Title: Kaktolake Glass Maze Competition
Post by: Bla on 2014 06 26, 16:33:55
The amazing glass maze in Kaktolake has been kolpleted, so today, at 00:00 UTC, a competition will be hosted!

The glass maze has several floors, and everyone start by jumping down to the bottom floor. From there, they navigate their way up through the floors which get increasingly hard and complex, until they reach the roof. On the roof, there will be a reward to the quickest.

Rules:
- Entrance to maze will be blocked until the competition starts (it's physically blocked by 4 iron blocks that people who join the competition start out by mining).
- Ender pearls are banned. People should only bring food and set spawn to a bed by the entrance.
- Of course, no breaking or placing blocks, except for the 4 iron blocks at the very start and the 4 mysterious reward blocks at the very end blocking the jump exit. These may be broken with iron pickaxes provided by Bla.

I will not participate, but I will record people and note how long it takes for people to complete it. I finished it myself in 6 minutes and 31 seconds without using my map of the top two floors.

The building is found in Kaktolake, north of Spawntown, in Kaktoland, and the closest rail station is Kaktolake Monster Factory. It is right outside Kaktolake Portal which is found at the nether horse roads.

Please post if you're participating. If there's little interest, the competition can be moved to another day.

It wouldn't make a big difference, but I think it's a bad idea to bring valuables into the maze, because you might have to suicide if you give up. Therefore I have decided people may use iron pickaxes that I'll provide.

Thanks for participating. Kol that was fun to watch. I hope it was equally fun to play. I might upload a vid tomorrow, but it got very long, so might take a while.

After 1 hour and 58 minutes Blotz also managed to complete the maze.
My record was 6 minutes 31 seconds without map (same utilities as when you people tried).

Here's a map showing the blue and purple floors (C = cyan, B = blue, P = purple):

Glass made video part 1 is here

Fiah is declared the winner and has got the prize, as TMC exited the maze and climbed the ladder in the observation tower when he mined the prize.
