The Minty Maniacs are a mint-green team introduced in Hubelino Tournament 2016, and Hubelino Tounament 2018. The Minty Maniacs have competed in both seasons of the tournament as well as Marble League 2018.

After a brief period of retirement, they appeared in the Marble League Showdown 2019 to compete for one of eight spots in the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers. They were able to make it and then qualified for the Marble League 2020, where they medaled in the first three events, the most successful start to a Marble League so far. They started to fall back after that and fell to 4th after Triathlon. They podiumed in two consecutive events and took back the lead, and lost it after performing poorly in the next four events. They would manage to podium in last two events and rose up to 3rd in the standings in the end.

On 5th November 2020, it was announced that the Minty Maniacs would host the first Grand Prix of Marbula One Season 2.

Team Members

Minty Drizzel, Minty Flav, Minty Fresh, and Minty Swirl were the original members of the team. Minty Mint was added to the team in 2018. Minty Flav became team captain in 2019.

History

Pre-2016

The Minty Maniacs are a marble sports team from Herbotamia, a region within southwestern Asia known for growing herbs and spices. It has also gained a reputation for being the "freshest" place in the world according to Atlas Marbura, an acclaimed travel guide. The five original members of the Minty Maniacs, Minty Drizzel, Minty Flav, Minty Fresh, Minty Swirl and Minty Mint, are all candy fanatics, especially when it's mint flavored.

The five competed together in local "turf tournaments" which featured a variety events that utilized their surroundings. This could include doing a Catwalk along a wooden beam or doing a Quartet Jump down a slope into a lake. These competitions quickly grew in popularity throughout Western Asia as fun outdoor activities and potential professional sports leagues. They were mainly conducted without audiences due to the hot, dry climate of the Western Asian summertime when the land isn't being harvested or planted.

The Minty Maniacs led the first tournament, which featured themselves, the Black Jacks and the Golden Wisps. The next season, more teams from across the region joined them and officially became the Herbotamia Tournament. During the second year, marble sports started to grow in popularity worldwide. The athletes were approached to be in a sports featurette about marble sports, but they declined due to the team always seeing it as a casual activity. The featurette later went on to go viral. The Minty Maniacs later regretted not featuring in it, hesitating to take part due to shyness.

The featurette brought popularity to the Knikkegen Marble League, which began to grow at the expense of smaller leagues like the Fruit Circuit and the Herbotamia Tournament. The cost of maintaining the tournament without sponsorship started to become a problem, which wasn't helped by the announcement of Marble League 2016. The Minty Maniacs decided to retire and go into the food industry, making homemade mint chocolate ice cream. However, just as they were about to retire, the team were approached by Jelle Bakker, who ran the Marble League.

Although Jelle was focused on the Marble League, they missed running a regional competition. They offered the Minty Maniacs a sponsorship to keep the Herbotamia Tournament running. After contacting the other teams, the Minty Maniacs accepted, and the tournament was rebranded as the Hubelino Tournament, with the first competition, Hubelino Tournament 2016, scheduled to start after Marble League 2016.[1]

2016–2017

The Minty Maniacs during the Block Push

The Hubelino Tournament differed from the Herbotamia Tournament as it was filmed for the internet, the first time for a regional tournament, so it could reach a wider audience. It also featured artificial Hubelino tracks. However, the lack of in-person audience was kept to preserve the original "friendly round" atmosphere. Eight teams competed in this tournament, including the Minty Maniacs, the Black Jacks, and the Golden Wisps. The Minty Maniacs had a strong start in the Hubelino Tournament 2016, winning three medals in the first four events - two silvers in Funnel Spinning and Halfpipe Crash, and a bronze in the Elimination Maze. The team were in second overall at this point, behind the Black Jacks. However, their fortunes started to turn. A fourth place finish in Event 5, the Quartet Jump and a sixth place finish in Event 6, Pursuit Slalom, dropped them to fourth overall at the start of 2017. The team continued to finish in the middle to bottom half of the table and, at the end of Event 8, Combination, the original ending of the tournament, they were still in fourth.

The Minty Maniacs on the course in the Relay Course

The tournament was then extended by four more events, and the Minty Maniacs continued their middle to bottom half finishes. By the end of Event 10, the Relay Course, they had dropped to sixth. During the tournament, the eight teams had become close and so, during the short break from the tournament, they all went to watch Marble League 2017. The Minty Maniacs had never seen a competition like it and were inspired to work harder. Unfortunately, they finished the Hubelino Tournament 2016 with two bottom half finishes, dropping them to seventh overall. Some have said this is the earliest known example of the Host's Curse. However, the team were not disappointed, as they had already set their sights on training for Marble League 2018. Jelle offered all eight of the Hubelino teams a chance to compete in the Marble League 2018 Qualifiers. The Minty Maniacs, along with the Black Jacks and the Golden Wisps (who renamed themselves to the Golden Orbs), accepted the offer, and were joined by the Raspberry Racers (who revealed that some of their members had competed for the Valiant Violets and the Bluefastics).[1]

2018

Marble League 2018

The Minty Maniacs in the ML 2018 Qualifiers draw

The Minty Maniacs were seeded in Group A of the Marble League 2018 Qualifiers. Minty Drizzel performed very well in the second event, Snow Race, and finished second. The team also came third in the final event, Halfpipe. They did well enough in the other two events to come third in their group and qualify for Marble League 2018. All the other Hubelino teams, except the Raspberry Racers, failed to qualify.

The Minty Maniacs' hopes of a good start to Marble League 2018 were crushed after Minty Fresh finished last in the first event, the 5 Meter Ice Dash. This was followed by some more middle of the table results, taking them up to 14th by the end of Event 4, Bobsled. Two fifth place finishes in Event 5 and 6 suggested the team might be on the rise.

The Minty Maniacs losing to the Midnight Wisps in the Ice Hockey Final

Unfortunately, the Minty Maniacs stumbled again with two twelfth place finishes in Event 7 and Event 8. Things got even worse for the team when they again came last in Event 10, the Biathlon, dropping the team to 15th with only two events to go. The next event was Ice Hockey.The team managed to surprise everyone by making it to the final, only to lose to the Midnight Wisps. As a result, the Minty Maniacs won their first medal, a silver, and the team rose to 13th overall. They managed to stay there at the conclusion of Marble League 2018.

After Marble League 2018, the Minty Maniacs were acutely aware how the Hubelino Tournament had not prepared them for the Marble League. The team took part in the 100 Meter Water Race and had Minty Drizzel represent them. Unfortunately, they failed to finish. The Minty Maniacs decided to retire from the Marble League, which was announced during the Amazing Maze Marble Race. They were joined by the Black Jacks and the Golden Orbs. They all decided to not take part in the Marble League 2019 Qualifiers in favor of the Hubelino Tournament 2018.[2][1]

Hubelino Tournament 2018

leftThe Minty Maniacs beating the Golden Orbs in the Relay Race Final

The Minty Maniacs' experience may not have helped them in Marble League 2018, but it did help them in the Hubelino Tournament 2018. The team won five medals: two golds, two silvers and one bronze. They only missed the podium in three event, the Swing Wave, Halfpipes and the final event, the Big Tower. They had been on the top of the standings going into the final event, but unfortunately they finished sixth in the event. Meanwhile, the Bumblebees, who took the place of the now-retired Team Phoenix, won their fourth gold medal and the championship in an underdog upset. The Minty Maniacs dropped to second at the end of the tournament.

After their successes, fans were calling for the Minty Maniacs to take part in the Marble League 2019 Qualifiers, but the team were looking forward to the next Hubelino Tournament. Unfortunately, it never came. Rumors of teams such as the Green Gang and the Valiant Violets retiring, coupled with a lack of ticket sales and interest from the fans, led to the disbandment of the Hubelino Tournament, despite Jelle's best efforts.[1]

2019

With no competition available for them, the Minty Maniacs decided to disband in early 2019 as they returned to Herbotamia. During this time, they collaborated with the Chocolatiers to produce a Marble League-branded mint chocolate ice cream flavor name "Mint Chocolate Condition". The proceeds went to support regional marble sports tournaments around the world. When the Marble League Showdown 2019 was announced, the Minty Maniacs regrouped and had a discussion about the tournament, deciding whether to come out of retirement and take part. They were guaranteed a spot in the tournament due to their second place finish in the Hubelino Tournament 2018. With the encouragement of the Black Jacks and the Golden Orbs, the Minty Maniacs decided to reunite and compete. Minty Flav was voted to be team captain, and Minty Hint joined the team as their coach.

Minty Swirl getting second place in the Funnel Race

The Minty Maniacs were the only team to compete in the Marble League Showdown 2019 that had competed before and had never failed to qualify, as well as the only team to come out of retirement. Despite this, the team faced fierce competition from old teams and newcomers alike. Halfway through the competition, the team were in 11th overall after an eighth place finish in the Sand Rally and a last place finish in Collision. They realized they needed a good result to qualify. Then came Event 3, the Funnel Race. Minty Swirl was chosen to represent the Minty Maniacs in the event due to their expertise in funnel spinning. True to their name, they swirled around in mint condition, winning them a silver medal. The team jumped to sixth overall. This also made them the first team to have earned a medal in the Marble League, Marble League Showdown and the Hubelino Tournament.

Despite their best efforts, the Minty Maniacs could not get back to their Hubelino 2018 form in the final event, Balancing. They finished in ninth place, two centimeters ahead of the Shining Swarm. The Minty Maniacs ended the Showdown with 22 points, the same as the Shining Swarm, but their silver medal put them just ahead. The team finished in eighth overall and thus qualified for the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers in the final spot.[1]

2020

Marble League 2020

The Minty Maniacs were not invited to compete in Marbula One Season 1 but did travel to Thorston to watch the Short Circuit Grand Prix after being invited by the Snowballs. As the Maniacs were preparing for Marble League 2020, they saw the announcement that John Rolliver would be donating money to food banks in the name of the event winners. The team decided that they were going to be the ones to get the most money donated.

The Minty Maniacs had an OK start to the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers, finishing middle of the pack in the first three events. Going into the final event, all they needed to do was maintain their position and hold on. Minty Fresh came in last in the heat, but despite this seemingly poor performance, Minty Fresh finished in fifth which bumped up the Minty Maniacs' position to sixth overall, qualifying them for Marble League 2020. The Snowballs didn't qualify so some of their fans started to root for the Minty Maniacs, becoming known as the #ColdForGold partnership.

The Minty Maniacs getting first in Balancing

The Maniacs' start to Marble League 2020 was the best start in the Marble League's history. They finished first in the first event, Balancing, and won two medals in the next two events, a bronze in the Halfpipe and another gold in Funnel Endurance. By the fifth event, the Minty Maniacs were top of the Marble League with a record-high 83 points. However, their form began to get worse, and disappointing 14th and tenth place finishes in the next two events, Block Pushing and the Triathlon, left them in fourth overall. Then Minty Flav managed to clinch a bronze in the Sand Mogul Race, sending them to second in the Marble League, just 10 points behind the leading O'rangers.

Minty Flav crossing the finish line in third in the Sand Mogul Race Final

A gold in the 5 Meter Sprint skyrocketed the team into first again with a nine point buffer, but an abysmal 16th in the very next event, Black Hole Funnel, followed up by a 15th place finish in the Relay Race, caused the Maniacs to fall to third. After this event, the Maniacs submitted an unsuccessful bid to host Marble League 2021 at their stadium, Pepper Field. The Maniacs fell to fourth after two more middle of the pack finishes, putting them 36 points behind the leading O'rangers with two events to go. The final push saw the Maniacs win bronze in Collision. The team watched the Marble League Showdown 2021 in the break between the final two events, cheering for their friends the Snowballs and the Chocolatiers. The Minty Maniacs sent out Minty Fresh for the final event, the Marble Marathon. Fresh managed to clinch a gold but unfortunately this was not enough to win Marble League 2020 but was enough for them to finish in third overall, just one point behind the second place O'rangers, qualifying them for Marble League 2021. They achieved their goals of finishing on the podium and donating the most money to food banks. John Rolliver loved their story so much that they put a photo of the Maniacs in their studio. In addition, Minty Fresh was named Most Valuable Marble for being the second double gold medalist in a Marble League. They threw a party to celebrate their success, inviting the other teams to celebrate.

Before leaving Polaria, the team decided to have one last giveaway for charity. They teamed up with the Kobalts for a two-day bake sale with the proceeds going to charities across Herbotamia and Zuro.

Upon their arrival back in Chlorotopia, a large crowd of fans from across Herbotamia came to greet them. They didn't do a parade but did speak to the crowd, thanking them for their support.[1]

Off-season

In September of 2020, Minty Fresh had an idea to host a Herbotamia Tournament Reunion. Minty Flav loved the idea and invited all of the former competitors. As this would have made nine teams, they also invited the Yarble Yellers, Grape Nuts and Team Plasma. Before the competition, some of the teams met up and played Marbles and Monoliths together. The Reunion was a private event with only limited family, friends and VIPs being invited so the results of the tournament remain unknown.[1]

Marbula One Season 2

Minty Drizzel on their home course

With their impressive Marble League season, the Minty Maniacs were invited to participate in Marbula One Season 2, which they accepted, sending Minty Drizzel "Rainmaker" and Minty Fresh "Long Lasting" for the tournament. On 5th November 2020, they were announced as hosts of the season opener at their home track, Minty Mania. However, in their first Grand Prix, Minty Drizzel stumbled on the 180-degree turn during the qualifiers and finished with a time of 18.430 seconds, getting overtaken by Razzy who started shortly behind. This caused the Minty Maniacs to finish last in the qualifiers, missing the first Grand Prix of the season. Minty Fresh also failed to qualify at the next Grand Prix at the O'raceway making them the only team to not qualify for either of the opening Grands Prix.

Minty Drizzel finally managed to qualify at the Honeydome Grand Prix and scored their first points by finishing eighth, jumping to 16th in the overall standings. Minty Fresh failed to qualify again at the Aquamaring GP. Minty Drizzel qualified at the Tumult Turnpike GP, scoring one point after a 12th place finish. Minty Fresh failed to qualify for their third Grand Prix in a row at the Arctic Circuit, putting the Minty Maniacs in 19th overall at the halfway point of the season.

The Snowballs hosted a party for the teams competing in Marbula One after the Arctic Circuit Grand Prix before they returned home. While at the party, Jelle offered the Minty Maniacs the opportunity to host a five-event special tournament, the Marble League Winter Special. The team unanimously agreed.[1]

2021

Marble League Winter Special

The Minty Maniacs at the starting line of Bobsled

The Minty Maniacs prepared their Wintergreen Stadium in the Himarblelayas with Team Galactic providing some props from Marble League 2020 and the Gliding Glaciers providing their artificial Bobsled track.

The team got off to a slow start. Minty Drizzel could only manage a tenth place finish in the Ice Dash and Minty Flav finished 11th in Snowboard Cross. The tables turned after Minty Fresh delivered a score of 30.24 seconds in Speed Skating, which was enough for third, elevating the team up to eighth in the standings. In the next event, Bobsled, the team managed to finish second and moved up into fifth overall, being one of the seven teams that could win the tournament going into the final event. The Minty Maniacs faced former Ice Hockey champions, the Midnight Wisps, in the Round of 16 in the final event, Ice Hockey, a rematch of the 2018 final. They managed to beat the Wisps before losing to the O'rangers in the quarterfinals, finishing in seventh. This dropped the Maniacs to sixth overall.[1]

Marbula One Season 2

The second half of Marbula One Season 2 turned out to be much better than the first half as Minty Fresh not only qualified for their final three races but they also managed to score points in all three, including an early battle for the lead at Midnight Bay. Minty Drizzel struggled once again. Their best performance of the second half was at the Savage Speedway Grand Prix where they finish in ninth despite a brief run at second earlier in the race. The Minty Maniacs finished Marbula One Season 2 in 18th overall.

In the break between the Misty Mountain Grand Prix and the Savage Speedway Grand Prix the Minty Maniacs proposed a mini tournament to Jelle - eight teams would participate in a five-event tournament and the top two teams would be offered the opportunity to compete in the Marble League 2021 Qualifiers, although this would be kept a secret until the end of the tournament. Jelle agreed and planning for the Herbotamia Invitational started. Each of the main members of the Minty Maniacs picked two teams to invite, inviting the Yarble Yellers, Grape Nuts, Team Plasma, Gliding Glaciers, Balls of Flame, Solar Flares, Black Jacks and the Valiant Violets.

The tournament was held at Pepper Field. The Maniacs invited the Indigo Stars to watch and to promote a partnership charity with the Isle Hyu Conservation Foundation to help preserve the wildlife near the Stars' home. The tournament consisted of Balancing, Funnel Spinning, Sprint, Collision and a race at Minty Mania. At the end of the event, the Solar Flares stood on top of the podium with the Gliding Glaciers in second and the Yarble Yellers in third. Jelle revealed themselves at the end of the competition and offered a spot in the Marble League 2021 Qualifiers to the Solar Flares and Gliding Glaciers.[1]

Marble League 2021

Minty Drizzel volunteered to compete in the Marble League 2021 Practice Race where they finished in 15th. After the race Minty Drizzel went to a falafel restaurant with Indie, Bonbon and Snowstorm. The rest of the team traveled to Felynia for the Marble League 2021 Friendly Round.[1] The team did not have a good start to the Marble League 2021 Friendly Round, finishing in the bottom half for the first three events putting them in last overall. Minty Fresh managed to win the final event, the Sand Rally, but this was not enough to stop them finishing in last place.

The Minty Maniacs failed to live up to the previous year's success, finishing in the bottom half in the first four events, including two of the events they won medals in during Marble League 2020. This dropped the team into last overall, the opposite end of the table to the previous year. Their poor performances continued with bottom half finishes in seven of the next eight events, the only top half finish being a sixth place finish in Event 5, the 5 Meter Relay. This took them to fifteenth overall with four events remaining.

The final four event saw an improvement in the Minty Maniacs' performances, with three of the four finishes being in the top half. The one finish outside the top half was in the Sand Rally where they just missed moving on to the finals in a photo finish. They finished the tournament with a gold medal for Minty Fresh in Marblocross, repeating their success from the previous year's Marathon. This lifted the team into fourteenth overall, a long way from where they finished the previous year.

2022

Marbula One Season 3

The Minty Maniacs were invited to compete in Marbula One Season 3. They accepted, retaining Minty Fresh but replacing Minty Drizzel with Minty Flav. Their start to the season turned out to be much better than the previous one. Minty Flav both qualified and finished 8th in their debut at the Tumult Turnpike Grand Prix, and Minty Fresh got a 5th place finish at the Sleet Street Grand Prix, making a decent comeback after qualifying in 17th.

Trivia

  • In the current Minty Maniacs logo, the M is depicted as two leaves, whilst the white spike in the center represents a stem.
  • The Minty Maniacs are the first team to return to the Marble League series after retiring from the ML to focus on the Hubelino Tournament 2018.
  • The Minty Maniacs are the only team in the Marble League Showdown 2019 that had never failed to qualify for any Marble League edition they have participated in so far, unlike the eight unqualified teams, and they have been in the Marble League before, unlike the Bumblebees, the Hornets, and the Turtle Sliders.
  • The Minty Maniacs are the only team to have won a medal in the Marble League, Marble League Showdown, and Hubelino Tournament.
  • The Minty Maniacs have the record for best three-event start, besting the total of 61 set by the Balls of Chaos in 2018 with their own total of 65 in 2020; and the best five-event start with 83 points.
    • They are the first team to medal in the first three events of a Marble League.
    • They are the third team to get two golds in the first three events. The first two teams were the Balls of Chaos in 2018 and the Savage Speeders in 2019.
  • They are the only non-2016 team to be on the overall podium in Marble League 2020.
  • They are the second team to get 4 gold medals in one Marble League. The first was the Savage Speeders.
  • The Minty Maniacs are one of the only two teams, along with the Bumblebees, to compete in the Marble League, Hubelino Tournament, Marbula One and Marble League Showdown.
