We are glad to announce that we have finished judging the Build an Empire Contest. We thank all who entered as we had 178 plots claimed with about 60% having some sort of building on them. We are glad to see that those that competed enjoyed the experience even though the plot size and the time frame may have been difficult for some as we were stress testing our system. Now down to the important part.. the top 10 and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placements! View Top 10 and Winners List 1st - DarthRiot [Solo Build] DarthRiot had an amazingly detailed plot with a large area covered that worked well together and went well with our theme. For a solo build only over about 1.5 weeks working time as started later in the contest this stood out to us as a very outstanding job. 2nd - Kevaasaurus with helpers chiverson, PanteLegacy Kevaasaurus' contest plot was full of amazing looking organics and some unique looking structures. It also used a large area of the contest plot and was very unique in its style, 3rd - mjegs with helpers JLord23, ultor, dayvasdayv, _Pogg, applesauce888 A great asian theme with big open areas of farmland and detailed terrain, some areas are not quite as detailed as the 1st and 2nd place but its overall completion and design along with its fluid layout bring this right into 3rd place. 4th - Sjoerdoh with helpers Alice_ 5th - Aegos with helpers Cypher1025, Scylince, Nukespeeder, Bede_Alphon, goaltriper 6th - Fanker453 with helpers pls_n0, _Ripper_Roo_,Zeebrah,DancerAngel22 7th - shinezeo_siiji with helpers Kayszlo, boubs38, Gewalt_TheAppleSenpie Poseyidon 8th - geckopirate with helpers KingDutchDwarf, Domstopher, SidewaysSlab, Brooklyn_ 9th - uioz with helpers RowdyArt, uniblast 10th - NotRekinSupere with helpers Lana__Del__Rey, Crucxe, jdog4400, alaiwe, Hurbi The Prizes: 1st Place will get a solo video of their build along with their build being featured on our Planet Minecraft Account (if you wish but with no download) with links back to your social media accounts.
