The days shorten further, and winter’s true bite
Comes frosty and chilly through long, windy night.
But kindle some candles, then bundle up warm,
And brew up some cocoa to weather the storm.
And while you are weathering, here comes a treat:
We’re baking you badges and points oh-so-sweet!
Our tournament’s in its penultimate round.
Let’s see which two teams are victorious crowned!
Begin at 11:00 AM on Monday 11/29
End at 11:00 AM on Sunday 12/5
Awarded at 1:30 PM on Monday 12/6
(All times EST. This will also overlap squarely with Hanukkah, so: happy Hanukkah!)
Now that the Quarterfinals have ended, we take a short break for the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US, and after that we come back with 4 teams playing simultaneously over the course of 7 calendar days. If your team did not make the Semifinals, you can join a new team; if your team did advance, you stay on the same team. You can join at any time before the last 24 hours of the Semifinals, but remember that your points will only count starting from the time that you join. The bottom 2 teams will be eliminated after this round.
Bonuses (50 cube minimum required):
- The Starting Lineup will consist of the 8 best players on each team.
- The Starting Lineup on each team will earn a bonus equal to 150% of their base score.
- All other players on each team will earn a bonus equal to 50% of their base score.
- The MVP on each team will earn an additional 40,000 points.
