The servers couldn’t handle the community hype and demand for Gods Unchained Divine Order, as the expansion NFT card pack sale fried motherboards. Okay, that’s not exactly what happend, but there was so much demand for the Divine Order expansion that Immutable paused the pack sales, twice.
When the NFT sale launched 13 hours ago, it didn’t take long for the Gods Unchained team to community about some problems. They paused sales as the servers couldn’t handle the traffic. One hour later the sale was back online, only to again pause a few hours later. This time so many sales happened, that the blockchain had difficulty keeping up. They announced to deal with the backlog of order and solve some other issues, before pushing the sale live again.
Gods Unchained Divine Order is the second expansion of the trading card game, and the first expansion launching on Immutable X. Gamers need to move ETH over to the layer-2 solution in order to buy packs, which can be done without worrying about transaction fees. They expect to have these issues solved tomorrow AEST time, which would be past midnight UTC. Let’s hope the servers can keep up with the demand for Gods Unchained Divine Order.
What does Divine Order add
Divine Order will launch with 190 new cards. The trading card game’s expansion will introduce a mechanic called Order, making cards passive. These cards can’t attack, or take damage. However, they can buff up. Therefore players can user Order to stop an enemy attack, or protect their own cards.
The Divine Order set contains one Mythic card. It will have a chance of dropping in every purchased pack, and it’s truly one-of-a-kind. As soon as the Mythic has been found, the chance to find it gets replaced by six rat promotional cards.
What is Gods Unchained?
Gods Unchained is a collectible card game built on the Ethereum blockchain, that uses the Immutable X layer-2 solution. The blockchain stores all ownership of the cards, giving players full ownership over their own set of cards. Players earn digital cards by playing the game. When they have two identical cards they can mint these into one blockchain-based card. We call these cards non-fungible tokens, and the owners can trade, sell, or use them in the game itself.
Future game mechanics will allow users to create limited edition cards from older cards, making existing cards more rare. In addition Gods Unchained is free-to-play. Players earn cards by being active players. True play-to-earn mechanics there.
Gods Unchained will soon also introduce the GODS token. Players can use this new ERC-20 token to craft NFTs, purchase card packs from the marketplace and earn rewards by holding the token. In addition GODS represents voting power, giving players a say in the governance of the game.
