H1Z1 Pro League News from TwitchCon 2017!

At TwitchCon 2017 Twin Galaxies and Daybreak Games held a conference with the H1Z1 Pro Community to go over how the newly announced H1Z1 Pro League will operate.

One of the first topics addressed during the conference was regarding the franchise system for teams. Unlike most leagues, which currently require teams to compete and bid against each other while trying to buy into a league, the H1Z1 Pro League will be free. Teams wanting to compete in the league will apply and their applications will be approved based on criteria, such as: Team Brand, Financial Stability, and Proper Player Management. If approved a team will then be accepted into the league and required to meet certain conditions, such as the ability to provide their players with a $50,000 base salary for competing in the league.

Once approved by the league the teams will have free reign to build their roster for the first year if the players meet the following requirements:

  • Players must have achieved royalty in solo at any point before the end of preseason 7
  • Have a verified Twin Galaxies and Daybreak account that’s in good standing
  • Must be at least 17 years of age

Moving into the second year, Twin Galaxies will be building combined events that will establish a clear path for new players to become a professional and therefore qualify for the H1Z1 Pro League.

Another important point brought up during the conference was how exactly the teams and the players will make money while competing in the league. The main source of revenue for the league and its participants will consist of sponsorship deals, TV, and digital broadcasting rights, and of course everyone’s favorite: H1Z1 Pro League Crates! The current plan for crates is to release two to three H1Z1 Pro League Crates per year, these will highlight different teams and players who are competing in the H1Z1 Pro League. Overall the Teams will be given 25% of profits made from the league to help support the originations competing in the league and to provide a stable income for the players.

Speaking of teams and players, the league developers also announced the league’s Governance Community. The Community will have the final ruling on every change that impacts the league. The Governance Community will consist of the following members:

  • The Commissioner
  • Team Representative
  • Player Representative
  • Daybreak Representative
  • Twin Galaxies Representative

When it comes to any changes to the league, new rules, and more importantly changes to the game, the changes will only be implemented if the vote passes the community. This new league structure is one of the first of its kind and finally gives the Pro Players a direct voice in the game design and future of the game. This should help avoid problems moving forward, such as the Combat Update.

Something interesting that was addressed during the event was that they would not be enforcing any type of teaming rules moving forward. For example, since the league is based on a NASCAR point style system, if one team pulls ahead in the league the other teams would be allowed to team up and eliminate them before fighting each other. This is based on the mindset that the game will only allow for one winner; at some point, teams or players that decide to team together would have to face off against each other to determine the winner. With the lack of teaming rules, it will be interesting to see how it plays off but of course, just like everything else in the league, it is subject to change via the Governing Community.

On top of discussing the new league structures and the rules for the new league, the Daybreak team took the stage to answer some questions and provide a roadmap for what the course of the game will look like moving forward and what’s in the works. The following is on the list of features that will be coming:

  • Increasing Skill Gap
  • Working on Combat Tuning
  • Map Tuning
  • Improved Movement Quality
  • New Maps
  • Smaller Maps
  • New Weapons
  • Focusing on reducing the RNG
  • Pick your spawn point
  • Pro League Tournament Servers

Overall, the conference was very informative and offered great insight into Twin Galaxies and Daybreak’s plans moving forward with the H1Z1 Pro League, as well as the game itself. Judging by the success other games have seen from truly established leagues, it looks like the H1Z1 Pro League will ultimately be the next big thing for the H1Z1 community.

Dave Anthony, Founder & Creator of Call of Duty, is a WAX Advisor

Dave Anthony, the creator of Call of Duty, joined the WAX Token Team as an advisor. Curious what his thoughts on WAX and the digital items trading industry are? Here are some of the highlights from his recent article on Medium:

“WAX understands the value of a great user experience.

All gamers want to do is play games. They don’t wanna be worried about currency. They don’t wanna worry about “Am I gonna lose my money?” They just wanna play the game.”

 

“What WAX offers to the gamers is very exciting. I’m involved as this is improving the gamer experience.”

 

“Not being complacent in what they’ve done with their skins trading site OPSkins, [the WAX founders are] setting themselves up to revolutionize the gaming space with WAX, is definitely something I want to be involved in.

In the future, I think more and more gamers will use it; word of mouth will make it a phenomenon. I spent years thinking about this subject.”

 

“And the ability to monetize it has huge potential. I can’t see it doing anything other than exploding.”

Want to get involved in WAX? OPSkins customers have exclusive access between now and November 1st. Get started here.

The Most Expensive PUBG Outfit (Excluding the PLAYERUNKNOWN SET)

The PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS Marketplace has been quickly growing over the last few weeks, leaving many to wonder if PUBG will turn out the be the next gold rush for skin traders. Continuing in our coverage of the growing PUBG Marketplace, this week we will take a look at the most expensive outfit in the game. We excluded the big-ticket items from the PLAYERUNKNOWN SET, which has already had many of its items reach the price limit it can be traded for on the Steam Marketplace.

Once you take away the PLAYERUNKNOWN SET, the price of items in the game drop rather dramatically.  For example, instead of paying $444 on the PLAYERUNKNOWN’S Trench Coat you can get the COAT from the SURVIVOR CRATE for $50. Also in comparison, the GREY SHIRT runs for $80 and the RED HI-TOP TRAINERS for $230, whereas the SCHOOL SHIRT (OPEN) runs for $11 and the SNEAKERS (WHITE) for $25. This is a price difference of almost $700.

Moving down the list you start to come across some lower priced items such as the FINGERLESS GLOVES (LEATHER), CAMO CAP, and TWITCH PRIME BALACLAVA which are all under $15 an item. Up next is the oddest item on the list: the PROTECTIVE GLASSES from the WANDERER CRATE. They are currently sitting at $25 on the OPSkins Marketplace. Finally, to close out the list of the most expensive items in PUBG excluding the PLAYERUNKNOWN SET, is the SCHOOL SKIRT. The SCHOOL SKIRT is currently sitting at $255.

The total price of the current most expensive outfit is $378.66 at the time of publication. While still quite expensive, its nowhere near the price of the PLAYERUNKNOWN SET, which is currently $1,748.89 for the complete set or $1,553.33 if you buy the items individually from the OPSkins Marketplace.

So, what do you think about the most expensive outfit excluding the PLAYERUNKNOWN SET? Do you have any of the items? Any specific item you’re looking to pick up on the market? Be sure to let us know by dropping a comment below!

Instant Sell is Now Available for PUBG and H1Z1: KotK!

Looking to sell your PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS or H1Z1:KotK items quickly? We got you covered! Traders now have the ability to instantly sell your PUBG and H1Z1: KotK items by using the Instant Sell Feature!

We rolled this out a few months ago for CS:GO but based on it’s success, we recently expanded it to include these two games. Instead of listing your item for sale and then waiting for a buyer to purchase it on the marketplace, you now have the option to directly sell your PUBG and H1Z1: KotK items directly to OPSkins for the price that we offer you.

In return for your item, when you use Instant Sell you will have the choice of getting either regular OPSkins Wallet Funds which you can cash out for real money, or Operation Points (OP) which is basically OPSkins store credit that can be used to buy other items on OPSkins (from any game).

So how do you use Instant Sell on OPSkins?

  1. Visit the Instant Sell Page
  2. Select the items from your inventory that you wish to Instant Sell
  3. Then choose your earnings preference – OPSkins Wallet Funds or OP

It’s that simple. So if you have any CS:GO, PUBG or H1Z1:KotK items you are looking to sell quickly, head on over to the Instant Sell Page now.

The Hottest New Shirt In PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS!

With the limited amount of skins available in PUBG, any new item that’s added to the game quickly becomes sought-after by the top players and traders. Most recently, this has been the case with the shirt called the DMM T-Shirt.

The PUBG DMM T-Shirt was originally released as a promotion for a PUBG event held in Japan by DMM, a Japanese entertainment site. Following the event, PUBG DMM began giving away codes for the shirt to anyone who purchased PUBG through the DMM store. The limited method of obtaining the shirt, combined with its inability to be traded, made this shirt one of the most sought-after PUBG items during the last week.

Once this was learned by the community, sites such as Skin Tracker quickly began posting guides for users on how to pick up the shirt through the DMM Store. This led to many players flocking to buy the game so they could get access to this extremely rare shirt. However, as the news broke and more players flocked to DMM to pick up the shirt, DMM quickly suspended automatic distribution of the code to players who purchase the game. This shut down access to the shirt and increased the rarity of the item.

While the item is not currently tradable in the game, many are speculating that the item might become tradable after a short period of time like the Twitch Prime set did after its original release into the game. If the item does become tradable, due to the limited means of currently acquiring the shirt, the prices are sure to quickly rise on the market.

As of now, the only way to secure the PUBG DMM T-Shirt is through traders willing to sell the codes they managed to stock up on during the promotion, and no one knows if it will ever become more accessible.  These factors have led the DMM T-Shirt for PUBG to be now one of the most highly coveted items in the game.

As always, the team at OPSkins is closely monitoring this new PUBG DMM T-Shirt and will let the community know if the shirt becomes tradable. Until then what are your thoughts on the newest item added to PUBG? Do you love it, do you hate it, have you picked one up? Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
