Teams from around the world will compete in the biggest EVE tournament of the year during the 17th edition of the League Championship.EVE Online, CCP Games’ iconic sci-fi strategy MMORPG, will debut NFT Collectible Kills in the tournament, which begins November 6 through November 14.
With this in mind, Kill Certificate NFTs will be distributed by CCP Games on the energy-efficient Tezos blockchain. Characters who make the final hit will be eligible for Kill Certificate NFTs, which players can trade and collect.
With its first tournament in 2005, EVE’s League Tournament was one of the first eSports events in the gaming world. This year, players will receive Kill Certificate NFTs at the end of the tournament to commemorate their participation in the 17th Annual EVE Online League Tournament.
To top it all off, there are 280 limited edition ships up for grabs, which are only available to the winners of the League Tournament. In fact, these one-of-a-kind space ships have been at the center of many of EVE’s most infamous stories, and collectors and PvPers alike appreciate them.
In a move to embrace innovation and sustainability, CCP Games has chosen the Tezos blockchain for their NFTs. Clearly, unlike typical proof-of-work blockchains, Tezos’ groundbreaking proof-of-stake approach uses 2 million times less energy to secure their network. As a result, Tezos operates in an environmentally friendly manner with low energy use and low carbon impact.
Most importantly, EVE Online is a free-to-play spaceship MMORPG that allows players to choose their route from a vast array of alternatives. In an ever-expanding sandbox, the game offers space exploration, massive PvP and PvE conflicts, and a vibrant player economy.
What’s more, Eve Online allows players to engage in a variety of careers and activities such as warfare, politics, piracy, trade and exploration with hundreds of thousands of people across 7,000 star systems.
To highlight, Alliance Championship XVII was a four-day, 40-team, 10-v-10, double-elimination main event, preceded by a two-day “feeder” tournament earlier this year. In total, 80 teams competed, representing over 100,000 qualified players.
Most notably, CCP has once again partnered with EVE-NT to airlift player talent from around the world to CCP’s offices in Reykjavik, Iceland, where the tournament will be streamed live via Twitch. To note, the tournament begins on November 6 and 7 and runs through November 14, with the final taking place on Sunday, November 14, 2021.
