Many of you will be sad to learn that @Myrmidon‌ will not be making it to EXPO this year. This makes me sad. This also means that the baton has been passed this year to myself and @TiberiusLazarus‌ for the IC Hunger Games event.

Except... we expect it won't exactly be like hunger games. We made a map, and it turned out to be too big and detailed for a hunger games play style.

I would like to introduce to you: IC Hunger Games Adventure Games 2014!

For this event, we plan on having multiple servers going at once, on different ports. Teams of 4 will race through a pre-designed adventure set with danger, traps, and dastardly GMs ready to stop you in your tracks. The first team to finish wins.

Please use this thread as a pre-signup so we can tell who all is interested.

Lastly, for those who are NOT able to make the actual event, we are interested in setting up a play test at some point in the future. Please reply here if you qualify and are interested as a play tester.

May fortune ever be in your favor. Good luck!

    Imagine you're 8-bit Jennifer Lawrence and yourself wander from there.

    I'll do it:

    Two or three years ago, @Myrmidon‌ and @TiberiusLazarus‌ started a new event called "Minecraft Hunger Games." MCHG was a meticulously-built Minecraft map that simultaneously ejected all players onto the overworld from an underground chamber. Each small team was charged with one mission: be the last one standing. Teams roamed the landscape in a large, but enclosed area, risking their lives to obtain weapons, armor and other treasure from exposed caches on the open plains. The winning team successfully evaded or murdered the other teams.

    Due to software performance limitations of Minecraft, along with other mitigating factors, MCHG is being redesigned this year to be cannonball run through a dangerous gauntlet.

    What software performance limitations? We had no issue with lag or slowload the previous years, did we? Am I just remembering it through the rosy filter of bygone times?

    J.Law in 8bit would still be a babe.

  • SnarkasmSnarkasm Madison, WI

    Interested.

    Ejecting from the cavern caused enormous frame rate lag for some people. For example, my start was delayed by several minutes while my client caught up to all the piston physics. Others were simply not ejected from the cavern the first year.

  • MyrmidonMyrmidon Baron von Puttenham California

    I thought we solved that quite handily the second year.

  • CrazyJoeCrazyJoe Winter Springs, FL

    Yes, but the second year was plagued by crazy high hunger. Can't wait to see what's in store this year.

  • RyanFodderRyanFodder Detroit, MI

    There should be bigger issues for you than hunger this time...

  • Oh man, this sounds cool. I'm in for play testing!

    We are looking at doing some play testing this weekend.

    We have @Tushon‌ and @ErrorNullTurnip‌ for playtesting so far. We need two more! (Note that play testing disqualifies you from participation during EPIC)

    Would the two of you and any others who would like to participate post/PM their available times this week / weekend? We're looking for a ~2 hr time block.

    @CannonFodder‌ I will try to have the server online so you can play test there as well. Now if I could only remember the admin password.

  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! TX

    Currently looks like I won't be making it to EPIC so count me in for testing.

    (If by chance I do make it to Epic I will be happy enough to be there so no biggie if I can not participate)

    PS. I'm going to break your shit ;) It's what I do.
