The first official PvP tournament for Eternal Dragons kicks off at the end of March. With a prize pool of over $15,000 USDC, this is a great play and earn opportunity for aspiring dragon tamers!

Eternal Dragons introduced PvP to their dragon-themed auto-battler recently. Now they prepare to host their first official tournament, with a large prize pool and a new feature known as Player Cards.

If you want some practice before the big tournament, the second Eternal Dragons Alpha PvP League starts tomorrow, March 20th. In addition to honing their game, the top three players earn prizes as well. Three Descendant Eggs for first place, two for second place, and one for third place.

Eternal Dragons Alpha Tournament

The first official tournament for Eternal Dragons runs from March 31st through April 2nd. This tournament offers 128 slots for players. One hundred of those can be purchased for 5 SOL tokens, with the remaining 28 reserved for partner promotions.

Tickets are expected to go on sale next week, with priority access given to those holding 35 or more Genesis Dragons, and the top 25 finishers from the first season of the Alpha PvP League. The tournament is single elimination, with best of three matches until the final, which will be the best of five matches.

The prize pool includes $15,000 plus the amount spent on tickets. The top 64 players receive prizes, with a least $3,000 going to first place! Which is a pretty nice prize!

Player Cards

Eternal Dragons also introduces Player Cards. These are given to every player who registers for an Eternal Dragons tournament. Each entrant receives 100 player cards that track that player’s stats. These cards also represent a stake in the tournament. They can be handed out to anyone. Everyone who holds a Player Card shares in whatever prizes that player wins!

This is a rather interesting and unique feature. I look forward to seeing how players make use of these cards and what sort of markets may develop around them.

As an additional bonus, holding a Player Card provides owners access to the Eternal Dragons alpha.

What is Eternal Dragons

Eternal Dragons is an auto-battler game built on the Solana blockchain with Dragons as combat units. With numerous different classes, position-based abilities, and elemental affinities, Eternal Dragons is sure to offer plenty of room for different strategies and team builds. Dragons have basic stats of hit points, elemental power (magic damage), and physical power (physical damage).

In addition, units in Eternal Dragons have a number of other attributes that affect their combat abilities. First each has a default skill. This is the basic, and most often used skill for that Dragon. It can be an attack, heal, buff/debuff, or even some combination. Units also have prime stats they prefer. This will matter when players add items to units, as matching items to prime stats will provide better combat value. Dragons also have Skill Sets and Class Skills. Skill Set is a collection of abilities. Only Dragons with matching Skill Sets can use those abilities. And, as you might guess, Class Skills are specific to certain Dragon Classes.

Also, each Dragon class has certain other classes that it enjoys pairing with. These are known as “neighboring dragons”. Neighboring Dragons share Skill Sets. And they will tend to have class skills and abilities that harmonize well together. Dragons also receive bonuses from sharing affinities with teammates. Each NFT has an associated affinity such as Earth, Air, or Void.

So there is certainly a lot to consider when making teams and playing the game! Eternal Dragons seeks to join the ranks of web3-enabled eSports games, and providing strategic depth is an important part of making that work.
