SPOTLIGHT: Bored Ape Yacht Club Member Remy& His Team Won $144K USD In The HV-MTL Forge Shard Contest!

To the victor goes the spoil! This Bored Ape Yacht Club member and professional gamer led a team into the HV-MTL Forge’s Rift to Battle Bosses during the Hunt earlier this year and returned to the swamp with 86,376 $Ape or $144,000 USD in hand!


After 126 days of grinding the HV-MTL Forge, and three weeks of intense battles against ravage Rift Boss beasts, BAYC member Remy and his team won a six-figure prize during the dungeon crawler phase of Yuga Labs' Forge game!


“It feels amazing to win and I couldn’t be more proud of my team,” Remy told the Gazette earlier this month. “We put in the effort from the opening of the Rift and manifested this win into reality.”


As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Season six of the HV-MTL Forge showcased a seasonal contest—the HV-MTL Shard Competition.

In this competition, players' Mechs faced off against Rift Bosses to earn Shard points, climb the seasonal leaderboard, and have a chance to win some $Ape!


To get the top spot and win the 83,376 $Ape prize, Remy told the Gazette that he and his team spent a ton of time in the Rift experimenting until they found the optimal shard output of 1.2 million and 40,000 energy cost runs.


“The more time spent in the Rift the better as you’re always gaining energy, which is what made the 40k runs so efficient,” Remmy said. “We would get 90 minutes of play per session and then hit our portals with wanderlusts when the first portal reached 900k total energy. We also would repair the first three portals as soon as we entered the fourth to ensure the first three would regenerate a free 90k energy while we were gathering from the last portal. Hitting the portals at 900k ensured the last portal would be max by the time you reached it. Overall, our team was the fastest and we had great strategies. Speed to clear the rift was the most important thing that was in your control within this game and we killed it.”


After they received their reward last week, Remy told the Gazette that he and his team will be reinvesting their winnings back into the Yuga Labs ecosystem.


“I plan to reinvest the money back into the Yuga ecosystem and keep gaming in the future with my team,” he said. “We’re all planning to stick around and work together to win whatever is next. Don’t sleep on us.”


Looking forward, Remy told the paper that he’s bullish on Yuga Labs’ gaming endeavors and that he’d love to see the company do a first-person shooter and keep offering big prize pools to inspire competition outside the swamp.


The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow Remy and his team and will let you know what they do next! Stay tuned for updates!
