**No-Holds-Barred, CryptoBlades PvP is Live!**
CryptoBladers, today we launch our completed** Player versus Player (PvP) game mode**! PvP is a feature where players will wager **SKILL** tokens against other CryptoBladers to battle in an **arena **that is based on character level. After selecting your gear and entering, you will be randomly **paired **up against an **opponent **ready to fight. While in the **arena**, others will be able to **battle **you even while you’re attacking! After winning your attack or successfully defending, you will **earn **SKILL token **rewards** and rank points! In addition, the **top **3 players who achieve the **highest **rank points in the weekly season will be awarded a portion of the overall pool! To celebrate this launch, the three most populated pools, levels 31–40, 41–50, and 51–60 have had **10 SKILL** added to each **winner’s **pool!
Regarding the full feature launch, “We’ve been **actively **optimizing the contracts, reducing gas costs, implementing more interaction, and **balancing** the formulas to achieve a real **PVP** feel where everyone can participate. Playings using a 3-star sword and 2-star shield have a much higher probability of beating someone with a 5-star sword and 4-star shield than before. If you can **defeat **someone of a higher power, you will be rewarded a ton of ranked points versus if you beat someone of lower power. This gives everyone a chance to make it to the top of the leaderboard and claim the HUGE end-of-season reward,” states the CryptoBlades lead PvP developer.
CrytpoBlades PvP is an **innovative **system that works entirely **on-chain**. This is something new in **blockchain**, but we have been **successful **and are just getting started. CryptoBlades is one of the only Dapps where people can compete in a **ranked **PVP system to participate for substantial rewards if players win and or place at the top of leaderboards to end the season. Philip Devine, CEO of Riveted Games and Developer of CryptoBlades, adds, “PvP is the first step towards our Blockchain eSports initiatives in 2022 and further diversifies our players’ earnings potential. Our ability to deliver the most sustainable Play-to-Earn experience drives CryptoBlades and our underlying SKILL token at their core.” The potential for a feature like this is enormous, and we will keep innovating to create a fun, interactive, and competitive experience!
