River Raceway, one of the Dogcraft Ice Boat League tracks.

The Dogcraft Ice Boat League is a player-run events organization, which runs tournaments using the several ice boat tracks around the server. The sport utilizes the ability of boats to move on ice in the game.

History

The Dogcraft Ice Boat League (DIBL) was founded in September of 2019 by 18.png TrainerMoon and 18.png mperreault. Its inspiration is taken from Rendog's Ice Boat Track "Sahara Speedy Pines Raceway" on Hermitcraft 6. The idea came to 18.png TrainerMoon when racing against various other players at 18.png TickleMeUnicorn's drowned farm where he had had temporarily set up a small ice boat race track for people to race around while loading more mobs for the farm.

After a short unofficial tournament was held at this track, mperreault asked TrainerMoon and 18.png Excaliber_FC to test out his new ice boat track he had quickly designed. After a couple races, TrainerMoon came up with the idea to create a series of race tracks all over the server and host tournaments at these tracks. Thus, the Ice Boat League was born.

Originally it was just run by TrainerMoon and mperreault. However, the two soon enlisted the help of Excaliber_FC to take part as the official League Commissioner. His job is to help run tournaments to make sure they run smoothly, like a referee. They went on to host two tournaments that were both quite successful.

In November of 2019, TrainerMoon hired the help of 18.png expedtadam to terraform the Ice Boat League Headquarters Island. After expedtadam finished the job, TrainerMoon was so astounded at the final product, he officially made him the Geographical Engineer of the Ice Boat League.

List of Tracks

  • MP Iceway - Built mainly by 18.png mperreault, with some assistance from 18.png TrainerMoon and 18.png Excaliber_FC towards the end. This track actually is 2 tracks in 1. It features a control room next to the start/finish line with a lever that will allow the track to switch from its original shape to its much larger expansion. It also features various drops and bubble elevators to add elevation to the track.

Tournaments

  • Inaugural Tournament: The first tournament of the league featured many racers looking to test the waters of this new league. At the time the Ice Boat League was still semi-official. It featured races at MP Iceway, River Raceway, Pharaoh Falls, Baby Park, Scapelane Speedway, and Ouranos Speedway. The prizes were 10k DCD for third place, which went to 18.png nossi345, 20k DCD for second place, which went to 18.png William278, and 30k DCD for first place, which went to 18.png gupta99999. All communication took place over the general voice channel in the official Dogcraft discord causing many hi-jinxes and confusions.
  • Time Zone Tournament: The second tournament of the league featured racers signing up for one of 3 group preliminary rounds, divided between continents. The 3 groups hosted the rounds at hours that catered to Australia/New Zealand, Europe, and North America in timed races at MP Iceway, Pharaoh Falls, and River Raceway. The 6 fastest racers overall were 18.png SmashNoodles, 18.png dmgdog, 18.png SmallerSnail, 18.png Ategon, 18.png SilverLurker, and 18.png L1GHTN1NG_STR1KE, who qualified to race at the finals at Ouranos Speedway. However, several of these 6 finalists could not make it to the final race so runners up had to take their place. The finals were raced by 18.png dmgdog, 18.png Mackaaaa, 18.png Andalarew, 18.png Ategon, 18.png SilverLurker, and 18.png L1GHTN1NG_STR1KE. The prizes were 10k DCD and an enchanted trident either riptide or channeling based on what second place doesn't pick for third place, which went to 18.png SilverLurker, 25k DCD and an enchanted trident of their choice between riptide or channeling for second place, which went to 18.png dmgdog, and 50k DCD and 2 enchanted tridents, 1 channeling and 1 riptide, for first place, which went to 18.png L1GHTN1NG_STR1KE. In addition, TrainerMoon gave all 6 finalists the option for a free commission of 100 stacks of any wood of their choice.


Headquarters

Located in the overworld at coordinates (x: 1104, z: 785), this sunflower plains biome island was discovered by TrainerMoon on his first week on the server in August of 2019. For the next 4 months, the Ice Boat League staff worked together to transform the island into a gorgeous modern beach resort transformed from an ancient greek temple. It is connected to the SRN as a branch line from the South Station and is connected to the NTN via the East line at the 1k block marker on the right.

Trivia

  • The Ice Boat League used to have its own discord server, but on October 15, 2019, that server was deleted to merge with the Dogcraft Spleef League and Equestrian League to form the DC Leagues Server.
  • Originally, the HQ Island was supposed to house the HQ for the short lived DC Tick game, a variant of the Hot Potato game from Hermitcraft 6.
  • The HQ Island is home to the smallest flower forest biome on the server. The flower forest has an area of 86 blocks and spans 15 blocks North/South and 10 blocks East/West.
  • Only 3 people commissioned wood orders from the Time Zone Tournament.
  • The finals for the Time Zone Tournament were put on pause between races due to a massive phantom attack.
  • 18.png TickleMeUnicorn's track tournament caused a lot of drowned to spawn, many with tridents. It is one of the biggest contributors to the great Trident Economy crash of 2019.
  • Baby Park is home to a special note block rendition of the infamous song, "Baby Shark" as a Christmas present from 18.png TrainerMoon to 18.png MollusSlime
  • The League has been put on hiatus until 1.15 because 1.14 chunk loading was terrible.
