How the service works
Donets will be awarded by drawing among those who predict the winner of the tournament and get it right.
In addition, one Donetto is accumulated for every 10 times a player "cheers" using a ticket (voting ticket), so that players can accumulate Donetto just by cheering without predicting the winner.
The accumulated Donets can be exchanged for Amazon Gifts from "Doneto Exchange" on My Page.
Can it also be used as a team and player directory?
The "Donate + eSports" site contains PLAYER information, and as of June 20, 2022, there are 299 registered players.
The site includes player names, portraits (or icons), competition titles, achievements, and various links, and can be viewed without registering as a member, so it can be used as a player directory as well.
What is surprising is that the service has collected information on as many as 299 names in the short time since its release.
It is notable that the competition title of a well-known SAMURAI SHODOWN and KOFXV player is "Granblue Fantasy Versus," and in the case of "DetonatioN Gaming," there is no team listed on the official website. In the case of "DetonatioN Gaming," only "Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War" is listed without the team listed on the official website.
If the teams were listed without permission by referring to the official site, this would not be possible, so it is likely that the teams are listed at the request of players and teams.
Since there is only one player listed for KOFXV, which is currently very popular and is the title of a tournament handled by the service, the convenience of the site will improve as the number of players increases in the future.
Expectations for Future Service Development
As mentioned above, tickets (ballots) can be obtained by logging in or by invitation, but the service also has a " Notation regarding the Act on Specified Commercial Transactions " page, which includes a section on sales prices.
The contents of the page reads, "The price varies depending on the content. The price will be displayed on the purchase screen of each content. The price includes consumption tax. This means that it may be possible to purchase tickets for a fee in the future.
If so, there will be a possibility to predict the winner with the purchased tickets and get a lot of donets (Amazon gifts).
We look forward to the development and expansion of Donespot in the future.
