The first leg is over! Now onto the playoffs!

Each six teams will advance to this years playoffs, as they will battle it out to see who comes out on top. The first and second seeded teams, South Korea and Mexico, both have achieved a bye from the quarter finals, and automatically advance onto the semifinals. Games will begin this Friday at 6:30 PM EDT with Nigeria and Germany, and then continue that night with France v Iceland. May the best team win!

Draft went very well despite an early crash. We were able to get all 60+ players back on the server easily along with the 30+ watching the stream. If you want to watch or rewatch the VOD, here is a link: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/279926211 (thanks to Nobot for streaming, Kyro and quippy for commentating the event, and Ragref for additional help)

We will make a post soon and also edit the post directly under OP with the full list of teams!

We also want each team to be prepared for the cup, so teams will get a little bit of a period to practice this week. Games will be scheduled in the future after that.

Thanks again for such a successful draft everyone!

The draft is almost here! We encourage everyone to join us tomorrow on the server for the festivities. The server will open at 6:30 PM EDT to premier our brand new World Cup 2018 Build, and then at 8:00 PM EDT we will all convene on the beach for the first ever BCS Draft, where each captain will select their teams to fight over the coveted trophy.

For the players: while attendance isnít necessary (you may be drafted whether you are on the server or not), we highly encourage everyone to be present. Not only will it be fun to hear your name called in real time, but you will also get to go up to the stage and be congratulated personally. We look forward to seeing everyone, players and spectators alike, on the server to celebrate!

whoops

I guess a double post to say that Sign Ups for captains have now closed. (you can still sign up to be a player, even after the draft)
Captains will now be decided and our next exciting event will be held soon: the draft!

Bump to remind everyone that today marks the final day of signups! Even if you are new, there is still enough time to sign up and practice before the draft.

SIGN UP NOW

Presented by



Before signing up, please take the time to read the BCS's rulebook for this tournament, as well as the BCS Sportsmanship Guidelines, especially if you are a new player who has taken an interest in the sport, it is imperative you read both documents, graciously written by WALDO.




Founded by WALDO, Chill, 2many, and Tumbleweed in the summer of 2017, BCS was created in order to further the reach of sports in the Blockland community. Though currently dedicated to hosting our soccer server for the World Cup, we enjoy hosting a plethora of different sports on the server, and we always enjoy new players coming in to experience the wide world of Blockland sports.
 
As well as hosting a server for the community, BCS also owns a discord server as an outlet for all of our community members to talk to each other. We have different rooms for real-life sports discussions, we often broadcast major sports events or even sometimes movies on our Rabb.it room, and the discord is generally where we organize our games and events, so if you want to be at all involved in BCS, we highly recommend you join our discord!
 
JOIN THE DISCORD HERE




The Blockland Community of Sports is excited to take over the mantle that GBFL (and other affiliates) had for the previous 4 years of tournament host. Ever since the collapse of GBFL, we have been eagerly working to make this Cup the best one yet. So, for this cup, we are going back to the roots of the tournament and reinstating the World Cup, just as it was held in its inaugural year in 2014.

However, unlike the previous years, we didnít want to feel confined by the constraints of the current yearís real life tournament, so we decided to part ways with the Russian theme of this yearís World Cup, and move our tournament to a more tropical, beached location. So we are going coastal with this yearís theme! This build, tirelessly built by 2many and Chill and their compatriots, features many topical treasures that fit with the incoming summerís vibe.



The way the tournament is formatted, (depending on the number of teams), the tournament will consist of two parts: a regular season, and a playoff bracket. Each team will play each other at least once (again, depending on the quantity of teams), and their record will determine the seeding for the playoffs. The playoff will then be seeded accordingly, and the final team winning will be declared the victor.





Additionally, BCS is overhauling the team building system put in place by the GBFL at the beginning of last year. Instead of granting every player biased and unpopular ďranks,Ē we arenít insinuating anything about the skill level of our players (you are all winners in our eyes). So now, we want to introduce a brand new team building system - The Draft.

Members of the community will be able to sign up to be a captain or a player, and upon approval of the BCS Admins, the community will then be able to vote on who they want to be captains. Those captains will then be tasked with scouting and compiling their personalized draft list, culminating in our grand draft day on June 29th, where everyone can join us on our Blockland server and in professional league style, watch as your favorite players get called up to the stage to compete in this yearís tournament.



We also know that as fun as it is playing soccer for soccerís sake, the game could always use a little more. So, along the lines of our 2017 Winter Cup we are creating a prize pool for this years tournament. The dev team has generously laid down a base prize pool of $120, but thatís not all; with your help, the prize pool could grow even bigger by donating. Not only will you increase the prize pool, but you will also get some cool perks for our server, including things like a custom title, VIP access to the World Cup, and much more.

In terms of allocation, 80% of the prize pool will be guaranteed to the winning team. Regardless of position, authority, and stats, each player will get the same amount. But doesnít that leave some of the money undistributed? Yes, it does. At the end of the season, after all the stats have been compiled, a ceremony will be held to celebrate not only the winner of the tournament but also the individual achievements of the players. During the ceremony, four individuals, Goalie of the Year, Defender of the Year, Offender of the Year, and Rookie of the Year, will all be celebrated. Additionally, the remaining 20% of the prize pool will be split among these four players,

Download this to be able to view all of the jerseys for this summer's teams! Coming soon.

We are also excited to announce a fantastic addition to the jerseys - Custom Jersey Numbers! Players can now choose a specific number they want on their back and it will be shown for all to see!

BCS is also happy to introduce some fun additions to our server: new titles and custom jets! There are shops located all over the build where you can find different titles and colored/emitter jets!

We have introduced trading cards as a fun way to spend time while hanging out on the server. Players will receive 1 free pack a day, but they can buy additional packs of cards using points earned in scrimmages or from minigames. These cards feature players from each of the previous tournaments along with special lots of feature cards.

Players can then go around trading the cards they get with each other in an effort to complete teams and collect them all! If you collect all the players from one team in a certain cup, you will be awarded that team's special card, and if you collect each team card from a certain cup, you will get the very rare cup card.
