    The boat MUST be a creation you or anyone else can accurately replicate.
    You must participate in the times that your region will be fighting. No reschedules!
    Staff will be spectating, so your actions will be taken into account.

    Flood rules still apply, be sportsmanlike!

    You will be judged on:
    Flair (How good your boat looks)
    Defense (How well the boat appears to hold up)
    Buoyancy (How well your boat appears to float)
    Endurance (How far into the round your boat lasts)
    Stratagem (How you fight other players on your boat)

    Prizes

    As there are not enough fighters currently signed up for the tournament, we will require more images from the entrees for judging instead. The next time we hold another Battle of the Builders, we will bring back a time and date to fight if more people sign up. Thank you.

    Fully expect this contest to be scuffed, as this is my first time organizing something like this lol.

    The concurrent entrees and their points are as below.

    Jackattack225: 12 (1st)
    Flair: 5
    Defense: 3
    Buoyancy: 4
    Boat
    The way the boat falls apart offers extra props to stand on, and it seems like the boat can hold up, but its more designed with some tricks up its sleeve. It looks pretty buoyant, especially with the extra props below and on the sides of it. The idea of having a boat that gives you more utility as it gets destroyed is excellent.​


    Zzoppa: 11.5 (2nd)
    Flair: 3
    Defense: 3.5
    Buoyancy: 5
    Boat
    The boat is very long, which provides options for where to stand. It will definitely get a couple of eyes on it, which is also a bad thing. If someone were elevated higher or knew where to shoot, they could leave the barriers intact. This might be able to be mitigated by the amount of buoyant props in the core. Definitely seems like a bullet sponge.​

    Staps: 11 (3rd)
    Flair: 3
    Defense: 3
    Buoyancy: 5
    Boat
    I sort of like the shape of the boat, looks like a big arrow. However depending on how its faced towards the enemy it could really be demolished. It looks very buoyant, and the countermeasure prop looks incredibly helpful in keeping it alive.​

    Firedox: 10 (4th)
    Flair: 2.5
    Defense: 3.5
    Buoyancy: 4
    Boat
    Looks like a mix of props put together, but it has a pretty good theme of defense. However, if someone were to know where to shoot with a sniper it could be taken down easily from the inside out. It does look like the countermeasure special prop could aid that, however. From the props I see inside, it looks pretty buoyant.​

    Connor: 10 (4th)
    Flair: 3
    Defense: 2
    Buoyancy: 5
    Boat
    First image with two boats, and I like to see different ways to fight. The defense, however, is extremely questionable. I remember when table meta was a thing, and its glory days are definitely no longer here. With the right weapons and focus it seems really easy to be able to get those boats off of the map before the round finishes. However, they both look really buoyant on their own.​
