Yeah! A way easier way to Explore Un'Goro.
Frustrating, but I'm out. The poll splitting and 4 days of voting feels like a bad format for this. The first poll had twice as many views and votes, so I've lost to people who received as few as 6 votes. I mean, I only got 11 votes, so I'm not trying to shit on anyone. I think it's just clear that public interest in the competition drops dramatically as we continue on, and makes me question the elimination format quite a bit.
Still, congrats to everyone! I'll stop by and offer some feedback when I can. I'll probably keep developing my stuff on my own elsewhere. Unlike the class competition, I still feel good about the overall direction of my project. Time to re-evaluate and consider paths forward.
On the bright side, I'm now free to create new ways of displaying my set! This was a simple test of the 'Contact Sheet' feature in photoshop, I want to play around with more narrative ways of display the set too. So on a final note, here's my set phase 1-3, all lined out in one nice big graphic. Click it to expand.
Honestly guys, I know everyone is excited about continuing their expansions, but the poll threads should be about the current entries from this and the last polls. Adding potential future cards could sway votes. The discussion thread should have been left unlocked to allow additional conversation.
I would put these into my wild egg druid deck so fast!
A lot of people are running wild token druid just like standard, with innervate, fledglings, hydras. SO WRONG. it's all about 1 drops, eggs, and knife jugglers. Why not add tons of zero drops to trigger those knives? I'm not exactly sure what I'd cut to get these in, probably my Enchanted Ravens, maybe even my haunted creepers.
Wisp Caller is maybe OP. I'm not sure Commune with Nature is OP, depends how many wisp generators you add beyond this.
Not to derail from the competition, but I think KFT is looking great. Fatespinner, Bring It On!, Dead Man's Hand, Cryostasis, Shadowblade, Coldwraith, Sindragosa, and Nerubian Unraveler are all really sweet cards.
Edit: seeing those names in purple text is making me realize how much dust I'm going to be burning reaaaal soon.
In regards to switching up the format for the next big competition, its something we can look into. Some initial points of concern:
- Keeping many of our entrants - lets say 100 people - becomes a big strain on us as mods to run the competition. That's what, 10 polls each round to keep them clean looking? 5 polls if you don't mind sifting through 20 entries of stuff per poll? Do we run polls simultaneously or one after another? Then we also have to make sure we're keeping track of whatever scoring method we're using - and that that scoring method is fair - across all the rounds.
- Another issue - yes, less people are casually checking in per round, some of which is likely down to lack of exposure due to upcoming expansion, but I don't know that people would be interested in checking multiple polls per round, with many different entrants. It's just so much work for the casual viewer. Compared to now, where there's just a few entries and they can digest them easily.
- Finally, since we'd obviously keep our scoring method open and be revealing the number of votes after each round for transparency, people would be able to see who's leading. Many people might just drop out after seeing they didn't get that many points and don't think its worth it. We'd end up with weird, uneven numbers of competitors, and due to the low retention of multiple polls I can't help but feel that a few people would be obviously in the lead the whole way through.
As I said, totally willing to consider switching it up, but those are just my initial hesitancies with that specific idea.
Well, this happened.
Well, in the expansion I had that I got eliminated from, this happened:I guess we all thought that a 4/3 statline justified a little bit more than Elusive.I'm sad that four people missed this phase. It kinda hurts because you know you would've completed yours, were you not eliminated— but then, they didn't complete theirs, so that's elimination too.
I think I might be going for this one, thoughts?
<insert usual rant about arbitrary and meaningless competition prompts>
Most of you have heard it probably, but these kind of prompts are bad. This isn't how game design works.
