Ice Hockey: Summer Showdown 2022

Ice Hockey Sign up post 2022

The inaugural event took place at Rotherhythe Keep's Talla Olimpigaech arena (Which previously hosted Ice Hockey at the Third UltraVanilla Olympic Games on April 16th 2022.) on July 30th 2022.

This event debuted Ice Hockey as its own event.


Announced on April 20th 2022. The 2022 Summer Showdown was the first non-Olympic Ice Hockey event hosted in Rotherhythe Keep. This was boosted by the interest in introducing a mode for multiple players, seeing the introduction of doubles (later retitled to Duos)

Sign ups opened on July 7th 2022 at Spawn at the pier used for Olympic sign ups.

A starting total of 13 competitors and an additional 4 arrived and competed in both Solos and Doubles respectively.


A Trailer for the Summer showdown was released on July 26th, 4 days ahead of the competition.

A Tutorial video was released the next day.

Summer Showdown 2023

The Second event in the series, The 2023 Summer Showdown marked the biggest step in differentiating both Ice Hockey, and the newly included Jousting, from their Olympic Variants by introducing more new gamemodes for both sports.

The event was confirmed very early on in 2023, and was planned to create a leap forward in how to develop the Ice Hockey sport into its own event beyond the scope of the year prior.


This year debuted the weekend format, consisting of games over both the Saturday and Sunday evenings (according to UTC). This accomodates a larger variety of events, with this year now splitting the entire weekend into two segments - Duos for the Saturday and Solos for the Sunday. This helped ensure all events would be played by both with minimal fatigue. The games included:

  • Ice Hockey [Solo and Duo]
  • Ice Jousting [Solo and (Debuting) Duo]
  • Chaos [Ice Jousting for Solo, Hockey for duo]

Chaos mode

The chaos modes were introduced with this variation and act as a way of developing both classic games into newer, wackier variants. With Ice Jousting's duo mode already being brand new, it received a chaos mode based around solo play, seeing 4 players tackle eachother free for all on a track fitted with cacti at either end to bolster the danger.

Ice Hockey received a duo variant, seeing as its duos mode debuted to a success at the previous years event. This sees players wielding wooden swords enchanted with knockback, allowing for more strategy to be divised between teammates and encouraging them to split up.


The current results are undetermined as this event is ongoing.
