Season Changeovers and New Competitions

It’s the end of July tomorrow, which means the end of our first Emerald Points Competition season! It all comes down to this. We’ve had an amazing few months of builds – Ships, Treehouses, Winter and Gates. Next season will be just as awesome, and the points tally will reset, but there’s also a few other big things coming up! We’ll let everyone know who wins mid way through August.

The July world will be changed to Adventure mode on Friday night, so make sure you get your last changes in! The August world will go live on Saturday morning.

In case you forgot, the prizes for the end of Season 1 are:

  • 1st Prize: 1x Steelseries Apex 3 Gaming keyboard
  • 2nd Prize: 1x $50 JB HiFi Voucher
  • 3rd Prize: 1x $30 JB HiFi Voucher

August Creative Competition – Underwater Bases

The August world will also have a new method of claiming plots of land – similar to how shops are purchased in the Trade Hall. Right click an available plot’s sign to give yourself access to the plot. Please limit yourself to one plot only.

Make sure you submit a question for the WA Maritime Museum Science team to be eligible to win one of the amazing prizes they’ve provided. This is a very unique opportunity to ask questions of the team who have been to the deepest parts of WA’s coastline, so make sure you don’t waste it! The first wave of questions are due on Sunday August 2nd, with another wave due mid August, in case you missed out.

Survival Build Competition

Tomorrow also means the end of the Survival Build Competition. It’s been around 5 months since we started it and we have some amazing entries!

From Friday night the Build Competition Entry world will be set to Adventure mode so changes can’t be made. This means that any home that’s used as a regular base needs to be moved to the regular Survival world. Please contact JohnsanGeezo in game or Discord to get this sorted out.

The prizes for the Survival Build Competition are:

  • 1st Prize: $50 JB HiFi Voucher
  • 2nd & 3rd Prizes: 1x $25 JB HiFi Vouchers each

LibraryCraft Head Games

August also brings a new competition – the Head Games! Each mob will now have a chance (some much rarer than others) of dropping their head on death. Registration costs one diamond, and you need to name it with your name (using a nametag) before dropping it down the central hopper at the Head Games Headquarters (the HGHQ). JohnsanGeezo will also be adding in one diamond BLOCK to the winnings pot for every player that enters. So far we have 8 players, so that’s a lot of diamonds!

The competition will go until the end of November, and the prizes will go to 1st, 2nd and 3rd. All heads must be submitted into your own hopper, located on the second floor of the HGHQ. Thanks to Vinemon for creating the building!

Bring on Season 2 and all those new things!
