Concept etc
The true concept was simply to create an in-game take on strategy games. It was really about creating that static look but still trying to display a dynamic take on Minecraft as a creative build. To make it feel more like a game, I made the colors for both teams quite classic with the red and blue, you'll also find health bars to keep the warfare up to date. The whole concept of the map was basically trying to showcase an infiltration from an inquisition that wants to overthrow the blue's base. What the two are fighting for is for the technology of an infinite water pond, which is the main resource for fuel at this level. So I called it FUSI8N, because it's basically a fight for infinite fusion, which the number 8 is representing, or/also known as the infinity symbol ∞.

Starting with the reds, or better explained The Inquisition. They're the enemies, the opposing team, trying to capture the technology of the self spawning water pond. The architecture of the inquisition is very economic, as it appears with a lot of the same shapes all around. I wanted it to make it look like they were running on batteries, massive batteries ready to re-charge at the storage build in the back of their spawn. Because as we already know, the lack of water is the real problem of the battlefield, so saving what you can is key. The inquisition is a small group compared to the other team, but they're a group of believers, and back in history in some regions of the country they were known as barbarians.

Then there is the home team, The Defenders. They were the ones to settle over the infinite water pond, which is labeled with a yellow color - Neutral. Their job is to keep the opposing team away and keep expanding their current supremacy. In quantity they're by miles larger than the inquisition, but little did they take advantage of the yellow hexagons which were set up to give opposing teams a bigger chance to conquer the home team. The map is divided in each team's active turf - what areas they have control under. The yellow hexagons are areas that boost the production of any structure/vehicles, and as we can see most of the yellow hexagons under the control of the defenders are only on their smaller structures, while the inquisition had a greater opportunity to set their base on to a good quantity of boosted hexagons, therefore the opposing team has the better quality.

So the real question is, who do you think will win?

Quantity or quality?

Hi Lindblumen! I'm an editor of China.
I've found your new project [h1]FUSI8N [The Barbarians Are Coming! - Project Contest #12][/h1]. It's really a nice job.
Therefore I'm here to ask if I could repost your project to our website MCBBS:www.mcbbs.net/forum.php.
However, due to the fact that our country has blocked a lot of foreign websites.
So could you allow us create a new Chinese downlink.
I will list your name and the original website clearly.
(Diamond for you :D)
