According to the UMG Gaming website, modes include Hunger Games (SG4), Spleef, Dropper, TNT Run, Run From Lava, Battle Arena, Parkour Race, Bingo, and will be rounded off with a final round in Hunger Games (Duckbill City).
Of course, there are a set of rules in place to keep everybody on the straight and narrow, and it's very useful for viewers to know these rules before jumping in to watch the events unfold.
(Placement score is based on your teams placement)
- Eliminations: +10 Score
- Victory: +30 Score
- Top 2 Teams: +20 Score
- Top 3 Teams: +10 Score
- Surviving: +2 Score (Whenever a team is eliminated all other remaining teams earn +2 Score)
Note: Score for Placements, Surviving and Victory Royales is split between the teammates evenly if both are alive, otherwise those scores are awarded to the surviving teammate. (This will help reflect individual contribution to the team score. Who's carrying who out here?!)
1. Cheating of any kind in Minecraft Monday is strictly prohibited and will result in a permanent ban.
- No cross-teaming. Your duo partner is your ONLY teammate.
- No "feeding" to help another team (purposely allowing another player to eliminate you earning them extra score)
- No modes or resource packs that grant unfair advantages.
- Acceptable mods: Optifine, Gamma Boost (so your viewers can see in dark places), and Lowfire.
- Default Textures and Resource Pack.
- Keep things simple and barebones.
2. Trash-talk is allowed, however, you must still conduct yourself respectfully.
3. Clout chase. Don't be a sore loser and HAVE FUN!
