3rd sakura sports festival event page



The Sakura Sports Festival--affectionately(?) known as SportsFes or SSF--is back for a third year but this time in its original form (thanks to the efforts of everyone from last year’s SportsFes)! If it’s your first time experiencing our infamous summer event then feel free to take a look at the 2017 and 2018 iterations of it. This year’s SportsFes will be more similar to the 2017 version!

Please note that we've allotted a specific period between the end of the 2nd half + task deadline and the actual end of the event so staff have a bit extra time to process/reward anything as well as so players have enough time to sort out what can be used for points (from what's been turned in by the task deadline), to turn in those/any remaining points, and for captains to get the final team points organized! Anything completed during this time frame cannot be used in the event even though it's not officially over yet.
