Details of the Axie Infinity Esports Grant 3 Schedule
Although Axie Infinity is just releasing the Esports Grant 3 schedule, some competitions are already underway. These contests are divided into the Challenger, Dragon, Bear, and Wolf tiers. The tournaments include daily, weekly, leagues, and large one-offs.
Below is the breakdown of the run of activities:
- Bear Tier: Sura Infinity Cup, BigYak Beer League, Metacon, Tonha Axie League, Brasileirinho, etc.
- Wolf Tier: AAG Axie Master Cup, Play1st Axie African Cup, Lysto SEA Invitational, E4E Open Tournament, Crypto Days: Axie Infinity, etc.
- Dragon Tier: LSL Season 4 Online, Axie Open Manila, Axie Brazil Minor, LSL Season 4 Finals, E4E Vietnam Minor, etc
During the announcement, Axie Infinity admitted they received almost three times the expected requests. While this is a sign of interest in the ecosystem, it puts the team in a difficult situation. They had to prioritize some competitions over others. Therefore, not all tournament requests were granted.
In addition, Sky Mavis also had to balance the reward system and ensure sustainability. Although players are the key elements of tournaments, organizers are equally important. Therefore, Axie Infinity decided that 80% of the 160,000 $AXS would serve as player rewards. In comparison, organizers will share 20% for logistics and other contributions.
Meanwhile, this schedule is not final, and the team will update these details as necessary. Furthermore, more Vietnam and Brazil qualifiers will be added to the timetable as time passes.
