[OQIL] Balls of Iron Cup | SCC defeats Ferobanke!

Postby ~Jake » Wed Dec 28, 2016 8:04 pm

The OQIL and the HelloMiners Government are coming together to create an Ironball event that everyone has a place in.

Ironball is back!
It's that time of the year again and Ironball is coming back big! This January we will host the Balls Of Iron cup which is a twist from normal Ironball round-robin. The Balls of Iron is a twin match first-to-three style Ironball contest which we will feature 8 pairs that will battle it out on a tournament for the ultimate cup (bucket) and prize money!

With the new Ironball which is infinite in health, games can run faster and smoother without deadballs.

What is Ironball?
As many of you new players do not know what Ironball is, it is the best form of hand-to-hand competition on this server. It's real-life cousins, Hockey and Soccer, is very similar to it. Here is Scepticon's definition of Ironball:

[+] Ironball
What is Ironball?
Ironball's closest relatives in real life are hockey (that's hockey, not ice hockey), and soccer/football (either one depending one where you live). You are put into teams, and are given sticks enchanted with knockback II, referred to as 'Ironball sticks', and extremely alike to hockey sticks (functionally at least). You the have to hit the 'ball' (an iron golem) into the opposing team's goal to score. The most popular way of deciding a winner is by doing a 'first to three' match, where to win, your team has to score three goals before the other team can. This is great for one-off games and mini-tourneys, but not so for league games. We play as the soccer/football leagues do normally, except we have 30 minute games instead of 90 minute games.
By the way, if you're wondering, the sticks are provided by the league, but if you want, you can always buy some of your own from the Government Trading Centre!

Teams

Well, remember I said this had a twist right? So instead of the traditional three starting players on a team, you can now have pairs or only 2 people playing under one team. We are looking for 8 teams of at least 2 active players.

Sign ups will end January 6th so you have at least 1 week from the time of this post to get your friends and form your team.

Prize Money for 1st place is currently estimated at 5000F! Second place is 1000F!


How to sign up for your team:

Do you agree to all of the rules and regulations of the Balls of Iron Cup?

Venue
Our current available venue right now is Orbit Stadium. However if other cities could help us out and let us use their stadiums for the games, that would be lovely.

Solaris stadium is in construction right now and will be complete before the start of competition; mail me in game and I'm sure it would be fine for you to host the event there :)
