Battle of the Builds is an ongoing creativity, building-focused game show created and hosted by MinecraftYoshi26. Contestants, known as "builders", compete building-focused challenges that aim to test their creative skills. Through various different types of challenges, builders get eliminated through main challenges and Build Offs. Generally, poor building and creative skills result in elimination.

The game show is an original idea created by MinecraftYoshi26. Its format originated from how MinecraftYoshi26 wanted to create a game show that focused on building and creativity, as one on the server did not exist. The title was selected from suggestions by daltdisneyland.

Format

Main Challenge

The Main Challenge is a challenge that all of the builders compete in order to win. The builders either compete as individuals or in teams. For individuals, the two worst performers in the Main Challenge (or by specific criteria) is automatically sent to the Build Off. If there are teams, the whole team that did the worst goes to the Build Off.

The builder who does the best in the Main Challenge is the declared winner of the challenge and receives a choice of prize, money or an advantage in the next challenge. In individual challenges, the top three builders who perform the best are identified. Then, out of those three, the builder who performed the best overall in the challenge is declared the winner of the challenge and receives the challenge's prize. In teams, all members of the winning team are declared winners and the builder who did the best according to the host and, if applicable, other judges is declared the "Best of the Best" and receives the prize. If all other members of the team can agree who to give the title to, it is given to that builder.

Build Off

Competitors in the Build Off are given a large, empty plot to build in.

The Build Off is a secondary challenge in an episode to which builders who fare the worst in the Main Challenge are sent to compete. The Build Off is a speed build challenge in which the builders are given 10 minutes to complete a specified build using any blocks from the creative inventory. The first two minutes of the 10 minute build time allow the competitors to look up images online for ideas, if they would like to use it to do so. After the time is over, contestants must close it The type of build is chosen from a set of predetermined options visible to all builders. Each builder, starting with the one that fared the worst in the Main Challenge, chooses a certain number of builds to veto. The rest of the build options are then shuffled and the build for the Build Off is chosen by random selection.

Each competitor is given a large, empty plot that cannot be seen by the other opponent(s). At the end of the time, the host and, if applicable, other judges, choose the build they like the least and that builder is then eliminated.

Rules

Builders are prohibited from using staff powers, custom items brought in, and breaking any rules in challenges. Plagiarism of builds is prohibited. Using fast-clickers, schematic, or any other modification of vanilla building mechanics are not allowed. All rules and penalties are up to the discretion of the host.

Cast

Applications opened on August 23, 2019 and closed on August 28, 2019. The cast is tentatively set at 13 contestants.

"Incomplete Ingredients"
September 7, 2019

Main Challenge ("Incomplete Ingredients"): Builders must build a school by only placing the permitted blocks on a list that only listed blocks that have a hitbox smaller than 1 meter by 1 meter by 1 meter. Builders may also use any items from the creative inventory, defined as objects that exist only within the player's inventory and hands and cannot be directly placed. Builders can only place blocks that were on that list; however, if they placed blocks and used items that would create blocks that would take the full space, that is allowed. For example, placing multiple snow layers on top of each other results in a snow block that takes up the full space of a block is allowed. Builders are allocated 20 minutes to build. The builds are judged on their interior, exterior, creativity, and functionality.

"One Man's Trash"
September 7, 2019

As the episode was preparing to begin, _O_OM3GA_O_ left and thus quit the game.

Main Challenge ("One Man's Trash"): Builders must choose nine blocks that they deem as difficult to build with, with a majority having to be blocks that can be placed standalone. Blocks that require additional blocks to be placed, such as flowers or end crystals, may not be selected. All blocks would be then shuffled into 11 different kits. Each kit would be hidden when chosen; however, the heads of the builders whose blocks are in the kit are shown. After all kits have been made, all builders would select which kit they would like to build with based off of the heads in a random order. After all kits have been selected, builders are allocated 20 minutes to build a theater. The builds are judged on their interior, exterior, creativity, and functionality.

  • Top 3: _HeavenAngel_, daltdisneyland, mine_man_
  • Winner: _HeavenAngel_
  • Main Challenge losers: Echohue, Red_Ray, Valkorion314

There were two builds up for renovation, and every builder privately voted on which build to use before being allocated into teams. The one with the most votes was renovated. The provided blocks that teams had to use were 5 detector rails, 10 white glazed terracotta, 10 anvils, 15 daylight sensors, 15 slime blocks, 20 magma blocks, 20 blue ice, 25 prismarine stairs, and 30 brown mushroom blocks. The builds are judged by their interior, exterior, and use of provided blocks.
