The second AVS tournament

After a great and succesfull tournament we decided to do another one .

It'll be based on the same idea as the last one. For the people who didn't join then: You start with a given number of players, and every round a few will have to go out (knockout system). Presets will be rated on how they look, how original they are, and how much they have to do with the name (each round you are given a name, an example from last round: glow in the dark). This will not be a race for who uses his best technical skills, which wouldn't be fair for the less technical AVS'ers.

This means everyone can join, the higher leveled ones, but also the n00bies and newbies.

For as far I know: Raz will join, and so will Siddhartha_one. Ishan_rocky volunteered to be judge again. I agree on that if the others do as well, because he did a great job last round.

So who's in? Everyone can join, it's just for fun, you don't have to be a math wizard!

As for the start date, this is still unknown. It depends on how many will join, and when people say they can start making their presets.

So let's go for it again , it'll be great,

Deamon

yes, me too. Ok, good to hear we have 2 judges already . That is, if "the others" agree. Now let's see who are going to be the others. Come on people, sign up!

Raz is on vacation for about a week, and will most likely join when he get's back. Haven't heard anything from the rest of the last round. I hope they all join again. And I hope a lot of different people will join, not only the diehard regulars .

Glad to have you in as well, Jheriko

great! Nice to see so many people joining already in this short time. Not to worry about starting dates people, we'll start discussing that in a week or so, when most people are back from their vacation.

1. Deamon
2. Jheriko
3. Horse-Fly
4. Zevensoft
5. Akuso
6. Siddhartha_one
7. S-uper_T-oast
8. Geozop
9. Nic01
10. Atero (good to see you haven't fully left yet )

Judges:

1. Ishan_Rocky
2. Anubis2003

Unconfirmed joins and vacation people who might want to join:

1. Raz
2. Killahbite
3. Skupers
4. Tuggummi

Everything going nice and easy. Things seem to get along just fine. I love it . Let's hope more people will sign up, and that the unsure ones all join as well.

Lalllaaalllaa, I enjoy this

sure does, but the more, the better . Keeps it more exciting. Oh, and judges, start simple eh don't make up extremely hard things to do in the beginning. Not very polite for the newer people around here who might join. Unless you want to differ the man from the boys.... *evil grin*

Ok we'll wait for Tuggummi before discussing starting times at least. I can't inform people at DevArt, I'm not a member over there. Perhaps somebody else can do so? Tournament will be on the winamp forums still, I hope they don't bother. Though the idea is good, it might attract quite some other players if they like the idea.


[edit]

People from last round who haven't posted yet:

m^2k
Raz
Skupers
Shreyas
Magic.X
Runar
Mquadrat

You guys join as well again?

It looks like a pretty formidable group of AVS artists will be competing, this should be a good contest - can't wait for it to begin. (So I can kick all of your arses )

I'll join because I've never been in a tournament before, I know I'll most likely lose, but I just wanna see what it's like and see what I could create

I did the same last round. It's really worth the trouble. I thought I'd lose the first round already, but I even didn't, it's always suprising what happens, and to see what you are really capable of. Nice to have you in Pixelcraft

Let's not get carried away in the first round, lets do quartic DM's in the final round or something.

Akuso, we were joking. Topics are more along the lines of "Glow in the Dark" and stuff like that. Technical knowledge isn't needed.
