The 29th installment of the MC Championship (MCC) just occurred and brought with it the beginning of the third season. But the Minecraft tournament appears to already be back again for another event with the announcement of MCC Scuffed.
MCC Scuffed was originally unveiled with the announcement that it would occur on April 1, but because this is also April Fools’ Day, most fans and players at first believed it was a joke. It also seemed a bit too soon after the occurrence of MCC 29, but events have occurred quite close to one another in the past.
Now that Noxcrew and Smajor have moved forward with official team announcements, MCC Scuffed seems to be a legit event that will be taking place after all.
The new event type appears to be a non-canon installment of the event, which means that the teams are less balanced and the focus of the event is instead the special theme. MCC Scuffed also won’t be the 30th event and will exist outside of the canonical scoring.
MCC Scuffed is set to take place at the very beginning of April, which means that there is a chance for another MCC event to occur later on in the month. There have occasionally been instances in the past where two MCC tournaments run within the same month, and if another does take place during April, it will likely be the canonical MCC 30. If not, MCC 30 will debut in May.
Because MCC Scuffed is a special version of the event, it will likely feature unexpected twists and turns outside of how the events usually run. The Scuffed title of the event might indicate that players have to participate in strange versions of the mini-games that they know and love. Possible changes that would be on brand with the scuffed theme could be having the players run maps backward, flipping maps around or upside down, and otherwise adding an overall cursed feel to the event that will allow both players and fans to experience the unexpected.
While the team announcements seem to solidify that MCC Scuffed is a real event that will be taking place on April 1, there is still a slight chance that the event is an elaborate April Fools’ prank. But this seems unlikely since the MCC team went through the effort of creating official artwork for both the MCC Scuffed logo and all of the teams participating.
MCC Scuffed teams
In keeping with the Scuffed theme, all of the team announcements are entirely out of order. The announcements usually follow the general colors of the rainbow and thus typically begin with the Red Rabbits and end with the Pink Parrots.
But this time, everything from the team announcement reveals to the hand-drawn icons of the players themselves is made to complement the disorderly theme of the event. Throughout some of the team announcements, certain players also have scuffed versions of their names but their actual names are also listed here.
- WaterBreathMan (FireBreathMan)
- MrGaming (Solidarity)
- Largishbeans (Smallishbeans)
- Grain (Grian)
- TheOnionSound (TheOrionSound)
- TapW (TapL)
- Peapeekay (Seapeekay)
- Rabnoo (Ranboo)
