Community News: Two stables securing their first W in the daily tournament finals
Gone are the days of hopelessly running a quarterfinal against elite C1 racehorses with your C5 Legendary Buterin that squeaked in, because class-based tourneys are here! Now, when you qualify for a tournament, you’ll run a semi-final and a final exclusively with racehorses within your own class.
To incentivise classing up your beloved racehorses, Class 1 offers the highest prize pool to chase daily, but racehorses from all six classes will have a chance to win WETH.
Head to the Guide to review the schedule.
ZED Knights + ToKnight We Ride
ToKnight We Ride & ZED Knights is back with this Friday Knights Free Tourney Blitz brought to you by ZED RUN and Knights of Degen. Shout out to @_ZombieRacing for running the leaderboards.
ZLEAD Talk AMA w/ Facundo Carril
Danshan (creator of ZLEAD and Stacked Naks Pro) was joined by Facundo Carril, Director of Product at Virtually Human Studios this week to discuss the recent core gameplay improvements, super breeds, the current racing environment, and more 👀
Listen in to get your fix of alpha right from the racehorse’s mouth.
Metaverse Cup Final
It’s official, our Metaverse Cup finalists are Argentina and France! Races start at 12am UTC, Sunday December 18. It all comes down to this - 50 custom 1v1 races and the team with the most wins, wins! Each racehorse on the winning team will receive $250 and 1,000 ZED Tokens!
Budverse Holiday Stakes
Last Saturday, December 10 over 100 ZED RUN community members were invited to the Budweiser Holiday Stakes. Budweiser opened the doors of their flagship Brewery in St Louis for a night of free beer, food, holiday lights, Clydesdale meetups, custom races, and more.
Our trusty ZED Headz braved the cold to enjoy the spoils of the venue, meet up IRL and receive some sick branded merch. Plus three winners from the final race of the night won exclusive branded Ledgers. Congrats to Bigler’s Breeding Barn, Dollar💲 & Sense Racing🏇 and AhhThinkAgain Racing.
Changes to racing fees - all entry fees for paid races now include a 10% racing fee. These are allocated and held as follows:
- A minimum of 2% will be contributed towards future prize pools.
- Up to 8% will be allocated to ZED RUN.
Hot off the press - Super Breeds
Coming soon to ZED RUN! A Super Breed is a ‘highly specialised’ racehorse, with a higher starting Level, an improved breed type, and varying extremes of distance preference and/or stability than your current trusty steed.
This week we celebrate two stables securing their first W in the daily tournament finals! With the introduction of class-based tournaments, we hope to see many more new faces in the finals over the weeks to come. Congratulations to TheAccountan7 and Hanalei Acres for taking home the gold!
