What is Ironball?

Ironball is the #1 sport in Minecraft and garners thousands of players every year. It's primary server, HelloMiners, is the largest platform where all the best players and teams originate. 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 [at the event center at /warp ec]

Teams

Teams will be comprised of three (3) starters and at least 1 reserve player, so that is at least four players on each team. The more players per team, the better. Each city (8) will have their respective team and will battle each other in 8 games.

Hey Rodney I don’t think it’s a good idea to host the championship on February 3rd for that’s the American super bowl and many people have parties furring that day and night.
