Can we please have a Contest or Community Poll for a new Vengeance hero?

We can do that. Which would you rather, a contest you make an entire entry yourself, or the poll to build it up gradually with other people? If it's the poll, I won’t be as heavily detailed as BBB was.

I'm totally down for a hero contest. Haven't quite been up to speed for the other contests, but hero entries are easy for me. I also haven't posted fanfic in a looong time, but Vengeance really has given me a ton of inspiration, so I should probably start on that stuff as well. :veznan:

Can we have an Endless/another mini-campaign contest?

Or, if possible, a Community Poll on another tower.

We can do one again eventually, but not right away. We did a Mini campaign previously, and the contest before that (albeit in August) was an Endless level. Ideally I'd like to lean away from repeating similar contests in a row or people will get bored.

As for the Community Poll. Ehh.. Big Bad Bug did both the Dragon's Nest poll and the Tower poll, and neither one got finished. I guess we could do another one, but they're very long-winded.

These are some of the most popular contests we've had and ways we could do them again without outright repeating them:

* Four Elements Tower design
-*- Instead of limiting you to picking from the four elements, a list is provided of lots of different themes. You have to pick a single theme and design your tower based around it So like a 'Water Archer' or 'Earth Mage' like before, but now you could have a 'Winter Barracks' a 'Space Archer' or a 'Candy Artillery'. Not to mention how more fluid Vengeance Towers are with their categorisation, you aren't limited to only making Archer/Barracks/Mage/Artillery.

* Lore
-*- This wouldn't need to change, the Lore contest had so many great entries, there's no limit to what the next one might bring.

* Combinations
-*- We've done enemy, hero and tower combinations. I think a repeat of these would be good fun, especially with adding Vengeance into the mix. The idea of crossing a good hero with an evil villain is filled with possibilities.

* Gnome Shop
-*- Vengeance expanded on the Shop, so there's more room to add new ideas and designs.

And these are some other ideas I've had:

* Hexafusion
-*- Based on an old meme and a sketch I did (and found whilst sorting out my computer). You take three heroes, merge them into three new pairs and then a single merge of all three. But rather than making the heroes themselves in this contest, you'd be writing lore for brand new characters. Could even allow images in this contest.

* Achievements
-*- Not much to say to explain this one, but it's a contest we have never done before.

* Spin Off
-*- Create a Kingdom Rush spin off game. Not on the scale of many of our fan created games, but an idea for a KR themed game of a different style. An idle tapper or a sim-city style builder?

* Film Pitch
-*- Pitch a film based on KR, with the plot and a cast of actors/voice actors.

* Soundtrack
-*- Maybe in turn with the film pitch, but an album of songs inspired by/soundtrack for the KR series. You could link to youtube or other hosting sites where the songs can be played and heard so people can judge your audio choices and see how well they match the theme.

* Iron Marines Crossover
-*- IM heroes in KR? KR heroes in IM?

Combinations and the Iron Marines crossover contest sound like fun.

Another one I'd like to see again is the Level 5 tower contest. It's been held twice before, and the entries have always been great. I didn't get to participate last time due to a power shortage if I remember correctly.

Tower design and gnome shop sound great, and as Ninja said, we could also have a crossover. Also, can we not have a list in 4 elements tower design, and instead be able to take up whatever element we desire?

Well yes but saying "pick a theme" isn’t as challenging as "you have a limited amount of themes". Otherwise you could make any kind of tower and paste a theme over it, rather than having to think about it. That was what made the elements one so good, you had to put extra thought into making a tower for each element, rather than just picking fire for all of them. Besides, it wouldn’t be a small list, and there would be a lot of themes on it. I thought it would be more fun than just "make a tower" which we all do regularly anyway.

Ok then, let's have a tower design contest (or any other contest, I just want to have my Kingdom Rush gears turning).

Something to do with enemies or towers would be most fun for me. :)

I'd like to support an L5 tower contest for KRV. I did some brainstorming a few weeks ago with Harkmen on ideas for the Elite Harassers, and we each had interesting yet varied concepts.

Also I'm a total sucker for tower contests.

At any rate, I'd be sure to spread the word no matter the contest.
KRA is now complete.

Let's have a contest on anything - I have got a full-blown Vengeance mini-campaign idea (including the hero, tower, mechanics etc. etc.).

Feel free to post it as a normal thread. I'll happily read and review it (BTW I'll review your other stuff soon; I'm just busy with IRL stuff). :)

I want to do a new tower, but a level 5 tower would also be good.

Kids these days. So impatient.

This current contest will be a small one to tide you over until Aeris and I work out the details on a collaboration between the forums and Discord. Then we can do a bigger contest that will have a lot more entrants.
