Three Is Company - Results and Postmortem
« on: January 19, 2015, 10:05:53 pm »

Hi. Here's the winning maps:

First Place CTF ctf_eiger by kildau


First Place KotH koth_cortraduct by Heenok


First Place KotH dkoth_runment_a1_fix2 by Asia

The following people are going to get the following prizes:
kildau - CTF mapping badge, special intel trail sprites, minor consulation badge
heenok - CTF mapping badge, KotH mapping badge, Crown of the Hill
poop - KotH mapping badge, "Other" mapping badge
derp - major consulation badge
Asia - "Other" mapping badge, Capture Capelet

You will be PMed once the prizes are added to the game. Keep your forum accounts valid, or else your prizes will be reallocated. Please PM me if there was a mistake in allocating prizes, or if an entrant has deleted their account.

Here are the issues I ran into running this contest, and what I'm going to do moving forward.


The rules sucked. They were obscure and wishwashy. This was part of the design, since I wanted to figure out how to run such a contest. Moving forward, the rules are going to be 100% explicit from the get-go, in the introduction post to the contest and be thought through better.


The voting system didn't work, and no matter how I do it, using SMF's polling system for this is broken, regardless of how convenient it is. Future contests will have a PM format with one voting stage, but it's going to be much simpler and more useful than the haxxy system.

You'll be required to rank each map in a given category from first to last place, with a separate ranking list for each category. You are encouraged to provide feedback for the map author, which will be forwarded to them if it's not destructive or excessively unfriendly.

Users will require five posts anywhere on the forum to qualify for voting, but when and where those posts are made doesn't matter. They can even be useless posts. This is solely to discourage the usage of alt accounts for voting and make it easier to figure out which ones are alts.


You will only be allowed one entry total, and you'll be disqualified from other categories if you do win in one of them. The limit on the number of entries is to encourage people to work as hard as possible on a single map, and simplify judging. Normally, this would be hard to deal with, and would cause precedence problems; however, the forced tiered voting system prevents such problems.

Entries will be required to have more than basic art. My standards aren't very high, but since this will be judged subjectively, give your best effort. Cortraduct is barely on the edge of having enough art, for example.

You basically came in third in multiple categories but didn't win anything. Think of it like a mega third place.

The haxxys are still being implemented. I'm going to wait until Medo has time to start working on those again, because otherwise I'm going to cause a lot of trouble for him.

Hello. It's been a while, sorry about that. I'm going to make the reward sprites for this now. I'm sure the people that offered to help have forgotten by now since development has been dead for a while.

Making the badges, but I have no idea what kind of design to put on the "other" mapping badge.

some kind of treasure map?
 
also, as a *badge enthusiast* i would like to point out that if you won the first vote in all categories like kildo and I did, but lose the second vote we get more badges by default because we are finalists of more categories. Give me more badges.

And i must admit that my map is shit, even though it's up to the default rotation quality, would it be possible to use any other map i made?

Good idea. Not sure about how to make the sprite fit but I'll probably figure something out.

>Give me more badges.

I might just make a "heenok" badge since you kind of deserve a badge of honor generally speaking.

>would it be possible to use any other map i made?

Yes, as long as I approve of it.

Okay, I'm waiting on medo to finish up some hat rigging code he started a year ago so that I can make the cape and crown without wanting to kill gg2.

... Famous last words.

I can't make capes, sorry, the system isn't there for them. I'm making hats instead.
