Since the latest edition of the Minecraft Championship fell on its anniversary, a celebratory theme was arranged on the server, including confetti, hats, and balloons, making for an extravagant event.
The Minecraft Championship 27 has been arguably one of the most star-studded events, with the likes of Ludwig, Valkyrae, Disguised Toast, and Sykkuno (among others) partaking in the event.
As usual, 10 teams competed against each other for the MCC Coin. Teams comprised of players who have had prior experience with the competition as well as newcomers.
For those unaware, the MCC includes mini-games that test the various skill sets of the competing players, who put skills such as parkour, PvP, building, etc., to the test. The winner is decided through a finale between the top two teams with the most MCC Coins.
Going into the final, Purple Pandas and Cyan Coyotes had accumulated 20,261 and 17,440 coins, respectively. The Red Rabbits, the 3rd placed team, narrowly missed out on the opportunity to reach the finale, as they fell short by a mere 80 coins.
