Fresh off of their Mojo Bowl Invitational Tournament, Mojo Melee prepares for their first Champion NFT drop. Opening on March 3rd, the mint for these Champion NFTs is completely free, but you have to be on the list to get one!
The mint may be free, but alas, no everyone can get one of these Champions. To acquire a Mojo Melee Champion NFT during this mint, you must either be on the whitelist, or be flagged as a Mojo Elite.
Mojo Elite is a special Discord status given to active community members and contributors or through giveaways. So this isn’t something that can be purchased or acquired easily. However, there are still opportunities to land a whitelist spot. Follow Planet Mojo on Twitter and join their Discord chat to watch for various contests and giveaways.
Mojo Elites receive a guaranteed mint, but for those on the Mojo List (whitelist), it will be first come first served, so you will need to be quick!
And though Mojo Melee is free to play, when the game launches, those who own the NFTs they play with will have access to greater earning potential.
The mint starts on March 3rd, 2023 with the first phase opening for the Mojo Elite at 4pm UTC, and the Mojo List 30 minutes later at 4:30pm UTC. This Champions mint will be available through Magic Eden, on the Polygon network.
What is Mojo Melee?
Mojo Melee, is a fantasy themed, auto-battle. Players build teams around a Mojo character consisting of 1 Mojo unit, 4 Champion units, and 2 SpellStones.
Each team can bring up to two SpellStones to a match. Every Spellstone has a special ability. Spellstones fall into three groups — Attachments, which are put with a unit to provide it with the Spellstone’s ability, Offensive Spellstones which are placed on the opponents side and affect enemy units in their range, and Team Spellstones, which provide team bonuses.
Mojos have access to different Spellstones based on their subclass. Mojos are automatically deployed at the start of the battle and offer passive bonuses to their team.
Players receive ten gold at the start of every round. Any gold not spent carries over to the next round. During the preparation phase, players use their gold to place units and Spellstones onto the battlefield. Players can upgrade units and Spellstones by purchasing additional copies and placing them on the same tile. Players can upgrade each unit and spellstone as many as three times.
Once both players are done preparing, the game enters auto-battle mode and the teams fight it out until only one is left or time runs out. Each unit type has a number of different stats including health, armor, attack damage, and even targeting priority. These all factor into the team’s behavior and results during a match.
Units have special abilities that can trigger when they gain enough Energy. Some Champions even start the match with full Energy! Spellstones activate once at the start of a round and immediately provide their buff or effect.
Mojo Melee is currently in a free to play alpha phase.
