🦋AXP is LIVE in Project T!
Experience the thrill of the hunt. Catch Butterflies, Earn AXP
AXP is LIVE in Project T! Earn Axie Experience Points by performing a variety of actions in Project T like training in the Dojo and catching butterflies! Use the AXP you earn to ascend your axies on App.axie and prepare for part evolution.
We’ve introduced two new experiences in Project T: butterfly catching and the Axie Showdown mini-game.
Starting today, anyone who owns at least five axies can now access Project T!
In August, we launched an early prototype of a digital meetup game called Project T. We imagined it would become a hub for our community to get together – and it has! Over the past few months, we’ve seen community members use Project T to gather with their friends, compete in various mini-games, and win leaderboard rewards. Today, we’re excited to introduce a new layer of gameplay by integrating AXP into the game. We’ve also opened up whitelist access even further. These are important steps towards strengthening the connective tissue between various Axie games. Here’s what’s happening with Project T:
Earn AXP in Project T
AXP: Axie Experience Points. Check out our full announcement on AXP here.
In July, we introduced Axie Experience Points (AXP) to Lunacia. AXP is a stepping stone towards axie vertical progression and part evolution, and was only earnable by playing Origins and Sky Smash – until now. Starting today, players can earn up to 1000 AXP per Axie each day in Project T.
Check the graphic above for details on the different streams of AXP that are live today.
Axies now have new streams of AXP beyond the Origins arena! It can be hard for less competitive players + collectible axies to earn AXP via Origins. That’s why this new stream is so important. This is just the beginning: more ways to earn AXP, more opportunities to ascend axies on the path to part evolution.
Note that while you can earn AXP in Project T, you will not be able to see your total AXP in the game. Go to App.axie to see how much AXP you have.
Wait a second… According to that graphic, you can earn AXP by catching butterflies?! 🦋🦋
The Butterfly Effect & Axie Showdown
We’ve shipped two new features to the game: butterfly catching and the Axie Showdown! Here’s what they’re all about:
The Butterfly Effect
In Project T, players can now use nets to catch butterflies – and earn AXP! Earn up to 100 AXP when you catch an endangered one, and add 2x multiplier when a special event is live. Each use of a net also grants 1 AXP whether you catch a butterfly or not. Here’s how you can embrace your inner butterfly hunter:
Step 1: Buy a net from Shillin near the Town Board.
Step 2: Approach a butterfly with your net equipped
Step 3: Press “Interact” when a green exclamation mark appears
Congrats, you’ve caught a butterfly!
Note that we’ll be retiring confetti, the trivia game and replacing it with a special butterfly collecting event featuring a double AXP boost. Same time, same place (in town). Monday at 11am EST (11pm PH) and Wednesday at 11pm EST (11am PH, Thursday).
Stay tuned for more on this!
Axie Showdown is an experimental turn-based dice minigame where players can earn up to 30 AXP per match. Go to the Town with an axie and enter the Showdown hut with a friend. In Axie Showdown, your objective is to earn twenty Victory Points or eliminate all of your opponents – whichever comes first! Roll the dice and choose whether you heal your axies, attack an opponent, or re-roll.
There are two ways to earn Victory Points. First, the axie who stands on the tree stump in the middle of the arena will gain Victory Points for every turn they stay there. Second, combinations of three identical numbers will yield Victory Points: three 1s give you one Point, three 2s give you two points, and three 3s give you three points. If an axie’s HP reaches zero, they have lost that match.
This is a small minigame, and Project T is still an early Prototype. So, we’re looking forward to hearing your feedback on Axie Showdown!
New Building Voting
Congratulations to the BigYak community for earning an exclusive clubhouse during the last round of Building Voting! The clubhouse has arrived and we're in the process of renovating the interior. We’d like to thank everyone for their patience as we build it out and will let you know when everything is live. In the meantime, remember to cast your vote for the next building. Who will get next week’s clubhouse – Mystics, Sumos, BigYaks, or Japanese axies?
Expanding Access to Project T
Today, we’re opening our doors to Project T to the broader axie community! Anyone who owns at least five axies can now play Project T.
Make sure the Ronin wallet you use to access Project T has at least five axies.
We’ve added a live-player counter to Project T’s town, meaning that we can now shoot for the record books when organizing digital meetups.
AXP is the first step towards vertical axie progression and part evolution. It's important that it be available in a wide variety of experiences and accessible to different types of axies.
Project T's integration of AXP creates a new source of AXP that will appeal to casual, social, cozy gamers and collectors.
Let’s keep pushing.
