MC Championship (MCC) 27 Underdogs: Live scores and game standings

The latest MC Championship (MCC) event features a special battle between only competitors who have never previously won an event. The 27th installment of the Minecraft tournament is half-canon and called MCC Underdogs.

MCC Underdogs is occurring on the third anniversary of the event and thus features special celebratory elements, such as party hats for players, confetti scattered around, and balloons everywhere to mark the momentous occasion. The anniversary festivities also extend into the MCC mini-games as in honor of the event’s anniversary, maps from all throughout MCC history return for the MCC Underdogs event.

The MCC Underdogs event also follows just one year after MCC All-Stars took place on MCC’s second anniversary. While MCC All-Stars featured only those who had won at least one MCC, MCC Underdogs flips the lineup entirely by putting only those who have never won an MCC event in the spotlight.

MCC 27 is a unique half-canon event, which means that the statistics and records will not be counted, but that the team that claims victory in the event will still be given an official MCC winners coin. It will run mostly as a usual event does with 10 teams competing for the prized MCC coin, although the MCC Underdogs lineup includes both regular competitors who just haven’t been able to claim victory yet and brand-new competitors making their official MCC debut.

A complete breakdown of scores for all 10 teams across the entirety of the MCC event is as follows. All mini-game scoring, who wins each mini-game, who is in the lead after each game occurs, which games are selected to be played, the official game order chosen by the teams in the Decision Dome, the final coin totals after all mini-games have been played, and the ultimate winner will be updated as the tournament unfolds.

To Get to the Other Side (TGTTOSAWAF) Scores

The special MCC Underdogs event kicked off with To Get to the Other Side (TGTTOSAWAF), which is a mini-game centered on being the quickest to reach the other side. TGTTOSAWAF unfolds over six individual rounds on six distinctive maps.

Each map may ask players to utilize various tools like blocks, snowballs, elytras, or pickaxes. All tools exist to either help them find their way through or sabotage other players for a bit of chaos, but the primary goal is always to make it to the other side as soon as possible.

TGTTOSAWAF Winner: Purple Pandas

First Place Overall: Purple Pandas

Battle Box Scores

The second game of the MCC 27 Underdogs event was Battle Box, which is a PvP-centric game that pits each individual team against each other. Battle occurs over nine rounds in a small, enclosed arena where players must work with their teams to eliminate the other competitors in a series of four-vs-four matches while also trying to be the first to fill in the center of the map with their color block. 

At the start of each Battle Box match, all players must choose a kit to aid them in battle. These kits include extra equipment like potions or more arrows that teams can then utilize against their foe during the round. More loot may also be picked up from around the small arena by those able to reach it before the other team does.

Battle Box Winner: Purple Pandas

First Place Overall: Purple Pandas

Ace Race Scores

The third game of MCC 27 was Ace Race, which is a complex race that takes place over a series of laps. Generally, players need to complete three maps but certain special maps have also taken place over four laps, and the Turtle Run map featured in MCC Underdogs did task players with completing four laps.

Throughout any Ace Race map, players may be tasked with completing complex jumps, flying through or around obstacles, and sprinting to reach the end as quickly as possible. The goal of Ace Race is to complete the entire race as quickly as possible.

Ace Race Winner: Purple Pandas

First Place Overall: Purple Pandas

Grid Runners Scores

MCC 27’s fourth game was Grid Runners, which is all about communication and cooperation. Players must work with their teams to navigate through a series of rooms as quickly as possible in what is essentially a complex obstacle course.

Each room will ask players to complete different kinds of tasks. Players may have to eliminate mobs, replicate an art piece, solve a puzzle, shoot at a series of targets, craft numerous items, navigate complex parkour, or otherwise work through various tasks that are designed to test both technical Minecraft and teamwork skills.

Grid Runners Winner: Red Rabbits

First Place Overall: Purple Pandas

Meltdown Scores

The fifth game to take place in MCC 27 Underdogs was decided through an audience vote that took place on MCC’s Twitter. Whichever game out of Big Sales at Build Mart, Parkour Tag, Sands of Time, and Meltdown received the least votes would then be selected to be played next.

Ultimately, Meltdown received the least votes and thus was selected to be played fifth in the event lineup. Meltdown takes place over the course of three rounds and follows teams as they navigate an ever-melting map while trying to mine coins and eliminate other players.

The rapid battle royale game equips players with bows and arrows as their only tools for battle, but these tools are enchanted to freeze players. All players also have a trusty heater to help them unfreeze their teammates.

Meltdown Winner: Cyan Coyotes

First Place Overall: Cyan Coyotes

Hole in the Wall Scores

MCC 27’s sixth game was Hole in The Wall, which is a game where players must traverse through a series of complex puzzle walls while standing on a fairly small platform. The entire goal of the game is to survive for as long as possible because coins are earned for surviving and outlasting other players.

Hole in the Wall occurs over three rounds on the same map, which gives players a few opportunities to score big. As each round goes on, the walls and the speed at which they approach players will steadily increase.

Hole in the Wall Winner: Purple Pandas

First Place Overall: Purple Pandas

Parkour Tag Scores

The seventh game in the MCC Underdogs event was Parkour Tag. This game, which is basically a complex game of tag, took place on a brand new map that debuted for the first time ever during the MCC 27 event.

Every team goes head-to-head over the course of nine rounds in which they must select one team member to hunt the opposing team. The remaining players on each team must then play a massive game of tag where they traverse around the map and try to survive as long as possible and ideally never be tagged.

Parkour Tag Winner: Orange Ocelots

First Place Overall: Cyan Coyotes

Sands of Time Scores

The final mini-game in the MCC 27 event was, as it so often is, Sands of Time. Competitors regularly prefer to make this the last game due to the massive coin differentials and the possibility of any team losing all their coins in the mini-game since this can make teams jump all the way up to play in the Dodgebolt duel.

Sands of Time takes players to an immensely complex dungeon packed with danger and treasure. Teams must work together and communicate to ensure their sand time always has sand in it while also ensuring they traverse through the dungeon to find coins. If the sand timer runs out, players are trapped there and lose all their coins for the game.

Coin results

After all eight mini-games were played, the coin totals across all of the mini-games are as follows. These are the results of the event before the finale Dodgebolt duel where the winner is decided by a showdown between the top two performing teams.

In MCC 27, the top two teams who moved forward to the finale Dodgebolt duel were the Purple Pandas and the Cyan Coyotes. The Purple Pandas included Blushi, FireBreathMan, Bdubs, and impulseSV while the Cyan Coyotes included DisguisedToast, BoxBox, ItzMasayoshi, and iiTzTimmy.

Dodgebolt results

The duel between the Purple Pandas and the Cyan Coyotes was a close race right until the very end. Each of the Dodgebolt rounds took quite a long time and ran much longer than usual as both teams fought hard to win the coveted MCC coin.

In the end, the Purple Pandas won the event with a Dodgebolt score of 3-1.

The Purple Pandas scored 20,261 coins overall in the MCC Underdogs event and consisted of team members Blushi, FireBreathMan, Bdubs, and impulseSV.
