    Marketplace not working


    We have become aware of the marketplace not showing Axies, trade volumes or accounts.


    The engineering team has become aware of this and is looking into it, I’ll edit this post once the issue is resolved.


    Edit: this is now solved.

    Bans Linked To End of Season Reviews


    As previously announced, we held back AXS rewards from 67 accounts involved in ToS violations on the leaderboards. In addition, we issued 56 bans. While there is some overlap with the accounts that lost their AXS rewards, the bans were not limited to wallets on the leaderboard.


    Among the banned wallets there were:

    one case of win trading (two people involved)

    29 cases of qualifying for multiple leaderboard rewards with the same Axie(s)

    25 cases of people repeatedly abusing the 2nd turn bug


    Our ToS states, “Using the same Axies across multiple accounts to qualify for multiple leaderboard rewards is strictly prohibited.” Please note that to violate this ToS rule, only Axies that have been traded were considered. No bans were given to Axies that were sold or bought on the marketplace.


    During our investigation, it became clear that this is the most misunderstood part of our ToS. While we agree that we should strive to communicate our rules better, we expect everyone who wants to participate in our competitive scene also to make an effort to obtain that information. Considering it’s the first time we have conducted a ban for this infraction, these accounts have received a 30-day ban.


    For people who abused the 2nd turn bug, a warning was issued on the 12th of July stating that abusing this exploit is against our ToS. We made a distinction between those who chose to do so before this warning (loss of AXS rewards) and those who kept doing it afterward (loss of AXS rewards and a 90-day ban). In deciding on these bans, we have looked specifically at repeat offenders who we believe had a significant impact on the system. This means that we have not taken action on people who were not reported prior to our evaluation and those who just did it a few times but still didn’t offset their overall turn ratio. I want to point out that the various trackers we’ve seen online that supposedly track the percent of 2nd turn games have been wildly incorrect, and the data we have used is directly from our database.


    We know that some are frustrated with people who get away with cheating. We will be looking to create a way for people to easily submit reports of suspicious activity in the near future and allocate more resources to follow up on these reports during the season rather than mostly after it has concluded.


    Finally, we know that some players who did not receive their AXS rewards are not on our list of disqualified wallets. Please let us know if you are still missing your rewards but did not participate in any of the activities mentioned in this post.

    Safety practices: Signatures


    The new marketplace contract has introduced more simple signatures to Authorize Axie sales without paying subsequent fees each time, effectively increasing the effectiveness and ease of putting up assets for sale.


    However, a lot of users might feel too comfortable just signing any wallet prompts in any website, we want to remind everyone that this is specially dangerous if you were to sign a malicious wallet pop up from a scammer/phishing website. Please ensure to sign anything outside our official websites at your own risk, specially if your Ronin wallet and Metamask private keys are the same.


    If you see anything suspicious or feel doubts before signing any wallet prompts, please be sure to reach out to any channel mods here in the server or directly to the support team in https://support.axieinfinity.com/


    Always beware of any sudden friend request, DM’s with links and lucrative propositions in messages.

    Additional Ban Information


    We have heard from the community that there are concerns about the most recent ban wave. We take every Axie ban seriously and spend countless hours reviewing the data before implementing a ban.


    It is atypical to provide the ban data as it violates two principles of ours: player privacy and eSport integrity. In some cases, providing the data would reveal the methods we use to detect cheating and allow them to be bypassed next season. In this specific ban wave, we will share a limited data set below as we believe this will not violate the above principles.


    Second Turn Bug Abuse

    In the second turn bug violation, we looked for the accounts that blatantly and repeatably abused the bug, which resulted in a significant change on the leaderboard. We are aware of reports that some abusers were not punished. To receive punishment for this abuse, an account needed to fall into one of the datasets below:


    Your account needed to have more than 20 consecutive battles starting with the second turn (The probability of this without the bug is 0.000095%).


    Your account started the second turn in 15 consecutive battles, and in 55% of your total matches, your account started the second turn (The probability of this without the bug is 0.003%)


    Your account had more than five streaks of starting the second turn seven times in a row. (The probability of this without the bug is 0.000029%)


    TOS Reference:

    Section 4 of our TOS:

    “Engage in any practice that aims to manipulate the outcome of any Axie match, whether in the arena or tournaments. All players should play to the best of their abilities and any sort of match-fixing, win-trading, or colluding between competitors is strictly prohibited.”


    “Trick, defraud, or mislead us and other users, especially in any attempt to learn sensitive account information such as user passwords.”


    “Make any unauthorized use of the Site, the App and the Smart Contracts…”


    Axie Juggling

    We looked at matches played by top players and others receiving rewards on the leaderboard and the Axies they used. We were looking for players that climbed to a position, made a transfer of a team of Axies to another account, and then that account climbed the leaderboard with the same team of Axies. We will provide two anonymized examples below. In the image below, we tracked both accounts. Looking at a continuous block of 100 battles, account one (top row) used Axie #1, Axie #2, and Axie #3 92 times. Then made a transfer to account two (bottom row), whose next 100 battles (and their final 100 battles for the season) used the same 3 Axies 89 times.


    Example Two:

    Show a similar pattern to example one, 100 battles then a team transferred and used.


    These bans were not for one person sending an axie to another account or trying out an axie. These bans were for both accounts playing many matches with the exact same team, thus using the same Axies to qualify for multiple leaderboard rewards.


    TOS reference:

    Section four of our TOS:

    “Using the same Axies across multiple accounts to qualify for multiple leaderboard rewards is strictly prohibited.”


    Communication about the new rule:

    We communicated the update to our TOS on all of our Discord servers on Feb 16th and our main Twitter account on Feb 14th.


    The Community Protection Team

    The Community Protection Team is under my purview and is kept separate from other teams in the company. This is an intentional decision made to keep them impartial. They are unfamiliar with specific guilds or player names. They review the TOS and then use a variety of data sets, community reports, and replays to find violations.


    The regional leads are not involved in this decision and have no knowledge of ongoing investigations. They and most others in the company are unaware of the bans until they are announced, again an intentional decision to keep the process impartial and without influence. Furthermore, the regional leads are not a part of the appeals decision.

    Origin SLP Clarifications


    With the launch of Origin Season 0 today, please be guided by this excerpt from the announcement.


    “However, no SLP will be allowed to be minted during Season 0 (30 days) as we monitor the system. If any bugs, abuse, or exploits are found in SLP emissions, players may have SLP taken away before it can be minted”


    Some clarifications:

    – SLP will be rewarded in Origin Season 0 and you can use them to craft runes and charms. Only the withdrawal (or minting) of SLP through the Origin Portal will be disabled. If you need more SLP for crafting, you can deposit (or burn) SLP through the Origin Portal.

    – SLP rewards in Axie Classic will be disabled at August 12, 2022 10:30 AM. If you have unclaimed SLP in Classic, you will still be able to claim them through Claim Tokens on the Marketplace as usual.

    KrisVirgo HF-06 |HF

    Origin Season 0 Known Issues


    Visual Bugs

    • Runes and Charms still show in-game after they were withdrawn/minted. This is just a visual bug, the Runes and Charms would disappear after the game is relaunched.

    • Getting random Moondust and more than one Runes/Charms from every time you craft. This is just a visual bug. This is caused by Crafting level up rewards showing with the crafting result.

    • Crafting sometimes only results in getting EXP with no Runes/Charms. This is just a visual bug. The charm or rune you rolled will show up in your game inventory.

    • Teams containing Axies that were sold/transferred would sometimes show up as “banned”, this is just a visual bug and the Axies aren’t actually banned.



    • Login on one device at a time to make sure the client always has the latest data.

    • Restart the game after depositing or withdrawing so that the game gets the updated data.

    • Be careful when depositing SLP to the game. You will not be able to claim them back until the end of Season 0.

    • Season Alpha Runes/Charms are currently not displayed under “All” on the Disenchantment screen. You need to select “Alpha” on the drop-down menu to see and select Season Alpha Runes/Charms for disenchantment.

    Origin Season 0 is here! This marks the transition into Phase 3.


    SLP rewards have been added to Origin’s ranked gameplay mode and completely removed from Classic (v2).


    NFT Runes & Charms are here! These require SLP & Moon Shards to craft and can be minted onto Ronin through the Marketplace.


    We’ve also adjusted Leaderboard rewards, tweaked the crafting/disenchanting systems, made balancing changes, & more!


    As we continue to improve the game and work towards a Season 1 launch, all rewards, crafting costs, card balancing, and other components of the game are subject to significant tuning and changes during Season 0.

    KrisVirgo HF-06 |HF

    Origin Season 0 is here! Season 0 lasts for 30 days and marks the transition of Origin into Phase 3. This is a huge step forward for our digital nation as there are a variety of important updates.

    KrisVirgo HF-06 |HF



    SLP will be rewarded for players winning that are Ranked Boar or higher. By rewarding players more at higher Ranks who will need to use SLP to craft, it will create a more balanced economy where SLP rewards also need to be spent to further progress in the game. The amount of SLP rewarded at each Rank will also depend on how many NFT Axies the player is using. If a player is using only Starter Axies then they will not be able to be rewarded SLP.

    Season 0: Smooth Love Potion (SLP)

    As planned, we will be moving SLP over from Axie Infinity Classic (V2) to Axie Infinity Origin (V3) as part of Phase 3. This means that SLP emission will be completely turned off from V2 on August 12th at 9:30 AM GMT +7.


    One major benefit of transitioning to Origin from Classic is expanded abilities to balance the SLP economy. Thus, the design of the SLP rewards system with Origin is being tuned in a way to align with that goal.


    Similar to Classic, SLP will continue to only be distributed in PvP Ranked mode when players win battles, and the higher Rank that one is competing in, the more SLP rewards they will receive per win.


    However, of course a major difference in Origin will be that SLP is required to craft various Charms and Runes.


    The new mint system will be reduced from 14 days to 7 days for SLP.


    However, no SLP will be allowed to be minted during Season 0 (30 days) as we monitor the system. If any bugs, abuse, or exploits are found in SLP emissions, players may have SLP taken away before it can be minted.
