The 2017 Feather Cup tournament was quite the experience. Thank you to all the players that participated. It was an absolute to host and be a part of top-tier players coming together for the ultimate playoff. The level of skill displayed was nothing short of amazing. Watching the last four brackets in action, there was an impressive display of strategy and tactics learned over hundreds of hours. It really showcased the impressive depth of mechanics in a game that appears simple at first.
I am pleased to announce the Feather Cup is now engraved with the name of our winner – Slinky. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind peice, fit for a person who exemplifies the contageous fun that we embrace in top-tier multiplayer games. I am honored to have the generous donations of our community, including the developer himself, contribute to the tournament, our community, and the prizes for our winners.
Thank you all for being a part of a community and game that is near and dear to my heart. Slinky – your trophy will ship soon. You certainly have earned it.

Join our Steam group and be in the chat at 7:00 PM. We are working on the bracketing now and will fill slots on a first come, first serve basis. Disregard most of the web site for our main event info – the site is out of date and needs to be corrected when someone has time. *cough*
Registration will start in the Feathers Will Fly Steam chat. You can get there by clicking the blue “Join Steam Chat” button on the right. We start registration at 7:00.
The “Registration” page is for our regular tournaments. I have not redesigned the site for our event and likely will not have time to do so… Please spread the word.
Feel free to comment on our posts to communicate with us, or post any questions in the Feathers Will Fly Discord.
Also: Prizes. The winner of the tournament will receive the coveted Feather Cup itself. Quarterfinalists will receive the Humble Adult Swim Bundle, including Duck Game and many other great Adult Swim games.
Lastly, as a side note, our funding pool has been exhausted by the cup, prizes, and hosting expenses. The donation by superjoebob was ULTRA generous. The cup itself was around $140 and will end up well over $200 including shipping to SJB and to our skilled recipient. $100 was spent on prizes. Some was used to reward our dedicated administrators for running our tournaments through Humble Bundle packages. Plus there are hosting expenses. While minimal, there are electrical and domain registration expenses to keep everything up and running.
I am looking forward to the tournament. It has been planned for well over a year and anticipated by our community. I’m looking forward to seeing you there.
Check back periodically for a sign-up sheet. While we still need to iron out details, such as the date and exact format of the tournament, we know there are some hard-core ducks that will participate no matter what. You can get an early head start by commenting on this post. Otherwise we’ll have some sort of pre-registration shortly.
