Welcome to The Bell Tree World Championship 2024! During this two-week gaming spectacular, that runs from Saturday May 18th 2024 to Sunday June 2nd 2024, you will be divided into four teams where you will work together to earn points for the chance to win exciting forum perks, forum bells, and new collectibles! You will earn points through participating and spectating in game sessions, creating artwork or poems in support of your team, and sporting an avatar and signature in your team colours.




Games 🎮


Let's start with the most important aspect: the games! We are hosting friendly and competitive matches across many exciting online multiplayer Nintendo Switch games: Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Party Superstars, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Splatoon 3, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Super Mario Bros. Wonder. You will find all of the game threads in the Games Lobby.

In addition to these titles, we will also be running sessions of Among Us and Jackbox Games.

What is the difference between friendly and competitive sessions?
  • In a friendly session you will only receive points for participating. The person who comes in first place will receive the same number of points as the person who comes in last place. Game hosts will not be keeping score.
  • In a competitive session, you will receive points based on your performance on top of participation points. The person who comes in first place will receive more points than the person who comes in last place. However, everyone who participates will still walk away with something. Game hosts will be keeping score in competitive sessions.

Team Assignments 🎮


If you opted-in to this event before May 18th 2024 you will have already been randomly assigned to one of four teams. Your team assignment will be listed in the postbit to the left of your post on desktop and on top of your post on mobile. Please note that it can take up to an hour after logging in for your team assignment to be displayed.

If you have not yet opted in to this event that's no issue, you can still do so! To sign-up to participate in The Bell Tree World Championship please go to your Preferences and set the TBT World Championship field to "Opted In" and then press Save. All accounts that have opted-in will periodically be assigned to a team.

Please note that if you are not yet assigned to a team then you cannot sign-up to any of the gaming sessions. Please do not make placeholder posts; game hosts will ignore these.


Team Structure 🎮

For the next two weeks, consider your team your TBT family. You might not get along with everyone on your team, but you're in this together. Each team has their own board where they will be able to communicate with their fellow teammates and their team captains:

Each team is led by two captains. Team 1 will be lead by @~Kilza~ and @Pyoopi, Team 2 will be supported by @Justin and @LaBelleFleur, Team 3 will be captained by @Chris and @Mick, and Team 4 will be piloted by @LadyDestani and @Mistreil. Your team captains are your point of contact for this event. They will answer your questions and be your biggest cheerleaders.

N.B. Please note that if your team banner is not currently displayed on your profile you will not have access to your team board yet. Check back in an hour!

How Will Points Be Distributed?
  1. Participating in Game Events: You will be able to claim your points by posting evidence of your participation in the Games Lobby Point Submissions board. Points will then be distributed by one of the game hosts. When submitting your thread, please take care when selecting the correct Team and Game Event.
  2. Spectating in Game Events: Your participation in our Discord server will be recorded by RIBBOT. Game hosts will export this list of spectator activity and forward it to Jeremy, who will then distribute the points. As this is a one-man operation please do not report any missing spectator points for at least 48hrs after the session.
  3. Team Events: For events that take place in your individual team boards, the points will be distributed by your team captain.

Scoreboard 🎮

In order to track your team's progress you can check out the scoreboard displayed at the top of the board. This will be updated automatically as game hosts and team captains distribute points.

i hate to immediately sound unappreciative, because i know this event is a big undertaking for staff and scheduling is hard because of real life commitments, but i really hope more sessions are actually potentially added for MK8 because i was really looking forward to competing in that, and it's basically the only game i have, but all the current times (bar mistreil's one friendly session) are completely unfriendly for europeans rip ><

I am sure more will be added. Smash only has 3 sessions so far. 1 on Sunday and 2 early Monday. I am sure a lot of people will be at school or work for that one.

Yes, there will be more sessions added, please don't worry about it! The sessions for MK8D and other games are still being figured out by the respective hosts and will be posted when they're made available! We will be sure to include some Euro-friendly times within them.

thank you for the reassurance !! i know it did say more times may be added, i just wasn't sure of the likelihood 😅 would hate to miss out on the chance to run my MK8 reputation into the ground asdfgjkfgh, but it's good to know there will be some sessions more suitable for my timezone !!
 
Okay, never mind—I’m so glad I already have the invader/goomba/pinky set, because I’m traveling for half this event and I honestly will be impressed if I manage to pull out 50 points for my team. But I HAVE to, because that chomp call collectible!!!!!!! I am obsessed. If I can somehow earn additional arcade tokens, the smash ball and Tera orb are gorgeous as well.

I'm the only game host based in Europe and I just haven't had the time to plan my schedule yet. Europe won't be unrepresented. :)
 
ooh v cute backdrops! also really loving the chomp ball design 😭😭 it's so cute.

I'll be coasting a bit this first week but hopefully will be able to full out participate during week 2!
