Hide and SEek: BLack waltz edition

Event Date: Saturday, July 27th, 2019 at 9:00PM EST

Coming this Summer to Eorzea is the first ever game of Hide and Seek for the Black Waltz Free Company. This game of Hide and Seek will have 3 rounds and take place in the 3 major cities of Eorzea: Limsa Lominsa, Gridania, and Ul’dah. Players will try to find a hiding spot within these cites while the person who’s IT attempts to find and tag them within a time limit. A point system will determine winners and prizes for both players who are IT and for players who are trying to not be found. In the event of a tie, a tie breaker round will take place to determine winners in a secret location. The tie breaker round will have its own set of “sudden death” rules. 

  1. Each round will start with the person who is IT standing at an assigned location in each city while the hiding players have 60 seconds to hide. 
  2. A countdown will be initiated so everyone knows how long they have to find a hiding spot.
  3. Hiding players will not be allowed to move from their hiding spot once the countdown has ended. 
  4. After the countdown has ended, the player who is IT will then have 15 minutes to locate and TAG the other players.
  5. A TAG occurs when the player who is IT successfully initiates a TRADE with the hiding player. (Trades can only be initiated from a short distance and will pop up on both players’ screens).
  6. The round will end when all hiding players are found or the 15 minutes per round has elapsed. After each round is completed, points will be tallied, and the game will move to another city.
  7. Once all rounds have completed winners will be announced at the Black Waltz FC house. 

NOTE: All players hiding will be placed into a party that will contain one or more volunteer Judges. Judges will be monitoring their maps to ensure that all players participating do not move from their hiding location once the countdown timer has ended. The player who is IT will not be in these parties so they will have no indication on their map as to the whereabouts of the hiding players. 

An event Linkshell will be created and all participants must be able to join. This will be used to communicate between all participants without having to disrupt FC chat. In addition, please refrain from mentioning to any player where you or another player’s hiding location is/was until each round has ended. We do not want the IT to have any clues on where to find someone. 


Points will be given to each player participating in the following manner:

Players who are "IT:"


Each person you find and TAG within the 15 minute round the will award you 2 points. Those points will be tallied at the end of each round to determine your score. Scores will determine which prize you are awarded at the end of the game based on a 1st, 2nd, & 3rd point scale system.

Players who are hiding:

Players who are not found and TAGGED after the 15 minutes per round has elapsed will be awarded 10 points. The player who was tagged last each round will receive 7 points and 2nd to last will receive 5 points. If all players are found and TAGGED, points will be assigned in a 1st, 2nd, & 3rd point scale system where the last person TAGGED receives 10 points, 2nd to last 7 points, and 3rd to last 5 points. All other players that are TAGGED will receive 3 points. 


Players who are "IT:"

1st place - 1,500,000 gil

2nd place – 500,000 gil

3rd place – 250,000 gil

Player who are hiding:

1st place - 1,500,000 gil

2nd place – 500,000 gil

3rd place – 250,000 gil

o All other participants – 100,000 gil


In the event that there is a tie between either the players who are IT,  the players who are hiding, or both, a final round will take place that has amended rules. A secret location will be announced where the final round will take place. If IT players are tied, the round will have those players race to find and TAG a group that will be hiding in the secret location.

If hiding players are tied, they will participate in another round where they will hide in the secret location until all players are found and TAGGED.

The above rules for regular rounds and the points assigned will not change except for there will be not be a time limit to this round.
