Everything you need to know about the BedWars Tournaments

It’s almost time for the School Holiday BedWars Tournaments! We’ve had a huge amount of registrations, and all of the slots are now full. We’ve got a record amount of entries this time. Here’s all the information you need to know.

All matches (including the Grand Finals now – our bracket system recently added this feature in) will be a double elimination knockout. You must lose twice in order to be out of the competition. If you lose once, you can still come back and win the whole thing. All matches will be played on the Forest Map, and there will be no grace periods – the match will play as default.

This time we are running each tournament over the course of a week:

Solos: 11th to 17th January
Pairs: 18th to 24th January

While both brackets are published, no official pairs matches should occur between the 11th and 17th of January, and no final Solos matches should occur between the 18th and 24th. If you cannot make your match during the allocated dates, you will forfeit the match. It is up to the players to schedule their matches during the correct week, and report back to LightKLibrary, preferably through Discord in #tournaments, or using in-game mail if you do not have Discord access.

What should I report to LightKLibrary?
1. Report if you are unable to schedule a match during the allocated week.
2. Both players must report the results after the match, in either Discord (#tournaments) or using in-game mail.

LightKLibrary will then update the bracket, so the next match can be scheduled.

Can I report to JohnsanGeezo?
Nope, he’ll be on holidays! LightKLibrary is the only one that has access to the brackets.

I can’t read the teams properly on the Pairs bracket!
The teams are:
SuperHeroFlash & lowkeq
Crazycollie1205 & JtripleM
Cram_ & _skip
Ghostrealm2002 & EJ_W
Dark_Dreams & MattyBGamer_
DexterouzDingo & Xx_Aidan_xX
Ghostrealm2000 & ThatGamer762
_erupt & blackfrilled

My teammate can’t make the match!
You are able to play the Pairs match solo if your teammate cannot make it.

Are you sure we can’t delay the matches we can’t play to a different week?
Yes. You must complete your matches in their designated week. This is so results and prizes can be finalised in a timely fashion, and stops a lot of confusion.

Can we use a different map, like Arena or Winter?
No, all matches must be played on Forest, so it’s fair for everyone.

Can we have longer grace periods before PvP starts?
No, the default game settings must be used. All matches must be played fair and according to the rules. If exploits or cheats are seen to be used, the player using them will instantly forfeit the match, and the player will be placed in jail according to server rules.

Can another player (registered or not registered) play instead?
No. Only the registered players are able to play. No substitutes will be allowed.

Ok, what are the brackets?
Here they are! Make sure you check the matches properly.

Good luck!

December and Emerald Points Season 2 Results

That’s it! The year is over! The December competition is complete, the votes are in and have been tallied, and it’s also the end of the second Emerald Points season!

We had some really stunning entries this month, when we asked you to build something Christmassy. On to the results.

1st Place: Crazycollie1205

Collie went to town creating a beautiful looking town centre, complete with an ice skating rink, a couple of house façades, Christmas tree, presents, and Santa and the reindeer flying overhead. There is so much detail in here, it’s stunning.

2nd Place: DexterouzDingo

In true DexterouzDingo form, the build was a tall one – so tall it didn’t fit in one image! The base is a stunning looking house, fully decorated inside, and the top, joined by a very large candy cane pole…

…is what appears to be Santa’s outpost, with some elves running around!

3rd Place: JtripleM

Finally, JtripleM created a very nice looking snow globe and snowman, decorated with holly and presents around the outside.

Honourable Mention

We only have one honourable mention this round, with Countdodododo scoring some votes, but not enough to make the podium finish. Well done Count! This Santa Airport is really clever.

Emerald Points Season 2 Results

That brings us to the end of the second Emerald Points Season!

Here’s the results:

JtripleM – 50 pts
DexterouzDingo – 30 pts

Congratulations to JtripleM, DexterouzDingo and Crazycollie1205 for taking out season 2! This season has seen some massive entries and stunning builds. Congratulations to the rest of our points scorers. We’re all very excited for Season 1, 2021!

JtripleM takes home a brand new Logitech gaming mouse, DexterouzDingo gets a $30 JB HiFi voucher, and Crazycollie1205 gets a $20 JB HiFi voucher.

I’ll be in touch with the winners in the coming days to tee up some prize collection times.

Thanks for a Minecraft filled 2020!

2020 is done and dusted, and I think a lot of people are glad it’s over. On behalf of the LibraryCraft Staff team, I’d like to say a massive thank you to all our players and families for supporting the server by either playing on it, promoting it to friends, and generally getting excited about it! We had a massive first year of LibraryCraft, and we’ve got so much more planned for 2021.

From a small server for a bunch of CoderDojo kids to the state wide experience we are today, I cannot thank you personally enough for getting on board. Here’s a few fun facts for you:

  • 283 whitelisted players across 39 local government areas all over WA
  • Over 180 entries during 9 months of Monthly Creative Competitions
  • Over 1 year, 2 months and 2 weeks of continuous play since January 1, 2020
  • Almost 40 worlds created and used over 12 months, with almost half still accessible to players

We’ve seen a new Survival system added, new mini games and player created Creative worlds, highly successful school holiday tournaments, competitions, and plenty of new friendships formed and laughs had! I’ll be preparing our first annual report in the coming days so if you are interested in finding out more about the 2020 LibraryCraft has had, stay tuned. I’ll post a link to it here when it’s ready.

For now, take a look through some of the images for the year. Thanks again for the support, and bring on 2021!

January Build Competition – Superhero/Supervillain Bases

It’s 2021 very soon, and that means time to announce the next competition! We’ve got a bit of time to finish off the December Christmas theme, so you’ve got a bit of time to get it done.

To kick off a new season we’re starting 2021 off with Superhero and Supervillain bases! This was the one that came so close to winning the player’s choice poll back in November. If you’ve never entered a Monthly competition before, this is the perfect opportunity to do it as the slate has been wiped clean.

We want to see some amazing bases – think about your favourite heroes or villains. What would they have in their bases?

Rules

  • All building must be in Creative Mode
  • This is a Single Player Competition – Team builds are not allowed
  • Builders can claim ONE plot only
  • All entries must be built on the January Comp world
  • Designs must be your own – no copying from online!

Judging will take place during the first week of February 2021. The January Comp world gate – located on the Warp Ship – will replace the December gate which will close to building at 9pm on Thursday December 31st.

The gate will open on the Warp Ship on the morning of January 1st, so get planning and designing now – you’ll only have a month to build. Bring on 2021!

Reporting Results

All results must be sent to LightKLibrary in the #tournaments channel on Discord, or in game. Please do not send them to JohnsanGeezo (me) as I’ll be on holidays and won’t be around for the tournaments!

November Creative Competition – Results

The November Sea Monsters competition is done. Time for the results! There were some more really spectacular entries this month.

1st Place: JtripleM

Three in a row! This time around JtripleM has created a monstrous kraken emerging from the ocean. It’s pretty spectacular!

2nd Place: DexterouzDingo

He’s back! Dex has returned from a bit of school focus time (well done mate) to build a massive dragon/octopus hybrid getting into a sailing ship. In classic Dex style, it’s massive…

3rd Place: Countdodododo

Count has done it! Top three! After a few times of being very close, he’s made the top three with a brilliant build of Poseidon battling a huge sea serpent in a storm. It’s brilliant!

Well done to all of our winners! Your prizes will be added to your accounts. We also had a number of entries that got votes, but didn’t quite get there. Here they are…

December Build Competition – Christmas

I can’t believe we’re announcing December’s competition already, but we are! We’ve got a bit of time to finish off the November Sea Monsters theme, so get moving if you haven’t quite finished.

This month is pretty obvious – it’s December, so we’re going with Christmas. It’s also a big month, as it’s the end of the Second 2020 Emerald Points season! There’s a lot on the line…

Rules

  • All building must be in Creative Mode
  • This is a Single Player Competition – Team builds are not allowed
  • Builders can claim ONE plot only
  • All entries must be built on the December Comp world
  • Designs must be your own – no copying from online!

Judging will take place during the first week of January 2021. The December Comp world gate – located on the Warp Ship – will replace the November gate which will close to building at 9pm on Monday November 30th.

The gate will open on the Warp Ship on the morning of December 1st, so get planning and designing now – you’ll only have a month to build. We’ve also got some really exciting competitions planned for 2021…

Introducing The Broken Sky

We’ve had a few questions from players recently around what to do with their in game balances. I tasked the player group on Discord to come up with a solution, and a solution they have found! Introducing The Broken Sky…

The Broken Sky is a floating island world linked with NewSurvival (your inventories will carry across). There are three sizes of island – small, medium and large. These islands can be purchased with your in game cash, one per player.

Small: $50,000
Medium: $75,000
Large: $100,000

Small
Medium
Large

Now, you may be saying “that’s a lot of money!”. Well, you’d be correct. It is a lot of money, but there’s a lot of players that can currently afford it, and it doesn’t take a great deal of effort to save up, so it’s definitely within reach for everyone. How? Trade, sell, mine, farm, and sell some more. Items can either be sold to other players through the Trade Islands, or to the server using /shop.

This world is not like the other worlds though – there’s some specific rules.

  • One island per player
  • The world is permission based – you can only access the world if you have paid for an island
  • No claiming on this world at all – your island is pre-claimed. There are also other communal islands around (check out the video below). These are not to be claimed at all. Anything built on these worlds should be available to everyone, and not protected by a claim.
  • Gather resources on the NewSurvival world – there are resources on The Broken Sky, but try not to decimate the other islands.
  • If you fall off the edge of an island, you run the risk of not getting your items back. Each player gets two free passes to get their items back
    • If another player accidentally pushes you off
    • If you make a mistake and fall off
    • After that, you must pay $1000 to get your items back. Be careful! Only have on you what you need, or what you’re willing to lose. Think of this world as Skyblock. Don’t carry everything!
  • Feel free to create bridges between worlds, but we want to see some nice bridges! No dirt or cobble bridging. Make them look detailed.

We’re really excited about this world – it’s been fun already! It does take a bit of time to get in though – it’s dependent on permissions being allocated to your account, so it’s not instant. Please be patient! Check out the video above for a sneak peek of some of the other islands that can be found (using an elytra of course).

If there’s any questions about The Broken Sky, get in touch with us via email, in game, or through Discord. Happy exploring!

October Creative Competition – Results

The October Amusement Park competition is complete, the votes are in and it’s results time! This month’s entries were just awesome – everyone should be really proud of their work. In the coming month or so we’ll be combining the builds to form a large Amusement Park for NewSurvival. It should be great!

1st Place: JTripleM

JTripleM has gone two for two! After a win in the September competition, he’s backed it up with another this month, creating a beautiful rollercoaster using the new warped oak from the Nether. It’s even got a loop! If only it could work for real…

2nd Place: CrazyCollie1205

CrazyCollie1205 created an absolutely stunning Bounty’s Revenge style swinging boat ride. The detail in this is just beautiful!

3rd Place: _frankie8

Frankie went with a brilliant looking Nether style build, complete with a rollercoaster, bouncy castle, water slide and food vendors!

Well done to all of our winners! Your prizes will be awarded when you are on next. We also had a number of entries that got votes, but didn’t quite get there. Stay tuned for when we finish the final Amusement Park!
