Axie Infinity’s closed beta setup
According to its Discord channel, Axie Infinity’s closed beta consists of two phases which will stress test the game, outlining any bugs while trying out its future tournament system.
“The beta will happen in two phases — the first phase battles will be off-chain, and players can play as many battles as they want,” according to Jihoz, an Axie Infinity team member.
“Once we have verified that the game is stable we will reset the leaderboard and activate on chain battles. At that time phase, two will commence, and players will only be able to battle 12 times per hour. At the end of phase two, we will invite the top 16 players on the leaderboard to the first ever Axie Infinity tournament.”
‘Jihoz’ also mentioned that, as of yet, there is no date set for the end of the beta.
