April Ship Competition – Results

It’s May 1st, which means the April Ship Competition is closed, and Treehouses in May has begun! Here’s the top three as voted by the moderators, and the rest of the completed builds. We had 12 entries, as well as a few fun ones from the moderators, which is great!

Each moderator chose their top three and submitted the votes to me. I then tallied them up and gave each vote a score – 15 points for a 1st choice vote, 10 points for 2nd, and 5 points for 3rd. The points were added up and three top points-scorers got the wins. It was very close!

1st Place: _xXDedukKingXx_

2nd Place: toothless_spy

3rd Place: IcyDragon27

Congratulations to our first three winners! You’ll get some in-game currency and our first ever Emerald Points!

Honourable Mentions

These players scored some votes, but missed out on the top spot, some by just a whisker!

XxAidanator07xX – The size of this one was massive! A very late entry too…
TapuKoko888 – we loved the extra detail put into this one – kelp on the seabed, and ominous black sails.
TapuFini888 – our first submarine!
Minxinspace – I love the red cross on the sail.

And here are the rest of the completed entries.

BubblesBudgie – another submarine!
CreepersSuk – loving that smoke out of the chimney
EvaLPS – a capsized boat with survivors! Very clever.
JJBonezZz – our only modern warship entry
KKyogre59 – our only entry with ‘working’ engines

A huge congratulations to everyone who entered. You can really build! We’re looking forward to the May entries. Bring on those treehouses!

May Build Competition – Treehouses

Just under one week until May! That means the end of the April Ships challenge, and the start of a new one for May in the Emerald Competition! If you’re still not sure what I’m on about, read the April post to get up to speed.

The big thing to note for this month is that at the end of May, we’ll be giving away some JB HiFi vouchers to the three players with the most Emerald Points so far – $25 for 1st, and $10 each for 2nd and 3rd. These will be given away at the start of June, to give us time to judge.

Anyway, this month we want to see your best Treehouses!

The competition for May goes from Friday May 1st, to Sunday May 31st. You might also notice our new Monthly Competition world. Isn’t it nice? We’ll be using this one from now on.

Rules

  • All building must be in Creative Mode – there are no height restrictions (aside from the vanilla ceiling)
  • This is a Single Player Competition – Team builds are not allowed
  • Builders can claim ONE plot only
  • Plots are 40×40
  • All entries must be built on the May Comp world
  • Builds must not go over the paths – this includes tree canopies
  • No removing or modifying the paths
  • Designs must be your own – no copying from online

Judging will take place during the first week of June. The May Comp world gate – located on the Warp Ship – will replace the April gate and will close to players at 9pm on Sunday April 31st. All players still in the world at this time will be teleported back to spawn.

The gate will re-open for the June competition during the morning of June 1st.

Winners will be notified by an in-game mail sent to all players. In order to claim your prize, you must log in so one of the mods can pay you.

End of Season Prizes

Again, at the end of the season (the end of July), the player with the most Emerald Points since April will be deemed the winner, and will receive a new keyboard!

Specifically, the Steelseries Apex 3 Water Resistant Gaming Keyboard. Second place will take home a $50 JB HiFi Voucher, with third taking away a $25 voucher.

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

Get in touch on Discord or in game if you have questions! Happy treehouse building…

April Build Competition – Ships!

We’re a week out from April – next week our very first monthly build competition kicks off! If you haven’t seen the Competitions page yet, here’s what will happen.

The start of every month brings a new, month-long, themed Creative mode build competition. We’ll give out prizes to the top three entries, as well as Emerald Points. Importantly, all monthly competitions are single player entries only. Unfortunately entries cannot be submitted by a pair of players, or a team, as there needs to be one winner.

With 15 points for a win, 10 for second and 5 points for third, these get tallied up each month. Seasons will normally go for 6 months – January to June, and July to December. During 2020, we’ll do the seasons differently – April to July, and August to December. Whoever has the most points at the end of each season takes home some prizes! But that’s not all.

Prizes

At the end of each month, the month’s winner will get some in-game currency – $5000 for a win, $2500 for second, and $1000 for 3rd.

After 3 months, we’ll give away some JB HiFi vouchers to the three players with the most Emerald Points – $25 for 1st, and $10 each for 2nd and 3rd.

At the end of the 6 month season, there are the grand prizes – gear like gaming keyboards and mice for the winner, and vouchers for second and third places.

So, onto this season. As the title suggests, we’re going to be making ships!

The competition for April goes from Wednesday April 1st, to Thursday April 30th.

Rules

  • All building must be in Creative Mode
  • This is a Single Player Competition – Team builds are not allowed
  • Ships can be any style or size, but MUST be contained in a single plot
  • Builders can claim ONE plot only
  • Plots are 30×60 water plots (see the video below)
  • All entries must be built on the April Comp world
  • Builds must not go over the jetty borders
  • Designs must be your own – no copying from online

Judging will take place during the first week of May. The April Comp world gate, located on the Warp Ship, will close to players at 9pm on Thursday April 30th. All players still in the world at this time will be teleported back to spawn.

The gate will re-open for the May competition during the morning of May 1st.

Winners will be notified by an in-game mail sent to all players. In order to claim your prize, you must log in so JohnsanGeezo can pay you.

After the competition is complete, the builds will be moved to the new Survival Dock being built on the Survival world, so everyone can explore them.

End of Season Prizes

At the end of the season (the end of July), the player with the most Emerald Points will be deemed the winner, and will receive a new keyboard!

Specifically, the Steelseries Apex 3 Water Resistant Gaming Keyboard. Second place will take home a $50 JB HiFi Voucher, with third taking away a $25 voucher.

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