Genes, Stats & Rarity
A CAThlete is an NFT in-game character that takes part in competitions, can be upgraded and crossbred. The word comes from ‘cat’ + ‘athlete’, hinting on both their appearance and running skills. Each CAThlete is generated with a unique set of genes that determine their appearance, stats, and rarity. The values of the stats significantly affect the chance to win in a particular running discipline.
There are 6 genes (body parts) that each CAThlete has:
Each gene is attributed with stats points and has its rarity, which determines the max potential stats of a CAThlete and its rarity. There are 5 rarity categories of CAThletes, genes and NFT items:
A CAThlete’s rarity is defined by the highest rarity of its genes.
Rarity affects the energy pool of a CAThlete: rare, epic and legend CAThletes have more energy points than common and uncommon once.
Rarity also affects Energy cooldown time: the higher the rarity of a CAThlete is, the less time it will take to restore 1 energy:
🤍Common - 2 hours;
💚Uncommon - 1 hour 45 minutes;
💙Rare - 1 hour 30 minutes;
💜Epic - 1 hour 15 minutes;
🧡Legendary - 1 hour.
There are three main characteristics or stats that each CAThlete has: strength, speed and stamina. Its set of genes is random and unique, and there are genetically predetermined maximums on stamina, strength and speed.
The stats of a CAThlete grow with each level-up by 10% of their potential maximums. Moreover, items from the Marketplace also boost stats. So there is always room for improvement!
