4 min readOct 31, 2021

RomanPunk Fighting NFTs are back and more belligerent than ever!

RomanPunk gladiators are back and ready to rumble! Join us on Twitch TV for LIVE battles and NFT giveaways!

Tournament History

The inaugural Summer of Gladiators tournament was held in the RomanPunks Discord from June to August, 2021. Owners of RomanPunk NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain engaged in weekly dice battles in an elimination challenge to decide the winner of the epic Cyclops NFT.

The grand prize winner of the Summer of Gladiators tournament was awarded the one and only CYCLOPS NFT

Since completing the Summer of Gladiators tournament, the RomanPunk empire has expanded onto the WAX blockchain, and a new breed of fighters are now hungry for more blood!

Join Emperor Punktavian and his team of Prefects on Twitch for a new style of gladiatorial battles that allow for more fights, more interactivity and more prizes!

Introducing the Live Gladiatorial Games!

How to Enter

There is more than one way to enter the Live Gladiatorial Games. Owners of both ETH and WAX NFTs are qualified to take part.

  • Own a RomanPunk ETH NFT with one of the following types: ‘centurion’, ‘soldier’, or ‘gladiator’.
  • Own a RomanPunk WAX NFT that is included in the ‘fighter’ schema.

The ETH RomanPunks are entered by default and require no action on the part of the owner.

WAX NFTs on the other hand, must be ‘played’ in the Twitch chat. Holders of the WAX NFT will have a small window of time when called upon, to share the Atomic Hub URL that proves their ownership of one of the two fighters on deck.

Match Schedule

Fights will be scheduled frequently — at least once a week, but up to 5 times per week — follow us on Twitch and Discord for announcements.

Fighter Selection

For each match, fighters will be selected at random using a picker wheel.

Battle System

Battles are conducted with a simple dice roll in order to allow for quick decisions and multiple matches.

A basic dice roll is used to calculate the winners. The number of dice each fighter gets is determined by their ATK rating.

Fighter stats are detailed on this spreadsheet as well as on the WAX NFT immutable attributes:

Initially, only the attack stats will be used; however, as the battle system evolves and becomes more automated, defense and speed will be incorporated

A fighter is given a 6-sided dice for each attack point they possess.

(defense and speed points are reserved for future battle formats)

Awards and Prizes

WAX players are awarded prizes for winning each match, each day and each tournament:

  • Various RomanPunk WAX NFTs are awarded to the winner of each match.
  • Legendary RomanPunk WAX NFTs are awarded to the winners of each day.
  • Ethereum RomanPunk NFTs and Mythical RomanPunk WAX NFTs are awarded to the winners of each tournament.

ETH NFT holders are awarded prizes at the end of each tournament

  • Ethereum RomanPunk NFTs are awarded to the TOP 3 winners at the end of each tournament
Mythical NFT WAX cards will be awarded to tournament winners

Tournament Seasons

Each season will last 8 weeks, during which time all the victories will be tallied for both WAX and ETH players.

At the end of the tournament, separate prizes will be awarded to both the top 10 WAX players and the top 3 ETH NFTs with the most accumulated victories.

Fighter stats will be tallied on a spreadsheet which can be viewed here:
