Main Event Format:
4 Rounds of “Play with Friends” Multiplayer. Room Code to be sent by TD via Messenger group. Speed of play to be determined by TD. Excessive slow players may be removed from current and further events. In the event of slow play and/or disconnected players, play may be moved to a new room code after active players complete their round. Any players removed in this manner will receive a DNF.
There is occasional weird physics and glitches within the game (Stuck in solid objects, underwater etc). All players are playing on the same app, same rules, same chance of trouble.
If you obtain a bad score as a result of such glitches then unfortunately have to grin and bear it (and shoot for the Acepool, Shot of the Day & Standout Hot Round).
In the event a player cannot complete a round due to such a glitch then they will receive +4 for each remaining hole for the round and a new room will be started for the next round.
All Players need to be in the Messenger Group (invites will be sent, check Messenger Spam folder if not received). Leaderboards, Scores, Playoffs, Changes, Room Code changes will all be communicated via the messenger group so it is essential player have access to messenger before and during play.
Ties for first shall be decided by 9 hole playoff.
Players can login on the Disc Golf Valley App on either iOS or Android. The most current update to the app is recommended,
All rules and rulings are at TD’s discretion.
Notes for New Players: If you don’t know how to video screen capture on your device then look it up beforehand or ask for advice when added to the Messenger Chat Group.
Video screen capture is not essential for the main events but make it more fun to share some best (and worst…) shots.
It addition there is “Shot of the Day” bonus comp. Video Screen Capture is essential for Shot of the Day bonus comp.
There has been some issues with the DGV Valley freezing between rounds. When this happens we need to create new rooms between rounds and some players have to force close the app and restart to join the new room.
If you do not know how to force close an app on your device then please look it up (or ask in the chat group) prior to the event.
All rules, rulings and decisions are at TD’s discretion.
And have fun! Share your best/worst replays to the Chat group!
Ace Pool: 50 Points from each entry to go towards Ace Pool. First Ace (by hole number) takes 90% of the Ace Pool. The remaining 10% goes toward seeding next AcePool. In the event that Multiple Aces are hit on the same hole then Ace Pool will be evenly split. If Ace Pool does not go off the Ace Pool Jackpots to next event.
Shot of the Day: There’s also a minor points prize for best Shot of Day (during the tourney and aside from Aces*)
Parked the par 4 or hit metal on something? Get the Video screen capture to post afterwards and players can pick the Shot of the Day.
Once Shot of the Day is announced in the chat group, share your shot and the player group votes a winner +1 (one vote per registered player, if vote is tied then TD gets extra deciding vote). No self vote!
Winner takes 100 Portal Portal for Shot of the Day.
*If the AcePool has gone off during the current Event then further Aces may be submitted for Shot of the Day.
Standout Hot Round: After the Main Event if any player has a Standout Hot Round (at least 1 stroke clear of every round score from all 4 rounds) then they win 100 Portal Points Standout Hot Round Bonus!
Standout Hot Round Bonus only pays for a single hot standout round. No standout then no winner. No bonus points for ties, no split wins and Standout Hot Round Bonus does not Jackpot.
BONUS EVENT (Bonus Event in one of the following formats. TD to decide)
Par Push (Bonus Format): You’re eliminated is you hit anything but par on a hole and last man standing is winner.
The Par Push will be a trial mini tester event after the main event. No extra points cost for registered players and we’ll put 100 points up for the winner!
Spectators can play along (or continue to play after elimination)as long as they keep a faster pace of play than the remaining players.
Winner (last player standing) takes 100 Portal Points on the Par Push Bonus Comp.
In the event that all remaining players miss par on the same hole, then the final result is a tie and the prize is split between all players eliminated together on the final hole.
***TIP FOR NEW PLAYERS*** Take care to not end up in “Tap it in” range too soon!
NICED! (Bonus Format):
Think like a combination of Par Push and HORSE.
Play is set by random or room order (TD to decide). The first player takes the lead, plays the hole first and declares their hole score as the new hole “par”.
Shoot for Eagle (or better!) or stack up a triple bogey. Whatever par score the lead player sets, they then declare in Messenger (instant disqualification for accidental or intentionally declaring an incorrect goal score).
All other players then shoot for the lead player set hole par with each shot over or under the new par resulting in a letter (N.I.C.E.D) being added to their name.
Lead rotates to the next player in the order and the process repeats.
Players are eliminated once they have been NICED! (5 letters. The “!” is just for show) and last leader standing takes the win and 100 Portal Points!
***TIP FOR NEW PLAYERS*** Take care to not end up in “Tap it in” range too soon!
