The world of eSports have been expanding steadily over the past years and viewership went over 350million last year. Tournament prize money have gone up as well with over $1.5billion given out to players in 2018. These numbers don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon and more people are getting to know about eSports each year.
Arena Match is an upcoming eSports gaming app which allows everyone to put their gaming skills to the test and compete with other players to win real cash or Arena Match Gold.
Besides, pro-player tournaments and locally hosted scheduled events, there is not an opportunity for the dedicated players to wager cash on the eSports market. Arena Match seems to offer the solution by building an eSports platform that will give to players the opportunity to bet on their own skills.
Players can bet against Arena Match, in solo Skill Challenges, daily high score leaderboards, head to head matches, and Battle Royale modes. In order to win the bet, you have to accomplish predefined challenges based on your performance history and the challenge’s difficulty. You can bet for example that you will get into the top 5 in the next game of ranked solo PUBG.
As of now, Arena Match has these games on their roadmap.
- PUBG- Currently in Private Beta
- Fornite - Coming Soon
- Apex Legends - Coming this Summer
- CS:GO- Coming this Fall
Most of us are indeed familiar with these titles and have even played them before. But why pick Arena Match to play those games when there are other gaming apps out there that offer similar functions? Because Arena Match is adopting the Enjin blockchain SDK for Esports gaming perks! Yes, you will soon be able to have Enjin backed items that are usable and the first game that they are going to integrate is PUBG.
Arena Match will be launching skill challenges with PUBG and players will be able to use the Enjin backed perks to help them complete the challenges. However, there will only be 5 legendary skill perks with each having a limited quantity. Moreover, these skill perks will have unlimited use in the skill challenges.
