|Announcing... the Kapala World Cup! Team USA vs. Team World|
|Posted by hb on October 22nd, 2018 @11:19PM|
The MossRanking Team are excited to announce a new tournament, the Kapala World Cup. What's different about this one is, it will be a contest between two sides: Team USA and Team World.
The Kapala World Cup is a three-day event, starting Saturday, November 24, and will see a series of around 20 races (of varying categories). In each race, at least one Team USA representative will face off against at least one Team World representative. We have some exciting categories in the works, including potential 2v2 and 4v4 races.
Players of all abilities can sign up! It doesn't matter how experienced you are; organisers will do their best to ensure you will be put in races with suitable opponents and suitable categories. It's also worth bearing in mind that because this is a team event, you are not required to be available on all three days if you are not available for them (November 24, November 25, December 1).
We are also planning on having commentator pairings which always comprise of one from USA and one from World.
If you wish to sign up as a participant, here's the form! The deadline for sign-ups is Thursday, November 1 at 23:59 GMT. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with hb#3495 via Discord direct message (here's also the link to the Spelunky Discord server).
Who will come out on top, Team USA or Team World? Find out when it all begins next month...

|2018 AS+O Tourney Grand Finals, Tomorrow @ Noon Eastern!|
|Posted by ix on October 20th, 2018 @08:21PM|
Hi all --
The Spelunky community has competed throughout September (qualifiers) and October (a double-elimination tournament), and we are nearing an exciting conclusion! The final rounds of the 2018 All Shortcuts + Olmec Spelunky Tournament will be streamed live on Twitch on the MossRanking channel tomorrow (Sunday, October 21) at Noon - 4 pm Eastern Time. We'll have live commentary from Kinnijup, TicTacFoe, and Jake. ix (me), will also join the broadcast team once I'm eliminated.
Here's the bracket (link to live version, where you can also make predictions):
So, how did we get here?
In the upper bracket, we have d_tea and Spef, currently the #2 and #3 Spelunkers in the world according to the MossRanking formula. Both have faced very stiff competition. Spef kept himself in the upper bracket by defeating MikeIsMyIke, TNF, and Mazerak, while d_tea got here by dropping denis, chocolatecake, and krille to the lower bracket.
In the lower bracket, we have ix, krille, Mazerak, and chocolatecake. ix made it to this point by beating pojo in the preliminary round, followed by a win over Kirby. He lost to Mazerak in the upper bracket, but then eliminated meowmixmix and TNF in the lower bracket. krille, the 2017 AS+O tournament defending champion, opened the 2018 tournament with wins over GruntingCrunchy and Jake before losing to d_tea in the upper bracket semifinals. Despite holding the #1-overall seed entering the tournament, Mazerak had to face curticus, one of the pre-tournament favorites, in the opening round. He survived that match-up, then knocked ix to the lower bracket, before losing in the upper bracket semifinals to Spef. Finally, chocolatecake advanced from the preliminary round with a win over TicTacFoe, next beat Vlad, before being sent to the lower bracket by d_tea. Chocolatecake recovered with wins over Kirby and TTF.
So that's where the bracket stands. Tomorrow, we'll crown a 2018 tournament champion. Hope to see a ton of people there!
P.S. - As a reminder, the rules of AS+O are the following: Starting from a blank save file, the runner has to start from the tutorial and unlock all the Tunnel Man shortcuts, then complete the game by defeating Olmec and exiting. This category follows Real Time Attack (RTA) rules: the timer begins when the runner selects a character and stops when the spelunker reappears in the transition screen after exiting Olmec's lair. This run has been featured at AGDQ 2018 by Kinnijup and AGDQ 2016 by BumCommando & Kinnijup, and will soon appear at GDQx at TwitchCon 2018 (Saturday, October 27 @ around 11 AM Eastern) by meowmixmix!
