Episode XVII: The Battle For Endor

Recommended Posts

Two announcements. First, the map is delayed today because the Rebels didn't post any movement directions :sadnew: I'll try to have everything updated tomorrow.

Second, due to the delays these past few days, and due to both teams seeming to be a little over taxed right now, we are going to extend this "week" to be 2 weeks long. So the next deadline will be April 1st (no joke), not March 25th. Hopefully this will give everyone some breathing room and allow us all to take a little more time enjoying the building process. Have fun!

Thanks for your patience everyone, Game Updates!

The Empire is on a Plains and Forest square and knocked the Rebel score back 2 points and dropped their movement down 2 also.

The Rebels are on a Mountain and Forest square and can now move across water.

Remember, there is no deadline this Sunday. The next deadline is April 1st.

UPDATES!

The Empire collected the bonus on R22 and get 3 extra XP and movement points. They are on a Plains and Forest square.

The Rebels landed on a Plains and Forest square.

Also, both teams received this message from their leadership:

"As the battle nears its conclusion, time seems to move faster and faster, events spiraling out of control.  For each 'movement,' teams may now move through 2 unknown squares, or 4 revealed squares."

Updates!

The Empire is on a Forest and Shoreline square. You were 1 movement point short of your requested movement so I got you as close as I could.

The Rebels are on a Forest square. You had 1 extra movement beyond what you requested so I continued in the same direction of travel.

Updates!

It was bound to happen to one team sooner or later. But the Rebels were not able to muster a build this week and therefore do not move at all. They are still on a Forest square. With the Empire's bonus of -2 movement for the Rebels, that means they now have a net 5 movements for next week if they submit a build.

The Empire is on a Forest square with a tiny bit of Plains.

Major Updates!

The Empire is on a Forest square, and cannot access the Shield Generator yet. They still need to find their own switch.

The Rebels are on a Forest square, and have unlocked access to the Shield Generator! If they reach the Generator first, they will receive a 25XP bonus as stated in the main rules, and the game will end.

For those interested, here's what the map looked like before the teams moved, but with the bonuses now revealed visible:

MapWeek24b

The Rebels specific right and down, but they also specified that they wanted to collect bonuses along the way. As stated in the main rules, if directs are vague moving towards bonuses will trump. This caused the Rebels to move up towards the SG bonus rather than down.

Physical prizes are also available! The 75178 Jakku Quadjumper will go to the player with the highest amount of XP earned during this episode, and 75183 Darth Vader Transformation to the player who submitted the most builds during the episode, regardless of XP gained (should that player be identical with the first winner, the second prize will instead go to the player with the second-highest amount of builds).

And a reminder about the prizes. There are more than just bragging rights at stake!

This is it everyone! The final scores are in so the final movements have been decided. We are going to let this week play out to allow anyone who wants to build 1 last time for the contest can do so. You won't earn movement points (unless the Rebels lose their minds and they go away from the Shield Generator). But you will earn XP for your team.

The Empire is on a Forest square. The Rebels are on a Forest and Plains square.

So ... it looks like the rebels took a break and we have one more week?

It looks like we didn't post movement instructions this week since it was assumed to be a moot point, but we'd like to use our movement this week to get as close to the shield generator as possible...

Based on the last map update it looked like you were still 4 squares away?  I might be reading it wrong, though.  @MKJoshA??

The Rebels had movement points to use from last week. They still get to use those even though they don't have a build this week. Without a build, they just need to post somewhere else (like here) to land on the generator. Basically, Rebels have successfully reached the generator and the game it over. Time to count up the scores!

Alright, final updates! And with that, this contest is over! Scores have been tallied.

Rebels: 81 points from weekly entries + 116 bonus points - 6 bonus points + 25 reaching SG first bonus = 216 points

Empire: 88 points from weekly entries + 33 bonus points = 121 points.

So Rebels win by a landslide! All Rebels who participated will receive this tag 26970706609_2be79188e2_o.jpg to commemorate their victory.

Gubi0222 scored 29 points and wins the 75178 Jakku Quadjumper

Gubi0222 and Elementary both submitted 8 entries. Since Gubi0222 already is winning the 1st category, that means Elementary wins 75183 Darth Vader Transformation

@Gubi0222 and @elementary please send your name, address, country, and phone number to @BEAVeR to receive your prizes.

 

The following people will receive XP:

Brickwolf 2
Commander Beltar 8

Goatman461 6
Gubi0222 29
LegoRacer1 8
LucasLaughing 13

Congrats to the rebels for their well deserved victory, and a huge thanks to @MKJoshA!  This episode was his idea, and he did a lot of work behind the scenes to make sure it was successful.

Thanks also to @goatman461 for helping with the judging despite a very busy real life, and thanks to all of you builders for sticking with us over the past 26 weeks and making this a great episode!

Before the episode launched, I built the scenes to illustrate each bonus; I thought I'd post them all here, just for fun:

Huge thanks to MKJoshA and all the Judges for running the contest :thumbup:, just by looking at the full map it's clear it was a big task for everyone involved. I really loved the format of the game, it also encouraged a lot more team communication. It's been fantastic building alongside everyone and definitely can't wait for SoNE 2.0!
