    It has been far too long since I was in a position to run one of these without worry of sudden academic projects interfering. Now that summer has arrived for me...

    At long last, the fourth tournament approaches! Come one, come all, and let us determine who the true masters of Spleef are!

    Spleefosseum.png
    Date: Saturday, June 7th, at 2 pm US Eastern Time (DST).
    See here if this is not your time zone: http://tinyurl.com/SpleefIV

    Location: The Spleefosseum, Bay of Birdtross, Voxellia (x 53, y 139, z 1236)
    There should be a portal to the Spleefosseum in the new Portal Tower once it is installed- I will provide transportation if it is not yet ready.

    Bring: Food. Some cake* will be provided, but not constantly refreshed.
    Armor is allowed, but unnecessary and discouraged.
    1 Diamond Shovel will be provided to all entrants, replaceable if broken.

    Arena Rules: (Standing code of conduct for the Spleefosseum)
    No jumping the countdown timer.
    No whining about lag.
    Please do not throw the snowballs.
    Place all snowballs picked up in the chests at the collector exit.
    No audience interference of any kind.
    No standing on the glass panes bordering the arena or the outer wall of the stadium.
    Stay out of the reloader area and control tower.

    Tournament Rules: (Rules only applicable to this event)
    After three tournaments of shenanigans, I believe I have worked out the best way to do this. Instead of my own contrived elimination system, it will be 1v1, single elimination, with all matches being first to 3 / best of 5.

    No islanding.
    Islanding is defined as purposefully cutting oneself off from the rest of the arena to
    survive by being inaccessible.

    The tournament will be kept track of in this Challonge page: http://challonge.com/CWST4
    Please note that the bracket will not be fully correct until the tournament starts- it will change as participants are added.


    Banned items:
    Enchanted shovels
    Wood, stone, iron, or golden shovels.
    Potions
    Ender Pearls
    Or anything else that might unfairly impact the game of Spleef.

    Any breaking of the rules will result in a warning, loss of the round, or a disqualification, depending upon the severity and/or repeated occurrence.

    For anyone unaware of how to play Spleef, see here: http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Spleef

    Prizes:
    1st: The Spade of the Champion, 3 Diamond Blocks, 1 Nether Star, and a plaque at the
    Spleefosseum.
    2nd: The Silver Spade, 2 Diamond Blocks and 1 Sponge
    3rd: The Bronze Spade and 1 Diamond Block
    4th: The Wooden Spade and 3 Diamonds
    Last*: The Stick of Consolation

    *Last place is defined as the first person to be eliminated: i.e. the loser of the first match.


    In addition to these prizes, if anyone so wishes, they may contribute a valuable gem, ore, or enchanted item to any of the four prize levels, prior to the beginning of the tournament. None will be accepted after it starts.

    All original prizes are subject to change- I may be able to offer more cool stuff.

    (The stick for last place is a joke. Don't offer any more junk items.)

    Only ores/enchanted/named items will be accepted, with the exception of nonmaterial prizes such as the Greater Library epitaph received by champion of the first tournament.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​
    There is no risk of death, and the stadium is over water,
    so don't worry about losing exp or any items you bring.

    I will be organizing the competitors into brackets via the following methods:
    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.

    In the event that the slots are not filled by the time of the tournament, any online at the time are welcome to fill the remaining places, provided that there remain an even number of participants.

    *"Cake" may or may not refer to a food or to an all-devouring being from the Furthest Ring.

    Please post here to register for the tournament by stating your full Minecraft username.

    One condition though... Am I able to come 30-45 minutes late? There's something going on in the morning and I really would like to Spleef wif the best of 'em. If not, I'll just come watch and enjoy the floor-holeing.

    I can shift the time back by an hour if those who already signed up can still make it then. Would that be acceptable to everyone? (That way, jben and Macpants could attend.)

    Don't worry. You'll have your chance to reclaim the crown next time- I plan to hold at least one more of these this summer. :p

    Lol, makes lots of sense:

    "1 Diamond Shovel will be provided to all entrants, replaceable if broken."

    Banned items:
    Wood, stone, or diamond shovels

    Two lines down:

    "Anything except food and unenchanted diamond shovels."

    That was a relic of the previous tournament, when we used golden shovels, as I copy the whole post and edit the relevant parts each time. I have now corrected these grievous mistakes. :p
