Challonge DDOS and Recovery

He Mockit Headz,

As some of you may know, challonge was allegedly ddos’d and their CDN Incapsula could not stand the DDOS. This caused the Mockit Bracket for the 3v3 tournament on Saturday March 19th to adapt. We at Mockit are quick on our feet, and the awesome team sprang into action. We threw up the whiteboard and started to do it manually.

We put snapshots in our discord server and honestly, our AMAZING community was super supportive. The Mockit Team behind the scenes was doing manual brackets and it went incredibly well.

Challonge recovered about 25 minutes later and the bracket was quickly updated.  Thanks to everyone who was patient with us and a huge shout out to the Mockit Team for being so amazingly on point to aid in manual pencil whipping during the outtage.

Thanks for being awesome folks.

Our Goal At Mockit || Tell us what you think!

Hey folks,

Luckey here. Figured I would fill everyone in on our goal at Mockit.

In general, we love the community we have built. Many folks love what we do, and it is because of YOU that we do this. Everyone at Mockit all has the same mentality of, “Give the people what they want!” Basically, we feel people want a few things. In order of importance:

  1. A great community to play with. This is why we have our discord server. It seems many people love it. We are one of the top 20 discord servers in the world for overall people, and during tournaments we are generally #1 in the world for activity. This is amazing. Check out this chart from one of the guys who helps make Mockit happen, Matt.

  2. They want to also see pros play on a regular basis. We do this by offering amazing prize pools and competitive game play with a stage for all to watch, i.e. our Twitch Stream. 
  3. Dank Memes. Kappa

We will have a few more posts coming out to show what we can do regarding the summer. Exciting times here at Mockit!

Tournament Rule Enforcement

Today we re ran a tournament match between teams “I’m Black” and “Slow Clap”. The match started without the stream being ready. It is explicitly spelled out in our rules that all semi finals and finals MUST wait for our streaming team to provide the lobby and be on stream. They were asked to replay their match. A few streamers had a few choice words to say about the Mockit Decision but it is EXPLICITLY spelled out in our rules that everyone gets a copy of upon tournament registration. Mockit will continue to enforce its rules. As Mockit grows, rules will aid in keeping order in larger and larger tournaments. We appreciate the cooperation given by both teams. Screenshots below for rule evidence.

Furthermore, the team captains were messaged as soon as we knew that the teams were playing without being streamed. Not all members were messaged but members of both teams were. Lack of inter-team communication is an issue and in the future we will be messaging ALL parties of each team.

My teammates and I are excited to join the Mockit community. They have some incredibly exciting things in the pipeline and we are happy to join ranks with Low5ive, Rizzo, and Insolences. I’m very happy about this and hope we will work together for a long time!

We could not be happier with both of our teams and the community we have built. At Mockit we are not only about winning, but also about bolstering a community where folks of all creeds can come and just have fun playing the game.

Low5ive’s Editing Contest!

Hey guys! I’m Low5ive.

You might know me from my own stream on Twitch; my previous title as “that guy on the homepage;” or from the occasional appearances in Rocket Royale, RLCPL, or Mock-it tournaments. Now, I play Rocket League for Mock-it eSports alongside Rizzo and Insolences.


 

The Low Down:

I’ve been sitting on some Rocket League replays waiting for that special someone to come along and edit, but I’ve decided to release them in a public contest!  There are 51 clips in total that date all the way back to October, so not all of them are A+ material.  It’s a lot to go through and you might consider a fair number of them to be not so great, but I want to leave a wide selection so that the videos you all put together have plenty of variety.  I’d recommend going through them in order of newest to oldest (I’ll attach an appropriately sorted image below).

What’s in it for you?

The best video, judged by myself and a few others, will receive $100USD and the opportunity to edit a “teamtage” for our team, Mock-it eSports.  I’ll also feature the winning video on my YouTube channel and hype you up on Twitch.

The next two runner-ups will also have the chance to edit the “teamtage.”

  • 1st: $100USD, exposure, “teamtage” entry
  • 2nd: Teamtage entry
  • 3rd: Teamtage entry

Teamtage?!

The three best submissions for the “Low5ive” video will have the opportunity to piece together a video for Mock-it including Rizzo, Insolences, and myself.  These clips are already in order and they’re WAY cooler.

The best video from this selection will receive another $100USD and the chance to join the Mock-it Creative Team as a paid part-time position.

  • Winner: $100USD and a chance for a paid part-time job as a Creative Team member.

 

I’ve set the end date for “Phase 1” at March 24th. There is no video length requirement. Email your submissions to low5montage@gmail.com. I’m stoked to see what you guys come up with.

 

Spread the word!
