The Minecraft event will begin several weeks before the event. Details are outlined in the divisional sign-up thread in the Spirit Week section that can be found here:
**Event Sign Ups**
All sign-ups will be posted in the Spirit Week section with details on the events. A Co-Founder or higher in the division is responsible for posting the sign-ups. No other members should be posting the sign ups. The rosters can be changed up until the sign-ups close thirty minutes before the event begins.
All members who compete must be registered on the forums and/or documented on G14/Omega before 21 May 2018. Any member recruited into KSI and entered into the CMS after 21 May will not be eligible to compete in the games on the consoles. They will be eligible for the Forums Poll, Minecraft build-off, Donor FFA, and Social Media events.
There will be a Donor-only Free-For-All event on Sunday, June 24 at 2 p.m. EST. To be eligible, you must donate at least $5 to the Donation Drive through our PayPal, a Twitch Subscription to KSILive, or Bit Donations in the stream between now and June 20, 2018 -- the start of Spirit Week.
The Free-For-All will be a UNO tournament at https://play.unofreak.com/.
Those who play UNO will be eligible to get one (1) participation point per division, and winners of the event will be eligible for individual prizes.
Individual prizes must be redeemed by contacting KSI's CFO, KSI Ace 7. If a prize is not claimed by 1 August 2018, you will forfeit your right to them and they will be recycled for future use.
In total, more than $300 in prizes will be up for grabs between individual winners and the top-3 divisions at the end of the weekend.
As with all of our major events -- Spring Break, Spirit Week, and Fall Classic -- the final standings of the event will contribute to the Divisional Cup standings.
Each event will be graded as follows. The Forums Challenge Poll will open in the Spirit Week section of the forums on the first night.
For a division to get a participation point for the Challenge, they must garner 20 votes in the poll. For the rest of the events, they must have one team show up and compete. If they field two teams, they will not gain a second participation point.
1st = +3 points
2nd = +2 points
3rd = +1 point
Participate = 1 point
If you don't know, we have a Facebook and Twitter!
Divisional activity for Spirit Week will be judged by KSI's Board of Directors and Social Media curators. The official hashtags for Spirit Week are #KSI and #SpiritWeek. Using those hashtags and denoting your division in your posts will make it easier for us to see and rebroadcast your posts.
Divisions are eligible for additional points as a result of their social media activity, including posting, new followers, new likes, and posts showing KSI Spirit.
Thank you for reading, and we hope to see you all at Spirit Week 2018!
