Qblitz is excited to announce its second
high school tournament, Qblitz Season Finale 1, to take place
between Monday May 20 and Friday May 24
. The tournament will take place online on the Qblitz website.
WHAT IS QBLITZ?
The Qblitz website uses an automated moderator to read questions to players, and then tracks where they buzzed. Those buzz points are used to compare players against each other, allowing matches to be constructed. You can see this automated moderator in action by playing our sample packet.
You can also watch the championship match of our last
three events here.
Qblitz Season Finale 1 is open to individual players in high school or below.
Over the 5 days, participants will play 5 rounds of 20 tossups. The format is a shootout. For each round, players are assigned to a small pool. Once everyone has played their questions for that day, we build the matches within the pool, and the top performers in each pool move up the tournament ladder. The following round, players will be assigned to a new pool with others on their rung. At the end, the winner of the top pool is the champion.
Players will play one round
of 20 tossups. Once everyone is done, we'll "run" a full round-robin. The top performer will be crowned champion.
The questions for the competition are being written in-house.
Registration is currently open, and will continue to be until Monday, May 13. To register, you'll need to be logged into your Qblitz account.
Because Qblitz is more fun with a friend, for this tournament, anyone who pays the full registration fee can register a teammate for free. To take advantage of this offer, email us at [email protected] once you've registered and let us know who you're choosing to play with. (That teammate will need a Qblitz account before being officially registered.)
This tournament is free to play
, but you'll need to register to claim your spot.
If you have questions, please post them here, or PM me, or email Qblitz ([email protected]
We hope to see you all there!
