The Bell Tree World Championship 2024: Closing Ceremony

Do I see it wrong or is the order of the Teams also the order how they came out in the end? :LOL:
Congratulations to everyone and thank you to my fellow Squirtles for carrying me. 🤗
Seems like Pokémon-themed teams like to win!!

Also congratulations @digimon for scoring such a high score 🥳😱
 
Congrats! 🎊I just joined the forum this year and hadn't participated in a gaming event quite like this before! I had lots of fun and it was exciting being a part of team Yoshi. Everyone put in their best efforts so everyone is a winner imo. I'm impressed at the level of organization from the staff for this event, and hope they get some well deserved rest.
 
Congratulations to the Squirtle Squad, and well done to every team (especially my poyo puffs with our v nice score)!!! You all did wonderfully, and I hope you've had fun these past 2 weeks -- and I hope you get some well-deserved rest!

I hope you all had fun, no matter how much or how little you might have participated (and be that through playing, spectating, or chatting on Discord or the forums)!

Despite the amount of time and sleep I may have sacrificed, I would definitely do it all again, and I'll miss playing with you guys and chatting and forcing you into my strange chaotic lobbies ilu 9x imposter speed hide and seek.

I think I've said it many times already, but I'm so so happy that people enjoyed the events, especially ACNH Hide and Seek! I was super anxious about it and worried that people might not be interested, especially in hosting on their islands 😭 But people seemed to like it quite a lot, and now we're just sad we couldn't get to every island!!
Yet, anyways. I've mentioned it, but I'm working on something for ACNH Hide and Seek sessions! I want to keep hosting them, even if it might just be once or twice a month.

With that said... I'll be going to catch up on work and life stuff that I've put off! Like sleep!! 😅

i'm not sure but i think it might have been Mistreil who kept the discord event calendar updated and i could not have survived with out that LOOOL so thank you for doing so!
Many of the sessions were added by me, yes! But also the other staff added a lot too. I'm glad it was helpful!!

Congrats to the Squirtle Squad on your well earned victory, as well as all the MVPs of each team and tournament winners! A big thank you to the staff for working so hard for this fun event and thank you to my fellow Ha-Cha's for being such a fun and supportive team! :)
 
Congrats all around, good times had by all. As always, huge thanks to the staff for throwing the party. Much love. Big thanks to @Mick and @Chris for being such chill captains. Thanks to @DaCoSim for multiple layers of organization. And a general thanks to the Ha-Chas just for being great teammates.

On a side note, this was the very first Bell Tree team event where I didn’t have @Mairmalade as a captain, and I did miss her. I hope she’s well and off having some fun 😁
 
Thanks everyone for the great event!!! This was my first TBTWC and hopefully not my last! I greatly enjoyed shiny hunting, playing mario kart, and fishing for golden eggs with all my new friends!! Thanks a lot to @skarmoury, @Dunquixote, @Aquilla, @Mokuren and of course my partner @Chibi.Hoshi for making it as special as it was, love you all!! ❤️

Unfortunately there were a few things that confused me, mainly the pokemon tournament. I understand with the time constraints it had to be done the way it did but I have 2 main issues with how it was run:
- First of all, elimination formats are not preferable when it comes to pokemon competitions. Due to the time sink that competitive pokemon team building can be, an elimination bracket can create a stressful and heated environment. Imagine being someone who worked tirelessly over the 2 days to research a team, breed/catch the pokemon, train them, grind pokemon to get the tms and then finally grinding the money for items/nature mints/bottle caps. An elimination format takes all that work required and can completely dismiss it if you're unlucky enough in round 1 placements
- That ties into my second issue, 2 days is not an appropriate amount of time to do all of those steps I listed above. Making a competitive pokemon team requires a lot of work and if you want to win you have to follow through with all of those steps. The winner of the tournament spent a week prior building a competitive team, and I know that isn't against the rules nor am I trying to invalidate their efforts, but if that's what is needed to win the tournament then it gives anyone who wanted to wait for the official rules a significant disadvantage. It'll create an environment where if someone wants to win, they have to assume the rules and start building a team the second the TBTWC announcement is made

I don't want to dampen the mood however, this was a great event, and the positives very much outweigh the negatives! I hope next time a pokemon tournament is created it allows for everyone to enjoy it and have fun! Congrats to all the MVP's and everyone who participated!!
 
Alas, 2024 TBTWC has come to a close. I already miss this event so much. I remember participating in the first edition of TBTWC and had extreme amounts of fun. This year is no different and I'd probably argue is even better than the last despite having to work around a busy schedule in my life. It's challenging to choose which aspect of the event is my favourite as there was fun anywhere I took part. 🥺 It ain't perfect for sure as I've seen some feedback from a few users on this thread.

I want to say a huge congratulations to us fellow Squirtles for sticking to the end! You guys are awesome whether you participated in friendlies, competitives, tournaments, cheered on for our team, and/or spectated sessions. And a huge shout out to @~Kilza~ for motivating us daily on discord, @Pyoopi for finding everyone in hide and seek regardless of which team, @S.J. and @MrBox for keeping track of important deadlines and sessions, @VillageDweller and @Flyffel for taking the top two spots in the Pokémon tournament, @BungoTheElf for a discord emote for our team, @lieryl for our team flag, @Xara with her passionate vibes and endless love for Moo Moo Meadows from Mario Kart, and @Mokuren for achieving MVP Squirtle Squad status!

I know we sometimes get caught up in the competitive aspect of the event, but regardless whether you're a Squirtle, a Yoshi Islander, a Ha-Cha, or a Poyo Puff, playing together and having fun is what matters to me the most. I think we achieved that no doubt while also throwing some friendly banter over on discord chat (I'm still bewildered by the terms "pleek" and "joever" 🤣). @digimon, I still can't get over how amusing you keep using that one emote on there throughout TBTWC. I need to save a pic of it so I can look back and laugh lol.

I know I'm on Squirtle Squad, but I want to drop down this video again to sign off 2024 TBTWC going back to my roots of being on team Blue's Clues three years ago. Thank you staff and every single one of you that participated in this event to make it very, very memorable. 💙 🐾

Please, everyone... Get some sleep. 😅

trying to not be sad that it's joever, but instead happy that we pleeked

^this just fits every single scenario i could ever come across during tbtwc/life in general tbh
 
Master Ball Raffle Winners

For every 50 points earned during the event, you received one raffle ticket for our Master Ball collectible raffle. This means the highest point-earners had a better chance to win, but the decision was ultimately left to the will of the RNG gods. Fortunately, we're giving out a total of 12 Master Balls, so hopefully that helps increase your luck a bit!

Without further ado, let's see who the lucky twelve winners are!

@Equity
@Rosch
@Zane
@nerfeddude
@LambdaDelta
@azurill
@VillageDweller
@Jhine7
@shellbell
@amemome
@Snowesque
@Giddy

Congrats!

Please note than any badgering, harassment, or cold messaging of the winners will not be tolerated and may result in a silent suspension from future raffles or events. Wait until the winners express some level of interest in selling before contacting them.
