Motivations

Innovate and always find new ideas on new ways to help, unite and evolve in a fraternal atmosphere appreciated by all players.

Components

Teams

There will be 2 types of teams: teams composed of one person and teams composed of 4 to 6 people (6 recommended, to compensate eventual absences).

Disciplines

The event will focus on 3 main disciplines: construction, datapacks and resource-packs. In addition to this, the creation of maps (part 1) will be added, involving the three disciplines and PvP / Survival to add a little spice to the event.

Objectives

Participants

Competitors

Competitors will compete in several parts:

  • First part: Creating a map in one week, in parallel with parts 2 and 3. This map must be playable and must involve all disciplines. A theme as well as one or more constraints will be imposed.
  • Second part: A tournament in each of the different categories opposing the teams. One tournament for solo teams and one tournament for teams from 4 to 6 players.
  • Third part: A second tournament, not to evaluate the ability to create, but the ability to survive and to fight against other teams! Thus, several competitions will be spread over maps such as Battle Royal and Bed Wars.

Each of the matches of the second and third parts will be divided into 2 to 3 rounds, the winning team will be defined by a BO3.

Streamers

All day long, streamers will be invited to present various programs such as:

  • Tutorial/Answers to questions about creating resource-packs, builds or datapacks
  • Matches between teams made up of spectators and/or participating teams if they wish to train
  • Presentation of associations and sponsors

Spectators

Public

  • The public will have the ability to rate each achievement out of 10. Then, for a given team and category, we will average the scores to evaluate the best team in that category.
  • The public will be able to bet (real money) on the teams they want. This money will be donated to charity.

Donors

  • People who have donated at least 1€ will have, during the event, access to private servers hosting visit maps, mini game maps and build maps (with a limited number of players).
  • People who bet on one of the winning teams will have a chance to win rewards (ranging from a simple T-shirt to more expensive gifts such as consoles depending on the winnings generated). The more money the person puts into the team, the more chances they will have to win rewards if that team wins (limit to $5, which multiplies their chance by 5. Beyond that, the money is considered a pure donation).

Predecessor

The Creative Olympics event doesn’t come out of nowhere. It succeeds the formerly known MineAthon. Here is a short nostalgic video of what the MineAthon managed to accomplish before its fall. We will do our best to pick up the torch and try to go even further!
