Wei Wendong, known as Shadow King, was an honorary member of the King's Esports Club as part of the League of Legends team runner-up in the S4 series . After the S4 he chose to retire from the scene and became a streamer, but surprisingly had a lackluster performance in the streaming world .
But because he grasped on the historical opportunity of coming online, he boldly chose to become a mobile game streamer that didn't seem to have a future . He finally used 's influence, stunning game content, and first mover advantage to become the leader in New Era streaming .
Right now, New Era's market penetration had already far surpassed Heartstone, and even edging out the PC platform League of Legends, his influencing in the streaming world obviously increased because of that as his follower on Weibo was comparable to his old captain .
Therefore, half of his achievement today was because of Future Technology . So to the name that changed the lives of many, he had a strong connection to the company .
Just sometimes ago, Future 1 . 0 suddenly had a pushup notification which perked his interest .
The internal testing phase will be two months . In this period, the player can obtain 2000 USD in monthly salary with flight and accommodations covered by Future Technology . After the internal test, participants will receive a collector game helmet . The helmet will be sent to participants on the first day of the official release .
At the same time, the name used in the internal test will be retained in the official release .
Virtual reality MMORPG? Free international travel?
Disregarding the international aspect first .
With the release of this news, it erupted among domestic forums as the netizens all expressed Future Technology's lunatic move .
The 2000 USD monthly salary, no one really cared about . People who were not dumb all knew that by being the first in obtaining information about the game, guilds would kill for you to join them . Even if you didn't join a guild, with the experience through the internal test, it was easy to make a living through the game .
The profit by that time would far exceed 4000 USD! Even the most foolish person would know .
Just take New Era, for example, professional players could make ten thousand easily through taking players to level up and selling gold . If they obtained legendary equipment, rich players would often pay millions just to get their hands on it .
Almost no one questioned the fact that the Godly Land had a future without a ceiling .
On a forum:
"Virtual reality MMORPG? I can't believe I can see this in my lifetime? Let me go calm down first . "
"Are the officials of Future Technology stupid? Playing games with this kind of technology? If this is used to train soldiers, our soldiers' combat ability will increase by ten levels! The military budget for training would be reduced by 50%! But you use it to make games, what a disgrace!"
"What a dumba*s!"
"The second comment poster just connected to the Internet? Virtual reality technology is already mature overseas . Plextek's virtual reality equipment is already used in training by the British forces, but it has yet to replace the whole training process . I don't know where you got the ten levels of 50% data from . Also, Eve's VR equipment could already simulate intergalactic travel, if VR is as insane as you have described, why don't you go up in space?"
"I just want to know where the public beta is! I'm not selected . QQ . "
"Asking for internal testing spot for one million RMB, message if interested . "
"The internal spot is connected with your ID, you really can't buy IQ with money . "
The posts on the game's official website already exceeded twenty thousand on the first day . It was evident that the players were all eager for the virtual reality MMORPG .
As to the game itself, Future Technology left enough mystery to it and only released a one minute CG as well as a portal for the draw . Before the draw, the players must confirm that they can head to Pannu Islands . If the player cannot attend, they will be banned for ten years once the game is online .
With anxiousness, Wei Wendong pressed the button .
With the number of participants in the draw continuously increasing, he didn't have too much hope . But happiness suddenly came around the corner when he managed to obtain a spot!
When he saw the notification , he pressed yes without hesitation, then uploaded the screenshot to Weibo which instantly caused an explosive reaction among his fans .
