    INTRODUCTION

    Hello everyone! I am pleased to announce that we are kicking off the brand new year with a brand new tournament for you all today! Introducing Clash of The Cakes!

    Clash of The Cakes (CoTC) is the 4th official tournament hosted by the Mineplex Competitive League. It is officially sponsored and promoted by Mineplex. CoTC is a tournament based on the current year-long operating game of Cake Wars. The game was started as a 4-way battle where you and 3 other players would obtain resources, contest for mid, and try and capture or eat the other team's cakes. The last standing team would be proclaimed as the winner. As the game continued to grow and develop, the CWCL was then officially endorsed by the MCL on April 14th, 2018. This league started like many other leagues have, a community in love with a game. After wanting a more competitive environment for their game, a handful of those community members decided to create the CWCL. Since its early days in November of last year, it was clear that competitive Cake Wars was a very popular choice for players in Mineplex, and the Mineplex Leadership Team along with the MCL 100% agree! So without further ado, I present to you our first Cake Wars tournament Clash of The Cakes!

    Well, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and register! Don’t be the person who misses out and sign up below, along with checking out our other links!

    Tournament Structure

    • This tournament will consist of two separate stages. The first stage will be played round robin style, with teams being placed into a group with three other teams. The top two teams from each group will advance to the elimination stage. Should there be a tie in the overall match record, the tie will be broken based on the result of the match between the tied teams. The second stage will be single-elimination, beginning with the 32 teams that move on from the round robin stage, and continuing until one team is left.

    • Each match will consist of 2 teams with 5 or 6 players per team.

    • A match win is determined by the team that won that 1 round
      • Round Robin Stage: In this stage, each match will consist of a single round. Your team will play all other teams in the group, and the top two teams from each group will advance.

      • Elimination Stage (Rounds 1 and 2, Quarterfinals): Here you will be doing a best out of 3 [3 Matches]. The first team to win 2 matches will progress.

      • Elimination Stage (Semifinals): If your team makes it to the semifinals, you will be doing best out of 5 (5 matches). The losing teams from this stage will play in the Bronze Match for 3rd place.

      • Elimination Stage (Finals and Bronze Match): If your team makes it to the finals, it will be best out of 5. Whoever wins this round will take 1st place, the loser will take 2nd place and the winner of the Bronze Match will be the 3rd place winner.

    • Teams will be scheduled by Tournament Managers on weekends so there is a better chance of the teams making it.

    • Rules and Guidelines
      • All of Mineplex’s Rules will apply: www.mineplex.com/rules.

        • You must have the players ready 5-10 minutes before your team is scheduled to play so we don’t delay the time.

      • You can not ask for extra time on your game, we have a schedule we will need to follow.
