The first Cheeze Wizards tournament will take place during the summer of 2019.
We’ll be announcing the exact start date for the first Cheeze Wizards tournament soon. It will be a few weeks long, and there will be multiple events each day.
There are three phases to the Cheeze Wizards tournament:
- Phase I – The Gathering. You can summon Wizards and form parties
- Phase II – The Greet and Beat. You can summon Wizards, form parties, and duel
- Phase III – The Championship. Blue mold begins, and Wizards duel until only one remains
The timing for each phase will be clarified when the official tournament schedule is released.
From May 17th to May 24th, we’re holding an early summoning for our biggest fans. During the pre-sale, you can summon the first Wizards ever created. An official public Gathering will kickoff the first Cheeze Wizards tournament a little later.
The last and most powerful Wizard in the tournament wins. They are crowned the Big Cheeze, and they receive both the honor and ether that comes with the title.
In addition to the Big Cheeze prize, there will be side quests and party prizes to pursue. And if you power up a Wizard but don’t want to wait to become the Big Cheeze, you can sell your powered-up Wizard to another player via a secondary market.
The title of Big Cheeze comes with a whole lot of cheddar.
We are kicking off the first tournament by seeding 100 ETH (approximately US$20,000) into the Big Cheeze prize. Every time a Wizard is summoned, half of the amount spent on the summon goes to the Big Cheeze prize. The remaining half will go to party prizes, quest rewards, and gas and production costs tied to Cheeze Wizards.
Blue mold enters the tournament during the third and final phase, overtaking Wizards with less power and making them too tired to continue the tournament.
During the third and final phase of the tournament, blue mold begins to take over Tournament Tower. If your Wizard has less power than the blue mold, they’ll be removed from the tournament immediately.
The blue mold’s power doubles every 24 hours. If you opt into emails, you will be warned via email if the blue mold threatens your Wizard. If the blue mold threatens your Wizard, you have two potential options:
- You can duel other Wizards until you win enough power to survive the blue mold
- You can have your Wizard ascend
No matter what happens to your Wizard in the tournament, it will remain in your wallet and can be used in future gameplay or third-party applications.
If the blue mold threatens your Wizard, they have the option to ascend. If they successfully ascend, their current power triples and they’re safe from the blue mold.
Ascension is risky! Your Wizard cannot challenge others while ascending, but if your Wizard is challenged, they will automatically accept the all-or-nothing duel. You will need to either participate in the duel or forfeit.
When a Wizard ascends, one of three things will happen:
- They go unchallenged and triple their power at the end of the duel window
- They are challenged, win, and gain enough power to survive the next blue mold growth
- They are challenged, lose, and are eliminated from the tournament.
Being the Big Cheeze isn’t the only way to win in Cheeze Wizards!
Side quests are periodically revealed in Cheeze Wizards and they are unlocked when their conditions are met. If you meet the qualifying criteria, you can participate in the side quest and try to win the reward! Side quest rewards are distributed at the end of the tournament.
