Degen’s guide to Meekolony

Excellent choice for aping on this amazing NFT game project! Now it’s time to learn the basics so you can enjoy your Meeko to the fullest. Not a deep dive, but covers enough with what you need to know in a concentrated source. The frequency of people that hop in discord get flustered with figuring out the game got me going on making a guide. Time to break the mental clutter away and finally get you started on playing the game daily, hopefully.

I - Introduction

I’ll save myself the long info about this project since the whitepaper (58 pages of pure bliss), weekly development updates via Blogs and official website speaks for itself. The Avatar phase has been rolled out, management is active and on time with their roadmap. This will be a RPG game with auto-battler, what a relief.

There’s a lot to memorize and quite a bit of work to play via commands but these are all temporary. When the game matures in development, playing via Discord will start to become an option.

Game integration: Discord > Browser > Mobile (Q4)
Staking is coming soon (Target date: End of March)
Tatsumeeko - Pets (Web2)
Meekolony - Avatar with NFTs (Web3)
Both are live and playable in Discord via commands.
Meekolony NFTs comes with free subscription but varies in tiers, depending on how many you hold. Sub has perks and extra bonuses. (NFT sub — not yet enabled)

Subscription Tiers: 1 NFT = Supporter | 3 NFTs = Supporter+ | 8 NFTs = Supporter++

Meekolony can be played without spending money or owning NFTs (B̶y̶e̶P̶a̶y̶2̶E̶a̶r̶n̶), but the NFTs give a lot of value and perks for the holder. Will have a Play to Earn system that’s currently being carefully planned and managed by the project. For the meantime, it runs on web2 ecosystem.

VII - Personal tips

  • [Meekolony NFT] Rarity rank doesn’t matter, only in trait supply. All of them are considered as “genesis”. Aura is the most important of all since it’s exclusively limited to NFTs and nowhere else, choose what you like best. There will always be new and better clothes and gears but not Aura. All NFTs share equal privileges and benefits. There are special seasonal item and accessory airdrops for all NFT holders.
  • [Trading] If you are in need of quick bulk credits and considering the cash route, I suggest buying the Monthly Supporter Bundles. They are the best in trading value with other players, usually go around 300,000 - 450,000 credits per bundle. Gets more expensive when they are no longer available in shop. When trading with Tokens, the ratio is 1:60–100 credits.
  • [Financial Advice] I don’t think you degens understand what the flip MEEKOLONY are. This is the MEE version of KOLONY. You finally made a good fcking choice on an NFT project and are lowballing yourself? Go ahead then and paperhand all your fkin KOLONY, you’re ngmi anyways. I’ll gladly scoop up all your cheap MEEKOLONY and fk your sister and your dad with my MEEKOLONY in the back that I get from this masterpiece of a project. You could’ve had generational wealth but you FUMBLED the bag AGAIN.
