Celebrating September POTM and GOTM Winners!

Fall is settling in here in Texas, and we’re officially reaching the conclusion of Bash month. We’ve had an awesome 30 days filled with MedZEEval celebrations worldwide! Looking back at this festive month, we’re happy to award our appropriately themed winners of September Garden of the Month (GOTM) and Player of the Month (POTM), as well as announce the criteria for October POTM! Ready to find out which players battled their way to the top this month?!

September GOTM

It’s time to recognize some outstanding Virtual Garden builders! In honor of our MedZEEval themed Bash month, we selected winning gardens that are steeped in history. As always, all winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map. This month we’re happy to award Casa de Santana, organized by Cidinho, and Diezer Grafenschloss, organized by T72! The winning September GOTM gardens appear as follows:

Casa de Santana by Cidinho in the Madeira Islands

The Casa de Santana garden (left) is based on the typical houses of Santana (right), located in the Madeira Islands. 

This garden showcases one of the typical houses of Santana, a beautiful village located in the North Coast of the Madeira Islands. The small houses are composed of natural stone and thatched with straw, serving the locals for centuries as stables and dwellings. Now the area provides a tourist attraction. The region is comprised of 6 parishes, and the people essentially live from agriculture, craftwork, and tradition. In the words of garden creator Cidinho, the mountainous landscapes are dominated by the lush green that characterises the Laurissilva Forest, which was classified as “World Heritage” by the UNESCO, encouraging locals even more to do everything to maintain its beauty, which this garden does its best to show off. 

Diezer Grafenschloss by T72 in Diez, Germany

The Diezer Grafenschloss garden (left) is based on the Grafenschloss castle (right), located in Diez, Germany. 

This garden reached its completion in early August in time for the town of Diez to enjoy a double weekend event. Located in the little town of Diez is the Grafenschloss castle built in 1073. T72 created the garden in order to showcase the town for Munzee players worldwide and invite them to check out the castle. This fits right into Munzee’s spirit of adventure, and we love how he used his garden building skills to showcase what makes his area special. T72 tried to copy the original castle as much as he could in his design in order to make it recognizable for players. The green and blue bar under the castle indicate the Lahnwiesen and the river Lahn.

All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:

Do you know a garden that is worthy of the October GOTM title? We’re asking for players to submit already created gardens for the chance to win any of our upcoming Garden(s) of the Month! Just be sure to follow the rules!

September POTM

In honor of Bash month, we created a special badge for our September POTM winners! This unique POTM badge is eligible for any player to earn regardless of previous wins:

This badge will be awarded at 00:01 MHQ time on Tuesday, October 1 to all players who earned at least 5,000 points from any Clan Weapons activity. That means you still have a few hours left to finish earning your points if you want to pick up this all new badge! Congratulations to all players who battled their way to earning this custom badge, but if you didn’t quite make the cut, then  there is still hope for next month!

October POTM Criteria

Do you use a third party app or website to make your Munzee experience even better? Do you have a favorite reseller who always has what you’re looking for? Well let us know, because this October’s POTM nominations are for those who go the extra mile for the good of the game. We’re looking for you to email nominations to iloveyou@munzee.com for QRazy Contributors!

Although the Freeze Tag Team is always hard at work making the game as great as possible, there are a number of external tools that our players have put together themselves, and we couldn’t be more proud! This is a wide open nomination theme, but we do request that in your nomination emails you include a link to a website, app, etc. so we can confirm the greatness of these players!

A final congratulations to all of our winning GOTM and POTM September players! Bash month has been one for the books, and it’s been a pleasure to get in the MedZEEval spirit with many of you!

Munzee on!
