Rumble Kong League Details Boost Mechanics, More
Staff Writer

Rumble Kong League detailed more of its gameplay mechanics in an update of its RKL Playbook Tuesday.

The project ran through three variables that can change how each Kong plays in each game: boosts, stamina, and player position.


Each Kong will have four boosts: defense, finish, shooting, and vision. Each boost will improve the probability that a Kong will be successful in a single action.

"Although incredibly important, very few actions in the game will be 100 percent determined by the boost level. There will always be an element of skill and luck involved in every game," the project said.


Stamina, which will refill over time and with consumables, will affect a Kong's performance and will need to be managed by holders.

Player positions

Each Kong will have an ideal position based on its boosts:

  • Center – Primary: Vision, Secondary: Shooting and Finish.
  • Power Forward – Primary: Finish, Secondary: Vision
  • Shooting Guard – Primary: Defense, Secondary: Shooting.

Rumble Kong League Rookies Revealed
Staff Writer

Rumble Kong League Rookies, a free claim for Rumble Kong League holders, has revealed in Lucky Trader's Asset Explorer.

The pre-reveal floor price for the collection was 0.135 ETH as of 11:55 a.m. ET. 

Before the reveal, project leaders announced a few key details:

  • All Rookie mints will be randomly generated, meaning a holder of a rare Rumble Kong is not guaranteed a rare Rookie
  • In total, there will be 250 "very rare" Rookies
  • Rookies will be playable in the project's upcoming game
  • Rookies will not receive Boosts right away, but will have the ability to unlock Boosts "further down the line once they start playing games." 
  • Kongs will always "receive the highest benefits" as the project's genesis collection. Kongs will be the only group that can play on one of the 300 Clubs and compete in the highest tier of the Rumble Kong League

The claim period is set to end Sept. 8 at noon ET. After the claim ends, the remaining Rookies will be sold by a public mint. Holders can claim their Rookies on the Rumble Kong League website. Reveals for the newly claimed Rookies will take place every Monday.
