Team BrickLock

Category: A Pirates' Haven
If you were a Pirate, where would you like to call home? Build a sanctuary that a pirate could call his own. No size restrictions.







With these kind of Island builds I somehow think they will all look the same but they just end up completely different, this looks nothing like my monastery or my lighthouse build.

I haven`t really dived into the pirate theme before but for a first go I think it didn`t turn out too bad.







Originally I expected a lot more rockwork but I really wanted the size of the island to be restricted so that was limited to only a few dozen pieces. The 'haven' is just a little outpost design I came across one day while playing survival games on a pirate themed map and that just stuck in my head for some reason (probably because I got 3 stealth kills in a row). This is just a little outpost for a Pirate to just blow things up with his massive cannon, a map to some treasure, and a bottle of rum in the middle of the ocean. What else could a pirate want?!









That`s it from me. Good luck for everyone else doing this category (and dear GOD have good luck in the Escher category!) Brick OUT!

The build is nice and clean but I don't see it as a real "haven." More like the entrance lookout to the haven. Still, a nice build. Score of 2. ~ Chris.

Anthony, I'll try enlighten you as to why your build may being scoring so low. Overall, it is a nice little clean build. Simple? Yes, but aesthetically it is not too bad. What mainly brought your score down, for me, is your lack of relativity to the category. To me, there is a big difference between a haven/living place and an outpost. One can only do so much on a outpost like the one you built and I doubt that one of the things he can do is live on it. Score: 2

Nice outpost, but like Greyson said, it isn't extremely relevant to the category. Score = 2

Ok, I get it now, I didn`t really see it as being a living quarters but I get where everyone is coming from. Next time I`ll try to be as accurate as I can.

A nice looking build.

Not bad... If I were a judge, I would probably give you a three, but since this is your first time in the genre, I think you did pretty well. The expansion at the top of the tower, with the dark green and the black, looks a little strange, and the rest is sort of plain, but the minimalist details are all very nice.

This is great! I am close to being done with serfs up!
