The BAYC Updated Dashers' Passes Today.Here's What We Know So Far About The Summoning Event
After the Bored Ape Yacht Club locked in scores from the DooKey Dash Toad Mode yesterday evening, the club updated the metadata on Dashers passes this afternoon.
After two adventurous trips into the sewer below the swamp, DooKey Dashers’ final scores and ranks are locked in.
“Reminder: All Sewer Passes with a “Ranked” trait that display “Yes” will be eligible to participate in the Summoning this March 15th, 2023,” the BAYC tweeted this afternoon after the metadata update.
After today’s metadta update, 25,691 Sewer Passes are eligible to participate in the highly anticipated Summoning event while 790 passes are labeled as “VOID” and will not be eligible to participate, according to Yuga Labs.
“When the summoning begins you must hold a Sewer Pass that has a frozen score tied to it from playing at least one round of Dookey Dash with a score greater than 0,” the company stated on its DooKey Dash FAQ page.
At this time, the BAYC has not confirmed much about the Summoning event, but we do know that the Summoning will utilize a burn mechanic, according to BAYC Community Manager NGBxBen. “You will burn an eligible pass to summon a power source,” he wrote in the Club’s Discord several times.
Along with the Summoning event utilizing a burn mechanic, Yuga Labs has also confirmed that each summoned power source will be unique.
“Every summoning will result in a unique power source that will consist of traits of varying rarity,” the company wrote. “Your power source won't look exactly the same as any others.”
Dashers will want to claim their power sources during the Summoning so they can participate in the BAYC’s future mini-games and upgrade their power sources to the next evolutionary stage.
“You'll want to summon your power source so that it can be utilized in the future mini-game sets to reach the Evo 2 stage and beyond,” the club wrote.
Take a look at the Evolution progression chart that the club shared on its MDVMM website earlier this year.
Many in the community believe that the power sources that Dashers’ will summon during the event on March 15th will tie into Gary the Dog Prophet’s “The Future” drawing of Mecha Apes from January 19th, based on tweets from the club’s Co-Founder, Garga.
“Get in nerds we’re going to summon something,” Garga tweeted at the time as he retweeted Gary’s drawing.
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow the Summoning event and will let you know when Yuga Labs and the BAYC give the community more information. Stay tuned for updates!
