Quicksilvers are a former Marble League team introduced in Marble League 2017. The team is named after Sand Marble Rally competitor Quicksilver. They were represented by Argent, Mercurial, Quix, and Silvery.

The Quicksilvers were one of the competing teams in the 2015 Surculo tournament, where they finished third overall. They, however, declined the invitation to Marble League 2016, opting instead to compete in the next year's Surculo. That invitation was eventually given to the Chocolatiers, who finished fifth.[1]

The Quicksilvers were also the runners-up of the 2016 Surculo to the Jungle Jumpers. Both teams were invited to participate in Marble League 2017, and they both managed to qualify for the main tournament.[2]

However, following a last-place finish in Marble League 2017, and a failure to qualify the next year, the team retired.

Marble League 2017 Edit

The Quicksilvers had a mediocre start to the Marble League 2017 Qualifiers round, finishing 10th in the Relay Race event, but jumped to 7th after Quix finished 6th in the Sand Race event. Later on, they performed poorly in the next event, Block Pushing, and were in danger of missing out on Marble League 2017. Thankfully, Argent performed very well in the final event, Funnel Race, and finished 2nd. The Quicksilvers qualified for Marble League 2017 by finishing 5th.

Main Tournament Edit

The Quicksilvers, however, performed poorly in Marble League 2017 and didn't go anywhere above 14th throughout the tournament. They concluded the only Marble League edition they participated in at the bottom of the ladder with 58 points and no medals.

The closest thing the team did to winning a medal was in the Archery event, where they had surprisingly strong performance and finished fourth, but dropped to dead last in the standings thanks to the Jungle Jumpers' gold medal from that event.

Retirement Edit

During the Amazing Maze Marble Race, it was announced that the Quicksilvers were retiring from Marble League. This was because they had lost interest in the competition due to their disappointing performance in Marble League 2017 and their failure to qualify for Marble League 2018.[3]
