RE: [Event] Build Battle Voting
After all this picking pros and cons with the ones I liked I came to this conclusion:

1st: Id10T5
2nd: Mac n Cheesers
3rd: Weather Fortess
4th: Alienub_Invasion
5th: TMS

Wish I could have voted for more cause I had a lot on my list. I hate this voting. XD
You can see here that I have not included in my vote any of the major builds that would possibly win this BB, as I feel they will get more votes anyway. Plus I think its time that the underdogs got to benefit from a win, because they are good and not great, but have covered the PvP requirements.
I would like to say 'Gratz' to all who entered this BB. It was a long 6 weeks of building and I am glad I didn't go into it as I would have been overwhelmed, as I am now just having to pick 5 winners.
I would like to let voters know not to look at the boxes that some of these are made in. It's not what you see from the outside with these builds, as much as it is whats inside them. Remember all the arenas will have barriers/walls around them and you will only be playing on the inside. Because what is outside may never be seen.
I have put all these into spoilers so the post wouldn't be overcrowded.
Now down to what I thought about some of the builds.
Weather Fortress
Spoiler Expand
This is a good nether build, seeing we lost our old one to the void, we best get a new one. Wink
Oasis Boiz
Spoiler Expand
This is great. But it has 2 hole/caves that could have been linked instead of being traps.
Spoiler Expand
I like the other worldly scene but it's too dark in places for my liking, should have hidden some lighting about 5 blocks down for a dull lit look.
Spoiler Expand
The lazer tag is cool. Maybe there should have been a glass room off the sides of the arcade so people could see the red and blue guyz asking to join their teams. Because from inside the game, they will never be seen.
Spoiler Expand
I like the ice tubing it's a cool idea. I found a few spots where you can get caught in the water part and drown, also in the lower area's tubing there is a spot where you can fall down and if you don't die you are stuck in there and another where if you jump down you get damage, the 3rd has a waterfall so your safe there. Also there is a part you can go out into the water and go to the ice caves but I found 2 open bits that will take you to the main water section. I find that unnerving too, with having to find a way out before you drown and if you do find a hole to get back in and get to the middle large tube you can get stuck in the lower area and not get out. Maybe making a few more exits would have been good. Over all it was a great build.
Spoiler Expand
This was very colourful and well built. I would have liked to have seen a few tunnels though.
Spoiler Expand
This one is way big and there are a lot of places not only to hide but get lost in. Great build.
Spoiler Expand
That is one amazing build guyz. It's a pity you didnt get to finish it. This is one of the best bro/sis teams I have ever seen on CV. Alone or together you two seem to be taking CV by storm with your awesome builds. I mean just look at 'Oom, and all of Delfy's other BB builds like the dragon and wave.
Spoiler Expand
Well you came up with an intriguing concept on a mansion. I love all the hidden rooms and ways to get around.
Mac n Cheesers
Spoiler Expand
This is so cute with all the fairies and dragonflies. It has a good amount of escape tunnels and is well built.
Special achievements go to:
Spoiler Expand
For doing it alone in one day. Well done.
Lambda Team
Spoiler Expand
For the cool Jail they did. Sorry I couldn't get in to it, seeing doors, buttons, levers and pressure plates can't be used in BB. Would have loved to have a look inside it.
Sister Squad
Spoiler Expand
You did a cool village there. I liked the rail track.
Spoiler Expand
I like the 4 sections to yours. A lot of thought was put into it. But this is a PvP not a parkour or coaster ride. Would have been good without those parts. Tree house was a good idea but a bed?? I think also that some of the tunnel/lower areas could have been a bit better thought over and had exits too.
The Creeper Express
Spoiler Expand
This is a basic PvP. I like how the ores have been used but a few more ore tower/boulders would have been better than the random single scattered blocks and maybe the parkour part made somewhat easier to travel, maybe more as a bridge or upper walkway and without that many webs.
Spoiler Expand
This was a cool idea but it lacked bases and places to get away from the enemy. Would have like to have been able to get inside some of the builds and maybe to have had some tunnels in them.

RE: [Event] Build Battle Voting
Sooo I already had a lil mental list of who I was gonna vote for but I just got on today to think about it more and ohhhh boy I'm glad I did. I gotta say there are quite a few builds in the BB that are all amazing in their own special ways, but they do have flaws. After a lot of thinking I've decided to vote:

1. Alienub_Invasion - Something I think is lacking in pretty much all the other builds I can think of is landscaping. I love this build because you guys really took time to build up the terrain and slope it instead of keeping it flat. I just don't get the thrill of chasing someone in flat terrain where, as long as they're sprinting in the open, they will never slow down and I will never catch them. Landscaping, I feel, is very important in PVP as it adds that bit of strategy and a bit of luck I suppose, in running away and chasing people, and not "tripping" on a block because you jumped too early. It's also an amazingly detailed build with beautiful mushrooms which are sooo hard to build so good job guys!

*sorry I had to give a paragraph to that build it was just so perfect?*

2. Id10t5 - I love the idea of a Woodland Mansion build, and your team has done an amazing job. I love the idea of having secret passageways in the paintings and its a good build all around. Good job!

3. not_chomps - I like the idea of a lazer tag map, and I loveee the panels giving a lot of cover. I er would have prefered it to be built out of black concrete to be more immersive, I feel like coal is too bright, but you probably have your reasons for this seeing you used black concrete on the walls.

4. Nubs_of_the_Lost_Oasis - I loved this build when I first saw it and I still do. I like how you guys got a lot of little buildings just literred around everywhere, so the map is definitely not boring. However, I would like to make a *recommendation*: when building desert style builds, you'll typically find several houses clumped together and I think that having at least one area where the builds are clumped up as the *main* attraction would serve as a popular spot where players will generally rotate to. Things like rooftop lookouts would make a good strategic archer spot, secret passages, alleyways and such could be hidden inside, and there'd be lots of cover.
Another thing I would recommend is to make the terrain more varied - I know its a desert and should typically be flat but some inclines and dips here and there cant hurt. I think this build is very unique and the map is interesting but I just feel like this build has a lot more potential.

*sorry that build also required a paragraph im sorry i'll stop maybe possibly*

5. BuzzBuzzBois - Ahahaha the giant potato. Yes. This was an amazing build, I love the tiny maze you guys built and I'm a huge fan of the big central area being open on all levels for people to shoot and such. I just feel like the build is a little too big vertical-wise. Maybe if you squashed the potato a little bit?

Honourable Mentions

Elf'nCo okok stoppit no bad stop flexxing your epic building skills okay we get it. I think you'd have to be mad to hate this map on looks, but its just too big for my taste. Perhaps it would be acceptable in like a Summer Games tournament where theres a lot of people playing, but normally there'll only ever be 5-6 players in PVP at one time and I'm definitely not chasing them through like 3 stories of buildings and a huge basement labyrinth.

tms Cool build, I think you could do better though. I dont like how empty and simple the giant hole is, perhaps put in more waterpipes, add more scaffolding on the sides and bridges and such. On the top I'd add more buildings crowding around the hole to give it more of a central feeling as well.

WeatherFortress I don't really like nether PVP, I find it too dark and also too red, but I feel like you could have also built a lot more in the time given. Especially compared to other builds.

All around, I was quite surprised this BB, there were a lot of amazing builds and ideas. Really amazing jobs everyone!

RE: [Event] Build Battle Voting
There were a lot of great builds and this was really hard!

My top 5
1. Not_Chomps (I love laser tag and this turned out great!)
2. BuzzBuzzBois (This is so creative and looks like so much fun!)
3. NubsoftheLostOasis (I love the desert theme to this)
4. Zacs_plot (We don't have outerspace, that's a fun and unique theme)
5. WeatherFortress (We don't have a nether arena, it would be nice to add one)

RE: [Event] Build Battle Voting
1. not_chomps
Spoiler Expand
I love that this arena feels like you're actually playing laser tag. The waiting area/arcade is a really nice touch. The one thing I'd like to suggest, is that I do wish the barriers in the actual arena were less uniform in size and position.

2. Nubs_of_the_lost_oasis
Spoiler Expand
I was getting ready to type you guys up at a lower position before I went and took another look around to see all the new additions. All in all the arena is really great, but I do wish it wasn't quite so flat. I understand that a desert shouldn't have super intense landscaping, but I think that adding a few block variation to the pathways, and perhaps connecting a few more of the caves would make it even better.

3. Zacs_plot
Spoiler Expand
The idea of pvping in space is always really cool. I really like what you guys did here. I do wish that there was a little more of the cave system down below, as well as a few more obstacles or hills on the surface of the arena.

Spoiler Expand
The mansion you guys built is a very solid pvp arena. The use of secret rooms and passages is a really nice addition that I don't remember seeing in any of the other arenas. I do think that the yard could have used a bit of landscaping and more substance, as it is it's just kind of there. Though I do understand that it's not the main feature of the arena, and the restrictions of building by hand.

5. Alienub_Invasion
Spoiler Expand
Again, I really like pvping in space Tongue. I would have liked to see a little more time put into the buildings though. Many of them seem very simple when compared to the terrain they were built on.

RE: [Event] Build Battle Voting
Having totalled up the votes here, and those that were PM'd to me, I am happy to announce that we have no less than 9 different winners! This was a fantastic build battle and the fact that the voting was so close, producing so many ties, shows just how high the quality was across the board.

The results are as follows:

1st Place (30 win points): BuzzBuzzBois AND not_chomps - 17 votes
2nd Place (25 win points): Nubs_of_the_Lost_Oasis - 16 votes
3rd Place (20 win points): tms - 13 votes
4th Place (15 win points): Alienub_Invasion AND ID10T5 - 12 votes
5th Place (10 win points): Mac_n_Cheesers AND WeatherFortress AND Zacs_Plot - 10 votes

The SA team will now review the 9 arenas and judge them separately on suitability for a skylands PvP arena. The arena(s) that will be placed in the skylands will be announced soon, unfortunately I cannot set a date on it at present.

Thank you to all who participated in this build battle, it was great to look around such fantastic builds, whether you won or didn't, everyone deserves a pat on the back for this Big Grin
