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.

Previous Battles



There have been 4 Advent Calendars thus far:

Major Battle



Since 2020, the series is hosted as a Major Battle.
Every day at midnight (BotB Server Time (PST)), the format token and bitpack gets updated. BotBrs have exactly 24 hours to finish their entry for the day. A regular human being needs sleep though, which means noone should actually spend all 24 hours by working on their entry. The average time put into an entry should be 1 to 4 hours. The usual XHB-rules apply: Your entry should be done within the day, please don't submit tracks you finished earlier, follow the rules or use the provided samples, depending on the bitpack-type.

On Dec 1, the main entry period starts and the first format appears! Theres a countdown on the Battle Info page 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 fun starts again. 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
You can vote on entries for a day as soon as it's over. This way, people don't need to wait for all days to be over before they can start voting.

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.
