Assault the Base Contest [Updated]



Assault the Base Contest



This is an Assault contest in case you were wondering. In another attempt to make a contest that works, I decided to do what I did with my first contest and use a monetary prize. But the prize will be different from what any other JJ2 contest has done before.


Prize: Starting from zero, the prize amount will be raised by $20 (USD) for every entry. So if 20 entries are submitted, the prize will be $400. The prize money will most likely be sent via PayPal or Bitcoin.
Current Prize: $80 (4 submissions)


Deadline: Either one week after 10 entries have been submitted, or immediately after 30 entries have been submitted, whichever comes first, however long it takes.


Rules:

Submissions
  • You cannot submit anything you have uploaded to J2O prior to the start of this contest. However, you are allowed to upload it to J2O once your submission has been accepted.
  • You can submit as many levels as you want, but only one will count as your official entry. In other words, you wouldn't be able to single-handedly submit enough entries to end the contest early with the maximum prize money.
  • Your level may be either 1.23 or TSF. Scripted/Plus-only levels are also allowed.
  • You may work with one other person if you want, but naturally you would have to split the prize money.
  • You may use email (blurredd(at)gmail.com) or this thread to send your submission. I'll send a short reply when I have received your entry via email.

Level Design
  • You may choose to make either a Double Assault level or a One-Sided Assault level.
  • You must use at least 5 crates or 5 objectives. An example of an objective would be destroying a wall of destruct scenery to get to the next area. If you choose to use objectives, I recommend documenting each objective somewhere (it would make my job easier).
  • Your entry must at the very least look like some effort was put into it. I'll accept any entry as long as it doesn't look like it took less than 5 minutes to make. See Syntax's Assault3 level for an example.


Keep in mind that the easier the level is to learn, the more likely people will want to play in it, and the better chance the level will have of winning. If you aren't sure about something, ask first. As of now I will be the only judge, but I promise to be as fair as possible. And if you make an Assault level for Black Ninja's Foo Products Assault Level Competition, you may submit it to this contest as well (assuming Black Ninja doesn't mind and all of the requirements for my contest are met).

EDIT:
  • TSF levels are now allowed.
  • Scripted/Plus-only levels are now allowed.
  • I updated how I can be contacted, which is now either by my Gmail address or this thread. IRC is no longer a viable method to contact me (since nearly 10 years).
  • I removed the request to make two versions of One-Sided Assault levels; JJ2+ can cover swapping teams for all players.
  • The prize amount increment per entry has been increased from $3 to $20 (USD).
  • The contest now ends when there is either 30 entries or one week after 10 entries, whichever comes first.
  • The prize money will now most likely be sent via PayPal or Bitcoin instead of money order. Because it's 2016.
  • You can submit as many levels as you want, but only one will count as your official entry. In other words, you wouldn't be able to single-handedly submit enough entries to end the contest early with the maximum prize money.

Interesting indeed. However, I'm not sure if I can enter. During the contest time I have a 3 week vacation inbetween, one I'm intending to spend on CoH allllll the time (considering that I can't play it at university), after which I have my end of semester exams at university which will keep me busy all the way until the 12th January. I do have two weeks inbetween now and my vacation, but there is a tileset that I want to finish else it will just get delayed indefinitley.

It does sound really fun though, if I have enough time inbetween I will definitley give this a try, but that's quite unlikely.

You also got yourself a sticky

Not many ppl seem interested in this contest.
I would also like to know if you're allowed to submit more than one lvl, Blur. There is nothing about submitting more than one lvl in the Submissions section.

Seems logically to me that you can only submit one level.

Blur hasn't mentioned it though. Some contests do run on a more-than-one entry basis.

Don't let the lack of posts fool you, some of us are indeed busy creating assault levels. Just wait a couple more weeks.

It's not Blur's fault. Blame the American downhill economy. Well, it's not really going downhill at all, but the dollar is certainly not as strong as it used to be. Cell still hasn't replied, so my assault lvl is on hold.

I won't be in
1. I can't play assault
2. I can't make good levels
3. Too lazy
4. Satan (XLM), Chip (XLM) and Stripe (ELM) make awesome levels.

I changed the rules a bit. Now you are only required to make a single One-Sided Assault level for an entry and the standards for how good your Assault level must be went down a bit. The deadline is 15 days from now, so don't forget to send in your submission.

I was pretty much expecting a turnout as so. If you need more time, say so here and I might consider changing the deadline. Otherwise Acid (the only official entry) wins by default.

I sort of hope not, because it would be really awkward for me to receive $6 for that sux level.

The deadline's been extended. It ends a week after 5 entries have been submitted, and so far I have 2. If I haven't replied to your submission, then that means I haven't received it yet.

When school started, I had to change my priorities. Sry for leaving you high and dry, Cell. No assault lvl from me. I'm pulling out (with my face-saving kit) of the competition, Blur.

Anyways, it sounds good but I don't think you are allowed to ask money for a Jazz2 Event, and if this answer is stupid and makes no sense, plz do not reply, thank you!

He didn't ask for money, he said that he will give money out; nothing's wrong with both.

I'm still undecided between letting this contest go on indefinitely or just cancelling it outright so I can get out of giving away the prize money.

There is a tiny, tiny, tiny chance I'll submit something. But people will be more likely to submit levels as the prize goes up, so you might end up giving something like $600 to the winner. So you probably should cancel it.
