To reward VBA GMs for playing in season0, we’re dropping DIMES, an off-chain, in-game currency.
When we launched, the DIMES earned were be used as automatic entries into our rewards drawings. The more DIMES you collected, the greater chance you had to win.
Now, DIMES are storable and can be used to purchase VBA Players, Player Packs, IRL merchandise and other special items from our Box Office, which will be launching early September 2022.
Our philosophy has always been to ship fast and build in public. To make sure that we protect our economy, DIMES will be on training wheels to start so that we can build up the DIMES ecosystem slowly and deliberately, ensuring that there is a robust economy for earning and spending.
You can earn DIMES based on your league placement and performance in weekly contests
In s0, everyone regardless of rank or players will be eligible to earn DIMES, and winning will allow you to earn more.
For now, here are the expected rewards in DIMES based on competitive league and finish order:
Notes on Weekly Performance:
If your weekly round robin has more than 8 people, teams who finish 9th or lower will get the same amount of DIMES as the 8th place finisher.
If you have a bye that counts as 0.5 wins that week. For example, a team that is 1-1 is ahead of someone who is 1-2 but behind someone who is 2-2 or 2-1.
If there is a tie in W-L at the end of a week, there will be a tiebreaker based on points scored. If there is a tie after that, both teams will be rewarded the DIMES for the place they are tied for on the leaderboard.
If you forfeit any games because you have fewer than 5 players in your lineup at the time of roster lock-in, you will not receive any DIMES.
