Gaming District Build Competition!
Febuary 5th - Febuary 19th
Location: Gaming district at Spawn
There is a new game master in town! (Yes Pie I'm stealing your job....) The last build competition ended about a month ago, which means a new one is long overdue at this point. For Febuary's build competition we have decided to focus on one of the most neglected districts around spawn: The Gaming District! Whether you build something redstoney, aesthetically pleasing or a combination of both does not matter. The winner will be whoever creates the most original and fun experience in the gaming district.
However, there can't be a fair competition without a few rules:
Builds may be any size, as long as it is less than 70x70 blocks. (Height does not matter.)
Builds must be constructed in the gaming district. (If you do not know where that is located feel free to ask either me, @EarthCube or any other member of the Ministry of the Interior.)
There may only be one entry per person and one person per entry. (You can build more games if you like, but you can only enter one build into the competition.)
Any designs (redstone or otherwise) that are directly copied or based on designs that can be found on YouTube or the test server must be visibly marked as such and the creator of the design must agree to its use.
Builds must be lit up! Judges are not liable for any damages done by creepers.
Anyone found in violation of these rules will be disqualified after one warning .
Builds will be judged by a panel of three judges (@Kaddaschatzi, @EarthCube, @Pandeoo) based on:
3 Points: Build blends in with the environment. There is a clear effort visible to make the game not only functional but also pretty. The techniques used are applied correctly and in the right places.
2 Points: Build shows efforts to create an exterior. There is no open redstone or abrupt terraforming. There is an abrupt change between the build and the environment. There is little effort to make it blend in with the environment.
1 Point: Build sticks out like a sore thumb. Redstone is exposed. There is little to no effort visible to make the build fit in with the surrounding area.
3 Points: The game has a clear goal which is explained and obvious from the description. It is possible to win (or finish) the game. The redstone used creates little lag (it does not impact the game) and is easy to operate.
2 Points: The game lacks a clear goal. The explanation given is brief and does not answer what the purpose of the game is. The redstone used is complicated to operate and does not work reliably.
1 Point: The game cannot be described as a game. There are no rules (or a description). It is not possible to finish the game. The redstone used can not be operated from the game lobby and it barely functions
3 Points: The entry is original. It inspires the player to play it over and over again. It does not get boring after the first try.
2 Points: The entry is creative even though the idea is not new. The player is inspired to play it more than once.
1 Point: The entry is neither creative nor original. The design can be found everywhere on YouTube, and it is not fun to play after the first try.
Judge's personal opinion:
1 - 3 Points (based on the experience while play testing the game).
Monday, Febuary 19th will be the last day to work on the entries. Judging will begin on Tuesday. The winners will be annouced the following weekend. Now to answer the question everyone is dieing to ask. What are the prizes going to be? Well it will be worth it!
1st place: 64 Diamond blocks, 1 beacon
2nd place: 32 Diamond blocks, 32 shulker shells
3rd place: 16 Diamond blocks, 1 enchanted elytra
