[HM Olympics] Ironball - Arrows vs Camels - The Rematch!

Postby ~Jake » Thu Jul 05, 2018 5:09 pm

The Olympics

Welcome to the inaugural game of the HelloMiners Olympics! Many of you have been anticipating this event for years and years, and hopefully our services can live up to the expectation. As tradition we will have the flagship sport of our server, ironball and many other old and new games for everyone to participate in. We've garnered plenty of support and contribution from our staff and player community to make this possible, so please enjoy the fruit of your hard work.

Ironball

The 2018 Balls Of Iron cup was definitely a success and we hope to bring the same (or even better) for you this summer. And what's bigger than a tournament? Well, in the olympics, we will have an ironball league! Ironball is the traditional sport of HelloMiners and we aim to electrify it through the olympics. It is played much like football and field hockey.

[+] 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 20 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

Teams will be comprised of three (3) starters and at least 1 reserve player. The more players per team, the better. Each city (8) will have their respected team and will battle each other in the regular season. The top 2 teams will automatically play in the semi finals, and 3rd-6th seed will battle in the wild card round.

How to apply your team:

Code: Select all

Team Name:
Roster:
Team Colors/other details:

Example wrote:City: HelloClan
Team Name: Renegades
Roster: player_a, player_b, player_c, player_d
Team Colors/other details: Grey and Orange


Regular Season

Each team will play twice in a regular season, and that means eight games in four weeks. We will be using the points system, and modified it. A win would amount to 3 points, a tie would amount to 1 point, a loss would amount to 0 points, and absence of the team would amount to -1 points. Your standings will be based on points and tiebreakers will be based on goal difference.

Games will be played for 20 minutes, 10 minute halves. If the game is tied, then a 5 minute overtime period will be granted.
