World of Warcraft launched the "Mists of Pandaria" expansion today - of course, many of us here will still be playing Minecraft!  Still, what if we could combine the two somehow?  Maybe have some Pandaria in our Minecraft game?

We're not talking a mod - we're talking a build contest!  A build contest with a free XBOX 360 on the line, plus some really sweet 3D printouts, courtesy of Shapeways!  Want to know more?  Want to get your hands on a free gaming console?  Maybe some other sweet prizes to go with it?  Let's talk contests!

The Contest will run from September 25th - Midnight PST, October 25th and is open to everyone (details below).

How To Enter: Create a structure in Minecraft related to 'Mists of Pandaria', export the model with 3D build exporting tool "MineWays", and upload to Shapeways, with the tag "Curse-Contest_MoP"; this way, everyone will be able to see your awesome design, and the Shapeways guys will be able to judge your entry effectively!  

Be sure to include the tag, it is very important!

Prizes:  Grand Prize winner will receive a $300 Shapeways gift certificate, and an XBOX 360.  The grand prize winner will be picked by none other than the silver voicemin of the Minecraft Forum himself, lead editor Sacheverell!

3 runners up will be selected by Shapeways; models or builds with the most 'favorites' on Shapeways with the tag "Curse-Contest_MoP".  Each runner up will receive a $100 Shapeways gift certificate, so they can 3D Print their Minecraft creations!

Get the full list of contest details by clicking here, including eligibility, entry requirements, and other details

So, to break that down:
  • Make an awesome 'Mists of Pandaria' build in Minecraft
  • Use the Mineways extraction tool to export the build from in-game
  • Upload it to Shapeways with the tag "Curse-Contest_MoP"
  • Get ready to win some sweet stuff!

This contest is running from today (September 25th, 2012) through October 25th, ending exactly at midnight, PST (GMT -8)!  That's a whole month to get your build on, and win some sweet loot.  We look forward to seeing your awesome entries!  

Did I mention that there's a FREE XBOX 360 as a prize?!

I know it's still Minecraft-related, but there sure has been a lot of WoW stuff on the Minecraft Wiki news this year.
Make texture packs? Tired of people telling you to upload better screencaps? Send me a message with a link to your pack & I can help. (Check my Planet Minecraft blogs for photography examples). http://www.planetmin...ber/likalaruku/

OMG!! AN XBOX 360!?!??     no. Why would I wan't one When I have a computer that's better?? I personally see no point. Apart from the gift certificate. Plus, who plays WoW and wants an xbox? The majority are computer nerds.

I have no chance of winning. I can build well, but an epic stucture from MoP I'm not going to attempt.

So, I take it we 360 gamers are kinda out of luck on this one then. (Curse you microsoft's ban on modding!! lol) Still, best of luck to anyone who enters! I look forward to reading about some awesome builds. I've never tried to make anything with an oriental bend to it. Maybe now's the time!

I'll be submitting a build, but I'd like to know if we can use 3rd party textures as well?

Wow, as if the super-prominent ads haven't been enough for the past month, now they're infiltrating the actual news posts! Run before they get access to the actual game! Oh wait... [img]http://static.minecraftforum.net//public/style_emoticons/default/tongue.png[/img]

Personally, I think pandas in WoW is soooo stupid.  Glad I quit playing that game after the icy throne thing.  Flying was cool, the expansions after were lame.

I believe it was WoW that made Curse successful.  They gotta back it.  I know that's how *I* know Curse...

OmG...

WoW everywhere....

Do Blizzard pay you so much?
- Oh it can't be SO much, the prize is just a 360...

Please, no more WoW stuff in the MINECRAFT Forums, if I'd want to join a WOW contest, I'd go to the WoW site (not that I want to..).
