Fans of the WAX blockchain have been longing for a proper game to play for much of the past year, and with The Forge Arena, it looks like their calls may have been answered.
However, many will be approaching The Forge Arena with a measure of caution.
As discussed in the interview, m1nac’s controversial past in esports is well-known. I’m all for second chances, but any more than that and rebuilding trust with your target audience – which is paramount in Web3 – only becomes harder.
Artur claims to have changed for the better, and for that, we can only take him at his word. The Forge Arena itself may be a great game, but I cannot blame nor disagree with prospective players for any reservations they may have at this stage.
Wounds may heal, but scars run deep. Time will tell if m1nac can redeem himself in an industry where he’s such a contentious figure, and if The Forge Arena can grow into the industry-defining competitive esport it aims to become.
