZ (utility token) to ‘summon’ a hero from our NFT store, rather than requiring 2 parent NFTs to breed. Fusing is a deflationary mechanism to our NFT ecosystem and consequently to our player-base as it takes 2 existing heroes and burns them to potentially produce 1 stronger hero. This allows existing players to strengthen their team. Contributing $PUZZ to this process increases the chances of obtaining a stronger hero.
Additionally, our PVE game mode will be gated by an energy system. Energy will be able to be purchased with $PUZZ.
These are all features we will launch with our MVP. With more token burns planned within the roadmap.
3. Can you share the achievements the team has made so far ? what are the major achievements that PUZZLE ROYALE are yet to achieve . If possible also share your roadmap.
Glad you asked! We recently concluded our ‘Match Madness’ tournament. This was a public demo we allowed guild partners and the public to sample our game offering. We netted over 6500 players over 3 weeks, with no p2e mechanic but a chance at the prize pool. Total time spent in game equated to a 1 person playing the game for 7 years straight, no rest. Whilst scholars were the initial 1000 players, at the end of the tournament we found that they made up 25% of the total player base. The other 75% were retail players we attracted through conventional marketing or word of mouth. We are really proud of this statistic as it speaks to the boarder appeal of the game and think that it is representative of how we’re going to grow in the future.
4) Could you share a bit about security and also what benefits you provide to incentives users choosing your platform?
Security is a top priority knowing what is at stake and what has occurred to games/chains in the past. Releasing the demo served as a market test for exploits. We’ve since decided to move the game to be hosted server-side and added additional verification processes of client side inputs. As well as learning from other project hacks.
As far as incentives go for users to choose our platform/game, know that we are a community-centric project and our core team is always active on discord. Interested parties have a direct line of communication to our team and we are always listening. If face it is part of our roadmap to allow players to propose monthly new NFT hero additions. As I touched upon earlier, we don’t intent to compete for the attention of players whilst they are gaming. We aim to provide a secondary experience that supplements whatever activity they are primarily engaged in eg. commuting, sitting on the toilet💩, listening to music or even whilst they play other idle/simulation p2e games.
5.What’s the total supply of the token ? Could you share a detailed tokenomics of mainnet token’s supply distribution
$PUZZ is the utility token that most people in p2e and crypto are familiar with. There is no cap and it is used in game for functions as well earning.
$ROYAL is the governance token with 312mil supply. This will stake-able, and used as creating and voting on proposals for the project.
SEGMENT 2 TWITTER QUESTIONS.
1.Psychologically speaking, people crave customization. Character customization is a big deal in the gaming world because it pulls the player into the story. Will #PuzzleRoyale allow the player to customize their characters? Will there be any costs?
Actually we do in a sense. When a player summons a hero from a lootbox they roll the dice on the rarity of hero as well as the strength(tier) of 5 skin parts/armour. Each piece of armour — helmet, shoulder plate, chest plate, footwear and weapon range from levels 1–5. So the final hero outcome is a random mix-and-match of these pieces. This means there are many variations of each hero, so players will have a close to unique combination.
On top of the the Fusing system allows players to burn existing heroes and level up their team to potentially obtain rarer, stronger heroes.
Fusing will be free in it’s lowest form. But the option to contribute $PUZZ to the process will improve the players chances of a better outcome.
2.What is the most ambitious goal of your “#PuzzleRoyale” project?What is the ultimate vision that your “@puzzleRoyale” project is trying to achieve in the cryptocurrency market? Explain to us about that. I would appreciate it if you could share any upcoming updates with us?
Being the gateway for retail to enter crypto. We know many projects have set out to do this, but we genuinely feel we have a good shot due to the nature of our project bring a game… something that is so easily understood as well as our unique style. We’ve studied the gaming market as a whole and the metrics speak for themself. Statistically speaking gamers are more likely to have played a mobile game than not, of these players a majority of them have played Candy Crush. Knowing this and as for a retail player to be able to recoup some financial rewards for their time is ‘icing-on-the-cake’.
Whilst we originally slated our genesis NFT sale for May 31st and our game launch in late June, but we’ve since had to delay this due to market sentiment. Our existing and potential partners have be unanimous that this was the right thing to do and we plan to utilise this time to push the game closer to our original vision! The p2e space is evolving rapidly and so is the expected standard of games coming out. We are going to continue to build with our whole team in tact and when the market is right we will be ready.
3.At present, liquidity mining has triggered a boom in the DeFi market, but high gas fee and network congestion prevent users from actually experiencing the full potential of DeFi products. what problem needs to be solved most? and how will provide a lasting solution?
To combat those we’ve chosen to build on BSC where there is less congestion as well as looking to incorporate Solana down the track. So we will be cross chain distributing our player base.
4.I understand that each weapon will make the character stronger on the RPG elements, but how exactly can each of these weapons be obtained? is it only through purchases in your MarketPlace?
So the weapons of the NFT heroes are randomly selected when summoning. This equip/skin part can be tiered 1–5, 1 being the weakest and 5 being the strongest. Upgrading a hero through fusing can net heroes with stronger weapons!
5.I could see that you at Puzzle Royale have established a few days ago an interesting strategic partnership with Avocado DAO. Could you tell us about this partnership and what benefits do you expect to get from it in the short term?
So our partnership with AvocadoDAO is actually long standing and runs deep. Brendan, the co-founder, is part of our advisory team. He has been helping us refine our guild offering and we really value his contribution. AvocadoDAO was also one of our biggest gaming guild supporters in our public demo, along with Good Games Guild, Metagoons and Ancient8.
We are grateful to these guilds to be able to bootstrap our initial community and help debug our builds.
SEGMENT 3 TELEGRAM LIVE.

[In reply to Arzish👑]
please join our discord for live updates and game ALPHA INFORMATION https://discord.gg/hgqsKV4v
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 ?
[In reply to Danny Win]
the token price is subject to market forces. obviously we have considered $SLP and $VIS and have identified the hyper inflation as detrimental to the games longevity. Summoning/Fusing allows us to control player growth and thus morecontrol over the token emissions.
You have postponed the Genesis NFT sale & the game launch. Can you tell us why was it done? While waiting for the launch What things you are going to do for them to stay connected with the community? Will you do airdrops or giveaways for them?
[In reply to Lucas Bravo]
This decision was not made lightly. We discussed with our investors and partners to work out the best way forward especially cause our product is so close to ready. Delaying allows us to build more features into the game , have a better offering for players. We plan to do release regular open-beta tournaments with prize pools for players. these will be announced primarily on twitter and discord:
Thanks everyone for joining in. We are super excited to continue releasing project updates, you can demo our game from our website right now https://puzzleroyale.io/
