I’ve seen folks being pulled up for heaps of stuff throughout a aggressive tournament, however brightness settings are a brand new one. Popular content material creator Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney was competing in a Minecraft Twitch Rivals tournament with associates. He was even doing fairly nicely till somebody observed that his screen appeared lots brighter than others. It seems that’s a difficulty, and his group had been docked sufficient factors to lose them the tournament.
Twitch Rivals guidelines for the Minecraft tournament spell out that gamers had to make use of Vanilla Minecraft with no mods or add-ons (thanks, DotEsports). While the group can’t say if Tfue was utilizing any “unlawful mods or texture packs”, they’re assured that “sure views had been solely obtainable by means of tweaking settings exterior of the in-game consumer”.
“After overview, there is no such thing as a clear proof that the accused participant was utilising any unlawful mods or texture packs,” Caleb ‘WavePunk’ Simmons, who was one of many tournament’s hosts, says. “However, admins had been capable of reproduce that sure views had been solely obtainable by means of tweaking settings exterior of the in-game consumer.”
So why does all this matter? Twitch Rivals’ Minecraft tournament includes several minigames that contain issues like scavenger hunts and normal minion bopping. As you’ll see within the tweet beneath, although, Tfue’s stage of brightness gave him sure benefits in recognizing issues deep into the ocean, for instance.
So Tfue’s group received dropped from 1st to third in Twitch Rivals because of FullBright. Thoughts? The guidelines did clarify “Vanilla”. You can set this brightness by modifying the choices.txt file with no mod, however you may’t get this w/ simply in-game settings. What do you suppose? pic.twitter.com/b9HMKhIzH2

In the top, Team Tfue had six factors knocked off their complete, which accounts for every spherical they’d the benefit in. That was sufficient to take the competitors away from them, with the winner taking house the highest prize of $12,000. Tfue appears to be taking it in good spirits, at the very least.
WE JUST WON TWITCH RIVALS AND THEY DISQUALIFIED US BECAUSE MY BRIGHTNESS WAS TOO HIGH????
