How would this be fair to any nooby artists?


The artists themselves have personal responsibility to bring their 'A' game. No one is being elevated more so than anyone else, by separating people into groups, so as to keep everyone on the same playing field from the start.

We won't hold anyone's hand through this competition, it is up to each person to do their best work in attempt to fight for the final prize.


Well that's totally fair. Especially for the 5mil that they pay just to lose.

Why are you even posting in here? If "nooby" artists don't want a shot at 350m for a 5m buy-in then they're not obligated to join...

Don't you have other threads to piss on?

Why are you getting angry at a valid point. If you get angry this easily then you definitely should not be running this. Plus this isn't GAMBLING. This is graphics. Look it up if you're not sure.

I'm not running this comp, only the sign-up thread. And you are defending people that aren't even interested in joining.

we've put in most of the money for this comp
so were asking for a 5mil buy in
i don't think this is a big deal
there will be a loser bracket as-well for those knocked out
why should we finance the whole thing?
really the 5mil pretty much only covers the loser bracket so i really don't see why its that big of a deal
the rest is out of our pockets[we get nothing out of this just wanna hold a fun tournament]

The rules are the rules and they are to be decided by the organizers who have taken time and put effort into this. Don't sit there and moan. If you don't like the rules, don't join. Simples.

a 5 mil buy in for this kind of payout is better odds than any casino game
and 'chance' is improved by skill & talent
win

would've liked to participate but catch 22 here, hehe, need to earn some money by selling some sigs/art in the first place if possible

could we have a little information about how things will go?

will this be like a tournament where you have to 1v1 until you get to the top or will it be something else? I don't really understand the concept of tournament-bracket. Also, will it need the competitors to be of an even number... we are 9 now.

Also, any hint of who might be the judge outside of torn (like a known artist, friend of yours, etc...)?

Can I donate a bit even if I'm a participant?

How much time will we have to complete each battles? School is quite time taking for me and I have only little time each evening if I want to do a tag...

Also, you said that only the 1st battle will be a on the same theme for all. can we assume that each individual battles will have a different theme even if they're not connected? Could we have a little details about the themes? Will they be very specific or large?

that's about it

Thanks for saving the easiest question for last (lol). We are unsure right now how the structure of the tournament will be. We're going to keep the battles as much 1v1 as possible, but we may have to get a bit creative. Ideas have been thrown out there for 1v1v1 rounds or an "all compete" round with 1 person being eliminated out of the total amount. Ideally the way these things go is, there's a set number of people to join, so the bracket is already planned and made before anyone is applied to the tournament, but we started this with the intention of not giving a limit to the total number of people that could vie for the prize.

It is a friend of one of the judges that no one on here other than him, has spoken to, nor will they... to keep the anonymity aspect of that factor alive.

Absolutely, just mail Brooksy106.

By Fraltintin [1323203]

48 hours per round with 24 hours between rounds, is what we're looking at as of right now, but that is to be set right before the start of the competition.

I'm unsure if we're going to set a size on anything in the competition, as this isn't just a "sig" or "LA" competition, it's all forms, the things that will differ will be the themes. Each battle will have a different theme (other than the first round) than every other battle this applies to both brackets. As for which themes will be used, you'll just have to wait and see.

By Fraltintin [1323203]
that's about it

Thanks for asking

48hrs per round? I definitely think I may not be able to cope with that considering the time I have and how much work I have to do daily, hmm...shall I bail out of the comp?

It's weekdays and will spill over into weekends. But not just weekends.

From the time the theme is initially posted, you get two full days to work. Then the judging will commence and end subsequently 24 hours later. After that the next theme will be posted.
