Decentral Games Newsletter #32

Weekly Update - August 29, 2021

Welcome to the 32nd edition of the Decentral Games Newsletter! Our objective is to keep our community informed of development progress, DAO treasury performance, and upcoming metaverse events. Join our Discord and follow us on Twitter.


✅ Last Week’s Summary

Following a week of heavy Polygon traffic and an EVM chain split, we’ve further improved our gas pricing algorithm, transaction handling/resubmission logic, and updated to the new Polygon RPC to deliver an even smoother on-chain gameplay experience.

Last week’s development progress included key updates to the FREE Play token accrual and tournament logic, poker, and the website.

Free Play Logic

Starting on Monday, players will only be able to farm FREE Play tokens by hanging out in DG venues in the metaverse:

FREE Play tournaments are now based on the net winnings from your starting stack:

And players manually add tokens at the start of each tournament.

We will publish a blog post tomorrow further detailing this optimization in preparation for this week’s FREE Play tournaments.

Poker

Poker now features a lower buy-in amount of 400 FREE Play tokens, 40 DAI, and 40 MANA to allow for quicker tournaments.

Crypto poker is still in closed beta testing, so reach out on the #beta-testers channel in our Discord if you’d like to test it out before going public!

Website

The website now features sleek animated notification toasts instead of banners to better notify the player:

These toasts inform the player in the following scenarios:

  • to switch the RPC network if the wrong one is active

  • to use a desktop browser to play games if the player is on mobile

  • to use a Metamask-enabled browser if the player is using chrome without Metamask or Safari

  • to reauthorize the treasury after 12 dormant hours

  • to notify the player for all claims that are currently in progress

General Updates

Additionally, we pushed the following general updates to the metaverse product last week:

  • The casino events announcement UI was improved for larger announcements

  • There is now themed coin confetti during wins that makes it rain the token you’ve won down on you at the table (when you are playing with DAI, only DAI chips rain down)

Events Recap

On top of our traditional events schedule, last Wednesday the Decentral Games community welcomed Pentoshi to host the first of many casino night competitions:
