Competition

It’s finally time for the all new Arena Warriors building competition. Everyone loves arenas, and having fresh new content to fight through doesn’t come as often as we’d like. Many players have come to us over time, asking to contribute by building structures, but due to the nature of our plugins and such, it has been difficult to allow players to do so. An idea finally hit us, and that was to host a building competition in a creative world map, and allow anyone to enter and build their most ideal mob arena!

Your goals as a competitor:

– Your goal, is to build your idea arena of any type that would feasibly fit into the current roster of Vox Populi’s arenas. Some arena types include: MobArenas, PvP Arenas, Wizard Arenas, or Spleef Arenas.

– You should make something fun, that anyone can enjoy playing in.
