The Pro mode receives more time than normal games plus world editing tools and their names scrambled! This is the ultimate build battle.

You can purchase super votes in the Build Battle lobby store. Super votes allow you to choose which theme you use in a game.

Guess The Build

Each player gets an opportunity to build based on a theme they choose. The rest of the players guess in the chat on what is being built. The sooner you guess, the more points you get!

You can equip cosmetics you own by clicking on one in the shop. It will be equipped for your next game.
