2015 Contest Discussion

by RaZoR LeAf » Sun Jan 11, 2015 9:29 pm

I figure it’s a bit soon to have a new contest yet, we’ve not long finished the voting for the Christmas one. But that doesn’t mean we can’t discuss some ideas for future contests. If we can get a bunch of ideas down, then we can get more of them arranged without having to have a discussion beforehand all the time, and it takes some of the pressure off me to come up with them.

Here are the previous contests. I’ve missed out those that came at the very start, as they were a bit overloaded or didn’t have much detail (like Heroes with just a description). They are in descending order.

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


Before
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


What's been popular recently was a theme to base the contest around, notably present in the Christmas Contest; four towers and a hero based on Christmas or winter themes, and the Four Elements; one tower for each of the four classic elements. At the beginning, contests were smaller, but had a lot more entries which made a better balance. Since contests now have an average of six entries, they have been bigger to make them appear to have more content. We have a lot more members now sharing their ideas, so we could go back and have some smaller contests to ease them into it, before we have a big one again.

But anyway, this thread is for people to discuss ideas for contests throughout the year. Either repeats of old contests, or some new ideas we haven't done before.

Suggestions
Hero origins (Fanfic)
Feature Addition
Gnome Shop
Upgrade Tree
Enemy Hybrid
Environment
Enemy Theme Pack
Hero Combination
Standalone Level

I think a Hero Origins contest would be cool. A sort of background story to the beginnings of a hero chosen randomly by whoever (possibly the devs). It would go well with the fact that we have KR: Origins showing us why Vez'nan is a villain. Maybe some lore for the other heroes would add a lot of depth to the game as well. :)

I second BBB's suggestion.

Yeah, a hero contest is a good choice, I have a great idea right now. Fun fun fun.

I definitely second BBB's idea. Maybe we could extend this by maybe providing stories for towers.

Right ok. But this is for discussing lots of ideas, not just agreeing on one. I. Don't want to have to post a thread like this everytime we want to hold a contest, so the moe ideas we get here, the more contests we can hold.

How about a Feature Addition contest? My thoughts being inspired, of course, by Kevin32's recent work. :D

This topic is to be revived every time one gets a new idea for a contest, right?

I want something other than the common tower contest we have been having. Something, more lore-y. Maybe a campaign, or as xstar said, a Feature Addition contest.

What about gnome shop items. Everyone has to design 3 unique gnome shop items. you should list the effects, the area of effect, possibly stats and the price in gems.

I think an upgrade tree contest would be cool too.

Guys this thread is not for discussing the upcoming Community Hero contest. I'm not saying this again, if you don't stop discussing it and get back on topic I'll have this thread removed.

100% agree.

I'll split the topic. Sorry about this Razor, it's my fault.

No it's not. It's everyone else's short attention span. It's like "hey so this thing is cool, and we should discuss how cool it is and then OMG SHINY LOOK AT THE THE SHINY LETS TALK ABOUT THE SHINY! SHINY SHINY! WHAT?"

I find tis rather offensive. I addressed Tats' post because it was extremely important that what he said be responded to, not because I can't remember the original focus of the thread.

Let's all cool down and not take anything personal.

Then, let's go back to topic.

New idea: Since heroes and lore are out of the question, how about we design a new environment? It could have its own set of enemies, location, positive or negative (or both) affects on the layout, scenery, and a master of the environment. Yay or nay?
