    Competitor Rules
    1. No third party software of any kind that works in connection with Minecraft client or replaces the Minecraft client. No hacking, cheating, and custom skins. Hacking and cheating will be classified as doing something to give you an advantage over other players that is not part of the intended functionality of Minecraft as created by Mojang.
    2. No abusive words or behavior. If you must talk to other players please keep it fun for everyone. It is just a game, and is intended to be fun.
    3. Referees will be present, but invisible most of the time. They are there to make sure the pace of the game keeps moving, and that the integrity stays in place. They may at times manipulate the environment to encourage play. They will not engage with you or do things directly to you and players must not directly engage with them unless there is an issue.
    4. Competitors will be given a 15 minute “cushion” of time to log in each evening to continue gameplay. If a competitor logs in after 15 minutes, they will be automatically disqualified to ensure an even playing field.
    Want to be involved in the tournament, but don't really want to play? No problem! We have sponsorship opportunities that allow you to purchase items via buycraft to keep your favorite player alive and well defended! Check our Buy Craft to access our list of items available, and don't forget to input the competitor's name so they can receive it!
    What do I get if I win? A $50 Steam Gift Card! Wooooo Games!

    That's significantly fewer than I thought we'd have gotten... Did someone ever do a steam group announcement about this?

    I have mentioned this on my facebook and my Twitter once a day so far. And will continue to do so. Or at least once every other day.

    Is there a list of game play rules?
    I heard talk of no turtleing last night on TS but see nothing in writing beyond the basic behavior rules up top.
    Is there a minimum amount of time required online?
    Specific hours? etc

    No specific turtling rules. But I wouldn't expect to get comfortable in a spot for to long.

    No turtling isn't an explicit rule ATM, but the spectating GMs will be allowed to alter the environment (rule 3) to discourage it, e.g. mob spawning or altering terrain to encourage the player to move.

    Basically, the premise behind discouraging turtling is so that a player cannot simply hide in a hole and wait for 99% of the other players to die. They did the same thing in Hunger Games :)

    So I've just signed up but I do have a few questions.
    A) Will I be alerted when we are starting through my email? If so how long before will you send it?
    B) Since I am not particularly Tech-savvy, and im borrowing an account from a friend, I've no clue how to remove my skin and no intention to learn. (if Admins/Hosts find this to be an advantage, I would gladly leave the game/server)
    C) What is the server IP, or will it be sent to my email later?
    If I don't get back to you immediately im not trying to ignore you, I just don't check this site particularly often.

    I do not know the answer to A but to still answer it:
    A)The tournament will happen at 8-EST, 7 Central, 6 Mountain, and 5 Pacific, each of these nights 12th, 13th, and 14th of this month(July, i.e. next week).
    B)A skin is not a problem, I assume what they mean is a texture pack, it should be base textures.
    C) The server IP should be in the list.

    You are correct on B and C. I also don't know what the plan is for A. Character skins are OK but we have that because there are texture packs out there that would provide definite unfair advantages to unscrupulous players. As for C, check our server list ("Menu of everything", above or on the forum index). The server is called 'Tournament Minecraft'.

    Thanks for you help, but being alerted somehow would be a great way to remember.

    Thanks again!

    Alright.. A little update about me, I have decided to work on Friday Night. I honestly had forgotten that this friday, was the 12th, when I accepted a 12 hours shift. BOO I know but MONEY. So I will not be streaming on Friday night, but I will stream Saturday and Sunday night.

    Update: Due to an unfortunate event that occurred at about 6:30 this evening, My night may or may not be open on Friday, depending if I can get back home. (Those of you on who have me on Facebook may be aware of the situation of which I speak)
