What is CyBall?#Copy URL to this article section
CyBall is a play-and-earn strategy game based on the real-life sport football. Players need to strategize around playing their CyBlocs and outmaneuver their opponents to earn and win tokens.
Players can earn CyBloc Battery Token (CBT) by winning games. CYB is CyBall’s utility token, and it is primarily used for mentoring new CyBlocs. CBT has an unlimited supply.
Another token of CyBall is the CyBall Token (CYB). CYB is the governance token of CyBall, and it is used to cast votes and to breed. You can also earn CYB by winning tournaments and ranking in the ladder once Season 1 starts.
What are CyBlocs?#Copy URL to this article section
CyBlocs are the NFT assets you need to play the game. You need a minimum of 3 CyBlocs to start playing. Every CyBloc has unique characteristics in terms of rarity, traits,skills, and leveling.
A CyBloc can be Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum or Legendary. The starting range of a CyBloc’s Skills depends on its rarity. Check the table below for their differences.
CyBloc stats of each rarity
Skills are the numerical representation of a CyBloc’s football fundamentals. The six skills in CyBall are Tackling, Passing, Dribbling, Crossing, Shooting and Physical. When a CyBloc is minted, its rarity will determine the total of the skill ratings.
Skillset of a CyBloc
For example, a Bronze CyBloc could have the following skill ratings:
Tackling - 28
Passing - 30
Dribbling - 34
Crossing - 25
Shooting - 37
Physical - 38
This skillset has a total of 192, which falls within the skill range for a Bronze CyBloc. You can check the table below for reference of this range per rarity.
Range of total skill according to Rarity of a CyBloc
Traits are the characteristics of CyBlocs that can turn the battle in your favor and/or let you earn more experience points and $CBT.
A CyBloc can have up to 3 randomly-generated traits when they are minted, but most CyBlocs only have 1 trait.
Traits also have rarity. They are classified as Common, Rare or Super Rare. Currently, there are only 50 traits in the game. Of these, 35 (70%) are Common, 10 (20%) are Rare, and only 5 (10%) are classified as Super Rare.

Example of a Super Rare Trait
Traits are not always unique. There are traits that have similar effects across the rarities, but they differ in strength. For instance, if your team’s score is lower at half-time, Not Out Yet (Common) increases all stats by 5, while Tenacious (Super Rare) increases all stats by 10.
Also, traits that influence a CyBloc’s skills during a match will add to the CyBloc’s current skill rating. For example, the common trait Street Baller adds 4 to both your CyBloc’s Dribbling Skills in a Tandem event. If a Tandem Event includes Dribbling, you’ll add a total of 8 to the combined skill rating of your CyBloc.
Minted CyBlocs start at level 1 and accumulate experience points for completing matches. For every 100 experience points a CyBloc has, it levels up and gains a skill point. This skill point can be used to level up any skill of that CyBloc by 1 point.
Note: A CyBloc that is rented or transferred to another user by any means will have its level reset back to 1.
With the basics mastered, you’re now ready to learn about how to play CyBall!
