TAW's Minecraft Division is excited to announce breaking news that we are teaming up with the RMCT community next weekend to host and stream a competitive Minecraft showcase.
RMCT stands for Reddit Minecraft Tournaments and is a community devoted to playing competitive Minecraft maps and games. RMCT provides a platform for players to get together to play against one another in an environment of cooperation and respect. They are the premier Minecraft Race for Wool tournament organisers with three very successful tournaments under their belt - and close to 2 million combined views of their video content.
Next weekend's showcase event will be the first public beta test of Chunk Wars - a mini-game for Minecraft being developed here on our very own TAWcraft server. Chunk Wars is a fun and strategic PvP mini-game that pits 2 teams against each other in a fight to the death.
Chunk Wars is a 'Bed Wars' genre mini-game where teams start with nothing and must accumulate resources and armour to protect their own spawn area (Bed) while also trying to take control of their enemy's spawn. Players respawn with unlimited lives until they lose control of their spawn area - and then they get just one life for the rest of the game!
We are working closely with the organisers of RMCT to co-ordinate and host an invitational event where a TAWcraft team will take on all-comers in a single elimination bracket tournament culminating in a final face-off between the two strongest teams. The event will be streamed live at http://live.rmct.tv/ where spectators will be able to see and hear commentary from several viewpoints during each match and get an insight into the thoughts of teams and players during the event.
Final details of the event timings will be provided in an update to this blog shortly as soon as we have confirmed exact timings for next weekend. If you have any questions about the event please contact a member of the Minecraft staff team either on TeamSpeak or via firstname.lastname@example.org - check the Units page to find staff.
