2017 Contest Discussion

Postby RaZoR LeAf » Thu Jan 05, 2017 8:47 pm

As it has been for the past two years, it's a new contest discussion thread for the new year. We really didn't have very many contests last year due to my unexpected illnesses, so I'd like to make up gif that with more smaller contests that focus on things we've not done before. Obviously we'll still have some big ones doing things that have always been popular. Mini Campaigns and Tower/Hero packs. With Iron Marines looming Kingdom Rush will likely take a bit of a back seat, but it's also likely we'll get more new members that may be interested in joining in.


So to surmise, this thread is here 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:

I vote more L5 towers, but that might just be my cup of tea.

Hey, how about a contest about creating an Endless Stage? The last one that I read about was pre-2015 (as stated in the OP), and it seems like a pretty fun idea.

Maybe best made map by looks and feel. (Aeris not allowed because you are to good)

Like you draw a map, without adding enemies, just a map drawing.

Or maybe whoever helps me best with this project ;) (please help, suggest, review and vote ideas so I don't have to advertise so hard)

Haha.
My maps are petty compared to RaZoRs.
(Though, I do want to work on improving them.)

L5T has been done twice in the past, so you can check out the threads for them to see what will be expected. It's one of the first contests I ever entered and is a really clever idea.

It just occurred to me. Magicmetal, Aeris, a few otherrs and I are working on a project to make Kingdom Rush cards on a site called "Dulst".

Maybe we could have a competition for the best card for KRF because we are mostly done with KR.

I'd like it to remain in general KR fanfiction, to not exclude the people (like me) who don't care about card games.

These are contests for Kingdom Rush, not for other things that are KR themed. If everyone were a fan of what you were doing, then maybe, but as it is, you'd have to go into the minute detail of explaining everything so that people could enter and judge, otherwise it wouldn't be fair to limit it only to people with an interest in your project, whereas everyone likes Kingdom Rush.

I agree

This forum is about (mostly)Kingdom Rush and its fanfics, after all, not about the Kingdom Rush fan-made games and such...

I don't mean to be a jerk or seem "butt hurt" as Juice Box might put it, but everything in these contest are fan made. Sure, not everyone likes cards, but not every like making origin stories, or making new tower ideas.

While I respect your decision, please keep in mind cards and L5 towers are both Kingdom Rush at the heart.

Kay lemme make 2 points.

-It's a forum explicitly intended for fan ideas for a tower defense game, why would someone even be here in the first place if they didn't want to create/post something related to the game?
-That's objectively wrong, L5 towers are a malleable subject that everyone who's played the games can work with if they're so inclined, cards are not a definitive shared interest of everyone here.

They are fan made aspects of the Kingdom Rush game. They could be part of the game. Everybody understands how the game works from playing it. Not everybody understands your card game (nor our Pokemon project), because unlike KR not everyone will have played it or have an interest in it. I'm not arguing that it's not KR themed, only that as it is not primarily KR the requirements of full understanding of the subject would be needed by every reason who could take part otherwise it is not a fair contest. You want your card game to be the best it can be? How would you like it if the winning card didn't make sense, or already existed because the entrants didn't understand what they were doing?

I'm not stopping you making your own contest, but it would be better kept in the Games forum where your initial thread is.

Finally. The discussion thread being used for discussion. On,y taken two years.
