Hello Raiders!​

Although this was not planned in the original event schedule, we would like to host this optional event to thank each and every one of you for your support for the new map. Without further ado, let's get into the event!

To enter this competition, your team must pay a 100 gold fee that will go towards the pot. You will then be paired up against another team who you will fight with in a random open arena with no battle rules. This means you can build anything you want, use any item you please, and spawn in any mobs necessary to help you win. The winning team will then be paired up with another winning team in a bracket style order. The final 2 teams will receive a portion of the gold pot (25% for second place, and 75% for first).

The matchings will be drawn at random and will be posted a week prior to the event, which will take place on Saturday, February 25th starting at 1pm EST / 6pm UTC. The competition will be in a bracket style, and we will progress to the next rounds immediately.

To enter: please leave your team name below, and message me in game to pay the entry fee. I will be keeping track of all the payments and announce the final pot at the time of the event.

Rules / Notes:
  • If you warp out, you are disqualified
  • Leaving the arena will also disqualify you
  • Teams will be of 8, if your other members cannot attend, too bad! Your team will have to fight the other team regardless of sizes
  • You can only be on one team! If you try to cheat this, then you will be disqualified
Good luck!

ENTERED TEAMS: Hype

Thanks for all your entries in last month’s build contest – it was a great success!
__________
We got a ton of great maps for last month’s contest, and hopefully you’ll see some of them in the future. This month’s theme is Medieval, and you’ll be able to find more information on that below… but first, results!

[​IMG]
In third place is @Fordale's Phleora, for the Smoke Monster minigame! We all loved the beautiful pattern she made, it’s given it a really different feel to previous Smoke Monster maps, but we think it’ll fit in perfectly. In any case, she must be doing something right, because she won Builder of the Month too! For her efforts, Fordale wins $10 to spend in the Brawl store and an extra map. Congrats!

[​IMG]
In second place is @Birdgirl's Stadt, for the Red Light, Green Light minigame! Bird’s a veteran CTF mapmaker and an ex Build mod to boot, so it comes as no surprise that she’s great at Party maps as well. Stadt comes as a much-needed update for the original RLGL map, with rows of beautiful houses lining the outside. For coming in second place, Birdgirl wins $15 to spend in the Brawl store and two extra maps. Nice work!

[​IMG]
And finally, the moment you’ve all been waiting for… first place goes to @NateTheDerp's Mario Circuit, for the Horse Race minigame! We loved this map: not only does it fit in perfectly with the Party theme, it looks absolutely stunning. A well-deserved first place for a great map. For winning the contest, Nate has earned himself $20 to spend in the Brawl store, 3 free maps and a Contest Winner forum medal. Great job Nate!

Thanks to all who took part!

This month’s contest theme is MEDIEVAL.
If there’s one thing you guys like to build it’s medieval stuff – believe me, I’ve noticed! – and Minecraft very much lends itself to the medieval style. After last month’s competition for dedicated Party maps we thought we’d get right back to our creative roots and have a competition where there’s no limit on what you can or can’t do. Get creative! You could make a giant castle, or a sprawling city, maybe even get some fantasy stuff in there and make a giant mythical creature. Impress us!

There will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Winners will receive special prizes and will be posted in the “Sponsored events” thread under the News & Info shortly after the contest ends.

All entries (teams and their map ID) will be listed in this thread for viewing purposes. This will also make it easier to detect plagiarism.

Don’t forget that you’ll now be posting your submissions in the Build Showcases subforum. This means that, if you want to, you’ll be able to make a beautiful post showing every part of your build instead of having to squeeze it into one reply on a thread. And on top of that, by posting there you’ll be in with a chance of winning Builder of the Month! More information here!

PRIZES

1st place: $20 to spend in the Brawl store, 3 FREE maps and a sweet contest winner medal!
2nd place: $15 to spend in the Brawl store and 2 FREE maps!
3rd place: $10 to spend in the Brawl store and 1 FREE map!

[​IMG]

Connect to MinecraftBuild.com and type /create to make a map, then get building! If you've used up all your maps, feel free to ask me and I'll give you member perms on a flat map.

Once you’re done, head over to the Build Showcases subforum and post a thread using the application form below. Make sure to change your prefix to "Contest Entry"!

You may work in a team of up to a maximum of 3 players, including you. Prizes will be split as equally as possible between teammates. Please also keep in mind that only the builders you mentioned in your application will receive a prize if your build is part of the top 3.

[​IMG]
  • Plagiarism is not allowed; including copying other players’ builds from other worlds with WorldEdit.​
  • Do not build anything that would be considered inappropriate or vulgar.​
  • You may copy old creations that you built previously. Keep in mind that anyone who helped out with them will only receive a prize if they are mentioned in your application.​
  • Build specific rules and general rules still apply.​

Hello Brawlers!
Yesterday, due to time constraints and timing with the Raid reset we were only able to host one game, Team HG. The event however was streamed on www.twitch.tv/mcpvp and reached over 80 players. Please let us know what you thought of the stream and if there's anything we could do better.

Team HG winners: @X_SUS, @Teamien and @DdDiamentdD (2 weeks elite)
If you haven't received prizes yet please contact me or an admin.

We'd like to thank you all for attending and hope you all had fun.

The top two voted on events will be played during this week's event, so make sure to leave your opinion on what should be played.

The events to be selected this week:
  • Regular HG
    • Just a normal game of HG.
  • Team HG
    • Same as above, yet everyone is split into teams.
  • Deathswap
    • Normal HG game, but at random intervals everyone is teleported to another players location.
  • King of the Hill
    • HG game where the goal is the first to stay on top of a generated hill for 15 seconds uninterrupted.
  • Red Rover
    • Minigame in which the goal is to be the last man standing while trying to avoid a killer as you cross sides of a small map.
We're open to more suggestions on more events as they become feasible. Please leave specific event ideas down below if you have any.

Hello Brawlers!​

In honour of the Raid reset, we will be giving away a Lifetime Elite rank!
Anyone is able to participate, so get ready for this epic contest!​

To win, you must have the best score out of all players at the end of the month. The scoring is based on multiple point values for each thing you do. So, there are many ways to potentially win this contest. Perhaps you like killing more than mining, you could earn your points while killing things.

Below are the point values for each action:

Kill: 0.1 points each
Gold balance: 0.7 points per ingot
Ingame hour: 0.1 points each hour
Ores mined:
Emerald Ore: 0.4 points each
Diamond Ore: 0.4 points each
Gold Ore: 0.3 points each
Iron Ore: 0.3 points each
Redstone Ore: 0.2 points each
Lapis Ore: 0.2 points each
Coal Ore: 0.2 points each​
Passive mob kill: 0.2 points each kill
Hostile mob kill: 0.3 points each kill
Ghasts kill: 2 points each
Wither boss kill: 10 points each
Ender dragon kill: 30 points each

So, each of the stats above will grant you X amount of points each. So if you had 100 gold in your balance, you would have 70 points towards the leader board.
The contest will close at the end of the month on February 28 at 11:59 PM EST. Remember, there can only be one winner, so be sure to give this contest all you've got!

View your ranking at: http://www.brawl.com/RaidEvent2017/
Updates every 5 minutes

Prize: Lifetime ELITE
Where: "/play Raid" for Map 2
Starts: Feb. 4 at 4:00PM EST (when Raid resets)
Ends: February 28 at 11:59PM EST

Have fun, good luck, and may the best prevail!

Featured Brawler
This month's featured Brawler sports a knack for a highly unusual combination of our servers. He's invested in the party community, yet he knows how to wield a gun? That's right, he really brings the heat in wildwest. But that's not all! He also plays quite a bit of CTF. What? A gun user that can hold his own in vanilla PVP? Weird right? He's a partying sheriff that captures flags! This month's featured Brawler is @xPurest! Congratulations! Keep doing what you're doing!

Trivia Question
Last month's question was: How many maps does Build currently hold excluding archived maps? One guess per user, the closest guess will win!
The answer was 298,407 maps that are not archived with 363,634 maps in total. @Charlie_0014 was closest with 300,000 and has earned a forums trophy!

This month's question is: At the time of writing, how many forums users use the dark theme?
The answer will be revealed along with the winner in the next edition of The Brawl News.

Group Advertisement
Ever get tired of the same old maps on CTF? Ever wish there was something you could do to help spice things up a little? Sure you could build a map yourself, but that's quite a lot of work. If only there was a group of CTF enthusiasts for you to team up with. Maybe then making maps wouldn't be so difficult. Well, beginning this month, such a team actually exists! Introducing the unofficial CTF Build Team! Join today while applications are still open! Make sure and check out their home thread here.

Congratulations to Fordale for being the first Builder of the Month!
Fordale is the creator of a map also called Fordale, an amazingly detailed fantasy world that’s so enormous it fills up the entire 512x512 map. In fact, it’s so awesome it’s already inspired two builders (at least) to get to work on a giant adventure map of their own! But don’t just take our word for it, go and check it out! You can visit it by logging onto MinecraftBuild.com and typing /map 344472.
For her efforts, Fordale has earnt herself the first ever Builder of the Month forum medal and 3 extra maps to build on. We’re excited to see what she can come up with next!

Think you can win too? Head over to Build Showcases and submit your map – everything is considered for BOTM, and there’s no limit to the amount you can post. So get building!

In the end, over the two weeks that the test was live, a total of 55 different people took the test. The average for the test was a 21.65/49. That's not bad, considering some of the facts! Interestingly enough, @Signatured's question was the question people missed most. Only 13/55 people got it correct! His fact was his favorite dog breed, which was a Dachshund.

New year, new owner, new contest! The Build Team is now in charge of build competitions, so we’re going to shake things up a bit. Let’s get right down to business!
__________​

First off, we’re going to be making these competitions more regular – they’re now monthly. That’s right, you’ve now got a chance to win a prize every single month!

Secondly, you’ll now be posting your submissions in the Build Showcases subforum. This means that, if you want to, you’ll be able to make a beautiful post showing every part of your build instead of having to squeeze it into one reply on a thread. And don’t forget – by posting there you’ll be in with a chance of winning Builder of the Month! More information here!

Finally, the prizes are going to be a bit different. Since the competitions are more regular the prize money has gone down, but we’ve sweetened the deal by giving you some maps to build on, free of charge! Check it out below.

[​IMG]

This month’s contest theme is PARTY MAPS.
You’ll be making a map of your choice for our very own Minecraft Party gamemode, so get creative – the possibilities are endless!

There will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Winners will receive special prizes and will be posted in the “Sponsored events” thread under the News & Info shortly after the contest ends.

All entries (teams and their map ID) will be listed in this thread for viewing purposes. This will also make it easier to detect plagiarism.

PRIZES

1st place: $20 to spend in the Brawl store, 3 FREE maps and a sweet contest winner medal!
2nd place: $15 to spend in the Brawl store and 2 FREE maps!
3rd place: $10 to spend in the Brawl store and 1 FREE map!

Also, every single map that is submitted is eligible to become an official Minecraft Party map, for which you will receive a Mapmaker Forum Medal.

[​IMG]

Connect to MinecraftBuild.com and type /create to make a map, then get building! If you've used up all your maps, feel free to ask me and I'll give you member perms on a void map.

Once you’re done, head over to the Build Showcases subforum and post a thread using the application form below. Make sure to change your prefix to "Contest Entry"!

You may work in a team of up to a maximum of 3 players, including you. Prizes will be split as equally as possible between teammates. Please also keep in mind that only the builders you mentioned in your application will receive a prize if your build is part of the top 3.

[​IMG]
  • You will be making a map for any minigame from Minecraft Party. Make sure to read this thread for minigame-specific rules.
  • The play area should be around 100x100 in size, and centred around 0,0 where possible.
  • [VERY IMPORTANT]: your entry should follow the general Party theme of colourful, basic and fun. Don’t make a super detailed gothic castle courtyard, for example – it may look really nice, but if it doesn’t fit in with the rest of the Minecraft Party maps, it’s not going to stand a chance!
  • Plagiarism is not allowed; including copying other players’ builds from other worlds with WorldEdit.
  • Do not build anything that would be considered inappropriate or vulgar.
  • You may copy old creations that you built previously. Keep in mind that anyone who helped out with them will only receive a prize if they are mentioned in your application.

CLOSED. RESULTS WILL BE OUT SOON!

All entries must be submitted HERE before the deadline. Please see the timezone converter to find out when the deadline is for you. All entries will be judged after the deadline. Winners will be announced a few days after the deadline.
