BUY one-of-one PLAYERS.
We call our basketball playing robots, Swoopsters. Each Swoopster is a one-of-one, all of which are owned by members of our community. Once you own a Swoopster, it is 100% yours to do with as you choose. This is where your front office skills come in. Play them, trade them, or sell them to a competitor to put real money into your pocket.
Swoopsters will either be a guard, forward, center, or a combination of two positions (e.g. G/F or F/C). A Swoopster with such multi-positional eligibility can be played at either position, enhancing its value.
As its owner, you have the right to name your player. It is a single-instance, irreversible action, meaning that once completed, the name will stay with the player even through transferred ownership.
A player’s season number represents the season that player is currently in. Rookies enter in season one.
Similar to real-world college sports recruiting ratings, Swoopsters are rated from one to five stars — with five being the strongest rating.
For every year of experience, one additional skill will reveal. A 5-season veteran, for example, will have 5 skills revealed, and a 7-season veteran will have 7 skills revealed.
A player's top-3 highest rated skill scores are colored gold on your player card, and accompanied by a trophy icon.
The DNA of a Swoopster includes 15 skill ratings that help determine performance on the court.
Rookie Swoopsters start with one revealed skill scores. Every season a new skill score is revealed. Skill score with '??' signify an attribute that has yet to be revealed.
COMPETE TO win.
Every SWOOPS season comes down to the Swooper Bowl, a 64-team tournament, pitting the most successful Swoops franchises from the regular season against each other for the chance to take home the crown and pocket some cash.
You wouldn’t be a real team owner without the ability to turn a profit. Within the SWOOPS universe owners have a multitude of ways to generate revenue.
Weekly cash prize tournaments drop throughout the regular season, culminating with our end-of-season Swooper Bowl. The better your team, the more money you can pocket.
Each day, paid games can be found in the Swoops game lobby. Teams submit a cash ante to enter the contest, with the winner taking home the pot.
When you’re ready to move on from a player that just doesn’t fit your playing style, head over to our preferred secondary marketplace partner, OpenSea. There you will be able to list your player for sale in hopes of finding a buyer.
There are four seasons per 12-month calendar year, with each season spanning 13 weeks. Those 13 weeks are broken into a preseason, a regular season, a post-season, and an off-season.
