November Build Battle Results
User avatar
Hi Everyone!
We had a great build battle this past month and we had a lot of great builds and a lot of participation. The judges, Tulonsae, myself, and special guest judge Wokka, were very impressed by the results and it made judging difficult. It is my pleasure to announce the winners. There were five categories in which we judged all of the entries. The winner and two runners-up for each category will be awarded prizes. They will be contacted by me, either in-game or on the forums, especially if they won a top prize. If you won a top prize and you do not have a forum account that I can contact, please make one and PM me.

The first trophy we will be giving out is the Thematic Trophy for build that most expresses the theme, in this case, Autumn (Fall).
1st Prize goes to ShadowCreator for his UFO harvesting the fall crops
2nd Prize goes to personal_builder for his spooky autumn tree
3rd Prize goes to arizons for Snoopy sleeping on the Great Pumpkin (personally I felt a lot of nostalgia when I saw this build)

The second trophy is the Spooky Trophy for build that most related to Halloween.
1st Prize goes to Blackknight for his headless self portrait
2nd Prize goes to The_MoonTube for his creepy forest temple
3rd Prize goes to ShadowCreator

The third trophy is the Veteran Builder Trophy for the best build of the veteran players. To qualify as a veteran player, a player had to have played on another Escapecraft world before Horizons.
1st Prize goes to ShadowCreator
2nd Prize goes to personal_builder
3rd Prize goes to Blackknight

The fourth trophy is the Aspiring Architect Trophy for the best build of the new players. To qualify as a new player, a player must not have played on another Escapecraft world before Horizons.
1st Prize goes to The_MoonTube
2nd Prize goes to Aerobotic for his impressive leaf cradle
3rd Prize goes to dallasprice342 for his spooky tree

The final trophy is for Best in Show, the best build overall.
1st Prize goes to ShadowCreator
2nd Prize was a tie and The_MoonTube and Aerobotic will each be getting a 2nd place prize
3rd Prize goes to personal_builder

Thanks again to all of you who participated and please feel free to participate again and I hope you had fun. This was a great turnout and I hope the December Build Battle is just as fun and successful. The build battle area will be opened up soon so that all players can see the great builds (without having to worry about clearing your inventory first). Congratulations and keep building!

November Build Battle Server Event - Update
User avatar
Greetings Escapecraft!

It is with great pleasure that I announce our first Horizons server event: the Build Battle. In this event, players will have a week to build a structure, scene, monument, or anything really, that embraces the theme of the Autumn (Fall) season. It could be related to Halloween, Thanksgiving or anything related to Autumn (Fall). You will have access to creative mode to be able to build with almost any material. The builds will be judged and there will be prizes!

You will not be able to spawn any mobs so please don’t even try and don’t build anything obscene. Don’t bring anything with you to the building zones that you don’t want to lose. You will not be able to use /sethome, /home, or /spawn inside the building zone, you will have to use the designated exit points. When you use these, they will clear your inventory so you can’t bring illegal blocks back into the survival areas. Again, don’t bring anything with you to the building zones that you don’t want to lose. Players can access the building area from a TP pad in the spawn castle. Players not participating may come to the building zones to watch the builds but beware, TO GET BACK YOUR INVENTORY WILL BE CLEARED!

Players who wish to participate can sign up on the forum by replying to the November Build Battle Sign Up thread ( with their full Minecraft character name, or you can place a sign with your character name on it on the Build Battle sign up wall at the spawn castle courtyard. Players who sign up during the sign up period will be given a 32x32 plot on which they can build when the event starts. The event will last for one week at which point the builds will be blocked off so the judges can vote on the winners. There will be prizes! Any player including staff may participate, except for the staff members who are judging (Tulonsae, Mafeeeh, Stygian_Inquirer).

The build battle has finished! I want to thank everyone for their participation. Results will be posted sometime this weekend. Note: The build battle arena is closed until the judging has been completed, at which point it will be reopened for people to be able to look at all the entries.
