Moonduck TV has come up with another innovative tournament series – Midas Mode.
Although the rules of the tournament have not yet been completely worked out, the idea includes a market system using MoonBucks that are distributed to each team.
MoonBucks can be used to draft or ban heroes and even pause the game.
When a team runs out of their money, a ‘hard mode’ will be enabled – allowing only the ‘worst heroes’ to be selected and no bans or pauses will be permitted.
A Bounty System will be put into place for teams to earn money back through community challenges – such as playing a game with Techies, killing Roshan but leaving the Aegis, and selecting only flying heroes.
The price is expected to fluctuate from game to game creating a market system based on supply and demand as well as finding a balanced economy.
The event will take place some time after the Kiev Major with more details to follow.
The concept and realization of moonduck.TV was initiated by Shannon “SUNSfan” Scotten. SUNSfan is the Co-owner and founder of DotaCinema, and most recently founder of Digital Chaos, the new organization supporting Kurtis “Aui_2000” Ling’s new team.
Although moonduck.TV is a separate venture than DotaCinema, it will be hosting and casting the organization’s XMG Captain’s Draft Invitationals, in addition to hosting their own.
According to moonduck.TV, the studio is aiming to provide unique and innovative content and services. They intend to capitalize on the unique personalities and experiences of their staff to create their own signature style. Eventually, they hope to expand in both talent acquisition and genre of games covered.
Moonduck Studios, in partnership with Twitch TV, has announced a new fun and offbeat tournament – Elimination Mode. The event is played in an alternative game mode, in which heroes can only be banned or picked once per series.
Due to high success and popularity, the studio continues to seek out alternative tournament modes and gimmicks to keep fans and players pleased.
