Stick-Maker of the Year l 2017 ♚ *Who's Taking the Gold?*

Postby The Black Mamba » Fri May 12, 2017 12:45 pm

Year 1 I Year 2 I Year 3

Image

Sticks by: Bimmer (Samurai), Clies (Azure Striker Gunvolt), Four (Human, Robo Brain), Llama (Gyarados, Robot), Merkury (The Dark Demon, The Grinch), Sifter (Default Armour), everything else by TBM.

I'm glad this competition has seen 3 years, hope we could keep this going. Sorry I couldn't make this year's thread super bad ass, I've been busy with work and honestly didn't think I could top last year's thread lol (poster kicks ass though). Anyway, I said I'd destroy people this year, no? So let's get this underway! S.M.O.T.Y. 2017!!!!!! IF YOU MAKE STICKS JOIN!!!!! FUCK YOUR SCHEDULE!!!!! You have a month from when we start actually start, so you'd have plenty of time to wow the panties off everyone. Plus, Raymond is contributing actual cash prizes to the winner (via steam or paypal)! If that doesn't motivate you I don't know what will. I won't start this competition with under 13 people, that's the magic number. Join motherfuckers.

This is how it's happening:

Imageound 1
Basically just weaving out who will make it to the second round. There will be a deadline for you to submit your stick and then another week until the next deadline for the judges to pick the top 15 who will move on. Everyone who's participating in the competition will have a chance to make it to the second round.

Note: If only 15 join then the top 10, if only 10 then top 5, etc.

Imageound 2
The remaining 15 will have to make another stick, by the deadline, to be able to qualify for the top two.

Imageound 3
(Shit's gettin' real)

The remaining two will have to duke it out with their stick-making abilities and try to make something more impressive then the other. There will be no deadline for the last round, voting starts when both sticks are in. Even though there's no deadline, I do ask that if you manage to make it to the last round, you finish your stick in a timely manner, as courtesy to the judges and people awaiting to know the winner.

You will be judged based on creativity, overall look (this includes holes), and functionality.
Judges
Waffles Mgee

Prometheus


*Please note that if you did volunteer to be a judge you may not participate in the competition*

All staff members will be considered for judges before I select any regular members, since Ray is letting us use the staff area. If only 1 or 2 spots are left after selecting from every staff member THEN I'll consider regular members as judges. Ray agreed to give temporary staff access to any regular member I select as a judge. So all judging will be done in the staff area. Judges, please post the name of the people who are proceeding to the next round, every round.

How long I'm thinking it's gonna take to get to at least 13 participants, you'll have time before I post an actual due date for round one. Gary you're a judge, llama you're in.

Hey I'm in! If I can meet deadlines that is. Hopefully things will run smoothly, but figured if I'm going to be here may as well take part in this.
