The Gaming Company has partnered with Hooga Hooga Gaming, Lorcan Gaming, Putra Gaming and FTX, to introduce the first ever Axie Infinity Tournament; FTX GalAxie Cup. Registrations will open beginning 25 October until 14 November 2021 to gamers globally.
Axie Infinity is a turn-based strategy game where players collect creatures known as Axies to battle one another in an arena. The game uses Ethereum-based cryptocurrency, AXS and Smooth Love Potion (SLP) as in-game currency which can be converted into real money.
The FTX GalAxie Cup will kick-off with its Influencer Tournament on 27 November 2021, followed by its Pro Tournament the following day. While the Influencer Tournament is only open to selected Guilds and its nominated representative, the Pro Tournament is open to the public – participants are required to register as a team of three, and its members’ individual MMR will be recorded and averaged out as the team’s MMR. Eight teams with the highest MMR will be eligible to participate in the event.
Each team will be provided with Axies that will be used throughout the tournament. While the Axies provided will be identical in terms of type, cards, and stats, the Axies’ number given will vary to give players a range of differences that may prove to be advantageous. As such, a Ban/Pick Phase will be held, and all information on the Axies will be provided prior to the match day on FTX GalAxie Cup’s official website at www.galaxiecup.com. Below are the prizes up for grabs:
|3rd – 4th Place||12 AXS|
|5th – 8th Place||6 AXS|
In doing their part during such difficult times, FTX GalAxie Cup will be donating 100% of the prize pool from the Influencer Tournament to charity.
|Second Runner-Up||32 AXS|
