1. Basic combat mechanics
Axie Infinity is a strategy game where players will use their team’s functional cards to attack the opponent. Here are some basic features of the mechanics as well as how to start playing Axie Infinity so that it is easier for you to imagine:
The game will include many rounds, in each round the Axies will be arranged in a different order of attacks depending on that Axie’s speed index.
Each round the player will be granted 2 more energy corresponding to 2 cards used to attack the opponent. These mana can be stacked if you didn’t use all of them in the previous round.
Each function card will have a different damage and armor ratio, you will rely on the opponent’s health and combine the appropriate cards to be able to destroy the opponent’s Axie.
When you have finished choosing the right cards, you press “End turn” to start your turn with your opponent
The match will end when you defeat all 3 of your team’s Axies (or vice versa).
2. Advanced mechanics
To increase the chances of winning, players need to calculate the attribute indicators to have a suitable squad arrangement strategy. See the table below for an overview of the buffs and debuffs that can affect Axie in battle.
Buff: Increases the stats of Axies
De-Buff: Creates attributes that are beneficial to ally Axies and detrimental to the enemy team
In addition, here is an overview of the math that determines the exact damage and shield Axies receive when playing cards:
2.1 How to calculate damage Axie Infinity
Factors that will affect the amount of damage dealt per attack include:
- Advantage Generation and Strategy ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’
- Combo Attack
- Axie & Card have the same attack type attribute
- attack totally
2.2 Mechanism and Strategy for “Rock, Paper, Scissors”
Each Axie has different attack and defense stats that make them capable of countering one type of Axie and being countered by other Axies. Therefore players can take advantage of this to increase their chances of winning the match
For example, about the strategy of “Rock, Paper, Scissors”
Beast-type Axies (Imp, Nutcracker, Hero) attack Plant-type Axies. The Beast card has an advantage over Plant so it adds 15% to damage per attack
Aqua-type Axies (Teal Shell, Shoal Star, Koi) attack Plant-type. Aqua-type attacks take 15% less damage because Plant-type counters Aqua
The Bird-type Axie (Kestrel, Little Owl, Pigeon Post) attacks the Aqua-type. Bird and Aqua type Axies are neutral so the attack will deal base damage
2.3 How to Combo Attack
When an Axie attacks two or more cards in a turn. These attacks deal extra damage based on that Axie’s ability. The higher the skill, the more damage stacks.
Combo damage calculation: (attack * skill) / 500
An Axie with 35 combo skills with Hare (120 Damage) and Hungry Bird (110)
Damage calculation 35 * 120 = 4200/500 = 8.4 and 35 * 110 = 3850/500 = 7.7
Hare will take about 8 more damage and Hungry Bird will take about 7-8 damage.
2.4 Axie & Card with same attack type attribute
Any attack with the same attack card system in “Body Parts” will increase ATK by 10%. For example, Imp with 110 base damage will deal 121 damage.
In addition, the attack power also depends on the player luck when dealing ‘critical’ damage increases 200% of the normal damage dealt when attacking.
3. Axie Infinity’s Play To Earn Mechanism
3.1. Play games and receive Smooth Love Potions (SLP) tokens
- Fight monsters in Adventure mode (PvE)
- Fight with other players in Arena mode (PVP)
- Daily quest: Login once a day, win 5 arena battles and 10 adventure battles
It is estimated that every day a player can earn a minimum of 75 SLP with Axie Infinity:
50 SLP for adventure mode
25 SLP for daily quest
In addition, each time you win in the arena mode, the player will receive additional SLP depending on the player’s ranking level. According to current statistics, the average player earns between 100 – 200 SLP per day by playing Axie Infinity
3.2. Earn money in Axie Infinity through tournaments
About every 1 or 2 weeks, Axie will hold an Arena tournament for players to compete against each other, up to 225,000 mAXS (1,000 mAXS = 1 AXS) for the 18th season of Axie Infinity.
Each AXS token is priced at $72 at press time, the highest ranked player can receive a reward of 225,000 mAXS, or $16k. This is one of the main activities that encourage players to improve the quality of their Axies squad.
3.3. Earn money by breeding Axies
Another very interesting main feature of the game is that the player can breed Axies to spawn a new one. The newborn Axie will have a whole new set of stats, body parts, and abilities (or cards). And for each body part, Axie possesses 3 genes, which makes each Axie offspring unique.
With luck, the breeder can get a powerful Axie with a balanced set of stats. This is what makes breeding Axies so appealing.
To breed Axies, the player will need to spend 2 AXS and SLP. The higher the number of breeding, the more SLP is required. This is the main factor that makes SLP so important.
Players can use the new Axie in the following ways:
Use it to fight with your team
Use it to breed new and make more Axies
Use it for a scholarship program – Axie Infinity Scholarship
Sell it on the exchange
3.4. Earn with Axie Infinity (Scholarship) Scholarship
In Axie Infinity, each player only uses a team with 3 Axies to fight. Axie Infinity Scholarship – The Axie Infinity Scholarship is the system to implement for a situation where a player has a lot of Axies
When you have a lot of Axies, you can give them to others and let them play with your team so they can earn income through playing games and get you SLP. This is called the “Axie Infinity scholarship” and it is very popular in the Axie Infinity community.
The Axie Infinity Scholarship is a program that benefits both “lender” and “borrower”. The Axie Infinity Scholarship usually has a 50/50, 60/40 or 70/30 income split agreement.
Imagine this as passive income, like running a franchise for a business!
3.5. Make money with Axie Infinity Land
Players can invest to own lands in the world of Axie Infinity (called Lunacia Land). Lunacia Land is understood to be the “NFT digital land” aspect of Axie Infinity, a very unique feature of the game.
The world of Axie (Lunacia) will be divided into coded plots to act as home and base for the Axies. However, this feature is still new and many more are in development for it at the time of writing.
According to currently published information, players who own land can obtain AXS tokens and other potential resources on their land by participating in battles and boss fights when these features are available
Last, not least, lands in the Axie world can be freely traded in the market: players can invest in land, wait until it increases in value, and then sell it for big profits.
3.6. Earn money by investing in AXS and SLP tokens
For the game Axie Infinity, 2 tokens AXS and SLP are 2 very important tokens to use for future breeding and other features (staking & voting).
If players are too busy and do not have time to participate and learn the game, or do not have enough capital, the simplest way is to invest in 2 tokens AXS and SLP.
In theory, Axie’s expansion will increase demand for these two tokens, so if Axie Infinity grows, then AXS and SLP will likely increase in price.
4. Basic notes for newbie players
4.1 Optimization of time
Priority is given to pushing the pet to the fastest level. The higher the pet’s level, the higher the maps will open for you. On these maps, the rate of receiving SLPs will be higher than the lower ones, and the 100 SLP goal will be completed quickly. Thus, we will save a certain amount of time.
If you have passed map 21, focus on using all your energy to fight PVP to earn SLP. Then need to hit 10 times map 20 to farm 100 SLP with daily tasks.
4.2 Join the daily quest
Every day, you have a chance to get 50 SLP by doing the day quest. To check the day quest, click on “Quest”. The interface will display 3 main tasks:
Daily check in: Attendance after logging into the game every day.
Complete 10 Adventure mode levels: Players need to complete any 10 Adventure (PvE) battles.
Win 5 Arena matches: Players need to win 5 times in Arena (PvP).
4.3 Make use of skill cards
Each card has a unique effect, so it is necessary to make optimal use of these skills to be able to win the game, for example: increase attack power, restore damage, buff and debuff (like increase / decrease essence god, increase/decrease attack…), steal energy, draw cards…
