How to Play

Arc8 Tournaments are match-made multiplayer games where players compete in specific games using their skills. When competing against other players –whether in 1v1 practise, matches or in any tournament–you can be sure that other players are competing with exactly the same level setup.

What are the game modes available on Arc8?

1v1 Practice
  • Practice mode of the 1v1 Match, where you play against one opponent with a similar skill rating (which is a score each player has based on their experience and skill level)
  • Entrance fee is paid in credits, as are the rewards (credits are free in-game currency)
  • You can choose from 3 different tiers with varying entry fees and rewards
  • When both scores are submitted, the results are published and the prizes are distributed
1v1 Match
  • Player-versus-player match in which participants are matched according to their skill rating
  • Entrance fee is paid by both players in GMEE Tokens; the winner earns GMEE Tokens
  • Arc8 charges players a platform fee 10% for hosting each match
  • Prize pools are funded by match entrance fees paid by players
  • When both scores are submitted, the results are published and the prizes are distributed
Tournament
  • Skill-based game competition for groups of players of all levels
  • Tournaments are time-limited, and can last from a few hours to several days
  • Results scored during the tournament are displayed in the event's leaderboard; only the highest score achieved by each player is uploaded to the leaderboard
  • The entrance fee to the tournament is paid by players in GMEE Tokens; top players earn GMEE Tokens from the prize pool
  • The prize pool is fixed, communicated ahead of start of the tournament and funded by the Game Operations pool
  • Depending on the game, certain tournaments are single-entry only in order to prevent players from getting an unfair advantage by replaying the same randomised game over and over again (such as Solitaire Star or Pirate Solitaire)
Rapid Tournaments (Group Matches)
  • An experimental battle mode new in Season 6
  • Players compete in small group match tournaments. Instead of being set for a certain time period (as with regular tournaments), it it set for a certain number of players.
  • When filled, another starts. If it is not filled, it expires and entry fees are returned.
  • There is always one rapid tournament running per game per rank.
  • You can still gain or lose LP in these matches. You cannot see the leaderboard until you have submitted your score.
Sponsored Tournament / Token Takeover
  • Time-limited and skill-based game competition for groups of players of all levels
  • Results scored during the tournament are displayed in the event's leaderboard; only the highest score achieved by each player is uploaded to the leaderboard
  • The entrance fee is paid in credits (free in-game currency); top players earn GMEE Tokens from the prize pool
  • The prize pool is fixed, communicated ahead of start of the tournament and funded by the Game Operations pool

What tournaments are coming and who determines the prize pools?

  • Initially, the GAMEE team is setting tournaments and prize pools. We will be experimenting with different durations of tournaments and prize pools to make the experience perfect for the community
  • Occasionally, there are sponsored tournaments in which you can win other tokens such as $TOWER, QUICK and REVV. They will be marked in the Arc8 app as being sponsored tournaments
  • Over time, it will be the players who will have voting rights on prize pool distributions, and you will be able to host custom tournaments for others. For more information on this, please follow our roadmap and future announcements

Are any new games coming to Arc8?

  • Yes. Arc8 started with 10 games at launch, but the GAMEE team is always updating the Arc8 experience on a regular basis. Secondly, we are looking for ways to enable anyone to host their game on Arc8. Follow our roadmap and future announcements

Why do you charge fees in the tournaments?

  • With fees collected from the tournaments, we are building a treasury of GMEE tokens.
