DFK Fight Klub is an interactive turn-based game where players choose three heroes for battle. If you’ve enjoyed crafting the perfect team in Pokémon, constructing a MTG deck, or the feeling of staying one step ahead of your opponent in chess/poker then you’ll love Fight Klub! It’s designed with a competitive mindset and aims to let players use their heroes in creative ways, encouraging players to experiment with different hero combinations. Most importantly, the game is designed to reward skill and player choice. This game is currently in an alpha state and is fully playable in discord.
Fight Klub has had community support from podcasts already:

DFK Fight Klub utilizes the hero NFTs. The hero’s stats, elements, main class, and subclass create a unique combination to generate in game attributes. A brief description in figure 1 and 2.

Heroes also use in games skills determined by their primary and secondary class. The primary class has access to both skills and the subclass has access to one of the skills. These skills are outlined in figure 3.

The user interface of the game is currently through discord. Players can enter their 0x wallet then deposit a small amount of gold to act as verification for a wallet. Once registered, players can select a team of 3 heroes from their wallet and battle.
DFK Fight Klub has several overarching objectives:
Provide a low barrier of entry. Fight Klub is played with DFK heroes. The Discord interface has many advantages such as no transaction fees. The game will always feature an available version of a zero stakes game that does not require tokens or ongoing transactions.
Reward players based on skill. While hero stats create a baseline of the team’s strength and weaknesses, Fight Klub is designed for player choice and is constructed so skill ultimately decides the outcome of the battle. This game has been developed to leverage player choice and maximize strategic gameplay decisions.
Leverage DFK Hero NFTs. Hero NFT’s are undoubtably the core of DFK. Having a functional strategic outlet for hero NFTs has provided an incredible level of satisfaction for our growing community. These heroes have become more than a financial investment. We want to compliment the current constructs of the game by providing a strategic outlet for existing heroes.
Encourage a different way to choose summoning partners. Currently, the most common way to summon is to try for advanced classes/traits, or to make “positive Expected Sales Value” summons (see DFK Solver), where players are summoning purely to flip for a profit. While there is nothing inherently wrong with this, We believe that by providing an entirely new perspective on why a player would want to summon makes it so other characteristic distributions can be desirable.
Increase utility of DFK tokens by introducing different stakes. Part of what makes a game fun is when “stakes” are involved. One upcoming feature is “wagering”, where before the battle, both players will send some DFK Tokens (dfk gold, jewel, or crystal) to an escrow wallet or contract. Then, once a winner has been declared, the winnings are sent to the winning player.
We currently do not have a fee structure in place and the game is free to play as long as a user has access to 3 heroes. In order for this game to become fully sustainable we plan to incorporate transaction fees. Without having an opportunity to discuss with the DFK team, we are proposing these transaction fees on top of the existing raffle ticket structure. Our desire would be for the ability to implement a raffle system proportional to what exists now. We believe in a low barrier to entry methodology and propose to implement a 4% fee to support the existing and ongoing development.
In addition to the raffle ticket system we plan to incorporate a future wager system that could be leveraged for ranked or tournament play.
Fight Klub uses DFK heroes to determine what actions/options are available to a player but will not manipulate the NFT properties in any way, and will always be free to play! While players currently can battle each other with a wager (there is an escrow functionality in the discord bot), when the raffle ticket system is implemented, raffle tickets would be distributed among participating players.
