September Development Update!

September was possibly the best month so far in the history of Axie Infinity! The pieces are coming together and we are firing on all fronts. The community is growing at an astounding rate, marketplace volume is exploding, and here at Axie HQ, we’re getting very close to sharing new gameplay with the community!

Let’s dive in.

Growth & Adoption

Growth is going parabolic! Active users, marketplace volume, application downloads are all growing at the fastest rates we’ve ever seen.

The recent growth can be chalked up to a few factors:

Here are some charts illustrating just how insane the recent growth has been! We’re thrilled that our revolution is gaining momentum. We’re never satisfied and plan to keep pushing even harder during the coming months with a flurry of updates and releases.

If you’d like to monitor our growth in real time, Nansen.ai made their amazing Axie dashboard public!

Land

The Axie community is very excited about landplay and we’ve seen a surge of new landowners entering our ecosystem lately!

We’re very close to rolling out a public Alpha for land. The team is working hard to ensure that it lives up to the lofty expectations and standard you’ve come to expect from us.

As you can see from image above, we’ve made major progress regarding the player interface.

Here are some of the notable achievements from the past month:

  • Chimera now roam the map and can be battled. We made multiple upgrades to this experience.

  • We’ve made progress around building and upgrading structures. Structures can also be set to work on resource production over time.

  • Items can now merge between Axie inventories, backpacks, and a general inventory.

  • Furniture is coming!

  • We made data storage and performance upgrades to ensure our servers can handle the stress of many landowners playing at once.

Battles V2

Today we’re excited to share a glimpse into the new interface for our upgraded battle system! The design and art team are on fire — check out those cards!

Here’s what we did during September:

  • We picked a tentative date for a closed Alpha

  • Finished a framework for a talent tree and thought about clear cut archetypes for all the classes. Talents will be a way to further distinguish classes from each other and make the game more interesting and teams more customizable.

  • Named many talents.

  • Implemented the new interface into our test version.

  • Finished buffs/debuffs.

  • Discussed sound principles of card copy and how to make the cards as simple to understand as possible.

User Experience & Scaling

We continue to make good progress on our side chain solution: Ronin. This month we saw:

  • Erc 20 and Wrapped ETH support added to our wallet.

  • More progress on validator on-boarding including a potential big name from the traditional tech space.

  • Continued optimization of our block explorer.

  • Brainstormed a comprehensive list of features to add to the Axie Marketplace & wallet solution.

We hope you enjoyed this peak into our recent progress and we’re extremely excited for the months ahead.

See you in Discord!

Axie August Dev Update!

Land Gameplay, Battles V2, Ronin, and more!

August was an awesome adventure here at Axie HQ! We’re glad to see the community continuing its strong streak of recent growth and have added some additional helpers in the Axie Discord. We’ll be looking to add more over the coming months.

Traction & Growth

Our community growth has hit a blistering pace, even in the face of skyrocketing gas fees! We see this is an amazing omen for the future and are happy to see the ranks of the Axie community bolstered by fresh faces. New heroes will be born. Legends will rise.

In August we saw:

  • A 49% increase in weekly users for the Battle application!

  • A 33% increase in the download base!

  • A 16% increase in the number of Axie holders!

Please see the charts below for some additional color into our recent growth. Let’s keep pushing!

Land Development

We know that our community is itching to get their hands on some initial land gameplay! We made some major progress this month and are getting tantalizingly close to an initial MVP that we’d be proud to show you!

Here are some major land developments from this month:

  • Chimera now spawn on land and have resource drops.

  • We’ve integrated Chimera battles on top of land.

  • As your Axies waddle about Lunacia, the land setups of other players are viewable. It’ll be hard not to covet your neighbor’s life!

  • Major performance upgrades for smooth play that doesn’t overheat your device!

  • Enhanced detail and beauty for land plots and resource nodes.

  • Tested loading for accounts with huge amounts of land & items!

  • UI upgrades for crafting/building & inventory management.

  • Optimized resource gathering animation.

Battles V2

We continue to make major progress on our revamp of the battle system. The project is shaping up nicely and is looking to be more skill oriented, faster, responsive, and just generally more FUN! 

Here are some peaks into August’s progress:

  • Major UI overhaul that we’re very proud of. This has made the game more beautiful, but also more intuitive and easier to learn.

  • Implementation of some new cards.

  • Started working on a system to further distinguish classes between each other. Think class-specific “power-ups”.

  • Polished debuff system and changed some unintuitive naming such as “Aroma”.

  • Began an animation review & upgrade process.

User Experience & Scaling

August has been crazy with Ethereum gas spiking due to increased Ethereum adoption. While we’re glad to see blockchain technology being used more, this has caused issues for our players. We’re proud to report that work on our scaling solution, Ronin, is progressing rapidly.

In August we:

  • Researched and negotiated with Fiat on-boarding providers.

  • Began internal testing for a native wallet.

  • Continued optimization of our block explorer.

September Surprises

#StackedSeptember is shaping up to be one of the most exciting months for Axie, ever. Make sure to join our Discord to get real time updates and meet the rest of our community! We have some major announcements coming soon ™.
