Contest Discussion at Blizzardmodding.info!!!

Hi fellow Blizzmodders :)

I think we have enough members to start a contest. But before start any contest, it would be appropriate to have an idea about what skills we have thus far.

I'll open a pool where you can indicate what are your specific skills in WC3. You will be able to select more than one option. The idea is that you use this topic to propose a theme for the contest.

Just to point out: we are only defining member skills in the pool, the theme of the contest can be based on specific skills or a combination of them (Example: Hero contest could imply modeling and skinning) Just propose and we'll hear your ideas :D

Any suggestions are welcome.

As far as I'm concern, I'm the only terrain artist here and I pretty much haven't open my editor this last 2 weeks or so. I don't have motivation atm and I'm always outside this days so no time to mod.

I think its best if it was a contest for generally everyone. We dont have much of certain types of talented people, so we should somehow make a universal one. I dont know what type of theme could we pick.

Also suggestion, maybe we should stray away from those generic contests for now. As I said, we dont have much of certain types of talented people.

Hmm, maybe something more general, plus that's too long.
Lets try maybe something more unorthodox, maybe something concept related.

I thought of launching Viralize 2. This time, add more rewards; such as prize for referrals, etc.

I can use a refferal mod to track this viralize process heheeee!!!

And that's remembering about reinstalling the awards mod...

EDIT: refferal system installed.

BUMP!!!

I had this idea for a contest:

MINI MAPPING CONTEST: From mobile to Warcraft III

>

Objective: Create a map game that resembles as much as possible an actual game from mobiles.

Conditions:
 - you must provide the link about the original game.
 - You may change the theme of the game to fit the WC3 style but you must be as close as possible to the game mechanics.
 - And normal and logical rules for a mapping contest.

Suggestions and opinions welcome as always...

Oh god this is damn fun. I'm thinking of a old rpg mobile game i played before. I'll link it to you guys when I found it.(Damn can't even remember the title.)

Nice idea boss.

EDIT:

Is collaboration allowed?I can pretty much do the terrain by myself but my average triggering skills will get me no where.

I think it's okay having some help. I think we could get original stuff from other ideas just in the part of adapting to WC3.

Now... some rules to brainstorm??

Well here is my suggested guidelines. Feel free to suggest more and point out things that should be remove from the guidelines.

  • Only copy the gameplay mechanics, characters, items and abilities of the game. Lore should be original to test contestants creativity of applying the said materials on their own world. But you can still make your characters, items, etc original as long its gameplay is replicating a game.
  • Ideas from multiple games are allowed.
  • Do not replicate games from PS 1/2/3, XboX and desktop. Games from mobile, nes, psp and such are allowed. (Dunno about you guys but I think games from nes and gameboy are also classic. We can remove the psp if you guys want.)
  • Receiving help from others are allowed/Collaboration are allowed.(Lets decide on this.)
  • We do not tolerate using ripoff materials.
  • Source materials should be linked on their final submission.
  • And don't forget to have fun!

Nice that we can use multiple idea, but remove the PS1/2/3 game from forbidden part is kinda a good thing i guess.... Also, does PS Count PS Vita? Also, does mobile count Apple Products [IPad/IPhone/IPod]?

Reminds me of THW  :D

Thats it I guess....

Yes!!! many mobile games are based on ideas from WC3 and now it's time to return the favor :)

Only mobile games, and with that I mean games to download to a cellphone/tablet, IPad/Phone/Pod are valid. I plan the second contest to take ideas from console games, if this contest is successful.

Actually mechanics requires the biggest imagination and focus of the group, never the lore. The lore is always the most flexible, since you can make Romeo & Juliet a space opera and Superman even set at medieval times with not that much of a struggle. I think that we can do a "Rehash A Game" contest, where we pick up old mechanics and add our spin to it.

Lore should give some bonus, but being mandatory... not necessarily. Mobile games, for being short and straight to the point don't tend to have a huge lore.

Let's try to only focus on mobile games right now. Later, in the next contest, we can use console games as inspiration.

I propose teams of 2 only.

TOTALLY AGREEE!!!! :D

Agreed.

The most important rule!!!

That's the core of the idea in this contest. That's the reason why I think we can really enjoy this contest.

Now we have to set the scores and the election process. I vote for a public poll only, but every voter must support its vote with an explanation why he chose any entry according to some aspects.

Aspects to check it out:
  • Mechanics: Does the map accomplish the original game mechanics? / Does the map gets the idea of the game mechanics in WC3 style?
  • Visuals: Does the game gets the idea of the original game in WC3? / How well the wc3 theme has been adapted to the original visuals?
  • How well is coded the map (no leaks, no freezes, etc)

I was saying that we shouldn't just make a contest based out of lore since that would be commonplace, but a contest on creating an original game from stratch, not replicating any other previous releases. That is a test of creativity.

In fact we'll measure the creativity in how you adapt the game mechanics into WC3 and how you take or override WC3 limitations at your advantage.

Making a twist in the original game and gain a possible new game concept would be the big price.

Yeah. Something like that!

Also, we need a name for that contest. Lets just try to stay away from those Mapping Contest #1 stuff.
