The Arena minigame allows viewers to compete against each other for the chance to take the glory of the emperor and collect the bounty of the currency collected upon entry.
“Death smiles at us all. All we can do is smile back.” - Gladiator
The arena comes in two flavours: The Knockout arena and the tournament arena. Both of these can be started simultaniously to give viewers multiple ways to earn more currency and to increase chat engagement. Both of these can be started either via the UI or via chat.
In this mode, viewers can wager points to fight against other viewers. If they win, they walk away with their opponents' wagers (capped at their own max wager). For example, Viewer A entered 100 points and Viewer B entered 50 points. If Viewer A wins, they walk away with 150 points. However, if Viewer B wins, they walk away with only 100 points and 50 points are refunded to Viewer A.
This is the command that viewers will use to join the knockout arena.
!startarena 1 <max points>
This command will start the knockout arena. Set max points to be the maximum you want viewers to be able to bet on winning the arena.
In this mode, viewers can enter the tournament at a fixed entry cost and fight against all participants competing for a podium finish. The top three fighters (using a single Knockout elimination bracket) will walk away with the pot of entry fees. The winning payoffs are 60% for 1st place, 25% for 2nd place, and 15% for 3rd place.
