The Organizer has discretion in its enforcement of the Tournament Rules. Its decisions are final.
4. How does the game work?
4.1. General Mode of Tournament: The Tournament is divided into various phases of 60 minutes each. The phases are aligned with the Element Types and their rotation order is: AIR > FIRE > GEM > METAL > NATURE (each a “Tournament Phase”). In each phase, Players can engage a selection of Player NFTs consisting of one Avatar NFT, one Minion NFT and one Weapon NFT (the “Engaged NFT’s”), along with one Order (as defined below) and one Planet Alignment (as defined below) into a “Battle”. Each such selection must be confirmed by signing the relevant transaction through the connected Wax Cloud Wallet of the relevant Player.
4.2. NFT Selection: For each Battle they engage into, a Player is required to select three Engaged NFTs. Such NFTs have various attributes, to following of which are relevant for the Tournament:
4.2.1. Avatar NFTs: Avatars are NFTs which do not confer powers within the game and are purely a collectible for aesthetic value;
4.2.2. Minion NFTs:Minions have an “Attack Rating” and a “Defense Rating” - the former gives them the ability to deplete another Minion’s Health Rating (as defined below), the latter is relevant for their own Health Rating;
4.2.3. Weapon NFTs: Weapons have an Attack Rating and a Defense Rating (each of which combines with the relevant rating of the underlying Minion), as well as an “Element Type”;
4.3. Order Selection: Upon dispatching Engaged NFTs into a Battle, each Player is required to select one “Order” for their Engaged NFTs among the following four possibilities:
4.3.1. Evade: affords a Player’s Engaged NFTs a 20% chance to evade attack entirely;
4.3.2. Defense: reduces damage to a Player’s Engaged NFTs by 10%;
4.3.3. Attack Strongest: causes a Player’s Engaged NFTs to target the highest health opponent, subject to Planetary Alignment;
4.3.4. Attack Weakest: causes a Player’s Engaged NFTs to target the lowest health opponent, subject to Planetary Alignment.
4.4. Planet Allegiance: For each Battle, each Player is required to select one “Planetary Alignment” for their Engaged NFTs, which will cause their Engaged NFTs not to attack the Engaged NFTs of other Players who selected the same Planetary Alignment, until all Players having selected a different Planetary Alignment have been defeated. In every round of a Battle, if more than 50% of all Players still engaged in the Battle have selected the same Planetary Alignment (a “Strong Faction”) relative to their opponents with different Planetary Alignments (“Small Factions”), the message “planet
4.5. Battles: In each Battle, a Player’s Engaged NFTs, Order selection and Planet Alignment are pitted against those of the remaining Players participating in the same Battle. The Engaged NFTs subsequently engage in bilateral matches with other Players who remain in the Battle until their Health Rating (as defined below) is depleted. The Players are matched against each other in line with the Orders and in such way that no two Players with the same Planet Alignment attack each other before all Players with a different Planet Alignment are vanquished. Depending on the Tournament Phase, Engaged NFT's with a matching Element Type matching the battle phase benefit from a bonus of +5 Attack Rating /+5 Defense Rating for the duration of the relevant phase. Players can acquire such bonuses both for Minions and Weapons, thereby increasing the aggregate bonus to +10/+10, provided that each Engaged NFT matches the relevant phase.
4.6. Health Rating and Recovery: Each set of Engaged NFTs has a “Health Rating” composed of the combined Defense Ratings of the engaged Minion and the engaged Weapon NFT. The Health Rating diminishes under the attacks of opponents in Battle. Once such Health Rating is fully depleted, the relevant Engaged NFTs are removed from the Battle. The Health Rating of the Engaged NFTs in question subsequently recovers over time. A full recovery requires a period of 24 hours. Such period can be foregone by repairing the relevant NFTs with Trilium (which will cause the relevant quantity of Trilium to be expended). The necessary quantity of Trilium depends on the rarity of the underlying NFT: Common – 1 TLM; Rare – 2 TLM; Epic – 3 TLM; Legendary 5 TLM; Mythical - 10 TLM.
4.7. Winning a Battle: Battles are fought on a last man standing basis, only one Player and their Engaged NFTs can “survive” a Battle with a remaining Health Rating that is not fully depleted. Such remaining Player is credited with a win and the number of Players they eliminated in that Battle (“Kills”) as well as the remaining Health Rating of their Engaged NFTs is taken into account for the purposes of the Ranking.
5. What can you win and how?
5.1. Prizes; At the end of the Tournament, after the Ranking has been published by the Organizer, Dacoco will award the following prizes (each a “Prize”) to the first 10 positions under the Ranking: 90% of each Prize will be remitted onto the wallet address submitted upon the relevant Player’s registration. The remaining 10% of each Prize will be transferred to the treasury of the Syndicate of the relevant Player (as indicated by such Player in their Planetary Alignment).
5.2. Ranking: The “Ranking” will be compiled within 30 days after the end of the Tournament by the Organizer, on the basis of A. a Player’s number of wins, in first priority, B. a Player’s number of Kills in winning games, if scores under A are equal and C. the remaining “health” of a Player’s NFTs in winning games, if scores under B remain equal. No two Players can hold the same rank in the Ranking. As a tiebreaker, in the very unlikely event in which scores remain equal even taking account the metric under C, the Relevant Scores for the tied Players will be adjudicated in alphabetical, resp. numerical order, according to the first letters and numbers of the applicable wallet address, where “a” beats “b”, which beats “c” etc. and “0” beats “1”, which beats “2”, etc.
5.3. Publication of the Ranking: The Organizer will publish the Ranking on https://battledome.live/leaders as soon as it has completed its compilation as well as any verifications it may deem necessary within its sole discretion.
