I honestly don't know much about NFTs and I'm not really interested in the subject. But a few of my friends have created these NFTs and earned a good amount of money. So maybe it's not completely uninteresting.

I do not know a ton about NFT, but this sounds like micro-transactions, and from playing a ton of Advanced Warfare, my experience was not great. The pay-to-win system is broken.

If NFTs do not promise a skill boost and are cosmetic only, then it is more than okay. Like the later micro-transactions in Black Ops 4, cosmetic only, cool to look at and cool to dress a character in.

From what I have read so far about this game the NFTs offer players a chance to unique events and in-game rewards, which sounds like pay to win in a way. Depends on what the rewards are and what the events promise, but so far it sounds like the former and not the latter.

It will be interesting because it is a mobile game, and these are not nearly expansive as console games, so how it will be implemented is something to monitor.
