Challenge: The Grindatron returns!, Update by Doctacosa

The popular Grindatron challenge will be your target for this month! Go to the lobby, enter the challenge section and start gathering items! Returning players, please read on as some balancing changes have been done.

What's the Grindatron?

The Grindatron is this month's challenge, accessible from the lobby. It takes place in its own world, with a fully separate inventory. Every few hours, a new goal happens in the form of a block or item that needs to be provided at the spawn point. Provide the item in time, you get points! However, each action you perform (moving, digging, placing blocks) drains your energy, which is limited!

How it works

Every four hours, a new target is given. For example, "2 x bread", "64 x dirt", or "1 x gold pickaxe". Your goal is to obtain this item and place it in the enderchest that's located at the spawn point, near coordinates 0, 0. If you do it right, you'll get a confirmation and can either continue freely playing to gather more supplies, or wait until the next target appears. You can get a confirmation of the current target at any time by entering /target.

When you're ready, drop the item(s) that are part of the current target in the enderchest, in a single stack. If you're correct, the items will disappear and you'll get a confirmation. Be careful: any and all objects placed in the enderchest at that time will be removed, including those that are not related to the current target!

You only have a limited amount of energy available, which refills at the end of each cycle. The following actions will cause an energy drain:

  • Moving around (riding a vehicle cuts the drain by half)
  • Breaking blocks
  • Placing blocks
  • Dying (large penalty)
  • Fishing

Once you run out of energy, you'll move way slower, won't be able to break some blocks, and all a...
