Hello everyone!

After four successful build competitions and so many wonderful contributions from our community members, we are pleased to announce the beginning of our fifth Creative Build Contest! As before, staff members will continue to build beside you for a separate ranked contest, judged by you, the players!

The contest will run from the 30th of July to the 20th of August. This gives 3 weeks to complete your builds.

Timetable: The timetable for the contest will be as follows:

July 24th-28th: Theme Poll.
July 30th: Theme announcement, building begins!
August 20th: Building ends, judging starts.
August 27th: Contest results.​

Poll: As always, the final choice is in your hands.

Above the Clouds: Long has mankind dreamed of flying to the heavens and leaving this terrestrial plane of existence behind. And it is up to you to decide how, whether it is on the wings of some great beast, a ship sailing the clouds, or a rocket to the moon and beyond.​

Tropical Paradise: From a calm ocean breeze to great trees as tall as mountains, a journey awaits you. Whether you want to bask in the sunshine, explore a beached shipwreck, or brave the Amazon jungle, the choice is up to you.

Civilizations: From Babylon to Paris, a seaside village to the world's greatest metropolis. Empires that rise and fall with the tides. What, when, and where are up to you - as long as people live there.

Into the Unknown: Fraught with thrills and frights, the allure of the unknown calls to you. These distant worlds hold great mysteries, great challenges, and even greater treasures. Wonderful brilliance and terror, a new world across the sea, and alien landscapes​
