If you loved opening Ultimate Team packs on FIFA as a kid and are fascinated by cryptocurrencies, this article is for you. Now is the time to take advantage of your pack opening and trading skills to make a difference on Twitter.

There is a new game entering the market called Fantasy Top (FT).

It seamlessly merges the social nature of Twitter with a card game where users can purchase packs, open packs, and buy and sell cards to build their own decks.

FT develops the concept pioneered by Friend Tech of incentivizing KOLs and crypto celebrities to connect with retail users, and even goes a step further by tying gameplay to how your cards perform in real life.

How? Let’s introduce FT step by step, explain how it works, and highlight its elements and exciting mechanics.

About Fantasy Top

FT is a card game based on Blast.

It can be conceptualized as a social trading card game that combines elements of collecting and card trading with strategic thinking:

· Trading/Upgrading Cards

Curate social events with your favorite crypto influencers

The second point is particularly interesting because different influencers will perform better in any given period. For example, with the Blast TGE approaching, Pacman’s card value skyrocketed as users anticipated his increased activity and engagement.

Cards come in four rarities, with different multipliers:

Uncommon: Hero score multiplier x 1

Rare: Multiplier x 1.5

Epic: Multiplier x 2

Legendary: Multiplier x 2.5

FT players can build their favorite character decks by purchasing card packs or buying cards on the market. All market transactions are subject to a 3% fee. Then, they can participate in FT tournaments and win rewards.

With over 17, 000 people registered for the first major tournament, it was kind of crazy.

How does the game work?

Users can join the game by logging in with their Twitter account. Once registered, a new blockchain-based Blast wallet will be created, which users can export at any time.

Since the FT testnet has been online for several months, early users can get free or discounted card packs. Travis (FT team) repeatedly mentioned their strategy of providing excess rewards to early users.

Testnet participants can play games and test features in advance, and receive extra FAN points and card packs when the official release comes. Once logged in, users must obtain some cards to participate in the game. There are two ways to do this:

Purchase card packs

Buy cards on the Market

Once they have collected enough cards, users can choose their own team of five heroes, create their own deck, and sign up to compete in tournaments. A users ranking and placement in a tournament is determined by their teams combined score, which is based on their activity on Twitter.

In fact, major tournaments are the best way to get rewards and improve your deck. Rewards are distributed in the form of ETH, Blast Gold, FAN Points, free card packs, etc. Users are divided into five different leagues and can be promoted to higher leagues by becoming one of the top players in the current division (or demoted if they are not).

Talk about strategy

If youre familiar with these card games, there are two main strategies:

Purchase card packs

Trading Cards

Purchasing card packs is often a hassle because the cards inside rarely offset the cost. The price of a card pack is determined by an auction mechanism, which is as follows:

Price target is 0.1 ETH

Daily release goals

Therefore, the price of card packs is dynamic, based on demand and supply. If the packs sell fast, the price will go up, and vice versa. You might want to wait for demand to drop to get a better deal, but since launch, the price of card packs has only gone up.

If you’ve played FIFA Ultimate Team, you know that card packs rarely have an advantage. This is reflected in the behavior of top users, who are more likely to trade cards and only open packs when they are given away as tournament rewards.

However, users who trade cards must be aware that as participation increases, the supply of cards minted each week will also increase.A detailed explanation of Blasts new social game Fantasy Top (with game walkthrough)

Users can get more information about card inflation by clicking on each card. The higher the number, the more cards were minted.

Additionally, we can look at their demographics, income, and their “inner circle,” the people they interact with most frequently.

How is Hero Points calculated?

A detailed explanation of Blasts new social game Fantasy Top (with game walkthrough)

The heros score is calculated based on several parameters of their social engagement. Since these parameters are susceptible to manipulation of engagement and bots, FT is implementing several mechanisms to mitigate these issues:

Anti-bot systems to better identify interactions driven by bots

Distinguish between replies and main tweets

Reduce differences between heroes to make the game fairer for everyone

Heroes who participate in FT will receive a portion of the following income:

1.5% of their card transaction fee

10% of the revenue from card pack sales, evenly distributed among the heroes

· Free version of their own card

The visualization of a hero’s followers versus their ranking and fan rating is quite interesting:

This week, FT alone is expected to share over $1.25 million between heroes, with an average of 7,500 FAN points per hero, and 2,400 Blast Gold.

The community is already speculating on what the FAN points will be used for, and we will know more soon.

Referrals introduce an extra gaming element: referring a friend will earn you 11% of their FAN points + 3% of anyone they refer.

How to upgrade the card level?

Cards can be upgraded, and the points of the card will increase accordingly. Users must purchase and destroy 5 cards of the same hero to upgrade a card to the next level.

Card Level 1:

Card Level 1.5:

Upgrading cards is essential to get higher scores in your team. To do this, the user must buy and destroy 5 cards of the same hero. Upgraded cards score higher: If we observe the highest scoring teams, they all have an upgraded team.

Leveling up your hero can also cause ranking changes, which could make your hero 1 or 2 levels higher than you thought. This opens up new strategies: since each card has its own supply, is it more convenient to buy and upgrade them all? Or should you just buy the basic cards, anticipating supply shocks as more and more people upgrade their own cards and need more of the basic cards?

Those who bought cards when FT launched have made quite a bit of money as the demand for upgraded cards increased within the first few days. The current main tournament leader has an astounding team with all heroes upgraded.

FT has had an impact on heroes. If you see someone writing some bullshit, they are just hyping their own cards.A detailed explanation of Blasts new social game Fantasy Top (with game walkthrough)

FT is also one of the Blast apps that received the most Gold before full launch, having distributed over 750,000 Gold to its users. This ensures that the competition rewards will be very generous. 80% of the Fantasy Devs airdrop will be returned to FAN holders.

Whats interesting about FT is that it has zero friction compared to other SocialFi platforms (especially Friend Tech) because it links directly to the Twitter accounts people already use, without having to move to a new social network. This provides a perfect incentive for players and heroes to participate. Imagine getting paid for going crazy on Twitter.

In the first week, FT has accumulated:

Over 7,000 ETH of trading volume

33,000 users

3,400 ETH in funding

236 ETH in market fees

It’s also interesting to look at the distribution of users. Most are traders, with a recent increase in the number of “minters” (probably due to the claim deadline) and then a sudden drop.

How do we use this information? Initially, there was quite a bit of card inflation due to the airdrop: many users received discounted or even free packs and opened them en masse. This ended yesterday, along with the airdrop claims, and was reflected in pack purchases, which dropped by more than 90%.

Finally, I would like to highlight some problems about FT.

Like any other crypto SocialFi app, it relies heavily on influencers. However, compared to other platforms, it does this in a way that is completely aligned with their incentives, which, I think, mitigates this dependency. Secondly, it relies on having a Twitter account to log in. A friend of mine just had his account suspended for no reason, so he cant log into FT and claim his RIP rewards.

Nonetheless, FT has demonstrated incredible PMF in its first week (even during the testnet). Can it sustain the initial hype? I believe the team will gradually roll out more features, including but not limited to new heroes and game dynamics.

FT is the most widely used application on Blast, and with the Blast TGE approaching, expected to end in late May, things are likely to get more interesting.
