Axie Infinity launches the mainnet battle
From training to the big leagues.
Axie Infinity has seen a lot of success in its battle system.
According to the team, while the game has been released on mainnet, battles will take place off-chain. This decision was to ensure that “players have a smooth and enjoyable playing experience.”
Meanwhile, the ownership of digital assets by players remains on the Ethereum blockchain while battles will eventually join the Loom Network Plasma Chain private beta.
Along with this news, the team has announced a number of changes to its battle system to enhance player experience.
In order to take part in a battle, players need to spend an activity point. Whenever one of these is spent, it takes four hours to fully replenish.
Players being able to spend as many as they want at a time, but will need to wait until they are replenished to battle again.
‘Beans Blessing’ – Launch celebration
To commemorate the launch of the battle system onto the mainnet, Axie Infinity has introduced a daily EXP bonus system called ‘Beans Blessing.’
By clicking the lucky charm on the battle lobby screen, users can obtain a 20% EXP boost for 24hrs, with only a transaction fee to pay in order to get it.
Users will also be able to gain more experience points by breeding their Axies, with each one completed requiring more EXP to do it:
- 1st Breed: 300
- 2nd Breed: 900
- 3rd Breed: 900
- 4th Breed: 1500
- 5th Breed: 2400
- 6th Breed: 3000
- 7th Breed: 3000
Steady growth so far
