    • You may work in teams of up to three players. If a team wins, each member on the team will receive the prize for the position they placed in.
    • The start and end of the elytra course must be clearly indicated. If additional instructions are needed to clarify the path of the course, please make sure to include them.
    • The elytra course must fit within a 120 x 120 block area.
    • The elytra course must be built somewhere on EMC. Locations of the elytra courses will be publicly released, so make sure it's in a place you are okay with other people visiting!
    • You may only submit one elytra course.
    • 1st Place: 250,000 rupees and an additional prize -- name to be determined.
    • 2nd Place: 100,000 rupees
    • 3rd Place: 50,000 rupees
    • A prize will be sent out to ALL participants who qualify (actually give effort). That item is still in the decision phase.
    • The entries will be judged by members of the staff team, and a community vote will also be held via the forums.
    • The winners will be determined by a combination of the community vote and staff input.

  4. This sounds like a blast for a contest. I just wish I hadn't seen it 9 days before the end. I know this sorta can't be built on the SMPs unless you got 4 res's in a square so the frontier? Can you make it on a Utopia res? I may not hit the deadline but I am thinking about building something even if it is late for the contest. Sounds like fun work. I been looking for something new to do anyway. Edit: I can't count. 7 days. lol

    MissBonnieParker, GreenMeanie, and TheCritic are in 3rd place with their very unique dropper-like elytra course!

    SteamingFire glided into second place with a classic elytra course that goes up, down, and allllll around!

  20. Are the courses open for players to visit? If so, what are the residence addresses? I'm bad at elytra but I'd still like to see them! :D
