The Minecraft Challenge:
(Presented by TThreaz and Alizée Fan)

This event will take place on a special Minecraft server, not the normal one. Connection information will be provided just prior to the event.

Teams will construct a hollow pyramid, 25 meters high, with 45 degree angle sides. It must come to a single-block point, and conform with the following standards:

[*]The pyramid may be made of any material except dirt, cobble, or any form of wood.
[*]The pyramid must be entirely of a single material, except for the capstone, which shall be a gold block.
[*]The ground upon which the pyramid is built must be completely flat, and must also be of a single material. Any material is acceptable.
[*]An entry, consisting of a single opening 2 blocks high and 1 block wide, shall be included.
[*]Inside the pyramid shall be a pens containing at least 1 each of sheep, pigs, cows, dogs, and cats. Each species should be in its own pen. Each pen shall have a player-usable entrance
[*]Also inside the pyramid must be a chest containing nine specific rare items, found in chests hidden across the land. Scavenger-hunt clues will be provided as to the locations of the chests. It is up to the teams to decide what order to pursue these clues in.
[*]The hidden chests will also each contain a single diamond. The first team to find a given chest may take this diamond for bonus points (see scoring, below).
[*]The pyramid should be sufficiently illuminated inside and out to prevent the spawning of hostile mobs. Other items may be present, but have no affect on scoring.

Team Size:

Teams shall consist of 5 players each. If the overall team captain is not participating, one of those who is shall be the designated event captain for purposes of communication.

Each team will have a Teamspeak chatroom with a judge in it to answer questions and monitor the event.

Scoring:

Winner:
The first team to complete construction as detailed above wins, and is awarded the base sum of 600,000 points.

Second Place:
Up to 250,000 points can be earned, based on how much slower the second place team is than the winner.
-Done within 15 minutes of the winner, they receive 250,000 points.
-Between 15 and 30 minutes slower, they receive 125,000 points, and winner gets 125,000 points.
-More than 30 minutes slower, they receive 0 points, and winner gets the 250,000.

Bonus:
150,000 bonus points are available for the team that has the most diamonds in a chest at their chosen work-site after 90 minutes of play. Diamonds may be mined, or found as part of the scavenger hunt activities for building materials. Teams will be advised 15 minutes before this deadline, so they can hurry and get their diamonds in to the chest. The most diamonds, even by 1, gets all the bonus points. If there is an exact tie, the points will be evenly split.

We had to do things a little differently this year, because people these days break the game with minimaps and texture mods (which are unpolicable), but T fought for the hunt and came up with a great one that should still work within the shifting parameters of the game :-)

Welcome aboard, olboy! The UK is 6 hours ahead of Ville time, so 7pm VST will be 1am for you.

If that works for you, I'll add you to the list!

We were anticipating teams of 20-25 players each, so 40-50 sign-ups.

At the moment we're at 46, with sign-ups ending tomorrow, so I'd say we're on target!
