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.

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?

  • This is a Single Player Competition – Team builds are not allowed
  • Builders can claim ONE plot only

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!

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…

  • All building must be in Creative Mode
  • This is a Single Player Competition – Team builds are not allowed
  • Builders can claim ONE plot only

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!

November Build Competition – Sea Monsters

Let me just say from the start – the October Build Competition will be very hard to judge. We have some incredible entries! We’re really looking forward to moving the builds over to create a full Amusement Park on NewSurvival for people to explore.

Next month we’re also planning on moving builds to NewSurvival, with Sea Monsters. We want some big monsters to inhabit the waters around NewSurvival Spawn Island and Trade Island.

This month we also did things a little different – we asked players to vote for their next competition through our new voting plugin on the server. It was between Sea Monsters and Superhero/Supervillain bases and it was close. Really close – only one vote separated it, and we had around 40 votes! Superhero and villain bases will feature soon…

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 November Comp world
  • Designs must be your own – no copying from online!

As always, judging will take place during the first week of December. The November Comp world gate – located on the Warp Ship – will replace the October gate which will close to building at 9pm on Saturday October 31st.

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

September Creative Competition – Results

The September Space competition is complete, the votes are in and have been tallied, and it’s time for the results. We had some really interesting entries this month, with a lot of Star Wars entries!

1st Place: JTripleM

JTripleM gave the server a bit of a masterclass with Star Wars builds – the amount of detail was absolutely staggering! J’s X-wing has also been used in another world, so well done J!

2nd Place: DexterouzDingo

Back and fresh with a new name, DexterouzDingo (formerly known as _xXDedukKingXx_) created not only a Star Wars battle in the skies, but a full landscape as well! This vibrant and flowing landscape was a lot of fun to explore.

3rd Place: MindOfCamo

Sticking again with the Star Wars theme, MindOfCamo built a battle between an X-wing and a TIE Fighter, complete with a frozen explosion. The use of grindstones in the wings was very clever.

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.

October Build Competition – Amusement Park

The September Build Competition looks really exciting. I’m looking forward to taking a proper look through – there’s so much Star Wars!

Next month, we’re planning something fun, and we want your input. This is how you give it to us! The competition theme is Amusement Park.

As you have hopefully seen by now, the Survival worlds on the server will be reset. This allows us to do some new and fun things on the new world, including creating our very own theme park!

Whatever you would see at an amusement park is fair game – rides, sideshow alley, food areas, the entrance gate, whatever! Selected entries will then be moved to a new amusement park on the new Survival World.

Just like last time, click the sign on the corner of a plot to claim it. It will cost you $5. Please don’t remove the sign! It spams the backend when there’s a sign missing.

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 October Comp world
  • Designs must be your own – no copying from online!

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

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