Empire Minecraft News: October 2015

Discussion in 'Empire News' started by Krysyy, Sep 30, 2015.

  1. Referral Contest Winners and a Guide:
    Most clicks (receive Referral Blocks of Clickyness):
    1st: OmegaDustMC
    2nd: LuckyPat
    3rd: Nccoryg

    Player referrals (receive supporter vouchers):
    1st: Luckypat
    2nd and 3rd (tie for gold): Nccoryg and Erektus

    We run these referral contests every month and it's great to see more and more people participating. Check out the How-To Guide I created on how to participate and you could be one of next month's winners!

    Chisel Me This Ending Soon!
    As seen here: http://empireminecraft.com/threads/56473/
    The participants have been hard at work, destroying hundreds of blocks to carve out their creations. Remember, the deadline is coming up on October 3rd, at or very close after midnight EMC time. Then, all work gets turned to stone and destroy permissions are removed.

    Results should be out the following week.

    Delayed Congrats to BreezyMan
    It has recently come to my attention that Aikar/I completely forgot to officially announce an addition to the Developer Team. That's likely because he's been a secret developer for a while now and we didn't really notice a change =P

    HOWEVER, my heartfelt apologies to the community for not making this announcement in the September News. In case you missed it, BreezyMan is now officially one of EMC's developers and he's already hard at work learning and helping Aikar and the team out.

    Voting Competition 2015
    This competition goes throughout the months of October AND November.
    There are different Tier levels, at which you can possibly win different prizes, so everyone can participate.
    Remember: Even if you don't win the random drawings for the super special items, everyone wins, just by voting! Vote rewards as seen on the wiki page, are handed out at various levels and voting can earn you items, rupees, and tokens.

    More info on the competition: emc.gs/vote2015

    Share Your Scares: A Book Sharing Event
    This is more of a community event than a contest. Submit your scary story to the chests at /v 3006 on smp2. Then, on the week of Halloween, the books will be made available for the community to choose one or a few (depending on number of submissions) to have and read. Then, everyone can share with each other so that everyone can read all the great scary stories.

    Something Fishy Events Added
    You asked for it and she supplied it! Dramanya and the staff present this new event, added to the weekly schedule that is sure to be a splash.
