    As the dawn of a new world approaches, the summer sun heralds the return of a most ancient tradition... and the greatest shovelers in the land shall gather.

    Come one, come all, and battle for supremacy in the eighth. Official. Spleef! Tournament!

    [​IMG]
    DATE: Saturday, July 21st, Year of Our Tree 2018, Epoch of Tesseract
    TIME: 18:00 UTC / 14:00 EDT (Countdown)

    LOCATION: The Spleefosseum, Event Horizon, Cubic Worlds, Earth, Prime Material Plane

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​

    If you don't know how to get there, worry not! The powers of space (but not really of time) have been granted to me by our Great Tree, and I shall summon all interested parties to the arena at the appointed time.

    All entrants will be provided with a commemorative Spleefer's Spade for use in the event (replaceable if broken). No equipment is required. In fact, we encourage you to leave your armor at home, so it's easier to tell who you are during the match!

    Risk of death is 0%, barring intervention of Asgardian deities.

    For those unaware of the premise of Spleef, see the Wiki page.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​

    EVENT RULES:

    Do not:
    - Island (Purposefully cut off your section of snow entirely).
    - Use any item besides a shovel while Spleefing.
    - Jump the countdown timer.
    - Throw the snowballs.
    - Complain about lag.
    - Interfere with the active Spleefers.
    - Stand on the glass arena wall.
    - Enter the reloader, incinerator, or control tower areas.
    - Turn off the incinerator.​
    Do:
    - Place all snowballs picked up in the chests at the collector exit.
    - Pit your brains, his strength, and his steel against 60 men.
    - Have fun!​

    Any breaking of the rules by an entrant will result in a warning, loss of the round, or a disqualification, depending upon the severity and/or repeated occurrence. Spectators that make a nuisance of themselves will be thrown off the Spleefosseum.

    Don't worry, the landing is soft.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​

    The tournament will be structured as a series of 1v1, single elimination matches, the victory condition being the first to 3 / best of 5 rounds.

    The tournament will be tracked in this Challonge page.

    The competitors will be organized into brackets as follows:
    1. Numbers will be assigned to competitors in the order they register.
    2. Competitors will be placed in brackets according to their numbers, and then scrambled with the Challonge "shuffle" feature.
    3. If any participants must be awarded a bye, due to a non-power-of-two number of Spleefers, slots will be shuffled as necessary so that no previous champion is among those given a free round.

    In the event that the slots are not filled by the time of the tournament, any players online at the time are welcome to fill the remaining places.

    Please note that the bracket will not be fully correct until the tournament starts- it will change as participants are added.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​

    PRIZES:
    1st: Aurora Wings, 4 diamond blocks, and a plaque at the Spleefosseum.
    2nd: Lightning Wings, 3 Diamond Blocks, and 1 Nether Star.
    3rd: Thunder Wings, 2 Diamond Blocks, and 2 Totems of Undying.
    4th: Cumulus Wings, 1 Diamond Block, and 64 Bottles o' Enchanting.
    Last*: The Pufferfish of Consolation
    All Participants: 1 Diamond + any spoils from the Mysterious Bonus Rounds

    *Last place is defined as the first person to be eliminated: i.e. the loser of the first match.
    All original prizes subject to change if more cool stuff can be developed.


    In addition to these prizes, all participants may keep their Spleefer's Spades to use (or hang on a wall) as they see fit.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Update: I have put together a Plug DJ Community for this event! Participants and spectators are encouraged to open it up and listen to my specially-chosen soundtracks for the tournament- no account or money required.

    I will probably be groggy, but I will compete for the glory of House Antaka.

    I'm a wampa, I was born in snow. I live in snow. This will make it all the more embarrassing when I lose in snow.
