In the ever-evolving world of MetaSoccer, we're committed to ensuring a balanced and engaging gaming experience for all our users. With this goal in mind, we've taken a deep dive into the existing scouting mechanics and realized they're in need of an overhaul.
The current state of scouting has led to a concerning trend: most scouts have become virtually obsolete. Players are predominantly discovered by only a small fraction of top scouts with an overall rating of 90 or above (which represent only 3% of the total supply). In contrast, the majority of scouts with ratings below 70 go unused.
Recognizing the urgency of the situation, we've decided to undertake an overhaul of the entire scouting system. Our primary objective is to bring the mechanics more in line with reality, where true excellence is a rare gem, cultivated through practice and time.
At the core of this transformation lies a fundamental shift in our approach. Instead of the existing exponential increase, where each scouting attempt results in incremental improvements, we are introducing a more natural approach. Here's a summary of the changes we're implementing:
All these changes will commence on Monday, January 1st, 2024 at 13:00 UTC.
We believe that by making assets scarcer and harder to obtain, we can inject a new level of excitement and challenge into the game. Much like the real world, where exceptional talent is a rarity, MetaSoccer will now reflect these same principles.
These changes aim not only to restore balance to the scouting system but also to infuse MetaSoccer with a heightened level of authenticity that fans have been eagerly awaiting. Excellence should be earned, and we're steadfast in ensuring it remains that way.
After implementing these changes, an important issue will arise: lower-level scouts will face a considerable challenge in catching up with higher-level ones, as the latter have improved their knowledge without aging and requiring a significantly less amount of resources. We believe this creates an unfair disadvantage for newcomers embarking on their journey in the MetaSoccer Universe. Not only will they need to invest more resources to attain the same level of knowledge in a Scout, but they will also have to wait longer. At the same time, we are deeply committed to preserving and increasing the value of assets within the ecosystem, while also respecting the resources invested in advancing these Scouts to higher levels (so resetting them isn’t an option). We like to approach things with a long-term view. We think it is necessary if we want to make MetaSoccer a place for millions of football fans. That’s why we will introduce two additional changes:
We trust these measures will help balance the game in the mid-term by increasing the usage of scouts at all levels and making high-level assets harder to obtain (and thus more scarce and valuable). Additionally, they will provide an opportunity for early adopters, who have invested significant resources to improve their scouts, to continue enjoying their assets at full potential for several months until they retire.
To wrap things up, we'd like to highlight three key points that we believe are crucial:
As always, your feedback is invaluable as we strive to refine and elevate the MetaSoccer experience. Together, we're shaping a journey that's truly extraordinary.
Stay tuned for further updates as we roll out these exciting changes.
