Competitive Mode

Loaded Lions: Mane City offers a thrilling Competitive Mode in time-limited events. Your expertise from mastering the game’s Normal Mode comes into play. Players start each event from scratch in terms of progression (that means Gold, Diamonds, Businesses, Avatar Level, Furniture are not carried over), with the exception of your hard-earned Vouchers and Arid Plains, creating as much of a level playing field for all participants. At the end of each competitive event, players will not only receive Voucher rewards, but will also be credited with even more of the Gold to their existing Normal Mode progress; the amount of Gold is dependent on the Gold spent during the event.

More importantly, your Normal Mode progress remains untouched and will always be preserved. This lets you enjoy the challenges of Competitive Mode without worrying about your main city's growth. Test your entrepreneurial wit and skills against your fellow tycoons as you compete for the top spots in the leaderboard! Attractive prizes and bragging rights await the best tycoons.

Competitive Mode Events

The start and end date for each Competitive Mode event will be announced in advance. Additionally, the duration for each of them will vary. Each Competitive Mode event might include certain twists and turns, requiring participants to adapt their strategies and change them at a moment’s notice to come out on top.

Any new feature launch for the game will first be tested in Normal Mode, this is to adhere to our commitment to ensuring a smooth, bug-free gaming experience. By testing features in Normal Mode, we are allowing our team adequate time to address any potential issues or bugs that may arise. Moreover, the testing itself also provides an opportunity for players to familiarise themselves with the game mechanics, experiment with different strategies, and fully immerse themselves in the game environment before diving into competitive play.

Competitive Mode Leaderboard

To reward continuous effort, the Leaderboard rankings follow a score-based system, scores will be credited hourly and players’ final rankings are based on their Total Score at the end of the Event. Here is how the Total Score is calculated:

  • Players are credited a Score every hour based on their Gold generated per second ranking (includes Gold and Booster bonues)

    • Score = 3M / (Rank ^ 0.9)

  • New score credited are tripled each day when the Event starts

  • Total Score sums up all Scores earned during the Event

To succeed, you'll need to play strategically and manage your resources effectively. Make the most out of every second that you have during the event. A maximum of 1,000 players will be rewarded with Vouchers on the Leaderboard, and remember, rankings will be updated live. You’ll need to stay on your toes and adapt quickly in order to maintain or improve your position.

Prize Pool

Competitive Mode in Loaded Lions: Mane City features an enticing prize pool that is distributed to the top players on the Leaderboard. The prize pool grows dynamically and is updated live throughout the event. A percentage of player spending on Diamonds in the Competitive mode will contribute to the growth of prize pools, current and future events. These percentages will vary across the Competitive event. As you climb the ranks, you'll secure a larger proportion of the prize pool, making every position gained all the more rewarding. From time to time, we may also do a one-time addition to the prize pool!

Players ranked on the Leaderboard will receive their prizes in the form of Vouchers, which can be spent in-game, redeemed for Diamonds at an exclusive rate or, converted to CRO on-chain. The more you achieve in Competitive Mode, and the more players that participate, the better your rewards will be. Stay focused and aim for the top spots!

Leaderboard Rewards Allocation

Prize Pool Allocation: Normal Case

When there are 1,000 players, the prize pool allocation will follow pre-defined percentages as shown below, descending down the ranks, and totaling 100% across all players;

The rewards allocation for the top 6 players are as follows:

  • 1st Place = 10%

  • 2nd Place = 5%

  • 3rd Place = 3%

  • 4th Place = 2%

  • 5th Place = 1.5%

  • 6th Place = 1.2%

The rewards allocation for the remaining players is defined by the equation shown below:

0.987^(Rank# - 7) x ≈0.01005…

Inserting a few examples;

  • 7th Place ≈ 1%

  • 10th Place ≈ 0.97%

  • 50th Place ≈ 0.57%

Prize Pool Allocation: Exceptional Case

When there are less than 1,000 players, the unallocated amount in the prize pool will be proportionally allocated to existing players. An example is provided below, assuming the event ended with only 3 players and a prize pool of 10B Vouchers, the unallocated amount of 82% will be proportionately allocated, giving the final allocation amounts:

  • 1st Place = 10% + 10%/18% x 82% ≈ 55.6% (or 5.56B Vouchers)

  • 2nd Place = 5% + 5%/18% x 82% ≈ 27.8% (or 2.78B Vouchers)

  • 3rd Place = 3% + 3%/18% x 82% ≈ 16.7% (or 1.67B Vouchers)

Special Rewards

Players who secure a spot on the Leaderboard won't just receive Vouchers as prizes. Special rewards may be given to them, with World Series I being Trophy and Tool NFTs, with more details coming soon for future events. These rewards will improve as your rank increases, giving you a competitive edge in both your normal gameplay and future Competitive Mode events. Stay tuned for more developments and exciting announcements about these unique rewards!

Special Land Mechanics

To provide a more exciting Competitive event, players will start the event with all the Arid Plains Land plots unlocked during the Normal Mode. Make sure to make good progress and buy as many Arid Plains as possible with in-game currency to have an edge at the start! Note that the Arid Plains unlocked in the Competitive Mode will also be retained in the Normal Mode. Note: you will have all your Land plots from Land NFTs as well.
