    Ello DRCers,

    Today we are finally releasing details on the event of tomorrow. Your goal is to build the best possible buildings, with the blocks you earn and the team you chose. The game consists of a number of things:

    - The building plot for your team, where you will build two buildings, according to the category that we state tomorrow. Trading villagers will be available in your team base, where you will be able to trade dyes for building blocks or armor/weapons. Trading dyes with villagers is the only way in this game to actually get blocks or items.

    - This brings me to the dyes. Dyes are a reward for successfully finishing a parcour. When entering the portal in your team base, you will be teleported to the fighting arena where PVP is enabled. Inside this arena are four sections, containing four towers. There is a parcour in each of these towers. When finishing a parcour, a path will lead you to a button. Upon pushing this button, you will receive an amount of random dye and you will be teleported back to your base.

    This game is a team game, so be sure to support each other and make clear decisions on who is going to do what. For example, people who are good at doing parcours should focus on doing parcours and collecting dyes for building blocks for the rest of the team. You will start the game with absolutely nothing, so it is best to quickly get started with the parcours. PVP is disabled in the parcours themselves, but not outside the parcour-towers. When the game starts, you will hear the categories of the two buildings you will have to build during the event. When you finish building one of the two buildings, we will judge it and then clear your plot. @milkacow and I will judge the buildings and in the end, decide what team has built the best two buildings.

    Furthermore, Teamspeak channels are available for all six teams (which we strongly encourage you to use), and standard DRC rules will apply during the event. We think the event will take about two hours approximately.

    Spectating the event is not possible, contestants are allowed to record.

    Any other questions can be asked in this thread or before/during the game.


    PLEASE BE ONLINE IN TIME! THE EVENT SERVER WILL BE OPEN AROUND 8:15 C.E.T.

    Yea, but the colour of the dye you get is random. With Grey dye you cant buy the Same things as with purple dyes.

    Furthermore is the parcour not that easy. And Pvp is allowed outside the towers, SO when you cleared the parcour, you need to get to the tower again.

    Awesome event :D I was waiting for this explanation all week! :)
    This is a very clear explanation :) I can't wait to see how it looks IG :D

    Can we chose the color of our team? And maybe (if possible) put a password on the channels for the event. I was on TS tonight and saw some random dudes were jumping in those channels.
    This will cause some random noobs to interrupt us in our play/ listen to how we are building and then go to an other channel to tell them..

    As well: is this right? The whole in the roof and the fact you can already join the lobby? :p

    It is possible to have items in your invetory while you enter the arena, with gray dye you can even buy weapons and armor. But when you fall, you just fall down. There is no falldamage.

    Hmm, I think we will just randomize the teams with the colors.

    EDIT:

    I cant tell you how this works, wait on someone else to respond :D

    Robin forgot to close the server and the gap in the roof is just handy for us to fly out :)

    Hi,

    For the next time it would be Nice if you explained the game before asking players to make teams. Because i like this game and would like to participate but it's too late now, but if I don't know what a game is exactly I don't play it.

    About the teamspeak channels: It's possible to put a limit of 5 people on it. If someone wildly joins the channel, refuses to leave and you don't have a staffmember in your team, ask one to kick him and make place for your team.

    Also, for the people not participating: Don't join the team channels. Doing so can get you temporarily banned from teamspeak.

    Another question: If we die, we do respawn, right?
    Of course: falls from sky, insta-kill everyone beneath it. Don't underestimate whales ;)
