Microsoft MakeCode

[Announcement] We're doing a Minecraft Speedrun (yes, really)

Hey folks!

Join @livcheerful, @jwunderl, @shakao, @danielm, @hassan, and I for a very special livestream in which we will be speedrunning minecraft! Have any of us speedrun minecraft before? Definitely not. But don’t fear, dear forum user, as we will be using the power of coding to make it through.

What - Minecraft Speedrun (with coding)
When - 1:00 PM PDT on Wednesday, August 25th
Where -

The video will be uploaded to YouTube afterwards so don’t worry if you can’t make the livestream. This also isn’t the last time we’ll be doing this.

We’ll be using the following rules for the speedrun:

  1. Must be in survival the entire time
  2. No using slash commands
  3. No using the execute block (it just runs slash commands)
  4. No spawning end portals (must find a stronghold)
  5. No using the kill block to kill the ender dragon
  6. No bringing in prewritten code
  7. Everything else is fine

Additionally, we will be working in teams of two!

Tune in tomorrow, it’s sure to be weird.
