Build contests are always a good time.  Two (or more) creative minds clashing on the battlefield of architecture, to see who can concoct the most awe-inspiring structure in the shortest amount of time, always seems to draw a crowd.  Today, we have a special treat in this, the most sacred of build-offs!

YouTuber GazamoNetwork has come up with an incredibly clever form of build contest, and it is amazing to watch!  Contestants have a set time to build the most impressive structure they can manage, but there's a slight twist - viewers decide who wins!  That's right, you are the judges!  So be sure to give this video a look, choose your winner, and vote!

I wonder if this is cool or not.  I'll check it out...
The fact of the matter is......what you see it as, but not only what you see it as, but how you see it as.

Cool map!  I say Cauliflower's was the most impressive.  However, they both did really well at building.  I'm pretty good at building myself, but in only one hour, I am not sure I could do something like that (I still can build fast, though).

Wow, TOTAL ripoff of "Minecraft Quick Build Challenge." Pretty upset that this unoriginal, badly made and badly edited ripoff of MQBC got to front page.

I actually think the editing of this is much better. As for originality, they certainly didn't make this post. It was just a matter of what got spotted by the Minecraftforum people first.

That is actually wrong, as this video had 18 views before it was posted to the forums. They didn't make the post, they made the video, which is bad enough. It lacks creativity, which is what "creative" mode is all about.

I know for a fact that this video had at least five thousand views before achieving the front page. And most certainly they have done a unique take on MQBC. This seems more... professional.

18 views? That made me laugh (no offense) This video was front page on Planetminecraft.

About creativity, screw that. That is like saying I have copyright on fiction books. "You can never make a fiction book ever cause I said no!" It's a minecraft build battle. How the heck else are they supposed to do it?

Yeah, yeah, it's a great build contest.
But when do we get an actual content update
for Minecraft? All we've gotten were a bunch
of updates that fixed a few bugs each.
No, I will NOT feed your dragon. I do not CARE about your dragon. I will not give you +1 rep for no good reason, I will not subscribe to your channel just because it exists, and I will not become part of your fanboy "army".

I agree with you Koopa.

RageGaming actually did this. The topics were also chosen by viewers.
Who needs a signature? Not me, thats for sure.

Look at this: http://www.minecraft...Redstone_Update

(It's the Minecraft Wiki page on content for 1.5... it looks like another gigantic update!)
Define Cute (choose 1):   A) Creepers B) Aerbunnies C) Herobrine. If you chose A): You appeal to destruction and to stereotypes.   If you chose B): You are a perfectly normal person, and enjoy the Aether Mod. If you chose C): Please leave the planet now before you set off a nuclear warhead--no one enjoys mass murders, however nice they might seem to you.

This is not an original idea, it has been done hundreds of times before. Why do they get front page when people do it all the time? Show some support to the little guys.

Its as if the front page writers just go "Hey, a building challenge series, I will put this on the front page of MF and say it is a original idea without checking for any other building challenges!!"
I find it hard how the writer even missed the hundreds/thousands of other build challenges.

Lets compare this to MQBC by RageGamingVideos.
Both have viewer voting
Both have a different topic every episode
Both build in predefined, next-to-eachother areas.
Both are running a  'Winner stays in' system currently.
Rage's series came before this. A long time before this. Running on RGVs and MachinimaRealm.

Now tell me this idea is:
