REVV Racing TOWER Cup launches on 3 September 2021 with US$150,000+ prizes for over 1,000 winners
US$150,000 prizes in REVV and TOWER tokens, plus Gems for Animoca Brands’ tower defense mobile game Crazy Defense Heroes!
The REVV Racing Sprint Sessions have just ended, but our engines are still running hot! REVV Motorsport presents to you a new major REVV Racing tournament: the TOWER Cup, starting at 8 a.m. (UTC) on 3 September 2021!
Introducing the REVV Racing TOWER Cup
The TOWER Cup is a 6-day tournament for the latest version of REVV Racing — we have updated the effects of driving on gravel and grass, and integrated new cars in the game.
The TOWER Cup is conducted in the same manner as the Alpha Inaugural and Sprint Sessions, where each Try lets you enter one race consisting of 3 laps. This is a time-attack-style tournament, where the standings on the leaderboard are determined by your fastest total race time.
To compete in the TOWER Cup, you need a REVV Racing car NFT, which can be purchased on OpenSea. Please note that the TOWER Cup is only accessible by the cars which are available by the beginning of the tournament; any new cars minted during the tournament will not be supported in this event.
If you have already used up all 20 free Tries, each additional Try costs 5 REVV. REVV Racing is on the Polygon blockchain, so you will need to use REVV that has been bridged to Polygon. You can either bridge your REVV from Etherium here or get REVV directly from different Quickswap pools on Polygon:
REVV Racing car holders will automatically receive a small amount of Polygon tokens (if they don’t have any in the wallet) when they connect their wallet to the REVV Racing website for the first time; these tokens are to cover transaction fees. The only requirement to receive the free Polygon tokens is that your wallet must contain a REVV Racing car NFT. If you obtain a car NFT after you have already connected your wallet to the REVV Racing website, you must log out and reconnect your wallet in order to receive the Polygon tokens.
REVV Racing TOWER Cup Prizes
The prize pool for the REVV Racing TOWER Cup for the top 1,000 players consists of US$150,000 worth of TOWER and REVV, plus Gems for the Crazy Defense Heroes (CDH) mobile game. Token prizes are distributed as follows with ⅓ payable in TOWER and ⅔ payable in REVV:
Additionally, the top 3 players will get a REVV Motorsport NFT Trophy, and all participants in the TOWER Cup will receive 500 gems in Crazy Defense Heroes. These Gems can give you a kick-start into the world of TOWER!
To help prevent malicious actors, and ensure that active players are being rewarded for their play, the top 20 players will need to pass a KYC process (which can be found in the bottom of the REVV Racing website) before receiving rewards.
In order to be eligible to receive Crazy Defense Heroes Gems, you have to first download Crazy Defense Heroes, and then connect the same wallet address you used to play REVV Racing with your Crazy Defense Heroes User ID at crazydefenseheroes.com by 11 September 2021, 8 a.m. (UTC). Gem rewards will be sent by 30 September 2021. You can read this Medium post to learn more about how to link your wallet to your Crazy Defense Heroes User ID. Note that currently only MetaMask wallets are supported.
One player can only qualify for one position per event. REVV Racing reserves the right to disqualify any players in races where foul play is suspected. If a player is disqualified, the following racers will move up on the leaderboard.
To qualify for the prize in the TOWER Cup, you will need to hold in your wallet your car NFT that you used to achieve your leaderboard standing, until the final winners list has been confirmed. This means that if a winning player transfers the car they used to achieve the winning time to another wallet before the final winners list is confirmed, they will forfeit their position.
TOWER: blending Free-to-Play gaming with Play-to-Earn
TOWER is a utility token for the successful tower defense franchise of games developed and published by Animoca Brands, which includes the mobile games Crazy Kings and Crazy Defense Heroes, and an upcoming blockchain PC game.
TOWER is the basis of an initiative to blend traditional Free-to-Play (F2P) gaming with the Play-to-Earn (P2E) potential of blockchain gaming. The goal of TOWER is to build a system that maintains balance and equitability in traditional Free-to-Play games while introducing the benefits of blockchain, including NFTs, DeFi, and governance. The philosophy and intent of TOWER are outlined here.
REVV Racing: the first-of-its-kind blockchain game
REVV Racing is a skill-based action arcade automobile racing simulation giving you full and real-time first-person control of your car. It is the newest play-to-earn title in the REVV Motorsport metaverse of racing games, and is a milestone in Animoca Brands’ ambitious plan to develop blockchain-based games that have the quality, look, and feel of traditional video games.
Hire a Driver (v0.1)
The ‘Hire Driver’ feature allows players who own cars to share their Tries and cars with anyone else. This feature allows car owners to “rent” out their cars to other drivers, and still enjoy the benefits of Play-to-Earn without the need to race themselves — a great way to stimulate collaboration between more commercially minded players and those with the racing skills needed to win.
Please note that this feature is a very early version, and offers no assurances of cooperation between players. Any arrangements players make involving this system is purely at their own risk and neither Animoca Brands nor REVV Racing can be held responsible for any problems or disputes arising from this system.
This release of REVV Racing is alpha, meaning that it is an early version of a game that is still being developed and tested. Outside of content and features, numerous updates, improvements and additions are in the pipeline for the current experience. This is an early development build which will be undergoing optimisation, bugs fixes, and balance. Anyone participating in the game should be aware that issues and bugs will be present. We’re open to your feedback, and hope you enjoy this first taste of REVV Racing.
