The end of the year is creeping upon us faster than those spooky ghosts, and with it the Winterfest event.
To celebrate the year's end, I am pleased to announce that I will be hosting the Festival of Champions event, with a prize pool of $90.

To sign-up for this event please post here. Entries for this event close 20th December 2017*.
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, December 29th 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: 40 USD
- Second place: 25 USD
- Third place: 15 USD
- Fourth place: 10 USD

The prizes are sponsored by IsraeliRD.
You can select on receiving the prize as a gift card either on Steam or Amazon.com


Rules and Formalities

Event Format
The tournament will be played as a single elimination tournament in best of three up to the semi finals, which will be played as best of five rounds. The finals and 3rd place play-off will be played as best of seven rounds.
The person who chooses the first match is chosen by a randomizer, and then the next map will be chosen by alternating between both players. Should a tie breaker occur (scores of 1-1, 2-2 or 3-3), 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.

Titles and Achievements
A number of unique titles and achievements, as well as a special flair 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. In addition a referee must be present in the same game. 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 playable maps are their Winterfest edition. The map selection is fixed and not negotiable.
Map pool for the first rounds, semi-final and finals are fixed as well.
The map pool for the tournament will be posted closer to the starting date.

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.
Should more than 16 players be signed up, a "Round Zero" will be created where randomly chosen players (again via challonge's initial listing) will play each other to qualify to the first round.
These players will have from December 22nd to December 28th to organise their own matches with their opponents and play their round. The winner is based on best of three matches and both players should play on either Tsuf or Thistle while following the match format listed above.

Should a player be unavailable to play his match-up for Round Zero, his opponent will be qualified to the next round.
The best "losers" from Round Zero can have a chance of making it to Round One should there be no-shows by players in the first round. As such these players should make themselves available on December 29th.

Result Reporting
Games should be reported as they happen either by one of the players or the referee. 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 might be disqualified. At this point the opponent will advance. Players are expected to continue playing until eliminated or until the end of the tournament is reached.
If you do not show up to the tournament, you will be replaced by a player who lost Round Zero but had an overall lowest score difference.

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 20th December 2017. *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.

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


Good luck to all players!

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!

As much as I would like to sign up for this, my family's schedule has been known for a degree of unpredictability as of late, especially if this thing is going to take 4-6 hours. As it seems highly preferred that I don't sign up tentatively and drop out if needed, I'll wait until much later in the sign up period to make my decision. If this is a negative for me, best of luck to all in bringing home the dough. :D

I'm going to assume this thing is going to be completely centered around Gem Hunt, which, as I've made clear several times, is definitely not my forte, but whatever, man. As long as I have some sort of fun and establish myself a bit more in the community, I'm in.
