    Monthly contests are being completely rehashed with some new tweaks to spice things up!

    First off! Prizes. There are now twelve prizes for the winner of each contest to choose from. Once a prize has been chosen once, that prize becomes unavailable for the rest of the MineCove Calendar Year.

    A MineCove Calendar Year starts in September, MineCove's birthday!

    The prizes are as follows:
    • /fix for all users
    • /fly for all users
    • No air in playerboxes + 3 active collector's items
    • McMMO triple XP event in survival and farmzone + McMMO cooldowns halved
    • Votes needed for a VoteParty reduced to 10 + Double drop rates from votecrates
    • ABC rankup costs reduced by 25%
    • /land, Buybuild, and Painting prices reduced by 30%
    • -15% Webshop sale
    • +50% Contest Tokens awarded at the end of next month's contest
    • Unlimited car fuel for all players
    • Double shiny pokemon drop rates + access to /kit Pokemon for all players
    • All players can activate /boost effects for free


    Also, there will be more Contest Tokens up for grabs, as well as all-new Contest Trophies!

    These will be awarded to the top 4 teams as follows:

    1st: 40 Contest Tokens + 'Diamond' Contest Trophy
    2nd: 30 Contest Tokens + 'Emerald' Contest Trophy
    3rd: 20 Contest Tokens + 'Gold' Contest Trophy
    4th: 10 Contest Tokens + 'Iron' Contest Trophy​

    On top of this, each team that makes a genuine submission will receive 1 Contest Token!



    Second! We will provide a special monthly contest flatmap for you to build your submissions. You can enter it with /contest. Contest submissions must be located in /contest, but if you just feel like building freely there that is fine too. Please note that at the conclusion of the contest phase this map will be removed.

    In the special map, there is an expansive 100k x 100k border limit. Regions can be placed for free here, but you are only allowed one region. Using alts to bypass this is not permitted.

    During the judging phase, the world will be set to BUILD DENY and BREAK DENY.

    Again, upon conclusion of the contest, the map will be removed. Please do not leave anything behind that you cannot afford to lose.


    Third!
    Statues of the leaders of the top 4 teams will be placed at spawn for the following month. You'll want to do well in contests since if you do, you'll be one of the first things people see when they join!

    The contest rules have been updated and can be found here: https://minecove.net/threads/monthly-contest-information.9119/

    If you have any questions, please let us know!

    I think it would be a good idea to give people access to WorldEdit in the /contest map. Reason for this is that it's a flatmap, which means that making any kind of other environment (sea, mountain w/e) would be a serious pain in the butt.

    That would defeat the whole point of them being survival contests.

    Well, one of the advantages of a survival contest is the ability to choose your own terrain/environment

    Update: From October 2017 onwards, Survival Contests will be returning to the main /survival world, and the contest flatmap at /contest will be removed.

    It is important to note that team leaders will be responsible for purchasing sufficiently large /land claims for their submissions, but you will once again have access to the diverse terrain generated in the map.
    After the end of each contest, your entries will be yours to do with as you see fit.

    The Monthly Contest Information thread (https://minecove.net/threads/monthly-contest-information.9119/) will always be up to date with the latest rules and information so make sure to read it through regularly to place yourself in the best position to win future contests!

    Many thanks to everyone who supports Survival Contests by entering, and keep your eyes on the Survival Contests subforum for the October Contest details! (Coming Oct 2)
