IGGalaxy is a social competitive gaming platform with guaranteed gamer rewards. Hosting hundreds of tournaments per month across more than fifteen game titles, IGGalaxy is where players, teams, organisers, brands and observers from all over the world come together to share their passion for competitive gaming.
Intergalactic Gold ($IGG) is our very own cryptocurrency, and the currency of gamer rewards. All gamers receive $IGG at the end of a tournament but, if you place in the top three, you’ll earn greater rewards - such is the nature of the game!
Why are rewards in crypto?
By rewarding our community in $IGG versus fiat currencies (such as euros or dollars), we can:
What’s more is that, as an international gamer in the IGGalaxy ecosystem, you will never lose $IGG due to transactional fees or currency conversion. Instead, everyone is guaranteed a fair and equal share of rewards.
We believe that gaming should never discriminate. Instead, gaming should unite us.
Do you offer other rewards?
Certain tournaments may also offer other crypto prizes, including MATIC and NFTs. Keep an eye out for places in these tournaments - they’re in high demand 🖖
Tournaments are hosted by the official IGGalaxy team or by community organisers; community tournaments may be open to the public or password-protected, depending on the organiser’s preferences.
To join and participate in a tournament, create an IGGalaxy account using our web or mobile app then:
1. Complete your gaming profile
You will need to register a gaming username for the game title that you’re trying to join. We need your username(s) so that other users can find you, in-game, when competing in tournaments!
You also need to have an in-app Wallet set up, so we know where to send your rewards. Do this from the navigation bar.
Add a gaming username by going to your User Settings > Edit Profile
2. Browse and join a tournament
Check out our tournaments in your in-app dashboard, and join a tournament that catches your eye!
Hint: Before your tournament begins, make sure to read the rulebook for specific information about your tournament!
Filter and search through our upcoming tournaments to find a game that meets your needs.
3. Get ready to battle
Once you’ve joined a tournament, make sure you set time aside to participate! You will be reminded of your tournament 15 minutes before it starts via email, in-app and/or push notification (depending on your preferences).
How do I see the tournaments I’ve joined?
The Launch Pad is your one-stop-shop for all information regarding your tournaments. Here, you can view upcoming tournaments that you have joined, browse historical tournaments you have participated in, and check your reward history to date.
Access the Launch Pad, shown above, from your navigation bar.
What is the ‘ready up’ process?
You must ready up at the start of every round: doing so tells your opponent that you are present and ready to game. When playing as part of a squad, all members in the squad must have individually readied up for the tournament.
Players can ready up in the Lobby page of their tournament. If you or a squad member do not ready up within the first 10 minutes of a round starting, you/your squad will be disqualified, and your opponent will automatically proceed to the next stage of the tournament.
How do I play against my opponent?
When you and your opponent have both readied up, the host of the round should find their opponent within their console, using their opponent’s gaming username. If you are the captain of a squad tournament, you only need to search for the username of your rival captain.
Find your opponent’s gaming details in the Lobby team, after you ready up. Here, you can also see the assigned host of the round.
4. Let us know the results
Once a round has finished, let us know the result in the Lobby tab. Please be honest when reporting your result, even if you lose - everyone receives $IGG for participating, anyway!
Top tip: upload evidence, at the same you submit your scores, to help our moderators quickly address disputes.
5. Play. Earn. Repeat.
The more you play, the more you grow, and the more you earn - simple!
Please note that to access your crypto rewards, and to play more than three tournaments, we’ll ask you to verify your identity. ID verification helps to reduce instances of identity fraud on the platform and ensures that IGGalaxy remains a safe and enjoyable place to be.
