The BotB Advent Calendar is an annual battle series hosted by kleeder. First two battles were hosted as OHBs but this was changed to a Major Battle in 2020.
It's based on the concept of Advent Calendars, where you open a little present every day in december until christmas.

For the first two years, every day from Dec 1 to Dec 24, an OHB was hosted with a different format and bitpack. Since 2020, it's all done as one big Major Battle with changing format every day. This change was decided by vote in late September 2020.

Major Battle



Since 2020, the series is hosted as a Major Battle.

***Everything after this note isn't set in stone yet and works as a Construct Manifest!***

Cover Art Ideas:
- the battle starts 1-2 weeks early and only has mixbattle_art as an option
- alternative: battle art is a second format all the time during the main entry period
- or: battle art is made in a visuall 4hb before
- or: mixbattle_art is part of the surprise formats at one day

On Dec 1, the main entry period starts and the first format appears! Entry Period is set to 24 hours to let everyone know how much time is left for the day. After 24 hours when the countdown reachs zero, the format gets replaced with a new one and the entry period is set back to 24 hours remaining. Which formats are selected is a secret to everybody. Discussion threads before the actual major are usually used to find out which formats are wanted by most people, but that doesn't mean we only do allgear every day ;D
The voting period starts on Christmas after the last of the 24 formats is done.

A main problem with this approach currently are bitpacks/themes. Having "christmas music" as the general theme could be either cool or really boring.
Ideas:
- option to upload a bitpack for every format/day. Could be listed on the battle info page like this (imagine the text is centered):

Day 1: donload bitpack
Advent Calendar Day 1 samples.zip
56.56kb with this they began

Day 2: Make music for a snow mountain level!

Follow teh theme or die!

Day 3: Boss Battle Music against Santa Claus

Follow teh theme or die!

Day 4: donload bitpack
Advent Calendar Day 4 samples.zip
56.56kb with this they began

- maybe it should be a file, even if it's just text, because having a lot of text inside the boxes looks ugly

OHB Advent Calendar



Before the series turned into a major battle, there were 24 seperated OHBs hosted from Dec 1 to Dec 24 with a different format and bitpack. The format choice was kept as a secret until the battle launched. Voting periods in 2019 were almost a day until the next battle started to get as many votes as possible. Renderpacks were provided as well.

Results Calculation
Since this battle series wasn't a major battle at first, the results were calculated with the following formula: [Average Score] - [Number of days without participation]

Example: If your average score is 35.000 because you only submitted to one XHB and got a perfect all7 vote, your final score will be 35-23 (12), because you missed 23 XHBs. If your average score is 22.465 and you missed only one XHB, your final score will be 21.465. The BotBr with the highest final score wins.

In 2019, there was a reward of 560 boons for the winner of the event.
Since the winner was kleeder, the boon payout went to the BotBr in second place: argarak.

Votings
In 2019, there was also a special boon reward for everyone who voted on every or almost every XHB.
The formula was: 100 - [number of missed XHBs times 10]

Example: If you missed 1 XHB, you get 90 boons. If you missed 10 XHBs, you get 0 boons.
