Protecting Imagination from the mischievous Maelstrom in LEGO® Universe certainly is no easy feat! The LEGO Universe team is looking for the greatest in-game champions - asking players flex their creative muscle, strength and speed to find out which players are truly the most powerful!

Who will come out ahead? The master builders of the Assembly? The wild adventurers of the Venture League? Perhaps the mighty Sentinels, or the mysterious Paradox?

Beginning October 13th, eight full weeks of events will kick off in the first-ever Nexus Force Championships. Throughout the LEGO Universe Championships, players will earn points for winning various in-game events and contests.

The player with the most points at the end will be crowned the Nexus Force Champion! The Grand Champion will win fame, glory, over $5,000 in LEGO toy sets, a new laptop computer and more.
