2016 Contest Discussion

I'm stating a new contest discussion thread for the year. We didn't have very many contests last year, and I think a new one is long overdue. I think perhaps the last few contests were a little over complicated, taking on too specific requirements and limiting the interests of people. So this thread is back up to get in some basic ideas, including all of the contests posted previously (with results where created)

Here are the previous contests in descending order:

2015
Hero Origin Story / (Results?)
Standalone Level / Voting
Hero & Tower Amalgam / Voting
Gnome Shop / Voting
Horrorween / Voting
Video Game Tower / Voting

Pre-2015
Christmas (Towers and Hero)
Endless Challenge
Four Elements (Towers)
Level 5 Tower
Fanfic
Campaign Contest
Hero Nemesis
Level 5 Tower
Enemies
Positive Level Addition
Negative Level Addition
Spell


Below are all the suggestions from the 2015 thread that were not used.

Suggestions

Feature Addition
Upgrade Tree
Enemy Combination
Environment
Enemy Theme Pack
Thematic
Tower Theme Pack
Mini-Campaign based on VG Franchise
Hero from existing character
Funny Mini-Campaign
5th Basic Tower
Movie Pitch

Please use this thread as a suggestions and ideas discussion, not as one person posts an idea and everyone just agrees over 10 posts with no other input.

My voting thread, BTW: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=25632

I would vote for an Enemy Hybrid contest.

We could also do some kind of thematic contest, like the Christmas/Horroween/Video Game contests.

Assuming enemy theme pack would be enemies along a theme (Halloween - Shadowmoon etc) then that gets my vote.

Bump.

We should discuss this; it is important after all. (At least I think so)

I could start an Enemy Hybrid contest, if everyone else is up for it.

This is exactly what I said not to use this thread for.

What about a tower hybrid contest. I don't know if that has been done already but I think it would be a good idea to mix towers and make 2-3 abilities damage range all of that stuff and all of it related to the overall theme of the tower.

How about a freestyle? Like, anything you want, you can do, within certain constraints like a word count.

Personally that would be a little too vague and hard to judge who to vote for.

How about: "replace something from a KR game", meaning a tower, hero, level or whatever will be replaced by whatever you want. It's a little less open but not overly constricted

Oh, cool! There are little trophy things for contest winners. Didn't notice those before.

How about a mini campaign based on a game besides kingdom rush?

Maybe we can do a drawing contest. You should make a hero (or tower if you prefer something static), and then make a drawing of it, basically. It could be a small contest in between larger contests or something.

Not everyone can draw well, including myself, but a drawing contest is definitely something different. And if your drawing skills are really, really bad, you'll always have the hero/tower concept to make a chance at winning.

There's one problem I see with that. That being that it would be obvious who drew what, just based on art styles and drawing programs.

But everyone knows, or at least has a reference for, RaZoR's and mine, and possibly even BBB, if some will be drawn by hand.
