Battle of the Skyjackers
January 22, 2015
A long time ago, a world called Aeres was torn apart by a gruesome war between renegade monsters called Scrit and a confederation of fighters, nomads and builders. In the end, the latter prevailed, but at high costs.
As a new siege by the monsters was feared, the people from the confederation organized themselves and built a fortress on the rubble of their former city. They called it the Vortex. With this fortress, the confederation members managed to protect both their living environment and the nomads’ travel routes.
For hundreds of years, the ravages of time took their toll on the steel structures. In addition, repeated attacks from skyjackers destroyed the Vortex more and more until, in the end, the nomads had to give it up.
Nowadays, two hostile skyjacker clans are using the Vortex as their base, while a merciless fight for domination of the structure has broken out. They seem to be distracted from the fact that the Scrit have returned…
Reach 15 assists in a mode of your choice on Vortex by Kalchas and earn yourself 1,000 Force-Points!

They’ve made your eyes square with awe and excitement, you’ve had hours of fun and emotion on them, feeling joy for each victory and despair for each crushing defeat… we are talking about your favorite Brick-Force maps, of course!
You’ve voted for your favorite map on Facebook, and time has now come to announce the results.
The Map of the Year 2014 is Tsingtao by Monster878. Congratulations to him, who wins a full special force outfit and the weapon of his choice!
During the vote counting and verification process, we have noticed a high number of false "likes" from various fake Facebook pages, both on “Ractory” by ReVeNzZ and “WorldStar” by Clone117. It is hard to formally identify who organized these false likes, which may come from the owner of the map themselves, but also and most probably from supporters and/or opponents trying to get the map disqualified. In the end, we have taken the decision to disqualify both maps from the competition.
We hope this will serve as a lesson to all cheating players who deem it funny to spoil a fun event competition by using unfair manipulations, such as creating fake accounts, trying to get opponents accused, and orchestrating hatred campaigns. The only thing this shameful behaviour leads to is delays in result announcements, and possibly your favourite map getting disqualified. We are currently working on formally identifying these mischievous players, who will receive exemplary sanctions.

Today is a great day as for the first time ever in the history of Brick-Force we are introducing a whole clan, that has more than earned its place in the spotlight.
Today, we are directing all attention to a clan named S.T.A.R.S.
The Special Tactics And Rescue Squad was founded back in 2012 by Clone117, who is still its leader today. Currently, the clan consists of 30 members, who stand out because they stick together, are helpful and very fair towards others. Besides, they strictly stick to all official and moral rules.
Besides winning loads of contests, Maps of the Week and Brick-Hero honors, some members even undertook some quite innovative and extraordinary things such as climbing the highest point of Cargo Quay or building a map out of 1 million bricks. All these things combined have earned them a far-reaching reputation within the Brick-World.
You think your clan deserves this kind of attention, too? Then apply for a Clan Heroes spot by sending an email to email@example.com and add the subject “Clan Heroes”. Write a detailed application text and give us some reasons why it is your clan that deserves the next spotlight!

“Another one of those cowboys… did you hear about it?” The barmaid was sitting down with her guests and whispered so that nobody else knew what she was saying. “The Sheriff caught one a few days ago. He had taken a whole box of our best bourbon and was strapping it to his horse’s back as he was caught! Damn rascal! I hope he’ll rot in prison for a while.”
Life in prison was everything but comfortable, and there was absolutely nothing to do. Not much crime happened in Brick County so currently, the cowboy was the only prisoner the Sheriff had, and they were both bored out of their minds. One day, he suggested to his prisoner that he would let him go if he played a few rounds of chess against him and won.
"Well then”, said the cowboy and took a last draw from his cigar before throwing it on the dirty cell floor to put it out. "If you really dare to challenge me…"
Win 3 matches on BigChess by sniper_mrk and earn yourself the Thief’s Bunch of Keys (30 days) to get out of prison!

Today we are continuing our series “Brick-Heroes”, which focuses on you, the players. Every Friday, we’ll put the spotlight on a member of the community because, after all, you’re the ones who make this game so great. You deserve a bit of recognition.
This week, we turn our attention to Didavi!
As an experienced player, Didavi recently decided to found and lead his own clan called ~DiDi~. Furthermore, he owns a successful YouTube channel, on which he regularly posts commented Brick-Force videos.
Although Christmas is already some weeks ago, our Brick-Hero still likes to show himself in his Christmas outfit. If he’s not wielding either the Spider 36, Hornet 96 or the Locust 5, you can normally see him carrying his favorite weapon, the Burning Hurricane. We will offer the Burning Hurricane in the shop for 25% off all week!
If you’d like to play with or against Didavi, you should look for him in mode Team Deathmatch on one of the standard maps. By the way, he has already created some of his own maps. Go on and check them out now!
You want to become a Brick-Hero, too? Then get creative and tell us why you think we should choose you to spotlight next! Send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Brick-Heroes”.
