    Blue has a ton of cool rares, and this gamemode lets you use them to their full potential!

    I call this gamemode, "Boots Format" because the only piece of armor that is allowed is boots! Chesplates, Leggings, and Helmets of any material are BANNED!

    You may still (and are encouraged to) use /Hat and an offhand item.

    Why? The biggest problem with many of the rares Applecraft (and Minecraft in general) has to offer is that they are improperly balanced with the offensive capability of the player- essentially, many fights at the most geared are stalemates because players can't damage each other. This problem is made even more annoying by Unbreakable armor.
    This gamemode removes the majority of the defensive power you can have and balances the offensive power of the player with the defensive power of rares! With armor out of the way, players are free and able to use practically any rare they like!

    There are 4-5 rounds if 1v1 fights and players are only eliminated if they lose 3 total matches. (Triple Elimination) After these rounds the 4 players with the best records advance to a top 4 bracket style tournament to determine the winner and overall order of the top 4.

    This tournament also features a "match to match ban mechanic" where before each fight, each player specifies a rare (not any item, just rares) they wish to ban the other player from using during that fight. If you have any specefic questions about this mechanic, please read the below paragraph.

    For example, you are paired up against your opponent, player X, before your fight starts you /msg the ref (usually me) the name if the rare type you want to ban them from using- player X does the same. After both players have told the ref their bans, they are announced. Player X cannot use any rares of the type you banned, even if they are renamed, modified, or they have multiple versions of that rare. You can use rares of that name however, if you ban spores boots from Player X (your opponent) you may still use spores boots, your opponent follows the same process. These bans are temporary and only last until the end of that fight. Before the fight begins, you have to wait for all effect(s) of the banned item to wear off. You are not required to disclose any of the names or strategies to your opponent before bans are declared, it is up to each player to pay attention to each round to figure out the most optimal bans.

    This is a really fun and interesting way to have the format balance itself and puts players who have one very strong item that carries them back on a level playing field.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to post them here or ask them to me in-game or on discord! I'm very open to feedback and I really want to make this work for as many people as possible!


    Sign up by placing your name in the hopper at /pw Albasant! I'll be holding these tournaments every day for the foreseeable future at 9 pm EST! Top players get prizes depending on turnout- the first place will always be something with at least 1 stack of value (but usually more), and the top 4 will also get prizes! Events take around 1-2 hours so be sure to clear your schedules!ll
    Everyone who participates gets a consolation prize, usually something around a dragon head worth of value.
