MCME 10 Year Anniversary Events

Minecraft Middle-earth
10 October 2010 - 10 October 2020

10 Year Anniversary Events
Hello MCME'ers new and old, I am proud to present to you the MCME 10 Year Anniversary Events! That's right, we have been building for 10 years now after founding the project in Minecraft Alpha 1.1. There are only a few people who can say that they have been here from the very beginning, but if you were we would like to see you at these events so we can celebrate the past and success of this project and community. We have put extra effort into these events to make them the best ever, so here is the full list of events we have planned for you.

Note on times: All events use Universal Time (UTC) to avoid confusion. For example, the UK +1 hour and Central Europe is +2 hours. To find out what it is in your local time, Google it or use this time converter: The Time Zone Converter If an event doesn't have an exact time yet, it will be announced closer to the date.

Anniversary Celebration & Award Ceremony
Saturday 10 October, 6pm UTC
(Hosted by Mapthor and Awaywind) (Fireworks by Smaug_Niphredil)
Celebrate the 10th Anniversary with the Annual Awards, speeches from long serving members, and a firework show. See this post for more information and how to vote in the Annual Awards: MCME 10th Anniversary Celebration and Awards

Anniversary Item Hunt
Starting Saturday 10 October, 1pm UTC

Each of the Valar have lost some items on the server and they need help to find them! Help Smaug find his stick, Eriol find his voxel brush, and Credoo find his fishbowl, as well as more! A clue will be announced when this event starts and it will lead you to the first item, when you get to the item you will find the next clue. Message @givet10 on Discord with screenshots of all the items to win!

Helm’s Deep Battle
Starting Sunday 11 October, 6.30pm UTC

Just like the good ole Node days we have brought back the Helm’s Deep Battle. If you have seen the video or been there it will be just the same. You will fight to defend the Hornburg and save the free people of Middle Earth. Though this will be the first to happen many more will come over the course of the coming weeks.

The Shire Orienteering Competition
Starting on Wednesday 14 October, 8pm UTC

Hosted by @FoxySeamus and @Smaug_Niphredil this will be a race around The Shire. You will start at Bag-end and be given the location of the next checkpoint, when you get to the checkpoint you will be told where the next one is. However, not all checkpoints will be located in the centre of each town...

24 Hour Hide and Seek
Starting on Thursday 15 October
How sneaky are you? Can you get around unseen, or are you more of a run around and evade kind of person. Whatever your play style may be you have a chance to be the most sneaky person on MCME. With @Monster_Duck being the host make sure to be there on the 15th and have a fun time for 24 hours of constant Hide and Seek.

Roman PvP
Starting on Friday 23 October

It's back and better than ever, we have many new game types and places to get your anger out on your friends. This time around we are starting in a new map, a place that will both leave you in awe and pain as you fight for your life. After this we move onto our normal PvP and compete for the first place title to become the best PvPer on MCME.

Osgiliath Wall Build
Starting on Saturday 17 October

We all miss the beloved build days well here is a version you will love. We will be assisting @mask98 and @Rogue_Scholar within Osgiliath to try and push for the completion of the wall. If we are lucky it will be complete. This is a chance to reminisce on the old days and help leave your mark on MCME.

Pig Race
Starting on Sunday 18 October
(Hosted by Soarz9)
This is no normal race, but one that takes physical and mental strength to complete. On your trusty swine you will race from Calembel to Methrast. Though how you get there is up to you, with there being only start and finish points you will need to be aware of where you are at all times. Good Luck and may the best baconator win.

Phil Dragash Audiobook - The Return of the King
Starting on Monday 19 October, 7pm UTC

Join myself, @Smaug_Niphredil, to listen to my favourite chapter of the Return of the King! Chapter One - Minas Tirith. Read by the amazing Phil Dragash, with excellent impressions and the soundtrack from the film, we will follow the path of Gandalf and Pippin from the border of Anorien and Rohan, all the way up to the citadel of Minas Tirith. This path will also enable us to see the wonderful progress happening in Anorien.

Old Moria Tour
Times to be Determined
(Hosted by ooitsbirdo)
As is tradition with every year it wouldn’t be MCME without a “Great Tour”. Though this time around its a tad different. Instead of doing a three day event walking around the main server, we thought it be cool to go back to our roots and see what has brought us here to where we are today. We look at where we are at currently with Moria and see these great big halls, paths and connectors. But what did we have as a base or starting point? With our famous Designer and amazing Great Tour Guide you can see it with your own eyes in a way until now was not possible.

Elytra Race
Times to be Determined

This is an old one but we have resurrected it. With many layers and paths to take you will fly with the eagles and see many wonders with this new game. But be careful or you just might falter and fall, only one can win so you need to be the quickest.

Anniversary Survival
Starting Saturday 10 October*
(Created by Eriol, Bart, and Soarz)
This year we have a little something for everyone, and many have asked for it so we have delivered. Whether it's with friends or just solo you can battle your fellow MCMErs or just survive in the brand new survival map. We don’t wanna spoil it for you so make sure to give it a go.
*IP announced at end of Annual Awards

Closing Ceremony/Octoberfest
Starts on 23 October at 10pm UTC

This is the wrap up to all this Anniversary, and to finalize our 10 years of amazing time together. And with that we have an after party that will be hosted by @Iru_. We will have a bit of fun and more details will follow what time comes closer.
