Web3 Esports Game, Wildcard, First Exhibition This Month

An interesting game keeps finding its way into my inbox and on my various social feeds: Wildcard. This month they will be putting on a community exhibition event to showcase the game, but what is it?

I initially held off on writing about Wildcard because there wasn’t quite enough information to sink my teeth into. However, the project interests me and with the latest announcement that a community gameplay event is scheduled for 23rd February 2023, I had to share it.

What Is Wildcard?

Wildcard is an amalgamation of several different game genres. At its heart, Wildcard is an arena-based esports game that appears to be primarily 1v1. However, there are collectible cards that decide your champion’s skills and strategies. Also, the team often hashtag their Tweets with #MOBA and from the limited gameplay I have seen, it does appear to be a 1v1 MOBA.

It reminds me a little of Smite — a third-person MOBA I was in the first closed beta wave for — and I mean that as a compliment. The strategy elements appear to be used in lieu of skills from leveling up, which could represent an interesting dimension to gameplay, particularly as if it is purely 1v1, teamwork won’t be present.

Details are a little sparse, but I have been able to uncover some fundamental (and honestly rather comforting) nuggets of information, primarily in their Wildpaper Lite:

These four facts have reassured me and were influential in my decision to cover the game. There is evidently a lot of time, money, and manpower behind the game, and Polygon is a great ecosystem to be in.

For a chance to play in the first exhibition, you will need to join the Discord and get in line. I expect you will see more familiar names in the Web3 gaming space covering this event, including Brycent and Cryptostache again. See you in the arena!
