Daily Duels Tournaments

Daily Duels Tournaments

Crypto Raiders Duels are in full swing, with tournaments happening daily and $AURUM rewards  the top 8 competitors.

What are Duels?

Duels is our PVP mode, providing the ability to host tournaments within our community.

Players battle through a single elimination bracket with their Raider of choice. Each round, two players battle each other until one of them has three wins. The first to three wins advances to the next round.

All players are required to be present in Discord to share the outcome of their duel. This is a great opportunity to talk with like-minded Raiders, find your rival, and bask in the glory of your Raider’s conquest.

Prize Pool

Players battle over an $AURUM prize pool and earn Invitational Qualifier Points toward our next Invitational Tournament.

The Duels Tournament prize pool is split into two different pools. We have smaller daily tournaments and two weekend tournaments with greater prizes.

Weekday Prize Pool

  • 1st - 10,000
  • 2nd - 7,000
  • 3rd - 3,500
  • 4th - 3,100
  • 5th - 8th - 2,200

Weekend Prize Pool

  • 1st - 14,000
  • 2nd - 8,500
  • 3rd - 4,500
  • 4th - 4,000
  • 5th - 8th - 2,800

Aurum prize pools will be updated monthly to reflect any fluctuations in token price.

The top 8 competitors in our Duels Alpha Open Invitational received a guaranteed invite to the next Open Invitational. They will not need to compete for points, and so the top 56 unique participants beyond those will receive a spot as well.

Players will earn Qualifier Points based on their placing in each Daily Tournament.

Qualifier Point Distribution:

  • 1st place - 10
  • 2nd place - 7
  • 3rd place - 5
  • 4th place - 5
  • 5th - 8th place - 3
  • 9th place+ - 1

Top Point Holders

Current standings can be found on the leaderboard

Currently the top 5 players by points are are:

1) Flitster - 48

2) Palouf - 35

3) Dan_K - 31

4) HelV - 30

5) Batuhan - 30

When asked about their success this is what they had to say:

Flitser: These tournaments have been great to get to know the community better. Theory crafting and speculating what the best builds for pvp are with our guild (Grimweed Highrollers) has been good times.

Palouf: I want to say thanks you very much to the whole crypto raider team, the project is really great,you worked like crazy, pushing updates all the time, giving cash prizes since December for the pvp, that's really magnificent.

Dan_K: My orc is a luck build. When stats v3 happens I might have a nice combo with him.

Batuhan: I am kinda small time player not like many other top players so i would like to say to all other small fishes that this game does give you the chance to stand toe to toe against big whales. therefore it is really [a] game like as it should be, not purely p2w.

Top 56 players will receive an invite to the February invitational. The cut-off for top 56 currently sits at 3 points.
