June Winter Competition – Results

The moderators have done another round of voting so here are the top three for June! We had over 25 entries this round. That’s huge!

Like every month, each moderator chose their top three and submitted the votes to me. I then tally them up with each vote getting a score – 15 points for a 1st choice vote, 10 points for 2nd, 5 points for 3rd. The points were added up and the three top points scorers got the wins.

1st Place: Xx_Aidan_xX

In the space of a solid 5 hours of building, Aidan created a beautiful snowglobe! The shaping of this is stunning.

2nd Place: _xXDedukKingXx_

King once again reached for the skies with a large floating castle and a dragon.

3rd Place: TapuKoko888

Koko submitted a very clever Santa’s village. There was so much detail, including a hidden underground Santa’s hideout, and Santa’s sleigh!

Honourable Mentions

Like last month, there were a few players that scored some votes, but missed out on the top spot.

FrankieSquid8 created this cozy winter house with a very nice interior.

Rodger500, built a series of igloos and a roaring campfire amongst the snow.

EpicCracker29, submitted a very nice winter village with a couple of houses, an igloo and a great looking beacon housing.

Finally, ___cosmic__ included a beautiful secluded campsite amongst snow covered trees.

There were so many more entries that were all fantastic builds – a massive congratulations to all who entered. Check out the video above.

The Winter world will be available for a little while longer to get any final Player’s Choice votes in. The top three Players’ Choice builds will get some extra in game cash.

We’ve got one more month to go before the end of the very first season of the Emerald Points competition. The tally so far is:

  • _xXDedukKingXx_ – 35 points
  • Tapukoko888 – 20 points
  • Xx_Aidan_xX – 15 points
  • toothless_spy – 10 points
  • IcyDragon27 – 5 points
  • EvaLPS – 5 points

It’s still anyone’s game! Any of the current placeholders above can sneak in to get a prize at the end of July. It’s getting exciting now. In August we start again with a new season and new prizes!

Congratulations to all! Let’s keep building – we’re looking forward to seeing the Gates!

June Build Competition – Winter

We’ve got one week until the end of May, so it’s time to finish off the treehouses and get stuck into the next Emerald Points build challenge – Winter!

After the May competition has been judged by the moderators, 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. If we need to do a tiebreaker round, a new competition will be designed for those players to compete in.

Need some ideas? Think about snowmen, winter cottages, winter villages, winter sports, igloos, etc. Get creative! You’ll also notice a bit of a change to our lobby world in June. I wonder what it will be?

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 30×30 (a bit smaller than the last one)
  • All entries must be built on the JuneComp 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 July. The June Comp world gate – located on the Warp Ship – will replace the May gate which will close to building at 9pm on Tuesday June 30th.

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

Player’s Choice Votes – Treehouses

Early next week the moderator team will be judging the Treehouse entries, and you can add your votes in too! As the existing gate for the May world will change to June, a new gate for the Treehouse world will be available on the upper deck of the Warp Ship. The Treehouse world will be set to Adventure Mode so no more building will be able to happen, and it will be available for two weeks for players to check out. Voting is done by sending JohnsanGeezo a mail using /mail send JohnsanGeezo.

Players are not allowed to vote for their own entry, and must choose their top 3 builds (you can’t vote for the moderator’s builds). Players are also not allowed to buy or bribe for votes. If you are caught doing this, you will automatically be disqualified from getting Player votes for that month.

The top three entrants in the Players Choice will also get some in-game currency. For more information about the Emerald Points Competition, check out the article all about it!

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