The Greatests Babel Towers!

The Greatests Babel Towers

I decided to make a topic to immortalize our greatests constructions, the masterpiece of babel game mode.
Feel free to post your greatest creations and to comment about it.

About Battering Ram Towers:
Those towers are opened in its back so they can be continually built, even though they have reached the sky. The most efficient model, designed by me, requires floors 6 blocks high and 6 blocks wide, while its lenght may vary from 4 blocks to 20 or even more. This allows the tower to be easily repaired and also means that the builders are protected from snipers for most of the time (by first building a security wall 2 blocks high when new floor needs to be built and then making the front wall 7 blocks high). The construction time may vary according to the lenght of the tower and how many players are building it. Most of the times, I am able to build, alone, faster than the enemy a tower as the green one down here.
The biggest problem is that, as there is just one block wide stair, it can be easily blocked by a griefer player, and you would really waste a lot of time trying to make another way up. This has happened to me several times and, fortunately, there is always another outside stair that may be built.


1. The Blue Battering Ram Tower

Its construction was aided by the team, and led us to the absolute victory:

2. The Green Battering Ram Tower

It was all built by myself, while the team was trying to build a diagonal stair. So it is smaller than the blue one, and took less time to be built.

3. The Great Stealth Tower

Designed and built by Keoni, this tower is invisible on the map. It's also huge and hard to be destroyed.

4. The Great Gravestone Tower

Projected and built by Keoni: "Tadaa, heres the great gravestone-tower crumpet and me build on the Babel_Eu server… its still standing at that time for those who want to have a look :D"

5. The Great Blue Tower

A tower projected and built by Keoni. Complete closed rear side with internal stairs. As the Ram Towers, it is safe to build, easy to repair and hard to destroy.

6. The Great Staircase

The most built stairs in Babel. It's design makes it simple and relatively fast to be build. Although, builders may get easily shot while constructing it, and without side scaffolds, it's very hard to be repaired.

Cool towers. I’m actually amazed you could keep these up. most of my towers are taken out by smgs and when I’m on most of the team build really crappy towers.

I’ll try to see if I have any babel tower shots in my game footage.

Awesome stuff, thanks for posting.

Very cool! I like the strong design which will resist the disastrous smg fire. Keep up the good work!

I like the design, its strong and looks awesome, i built one of those today with Gabrui, and yes it is easy to repair.
It can take several minutes to finish, but i really like its strong design.

And this is the result of a intentionally griefed blocked tower, it is almost impossible to repair and hard to climb:



And even though it don't get intentionally griefed, anothers players may not follow its design and make it messy.

You should get on the irc when that kinda stuff happends.

a tower design I like is building 2 4-block wide walls with a 2 block gap in between them and just placing a ‘step’ 2 blocks up every time

Where is a pic of a spaghetti tower?

“The Great Wall/tower Of Babel”


Thanks for sharing,
It is a tough tower too, a really good design.
I used to build Wall Towers like that too, but as I was getting killed so many times for being exposed, I’ve changed the layout so it could also give more protection to the builders.

Anyway, The Wall Tower is a Great Babel Tower, good job building it.

The green tower looked like a diving board from a certain angle. Besides that I really like the design because it protects the builders, which is something that we rarely see.

it looks awesome~ 8)

That’s a good defensive spot, I suppose it is just supported by the Wall Tower you have posted. It is a good strategy, thanks for sharing.
I will enumerate the towers in the first post, ok?

This explanation is japanese but i know u guys can translate it :wink:

Em…sorry for double post but I just made a model of my new fort design :smiley:

The red blocks are where the tower/stairs are

1 side is for free shooting(Harder But More View)
The other is for more emm protection and focus view(Easier But Less View)
Both sides are still pretty good :smiley:
