The new race format Showdown Leagues is in the starting blocks. Natural Motion is releasing it to the player community in waves, exactly like ShowDown races were some time ago. When the Beta Phase (feels like alpha though) is finished on the 14th of April 2021, the new format will be released to all players.
ShowDown Leagues explained
ShowDown Leagues builds on the ShowDown feature and records a player’s progress as a continuous score in the form of points. Players who have similar scores race against each other in a weekly Leaderboard. The top 6 players on the Leaderboard at the end of the week advance to the next league! Each Leaderboard consists of 20 players.
Does ShowDown Leagues have Seasons?
Yes, each ShowDown League Season is for a limited duration. This means that as a Player you start every Season from ZERO and have to work your way up to be successful. It also means that you only have a fixed time frame to earn enough ShowDown League Tokens for the Hero Cars.
In the first beta season you can advance through 7 different Leagues and earn Tokens to buy the three ShowDown League Hero Cars.
The Seven ShowDown Leagues
Starting with the Rookie League, you will need to be among the Top 6 in your weekly League Leaderboard to climb up the ladder.
For every higher weekly League Leaderboard, you will have to score a minimum Number of ShowDown Points (SP) and be among the Top 6 Racers in your weekly League Leaderboard. (Requirements below)

How to earn ShowDown Points?
Per SD Leagues Event there will be Cars that get’s boosted SP, the Boost Cars. Boost Cars are a best way to increase your progress in the SP Leagues. Using a Boost Car doubles the ShowDown Points. A Boost Icon marks the Boost Cars for each Season.
You can earn even more SP bonus % by collecting Throphy Milestones
- 400 Trophys – adds 10% SP Boost
- 800 Trophys – adds 15% SP Boost
- 1200 Trophys – adds 25% SP Boost
You can also buy SP Boosts wich add 30% SP and last 4 hours – once free thereafter buyable with 50 gold. Don’t know if this resets daily or not.
Important! There is a new Points System (SP) and a new ShowDown League Token Currency (SLT) to buy Cars. Time to succeed is limited. Using Boost Cars doubles your SP Earnings.
