Anti-Cheat in Dark Frontiers

Bots and cheating are always a sensitive but relevant topic in online games — traditional or blockchain.

In Dark Frontiers we will utilize gaming industry standard approaches, as well as some more custom-tailored solutions to protect our Play to Earn (P2E) economy and ensure a fair game for all of the players and investors.

For security reasons, as is standard practice in the games industry — not all measures will be detailed. Here are some steps that will be taken to help address the bot issue, which every successful online game will eventually face.

  • Firstly, the game was designed from the ground up to minimize the impact aiming cheats would have since combat (and shooting) is a major part of Dark Frontiers.
  • Secondly, level design choices were made regarding game areas where valuable resources are placed or can be gathered so that both players and NPC enemies will have incentives and opportunities to intervene and profit from stopping botting activity.
  • Thirdly, analytics and data gathering will be utilized according to legal standards to help spot and single out players who demonstrate specific input patterns or start getting “unnaturally wealthy”.

Additionally, community reporting tools will be available (as part of the P2I ecosystem) with rewards and incentives for community members to tag players for review they deem as violating the game’s terms of service.

Finally, if additional steps will become necessary, the development team will step in promptly to implement new functionalities to ensure fair play.

About Dark Frontiers

“Dark Frontiers” is the newest, gamified space realm governed by a Gamestarter produced DAO. As NFT standards and values are shifting towards promoting use-cases, Dark Frontiers’ goal is to drive mainstream adoption by enhancing the usability of NFTs through staking, item ownership, and the creation of real-world value through in-game items.

Embarking on the gamified metaverse, players will pilot their own spaceship and conquer new planets, defeat oppositions, form guilds and capture new and unique NFTs that can either be built on or sold on the open markets.

The $DARK token in Dark Frontiers will cover an array of opportunities. For players interested in dominating entire sections of a universe, say, by owning a moon, or a planet, they can use this digital plot of land to earn interest on their $DARK. The token will not only be used for staking, but players can also purchase and upgrade their starship Galactica’s using $DARK. After upgrading your ship for universal domination, you are prepared to stand head-to-head with other opponents that are in your way!
