Shab hasn't spoken to me since day 1 this round.

I wonder if we can get lots of points for Epic fail? Or epic slowdown? or an epic amount of ripped stuff.

My games's kinda short, but it feels a bit like a faster cave story, which is an epic game.

I'm pretty scared Bibin. Though the fact that you didn't think of asking to cooperate with me before starting, and you saying it's a good game, makes me wanne try harder to beat you. So beware!! epic

I've been gone for a few days, but I just wanted to say that you have been a very good judge imo. I've read all gradings and I believe you have been both professional and fair.

And yes! This round is evil! Epic Evil! It's EVIC!

Is it just me, or does anyone else think that everyone is just going to duel? You could probably get an easy win
if you teamed up with your partner.. since you are in all likelihood going to stand unopposed, or only against
one other team or so. Also, instead of assigning the free win to a random contestant, why not give it to the person
who made the game with the highest score from the week before? If two people made the best game, then you could just
randomly pick one of them. That will help prevent the better contestants eliminating each other early, and keeps the
competition strong. It's up to you of course.

I did think of doing it that way. The thing is, I'm trying to keep things completely randomized so as to keep things fair. If the higher skilled person is skilled enough to get a win, then they're probably skilled enough to get a win again in the next round. I think I favor the top places enough 1st-3rd place prizes. You're free to convince me otherwise though.

Well of course I don't really mind if you leave things the way they are. I might get a free win after all. However, the principle I was suggesting is similar to that of seeding players in knockout tournaments- you naturally put the best two players at opposite sides of the draw, so that they don't have to vs. each other straight up. Say for example you have four entrants, A and B are super pro, and C and D are complete noobs. If A was (stupidly) pitted against B first round, and C against D, then say B gets eliminated, but C gets through. Then C loses to A in the final. That way C came 2nd, stealing the glory from B, who is actually far more skilled.

That is just the principle of course, it's difficult to know who is best in this competition, especially when people submit "default win" games (intentionally weak entries). If you did a system where good players tend to be matched against weaker players, there would be good incentive to make a decent game every round. Since this is a little tricky to implement, it would be easy to at least give the free win to the best player. Since we've already completed a few rounds its a little late for a rule change, but of course it is in your power to do as you choose.

This is a great competition by the way I like the way it is inspiring me to actually finish games. I usually just have half finished crap scattered everywhere.

The way the competition now safeguards against good players knocking each other out is that you have to lose twice. I pit players with similar loss-win records with each other, so if you lose twice, you not only lost to a skilled klikker, but to someone who's ALSO lost at least once. The weak entries weed themselves out in a couple of rounds, and if they keep winning rounds, they will eventually end up in the upper brackets and be forced to enter decent entries or else they will lose.

So how's the EPIC GAMES coming along?
I've spent too much time on the main character, it has quite a few animations, but I think it will pay off!

Pretty good, I guess... Hopefully by the end of today I'll have the engine for pretty everything sorted out. But I have 6 groups, I wonder if I'm over doing it.......

Making an epic game in 2 weeks is hard, because part of what makes it feel epic is if you get the idea alot of work went into it. It has to feel like you're actually entering another world when you play. How mr God pulled it off in 7 days is a mystery to me



Do you think Peblo would notice if I just send him the link to Eternal Daughter??
