Season 2 of The Diary Game begins on August 1st.
One of the major new features being introduced are Country Teams.
As well as competing individually as in the first season, people can also join with up to four other people in their same country to compete for the additional team prizes.
We know some teams have already been formed - we are looking forward to hearing news of more.
The Diary Game Season 2 - Country Teams
In addition to main prize pot of 5000 STEEM for individuals in Season 2, there will a be separate pot of at least 2000 STEEM for the winning Country Teams.
For any team that makes an announcement post before August 1st we will do our best to give a significant upvote.
Forming team is quite straightforward but here are the main rules and guidelines to be aware of...
- Teams can have UP TO five players.
- Members of a team must live in the same country.
- The points earned by a team will be the total of all the points earned by the individual members.
- A player can only be a member of one team.
- Teams can be announced at any time, including during Season 2.
- If a Team is formed after the start of the season only the points earned by individual members after the team announcement will count towards the team total.
- After a team has been announced every member must either make a post confirming their membership of the team, or at least make a confirming comment on the announcement post.
- Team membership can change at any time up to the start of Season 2 on August 1st. Thereafter members can not be changed, only added to if the team started with less than five. Teams should make a new announcement post if members change.
- There can be more than one team from each country.
- Teams should adopt a team name - but it should not be solely of the form 'Team Country X'. It must have at least one additional word so no team can claim to be the sole representing team for a country.
- Teams are encouraged to register an account name for the team for announcement posts and for receiving any prizes. However all diary posts should be made on the individual member accounts.
Teams are new to Season 2 so we may need to modify the rules if any abuse or exploitation is discovered. Changes will be announced on @steemitblog.
If anyone spots any flaws or discrepancies in these rules, or believes some issues have been missed, please comment below.
