    What is your preferred staff position?:

    • Builder/Helper

    • Since I’ve admittedly never been in a staff position on a minecraft server before, I’d be willing to begin as a helper to prove myself in this aspect (With the ideal of obtaining a staff position after proving my capabilities).

    Tell us about your previous building experience:

    • Since I have only recently returned to minecraft after an extended 3 year hiatus, the majority of my experience and builds are dated, however I believe that since returning I’ve slowly regained the experience that I had mostly lost. The majority of my building experience was creating arenas and “battle-domes” for myself and friends to PvP in. Moreover, my main motivation in arena creation is to create an experience that balances visual appeal with gameplay. For example, in the forested arena in buildtest, I specifically choose to have a slightly raised bridge in the centre of the map to avoid spawn killing. Moreover, I also choose to select unbendable blocks around the exterior to avoid corner-camping. I believe that the bending plugins provide greater potential for battle arenas and PvP areas that are currently not being taken advantage of. For example, while I believe a1 has great visual appeal, it lacks balance. Certain sections of the map greatly favour some forms of bending over others. For example, water benders are constrained to the central river and are not able to access most of the map. Additionally, the spawn location is poor since it provides little protection and can easily be taken advantage of.

    • I also have previous build experience under the design of other individuals to create large projects such as spawn areas. However, I’d be willing to learn myself to design such areas for future expansions on the server.

    Why do you want this staff position?:

    • I would like this staff position because I’d like to have greater flexibility when creating builds in the future. For example, the server is limited when it comes to the selection of blocks to be used in arena’s as many are not considered bendable and thus, can’t be used. Under the staff position I would ideally be able to include more items to create bigger, better, and more visually appealing area’s/areas. I also believe that the server fails to capitalize on bending which is the main selling point. Including additional mini-games or PvP options (like a 1v1 duel system). These new mini-games or modes could also provide rewards that would act as a large attractor for new players (for example custom items, tags, levels, or cash). The creation/building of more casual-friendly type game modes, which maximise upon the unique quirk of “bending” would expand the player base for this server and deliver a strong selling point. I am well aware that all of these suggestions would also require the assistance of developers to occur, but I believe with a strong team effort the possibilities could be greatly beneficial.

    Additional information (optional): With the collaboration of other members, I assisted in the creation of the 1v1 arenas now present in the 1v1 world.

    Specific Build Ideas

    • This section repeats previously stated points, but in a more direct format
    • Tutorial walkthrough
      • While “/b help” exists, I think creating an obstacle course style walkthrough tutorial for bending abilities would be more entertaining and act as an immersive teaching method for new players who may not understand their abilities.
        • Ex. To teach airbenders to properly use airblast, have them use their abilities to launch themselves through floating islands with signs informing them on how to use the abilities. The obstacle course would also be themed to the air and sky (e.g white stained glass, snow blocks, etc)
    • Mini-games which emphasise bending abilities and system ***
      • Good attraction for casual/newer players

      • Easy selling point to people who may not be familiar with avatar
    • 1v1 style duel arenas ***
      • Easy duels between players that offer a variety of small arenas to choose from
    • ***: Build ideas with a “***” may include some form of reward for winning such as custom items, tags, levels, or cash)
    Please attach/link images of your builds.

    • I unfortunately lost my old builds when I migrated from my old Macbook air to my current PC

    • 1v1 arenas in the concept world (1550x, -1550z on concept world)

    • Spawn building for BankSuisse lands (-1268x, 11172z on survival world)
