    This maze is not made with hedges and wardrobes.

    It's made with pure, unadulterated, solid awesomeness!!! :eek:

    Net is nothing short of a crazy genius, and the rest of the 4B crew follow close behind.

    Thank you for yet another amazing event and masterful creation.

    I took a few pictures of the maze as it was being built. This is a time lapse recording of the build.

    Congratulations to all the winners!

    The maze was hit by the PaxLair tornado hard, but it is repaired now. There are some new holes, but it is for the good, it adds to the challenge! Remember to use /stuck, if you get stuck;) And use /walk (or simply '/') if you get lag issues - it is harder to accidentally fall over due to the lags in walk mode.

    Event #2 - Count the statues

    When: May 10th, 19:00 UTC (2pm CDT). Gathering starts half an hour before
    Where: You can walk here, we are next to the moon tower in down town of PaxLair or /zone Sindariya Tyelma (or /zone Net)
    Prizes:
    1st place - 15.000 gold
    2nd place - 7.500 gold
    3rd place - 5.000 gold

    Rules:
    1) Count the statues of Virtues and Chaos hidden all around the maze.
    2) Whisper to Net the numbers (/w Net, Virtues: X, Chaos: Y)
    3) Everyone can whisper their counts to me only 3 times, both counts must be correct. After three unsuccessful guesses you are out.
    4) Do not run on the hedges
    5) Be nice, do not use exploits
    Not everything fits into the rules, I (Net) have the final word.

    Useful tips:
    Use /walk mode if the game lags for you.
    Hold space bar longer to be able to jump higher
    Scroll into first person view if camera zooming in and out because of obstacles makes you dizzy

    So, in the maze was
    17 Virtue Statues and 16 Chaos statues

    Jynx was the first and only one to get both numbers correct, but she refused to claim the prize.
    River Beauchamp, Kael Sireon, Selene Noctua, and Tari Silimsure guessed one number right and were awarded with 5k gold consolidation prize.

    Big thanks to all coming to the event and better luck next time. The prize money will be moved towards the next event.

    And thank everyone who provided me with their statues.

    Another Win for the Maze. Again only Jynx solved the maze but Grant MacGregor was at least close. Many gave up before. The jackpot is growing.

    We will give you a last chance to beat the maze and find the correct answer to the question:​
    How many Statues of Virtue and Chaos are hidden in the maze?
    We will leave the maze open till thursday midnight CST. Take your time to visit it when ever it suits you. To solve the maze write down your answer here with your numbers of Statues like following:​
    Virtues: XXX Chaos: YYY​
    You will have only one chance. Don't edit your posts. And yes you can win gold. The first one that posted the correct numbers gains 20.000 gold, each follower with correct answer will gain 2.000 gold. The correct answer will revealed on Friday and you will know when I will be online to give you your gold.​
    If you post anything else than a guess, I will decide if it gets moderated. If you have any questions, ask please per PM.​
    Good Hunt.​
