    • There's actually a page limit this time! You have to tell your story each round in only 1-3 pages! That's right there's a 3 PAGE MAXIMUM!
    So when you're uploading, you should only upload up to page 3. Three pages only. (There's a comic lower in the post explaining exactly what a page means with your 3 page limit.)
       

    Yeah it's 1-3 pages [/list]

    Sorry, I meant it more like "don't try to upload more than 3".

    Red, causing trouble again :\

    Random question for participants: due to a clerical error (AKA Bobo), Mortido got passed by when setting up all the first round battles even though he should have been included. Since it would have been unfair to change the existing matches after they went up (which was before my mistake was pointed out), we've kept Mortido out of the running. However, I would like to propose that, in the case of a DOUBLE DEFAULT (both artists in a single match fail to turn in a comic at all), Mortido would take the place of the winner of that match and enter the tournament in place of the two defaulting artists.

    That may put Choleric in at a later round than everyone else started at, which is totally unfair, but I'm just trying to see if I can repair the damage I caused and also prevent the headache of figuring out what to do if there's a double default.

    Please voice your opinions here, in the chat, or anywhere where I will see it. If we get even just a few dissenters, we'll keep things the way they are, but if you're all on board with allowing our good friend Choleric to enter the tournament he was born to be in basically, I think this could be a good compromise.

    Me causing trouble? Look at you, Bobo, leaving out poor Mortido. I literally can't believe you.

    Although I'd love to see him battle in this, if he enters the tournament late without really earning a spot by murdering people, wouldn't that be unfair? I guess the only way that would be ok is if he enters the tournament if there is a double default ROUND 1 and he draws some sort of 3 page comic as well? Maybe the comic could be about an awful clerical error. Hmm. I just don't want to see anyone enter late in a tournament without drawing comics.

    isn't the fact that he got chosen to be in, but not actually put in unfair?



    I'm fine with it, even if he comes in during the semi-finals.

    If he is shoved in, he should be shoved in asap. It would be lame for everyone, including Eric who I'm sure wants to start drawing in this asap and not potentially later, so how about next round he takes the slot if there is a double default, OR if that doesn't happen then we ask for volunteers to do a 3 way with him for round 2. So he can still get in early and start killing people.
    That way Eric can still try to murder his way to the top, which I'm sure is what he would prefer :) I've heard he likes killing fast.

    I just want to mention that i would prefer a random selection each round. This way One can plan ahead wich takes away some of the lightspeed spirit.
    Just my bit.

    Also i would like to have eric in. I wouldnt mind having him pushed in via double default handling.

    This was one of the things we discussed for a good while. There has been a high demand to use brackets for a long time now, BECAUSE it allowed the building of hype and artists a chance to plan their narrative with future hypothetical matches, which benefits everyone as the end result should mean better crafted comics. Depending on how this tournament works with brackets, we may introduce it back into other future tournaments as well, but if a majority ever wants to return to random-each-round that is always an option.

    +1 for random matchups please. I doubt I'll make it to round 5 (not with that attitude, i won't) so I'm disappointed I have close to 0% chance of fighting some folks in the upper bracket, rather than having a greater than 0% chance.

    I would volunteer to invite him into my murder so fast that I'm already doing it.

    If 2 people who survive want to add Choleric to their fight for a 3 way next round, then we can do that I bet. We can just switch their opponents.

    (Also, I like the bracket)

    If a double default happens in round 1, plop him right in. If not, we've already got puzzlething and Le Fred saying they would volunteer to do a 3 way. That would be a pretty hot 3 way.
    Sound agreeable?

    And I know some people like the bracket and some people don't. Let's try it out, and if it's no good then we will know for the future. People seem to be pretty split on the topic, so we will see how it turns out this time!

    Already said my piece in the chat but I hate the idea of putting the bracket out publicly, especially in a tourney like this. I know for a fact its gonna be taken advantage of and I don't like that one bit.

    I'm also personally against the bracket in a setting like speed death anything, but light speed, where it's 3 or less pages in 4 days, it feels like cheating ahaha.  Planning for one of two opponents is pretty easy, I can understand where it's come from, but I feel like it somehow kills the spirit of this specific event. I mean, in the 3 days it takes to vote, I could have thumbs and fully sketched pages for both possible opponents, and I'm nowhere near the fastest.

    Other tournaments? I take less issue, but I totally looked at those brackets and went "man, there are so many people I won't ever get a chance to battle in this" and it tastes like defeat ):

    P.S., I am down for a 3-way battle if I make it there

    Ok I understand people being upset but lets be real, its a 40+ tourney,
    if the mods need a bracket system, so be it.
    I dont feel like anyone should be upset over it being in public.

    Infact Public is nothing new. It's in actual sports and such.
    Being able to prep ahead of time is something that teams do in world cups and playoff.
    It's even in fighting game tourneys.
    It's your responsibility to prepare yourself for the next battle.
     And you know what? Everyone in this tourney has this opportunity.
    If anything the only thing that would suck is that there's a chance I wont get to fight a certain opponent.
    Even without brackets there are a ton of people in this site that preplan and create ideas during the voting period.
    I mean I don't see how it kills the spirit, quite the contrary,
    I'd be hype to figure out how I would tackle the next possible opponent.

    I don't like it being public it may work in sport but defeats the purpose (I believe) of this specific tournament because it's the whole thing of "you got 3 days...GO"

    But I also don't mind how it is decided how we go about it if we keep it or not, I'm not against it all together just public - I'd respect whatever decision the powers that be decide.

    Hello folks this maybe the first massive tournament you've experienced and it's possible that in three days you won't be able to read everything and that's /fine/ ! However it's important to read and vote on as many of these fights as you can. 24 fights means 48 or more votes and most tourney battles take 3-5 days to peak to the 50s. Despite being only 3 pages a lot of these comics had a lot of work done to them in such a short amount of time !

     So if you find a battle you're very sure about, vote on it as soon as you can ! We're truly fortunate to see a first round were virtually no one defaulted [Please get better Alberto !], and a Strong Start to a new year where short, concise battles are making a comeback !

    Since there was no double default, we can do the 3-way so that Mortido can get in this.

    So far, volunteers have been:
    Puzzlething, Monday, Le Fred, Minteh.

    To be fair, we could randomly choose the volunteers and switch the brackets up to include the 3-way, since there are 4 of you stepping up now.


    As far as the brackets go, I've been reading the comments and chat and listening to the feedback. I know a lot of you like it and a lot of you don't. We're trying out something new, and really that's the only way to see if something will work out or not. Some of you have some good points, so now I am on the fence. I'll ultimately want what you guys want though. So, we will see how it goes :>
