ON THE TRACK WITH ARCHIBALD ROYAL FAMILY
Last week we reached out to Archibald Royal Family to get some of their stable secrets! As one of the top stables around, they had a lot to share and were very excited to give back to the community!
Here is the interview!
Q – What Is Your Stable Name?
Our stable name is Archibald Royal Family!
Q – What Are Your Stable’s Stats?
Currently, I have around 134 horses across my 2 stables.
At the time of writing (November 2021), my stables have a combined 390 first place finishes, 361 second place finishes, and 356 third place finishes.
In addition, our stable is maintaining above a 11% Win Rate in general!
Q – When Did You Start In Zed?
I joined Zed in Spring 2021!
I have loved it ever since.
Q – What Is Your Primary Focus In ZED? Breeding, Racing, or Selling?
All of the above!
You have to be EXTREMELY flexible and versatile in the Zed ecosystem.
For many months, I was making great returns solely off of breeding and selling those offspring.
As the meta continues to change so have I begun to adapt.
Therefore, I am currently focusing on racing, tournaments, and breeding. Hopefully looking to breed the next big thing on the track!
Q – How Many Hours A Week Do You Dedicate To ZED?
Way too many at this point.
I have flexibility with my job (I am on the computer all day), and Zed is easily accessible (you can pop a few quick races on MetaMask app on your phone for example).
In addition to the platform, I am also spending time on twitter and discord (which I do not put on my phone or I could never disconnect).
In general, way too many hours, but I love it! I think it is a big part of the future gaming world!
Q – What Is Your Favorite Horse You Own And Why Do You Love It?
Oh man, that is like asking me to pick which kid is my favorite (and I only have 3 kids).
I love how they both look, and I love their names. Especially how they relate to my real world job that involves U.S. markets.
Q – What Advice Would You Give To Someone Starting A ZED Stable Now?
Set your expectations. Set your expectations. And set your expectations.
I cannot stress this enough.
I have seen so many people bash the community or rage quit because they come into the game with .2 ETH and expect to be the next great champion.
I am not saying it is impossible. There are tons of bargains and great deals out there, but there is big money in this game with numerous stables that are worth multi-millions of dollars.
This is who you will be competing with and against.
I would also recommend coming up with a plan before you enter into the space. For example, is this a fun hobby, a business, an investment, or all of the above?
If you want to be a good racer, don’t take chances with UU lottery tickets.
Get with one of the stables with a proven record of good breeding, and take a shot at something that has a higher chance of not being a lemon. Or, buy a proven racer that can compete in the lower classes as you learn the game.
You would be surprised how many bigger stables are super friendly for new players especially.
I would love to hook someone up with a solid Legendary horse that will hopefully get them hooked.
Every new player in the ecosystem is good for Zed.
Q – Who Is Someone You Respect In The Zed Community And Why?
Oh man, this is SUCH a tough question, because I feel like I learn from and teach tons of people.
We all feed off each other and this helps boost the economy.
I respect Danshan for shaking haters off (which I used to be one) and continuing to build tools for the community.
Q – Where Will ZED Be 24 Months From Today?
Shit, where WON’T Zed be 24 months from today?
I am EXTREMELY BULLISH on this game and the direction it is headed.
As more experience comes aboard and rounds out the staff and development team, I expect nothing but big things. Blockchain gaming, more utility, and PTE is the future.
Lets look at real horse racing for example. It is a mega billion dollar industry, but the majority of players are just handicappers or bettors. It is very hard to own a stable, much less a horse.
This game opens that up to an exponential number of people that could never own real horses.
The sky is the limit with Zed as long as they strive to execute better and better.
Q – If You Could Change One Thing About Zed What Would It Be And Why?
This is also a tough question. I would make tweaks to tons of stuff, although not necessarily big changes.
I think they could do a much better job with platform reporting, and what I mean by this is leaderboards, schedules, financial dashboard, etc.
Maybe take ownership here so the community isn’t responsible for building all this out.
Q – What Is One Secret You Hate To Give Away But Will Tell Us About Your ZED Strategy?
One secret that applies to Zed, just like the real world, is the famous Warren Buffet special:
“be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful”.
My secret is take advantage of people with weak stomachs and constitution.
People cannot handle it when their stock account is red, and that psychology applies to Zed as well.
I guess I would say it like this. Buy genesis and anything else cheap, based on tomorrow’s prices, not today’s problems.
Q – Any Last Comments?
No, just sit back, hold tight, and get excited for the ride to come!
Q – How Can People Follow Your Zed Journey Or Contact You?
I am in discord, but twitter is probably the best way to get in touch.
Feel free to follow me here and reach out if you have any questions or need help getting started!
