Congratulations to all who participated in the tournament! We hope you had as much fun participating as we did hosting!

As with previous tournaments, unique titles and achievements have been awarded depending on your final standings in the tournament. Keep in mind all rewards are inclusive with the exception of the gift card awards (e.g., Frostfire will have all of the achievements listed below). Due to the unique prize pool, the rankings were arbitrarily determined by IsraeliRD at the inception of the event to divide contestants based on Participation (all players), Semi-Finals (Top 4), Finals (Top 2), and Winner:

All Participants: Achievement and the 'Jolly' Prefix Title.

4th Place: Achievement and the 'Jovial' Prefix Title, as well as a $10 USD Steam/Amazon Gift Card sponsored by IsraeliRD.

3rd Place: Achievement and the 'Jovial' Prefix Title, as well as a $15 USD Steam/Amazon Gift Card sponsored by IsraeliRD.

2nd Place: Achievement and the 'Jocund' Prefix Title, as well as a $25 USD Steam/Amazon Gift Card sponsored by IsraeliRD.

Winner: Achievement, 'Mirthful' Prefix title, and the winter blue trophy flair icon, as well as a $40 USD Steam/Amazon Gift Card sponsored by IsraeliRD.

Enjoy!

Frightfest is Here!

Hey all,

I'm happy to say that Frightfest is finally here, and will be available until November 10th.

Here's some exciting changes and additions we've added to this years spooktivities:

  • We've spooked out of hiding 4 new levels and gave a creepy makeover to All Angles.
  • Ghosts now whisper over 110 creepy voices, and have been properly trained to make gameplay much more enjoyable rather than constantly rolling away in fear!
  • In an (un)predictable fashion, the Boog E. Man managed to find a few new spots to be buried alive, and there's a new candy corn for those with the sweet tooth to locate.
  • If you have a lower-end system, we made changes to the visible distance of the scenery shapes so that they won't render all the time and lag you.

Lastly, since 2.1.6 we fixed some outstanding items as well as some bugs and crashes which may occur if you spook your game too much, and upgraded the version number to 2.2.0. More surprises are in store, so check out this update as soon as possible!

- Matan

P.S. - Are you doing anything at the end of the year? Because we have something coming up... :)

Labor Day Madness 2017: Aftermath

Hey everyone!

I want to thank all of our community members who were able to participate in the 2017 Labor Day Madness event! We had a BLAST playing a few hours of Marble Blast with such a large group of players.

If you were unable to make today's event, we have a few more in store! We'll post more details on the Forums and Discord in the coming weeks.

This year, we started the event a half hour early to make sure we resolved any connection or incompatibility issues prior to the official event start time. We had a handful of users experiencing some difficulties joining the server, and we appreciated your patience and assistance working with us to troubleshoot and work through these issues.

Once we had a large sum of players with us, we played a couple rounds of Hunt mode, including our annual King of the Marble camp. Afterwards, we spent some time trying out a few Mega Marble War rounds, immediately followed by several rounds of Co-Op.

We ended the afternoon with the King of the Mountain/Island series before finishing off with an Ultimate Time on Battlecube Finale.

We've uploaded a few action shots of the madness below; several users also streamed the entire event, and we encourage you to upload and share your videos of the madness in the comments!

Some technical difficulties while trying out the Puzzle series...

Turns out, some puzzles just weren't meant for 16 players.

A fitting conclusion to the end of Labor Day Madness 2017

 

Thank you again, and we'll certainly see you in 2018 for more Labor Day Madness!
