Unfortunately the tournament had to be postponed by a couple weeks
due to scheduling difficulties among
contestants and organizers. We apologize to anyone who had to change their plans to attend!
The tournament will be back in a couple weeks with bigger and better prizes.
Saturday, June 14th
5–8 PM PST
(8 PM–11 PM EST)
We are happy to announce our first creative speed-building tournament! Four players will show off
their creative skills in a series of timed challenges, where they'll be paired up to quickly create
A random theme will be given in the beginning of each match. Contestants will have 5 minutes to plan
their creation, then 40 minutes to build it. The audience will choose their favorite build after each
match, and the ultimate winner will receive some pretty good prizes!
The winner will receive these sexy prizes:
- A Steam game of their choice (up to $30), courtesy of Hylloch.
- A personal world of any size on our Freebuild server.
- A permanent customized name on all our servers.
- A custom title on our forums.
Each match will have a random theme, chosen from the following list:
- Alien architecture
- Ancient civilizations
- City scenes
- Flora and fauna
- Medieval times
- Microscopic world
- Military / War
- Myths and legends
- Oversize food
- Prehistoric times
- The future
- Wild west
This is the boring but necessary long version of the rules, which should answer any questions and ambiguities.
- Contestants will be picked in order in which they signed up. Sign-ups will be accepted
until end of Friday, June 13th (GMT).
- Tournament will be double-elimination (5 matches).
First round (2 matches) will be played first. Winners will then to play against each other
in the upper bracket (1 match), and losers will play against each other in the lower bracket
(1 match). Winners of the upper and lower brackets will meet in the final round (1 match).
- Theme for each match will be different, and will be randomly chosen and announced to contestants
at the start of the match. Contestants will have 5 minutes to plan, then 40 minutes to build
their creation within a designated 50×50×50 space. Building is NOT allowed before
the 40-minute timer starts, or after the timer elapses. Remaining time will be announced at the
30, 20, 10, 5, and 1 minute marks. Contestants are NOT allowed to use WorldEdit commands,
auto-clickers, any build automation tools for the duration of their match. Spectators must NOT
interfere with the contestants. Contestants may request a short break, at which point both
players must stop building.
- Winner will be decided by a vote of other players. Only players ranked builder or above can
vote. Contestants who have not yet been eliminated may NOT vote. Vote is done by sending a
message to the designated admin: either in-game, on IRC, or via forums. Votes will be accepted
for one hour after end of the match. Vote of the designated admin will be used to break any
ties. The result of a match will be announced as soon as voting period ends. If a contestant
cannot make it to their match and rescheduling is impossible, their opponent will be
declared winner by default.
