This event will be a Captain’s Draft style, double elimination 3v3 Snow Day event. Grab your Captain Daddy hats, bundle up, and equip your Mountaineer wheels so we can all head to the hockey rink! This tournament will follow the same rules and regulations as the regular vVv Gaming CGN: Draft events do, except that the default map will be DFH Snowy or Utopia Coliseum Snowy instead of DFH Stadium.

When: 5PM EST / 2PM PST / 23:00 CET | Check-in starts at 4:30PM EST / 1:30PM PST / 22:30 CET and closes at 4:45PM EST / 1:45PM PST / 22:45 CET
Where: vVv Discord Server (https://discord.gg/p44AjNf) Discord Guide: http://www.vvv-gaming.com/discord
Format: 3v3 – Double Elimination Tournament. Best of three (Bo3) in the winner’s bracket and best of one (Bo1) in the loser’s bracket until the last two matches which return to best of three.

Server Settings:
– Snow Day mutators (ball type puck, ball bounciness low).
NOTE: Options must be also be changed in the mutators sub­menu!
– Map is DFH Stadium Snowy (Utopia Coliseum Snowy can also be used if both teams agree)
– Default for all other game settings

Registration: Visit http://vVv-Gaming.com/Rocket-League/Register on the day of the tournament to register.  PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU CREATE AN ACCOUNT ON THE SMASH.GG WEBSITE, link here. IT WILL BE REQUIRED TO BE IN THE TOURNAMENT.

While signing up you will be able to volunteer to be a captain. If there are more volunteer captains than the total number of teams, the captains will be picked at random from the pool of volunteers. If there are not enough volunteer captains, then the remaining number of captains needed will be chosen at random from the remainder of players. Captains will take turns picking their teammates in a “snake-style” (A, B, C, C, B, A) draft until all teams have 3 players each. Participating with friends is encouraged, however, there is no guarantee that you will be on the same team. The captain’s name will be entered into the Challonge bracket and will be used to represent their team. Voice channels will be created for each of the teams on our Discord server.

The event will last around 3-4 hours.

If you have any questions, please come to the RHL discord: https://discord.gg/0oKFkmRqFee981oM

Icy Dicey Crisis Wins the Bronze Group Gauntlet

Team Icy Dicey Crisis has won the Bronze Group Gauntlet going undefeated and acquiring the most points overall in the bracket. Each match in the Gauntlet was a best of 3 where teams received points for each game won in their matches.

The following RHL players played on Icy Dicey Crisis during Season 1:

For winning first place, each team member gets to select two Steam games out of a prize pool worth about $150. I asked Dojomojomofo what his experience was like in the Bronze Group and if there is anything in particular he wanted to say about his team.

“We were really lucky all the way from Gold to Bronze to have well matched opponents!,” Dojomojomofo said. “The teammates who played were very dedicated. We practiced most nights during each round up to and during Bronze. While he wasn’t highly visible, Rice-A-Ronin was almost always at the ready to sub in as well and I have to thank RocketMa and Foryth for playing with us so regularly too. If the season were longer, they’d surely be pulled onto the team.

The RHL congratulates team Icy Dicey Crisis on their win in Season 1. To see them in action, check out the video below.

Ten Players Selected to Fill New Officials Role

The RHL commissioners have created a new role called Officials. Officials act as a relay between players and the Commission. They are charged with answering questions, pointing players in the right direction, moderating the Discord server, and acting as neutral league representatives as needed. Officials sit in on tournaments when commissioners cannot and they arbitrate disputes in the absence of a commissioner.

The RHL would like to congratulate the following eight players who have been chosen as officials.
