What minigames will be featured in this Minecraft Championship?
As always, there are eight different minigames for participants to choose from in the Decision Dome. When the time comes, participants will gather in the dome and throw chickens into the designated area for their desired minigame.
There are various power-ups that improve or shatter chances of a particular minigame being chosen. These will be put into effect after the first minigame is decided and played.
The eight minigames chosen for this tournament have featured in past championships, but the Noxcrew has promised some "special changes" to each of these minigames.
The eight minigame choices are: "Sky Battle," "Battle Box," "TGTTOSAWAF," "Parkour Tag," "Survival Games," "Build Mart," "Ace Race," and, "Hole In The Wall."
