Spoiler: Discord https://discord.gg/XbZuQ9U Spoiler: Website https://club.mpcleague.com/ The SkyWars Competitive League (SWCL) is an organization of competitive teams that are interested in the competitive aspect of Minecraft, and more specifically SkyWars. In the past, tournaments and fights were held between guilds, in the form of GvGs. We’d like to introduce a system where people can form teams and participate in 5v5 matches against other established teams. These teams don’t have to be comprised of people from just one guild, they can be composed of anyone. This league is in collaboration with the Podcrash Competitive League (PDCL) who oversees the league and makes sure everything is running smoothly. The PDCL is known for its various leagues on the Mineplex network, and are excited to introduce this Hypixel related league. The SWCL is attempting to bring together teams of players on the Hypixel Network, in an easy and accessible manner, to participate in team fights and tournaments. How to create/join a team: If you want to create a team, you have to navigate to the official website and follow the procedures and requirements for creating a team. Once your team has been registered and approved, you can find instructions on how to add people to your team or promote people within your team on the SWCL Discord. If you want to join a team, you can find recruitment messages for established teams on the Discord in the #recruitment channel and follow their process. There are currently two types of matches: Scrimmages: (Also known as unofficial matches) These are randomly scheduled 5v5 fights scheduled between team leaders at any random time. They will follow league guidelines which can be found in the SWCL rulebook. Team leaders can find other teams in the Discord that want to scrimmage, and schedule a time for it to take place. Both teams will go about scrimmaging at the decided time. *In the case where another full team of 5 isn’t available for a scrimmage, a team leader can ask in the Discord for a random 5 players to join the party and participate. The random team of players is called “Assorted Randies,” often abbreviated as “AR.” Competitive Matches: (Also known as official matches) Currently, our competitive matches are held in a bracket-style tournament mode. This tournament will consist of the typical 5v5 fights following league guidelines and rules. These tournaments will be scheduled by the management team. Winning matches in a tournament come with various rewards and prizes. There are divisions, and rankings in each division, for teams to strive for. Navigate to a section below for more insight into competitive matches, it will also provide a little glimpse at what other leagues’ rankings look like. Different staff positions in the league include: Referees: An organized group who will monitor the league and handle cheaters. Advisors: People who have a strong understanding of SkyWars, they will vote on various discussions over rule changes and new ideas. The collective group is known as the advisory board. Hosts: The individuals that host matches and ensure a fair and enjoyable game experience. Head Advisor: Person who manages the Advisory Board and edits the SWCL Rulebook. Head Referee: Person who manages the Referee team. Head Host: Person who manages the Host team. Management: People in charged of the league (includes Head Advisor, Head Referee, and Head Host). Spoiler: Discord https://discord.gg/XbZuQ9U By participating in the SWCL, it is highly encouraged, and practically essential, to join the Discord. The Discord describes the league in more depth, allows participants to communicate with each other, provides channels for team leaders to schedule fights and events, and much more. It is a great way to stay active in the community. In the near future, we plan to provide the league with a competitive bracket-style team tournament, with a multitude of seasons. Each season will compose of competitive matches, which are required for teams to participate in. I will describe the layout of these matches, which were also stated in a section above.Competitive Matches: Our competitive matches will be held in a bracket-style tournament mode.
