On Sunday, January 30, 2022 at 8:31am EST, MetaZoo Games founder Michael Waddell started up another MetaZoo Hour on the official MetaZoo Discord server.
There were a total of 108 MetaZoo related questions & 12 personal/unrelated questions that were asked by members of the MetaZoo Discord community, and the answers all came directly from Michael Waddell himself; unless otherwise stated.
As always, we’ll start off with the MetaZoo-related questions first, in the order that they were received, and then move onto the personal questions afterward. Try searching for things such as “Wilderness,” “Valentines” or “NFT” to narrow-down the results. It all works dynamically. 🙂
Michael Waddell at 8:31am EST:
@everyone MetaZoo Hour begins now! Ask me anything in 📝-metazoo-chat!
He is working on it now!
Final one was nuts
UFO releases this summer, seance is this year’s spooky set
Exclusive promo and boxes
I want to do our first major tournament, and I want 250k to be the cash prizes, and I want to bring it closer to 500k in total prizes when you include product and other things
We might just burn them
Yes, but we want to do these correctly. With more and more chapters coming out, we want the ads to be more impactful
It still needs to be minted and will be on Feb 1st. We had to wait a month for internal and legal reasons
Planning for 9pm EST
Better than last year, and that’s the hope for each year. We have some collabs coming that are going to blow your mind
There will be a promo box of 10 packs, 1 card per pack, included with each tier. These promo cards are tournament legal. Oh, and uncut sheets will be addons as well 😉
That’s the plan
More details on that later
We are trying to figure out the best time for this and will have updates soon
We are in talks with a major company about reimagining my illustrated story as a comic, which, yes, will be standard size
Looked pretty poggers
I think it’s safe to say with big box that it’s better for me to just give a range, like first half of feb, rather than a specific day
Just follow the math, nothing was shortprinted
UFO will fly, in ways you might not expect though
When we go public in 2023
After these first 36 chapters I will open the world up to other authors
I want those boxes out in the wild, no buy backs haha
Plan is to have the nft Tokens to be used for that
that’s something different entirely
Details on that soon
But we couldn’t connect metamask to KS fast enough
Let’s start out slow with a how to play
Wilderness soundtrack is ready to go
Like… most of them haha
Wilderness spoiler and collect-a-con packs, and wilderness giveaways
Can’t say… too many secrets
You mean, like covid?
Contact away! Support is on top of things
No bundles, just 1 box
We will have to see what’s available. Distributors have gobbled everything up
We will save you all some
Update very, very soon
You all slept on loveland for long enough, I like the idea that the meta will discover useful beasties as time goes on 😉
DFW collect-a-con, may
Cards are being printed now. Once we have them, we will be reaching out
Yes, you need to have played at a MZ sanctioned event using our MPN
In 2 months at release
me dressed as blue manta
Some good ideas, but there’s no rush. For now, just enjoy the cards
Working on it!
Next podcast planned is.. Camp Cryptid I think
working on this for LGSs
We don’t limit the artists with stuff like this, it’s entirely up to them
people spread weird rumors to create FUD
sooner than you think
haha I can’t answer this for you
yes, or time
We have terrifying, very well paid lawyers
We always look at fan suggestions!
would need to leave the apartment to justify that expense
lowest is $45, highest is $1275
I think the plan is the 15th?
Going just fine, they have their product
Lots of NFT stuff in the background!
This will be announced soon
That’s up to people like you!
Always open to new collabs, message @Chaos Crystal Enthusiast!
We are continuing our collab with topps in spectacular fashion this year
open to interviews, email firstname.lastname@example.org with serious inquiries!
Working on it
We aren’t in control of tcgplayer, but us being the app is certainly something that would be cool
I feel like we do a good job of this
Not on TTS, no. I would suggest spreading the word/setting something up at your LGS if you want sanctioned play
They will be at the back
it launches at 9pm EST, so you should be okay
I’ll just text them, easier that way, already got their numbers.
already started shipping
We can’t ship at a loss, at the end of the day we are a business. My suggestion is to go through local distribution
yes, but we can always do better
You’ll see 😉
Same utility across the board
wouldn’t you LOVE to know?
Let’s extend it to other core products
Feb 14th for pinclub, 1st week of march for topps wilderness
It will be released in conjunction with seance.
1k for chapter 1, 5k for chapter 2, 10k for chapter 3, 10k for chapter 4
depends on demand, for right now, we are focused on digital release to maximize exposure
2023 most likely, aiming for netflix
Meat when cooked, fish when raw
I’m doing well, better than last week, which was better than the week before that
I would be down
fruit and cheese from starbies
Rich in life? Get your 8 hours each night
imagine wearing socks
Nobody wants to see that, trust me
I spend a lot of time by myself
Sometimes I stay up late reading the facebook groups’ comments and posts
Michael Waddell at 9:35am EST:
Okay everyone! Thank you! I have to get back to work on the KS. Enjoy your Sunday 🙂
