Pixels CEO Luke Barwikowski Focuses on Tackling Bots in Increased Daily Active Users Numbers
After surpassing 100,000 daily active users, there has been speculation about the proportion of bots in the data, with talk that as much as 40% of the daily active users may actually be real unique players.
It’s important to take measures against bots in any sustainable game, particularly those driven by web3 economies. Rewards for bots impact the incentives for real users and hinder game growth. It’s better to focus on actual unique players rather than inflating user numbers for appearances’ sake in the long run.
Approaches to Tackling Bots in Pixels
Certain strategies are being introduced in Pixels to address the issue of bots. The first of which is the battle pass VIP. This serves as a barrier to withdrawals of Pixels’ token BERRY and aims to discourage bot activity in the game. Another method is the introduction of Pixel Reputation, which monitors player behavior and provides a ranking based on several factors such as game progress, social account linking, and in-game purchases. Lastly, the implementation of a cap on resource generation on a per LAND basis is being considered to deter bots from extracting resources, with guild participation being a key factor in regulating this.
