Do you think we should have a buildoff each month or is it a bad idea?

Yes to the BuildOff or No

Post by MrShatang on 7/10/2012, 12:21 pm

Hey guys I wanted to see if this should be implemented into the server as a monthly thing. If you don't know what a buildoff is, it is where there is a certain theme, and you have to build anything that relates to that theme in a certain period of time. If we were going to implement this we would have to think of a timelimit that is reasonable. Anyways, what do you think? Also whoevers build is the best will win a prize!

I like this idea. It's easy to set up, and everyone can join the fun of building something (unlike for example GH where only permanent and guest members of the team build stuff)

If this will happen we will need building plots. Also, maybe this should be implemented in 1.3 because all the plots we make will go to waste in less then a month.

I have basically decided to implement this when 1.3 comes out and the plots are to be 64 x 64. Now I have a question: How many plots do you think I should make?

Doesn't 64x64 seem a bit large? Can't it be like 30x30? It'd be plenty big enough, and you'd be able to fit in more plots for more contesters. As for the how many, no idea.

30 x 30 is a decent size for most people. But there might be the one or two or three etc people that really need that 64 x 64. Believe me, I am not thinking small builds for the BuildOff. I am thinking huge creative ideas.

This puts people at a lower rank at a disadvantage. For example, someone who is veteran can spawn any material they need, while a guest only has wooden tools. I would assume that to solve this, everything would have to be legit. Also, I think that a 32x32 plot would be plenty big. Anything else would seem to bottom heavy.

If everything is legit, it makes the build more interesting seeing how people do with limited resources, instead of creative mode building. Obviously, though, the date should be announced well in advance so people can start gathering blocks.

Well don't worry the rule would be it would all have to be legit.
Anyways the rules will be:
-The building take place on the Monday before promotions. Your time limit you will have will be until after promotions. After promotion the judges t will have decided throughout that last day and will announce the winner after promotions after everyone settles down (because we all know promotions are one heck of a challenge with all the screaming lol). The winner will then receive his price like money,diamond,etc.
Now so all of you have enough time to collect your materials for the theme. Right after the winner of last Buildoff is announced. We will then announce the theme for next BuildOff so you have basically 3 weeks to collect your materials and plan your build. There will be four judges and two all already reserved for myself and bandityogo.
Also, a lot of people have been suggesting smaller plots but I personally wont change it now. It will be set at 64 x 64 unless I see that nobody is using up that much space. Please don't argue about the smaller plots right now because I will not change it unless I see like I said.
I have decided to make 6 plots which means 6 people per month.

Here is the Format to apply for being a contestant in the Buildoff:

Minecraft Username:



Yep I know it is just the username but personally for this I don't really care who you are or what rank you are. I just need to know what your username is so I know who is going to build.
This is not really going to be like a GH or WS because the judges don't have to work weekly, all we have to do is build the plots and choose what build we like best on the Promotion Day. Just tell me in game that you want to be a judge and I will right your name on a piece of paper. After one week I will then put them in a hat and draw them out. First two to be picked will be your judges.
One last thing, this will not start until 1.3.
Thanks -Shatang;)

6 people per month?! That's ridiculous. This is really going to take off, and people are going to be mad that they have to wait 6 or 7 months to have another go. If a giant build-off stadium must be built, then it must be built. You can always find helpers

So how many people should I add?

I would start off with 15-20 contestants the first time and if it is a fail, bring it down. If it is an epic win, bring it up. I assure you you could find 15 people to do the build-off.

Sure I can find that many people but I will need loads of people help building the plots. That will also take up a lot of space.

As I said in-game, I won't be a judge for Buildoff (I want to be a contestant too!), but I will gladly help make the plots. Honestly, I need a project to work on atm. I'm a bit bored when I'm on, there seems to be nothing to do.

Make it at least 20 people per-month. This has to be a serverwide thing, not just a small group. I'm sure some admins/mods would help you WE if this got big. I'm looking forward to this.

Also, if you need a thread to be a mini-games sticky, just ask me.

If we were going to make 20 people included , we would indeed need WE and I will need thread soon but not just yet.
