    Hey! It's that time again!

    We are announcing our third tournament: SkyWars - Crazy Solo.
    If you don't know about tournaments or the Tournament Hall, or if you'd like to know more about some of the terms in this post, make sure to take a look at the first tournament post.

    If you missed out on previous tournaments, no big deal!
    You don't need to have played in previous ones to participate. You are on an even footing every tournament.

    How to participate?
    The SkyWars solo tournament will take place on March 15th.
    It will last 48 hours total, from 6:00 PM EST March 15 to 6:00 PM EST March 17.


    There will be a Tournament Mode NPC in SkyWars lobby (as well as the tournament Hall).
    You will also be reminded about the tournament in a few different lobbies across the server.

    Continue reading to learn all the details!
    Tournament Rules
    Brackets & Points
    There will be 5 brackets in this tournament: Starter, Gold, Diamond, Master, Grandmaster.

    As there is only a single winner, climbing brackets is a bit different:
    -> You will go up a bracket by being within the last 3 alive.
    -> You will also go up a bracket by scoring at least 3 kills.
    You will stay in your bracket if you manage to score enough points during the game.

    Players earn Tournament Points from wins and kills.
    We added two point bonuses: First Blood and Last Kill.
    First Blood is earned by getting the first kill in a game.

    Last Kill is obtained when killing the last player. This means if they fall to their death, it doesn't count.
    This large bonus serves as an incentive to avoid stalling the game.

    Assists generally count the same as kills.

    Starter Bracket:
    Kill or Assist: +1 Points
    First Blood: +1 Point bonus
    Last Kill: +1 Point bonus
    Win: +7 Points
    Death (Loss): 0 Points! (No loss in this bracket)
    Win, last 3 alive or 3 kills = Instant promotion to Gold Bracket.
    Anything else = Stay in Starter Bracket
    -----------

    Gold Bracket
    :
    Kill or Assist: +2 Points
    First Blood: +2 Points bonus
    Last Kill: +3 Point bonus
    Win: +10 Points
    Death (Loss): -2 Points
    Win, last 3 alive or 3 kills = Instant promotion to Diamond Bracket.
    You earned at least 0 Point total: You stay in Gold Bracket
    You earned -1 Points or less: Demotion to Starter Bracket
    -----------

    Diamond Bracket:

    Kill or Assist: +3 Points
    First Blood: +2 Points bonus
    Last Kill: +5 Points bonus
    Win: +12 Points
    Death (Loss): -3 Points
    Win, last 3 alive or 3 kills = Instant promotion to Master Bracket.
    You earned at least 1 Point total: You stay in Diamond Bracket
    You earned 0 Points or less: Demotion to Gold Bracket
    -----------

    Master Bracket
    :
    Kill: +5 Points
    Assist: +4 Points
    First Blood: +2 Points bonus
    Last Kill: +5 Points bonus
    Win: +15 Points
    Death (Loss): -5 Points
    Win, last 3 alive or 3 kills = Instant promotion to Grandmaster Bracket.
    You earned at least 3 Points total: You stay in Master Bracket
    You earned 2 Points or less: Demotion to Diamond Bracket
    -----------

    Grandmaster Bracket
    :
    Kill: +6 Points
    Assist: +4 Points
    First Blood: +2 Points bonus
    Last Kill: +4 Points bonus
    Win: +20 Points
    Death (Loss): -7 Points
    Win, last 3 alive or 3 kills = You stay in Grandmaster bracket
    You earned at least 4 Points total: You stay in Grandmaster Bracket
    You earned 3 Points or less: Demotion to Master Bracket
    -----------


    NOTE: The total points at the end of a game include your negative points. This means in Gold Bracket, you only need to score 1 kill (or assist) in order to secure your bracket position.

    Playtime
    The tournament lasts for 48 hours, but each player has a max playtime of 8 hours. Previous maximum playtimes were higher, but we picked a lower maximum this time because it is a solo tournament.

    You will not be able to join the tournament mode with a party. Because of this limitation, we thought a lower time pressure would leave you time to play Hypixel with your friends during the weekend.

    Tournament Mode: Crazy Solo
    In order to spice things up for the tournament, we created a new mode based on Solo Insane.
    Despite its name and thus stronger gear, this mode aims at being more competitive and balanced.

    Kits & Perks
    All solo kits will be available for everyone in the tournament mode.

    The following perks will be maxed out and enabled for everyone: Ender Mastery, Instant Smelting, Resistance Boost, Speed Boost, Fat, Knowledge, Nourishment.

    All other perks will NOT be available or enabled in the tournament mode. (Bulldozer will not be enabled)

    Chests Loot
    • There will be a guaranteed diamond armor piece in every mid chest.
    • Items found in chests will be stronger than insane mode on average.
    • All loot will be identified island/mid/kit and whether it's from refill or not.
    • There will only be 1 refill (instead of 2) during the game
    Maps
    Only the following maps will be playable in the tournament mode:
    • Aegis
    • Tribute
    • Martian
    • Plateau
    • Strata
    • + 3 NEW MAPS
    The new maps are not confirmed to be added to the permanent map rotation yet.

    Other
    • To reduce the difference between the longest and shortest games, the enderdragons will spawn 2 minutes earlier.
    • There will be a new feature to right-click armor to equip it (both in chests and when in hand).
    • All cosmetics except cages will be disabled.

    Tournament Rewards
    Tributes
    Tributes are the rewards currency of tournaments.

    Your first win will grant +20 Tributes.
    Each win after will reward +10 Tributes.
    Each kill rewards +2 tribute.
    You can gain up to 100 tributes during the tournament.

    There are 5 new items in the Tribute Shop:
    • Favor of the Angel:
      • +1% chance for your SkyWars games to be corrupted
      • +1 SkyWars Experience per win (normally 10xp per win)
      • +500XP One-time bonus
    • New Perk - Diamondpiercer: This gives you a new Skywars perk for solo insane.
      • 20% chance to crit diamond armor wearers for +20% increased damage
    • New Tournament Cage
    • SkyWars Tournament Banner
    • SkyWars Loot Chest
    As usual, you are able to purchase all previous tribute shop rewards using tributes you earned during the SkyWars tournament.

    With a crazy tournament comes crazy rewards. :cool:

    FAQ
    > Can I play in a party?
    This tournament is strictly solo, you cannot join the tournament mode with a party. You will be able to play regular SkyWars teams with a party during the tournament if you feel like it.​

    We decided to hold a solo tournament due to popular demand.

    > What about our stats?
    Stats tracking during the tournament will be independent from the regular game.​

    > Why host a SkyWars tournament?
    Of course, SkyWars is one of the most popular games, but it also is a very competitive game, especially at the higher levels of play. We thought it was one of the more appropriate choices to hold a solo tournament.​

    PS: There will be a 5X SkyWars coins multiplier during the tournament!

    Hype! Hopefully we can get more solo tournaments in the future, like a TKR tournament or a MM Assassins tournament in the future...

    You should’ve added the prices for the new additions to the tribute shop.
