Goons of Balatroon (GOB) raises $2.46 million to create a unique free-to-play-to-win (F2P2E) card game metaverse

Goons of Balatroon, a hybrid 2D/3D metaverse featuring the Play 2 Earn card strategy game and land ownership built within the Elysium ecosystem, just closed its latest funding round with $2.46 million in funding boot and private. The funding included backers such as Merit Circle, Jun Capital, Vulcan Forged, Faculty Group, Maven Capital and Bullperks, as well as a handful of company founders such as HUSL, Lovelace and Rarestone Capital. The flagship product, a collectible card game (TCG), is unique in its use of intricate element tile strategies, wacky characters, and deep gameplay mechanics never before seen in the P2E environment. Along with this project, GOB is working on a ground fighting game which will also play a major role in the GOB ecosystem.

Goons of Balatroon co-founder Mark says, “With the recent increase in games to win games, we’re seeing an increased focus on the ‘win’ function, and while that’s absolutely a an aspect of our environment, we believe that the focus on creating fun to play, first, is of the utmost importance.

The project has a few notable names in its collection of partners. Vulcan Forged and Merit Circle have both put a lot of effort into the project, alongside The HUSL, Lovelace, Unizen, GSR Capital, MEXC, Synaps, Skyvision Capital, PlayNity and ImmutableX. Both Vulcan Forged and Merit Circle have advisors who help bring the project to fruition. An experienced partnership goes a long way in turning this vision into reality.

“The Play to Earn game tends to have a very expensive entry barrier, we want to onboard users for free, welcoming web2 natives to web3 without needing a wallet initially,” says the manager from the community Matthew, “They can choose to adapt their reward rates, thanks to the NFT property, at their own pace. Players are looking to optimize and if we give them the means, they will fit in at the pace that they wish.

The current iteration of the project was developed in-house with the goal of being fun first and playing to win later. TCGs are the most natural solution for NFT products, as unique individual cards already have value in paper collections. GOB intends to offer this same value system for digital assets. As an in-house built and tested digital card game, the project holds great promise for the future. The company considers GOB a hit with competitive TCG players due to its rich strategic elements and the introduction of a 2D/3D aesthetic that will appeal to players across multiple platforms.

The cross-integration of games on the Elysium Channel opens up immense possibilities for TCGs. Combining the rich tradition of a well-developed game with solid mechanics and replayability in competitive, community play is a unique approach to crypto gaming. The heart of the game is its players, and GOB recognizes this, creating a unique gameplay loop that utilizes the full power of the Elysium Channel alongside a vibrant community supporting its development.

By integrating the game into the Vulcan Forged Elysium ecosystem, GOB opens the doors for an exchange of NFTs between other projects in the Elysium chain and their own. GOB is already partnering with Vulcan Forged to develop a larger metaverse based on the TCG and land battler. The larger metaverse is a key part of the Elysium chain and will enable seamless use of NFTs in every part of GOB’s software offerings. Land NFTs and other small minigames are intended to be part of this expanded metaverse, with collectibles being usable in the GOB TCG.

At the heart of the project’s metaverse is the $GOB token. It is an ERC20 token deposited via a TGE on ETH and is currently being bridged to Elysium. GOB plans to launch the token through several public launch pads. IDO+CEX and DEX listings are expected to take place by the end of April. The total expected supply will be 750 million GOB.
