Regional Status NFTs, How a Chieftain Grows & Elevates Their Tribe to the Top of the Banana Kingdom

Regional Status NFTs Overview and Recap of the Unknown

As we mentioned in the last section, there are 5 classes of tribes in the Banana Kingdom: The Unknown, The Settled, The Elite, The Kong's, and the Apex's. These 5 classes are known as "Regional Status" classes. For your tribe to enter into one of the upper 4 regional status classes, you have to lead your tribe into battle for the NFT, or buy it on the open market. Chieftains and their tribe members who attain a higher status class for their tribe will reap the benefits of higher earnings in many ways.
The majority of the games Tribal Chieftains won't belong to any status class. It's unknown where they may venture to, what lands they may conquer, and what class they belong to. All chiefs begin the game as a great big Unknown — but with the potential to rise through the classes, and ultimately rule the Kingdom.
In short, being an Unknown chief leading an unknown tribe just means that your status class is unknown. Your tribe is capped at 10 members with the exception of the 12 tribes that win their regional Tournaments and enter the Tournament of the Apex's for a shot at the throne, and Kingdom's largest prize pool. You also earn 2% of all tokens your tribe spends on crafting and your Oracles earn 1%.

Complex Math

There are 4 classes in the Kingdom and then there are 4 types of Regional Status class NFTs and they're based on the 4 regions: Bananatopia, Neverian Peaks, Kong Steppe and Apex City. A Chieftain must hold the Regional Status NFT for it to be activated in-game. Chieftains in each region must also hold that regions corresponding class NFT in order to utilize it in the game. Ex. An Apexian Chief, needs an Apexian Status NFT.
With the complex math out of the way, lets get into the status classes, starting with the Settled Status class.
Additional benefits of belonging to one of the four status classes is shown in the Monthly Tournaments & Additional Earnings by Class sections on each Tribal Rank page.
