War riders is one of those games that have great potential. As a gamer for around 20 years, I can tell when a game is about to write history and build a hardcore community. War Riders have all the necessary aspects a game should have to succeed.
Days before they host the biggest pre-sale campaign blockchain games have ever seen, we have the pleasure to discuss with Vlad Kartashov, CEO of War Riders what the future holds for us and their immediate developments plans.
Vlad Kartashov is a respectable Entrepreneur with a rich academic background including a Masters Degree in Business Administration from American Universtiy – Kogod School of Business, also he is the CEO of Cartified Inc, the company behind War Riders development. More information for Vlad Kartashov, can be found in his LinkedIn profile.
Q: Question, A: Answer, there will be some comments by me after some questions.
Good Day Vlad, thank you for being with us today.
Q: How you came up with the idea of War Riders?
A: We have been inspired by the games like Interstate 76, Twisted Metal, and Mad Max. We love crypto and this is just what we wanted to play. There was nothing like that on the market and we decided to create it.
Comment: Allow me to add one more game, 90’s gamers should remember Road Rash.
Q: Why did you decide to use ethereum blockchain instead of any other blockchain project for your in-game economy?
A: Ethereum is simply the most decentralized turing complete public blockchain out there. We are not worried about the gas prices as the users don’t play the game on the main net. The Ethereum main net is mostly used to provide security to the in-game items.
Comment: That is great to hear, I was curious about the fees issue ethereum is experiencing right now and how War Riders will overcome it.
Q: When are we going to play War Riders?
A: We are planning the beta launch for the fall/end of 2018.
Comment: War Riders main game launch will occur late in 2019 based on the publicly available information.
Q: How many people are currently working for the development of War Riders?
A: We have a little over 10 people working actively on the project as a core team.
Q: Where do you see Blockchain Gaming in 5 Years from Now?
A: At WR we always believed that players should have full control over their hard-earned loot crates and virtual money. We see the entire eco-system emerge and embrace the new technology. We see more gamers realize that trading across different marketplaces is actually a good thing and provides better liquidity to the in-game items and currency, therefore raising its value. We also foresee that a lot of gaming skins and items will be used interchangeably across different games.
Comment: Every time I’m talking with someone affiliated with Blockchain Industry, I can’t resist asking about the future of this newly created industry.
Q: I can see that War Riders is really active in social media, do you have plans to expand your marketing campaign and reach non-crypto gamers?
A: Absolutely. We try to actively bring the non-crypto people to the community and the partnership with OPSkins was a step towards achieving this goal. A lot of non-crypto people (CS GO players etc) joined our social networks. We have a lot of industry enthusiasts in our discord server at the moment and they’re are actively spreading the word. We invite everyone to our community and we hope that more people will become our advocates!
Q: Is there anything else you would like to share with us?
A: I can say that more exciting partnerships are coming and that we are going to announce the official start of our pre-order campaign very soon. The announcement should come in a matter of days.
These are all the questions we had for you Vlad, thank you for sharing with us your thoughts about the future of War Riders.
