RE: [Event] Build Battle Voting
From what I understand there will likely be multiple arenas that do get to be in skylands.

RE: [Event] Build Battle Voting
This is all speculation. It has not been said how many arenas will be put through into skylands. The amount of empty spots is not significant with how many will be chosen.

That's where all of the speculation lies. Having the parenthesis means that it could be 1 to any number, so in theory, it could only be one arena that gets accepted. Although I feel as though it will be at least two.

RE: [Event] Build Battle Voting
After much deliberation I am happy to announce the following results for the Build Battle PvP Arena Skylands Assessment:



1st Place (joining skylands)

BuzzBuzzBois - This arena is large and complex, maybe not super suitable for a couple of players but the elytra certainly make it more navigable. Very well put together arena with plenty of room for tactical play.

Nubs of the Lost Oasis - Clearly a lot of thought and effort went into this arena, and it was a very nice joint effort by the team involved. There is so much to see in the arena, lots of buildings to play around and a good balance between the two sides of the map. The nub theme is carried off very well.



2nd place (joining skylands)

ID10T5 - This arena is great, based on the vanilla building but modified to have enough hiding places and secret tunnels to keep things interesting (I'd recommend practising in the arena to find all the hiding places before fighting in there). The painting names are a nice touch. In terms of improvement some more use of the underground (a spooky basement of some kind maybe) and the outside would have been nice to see.

Alienubs - A little weird ha but overall a good arena. Well proportioned and a decent variety of builds/terrain. Some use of the underground might have been nice in terms of improvement, but otherwise this should be a very nice arena to play in.



3rd place (joining skylands with minor modifications)

Mac n Cheesers - A very cute little arena. A good variety of terrain to play across. The problem was the huge number of caves and player traps throughout the arena. Whilst they were good fun to imagine players running into, there is not much worse than losing a round of PvP because you fell down a hole or triggered a lava trap, rather than actually dying to another player in straight up PvP. This arena will be in skylands but the majority of underground tunnels have been sealed up for now.

Zacs Plot - A unique theme and for the most part very well carried out. The idea of aliens defending their little patch of space is cool and adds a little element of role play to the game. The lighting was incredibly low throughout the arena, and whilst a bit of playing in the dark is going to be interesting, we have added in some light sources here and there (hopefully in keeping with the design of the arena) to highlight landmarks for players to see and play around.



4th place (joining skylands with modifications)

WeatherFortress - A nether arena is a great idea, and in the limited time you had to work with it was carried out pretty well. Unfortunately it didn't quite meet the standards that we would like for a server PvP arena. The perfectly cuboid walls don't give the feel of being in the nether, and there is not an awful lot going on on the ground to work around in terms of playing PvP. You will be offered the chance to make modifications to your arena and it may then be released as a server skylands pvp arena.

Laser Tag - The laser tag concept is awesome, something I've enjoyed playing in minecraft before. It is clear a lot of work went into the pixel art characters and laser tag sign on the exterior. Unfortunately they are unlikely to ever be seen by players actually playing the game and the arena itself doesn't seem to have as much attention paid to it. It is fairly basic in design and would have benefited from a lot more creative use of the space. It would be worth looking into laser tag games from other sources and seeing how the genre has developed over the years. We love the concept but think it could be executed better. As an incentive to work on the arena, we are offering to make actual lasers to be used in the finished arena.



Other

tmsDade - We really liked this arena, there is so much to see and explore. Potentially too much for a PvP arena. An awful lot of work and attention has gone into this build, but it is perhaps too detailed and intricate for a PvP arena. However, we feel it would make a great Hide 'N Seek arena. So, whilst we won't be opening this as a PvP arena in the skylands, in the near future we will be opening up a hide 'n seek section of skylands and this will take pride of place there.



What next?

Over the next few weeks we will be working on getting these arenas installed in the skylands. This includes moving them from a square in build battle world to a floating island, making any modifications necessary, making/installing kit rooms, making the kits and setting up various portals. As you can imagine this may take some time so arenas will be added as and when they are ready.

There is a new floor under the usual PvP wing of skylands for the build battle winning arena portals to go, check there regularly to see if your favourite has been added yet! There are eight possible arenas to be installed, they will be placed in the order they came, 1st place portals will be nearer the skylands spawn, 2nd place portals will be next etc.

If you have designed an arena which will be going into skylands, please contact me regarding the portal design. You can either design it yourself using the dimensions of a normal PvP wing portal, or you can ask us to design it for you. Either is fine.

If you have designed an arena for which modifications have been requested, please contact me (or I will try and contact you) to make arrangements around that.

RE: [Event] Build Battle Voting
Congrats to everyone that made it!

Also, like I said in the discord, I'd be happy to go back and make a basement if it would make it a better arena, I just didn't have the time to do that because of school and life getting in the way. (Stupid school and life, am I right? Tongue)

RE: [Event] Build Battle Voting
Gratz to all the winners. Cant wait to check out what the portals will look like.

I said this in my vote:
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.
