The developers of Guild of Guardians have quite an original way to avoid gas wars for their upcoming second wave NFT sale. They will sell Epic Heroes and Energy Boosters without revealing an exact time for the Guild of Guardians NFT sale launch. In addition they will implement an early adopter reservation pool, and mint directly on the Immutable X layer-2 solution.
So what does that mean for you? There’s no need to move ETH around. All payments will happen on Ethereum mainnet, but thanks to a shopping card option you will only pay the fee for one transaction. Furthermore, minting will happen on Immutable X, which means it’s basically free.
To support early adopters, they developers will reserve 20% to the existing community members. In addition will the team drop details about the sale in their Discord, but without mentioning a date or time. As a result the dedicated community members will discover the sale first, before the news hits the rest of the internet.
Wave 2 of the Guild of Guardians Founder NFT Sale will offer Founder Epic Heroes and Founder Energy Boosters. They will sell 35,000 Epic Heroes for $55, or $40 with the early bird discount. On top of that the 15,000 boosters will cost $150 each, or $120 with the discount.

Successful applicants must manually transfer the correct amount of Ethereum to one of our two secure wallet addresses. Beware this is a trust based payment. Don’t transfer to the wrong address, and make sure you pay on time.
One problem. If you reserve an NFT through this method, it will take some time before you receive them. They are working on a distribution method, but they will have that in place late October at the earliest.
Guild of Guardians gameplay explained
Guild of Guardians will offer a singleplayer campaign in which you control a team of heroes on your mobile device. Most likely there will be four heroes in each squad, but players only control one at the time. The computer controls the others. Most likely players can switch their characters, but they didn’t elaborate on this topic much.
Even though the game features singleplayer, they promote it a lot as a cooperative game. In co-op raids players can work together, using their own characters, to beat a single boss. These will have the best loot. Guild raids require coordination to succeed and for example the power level or class of a character can influence the outcome. Each participants in a successful raid is rewarded, and therefore communication and strategy can be considered key.
Based on your team, some monsters are easier to beat than others. The composition of a team is important to counter passive buffs, debuffs and spells. While player buffs can also help team members to overcome challenges. There are also team buffs, for example by having a group of characters from the same class. For combat they got inspiration from games like Diablo, Hades and other popular dungeon crawlers. Dodging, light and heavy attacks, attack combos, and ultimate attacks need to make combat fun and intuitive.
