This is the most misunderstood weekly challenge, as I see :D

Love this idea BM

oh, just some minecraft competition among a big youtube group, called mindcrack. here's the link to their subreddit: reddit.com/r/mindcrack

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 12/16/2014 02:51

Nope, just coincidence, what's that competition anyways?

BathMaster_2000 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 12/15/2014 15:11

...hmm, does this have anything to do with the color scheme of a similar competition? perhaps, this?


RBL (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 12/15/2014 13:59

2 submited!

As to tech users, by "technologically advanced weapons" you mean actual/existing ones? Or does sci-fi stuff count as well?

BathMaster_2000 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 12/15/2014 08:29

that isn't what I was going to say, although it is possible that something like that will be seen.

Instead, I was thinking that someone could possibly compile all entries into a single piece, making the two sides fight each other. That was my guess from the explanation of why the entries have to face a certain way.

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 12/15/2014 06:10

Yes. You can submit as many entries as you like.

derSteiner (Level 6 SWAT) @ 12/15/2014 05:54

Why not both? :D Ok, rules are rules.

Petruszka (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 12/15/2014 05:39

Can one user submit two items for the same weekly challenge? That would be nice to make two in this case.

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 12/15/2014 04:29

Start from scratch. All entries should be started and completed within the week.

Zizka (Level 10 Deep Blue) @ 12/15/2014 04:24

I started a sprite before the challenge (it was a wip and it still is). Can I adapt it to this week's challenge or do I need to start from scratch in order to participate ? Since I'm not that advanced I figured I would ask since I'm not sure if that would be accepted or not.

Crimso (Level 3 Chupacabra) @ 12/15/2014 04:19

I think it'd actually be pretty interesting to see which one has more submissions, since magic and futuristic weaponry are both equally rad things to sprite. 

Unless, of course, that's not what you're talking about...

BathMaster_2000 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 12/15/2014 04:09

Well, it's pretty obvious what someone's going to do when everyone has finished their piece.
