February 12, 2019 – Blockchain game My Crypto Heroes has recently announced a “Land Pre-Sale”, bringing an entirely new game mechanic within this Japan-based blockchain game.
Lands are set up like countries and owners of them are called “Lords”. Any member joining a land is either called a “Citizen” or a “Knight”. An ecosystem is in place for the three to support each other and earn profits from the “Land”. For example, 30% of ETH paid by any land member will be distributed. This ratio will, of course, change depending on the volume of ownership.
Also, Lands are made up of Land Sectors that are actually ERC-721 tokens.
The Land Pre-Sale will happen from February 13, 2019 to February 18, 2019. 4 out of 9 countries (Lands) will be sold. There is a link on its website where anyone interested can proceed with the process of buying Lands. Anything that’s not sold will be carried over to the crowd sale, which will start from February 19, 2019.

The Land System brings an interesting new mechanic to My Crypto Heroes, a highly popular blockchain game. While each land has its own theme color, they still have their own UI and unique “extensions”, in-game items that can be “equipped” or used by characters and now even lands. It also has land members – Lords, Knights, and Citizens. A King will be chosen among the Lords and they will be the ones that can set up distribution ratio of Land Profits, Editing of Land-Flags, Managing Communities, Negotiating with Knights, among others.
Any player in the game is first called a “nonpartisan” and will become a “Citizen” once they choose a Land. In Knight Battles (PVP), Citizens who are ranked higher will become Knights. Knights can participate as well in “Flag Battles” (competition between Lands) and can negotiate with Lords. Both of them need to stay on the same Land during a lock-up period, which is expected to be 4 weeks.
