How to Prepare for Battle
To help our fellow badlanders prepare for the tournament, ZenSports and Blockchain Badlands will be hosting a community Xonotic night on Friday, December 3rd, at 8 PM EST. We will all hop on Xonotic together and help each other learn the mechanics of such an awesome game! While the Xonotic Badlander Bash will feature 1v1 Duels, playing team-based modes in Xonotic is a ton of fun too! Not only this, but some of the Xonotic legends who play in the ZenSports Xonotic tournaments will be making themselves available to tutor their fellow badlanders all about the game and how to win! Some of these legends have been playing the game for more than a decade, so the advice they provide will be priceless.
The Xonotic Badlander Bash will feature up to sixty-four contestants facing off in a bracket-style, double-elimination tournament on the ZenSports app. Player’s will be playing “Duels,” a 1v1 mode with a twelve-minute time limit. In Duel, players will spawn with only two base weapons and be tasked with picking up the remainder of their arsenal from floor loot. In addition to weaponry, armor and health pickups will also spawn on the map. Contestants will play all matches with a best-of-one format until the final eight badlanders remain. Each series will then become best-of-three, with the grand finals being a best-of-five. Tournament organization will occur in the Blockchain Badlands Discord, so make sure you make it clear you have qualified by messaging our GM of Esports, kanyeshrayz(Jacob)#1980, to let him know!
The Xonotic Badlander Bash will feature a prize pool of ten Badlanders + $1000 in USDT. To qualify for the $1000 portion of the prizes, you must be a pre-existing badlander owner at the tournament’s start time. Specific prize distributions are located on the ZenSports app by heading to the tournament home screen and clicking the “Prize Pool” tab.
