FAQ

How do I participate in the leaderboard challenges?

To participate, simply log in to the game and navigate to the designated leaderboard challenges. From there, you can start competing by completing runs and earning points.

Do I need to pay to participate in the leaderboard challenges?

No, participation in the leaderboard challenges is free for all players. However, there is an option to purchase additional runs to increase your chances of earning more points.

What are Ascension Seals and $GOG rewards, and how do they differ?

Ascension Seals are the in-game resources required to ascend Guardians to make them Radiant (i.e. mint your web2 assets). In the first two weeks we will reward Ascension Seals as we tweak and balance in the early stages of launch, players will also be able to purchase Ascension seals via in-app purchases. By the end of the second week, players will be able to use their $GOG Tokens to buy Ascension Seals in Eri’s shop. At the point where we, in partnership with Guardians Guild Limited, switch over to rewarding players $GOG Tokens, players can choose to either keep their rewards as $GOG tokens or use their reward to purchase Ascension Seals. 

How are leaderboard prizes distributed?

Leaderboard prizes are typically distributed based on your performance relative to other players. The more points you earn, the higher your ranking on the leaderboard, and the better your chances of winning prizes.

What are Founder NFTs, and how do I obtain them?

Founder NFTs are exclusive digital collectibles minted for the game's founders and top performers in leaderboard challenges. They can be obtained as rewards for achieving certain milestones or rankings in the game.

Where are you getting more Founder NFTs?

We will be minting additional Founder NFTs to help us promote the game, these Guardians will be allocated as leaderboard prizes to help the game grow. We will not be selling these Guardians and they will not generate direct sales from their distribution. The maximum increase in supply to Founder Guardians is capped at 10% of the existing supply, pro-rata to each Guardian’s individual supply. We will mint this reserved supply at our discretion. The date we will capture this supply is 08-May-2024 (prior to Cracked Hearts Release). 

I thought Founder NFTs were never getting minted again?

As part of the original Founder sale, we had explicitly reserved the right to mint an additional 10% of supply to be used exclusively for promotional purposes. We have not exercised the right, the intention was always that we would exercise this right at a time when the playerbase of the game is expected to increase. We are choosing to exercise this right at the game’s global Act 1 launch. These Guardians will never be sold by us and will only be distributed by us in give-aways and promotions. For more information on the terms of the original Founder sale please follow this link: https://guildofguardians.medium.com/heroes-guild-of-guardians-founder-sale-393cd0dc33fd

Which Founders do you plan on minting?

We will Mint all the unminted 1/1 Founder Mythics. Importantly this includes a group of Founder Mythic 1/1s that due to RNG were never minted in the original sale. The other Founders and their Chromas will be minted in strict proportion to their existing supply. 

Are there any restrictions on who can participate in the leaderboard challenges?

Leaderboard challenges are open to all players, but some challenges may have minimum requirements or restrictions based on player level or progression in the game. Future game modes and seasons may require certain configurations of squads and Guardians.

How often do leaderboard challenges occur, and how long do they last?

Leaderboard challenges typically occur on a monthly or weekly basis, with specific start and end dates announced in advance. The duration of each challenge may vary, so be sure to check the game for updates regularly.
