Battle of The Castles!


AnioNovus

Introduction

I would like to announce the next big building competition. This next competition will be for one month as the dates above correspond to. The build will not be easy. While I do encourage freedom in the building style and sizes, I would like to place some constraints on the design as I will get to later.

Background Story & Competition Objective

Two castles struggle over a resource that is held between them. For some time, they have mined in peace. However, something more valuable has been found in the mining tunnels. Some skirmishes have occurred, but a war brews on the horizon. The stores are stocked. The weapons are sharp. The soldiers are ready. The TNT is primed. The only thing that is missing is the castles and the land. It is up to you to decide the fate of the kingdom.

The goal here is to make a dynamic castle with several features integrated seamlessly together and blended well enough to where two copies can be made upon which two teams duke it out.

Building Constraints

  • [1] main gate at minimum
  • [4] towers at minimum
  • Main hall
  • Storage room
  • Armory
  • Kitchen
  • Basement for wine stock / cold cellar
  • [2] bedrooms minimum
  • Outer wall w/ citadel optional [layered defenses] [moats can also be used]

The build style can be any, but must include the items/places listed above.

Judging Parameters

  • Organisation of the build components
  • Creativity
  • Flow of movement (this build will be used in the mini-game’s server so needs to have a good flow)

General Guidelines

  • The competition starts at 00:00 GMT on 25 March, 2013. Entries will be accepted from this point onward in the Any discussion must to be kept to the discussion/queries topic.
  • The last date for entry would be 25 April, 2013, upto 00:00 GMT.
  • The build can be made on any of the servers – it will not affect your score or chances of winning.

Rewards (Prizes)

The highlight reward is 2 weeks of premium membership. Apart from it, you also get 40,000 JR Tokens! As if that wasn't all enough, your name will also be credited in the mini-games if your build is selected. What better way to get famous on JR?

That is all! We're hoping to be blown away; don't let us down, JR Crafters! :)

Oh, and once again, you can

Regards,

JR Events Team

Is it going to be like an attack team and a defend team?

defend team owns castle, Attack comes from outside and attacks??

 

Or will the castle be copied and then pasted tiwce so they stand opposite to eachother??

 

Or... Can we choose?? I started my castle for attack/defend... So the attack team spawns outside. But then i need some space for the attack team to spawn,

you don't want to spawn directly at the gates! :P

Also, do we have to make one castle that can be copied for the battlefield? Or can we make two different castles that can be used for this, with each meeting the requirements?

Because I like designing WarHub zones, especially when I can make the entire battlefield and include a couple of hidden passages :D

 

And +1 to Zistack's/Gnome's Questions - Minecraft not running on my GPU properly anymore = [a] I HATE YOU JANS T_T and barely able to play unmodded singleplayer, adding mods or a server makes it nearly impossible. T_T

YA :D me and frostblast started an epic castle. i might not enter it idk but it sure will be built for pvp. if you want to see it just type (in game) /warp end 

that should warp you right inside it 

we are almost done with the base shell and will add detail then the room shells and much more.

The entry for this should be changed to:

 

Entry: #

Builder: <name>

Server: (creative, main, premium)

World: (applying to main: main, main_nether, main_the_end.)

Warp: /warp <warp name>

 

Mainly because this is a JR-build contest so the build should only be on the JR server so having them put JR-craft is irrelevant .

I like this point as i was planning to build one.... and not participate in voting.... of one in the romenesque style and one in a gothic style

To Team - Ideally this will be a castle v castle battle, but whichever castle(s) win they can be worked into the minigames with discussion with the winner(s).

 

As far as a whole map goes, it would be an added benefit for the minigames blending it in, however, since this was not stated in the requirements I would say that since others built just the castle, only the castle will be looked. However, it would not do you any harm in adding the city Gnome.

 

-schematics will need to be talked within the events team.

 

Thanks, and I have seen a few of the builds thus far, everybody's builds are looking great! Keep up the good work and cannot wait to see the finished project / more entries!

Ah, well here is a quick update guys. Do not see any reason why not to let a schematic'd castle in so good news for those of you who were inquiring about this. Also remember April 25th is the last day of the competition and be sure to post your entry on the forums!

What if a JR t-shirt is Awarded to the winner or can you use JR tokens to buy a shirt... I just want a JR t-shirt but have no credit card :(

I have, in the past, used PayPal to create a virtual card, so that I had a routing path for buying things like that online, but I think you can also use PayPal itself to get the tees - pretty sure I bought mine before I had any plastic cards of monetary doom.
