How to play?

Any dna is free to participate.
In order to participate, the owner of the dna has to register from the dna page, it doesn't requiers a Bismuth transaction.
On the dna page, click on the cup tab, then sign the message that appeared, and paste the signature in the field below and click the register button. A new message will tell you if the dna has been registered or not.

How will the cup take place?

Like a regular soccer cup, there will be pools then eliminatory steps.
The number of steps will depend on the number of registered draggons.

Will I have to do something to play the games?

Your draggons will play themselves, depending on their own capabilities.
You can't help them once the cup is started. The best you can do is choose them carefully.

What if I loose?

Well, your draggon history will keep track of your wins and defeats, but nothing will happen to your draggon.
We take great care not to harm any draggon during the game, we have healers and bandages ready just in case.

How to select the best draggons for the cup?

That's the 1 million dollar question :D

All matches are fully simulated using a custom pseudo deterministic engine.
That algorithm does use some of each draggon features as a basis, but let also some space for randomness.
So a match between the 2 same draggons may have a different outcome.

Here is what we can tell about some mechanisms and what features are involved:

  • Strategy does play a role in real soccer. So does it here. In fact, in our simulator, the strategy is used to raise one random characteristic among 3 of your draggon.
    The more the strategy, the more one other feature will be multiplied.
  • Endurance is crucial. This is the "stamina" feature. During the first half, your draggon will get more and more (so will your adversary).
    This will lower its speed, stength and agility. He will catch some back for the second half, but not all.
    The more the endurance, the slower your draggon gets tired.
  • Bravery, Speed or Agility vs your adversary owns metrics may be used to decide of the probability of an offensive action.
  • Power and agility decide of the outcome of a possible strike: clean shot or miss
  • Agility of the defensor decides of the probability to save a goal.

That being said, keep in mind that the rules of our simulator are complex and let randomness play a role.
Some draggons will have near the perfect profile and may win more often, but it would be extremely rare for a single draggon to win all its matches
(we tested on thousands of virtual matches, the maths look good).
so, every draggon has some chances to win, and you have some insights of what features may play a more proeminent role.
