Introduction
Hello and welcome back to another edition of Gamemode Spotlight!

For those of you who are not familiar with the event, the Gamemode Spotlight is a monthly event used to showcase new and/or underplayed gamemodes. Throughout the duration of the event we will host weekly sessions that anyone can partake in. Come join our month-long tournament and show off your skills. There are even prizes for those who finish in the top three or participate in all sessions all month long.

This month's Gamemode Spotlight will be dedicated to Skywars!

Event Info
Throughout the month of September, we will be holding 4 sessions, each containing 2 rounds of Skywars. We will have staff members refereeing the games and keeping track of points. You can earn points by getting kills, finishing in the top three in each game and for participating in the session.

After each session we will add up the points that everyone earned and add them to the leaderboard. We will continue to do this until all four sessions have been played, giving us a final leaderboard with all the points combined from all the sessions. The top three on the final leaderboard will earn prizes! Sound fun?

To join, simply poke any staff members in the Gamemode Spotlight channel under the Events header on our TeamSpeak (ts.mcgamer.net) during the event time stated below.

Region
This event will be multiregional taking place in both US and EU. Weeks one and three will be on US, while weeks two and four will be on EU.

Points
Points can be earned in the following ways, and all points earned in each session will be added to the leaderboard. Check the events section of the forums after each week to see a thread with the updated leaderboard.
  • 40 points for finishing 1st place in a game.
  • 30 points for finishing 2nd place in a game.
  • 20 points for finishing 3rd place in a game.

By participating in this event, you must follow the following rules. Failure to do so may lead to removal from the event. These rules are subject to change, and the rules given before the start of each session on Teamspeak by the host will be taken as the official event rules that must be followed during that session.
  • All MCGamer Rules apply.
  • Use the same account at each session so we can combine your points.
  • No disguising.
  • Your Teamspeak name must be similar to your IGN.
  • You must have a forum account to claim prizes.
  • If your forum account name is not similar to your IGN you should alert a member of event staff if you are to score a lot of points. Prizes will be given out on the forums so we need to know who you are.

Since the Teamspeak was having issues and I was abroad, Week 2 was postponed to next week. I will update the thread soon with the new time and the current leaderboards for the first week!
Thank you for your patience and hopefully see you guys at the next session.
