FUZZY CRITTERS CHAMPIONSHIP RULES:
Except where prohibited or restricted by law, winner’s acceptance of prize constitutes the winner’s agreement and consent for PeopleCorp Gaming and any of its designees to use and/or publish winner’s first name and profile picture in perpetuity for any and all purposes, including, but not limited to, advertising, trade and/or promotion on behalf of PeopleCorp Gaming, in any and all forms of media, now known or hereafter devised, including, but not limited to, print, TV, radio, electronic, cable, or World Wide Web, without further limitation, restriction, compensation, notice, review, or approval.
In app purchases are a good alternative to grinding but in no way make up for player skill and decision making.
The following additional rules apply to your participation in the championship:
- Since this is a skill-based game, you must play all matches personally and on your own. You cannot let anyone else play matches on your behalf using your account, nor accept any help from others.
- Again, since this is a skill-based game, cheating of any form will not be tolerated. It is forbidden to use any third-party program or tool that affects the game, and to manipulate the game in unintended ways to gain an unfair advantage over other players.
- If a player disconnects from a duel, they will have 1 minute to return to the duel if not they will forfeit that duel. In the event that both players disconnect from the duel, the player who disconnected first will forfeit the duel if he/she does not return to the game within the 1-minute window.
- We reserve the right to suspend, ban, adjust the ranking of, or otherwise penalize players who violate any of these rules.
Changes to these Rules or the Championship

Any rewards earned in that championship cycle will of course be honored, and the suspension or cancellation of the championship will not affect any rewards earned. We may also suspend or cancel the championship at any time to comply with our legal obligations, or in case of force majeure. Your ability to compete in the championship can also be affected by events beyond our control, such as interruption of your internet connectivity, loss or damage to your device, and so on.

The championship takes place over a one-week period. Each week is divided into two rounds. The first round is a “placement round” running from 9:00 pm EST on Sunday to 9:00 pm EST on Friday, whose goal is to sort players into two skill-based tiers. The second round is a “ranking round” that takes place from 9:01 pm EST on Friday until 8:59 pm EST on Sunday, whose goal is to rank players by skill within their tier. These two rounds are further described below.
The placement round determines which tier you qualify for. Based on your performance in matches during the placement round, you will qualify for one of two tiers: bronze and diamond. The more skilled players will be placed into higher tiers. Rewards are different between tiers, with higher tiers having higher rewards. Your tier placement depends on your performance relative to other players in Fuzzy matches.
Once you have been assigned a tier, you may need to provide a championship entry fee using jade. The amount varies by tier:
- Bronze: Free
- Diamond: 40 Jade
Additionally, you can choose to upgrade from one tier to another for the following amounts (in addition to the normal entry fee for that tier):
- Bronze to Diamond: 20 Jade
The ranking round determines who wins a reward, and how large that reward is. Rewards are based on placement within each tier. Placement is determined by dueling with other players in your tier during the ranking round. The exact criteria for winning a reward, and the size of the reward are explained in the next section.
The championship follows a 4-week cycle before resetting and beginning again. Each week is identical, except that rewards in week 4 are doubled compared to weeks 1-3. Your pool placement and ranking are reset at the end of 4-week cycle, and do not carry over between cycles however the all-time leaderboard is not reset.
