Note: Hey everyone, it's still Jeff posting but I'm now using this new official account in order to share access to this thread with someone who's willing to help me keep things better organized this time. Are you interested in helping out? Please drop me a PM on my main account (http://forums.stickpage.com/member.php?10345-Jeff) and we can chat about it further! Thanks for the support, these competitions are stronger with the community behind them!

Details


Remember when gaming was an underground subculture? Who cares, is anyone else watching the Spring NA LCS? It's so hard to keep up with all the competitive gaming tournaments we have going on today, but we're big fans of eSports here at StickPage so this spring we are channeling the high energy competitive spirit of modern gaming with For Glory: eSports! We want to see what sort of crazy exciting shown downs and stories the amazing animators of our community are capable of making! Choose any one or more eSports game (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_eSports_games) that you love and SHOW US what it's like from within that world. There are so many different genres, game modes, and game worlds to play around with, and interesting real world events to draw inspiration from (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkTRhkvSKOQ)! This is also a great chance to experiment with following multiple narratives if you want to challenge yourself! You can be as meta as you want, or just stick to a setting that's within the game world. The best part? You can use music from the game if you want. As long as the music you're using comes from the game you're animating, it's safe!

Last competition blew us away with the overall quality of submissions. Think we can top that for our first Spring competition? We will again be looking at the story you're able to come up with using the given source material, so try your best to think of an interesting angle! Good luck everyone!

Don't forget we would like all entrants to make a thread in the Works In Progress (http://forums.stickpage.com/forumdisplay.php?30-Works-In-Progress) forum and keep it updated with your progress as you animate your submission. Doing this is not a requirement but we will be granting bonus points to those that keep their thread up to date, so make sure you make your thread to collect those points! Here are some past examples of the kind of thread we want you to make:

Entry Scoring


Submissions will be scored on the following criteria:

Submission

Story - Animation contains proper elements of a story such as setting, characters, plot, exposition, conflict, climax, and resolution
Animation - Demonstration of technical animation skill. Things such as timing, rhythm, arcs, squash, stretch, etc. will all be taken into account.
Art - Artistic ability. Includes aspects such as scene composition, use of color, perspective, lighting, attention to detail, etc.
Direction - Your ability to direct an animation, taking in to account things like intent, story telling, emotion, use of music, use of sound effects, etc.
Originality - We're looking for entrants to try new things! The more you set yourself apart the better.
Extra
Posted Selections in Competition Thread
Created WIP Thread
Kept WIP Thread Updated
The animation itself accounts for the majority of total possible points, but final ranking is not determined solely by how good your animation is. The above criteria will be scored out of 30, with 3 extra points for following the Extra section.

Lateness Penalty


These competitions are designed to last a total of 2 and a half months, but we understand that life can get in the way. If you're in need of more time, you can submit any time before the absolute deadline (see below) but there will now be a 0.35 point lateness penalty off the final score for every day past the original deadline you take, so use this option wisely. Time management is a good discipline to have; this is to remain fair to those who put in the effort to finish on time.

How To Enter


To enter the competition all you need to do is reply to this thread with the game(s) you have chosen to base your animation on. Every few days we will collect the names of people who've posted and add it to a list of participants which everyone will use to keep track of who's entered and their progress. You may still submit an entry even if you don't make a WIP thread or announce your choices here, but you will be at an automatic disadvantage to those who do! When you have finished your entry, ensure you've met all the requirements listed below and send me a private message with your PayPal email address and a link to the SWF or video download of your entry. We will collect submissions and announce the winners according to the timeline above. We will be releasing the submitted animations on a weekly schedule after the competitions ends, so remember not to leak your entry anywhere until two days after it goes up on official StickPage channels! If you do not supply a PayPal email address you will not be able to receive your prize if you win.

Requirements


These must be followed in order for your submission to qualify. Failure to meet these requirements will automatically disqualify your entry.

Must mainly focus on stick figures
Must be a complete finished animation, cannot be split into multiple parts
Must have sound effects & music
Credits & introductions should not be excessively long, we will not accept submissions that have more credits than animation
Must contain a minimum of 90 seconds of animation excluding any introductions or credits
Must contain official or custom StickPage branding (download official Flash package (http://forums.stickpage.com/StickPage-Branding-Package.zip) or MP4 video package (http://forums.stickpage.com/StickPage-Branding-Package-Video.zip)), applied in the following ways:
Introduction - A brief animated introduction to be placed at or reasonably near the very beginning of your animation, after any preloaders and before any other introductions
Main Menu Link - If your animation is a SWF and has a menu, a link to StickPage must be present somewhere in it
Watermark - A StickPage watermark must be present in the lower left-hand corner of the animation throughout playback, must be a link to StickPage if it's a SWF
Credits - StickPage must also appear during the credits, must be a link if it's a SWF
All released versions of the animation must contain the StickPage branding described above and no other branding except for the author's personal branding
Must not be released until a two days after it goes up on official StickPage channels
Must have a PayPal account to receive prize

No Copyrighted Music - Except where otherwise noted, such as in this competition. You may freely use the music from the game you have chosen to animate. Otherwise we will no longer accept submissions with copyrighted music for legal reasons. Please see resource list below for options.
Cursing - StickPage is frequented by a diverse range of people of various ages and cultures, and as such we tend to air on the side of caution when it comes to a controversial subject like whether or not swear words are appropriate. We would rather you avoid swearing completely within an animation.
Extreme Gore - In the past some talented animators have gone a little overboard with their graphic depiction of violence and gore in their animation, and it left some viewers feeling uncomfortable. To avoid upsetting our viewers we may ask you to tone down some gore if it's too much. This is only in very specific circumstances where the depiction is realistic enough to affect viewers. Your average stick figure cartoon violence is still perfectly fine!

FAQ & Help


Not sure on something? Feel free to post questions in this thread! Common answers or good questions will be added below.

Do I have to use a game on that Wikipedia list?

No. There isn't always a consistent definition for what is an eSport, so if you want to do a game not on that list that's still a popular competitive game feel free!

What Music Can I Use?


As of 2017 we will no longer be accepting submission that contain copyrighted music, except in specific cases that are noted in the competition description (such as this one). This makes it a bit harder for authors to set an appropriate tone, so we've copied a handy list from Newgrounds (http://www.newgrounds.com/wiki/creator-resources/music-and-audio-resources/royalty-free-free-music) of royalty free music you can use in your submissions. Please make sure you are not using copyrighted music as your submission will be disqualified if you are.

You can just set it into 18 years old, that will resolve the problem. But you might have a problem to withdraw it lol.

I can say Elsword is an eSport because it has competitive multiplayer gameplay iirc.

Mk, does does it have to be an official Esports game or can it be anything that's competitive multiplayer? If anything competitively multiplayer will count, mine will be about Dark Souls (Dark Souls 3 specifically) but if it has to be something official, then I'll take Super Smash Bros instead, assuming multiple people can pick the same game, since that one's been called already.

Here's my game:

i have a question
Do it need to be represent the esport or just all about the game itself?

i mean i am choosing the esport game but do it need to represent the esport?like xXMamatXx vs sktfaker something like that?
or just all about the game

I need clarification on this as well.
But the title clearly has the name eSports on it.
Sooo.. yeah, should we include the actual people playing it or just the idea of it being a competitive match between two opposing teams?

It already mentioned here

You can be as meta as you want, or just stick to a setting that's within the game world.

I think this is the overlying theme here. Whether or not you want to add the hype and audience is up to you.

I see, also can we make the players full-body/cartoons while the game itself focuses on stick-figures?
Since the animation would definitely focus on the game then the game should be composed of stick figures.
But the player scenes would be only cutscenes and I can best express the expressiona when it's not stick figure.


It already mentioned here

You can be as meta as you want, or just stick to a setting that's within the game world.

I don't think I understand the statement, I don't know what the word "meta" means.
I searched up its definition, is it "You can be as creative as you want"?

Perhaps the best way to express my question is this.
Do we have to make something like this?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXnyyjyP3FA

EDIT:
Analyzing guramecon and Arch-Angel's statements, they're saying that it doesn't need an audience nor is it necessary to show the players.
Also, it is alright to animate only the game. A multiplayer game.

However, wouldn't it just end up like another game tribute if you don't show the players and the audience?

technically yes, but it depends with the participants whether they choose to be the meta itself or animate within the animation world.
But this theme is focusing the multiplayer competition (eSport), you can say this is Competition Multiplayer Game Tribute Legion lol.

LMAO, I first thought it was an adjective, now it's used as a noun. I don't know how to comprehend the word "meta" anymore lol. That's why I chose to ignore it XD

Ah, I see. lololol

Wait, since this doesn't necessarily mean that it has to be in an official competition setup with all the announcers and audience and prize pools, that means I can animate friends doing a friendly competition in, per say, an internet cafe, right? Still eSports.

That game should be fine! I know we might get a lot of "not an eSport" comments but there isn't really a clear definition yet for what is and isn't an eSport, so generally if it has enough of a competitive following you should be safe!

but I have a question, do I need to animate my animation in the game's universe or can I alter some concepts like the background but still use the main concepts of the game(like the characters) and also can I create new characters like ordinary people that use the champion's skills?

You can choose as many games as you want if you want to do a mashup. If you want to get more liberal with the game universe feel free to do so, but be warned if you stray too much from the theme your submission might be disqualified.

Sooo.. yeah, should we include the actual people playing it or just the idea of it being a competitive match between two opposing teams?

You can do either of those, maybe I should be more clear in the main post but the animation doesn't need to be about a tournament you can just have it take place in the game


1. Is it required to have a paypal account cause I don't have any(just 15 yrs old Lmao paypal requirement is like 18+)? If no then I guess I won't be joining. BTW new member here XD
2. Is Elsword qualified to this competition? Cause I'm already creating an animation based on Elsword out of boredom.
If Elsword is not qualified then I'll do Osu or LoL.

1. You do need a paypal to receive your prize. We cannot do it otherwise, but you can get a parent to set one up for you.
2. The animation should be made for this competition, it's not fair to others if you use something you'd already been working on before hand.


Mk, does does it have to be an official Esports game or can it be anything that's competitive multiplayer? If anything competitively multiplayer will count, mine will be about Dark Souls (Dark Souls 3 specifically) but if it has to be something official, then I'll take Super Smash Bros instead, assuming multiple people can pick the same game, since that one's been called already.

1. You do need a paypal to receive your prize. We cannot do it otherwise, but you can get a parent to set one up for you.
2. The animation should be made for this competition, it's not fair to others if you use something you'd already been working on before hand.

1. Ok I'll try to make my parents swt up a Paypal account
2. I didn't say I've been working on it I just said I already had a concept. Just started yesterday

BTW is it fine to use some photoshopped object instead of drawing one?

Is Elsword qualified to this competition? Cause I'm already creating an animation based on Elsword out of boredom.

Doing random character models and was wondering if my stick-figure could look like this.
Does this even look like a stick-figure? Because I might consider it.

If it has the anatomy of a stick figure, then it's a stick figure in my book, so that does just fine.

Even if I complete an animation now, it would not be of quality. My pride will be hurt lol

I'll still finish it, someday. When I have the time. But for now, I think I'll take a 1-year hiatus.

Yeah sorry everyone. We had an entrant who submitted the wrong file which caused the unexpected delay, as well as some coordination issues getting the scoring in on time. This is exactly why we're taking a break to restructure completely onto the new site. Running the competitions informally through the forum has caused an organizational nightmare for me and it's clearly not working for anyone's benefit. So the new site has the following system for competitions coming up:

- Dedicated section to browse current and past competitions in their entirety
- Automated system for joining and submitting to a competition, no more PMs!
- Notifications for every step of the competition directly to your notification box
- Automated system for judges to be alerted when entries are submitted; scoring system so there is no room for error or coordination problems
- Competition Management tools for people joining and people running competitions (we are likely going to have competitions that are run by other users)
- Integration with profiles so others can see the competition you're in as well as badges for participation or if you were a judge
- Integration with the portal so your submission will be published by us automatically
- Judges Picks is another subsystem that will let our judges choose which entries will be highlighted on the new front page

I know this doesn't excuse the issues we've had keeping house, but hopefully this will make it so much easier on everyone when we return. Then there's less stress all around! :D

Results are going to be posted by tonight at the latest once verified. Then the next time we do this it will be with a shiny new coat of paint :)

EDIT: To anyone wondering where the animations are from last competition - we've got them ready to be launched as featured content with the new site this summer.
