MCAU is one of the top Minecraft servers in Australia. With over four years of continuous running, it has become the top destination for Australian Minecrafters.
We run a Survival world, Event world, whitelisted Vanilla world, and an exclusive Creative world for donors, plus more! Grief protection will be available to all players to use on Survival.
Our staff team work hard to ensure that your Minecraft experience will be fun and grief-free. If you have been banned and wish to complain, please do so on the Ban Appeals forum rather than by commenting here.
Hey guys, thanks to everyone who participated! It’s time to announce a winner of the build comp, whose building goes to spawn. The runner uppers get a sneak peak of the spawn build, and everyone who participated is winning a small prize as a token of our appreciation for joining in. (You’ll see that prize later, guys!)
Without further ado, the winning build was by…
The runners up are htaliffy, Iyssden, _Zandros.
Winners were judged mostly on how well they fit in with the look of spawn as described by the hints, and a lot of you did such good jobs it was hard to decide on the runner-up winners.
Thanks again to everyone who joined in!
Build comp entries will close and be judged at this time tomorrow night, so get any final changes in and cross your fingers!

For those that haven’t been in the loop, I should first announce that RobotoRaccoon has been promoted to Operations Manager. He is the one that’s been writing and managing all the awesome day-to-day stuff that keeps MCAU ticking along nicely. Roboto has been with MCAU since the very beginning, and he’s one of the most important members of the crew here, and I want to publically thank him for being so awesome! Bravo, Roboto, and congrats on your promotion.
Secondly, we’re no longer accepting Donations. People who currently have an existing donation get to keep their perks, but, once their subscription is cancelled for any reason, players will be demoted back to normal rank. Whilst I felt that we aren’t a pay-to-win server, we are technically in violation of the EULA. So, we’re fixing that, by no longer accepting Donations.
That’s pretty much it. I’ve been playing a lot of 1.8 locally, and I can’t wait for it to be released. See you online! 8)
We’ve had a number of queries about the build competition, and whether or not you can enter it more than once, and come up with the following plan:
You can enter once solo, and once as a team.
Please keep the teams to a maximum of three, and have fun building.
