SSBB Design Contest 1: Mario Stages (Congratulations to Axtlar!)
SSBB Design Contest 2: Zelda Stages (Congratulations to DeathChron!)
SSBB Design Contest 3: Mini-Stages
All right everyone.. I've been a member here for a little while now, and I've seen a number of Smash Brawl threads that don't really go anywhere, and it gets pretty boring reading page after page of which characters we want added to the game, the number of stages we want to see in the finished product, or whether or not the game is going to go online. Now I've done a search and was surprised to find that with the number of threads started about this game, no one has thought to put together a design contest. It's easy enough to name off characters we'd like to see in the game, but how about a little bit of creativity??
So in order to get this message board moving along, I will be investing some of my own cash and time to putting together a contest involving our big anticipated game of 2007.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl Design Contest
Every few weeks or so (depending on how popular this is), I will come up with a design contest for anyone who wishes to participate. You will come up with a single idea that has never been used in the previous versions of Smash or has not been announced for the current game. You will convert your ideas to a sketch or drawing that will be submitted here.
After the deadline, users will vote on their 5 favorite designs in no particular order, and the top 10 designs that get the most votes after 3 days will go through another round of voting. This time users will identify their top 3 designs with different point values assigned to each place. The winners will be announced after another set deadline.
The top 5 finishers will receive points (1 - 5) and logged here. Points will be tallied up from each competition.
The user with the most points by the release of SSBB will get a FREE copy of the game*, courtesy of me (and any moderators who wish to chip in). If possible, I may award a prize for second place.. but that depends on my finances. Second prize will be announced by the end of the first competition.
The first competition will be announced tomorrow morning (United States Eastern Time), depending on the amount of interest I get. So let me know!
*It has come to my attention that many of you live overseas from the United States, and the prize system may not work. The best way I can resolve this currently is if the winner lives in the US, then I can certainly have it shipped. Otherwise, I'll be glad to have it mailed from the users nearest online merchant. Winner will be announced before game is released, so I will try to get it out to you as close to the release date as possible.
** Final Edit (hopefully): Plan for the final contest to end 1 month before the game's release date. The winner will be announced and I will preorder the game from the member's online merchant of choice, and it will be shipped when the game it released. Member will receive the receipt via email. Also, as the contests get underway, prizes will be offered for individual contests.
NOTICE (8/10/2007): The SSBB Design Contest will be indefinitely suspended due to lack of participation. I apologize to those of you who are still actively participating, but I simply do not have the time nor the willingness to continue a contest that only gets less than 5 entries per contest. I believed this had a lot of potential and it disappoints me to see such a low level of interest. Also, with the lack of contests put out by the moderators, I thought that maybe they would take up a little interest in this one..
