Meet an Earner with @UC_Ralphbielsa
In our Meet an Earner interview series, we ask real-life web3 earners about their journey, experiences and insights on earning with web3.
This week, we had the pleasure of interviewing @UC_Ralphbielsa, an enthusiastic Ultimate Champions player. Learn more about their playing and earning experience with Ultimate Champions and how you can get in on the action today!
Tell us a little about yourself (only what you’re happy to share!). Where do you live? Do you work, study etc?
How did you learn about Ultimate Champions? When did you start using it?
I fell in love with fantasy football playing FPL (Fantasy Premier League), it was the perfect combo between being a sport fan and my appetite for data and dashboards and indicators of good performances to come.
The FPL matrix of scoring felt a bit short and simple though after a few seasons, and I got a bit bored. A friend more well-versed than me in web3 and play to earn games, showed me Ultimate Champions.
What do you like about Ultimate Champions?
I immediately fell in love: 11 player teams, rich scoring matrix, ability to own and trade the players you have, the excitement to align a lot of different line-ups the same weekend, the excitement to have great weekly and yearly rewards that will justify the time spend on the game. It was a perfect mix for me to dive into it head first! That was in May/June 2022 and since then I’ve been pretty much addicted, of course the more you dive into the data, the scoring matrix, the more you learn from your mistakes and see things without being result oriented, the better you become at building your line ups for the next game week. But I think there is as many ways to play Ultimate Champions as there are managers, everybody can play the way they like!
How often do you use Ultimate Champions? Where do you use it?
I mostly play from my laptop because I have a big gallery and I need the most clarity possible to create the best possible teams for the upcoming games but I will use often mobile too, to edit a line-up on the go, or to snap a bargain on the marketplace.
Roughly how much $CHAMP do you earn per week or month?
Since the new tournament structure update for the new season which started early August, I earned a whopping 128k $CHAMP and 188k $MGC, that’s $3500 USD in $CHAMP at today’s rate and the equivalent of $1900 USD in $MGC (which is the money that can be used only in game to buy packs). So the equivalent of $5400 USD in 6 weeks, I’m very very thrilled about this. I’m reinvesting my winnings in the game because ROI is insanely good right now. For me, but also for anybody starting and wanting to build a gallery, and the best part? You have fun while doing it !
Can you tell us about any unique experiences you have had whilst playing Ultimate Champions ?
Well you have the thrill every game, to have a player you own score a last minute goal. But you can also participate in some challenges to win some tickets to see live games! I won a ticket to go see an Arsenal game at the Emirates in May, I was SO psyched (sadly Eurostar personnel was on surprise strike that day and I couldn’t go to England), but I’ll try my luck another time for sure!
Where else are you earning on web3?
I’m not playing another web3 game right now, to be honest I wouldn’t have the time. I’m not the most well versed person in crypto space in general either but there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that web3 play-to-earn games have a huge and bright future ahead of them and will take the biggest piece of the cake in the next crypto bull run!
