Event: Spleef Tournament // AvatarMC Discord Direct Link

The Spleef Tournament is back for its third appearance! Read on to learn about this frosty tournament to kick off the month of March.

When will it be? Direct Link
  • The event will take place on Saturday, March 6 at 19:00 UTC. For those who use Google's search engine, this query will find exactly what time this is in your time zone. World Time Buddy is also a helpful resource.

How do I join? Direct Link
  • Please join the Discord and sign up in the Tournament Chat or message a moderator / chat moderator in-game. There may be limited availability to sign up on the day, but we encourage you to sign up in advance to help the event run smoothly.

How do you play Spleef? Direct Link
  • The objective is very simple. Four players will be in the arena at any one time, and they must attempt to break snow from under the feet of their opponents, dropping them into the pit below for elimination. There is no bending allowed—you just have to be good at jumping over holes!
  • Any attempt to camp (breaking the snow around you in an attempt to stop from others reaching you or the platform you're standing on) will cause the arena to reset and repeated camping can lead to a disqualification from the round or tournament. Please note that inactivity does not constitute camping, as camping is an active action.

Will there be rewards? Direct Link

This event's rewards will be done slightly differently, with rewards being given on a per-round basis rather than the over all champion. Participation rewards will still only be given out once though.

  • First Place: 20,000¥
  • Second Place: 10,000¥
  • Third Place: 5,000¥
  • Participation: Everyone who signs up for the tournament and participates in it without missing any matches will receive a participation prize. This will consist of sixteen Spirit Essence. First, second and third place winners will receive these as well.
