January

January Bed Wars Tournament

That's right, it’s time for another School Holiday Bed Wars Tournament. 

Registrations are now open for the January School Holiday Tournament. All matches (including the Grand Finals) will be a double elimination knockout. You must lose twice in order to be out of the competition. If you lose once, you can still come back and win the whole thing. All matches will be played on the Forest map, and there will be no grace periods - the match will play as default.         

This time we are running one Solo tournament over a week: 9th to 16th January                                                                                                                                   

Registrations close at 9pm on Friday January 6th, and the brackets will be created and available by Sunday January 8th.  It is up to the players to schedule their matches during the week, and report back to JohnsanGeezo, preferably through Discord in #tournaments, or using in-game mail if you do not have Discord access.  Something that is crucial at this time of year - talk to your parents about your availabilities during the week. It's the January school holidays. If you have something on, you need to find out so you are aware. You need to be available to play, or it inconveniences the rest of the players, and the organisers.  You need to mail JohnsanGeezo in game to register. 

Forfeiting                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        If you cannot make your match during the allocated dates, you will forfeit the match. Report it as soon as you know. Don't leave it until the last minute! It's a lot of work to organise tournaments, and last minute forfeits can be annoying.
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 forfeits. If this can't be easily determined, it will be a 50/50 decision by the Mod Team.           
Prizes                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              There'll also be prizes for the winner - a $50 JB HiFi Voucher, plus two diamond blocks for the runner up. The final two will also receive a bonus Mega Crate key.               
FAQ                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                What should I report to John?
1. Report if you are unable to schedule a match during the allocated week.
2. Both players must report the results after the match, in either Discord (#tournaments) or using in-game mail.  John will then update the bracket, so the next match can be scheduled.
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 we add custom rules?
No, no other rules are to be set. These include extended grace periods, using golems or certain items etc.
Can another player (registered or not registered) play instead?
Yes.  This time around we're having a substitutes list. The first 16 players to register will be in the tournament proper. Any registrations before the close date over the initial 16 will go on the Substitutes list. Any late registrations (between the close date and tournament start) will also be on the Substitutes list.  You MUST be available to play during that week at short notice if you are a substitute.
Why 16?
To stop the need for byes and automatic forfeits, it's either 16 or 32. If we get to 32 we'll just extend the size of the tournament! It'll just last longer.
What are the brackets?
They're not made yet - you need to register first.
