Now, you know I can’t start talking about Battlerite betting, as you can’t bet on it today. I just wanted to discuss the fact that the game is soon launched for real and the question remains – to bet, or not to bet on Battlerite.
Why will battlerite betting be interesting?
The game developers had one thing in mind when they created Battlerite. And that was that luck shouldn’t determine the outcome of the game. For instance, the game has NO random number generator. This means that all attacks will always do the same damage, no crits etc. As close to 100% skill-based as possible.
Of course, a lot of other factors can be defined as “luck”.
Is this even good for betting? I am not 100% sure. For a huge game, it is probably not good at all – because bookies would always be able to price their markets accurately and you might not see upsets as often. But as I said, upsets can happen because of several other reasons than just in-game luck.
I think this format is actually good for betting. I am eager to see if we can beat the bookmakers early on when the game is released for realz. It will be easier for us to follow the Battlerite scene than some bookmaker that forces in the game into their product portfolio!
So Battlerite is a team arena brawler action game. The game is played both 2v2 and 3v3 competitively during the games beta phase. It will be interesting if you will see the pro scene being played in both formats or just one.
The players choose a character that are either melee, ranged, support or tank. And the two teams battle out on a pre-made battle arena.
I will update this article as soon as it is possible to bet on Battlerite. What we need to know is which bookmakers will offer the game first. From experience, EGB will be first – but Betspawn and Bet365 will follow closely behind.
