Brawls (See Eye Candy For UI Teasers!):

  • SPS rewards are designed to be an exponential progress rather than a linear
    • Guild upgrades take about a year to reach the highest tier
    • SPS Brawl rewards should be a huge incentive for Guilds to move up tiers and not camp in the lower tiers

  • Development for SPS Brawl rewards is almost finished, but rollout is expected for later in October
    • SPS Governance proposal will need to created and voted on

Special Guests

NFTy Arcade:

  • NFTy Arcade is building a platform to make lending/delegating decks easier
    • Platform will allow both the deck owner and the deck player to share rewards
    • Platform will track all the rewards and balances associated with the decks you delegate/lend
    • Allows the reward share to be customized and not just a 50/50 split
  • Platform will also support pre-configured decks to be bought and sold
    • For example, if you want a maxed Gold league Modern deck, you could potentially buy a full deck if it is listed
  • If you are interested in using this platform, submit to be on the Waitlist!
  • NFTy Arcade is one of the sponsors at Splinterfest so if you are attending, feel free to stop by and meet Tyler & Jared!

Playground Labs - Kapital DAO:

  • Kapital DAO Project Overview
    • New solution to enable guilds, large firms/institutions, or people to operate at massive scale within web3 gaming
    • Allows asset owners to delegate their assets out to managers, who then can delegate the assets out to players
      • Owners retain full access to their assets
      • Managers can't gain full access to the assets but they can delegate them out
      • Players can only play with the assets
    • Platform can be used across multiple web3 games, not just specific to Splinterlands or Axie Infinity, for example
  • Kapital DAO is currently live with Axie Infinity, Pegaxy, and Crypto Unicorns
    • Playground Labs team is currently working on integrating Splinterlands onto the platform
    • Their team has partnered with the largest SPL Guild as well (to be announced soon!)
