It’s me CountDoDo! Since its a bit of a heavy load for the mods this school holidays, I am going to be in charge of hosting the BedWars Tournament, with help from cramskii & qetzi. This post will outline all the info so make sure to read it all! (Disclaimer: A lot of this post is copy and pasted, I give credit to JohnsanGeezo for making it).
Every match (yes that means the Grand Finals too) will be a double elimination knockout. You have to lose twice in order to be out of the competition. If you lose once, you can still come back and win the entire competition! Every match will be played on Forest, NOT Castle, Forest. There will be no grace periods, and the matches will run as normal BedWars matches
The Tournament will go for just over a week, from:
Sunday 3rd July to Monday 11th July
Registrations for the tournament will close at 9pm on Sunday, 3rd of July. The brackets will be public and available on Monday, 4th of July.
There are 2 ways you can register, either:
React to this message on the LibraryCraft Discord.
Send an in-game mail to CountDoDo in the SURVIVAL WORLD, saying you want to join.
Once the competition has started, participants will have to schedule their matches themselves, play them, and then message the results of their match to CountDoDo. They can do this either by posting on the Discord in tournaments or mailing CountDoDo in-game.
If you cannot play your match during the allocated time, you will be forced to forfeit the match. As soon as you realise that you can’t play the match report it! Its very hard to manage tournaments when there are forfeits at the last second.
Once a new match has been confirmed and the players have been tagged/messaged in game/Discord, you have 24 hours to PLAY the match, or it will be deemed a forfeit. The player that is causing the delay will be the player that has to forfeit. If this can’t be determined, there will be a random 50/50 decision by a random wheel.
The prize for this competition is a $50 JB-HiFi Voucher for the winner organised by the mods! The runners up may get a prize of diamonds, but don’t count on it, its not confirmed yet.
FAQ (I will be using the FAQ John has written before with changes for this tourney (I did not write this part)
What should I report to CountDoDo?
- Report if you are unable to schedule a match during the allocated week.
- Both players must report the results after the match, in either Discord (#tournaments) or using in-game mail. CountDoDo will then update the bracket, so the next match can be scheduled.
Can I report to LightKLibrary or JohnsanGeezo?
Nope, to lighten the load on the moderator team, CountDoDo will be in charge of the matches for this tournament, so send your results to him.
Are you sure we can’t delay the matches we can’t play to a different week?
Yes. You must complete your matches in the tournament week. This is so results and prizes can be finalised in a timely fashion, and stops a lot of confusion.
Can we use a different map, like Castle?
No, all matches must be played on Forest, so it’s fair for everyone.
Can we have longer grace periods before PvP starts?
No, the default game settings must be used. All matches must be played fair and according to the rules. If exploits or cheats are seen to be used, the player using them will instantly forfeit the match, and the player will be placed in jail according to server rules.
Can another player (registered or not registered) play instead?
No, Unfortunately due to the small size of the tournament this year, there will be no substitutes. Whoever causes the most delay in coming to a match or cannot attend will be the one who has to forfeit
Is there a limit?
No! There is no limit for players joining, the brackets may look a little different, but we don’t want to exclude anyone!
Ok, what are the brackets?
They’re not made yet – you need to register first!
