Quidstock, the three day festival of peace, love, and quidditch, is getting closer! Many players have been asking over the last couple months about whether or not the Quidstock Organizing Team is going to allow mercenary teams to play in the tournament. After some debate we have decided to allow mercenary teams to play in this incredible tournament!
The tournament will be split up into two divisions:
Division 1: All Official Member Teams
Division 2: All Non-Official Member Teams including all Mercenary Teams
In Division 1 play, all official member teams will play each other in ranked matches, so that teams will be able to complete all but one of their mandatory ranked games for the season*.
In Division 2 play, all Non-Official Member Teams and all Mercenary Teams will play in unofficial games.
There are two different ways for players to put themselves on mercenary teams. The first is for players to get together and submit themselves as a full team by going to this page and filling out this form:
The second way is for players to submit themselves as individuals, and the Quidstock Gameplay department will create fair teams based on the submissions. That form can be found here.
We also ask that EVERY player, regardless of what kind of team they are playing on fill out this commitment form so that the IQA can ensure that this event can be successful.
Deadlines are coming up so make sure you sign up as soon as possible!
If you have any questions or want to volunteer, email quidstock@
*Note: Teams must have 5 ranked matches at two different times or events, so no team will be able to fulfill the entire season requirement at Quidstock.
