Event cancelled due to lack of players signing up.
After a lot of thought, I've decided to host a tournament. I've always wanted to host a tournament but I kept forgetting. With the new event lindovski made, I remembered this.
To explain, this tournament will be Blocky (read below to see what this is). A few days after the build map reset (about 17 months ago) I made a small Blocky arena. It's simple but it is fun at points and I'm sure you guys will enjoy it.
HOW TO PLAY:
What is Blocky exactly? Blocky is a game by Martyn Littlewood (inthelittlewood) based off of handball or ultimate frisbee. There is a ball (due to restrictions on build the ball will have to be a book. Sorry), 2 teams of 2, and 2 goals. The players stand in their designated color and wait for the start of the game. Once the ball is thrown into the middle, the players sprint to the ball and pick it up. When a player has a ball, they are unable to move. The player must throw the ball to their teammate to advance to the goal. The goal is scored and that team scores a point. The team wins when they get 4 goals in the opposite team's goals.
1. Don't move with the ball.
2. You have 20 seconds to throw the ball once catching it. Be quick or it's a turnover!
3. Don't stand in the goals. It's annoying and it disorients the referee.
4. If the ball is in the goal, don't pick it up. Let the referee get it to start the round again.
5. Don't throw the ball to yourself. That's cheap...
6. Not complying to these rules will result in a DQ from the competition. We want this to be fun, let's not ruin that!
PLANS (DATE, TEAMS, TIME, ETC.):
At the moment I have not gotten a set date, although I'll confirm it will be on a Saturday. For teams, teams of 2 will be made by your choice and I'd like 8 teams to be made, and 16 at maximum. For time during the day, most likely at 12pm noon EST, or 5pm GMT. I want people to come and attend instead of saying they can't come!
The event will be on Build, incase you are wondering.
My current prize for the 2 winners are statues of their skins located behind the blocky arena, and to add, $100k in Survival money for each player. The 2nd place team will get $25k Survival money, as well as statues placed behind the 1st place statues.
EDIT: The date of the event will probably be on September 7th, at either 12pm or 1pm EST (GMT -5). Sign ups are now available. Remember that they are teams of two!
