Class System - Racers

Note: The class system is currently being trialed and is subject to change based on effectiveness and feedback
The Muzzle Run class system is designed for everyone to enjoy a competitive race experience regardless if they have a champion hound or just getting started. Hounds are currently grouped in to 4 different classes and progress through the first 3 classes based on their cumulative race performances. Group 1 hounds need to qualify by placing in a group 1 trial during the month. More on Group 1 trials below. As a hound progresses through the class system, the perks and earning potential for that hound increase.

Class Points

Class points are used to determine whether a hound runs in Group 2 or 3 after their first win (if they haven't qualified for Group 1). Every un-raced hound starts with 0 class points regardless of rarity or training. Points are awarded or deducted according to the hounds performance in every race based on the following finishing places:
  1. 1.
    +10 points
  2. 2.
    +10 points
  3. 3.
    +10 points
  4. 4.
    -10 points
  5. 5.
    -10 points
  6. 6.
    -10 points
  7. 7.
    -1 point
  8. 8.
    -1 point
Note: No hound can drop below 0 class points

Class System Resets

Once Yearly Reset: Every hound will start with zero class points at the beginning of each year. This reset ensures a level playing field, giving all participants an equal chance to race to the top.
Group 1 Stays Elite: Group 1 hounds are not affected by class points and maintain their elite status until relegated. The bottom 33%, ranked by monthly Muzzle League points, will face relegation.

Maiden

The Maiden class is for all hounds seeking their first win. A hound will immediately advance to Group 3 once they win a race. Maidens currently:
  • Funnel promising hounds who have shown some early success in to Group 3
  • Can qualify for tournaments
  • Can't enter paid races

Group 4

A hound qualifies to run Group 4 races when they have won their first race, are untrained and un-boosted and have a Common rarity with a speed value not exceeding 92 and they've earned less than 1000 Matic in prize money. Class points do not determine whether a hound is in or out of Group 4, the above criteria is the only determination. Technically a hound can be eligible for Group 3 or Group 2 and still be able to run in Group 4 events. Group 4 hounds currently:
  • Can qualify for tournaments
  • Can enter paid races up to 1 Matic
  • Can enter paid Sit & Go's up to 8 Matic

Group 3

A hound qualifies to run Group 3 races when they have won their first race and do not exceed the class point threshold for Group 2*. Group 3 hounds currently:
  • Can qualify for tournaments
  • Can enter paid races up to 5 Matic
  • Can enter paid Sit & Go's up to 8 Matic

Group 2

A hound qualifies to run Group 2 races when they've met the class point threshold* communicated by the Muzzle Run team at the time. Group 2 hounds currently:
  • Can qualify for tournaments
  • Can enter paid races up to 50 Matic
  • Can enter paid Sit & Go's up to 8 Matic
  • Can enter trials for Group 1 (see Group 1 below for more info on trials)

Group 1

The most prestigious class hosting the very top echelon of racers on Muzzle Run. A hound qualifies to run Group 1 races by placing in a Group 1 trial event. Group 1 hounds currently:
  • Can qualify for tournaments
  • Are entered into an exclusive monthly Group 1 tournament automatically
  • Can enter paid races up to 200 Matic
  • Can enter paid Sit & Go's up to 8 Matic
Once qualified Group 1 hounds remain in that class for the entire month. On the first of every month any hound that qualifies for Group 1 will be entered in to the monthly Group 1 tournament. On the last day of every month, the bottom 10% of Group 1 hounds according to their monthly Muzzle League points are downgraded to their respective lower class allowing space for the next qualifiers to take their shot. Group 1 Stays Elite: Group 1 hounds are not affected by class points and maintain their elite status until relegated. The bottom 33%, ranked by their overall monthly Muzzle League points, will face relegation. Once relegated, Group 1 hounds can not run Group 1 again, they are effectively "retired" from the class system and are no longer eligible to run class based races or events. However, they can enter Open events and races for all time.
Trials for Group 1 are open to all Group 2 hounds and will be held at the end of every month. These trials will be conducted in a Tournament format and participants will have the opportunity to compete for a prize pool. The number of hounds promoted to Group 1 after trials depends on the amount of hounds relegated from Group 1 (See Muzzle League for further info)
