Gamemodes

Bridge

Teams of 2 spawn on opposite sides of a long narrow bridge. Fight and build past your opponent, and jump into the scorebox to score — first team to 5 points wins!

FinalUHC

FinalUHC duels simulate the last few minutes of the popular UHC gamemode. Equipped with enchant diamond gear, a fishing rod, blocks, buckets, and some golden apples, you and your friend fight two opponents to be the last left standing.

Iron

Iron is a simple, pure PvP ladder. Players will be equipped with iron armor, iron swords, bows, and a golden apple. Last team standing wins!

Schedule

Registration Opens Immediately
Qualifiers: November 13th & 14th at 11:00 – 14:30 EST | 17:00 – 20:30 CET
Invitationals: November 20th & 21st at 8:00 EST | 14:00 CET

During qualifiers, you can show up late and still qualify. If you make it to invitationals, you may be required to play at the start time to compete.

Qualifiers

The weekend of November 13th & 14th at 11:00 – 14:30 EST | 17:00 – 20:30 CET

Matches will start throughout qualifiers between teams with scores who are available. Each team can play up to 12 best of 3 matches, and the teams with the most points will move on to invitationals. There will be more than 12 opportunities to play a match, so it is okay if you miss some.

The number of teams advancing to the invitationals will depend on how many teams play in the qualifiers. With a hard cap of 64 teams, the number of teams advancing will be calculated by taking the largest power of 2 strictly less than a third the total number of teams. For instance, if 154 total teams register we will take the top 32 teams for the invitational.*

*Match time limits, amount of rounds, and invitational size are subject to change

Invitationals

The weekend of November 20th & 21st at 8:00 EST | 14:00 CET

The best teams play in a double elimination until one team remains, the winner of VCA Obsidian Series: Finale. Specific timing and round scheduling will be released after qualifiers alongside the list of teams advancing.
