Hey Everyone, 

 

Thanks for participating in our last task on CH. Unfortunately we couldn’t reach the required 100 people to participate for our testnet game. Therefore, we have decided to lower it to 60 people, 30 vs 30. If you are the first time reading about KittieFight, here is our last task that explains what we are doing and about our testnet game.


 

Here is what we need you to do: 


 

  1. Place your email here. We will notify you when we plan to launch the next scheduled test-net game

  2. Join Our discord : https://discord.gg/rgQ5F3R

  3. In our discord, join the kty-Rinkeby & ether-Rinkeby channel and follow the pinned directions to get Rinkeby testnet  KTY & ETH tokens to be sent to your address.You will need these tokens to be able to play when we will schedule the testnet game


 

Important: Tips will be assigned to each person that goes to our discord channel and follow these instructions above. Please place you discord username with your comment, to receive a tip of 30 KTY (valued at $16 at ICO price) tokens from this task.  Some of you have already done this from the last task, so you will qualify. 

 

We also will give more tips for people you invite to sign up (friends and family). For each person you sign up we will give an additional 30 KTY tokens. Just place their discord name of who you invited in the comment or as a reply to your comment. 


 

Now for the task: 

 

We realized it was difficult to get 100 people to join the game. Our project is just a small team of developers with no real marketing experience. Due to bootstrapping this project we need some advice or hacks to find people to participate in the game to help us test the product.  


 

Questions to consider: 

 

How would you go about recruiting people to join?

 

Any specific channels for gamers where we could post to bring more people on board?


 

If you are interested to help us out as an individual, where here to learn and listen. Feel free to contact us via Telegram.


 

Thanks!

 

Cheers, 

 

KittieFight Team

I would try decrentralized streaming platforms such as Dlive as well as reddit forums on Dapps that would help find some users with experience to thses types of apps.

I think you are very organized and structured as you prepared the demo video, game instructions, discord channel and also posted on popular forums to create awareness.

To ensure high number of participants you can give an incentive like bonus token to the first 10 participants and announce this a day before the game starts. This will make people rush to join and they will remeber that they need to conenct on time.

Try maybe teaming up with a wallet. Like a promo where users download the wallet and get tokens to place the game which could also introduce apps to people who aren't knowledgeable about cryptocurrency

So after weeks of cancellations, the day finally came! :)

Good news first - loved the graphics! They were particularly smooth (except for some choppyness), but especially considering all the on-chain data that was being processed! Great job there. Also loved the idea and concept of the game itself. Using group bets to influence real-time action, instead of pre-recorded action or pre-round bets. I also like the way winnings are divided and just in general, many things here were very pretty and well thought out.

Now for things I had issues with. First regarding the mechanics of the game itself. They were a little too complicated for me personally. The combination of the random number with the KTY and the ETH was just too much. I just randomly betted to enjoy the action.

I feel like there are two concepts here that you guys tried to do both of, but may be conflicting with one another: the genes/kitty that is competing vs the betting as a factor to influence outcome. Traditionally, in a real fight (or with any sport), you consider the pre-game variables and statistics and then make a bet (either one or multiple) - but before the game starts. Then you enjoy the action, which excites you because you are able to follow the "progress" in real time (a fighter becoming more tired/bloody, or a team leading in points, for example). On the other hand, in a "real-time" game, the part of influencing the action is what's exciting, because you yourself are able to influence the actual result.

In the game both things are taking place. You need to bet for the sake of betting, but also try to use that betting to influence the outcome. I think it's a lot to deal with. Maybe something for you to consider would be to lock down a bet before a round starts, and then that bet gives you (according to the amount) a certain number of moves that you could input. And those moves, in combination with those of the rest of the group, decide the action (both attack and block). 

So let's say I bet 2 ETH and each 0.2 ETH lets me choose one move, and then I could input those moves in realtime. Something like that?

All in all, I'm glad this game finally took place. Was worth the wait. You guys still have some directions to consider, but it's a great use of blockchain and it's very special.

GOOD LUCK!

Thank you all for joing our first public beta tests. We have  enough people to start  todays game. Todays game starts in about ~ 2 / 3 hours 1:00PM EST

Gaming mechanics
======================

1. Before the game starts make sure you have enough ETH and KTY (Rinkeby ETH AND KTY ) to play

2. Its recommendend that you have at least ~40 ETH so that the game can end today between 5 to 20 minutes through collective betting/fighting of all participants. Visit here to get more ETH :  

3. The Game ends when the time runs out and the final jackpot is 10 times(10x) the initial jackpot. The 10x requirement is not ARBITARY, this requirment is needed so that the Initial jackpot contributed returns at least a 50% profit and that all winning participants share revenue/profits in a fare way

4. Here is the breakdown of percentage shares for winners:
    Kittie owner : 30% of Jackpot
    Top bettor : 20% of Jackpot
    2nd top bettor : 10% of Jackpot
    Every other winner : 25% of Jackpot
    treasury/endowment smart contract : 15% of Jackpot
    

5.  Betting is a simple as clicking the game screen and setting the amount of ETH you want to bet. The is a standard KTY fee associated with every bet

6. To check ranking within you team click :"toggle betting stats" on the bottom right of game screen.

7. Active top and second top bettors are visible on top of leaderboard while the rest of addresses are arranged in decending order according to ETH bet on the game

8. At the end of the game make sure you claim your winnings by clicking on appropriate button to withdraw ETH and KTY tokens if you are on the winning team

9. losing kittie will be left in kittieHELL as demonstration

The best way to add people is to make a massive Airdrop.

 

Any specific channels for gamers where we could post to bring more people on board?

The best options are Telegram, Discord and Bitcointalk.

Good luck!!!

since you still have some weeks to go before the day of the main test network I think there is still a lot of things that you can try out:

1. You can carry out bounty program or campaign that will see to it that this news is taken to everywhere that it is supposed to go and get to the necessary niche that is supposed to reach, some advantage of this include:

a. You will be able to get this news to kore than 1million people before the date for the test, this will greatly improve your visibility and also a lot of people will register through here.

b. the tips that you will give to the bounty hunters will be used for the entering of the game, you can put up a disclaimer that the bounty program is only for those that want to actually participate in the game, and the token will be withdrawn if participation in the game was not done.

c. you might get other forms of investors or investment through this means.

d. this will also increase the value of the token when it is complected because many persons will know about it by then.

 

2. You can use faucet to give out free token or forms like that and users will be every willing to participate in this in order to get the required token to start, this will be a very big help to starters since most starters done have any eth balance in the first place.

3. then the easiest means is to set up multiple social media account, that you will use to share the news and as such get more persons to see the program and also participate in it.

4. For me youtube, twitter and facebook will be the best place to start and also look for the right kind of niche to get the players that you will need for the test.

creating a telegram group is also good but most persons don't use that or don't use it a lot so it is not really the best to be used for this instant project.

there are youtube and facebook channel that will help you a lot if you look for them, don't really know any that I can mention but you can get most of the very active ones and do some form of collaboration between them for this purpose. there are also websites that you can collaborate with and get more players for your programs.

This comment says it all it could have been posted sooner, hope the admin gets to read this also.

TOM STEEL guru

for me these are the ways that you can go about it >>>

1. You can open a youtube page and post short videos about the game and other kinds of games like this with the various features that the game has to offer, with this others will be able to see what the game has to offer and will be willing to participate in such a game, and also you can link up your page with other youtube gamer page(s) so that gamers from there will also be able to see what is going on in your site. with this, gamers who visited these niche will come to yours and thus visit your website and then the ones that are interested will try out the game. With this also you will be able to get the right kind of persons fro the game testing.

2. Another way similar to the first will be to open various social handles where items (videos, pictures, post) will be posted so as to tell others what you are doing and thus get them to participate in the program, with this you will get a lot of viewers and from them those that are interested will participate in it.

I don't know any specific gamer channel but I think that if you look through facebook and youtube you will be able to get something that will fit your taste.

I think you should use the following strategies to get more people to join:

-> Create a Reddit group to share details about the event

->Keep the registered people updated on Telegram group so they know when exactly you start

I think there was a lot of confusion created by cancelling and rescheduling of last planned slot so this time you should go ahead even if a lesser than planned number of participants join.

1. to get more persons to participate in the program I think that you will need to do most of the things for them in the first stage to get them to engage in the program since it is a te4sting stage you can try out the strategy that was used by aeternity for their graffiti project.

You can do this by sending confirmed registered users that have shown interest in the game and confirmed their registration through some means like using Kyc means, then you send these persons small token that they can use to play the game.

In this way many persons will be very willing to play the game since they won't have to go through the stress of funding and the rest of it, then after the first try if you would like to play more you can now get token for your account.

2. Channels for gamers can be found on youtube and facebook and also telegram, don't know any directly but I know that they are not hard to find if you look for the right niche, so you can start a group on facebook, twitter or youtube post videos of your game and you will surely get those that are very interested in it and want to try it out.

Social media is your best friend. The name alone will get people interested, they just need to see it. Sharing in groups or even an ad. Or partner with a gaming Youtuber to share awareness. Twitter advertising can work you wonders to if you can get a hastag going.

Any specific channels for gamers where we could post to bring more people on board?

Twitch streamers(Popular streamers)/Youtbe Gaming community or even Reddit

"social media is your best friend" that really has a very nice ring to it.

Honestly, I don't know about the game, so I'm worried about the answer.
- How would you go about recruiting people to join?
To attract people, the first thing to do is to post a KittieFight ad on major social media (tweeter, facebook, reddit, etc.). It would be best to have a Bounty event for many people to retweet and share KittieFIGHT's ad.

Honestly, I don't know anything about games as mentioned above. I just heard from friends that there is an influencer on YouTube that specializes in games only.

posting an ad is very good because one can get up to 50k views on Facebook in one day.

Crowdholding is a good platform to start. You can recruit more users via bounty0x, just place it as a bounty and hunters will join forsure. 
If you can do a partnership of some sort with enjin platform for this event, there are a lot of gamers/hunters in their telegram group. 

Best of luck!

Well most important factor if you wish people to join is that people need to know that you exist. Use social media to spread the word :) Reddit is your friend ;) 

Also try to contact some YouTube gaming "influencer" and get him to promote you in one of his/hers videos ;) You would be surprised how much influence can people like that have on the other players. 

I do not know about your budget, but maybe also try to organize some tournaments with attractive prizes etc.

 

Wish you all the best ;)

I'm going to contact you directly on Discord as well, but here is what I think you need to do to make this succeed:

You should contact the CryptoKitties team and request and official partnership. They may be interested in promoting the CK-burn concept both as a way to get people back into the game (which has itself died a little bit) and also as a way to decrease supply of CK so that maybe, in the future, value can go up. If they agree, they can share it on their Twitter which has many followers. 

At the same time, you should start posting in various communities - and especially on Reddit - that you will STREAM the game. If you really want to make it "a thing", you can stream through DLive, where people can make crypto watching. That will bring more interest if you ask me, and of course some of the people who see that post will also sign up. 

Consider the possibility that there will never be 100 people who will try the game at first. The entire active CK community right now is maybe 12 people. Maybe lower it down to an initial 20-30 people game if possible at first.

How would you go about recruiting people to join?

I think you should look at YouTube gaming accounts. The guys over there are quite active and will make do with some sort of partnership in exchange for broadcasting to their ardent followers. You can get a spike from this.

Then there is the Cent platform. I haven't really had a personal chat with any gamer over there but I believe there are a few you can woo.

I believe there are also some active gaming communities on Reddit you can hit up.

There are lot of gaming platform out there but those hat are owned personally and those that are controled by commuities, that will be a vey good place to start.

Sorry you didn't reach your goal. Publish Ox may be a good place for exposure. Also, have you put it out on Facebook, Instagram etc? You can make a video for YouTube. I think the bonus for getting recruits will help you reach your new goal.

Hey KittieFIGHT team.  
The following are a few places I thought might be beneficial for you to share news of your launch and promotion.  


CryptoKitties Reddit group:  https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoKitties/
Blockchain Game Reddit:  https://www.reddit.com/r/BlockchainGame/

Blockchain Games Facebook group:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/BlockchainGames/?ref=br_rs

Blockchain Gaming Facebook group:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/blockchaingaming/?ref=br_r

The following are some Twitter accounts specialising in the blockchain gaming space, could be worth reaching out and asking for a mention:

Blockchain Game Alliance: https://twitter.com/BGameAlliance

Blockchain Gaming: https://twitter.com/BlockchainGames

BlockchainGamer.biz: https://twitter.com/BCGbiz

Here's Blockchain Gaming World channel at YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVPFpuyvBrILC_BeRR2cSRA/videos  It's not a huge channel but they might be interested in taking a look and making a short video.  

Essentially, the closer you can get to reaching those who already have an interest in blockchain-gaming (or CryptoKitties) the better.  :)

Just a common Crypto enthusiast.. Wait crypto is not common it's special :)

I would suggest the following to ensure better participation for your next event:

  • Post the event details on popular forums, especially Publish0x which has a very active crypto community
  • Publicize event details on other sites like Steemit, Medium etc.
  • Plan a bit in advance and freeze new entries once you have sufficient participants
  • Send a reminder on discord or by mail to participants so they don't forget. It's quite possible as there will be people across different time zone. For highest participation chose Europe afternoon timezone so even people in US and Asia can participate as it will be morning and evening for them respectively
