Web3’s ‘Immortal Chess Game’ Abandons Play-to-Earn Option Due to Cheating Issues

Immortal Chess, a web3-based chess game that allows gamers to immortalize their moves on the blockchain, has decided to remove its play-to-earn feature due to rampant cheating and abuse.

According to the statement,

Our heart lies in chess. We’re intensifying our efforts to make Immortal Game a top online chess hub, focusing on innovative features that enhance your playing experience.

While we’ll still explore web3 and decentralized technologies, particularly for anti-cheat measures and community engagement, our primary drive is to advance our chess platform, ensuring a fair and enjoyable environment for all players.

This decision, emanating from a commitment to fair play and ethical gaming, marks a pivotal moment in the Web3 narrative.

Immortal Chess was launched in October 2023 as a tribute to the famous “Immortal Game” played by Adolf Anderssen and Lionel Kieseritzky in 1851.

The game allows players to challenge each other in chess matches and record their moves on the Ethereum blockchain while rewarding players with its native token, IMT, which can be used to buy and sell NFTs or stakes for governance rights.

The play-to-earn model, a cornerstone of web3’s new approach to gaming, entices users with the promise of tangible rewards for their in-game accomplishments.

However, as with any groundbreaking innovation, challenges arise.

The Immortal Chess Game, in its quest for excellence, has encountered the persistent issue of cheating, prompting a reevaluation of its play-to-earn mechanism.

The developers, in a statement release, highlighted the importance of maintaining a level playing field for all participants.

However, the game’s developers soon realized that the play-to-earn feature was attracting malicious actors who were using automated tools to play the game and earn IMT tokens without any human input.

The decision to abandon the play-to-earn feature is not a retreat but rather a strategic move to ensure the game’s sustainability and the preservation of its essence as a fair and engaging experience for all.

This development prompts us to ponder the broader implications for the web3 ecosystem.

As the immersive world of blockchain gaming continues to expand, questions regarding security, fairness, and the longevity of play-to-earn models come to the forefront.

The developers apologized to the legitimate players and the supporters of the game and asked for their understanding and patience. They also said that they were still committed to the vision of Immortal Chess and the community.
