Changes, that has been the word that has characterized Plant vs Undead since the beta launch on August 2. The latest modification was announced this Wednesday, September 1 and is expected to take effect “in the next few days”, when farm 2.5 is enabled, as reported by the developers.
With so much anticipation surrounding the Play to Earn or “play to win” games, where Axie Infinity is still king, the team behind Plant vs Undead set up for modest success the day of its launch.
It was soon evident that they did not expect more than 200,000 participants in a few days and, consequently, what came next is already part of the story that is frequent in the world of video games: the collapse of the servers.
Since then, Plant vs Undead has been the subject of millions of

To address the issues they face and provide gamers with “a more stable server,” the developers plan a new daily quest system called “The World Tree” that encourages collaborative work between players. Although, so far, they have not given enough details to understand what it consists of.
The Plant vs Undead team itself is focused on decongesting their servers, which seems to be working. This is because since they announced the changes that come with farm 2.5, requests to exchange the LE token are growing, to PVU, which is the mechanism to extract the rewards. A clear sign that a good number of players have preferred to withdraw their winnings before the new changes are introduced.
With the new mechanism the developers They intend to expel participants who have allegedly been taking advantage of the system. By this they refer to the players who would have entered the platform with multiple accounts to obtain greater benefits in a short time.
We noticed that many players took advantage of low barrier entry to spam multiple accounts using cloud services and using bots and other tools. These actions cause the server to overload, causing terrible gaming experiences for other players who really want to play. As a result, we have decided to implement these changes that will help alleviate this situation.

From gardener to farmer in a jump: what’s next in Plant vs Undead
The easiest and cheapest way to enter Plant vs Undead is by participating as a gardener. To do this, players require 5 PVUs, equivalent to $ 75 at the time of writing, according to Coingecko. With this, they obtain basic implements (a potted plant, water and scarecrows) to Earn rewards by caring for your own plant and neighboring crops.
The mechanism of entry to the game is maintained, however, the changes that come transform the methods of extraction of the obtained gains. This is because although, until now, it was possible to extract the funds every three days, with the arrival of the farm 2.0 the Withdrawal of tokens will only be allowed to players who have a plant in NFT format o token no fungible.
The new condition when exchanging LE for PvU is that if you do not own NFT, you will not be able to exchange LE. If you own an NFT plant, the exchange rate will be 300 LE for 1 PvU. And if you own 2 plants in NFT or 1 land, the exchange rate is 100 LE for 1 PvU.

In this way, players who started as gardeners will need at least 2 months to raise the funds with which they will be able to acquire their first plant in NFT that will automatically turn them into farmers.
Later, in two more months they could expand their earnings if they acquire their second NFT. Seen this way, the game would be delivering higher rewards to participants who lock their tokens longer on the platform.
On the other hand, the team behind the game promises a more stable server by implementing an additional layer of bot detection tools. “These two changes combined should allow us to identify players who are taking advantage of the system and get them banned,” they say in their official announcement.
Likewise, minor changes have been introduced such as reducing the frequency of appearance of crows that attack crops, which is the first enemy to fight by players.
The team also reorganized the players in 6 groups to enter and play for 30 minutes per day instead of the 12 shifts that were enabled days ago to attend to the emergency due to the collapse of the servers, as reported by CriptoNoticias at the time.
