The Axie team plans to shift their attention back to the Axies now that the switch from Classic to Origin has been completed. In a Philippine Web3 Festival conference held on November 15th, the company stated that the community would play a significant role in improving Origins, which still needed a lot of work.
Axie Infinity co-founder and conference participant Jeff Zirlin reintroduced an idea that will restore the ecology to its original state, as pristine as it was two centuries ago. The company also revealed that it cannot rely on any single game experience to make the ecosystem succeed. The relationship between collecting, taking care of pets, and playing Axie is what makes the game what it is. People should invest emotionally in their Axies, Zirlin further added.
Over the course of two days, Manila hosted two separate Axie Infinity: Origins eSports competitions with wildly different formats. The MMG Axie Master’s League and the Axie Open Manila 2022 were the two tournaments in question. The primary distinctions between the two competitions were the regulations employed, the venues used, and the rosters of the competing teams.
As a part of the PH Web3 Festival, YGG hosted the first tournament. Among the original 16 competitors is Plant Bug Rage, a team made up almost entirely of other Plant Bug teams. Axie Infinity’s grand finals featured performances from Quests and SpamAndShips. After winning all four Quests 4 matches, Spam was declared the victor and awarded the prize.
Axie Infinity is a blockchain-based game in which players win in-game rewards by collecting Axies. It was developed by Sky Mavis, a Vietnamese video game studio, and is based on their Ronin side-chain protocol. The team is focused on constructing a digital country where community members can play together with their own inventions, win awards, and reside in Lunacia.
