Speaking about the blockchain-based gaming market and the uniqueness of CSM, Daniel Thomas, co-adviser for the Southeast Asia region, CSM said: “CSM has a strong focus on becoming one of the leading providers of P2E mainstream adoption, with managers , who are able to play the game without having to pay any form of entry fee or purchase a specific token to get started, which is different from many other blockchain games. The goal is to provide players with a fun and addictive gaming experience while providing a potentially life-changing income stream for loyal and active players. The project roadmap is clear and achievable with long-term appeal and benefits for both players and collectors. The CSM team will be working with some of the biggest cricket stars in the world.”
How CSM works
Cricket Star Manager players have the opportunity to build and manage their own cricket team. As a player in CSM, anyone can create their own cricket team, start in the lowest leagues alongside other novices and, just like in the real world, climb up the divisions to compete for the highest title in their country. As a manager game, CSM isn’t a fantasy sports game per se (no hefty licensing fees for acquisition and renewal). However, to add an extra (fantasy) layer, CSM will introduce gamified NFTs as playing cards into the game.
The game will feature both competitive (PvP) and non-competitive (PvE) game modes. Managers have the opportunity to compete in league matches, win championship titles while accumulating a variety of NFT-based in-game assets. These assets include new cricketers for their teams, stadiums that can be used to host matches and more. NFT-based in-game assets will vary in rarity and utility, and will be tradable on a native Cricket Star Manager P2P marketplace. As a P2E title, players win a share of in-game currency (USD CRIX tokens) up for grabs with each game. But active players aren’t the only ones who benefit from engaging with the game. Stadium owners will also receive a portion of these tokens for hosting a PvP match.
