    Jackpot Arena FAQ

    An invitation layer will appear 48 hours before the Jackpot Arena begins. Players can enter their information in this layer to register for the battle. Registration for the Jackpot Arena closes at 1:55 pm.* There is no inherent right to participate in the Jackpot Arena.

    Match Procedure

    1. Starting at 2:00 pm* all online users scheduled for the first round will be pulled to the Arena maps where they will fight their first round in a 1 vs. 1 fight. Players are required to be online at least 5 minutes before the tournament starts to be able to participate.

    2. Once both players are on the Jackpot Arena map, a countdown will start to let the players know when the Non Attack Zone has been lifted and the fight has begun.

    3. If a player fails to be online by the time the pulling phase ends and the match starts, it is counted as a forfeit and the other player moves to the next round without having to fight. If neither player makes it to the map for a scheduled match at least 20 seconds before the end of the pulling phase, then the countdown starts and it is counted as a general forfeit — both players are disqualified as no-shows.
    4. In the event there an uneven number of players are available for matching, the last player will get a Free Pass to the next block without having to fight an enemy.
    5. Each match has a maximum duration of 5 minutes. If no winner has been declared after 4 minutes, the radiation zone closes in and decreases the map size in order to force a decision. In the case that both players survive the 5 minute mark the player with the most HP left is declared the winner.

    6. Players who get destroyed in a Jackpot Arena match are out of the arena event. After each match both players will be warped back to their home base on X-1.

    7. The overall number of rounds to be fought will be determined by the number of players participating in the Jackpot Arena.

    8. The Jackpot Arena is over when there is only 1 player left who has won the last match.

    Important rules and limitations

    * Players destroyed in the Jackpot Arena will not have their drones damaged and do not have to pay for their repair.

    * Regardless of whether they won or lost, when a player leaves or enters the Jackpot Arena map their HP and Shield will fully be restored on both configurations.

    * Participants must be at least 18 years of age.

    * Italy, Brazil and some states in the US are excluded from the Jackpot Arena

    * As with the old system users on stage1 of the new bot detection will not be eligible to win prices in the JPA. (They may sign up and participate for the fun of it but each user will be rechecked before any pay-outs occur.)

    * Item Blacklist:

    o Cloak CPUs (All Types)

    o Jump CPUs (All Types)

    o Ship Warp

    * Nano Hull

    o Nano Hull may be taken to the battle but the player cannot refill it during a fight

    o When the Players uses his Galaxy Gate materializer in a Jackpot Arena fight he will get everything credited except the Nano hull. When the fight is over he will receive the Nano hull that he should have gained through use of the materializer while in the arena.
