Update:
  • Server found.. We will be using VanessaE's server for this event.
  • If you're wishing to take part, please tell me, and also log onto VanessaE's Server and then ask for permissions in her forum post.
  • Arena being made; People can come and help, as long as you can join the server easily.
Thanks everyone.

Edit:

I have this idea, that each challenge there would be a twist, so one could be 5 mins longer, and so on.
  • Do you like this idea?
  • If so, I'll need Twist ideas too.

As a follow up to Obiewan's posts, I'm happy to host this on my server, with the understanding that griefing in any form is strictly forbidden outside of the areas Obiewan has designated for this event. I leave it up to him to decide upon the rules used within his areas.

Have fun!

Whenever you are available. I will be doing one soon, maybe tomorrow. We'll have to agree to different times, and have to consider time zones.

The one thing, which is needed for you to compete, is a challenge idea (What you want to build).

I want to build an underground house my favorite and can we do it during the week. Maybe 12:00/noon with my place being in the Central Time zone.

How about we have a couple challenges a day for the entire week so if someone cant make it one day then they can make it the best. Also i think that you should make a list of stuff you can use.

You can use any block that is in the server. No restrictions..

And sorry, I didn't explain this fully. I will upload the videos to youtube, and you'll comment either "Vote Challenger 1" or "Vote Challenger 2", and I will count the votes myself to see who wins.

And yes, I like your couple of Challenges a week idea, sounds good, now all we need is the competitors.

EDIT: Do you have skype? And also this question is forwarded to anyone else who is interested in participating.

Yes you can still participate if you don't have skype. But, if you do have it, we could do a voice quick build challenge, where you can hear both competitors, and they are generally better.

And yes, Monday would work for me.. So: 12:00 Central Time Zone/18:00 GMT and the build is Underground House! :D

Nope. I video myself building, and I entertain the audience whilst me building. Then when the time is over, I go around my build showing what it is then I go around your build, and if I can't work out what it is, i'll ask you to tell me, and explain it a bit.

There is one arena on VanessaE's server, really far away from the spawn and any other construction, all you have to do is fly to me and you'll find the arena. Each build is destroyed by me and the arena is re-done for the next competitor.

And no, that was just a sample picture of the arena, and it looks nothing like the final arena which I have built.

Thanks for that, just checked and removed all the obsidian (-.-) underneath the arena and re-filled it. Did you do anything else?

no i was originally filling it with stone but it was taking way too slow so i used water and lava. also i think that you should make it all stone with the uppermost layer being grass because having dirt all underneath means more digging and less placing. and more digging and placing means less time to actually build what you want. Also can i reserve the spot in competition for tomorrow since i came up with the underground house idea.

"You are able to build in the air and go outside with your build, but not into the opponent's side."
can we build up but be connected to the ground and i am going to do something to your walls underground to tell people where the edge is.

You can't build into your opponent's side, but you can build anywhere else, apart from the ground outside your area, but you can in the air. I'm on too, we can make adjustments now.

**Place reserved** Still 12:00/noon your time?
