In a tournament hosted by Undead Blocks in partnership with Polkastarter Gaming, a player who goes by the in-game name (IGN) ShinyatheNinj won $10,000 ZBUX, a native token of Undead Blocks, which translates to $1000 USD. Unlike other blockchain-based games, Undead Blocks frequently holds prized tournaments. This helps interested players truly utilize the Play-to-Earn model and win exciting rewards.
Blockchain gaming has most certainly revolutionized the traditional gaming industry. With a wide variety of games now implementing blockchain technology, we are slowly witnessing prominent game developers shifting to this newer model. The downside to this shift is that new blockchain titles are coming out every day and some of the projects do not live up to their promise. Released in May 2022, Undead Blocks hopes to live to the expectations of the players with its engaging gameplay and a viable Play-to-Earn model where users are actually rewarded for the time they invest in the game.
Undead Blocks’ MP5 Massacre Event
Undead Blocks has quickly gained user popularity due to its fan-favorite zombie FPS shooter premise. It also has Solo, Squads, and Speed Run modes to make the gameplay fun while retaining user interest and unlike many other blockchain-based games, there is no skill barrier in this game. This means that all users, regardless of their past experience, will find this game enjoyable. Additionally, they can also compete in various sponsored tournaments.
The MP5 Massacre event which was recently held on 29th-30th July by Undead Blocks, in partnership with Polkastarter Gaming, saw a large number of users compete for a shot at the $10,000 USD prize pool. Users were only allowed to use the MP5 weapon and were tasked to kill as many zombies as they could during this event. The $10,000 USD prize pool was distributed among 1000 players with first place getting $10,000 ZBUX ($1000 USD).
The tournament turned out to be extremely competitive with users not making it into the top 100 even after 370 zombie kills. Ultimately, ShinyatheNinja was declared the of this tournament and they received a lion’s share of the prize money: $10,000 ZBUX ($1000 USD).
