    Hello Shadowblockz,

    Since the server hasn’t had many events recently, or for a while, the Accordo nation has decided to organise a building competition. We will be holding it on Saturday 2nd December at 9pm GMT (this may change, so make sure to check back here on the day). Anyone and everyone is welcome to join.

    How it will work
    Each contestant will be given a 30x30 area to build in. Each plot will contain some basic resources for you to build with, but you are allowed to buy more from the server shop.

    You get one hour to do your build, in the theme decided. After the hour is finished, the builds will be judged and the winners announced later on. Building will start at exactly at the time stated, you can turn up later but will not be given extra time.

    Prizes!
    1st Place - $10,000,000

    2nd Place - $5,000,000

    3rd Place – 1 Beacon + 2½ stacks of Gold Blocks

    Rules
    1. Flying is allowed, but will be considered in judging
    2. Do not interfere with other players while they are building.
    3. Do not build before time begins and stop once the time ends.
    4. Only one person is allowed to build on a plot
    5. Do not copy others or use tutorials
    6. You are allowed to buy additional resources from the server shop, if you cannot craft them with the materials given
    7. BT members are not allowed to participate in building, but they may be able to join in judging the builds at the end.

    If you would like to participate, you can either respond to the poll or let me know in-game or on discord. I’m always around on one or the other.
    *Only 12 spaces available*

    Update
    After some eloquent and thoughtful suggestions from players, we have decided to make some alterations to the rules;

    Rules
    1. Flying is not allowed, in order to give a fair chance to players without VIP+ or above.
    2. Do not interfere with other players while they are building.
    3. Do not build before time begins and stop once the time ends.
    4. Only one person is allowed to build on a plot.
    5. Do not copy others, use tutorials, or build from reference pictures.
    6. You will be allowed to buy additional resources from the server shop, if you cannot craft them with the materials given.

    @AhVeryNice kindly mentioned the plots' terrain, while it is surprising an ex-build team leader does not appreciate the small variations in terrain, here are the plots as they currently stand (as they would have been on the day of the event);

    So, unfortunately i won't be able to get online at 9pm on Saturday to start and run the build comp, i could hold it at 10pm but i want to save you from a late night event.

    Therefore, it's going to be pushed back a day, and also made slightly earlier, to Sunday 3rd December at 8pm GMT (3pm EST).
