The end is nigh, ladies and gentlemen! Our contestants have been whittled down to the final two for the last round of Master Builder III! While a couple of the builds this week were not quite finished, they were still of a high standard, so well done to those who've made it this far even if they've not made it to the very end.

Congratulations to Jawagrunt for his pirate lair and Josh349 for his Kraken attack, as it is these two who will be duking it out in a battle of titans starting this coming Saturday, hoping to claim the elusive title of Master Builder. As per usual, confirmation PMs will be sent out later this week.


In other news, following a devastating shortage of Nether Quartz and Blaze spawners, the Nether will be reset in the near future as was promised upon TNA's release. As such, make sure to move any loot that is stored there to somewhere safer.


Finally, some of you may have noticed some of our ex-mentors strutting around with fancy new [Staff] titles in-game and on the forums. These chosen ones have been deemed worthy of acceptance into what was once the Moderator ranks following some staff restructuring, so congratulations to the following:

  • Robipodsupreme
  • Iron_Fang
  • Arizons
  • Losarot
  • Modocam
  • ItchyNL

Say well done to these individuals, and watch as their individuality and free spiritedness slowly gets crushed as they end up working for "The Man".

A personal note from wokka


Finally, some big news. Due to personal commitments and time constraints, I shall be stepping down as the Minecraft lead for Escapecraft. In my place, Tyrasengineer and Steveab will be co-leading Escapecraft, with Tulonsae and Eggster as admin advisors- I'm sure Tyras and Steve will welcome any comments, questions or suggestions should you have any, so feel free to use the suggestions forum or their PM inboxes to show them the error of their ways.

It's been fun, and I'm looking forward to what the new leadership can bring to the community - don't worry, they have some interesting projects on the horizon, and I have faith that they can last at least a couple of months without setting the server on fire, getting arrested and maiming themselves...

I would like to point out that I'm not leaving, I'll still be on IRC everyday, checking the forums daily and hopefully the new leadership will still consult me on things that need my advice on. I'm still the owner and will continue to fund this community. I just don't have the time anymore to properly lead and need help. For those of you who are curious, I'm studying for my CCIE certification for work, it's Cisco's highest engineering certificate you can attain and needs a dedicated 18 months or more of study and practice for the lab test.

If you have questions or comments for me, please PM me or catch me on IRC.

[Event] Master Builder Week Two Results!
User avatar

Congratulations to the magnificent four who have made it through to the semi-finals of this year's Master Builder! This week saw the quality of builds stepped up once again, as players vied for the crucial remaining spots (except in the Brown arena, where one contestant simply didn't turn up...)
Well done to the following, who have made it through to the next round:
  • Josh349 with his statue of Captain Mainwaring from Dad's Army
  • Iron_Fang for his recreation of the Game of Thrones logo
  • Haxxorzd00d with his spin on the crash site and island from Lost
  • Jawagrunt for his version of Dracula's castle
Good job to everyone who participated, this one was a tough week to judge!
A full rundown of the competition so far can be seen at the following link, but confirmation PMs will nevertheless be sent out later this week, with the arena reopening on Saturday, 12:00 server time



We aim to be running a racing and parkour event at the Rock Races arenas in Enigma at the times listed below, for all of those who didn't make it though, or simply fancy something a bit different. Register interest below, and feel free to ask me if you would like more information.

[Event] Master Builder Week One Results!
User avatar

Thank you to everyone who participated in this week's Master Builder Round One! We had some stunning builds, from Shadow's CUT dystopia to Haxx's Lego City, all of which we hope to have preserved in schematic form and put out somewhere in creative - no eta, but hopefully something to look forwards to!
This link will allow competitors to check whether they got through, which arena they will be participating in from Saturday and which person they will be playing against. Confirmation PMs will be sent out nearer the time.


For those of you who don't like building or who aren't participating in Master Builder, there will be a PVP tournament starting at 3pm Server time this Saturday, at the PVP arena in Enigma! This tournament will take the form of 1v1 arena deathmatches, and should be a fun evening. The winner will get a diamond block on Survival from my very own personal stash! Places are not limited but signing up in advance would help me set up a bracket.

[Event] Spleef Tournament
User avatar

As many of you will know, Master Builder is in full swing with a wide range of incredibly high-quality builds. While that's ongoing, we're going to be running a few events for those of you who either missed the boat in terms of signing up or for those for whom building holds little appeal - no prizes, just fun! . The first of these will be a spleef tournament taking place this evening! Times are visible below, and more notice will be given in future weeks...

Tune in on Tuesday for Round One results!
