Rules and Regulations
Hello, and welcome to YokeyPokey’s first ever MINECRAFT VR Tournament! We are excited to have you participate, and wish the best of luck to all of you - but first, there are a few things to know before getting started!
When you buy admissions, you are buying admissions to that Saturday’s contest. If you do not win, you will be eliminated and cannot participate in the dates after. If you win, you will go on to participate in the final weekend of competition for the Grand Prizes. The dates for each Saturday are as follows;
Dates: March 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st @ 11AM-1PM.
Each of those Saturdays, there will be 2 events; a Treasure Hunt event where the goal for each player will be to find as many of the items on their list as possible, and a Building Competition, where contestants will have to build an original structure and have their worked judged by a panel. The Treasure Hunt will be a secondary event for fun, and to warm up in, while the Building Competition will be the main event. Finalists in both events are eligible to win prizes.
ABSOLUTELY NO CHEATING! We will know if you cheated, and this will result in disqualification.
Only one of each item counts towards a point/points. Picking up 20 dirt blocks will not net you 20 points - try to find as many of the items on the list as possible!
Contestants must adhere to tournament and store rules, and must respect the time limits. Controllers must only be used in the time limit!
Inappropriate, harmful, disruptive or offensive behavior is strictly forbidden. This will result in disqualification.
Treasure Hunt regulations
Contestants must all be using the same world template or world seed, to keep it as fair and consistent as possible, with the following settings;
Difficulty set to Easy Mode so players can fight monsters to collect their treasures
NO starting chest
Players will have basic gear to help them
Cheats and commands DISABLED
Contestants can look for the items in any order, but the items MUST be in player inventory at the end of the event to qualify. Only 1 of each will count.
Players may loot chests if they find one in a cave or dungeon.
Players may use tools to navigate the world, digging, mining, fighting, etc,.
Winners will be determined by who completes the list first or who has the most items found. Contestants who are in a Draw must break the tie by completing a tie-breaker event (TBD - possibly a smaller treasure Hunt list with rarer items and shorter time period - I will work on this and add to this later)
Contestants must obey all tournament rules. Failure to do so may lead to disqualification.
Contestants MUST create original work.
Contestants must obey time constraints, and must begin and end when directed to.
Contestants CAN NOT use third party software or cheats. Will result in disqualification.
Guests and contestants MUST NOT interfere with each other.
Absolutely NO offensive or inappropriate structures, symbols or signs.
Intentional or malicious damage to Yokeypokey equipment or property is grounds for immediate disqualification.
Contestants will all be in Creative Mode in an Infinite/Flat Terrain world.
The goal for contestants will be to build a type of structure within the allotted time. They have complete creative freedom in how to build the structure and with whichever blocks they want.
Players will be identified by their contestant # at the time of judging so that the judges will now which work belongs to who.
