Sorare Overhauls Tournament Rewards Amidst Player Influx

Fantasy football game Sorare has announced a major change to their tournament rewards, as they have revealed a dynamic reward system based on the number of active clubs in a game week. When many clubs play, many players can use their cards and therefore there will be more rewards.

Sorare is making these changes to their rewards in order to deal with an influx of new players into their game. With the new reward mechanism, more players will be able to earn rewards. During a quiet midweek round, there will be fewer card rewards up for grabs. However, during busier rounds there will be a lot more rewards available.

Under the new reward system, there will even be prices when there are only a few clubs playing in a category. Let’s say there are only 5 matches in the United States, then still the Champion America League will open to compete, and a few can win some prizes. However, during a busier round, there will now be almost triple the amount of prize cards. All SO5 tournaments will be open all the time, as long as at least one team is playing.

Small changes to Sorare ETH rewards

By competing and reaching a certain number of points, players in Sorare can earn ETH. For example, in Global All-Star Division 4 players will earn 0.01 ETH for reaching 205 points, and 0.02 ETH for 250 points. However, these prices will now be paid in dollar value: $15 and $30.

So if the price of ETH keeps increasing, you will get less ETH.

Progression & Reward Drops

In the coming months Sorare will introduce a new feature, which allows for Player vs Game mechanics. In this progression mode users don’t battle each other, but need to ‘beat the game’. Sorare didn’t provide any further details on this, but will elaborate more in the coming weeks.

In addition they will introduce Reward Drops. Here 30% of the Tier 3 Rare Rewards will be distributed to managers in Division 4 who didn’t end up with a card, but did score more than 200 points. The more points you earned, the bigger your chance of winning that card. Sorare hopes that this will help manager to move to a higher division.

What is Sorare?

Sorare is a fantasy football game powered by blockchain technology. The project also has support from game publisher Ubisoft through the company’s entrepreneurs lab. The fantasy football game is enjoying lots of hype in recent months. Consistently the game is among the most popular applications on the Ethereum blockchain. In addition the company received a four million dollar investment to push the game forward, while signing FC Barcelona star Pique as a spokesperson and adding Real Madrid to the game.

Blockchain technology introduces actual scarcity to digital cards, so these cards have a limited supply. Players can use the cards they’ve bought to create a fantasy team. Each card represents a real player. Based on the performance of that player on the actual pitch, the card holders will earn points. Every week the teams with the most points will earn new cards as a reward. The cheapest cards generally sell for a couple of dollars, while the most wanted ones go for well over a thousand dollars a piece. Join the game!

For every game week managers will need to select a team from the player card collection. They will need one goalkeeper, one defender, one midfielder, one attacker and an extra field player. Players earn points based on the real-life performance of those players. Therefore players that play regularly, are active in winning team, hardly make mistakes, and score a lot of goals, are generally valuable. Each card can only be used once during a game week, but if you have enough cards you can join in multiple leagues.
