Q&A Session

In this section, Q indicates a question and A indicates an answer.

This is a summary, not verbatim.

  • Q: How are you going to rank weapons?
    • A: They will have a rarity distribution similar to ThorGuards. It will have its own system, though. It will not be tied to the rarity of your ThorGuard NFT. There will be 44 base weapons and 5 1-of-1s.
  • Q: Will ThorGuards be able to upgrade weapons?
    • A: We probably will not allow for the combining of weapons, but upgrading weapons themselves is still on the table.
  • Q: Is there a timeline for when the airdrops will occur?
    • A: We are aiming to get the weapons out this month. It could happen tomorrow. It could happen on Sunday. It could happen on Christmas. We won't announce this beforehand. 
  • Q: Do I have to do anything to get the airdrop?
    • A: If you're already holding a ThorGuard NFT, you don't have to do anything, as long as you don't have your ThorGuard NFT listed below 1 ETH on the secondary marketplace.
  • Q: Will there be gas fees for the airdrop?
    • A: We are looking into Polygon for the airdrop, so gas fees will be very small.
  • Q: Do you have any thoughts on renting out ThorGuard NFT skins for the future game?
    • A: We have to talk to legal, but it isn't off the table.
  • Q: Is merchandise coming?
    • A: Yes, we are working on merchandise. We want cool, good quality clothing designs.
  • Q: What is the status of using ThorGuards as avatars in a 3D environment?
    • A: We want to utilize the ThorGuards 3D model in some shape or form. It would require more development.
