In a spooky twist for this upcoming Frightfest event (starting SoonTM), I am please to announce an extra spooky tournament called Monster Mash. This one-day tournament event will be in the joyful spirits of the Festival of Champions from last winter. Except less joyful and more spoopy. And ghosts. They like tournaments too.

To sign-up* for this event please post here. Entries for this event close 23rd October 2018**.
Further details will be posted within the thread of this news post, so be sure to check it out.

Tournament Details

Date and time
Friday, October 26th at 18:00 UTC.

To compare UTC to your local timezone, you may use one of the following internet services: greenwichmeantime , timeanddate , timezoneconverter .

This tournament will be run on PlatinumQuest's Online section, so please confirm that you have signed up there and activated your account on MarbleBlast.com. When you join the event please state your Online username as well as the name you will be using in game.

It is your own responsibility to make sure you show up at the correct time (15 minutes before the tournament is due to start) and date. The entire tournament will be finished within an estimated 4-6 hours, so please make sure to clear your schedule in advance.

Prizes
Prizes will be awarded as follows:
- First place: 25 USD
- Second place: 15 USD
- Semi-Finalists: 5 USD each

The prizes are sponsored by IsraeliRD.
You can select on receiving the prize as a gift card on Amazon.com. If you get First or are Semi Finalist you can opt for a Steam gift card instead. Second place is forced for Amazon only, sorry.


Rules and Formalities

Event Format
The tournament will be played as a single elimination tournament in best of three rounds up to the semi finals and finals, which both will be played as best of five rounds. There won't be a 3rd place match.
The person who chooses the first match is chosen by a randomizer (e.g. a coin flip), and then the next map will be chosen by alternating between both players. Should a tie breaker occur (scores of 1-1 or 2-2), the final match will be picked by the randomizer. All picks by the players and the randomizer will conform to the map pool rule below.
All games must be played with Ghosts enabled for our entertainment and your suffering.

Titles and Achievements
A number of unique titles and flairs are available to be won in addition to the above prizes.

Servers and Referees
Each game must be played on Tsuf or Thistle, and both players must be present in the chosen server. A referee may be present in the same game if so desired. Additional observers are strongly discouraged as to avoid excessive lag connection, but should both players agree that additional observers can watch, they may open additional slots.

Map pool
All Frightfest maps can be played.

Seeding
Seeding will be fixed by the tournament organizer prior to the start of the event. Players are entered into challonge which will then seed them randomly into their spots.

Result Reporting
Games should be reported as they happen either by one of the players or the referee if applicable. Once your match is finished you must wait until your next round in the leaderboard's lobby. Going idle is not recommended.

Conduct at the Event
Any conduct which tends to disrupt the event, including a failure to follow its instructions or discourteous or disruptive conduct generally may result in disqualification from the tournament. Players or individuals that disrupt or attempt to disrupt the event will be kicked or banned.

Disconnection issues
Should a player be disconnected mid-match, the following data is required: level played, time remaining, scores and who was closest to the next spawn (if applicable). If there is a clear winner, that person will be given the game point. If not, the match will be replayed. Intentional disconnecting will result in exclusion from the tournament. Cheating will result in an immediate ban from the tournament and all MarbleBlast.com services.

Being Late
Players should check-in on the leaderboards at least 15 minutes before the event is due to start. Players that fail to check-in or that do not show up to their match will be disqualified. At this point their opponent will advance. Players are expected to continue playing until eliminated or until the end of the tournament is reached.

Because there are only two servers, the players who are in the first and second brackets go first. If they are unable to start, the next bracket gets selected to start, and so on. Because of this, it is essential for players to check in and remain in the lobby ahead of their matches.
If players do not show up by the time all brackets were played in order, they will be disqualified from the tournament.

*Excluded Players
To make this tournament more fair, the 2018 Summer Hunt Tourmanet Quarterfinalists and above cannot sign up. These are: Jackrb, Eguy, Rosie, MBCollector, MBOUltimate, CylinderKnot, ItzJean & LaSharkus

Registration
If you accept the rules and wish to participate in this tournament, please post here. When you join the event please state your Online username as well as the name you will be using in game.
Registration for the event close 23rd October 2018. **Entries after that time may be accepted at the discretion of the tournament organizer.

Please do not sign up if you are not 100% sure that you will be attending the tournament.
If something comes up and you are unable to attend the tournament, please post in the tournament discussion topic at once or on the Marble Blast discord.

Streaming
The event will be streamed live by IsraeliRD, at twitch.tv/IsraeliRD


Good luck to all players!

It's probably a blessing that I cannot participate because if I participated, I would be burned out quickly. Good luck to everyone who can participate!

Gem Hunt is based on score, not time.
Awesome SCORES, not TIMES...

I’m in. Do I have to mention what’s my online username and the name I’ll be using since it’s on the left side of this post? :P

(Just kidding, my online username is “eNetro” and that’s the name I’ll be using.)

Awesome Hint:

Since the Awesome Time/Score is secret, you will have to beat it in order to find out what it is. Just practice every day, and be ready to keep pressing the 'Restart' button...A LOT!

It could quite be, but it depends on how many people join. If there are no matches that are stuck due to you at class we can work around that. That probably means you have to do your first match ASAP.
