Uniting Web3 Gaming Communities: AI to the rescue.
By Topper Bowers
Maybe our new AI overlords aren’t all that bad.
GaspodeWD was reminiscing about the good old days when Discord communities were melting pots of multiple games, a stark contrast to today’s siloed web3 game discords. Then Mizzy chimed in with a potential solution.
Could AI be the knight in shining armor to revitalize the spirit of diverse gaming communities?
Today’s reality is that each web3 game has its own dedicated Discord, fragmenting the overall community. While the idea of cooperating indie games sharing a single Discord is amazing, it’s unrealistic due to the prisoner’s dilemma of giving up control.
But what if we could bypass this obstacle with AI? Here’s a concept that I believe provides a fresh perspective and potentially transforms our current dynamics.
The Community Bot: Observing, Reporting, and Connecting
Envision an AI-powered community bot deployed across cooperating web3 game Discords. Its primary purpose? Observing and reporting. This bot would collect data on discussions, trending topics, popular games, and interests, and provide regular summaries of the discourse across the cooperative.
Perhaps the most exciting aspect of this concept is the potential for cross-interest detection. This community bot, powered by a language model, would analyze conversations across servers. When it detects overlap in topics or interests, it suggests a visit to another server with similar themes, promoting cross-community interactions.
Bridging the Discord Gap: A Future of Unified, Diverse Gaming Communities
The envisioned community bot wouldn’t aim to diminish the uniqueness of individual game communities. Instead, it would strive to encourage broader interaction and shared experiences, with the ultimate goal being the unity of diverse gaming communities.
The goal is to re-build the indie gamer cooperative spirit while keeping overhead low for the folks who just want to play games.
The key takeaway here is that AI might hold the potential to bridge the gaps between various game communities, fostering a vibrant, interconnected web3 gaming community.
As web3 and indie developers continue to push the boundaries of creativity, perhaps it’s time we did the same with how we approach building our gaming communities.
