Events

From MINR.ORG WIKI

Events are limited time, server wide features available to players of all ranks or players of a specific rank. They are hosted every so often, usually by an Admin or Mod and often have special rewards for the top ranked players in them. This page covers known events and details about them in chronological order (of the first edition held).

Ninja Warrior[edit]

Ninja Warrior is a parkour event hosted usually around twice a year by HC12345. It always takes place on Saturdays and so far has always been hosted by HC12345, with occasional help from some admins. The event is based off the TV show that has the exact same name.

Details[edit]

In Ninja Warrior, players have to complete 4 Stages in order to receive the title of "Ninja Warrior", without falling. Some of the stages have a time limit on them for additional difficulty in their completion.

Until Stage 3, the parkour rises in difficulty making Stage 3 the hardest. While Stage 4 is not very hard, it has a strict time limit that allows no room for error, making it hard for those who have gotten to it to earn the title of Ninja Warrior.

The rewards for Ninja Warrior competitions include colored prefixes, Steam gifts and more.

The Amazing Race[edit]

Based on a TV show of the same name, The Amazing Race is an event only for Greens and up that takes place 1 to 2 times a year. It's first host was HC12345, but it has been hosted by a number of different mods/ops over the years.

Details[edit]

In The Amazing Race, contestants run around the map of Minr looking for clues. The event starts where the previous edition of it ended, and includes a first clue at the start. Using clever thinking, knowledge of the map and sometimes online tools, contestants solve the clues which lead them to more clues, all until they get to the final clue which is supposed to lead them to the end of the race.

As it involves map exploration, The Amazing Race requires good knowledge of the world map as well as a fair amount of general knowledge to be able to get to the finish. Because it involves exploring the map, it is restricted to Greens and higher.

Prizes include special star prefixes for the top 3 as well as occasional Steam prizes.

The Great Race Tournament[edit]

The Great Race Tournament, also referred to as TGR Tournament, was a one time event hosted in July 2014 by HC12345. It mainly resolved around the first map in the TGR series, The Great Race.

Details[edit]

In the event, players of all ranks were put against each other in a tournament-style bracket. They had to race in the original TGR map and whoever came first in the race would continue further into the event.

The format started with round robins, followed by knockout stages later on. The winner of this event was crafterkid98.

HC's Christmas Chase[edit]

HC's Christmas Chase, or The Christmas Chase was a one time event hosted on Christmas Day in 2014, by HC12345. There have been no new editions of this event ever since.

Details[edit]

The event was free for anyone to enter, even with a delayed entrance to it. It consisted of racing through 10 different FFA levels, with whoever beat them all first being the winner.

The winner of this event was chunkyboy12

Tournament of Champions[edit]

Tournament of Champions was a one time event hosted by corygolfanatic in March 2016.

Details[edit]

The tournament followed a similar format to that of The Christmas Chase and TGR Tournament. Players had to compete against each other in maps picked by the host.

Sadly, due to time differences and other difficulties the tournament was cancelled half-way and there was never a winner announced.

Purple Coin[edit]

Purple Coin is an event that is occasionally hosted by rmanimal. The first edition was hosted in August 2016, and the second was hosted August 5th, 2017.

Details[edit]

During the event, players are given a set of maps in which there are hidden "purple coins", which are in fact purple player heads. Players must look for the coins by doing these maps. Set into one of two teams, the players compete to be the team with the most coins by the end of the event.

The prize is a cosmetic star prefix for the winning player.

Spawn Competition 2016[edit]

The Spawn Competition hosted in June 2016 was the first of the series of yearly build competitions organized by MINR. For the most part, the competition was organized by Chillers, but with occasional help from other ops. Only greens+ were allowed to enter.

Details[edit]

Contestants were given their own plots in the end where they had Creative Mode access for the duration of the competition. They were allowed to receive WorldEdit help from admins, but nothing too minor that could be done without any help. After the entry period was over, the spawns were submitted in a community vote to see which one was the best.

The winner of the competition was minty1111 and his spawn is currently being used as the server spawn.

Puzzle Competition 2017[edit]

The Puzzle Competition of 2017, sometimes referred to as Zath's Puzzle Competition, or just "Puzzlecomp" is the second in a series of annual build competitions. The competition is mainly hosted by Zatharel and Chillers, with occasional help from other admins. The goal of the competition is to add more pure puzzle maps to FFA.

Details[edit]

Just like in other build competitions, competitors are given temporary creative mode, however this time instead of multiple plots per person, the competition is hosted on one large plot. Entries must be complete by August 1st and will later be judged by a panel of judges consisting of 5 Minr Admins.

Details[edit]

The competiors had from December 10, 2017 to February 1, 2018 to build their maze. The competiors could build in Zero or Theta but all of them built in Theta because it was much easier.
