They've been coming for a long time, but here they are at least!
First things first, my apologies for the time this took to happen. Right as the contest ended, Mojang released Minecraft 1.9, which required a lot of preparation time to upgrade the servers over. That led us right into April's event, which also needed to be focused on. Finally, a judge unfortunately dropped on me, so I eventually decided to have two instead of three.
Putting that behind us, both Toad_ and myself have gone entry to entry, judging your building skills and design sense. Many of you have made fiendishly difficult parkour tracks, and we can expect several players to go crazy trying to make it to the end! Without further wait, the winners!
First place - MountainB0Y
Second place - Coneva
Third place - xray275
Congratulations to all three, and to everyone else who entered! Once again, the top three winners have earned 50, 30 and 15 Merit Points respectively, while everyone else who at least began an entry earned 1 point. You can view the current rankings on the forums, while the entries along with judges comments are available on their own page. Note that I only listed entries that looked complete or close to be.
The next seasonal event will wrap up this initial run and will launch next week! Keep an eye on this space for more information!
On a related note, judging of the parkour courses has been done on MC 1.8.9 as they were designed for it. However, many of the challenges are no longer doable on 1.9: items like glass panes and iron fences, when placed unattached, will create a small pillar instead of the previous + shape. As such, several jumps are now impossible.
I'm asking all parkour designers to please check their challenges over and make the modifications necessary. The working copies are available from Central's TransHub, in the Game Dev portal. Those who never completed their entries are welcomed to continue their works, while newcomers are invited as well - there's room for everyone! In due time, the best tracks will be added to the "Games" section of the lobby, allowing anyone (even visitors!) to challenge them!
