The Hero Report #34 Summary (March 3, 2021)
Thanks to everyone who promptly claimed their physical decks by the end of February. For any of you who still have not claimed, or (heaven forbid) still have them out on the market, we are granting you a very very short grace period to redeem. Go to ClaimHeroes.com to claim, and feel free to ask if you have any questions about the claim process.
State of the Megaverse
The Series 1 pack opened rate has climbed up to 90.17% (9179/10000 Hero Packs, 2092/2500 Titan Packs opened). And I bet I don’t even have to say it: the Electric Genesis has still not dropped!. The Blue Wizard’s bounty offer of $20,000 USD for the Electric Genesis still stands as far as we know, so there’s another huge incentive for those actively searching. As for Series 2 packs, there are 66.92% opened (7289/10218 Hero Packs, 2571/4158 Titan Packs, 1782/3021 Gallery Crates, 2066/8000 Mini Packs).
First Strike (BCH 2.0) Burn Mechanisms Continue…. with a Finish Line!
- First Strike Burn Upgrade
For the burn upgrade mechanism, you burn any 5 cards of a particular variation (thereby removing them from the total supply) to upgrade them to a random card of the next higher variation. Remember, this only applies to First Strike (Series 2) cards. Do not burn Series 1 cards!
- Upgrade for Collector’s Edition Cards
The upgrade mechanism for Collector’s Edition cards also continues. To do this upgrade, you must burn a complete set of either 20 Heroes or 20 Villains to upgrade to a Collector’s Edition variant. You can check your collections at https://heroes.atomichub.io/tools/book/officialhero/ and you can do your burns at https://heroes.atomichub.io/tradeup/bcheroes-series2-collectors. For this burn mechanism, we have decided to institute a hard cap on the number of possible Collector’s Edition cards, as follows:
- Common = Capped at 250 each
- Uncommon = 100 each
- Rare = 50 each
- Epic = 20 each
- Legendary = 10 each
We did not have any new Ascension attempts this week, so the total number remains at 17 attempts, and 1 successful victory! To recap, anyone who makes an attempt will have a 90% chance of getting an animated Ascended Artifact, and a 10% chance of getting an Artifact of Ascension, which gives the owner the opportunity to appear on their very own Blockchain Hero (or Villain) NFT! We will keep this event going until the release of Blockchain Heroes 3.0.
As of this Hero Report, 5319/7500 (70.92%) Stonk Wars packs have been opened, after selling out in only 35 seconds! For those still working on complete sets, remember that a set includes a total of 10 Heroes and Villains.
Firewatch (Update 2.6)
Now that most of you have chosen a side (or are neutral), tonight we provided more details on Update 2.6: Firewatch. For this update, your goal is to collect and complete Gallery Collections based on borders. To do this, go to the Heroes Tools section of Atomic Hub and choose “Series 2” (First Strike). This will show you the full collections for all the Gallery Crate border series. There are 32 possible border collections (8 border art designs (Fireworks, Liberty, Clash, Rebellion, Big Brother, Gunmetal, Strife, Dirty Fiat) x 4 rarities (Common, Rare, Legendary, Mythic). Note that these border variations are ONLY available in Gallery Crates, so don’t open Hero or Titan Packs for this particular update. Also note that the Classic variations don’t have borders, so they don’t apply to this update. Just to make sure everyone knows how the process works and there’s enough time to finish your collections, we are extending the deadline to Wednesday, March 17th, at 12pm EST. We will announce the rewards for completing your collections at next Wednesday’s Hero Report.
As we shared last week, we revealed a new Hero that will only be available by staking $MEME coin, and tonight we revealed his name: Pint Size! For more information on this project, visit dontbuymeme.com. We are planning a special release with the $MEME coin team that will mark our first foray into the Ethereum NFT ecosystem. We will reveal more information about this new project soon!
The Uplift – Blockchain Heroes Community Cluster
The Uplift.Art team have started an innovative new project that combines Minecraft with the WAX ecosystem in which most of the current WAX projects have land plots in Minecraft and will be doing a variety of activities to populate the plots and earn (or win!) WAX for participating and having fun! The Blockchain Heroes team are planning to construct a 3D Genesis statue somewhere on our land plots, AND…we are looking for creative people who have the knowledge and energy to create cool things inside this new Minecraft universe. Please let us know if you think you might be up to the task! We plan to assign sub-plots of our land out to some very adventurous individuals and will be rewarding contributors with $HERO tokens. If such a project appeals to you, please apply at: nifty.show/minecraft
As we announced last week, we are extremely happy to announce our collaboration with Upland Collectibles, which kicks off from March 30, 2021. Tonight we introduced our first promotional drop, a Litespeed Block Explorer NFT. We plan to introduce 42 Blockchain Heroes to the Upland universe as Block Explorers. These NFTs will have 5 variations: Common (1 star), Rare (2 stars), Epic (3 stars), Legendary (4 stars), and Mythic (5 stars) variants. Note that the Mythics are very special, because they are able to be introduced into the Upland universe as playable characters! Here are some of the specifics of what we will be releasing as part of the set:
- Director Block Explorers
- Blockchain Heroes Block Explorers
- 3D Explorers
If you haven’t joined Upland yet, you can receive 6,000 free bonus UPX tokens by joining through the following link: Discover.upland.me/heroes
Second Upland Promo Drop: Silver Scientist!
Our second Upland promo drop is Silver Scientist of Series 1 fame. Just like the Litespeed promo from last week, the Silver Scientist promo also has Common, Uncommon, Epic, Legendary, and Mythic variations, with the Mythic variation having the power to actually play as a 3D character in the Upland game. Note that we are also dropping some promo cards to members of the Upland Discord server, so join the Upland server if you want to learn more about the project while increasing your chances for a promo drop!
NFTuesdays on Clubhouse, 9PM EST
Last night we had our first NFTuesday on the Clubhouse app (currently iOS only) and it was super fun. It lasted for about 2 hours, and was very carefree and full of lively conversation. We will be hosting NFTuesdays every week starting at 9PM EST, so please join us if you can! Our goal for this project is to create an NFT Masterclass from creators and builders of NFTs, not just NFTalk! Hope to see you there!
$Hero HQ Coming Soon!
The Discord for our official $HERO HQ is now ready, but we have not yet opened the doors yet. Once we get the final kinks ironed out, we will be opening the Discord doors to all! Please sign up for Discord in the meantime if you have not already. Stay tuned to our social channels (Telegram, YouTube, Nifty Show, Hero Report, etc.) for more details! Going forward, holding $HERO in your wallet will grant you special access to various projects. (P.S. If you watch the replay of the Hero Report, you can learn about $HERO’s arrival on Uniswap!)
Thanks to everyone who joined today’s Hero Report, and see you all next week!
