Since the Star Citizen community challenged us to a LEGO build off a lot has happened. The Battle of the Bricks event has seen LEGO master builders and newcomers alike recreate classic ships from EVE Online and Star Citizen, with each community keen to prove they are the best when it comes to reimagining spacecraft in the iconic bricks.
The submissions from both communities have been incredible and varied, from the playfully minimal to the mind-blowingly ambitious, via the likes of fascinating LEGO Technic builds.
With all the submissions in as digital renders, now comes the fun part. The best LEGO builds sent in will now be built in LEGO live on a special stream that will bring together the EVE Online and Star Citizen teams. But to mix it up, CCP staff will build the best Star Citizen ship, while the Cloud Imperium crew will make the winning EVE Online spacecraft.
The whole stream will also let us crown the winning submissions and reveal prizes, while raising money for the amazing charity Extra Life, which does vital work funding children’s hospitals. You can also expect plenty of extra daft milestone challenges and donation-driven interaction in the friendliest community clash seen in gaming – some come ready to donate if you can!
To donate during the stream (or right now!) and learn out more about the amazing work of Extra Life, visit our Tiltify campaign page we’ve set up for Battle of the Bricks. It’s an amazing charity, so if you can afford any kind of donation, we’d be eternally grateful if you can send something their way.
So be sure to check in on 22 July at 17:00 UTC, over at the Star Citizen Twitch.
