Weekly Builds

Recommended Posts

The reason we stopped weekly builds last rev and were hesitant to really get back into it this rev is mostly due to these 2 things:

1. Struggling to get an interesting topic

2. Building a new themed arena every week (which we can easily avoid if we have a regularly used, unthemed arena - perhaps room for a third build contest after lobby?)

If we were to relaunch Weekly Build this rev, it probably wouldn't be until after Lobby Contest, which will start in the next week or two, and last roughly a month or so (for the sake of giving people plenty of time to build their lobbies without stressing about participating in weekly build).

And perhaps we can make it more player based by allowing you all to pick and vote on categories for the next week, or something like that?

Any suggestions much appreciated, and thanks for bringing the demand for Weekly to our attention. In the event it does make it back, we'll plan to make it more efficient than last rev (it was kind of a mess, haha).

I'm all for players choosing categories. It reduces the stress of the admins having to think of a new one every week and also gives players what they want. It's a win-win scenario imo. Perhaps some players shoot some suggestions to the admins and those are sorted out and voted on whether or not they'll be a theme. Then just slap the themes with the most votes into a random order for the weeklybuild so people can't predict what the theme is till it's announced. Despite knowing the likely themes, players won't know the order and will have some level of suspense to see if their theme or their favorite theme is coming up

Couldn't we use the speedbuild arena? And the winner of each week could pick the category?

TBH, that wouldn't really work if weeklybuild overlaps with speedbuild. It'll probably be an arena formatted like the ones last rev.

I mean if we're going to have a new speedbuild arena in a couple of days, can't we use the old one?

The new one is going to replace the old one, plus the layout isn't ideal.

I should also mention, for anyone else reading this thread, that lobby contest will be taking place after our update to 1.13, which at the moment of me typing this has no ETA. This means the launch time for Weekly will also be pushed back along with it. However: we do plan to start Weekly as soon as the 1.13 update and Lobby Contest are through! Thanks for all you responding with suggestions, we are taking this all into account.
