    CELEBRATE, MARMOTS! (for real this time)


    Why: Capture the Tower has come to Voxellia! And because a Saturday is a day where less is going on, therefore, more people can come.

    Where: At the (tentatively named) Voxellian Achievement Center with the very approximate coordinates of: x: -81, z: -1870 . Teleports will be available.

    When: Saturday April 12th, 2014 @ 16:00 UTC

    How: Play goes something like this: When the signal is given, teams will collect their armor and weapons by pushing a button in hallway alcoves:
    • Iron Sword
    • Bow and arrows
      • the following four items in either Red or Blue
    • Helmet
    • Chestplate
    • Leggings
    • Boots

    Once the gate is opened, team members will then empty onto the arena floor. (There are three levels of playable area) The object of the game is to collect all four pieces of wool from the other team, carry them safely to your own side, and complete the tower on your side, in front of the tower that your own team is defending. A team does not have to collect all four pieces at once to succeed. There are eight total pieces of wool but in two colors. The winning four block tower contains the opposite team's color, and must be completed on the stonebrick stair block on one's own side, hence "capture the tower."
    E.g.-Red team is defending a Red wool tower and must retreive the Blue wool tower from the Blue team.


    Notes:
    • Spectators are welcome!
    • Competitors do not need to bring anything the event. All equipment will be provided. In case of accidental item-stashing, there are chests available for temporary storage during the event.
    • This match is PVP enabled so deaths will occur. Oh, did I mention there's a cactus maze?
    • Once your own colored wool is placed by the other team on their pedestal, it may not be moved. Same applies for one's own team: Once a stolen wool block from the other team is placed on the appropriate pedestal, it may not be removed.
    • During matches, please do NOT stand on the soul sand door pads, as they are not pvp enabled and give an unfair advantage to those players standing there.
    • Please also read rules posted in the hallway of the Achievement Center.
    Prizes? I think so, players.

    Who: You!
    Teams can be made up of 2-6 players a piece and are currently as follows-

    Okie doke. I'm calling 20:00 UTC Monday. If no one else objects or even replies in the next day, let's call it final. AND even if we're unable to run CTT, I'll be running some events in the Event Horizon.

    Alas, 20:00 is right as my last class of the day starts. If it were to be, say, 18:00 UTC, or 22:00 UTC, then I could probably make it.

    I'll hopefully play, depending on when I get home tomorrow (it will probably be before 16:00 UCT).

    We tried once again to run Capture the Tower but ran into technical issues related to the move from Avalon. My sincere apologies for all the trouble with internet issues, lag, and the arena's state of unreadyness. We will try this again sometime in the future after everything has been checked and double checked.

    Thank you all for coming and I hope to see you at the official (and finally successful!) run of Capture the Tower!
