PixelGum Trials: Splatoon 2 Rules

Share:

The PixelGum Trials are all about teamwork, fun and participation. The judges look at how Pixels work well together, how they respond to winning, how they encourage their team after a loss, and how they encourage the chat to have fun. Focus on helping your teammates and showing the world what it means to be a Pixel – whether you win or lose!

The Trials

  1. You do not have to be involved in every single trial round, but the more you can be in, the more likely you will get points, the more likely you will be the overall winner
    • Where we have more than eight contestants, we will put a random Pixel on spectate
    • We will try to ensure no Pixel is on spectate more than once in the trial but it may not be possible, in which case we will randomly select the next spectator
  2. We will be always selecting randomised teams to keep things fair
  3. Points are awarded for achieving different things (see trials details below)
  4. During each trial you MUST select the set type of weapon for that round
    • Failure to do so will mean you cannot qualify for any points in that round
    • Repeated failure to select the correct type of weapon will result in being disqualified
  5. In the case of a draw, a tie breaker round will be announced
  6. Winners will be awarded the PixelGum Trials Trophy (virtual) and added to the PixelGum Trials Leaderboard PLUS turned into a Chibi 3D model to be added to the PixelGum Family

  8. All judges decisions will be final and not open to appeal
  9. Any Pixels who breaks the traditional PixelGum family rules (see the Discord chat) will be timed out and/or banned based on the level of their offence. This includes but is not limited to:
    • Flaming other Pixels in chat
