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.
