Blockchain games need to prioritize gameplay quality to retain players. P2E mechanic alone is not sufficient to maintain the player base, says the survey report.
Blockchain Game Alliance (BGA) recently conducted a survey to evaluate the thoughts of its members as well as blockchain gaming professionals on the current state of the blockchain gaming industry.
The alliance stated that they aim to understand the challenges and opportunities of the industry by comparing respondents’ views. The survey included 22 questions covering topics such as careers, growth, adoption, and key issues facing blockchain gaming.

The survey report suggests that 51% of respondents believe player onboarding and accessibility is the biggest challenge facing the industry. However, poor gameplay and the low-quality player journey were the second most commonly cited challenge, with 37.2% of respondents identifying it as an issue.
The latter appears to be a heating concern, as the issues related to game quality were rated 5th place in the last year’s BGA report.
“Blockchain game developers should understand that games need to work for the player. We need to go through the hoops necessary to attract players rather than demand the player jump through hoops to play the game. The fact is, if your blockchain game can’t provide a comparable or superior experience, you’re out.”
Co-founder and CEO of Unix Gaming, Mirko Basil Doelger, said.
A total of 347 professionals representing 252 different projects or companies in the blockchain sector responded to the survey. The majority of respondents were young adult males working for blockchain gaming companies in middle and top management positions.
