Stardew Valley Creator Holding $40,000 Tournament To Separate Wheat From Chaff – Kotaku

Stardew Valley Cup Is A $40,000 Tourney By Creator ConcernedApe

Here are some examples:

  • Finish the craft room – 10 points
  • Win ice fishing contest – 15 points
  • Give Pam a pale ale – 5 points
  • Give a loved gift at the feat of the winter star – 25 points
  • Reach level 120 in the mines – 10 points
  • Complete a monster eradication goal – 20 points
  • Obtain a trash hat – 10 points

Instead of operating solo, the competition will feature four teams of four players each. Each team will use Stardew Valley’s multiplayer coop to work together on the same map. They’ll also get an additional point for every item that they’ve shipped during the competition, and the team with the most gold at the end will also get another bonus 20 points. But wait, there’s more! Throughout the event Hartman will be regularly revealing surprise challenges that players learn about and decide how to react to on the spot.

“There’s going to be five challenges in total and each one of them is worth 50 points which I hope is going to tempt players away from their predetermined route and risk it for the biscuit,” he said in a video explaining the upcoming Stardew Valley Cup rules in detail.

Tasks like reaching level 120 in the mines can take teams of even four players close to an hour to complete, so it will be interesting to see how they prioritize points and partition out the work. You can approach practically any game with a competitive mindset, but the Stardew Valley Cup seems extremely well thought out and well positioned to create some tense and potentially chaotic moments, especially with so much money on the line.

The main event is scheduled to take place Labor Day weekend on September 4 at 12:00 p.m. ET with Barone and Hartman live streaming and commentating on all the action on Twitch and YouTube.
