The Challenges of The Spritas Empty The Challenges of The Spritas

Hello fine fellows of the great world of Spritas. Allow me to enlighten your silly noggins on the concept of challenges. This thread also explains universal rules of all challenges so prepare to marginally enhance your reading ability.

In the Battles forum, users are free to develop their own competitions between animators which includes writing their own rules for the challenges. We cherish this feature, but we also have a "serious" side to it.

Here in Challenges, we the experts will design stimulating and mind wrenching trials for others to solve. These tasks will include unusual animation requirements with tough conditions that the animator must use brains and intuition to work with. This is great not only for fun competition, but its a very powerful learning mechanism for artists and animators. Really, it is, its the best method of practice ever.

With every Challenge, we invite everyone with ambition and interest to compete against others in creating the best possible animation under unique conditions.
We the experts (mostly me lol) will judge every submission for a challenge and determine which one is the best, the one that not only shows the best demonstration of the challenge, but does so with the greatest deal of creativity.
And, maybe sometimes, we will have... Prizes?   : O

If you know of Fluidanims, you may notice this concept is very similar to BSE rounds. And, they kind of are. But our conditions may be a bit more... INSANE. Ha.


So if you have a good idea of what's going on now, read these global rules so you can participate!

-All Challenges will be for sprite movies only, unless specified. This site is dedicated to sprite animation after all.

-Everyone is welcome to compete, even if you suck or your animation sucks or whatever. If it does suck, it will probably lose, but we certainly won't disallow it before the challenge ends. In fact we encourage you to compete anyway because you will get better by trying.

-Challenges can only be started by authorized personnel only! This includes judges and users with permission. Challenges are meant to be carefully designed by us special people. If you have an idea for a Challenge, feel free to contact us.

-There is no voting process to determine a winner, given the instability of selecting the best submission (voting for inaccurate/unfair reasons, etc). Challenges are judged unbiased by the experts like me k.

-If judges happen to participate in a Challenge, their submissions will not be included in the competing process and thus will not be judged themselves. Those submissions will only be for entertainment or example.

-Under no circumstances should you use stolen content. If it happens to be common sounds or something, we won't really care. But, if you are using someone else's custom/edited content, things that are not generic and have an artist's signature to them, your submission will be disqualified, no exceptions.

-Always carefully read the individual rules of a Challenge. Duh.

Did you read them? I SURE HOPE SO. Enjoy the massacre that is Challenges, so that we may put others down for sucking and win valuable prizes.

I mean learning.

Because I am literate and thorough.

Would anyone like to discuss the actual topic now.

Say i have a question. Do we have the right to come up with a challenge on our own or do you guys do it only?... err
Just kidding read the whole thing. Everything sounds fine by me. And ya i have an idea as well. Its gonna sound maybe lame but
How about a teamwork challenge? Lets say me, Ping and T2N team up against PacBoy, Leo and Crashbox111 about some challenge that you guys will come up with. (lulz)

Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst.

It would be. Though i meant more like 1 animation (the challenge would be 1 thing after all) made by 3 ppl or more. And another one by another team. And one of them does the animating, one of them spruces up to their max with their best stuff and one of them the beta tester OR something else. But ya, collab vs collab. Ya thats good too i was JUST gonna suggest that.

That is what I was saying.

Let's say the teams were...

Ping, NS and Leo vs. KA, SXR and MJ. (Obviously for a challenge there would be more teams and perhaps in a tournament format if there are a lot of teams in the race.)

Each team would have to pick their idea and then submit it in.

Ping, NS and Leo - Goku vs. Vegeta
KA, SXR and MJ - Sonic vs. Shadow

From here, one member of the three for the team would start the animation, after that, they would pass it on to another animator. I think the best way this could work for the most effective amount of progress is if one person starts off, they pass it to both members at the end of the day. From here, you will need to discuss on who will animate the following day this way there aren't three different versions. (However, this could work, but it would require a lot of time and disappointment and perhaps even time wasted.) Let's say Ping starts on 11/11/2011. He finishes whenever and decides to send it in when he is done. He would send it into both his members, SXR and MJ. From here, SXR or MJ will say that they are available and will have time to animate for however long that they can. They will animate however much they want to and then save it and send it back in at the end of their work. This would continue on until the three decide they are done. This would also allow for everyone to have an update version of the .fla at all times. Also, if one person finds that there are errors or things that could be done better, then they could fix that. I feel like that would be the most effective way of achieving a solid animation.

I think if this were to work, it would be so awesome. Team battles would be awesome. It would be like guilds almost or something. Just a thought I suppose. ^^
