Due to technical difficulties, not all players were placed in their respective races during Round 1 of the tournament. In order for every qualified racer to have a chance to race, we are going to re-run the races that were affected. We will email and post the private server codes for each race on Discord in the #shamrock-showdown channel, in addition to the bracket sheet. The Live Stream of The Shamrock Showdown Races will also be postponed and is now scheduled to begin at 11:30 am PT. Thank you for your patience.

The Shamrock Showdown will consist of a multi-day Qualifying Round and a tournament bracket to determine the winners in each Vehicle Tier. The track that Uplanders will compete on throughout the entire showdown is the “Portage Park” Racetrack. Only races run on this track during the showdown will qualify for leaderboard placement.
In order to participate, you must own a MV Motors car. If you do not own one, you can use the new Metaventure Directory to find car showrooms where you can purchase a new sweet ride to participate in the Shamrock Showdown!
If you are unfamiliar with Multiplayer Racing in Upland, check out the Introducing Multiplayer Racing Announcement to get you ready for the showdown.
To ensure fairness for each car model in the Shamrock Showdown, we have assigned each model to a specific vehicle tier with similar performance stats. Each vehicle tier will have its own qualifiers and tournament bracket. If you own multiple cars in different vehicle tiers, you are allowed to compete in each one, but you can only qualify once for each vehicle tier. This means that you can win multiple times across different tiers.
Check out the chart below to see which vehicle tier your car(s) fit into.
As mentioned earlier, there will be a separate tournament for each vehicle tier, consisting of a Qualifying, Round 1, Round 2, Semi-Final and Final Round. To participate in all vehicle tiers, players must own a car in each respective tier. Check out the details for each round below.
The Qualifying Round will start on Monday, March 13 at 9 AM PT and end on Thursday, March 16 at 9 AM PT. During qualifiers, each time a race with a minimum of four vehicles (including the player) is run on the “Portage Park” Racetrack, the player’s fastest time will be recorded on the Shamrock Showdown Leaderboard. Players can also race against bots, but if there are fewer than four vehicles in the race, those times will not be logged. Players have the freedom to race as many times as they wish to achieve their quickest time. We will add a new chat channel to the In-Game Chat for players who want to coordinate a race together.
After the qualifiers, the Top 48 players from each vehicle tier leaderboard will move onto the Tournament Bracket to determine the winners of each tier. All players who have qualified for the tournament will receive an email with instructions on how to join the races for the tournament rounds.
Note: Rainbow is the only vehicle tier that will have a total of 24 players who advance to Round 1.
The Top 48 players from the qualifiers in each vehicle tier will compete in Round 1, starting on Friday, March 17 at 9 AM PT. Each Round 1 race will have six players, with the three fastest players from each vehicle tier race advancing to the Semi-Final round.
The Round 2 will consist of the 24 fastest players from each vehicle tier in the previous round. Round 2 will begin shortly after Round 1 ends and will be live-streamed on YouTube. Each Round 2 race will have staggered start times and consist of six players, with the three fastest players from each vehicle tier advancing to the Final round.
The Semi-Final Round will consist of the 12 fastest players from each vehicle tier in the previous round. The Semi-Final’s will begin shortly after Round 2 ends and will be live-streamed on YouTube. Each Semi-Final race will have staggered start times and consist of six players, with the three fastest players from each vehicle tier advancing to the Final round.
The Finals will consist of the six fastest players from each vehicle tier in the previous round. The Final round will begin shortly after the Semi-Finals end and will also be live-streamed on YouTube. Each Finals race will have staggered start times and consist of six players, with the three fastest players from each vehicle tier winning a Shamrock Showdown Trophy.
Each time that a race is run on the “Portage Park” Racetrack for the week, the BEST time for each player is recorded on the leaderboard. Each car will be placed into a Vehicle Tier with similar performance stats. Each Vehicle Tier will have its own filter on the leaderboard that contains the best times for the finishers that used a car in that Vehicle Tier. Check back on this post during the showdown for leaderboard updates.
Let's take a look at the exciting rewards from the Shamrock Showdown, which include UPX, Block Explorers, and badges for the fastest racers. There will be rewards for each vehicle tier, which means that players have the potential to receive rewards from multiple tiers.
