SiIvaGunner Wiki

The King for a Day Tournament Break was a break caused by a strike given to the channel in mid-2018 during which the SiIvaGunner team created the King for a Day Tournament, premiering immediately after this break.


In July 2018, the 2016 uploads "Color Power - Yellow Drill - Sonic Colors" and "p" were removed for violating community guidelines, giving the channel two community strikes which disallowed any new videos from being uploaded. The rip "Oil Ocean Zone Act 1 (OST Version) - Sonic Mania" was the end of the backlog (with one specifically-timed exception), so the channel had no choice but to go on a break.

However, Ethan64Music realized that the channel could still use YouTube's community tab to post updates, so the team thought of a way to use this to their advantage, and on July 15 the team made an announcement via community post and tweet thread asking viewers to send their character ideas for the tournament. Over the rest of the break, the channel began revealing the characters who would be participating on their community tab and Twitter.

In addition to spawning the King for a Day Tournament, this break also delayed PSY Day 3.[4]
