    BSE Version 5 Round 8: It's a Trap!!!






    What is B.S.E.?

    It's a very simple yet fun idea, you will be given a sequence of moves and a ”special element” that must be performed in a combo. The combo is being performed by ONE stickfigure against another stickfigure. The special element can be anything from superpowers and special weapons, to different environments and music synchronization.

    An example:

    Combo: Punch, Punch, Kick, Kick, Kick."
    Or "Punch, Kick, Throw.

    Special element: The combo must be performed inside a wind tunnel.

    The combos will become more advanced the further on down the competition. The final round will always have the longest combo of them all.


    How many rounds?

    There will be 10 rounds, each one will last 2-4 weeks. No rounds will be shortened or lengthened, even if everyone finishes their animations early, or most people don’t finish on time.

    Length?

    There will be NO minimum length. However, obviously, length may act as a catalyst for getting more points, which will be distributed for actual animating skill.

    Can I miss a round?

    You are allowed to miss out rounds and you are allowed to join this competition at any round you want, although this will obviously affect your overall score.

    I'm finished!

    At the end of the 10 rounds a winner will be chosen from the highest overall score, and an award will be given to the highest scorer of every round. The top mark for each round will be 10, your end score will obviously then be out of 100.

    Let's get into the action!

    ----------------------------

    Combo for this round!


    Kick, Throw, Kick, Punch, Uppercut, Jab, Jab, Jab, Knee, Counter-Back Hand, Punch, Elbow, Elbow, Elbow, Punch, Side Kick, Side Kick, >>FINISHER <<

    Counter- grab, knee, takedown, grab**counter- Eye rake, sweep, Rear Naked Choke, Dispose of the body.


    What's the part red of the combo?: You'll perform your normal combo until the finisher, but if you want an addition of 1.0 points you may continue the combo adding the red combo before the finisher!. This is an optional thing, but if you want a +1.0 point for your average score of this round, you're free to take it!.



    Special element: The combo must be performed in a room with spawning traps! (the room must have at least 3 traps already spawned before the combo starts

    *The traps must spawn each 5 seconds


    DUE DATE: August 1

    Countdown!!


    Yeah this is a hard combo and a hard element to execute!!, I wish you the best of lucks!.

    Description of each hit listed on the combo

    Kick- Your basic forward moving kick attack.

    Throw- Grabbing and throwing the victim in such a mannor that causes their entire body to come off of the ground.

    Punch- Your standard forward punching attack.

    Uppercut- Your standard verticle punching attack. More effective than the normal punch.

    Jab- Quick, short forward moving punches. Less effective than the normal punch.

    Knee- The act of striking an opponent with the knee.

    Back Hand- The opposite of a slap. The arm will be straight, fingers extended and joined. The arm moves in a swinging motion as a single unit such as the blade of a sword, striking the victim with the back portion of the hand rather than the palm.

    Elbow- The act of attacking the victim with the elbow portion of the arm.

    Side Kick- A powerful kick. During execution, the entire body turns towards the opponent with the swinging leg, thus giving it more momentum and power.

    Grab- The act of grabbing an opponent in an way using the hands.

    Takedown- The act of forcing the opponent to the ground by any means necessary. Examples would include a body slam, tripping the opponent by using their body weight against them by knocking them off balance, a heavy push, etc.

    Eye Rake- The act of gouging out ones eyes with the fingers. The objective is to scratch the eye causing it to bleed, effectively blinding the target.

    Sweep- A leg to leg attack. The leg should be full extended and move as a unit such as a sweeping a broom. The leg will come into contact with the victims leg, pushing it in such a mannor that would knock them off balance thus knocking them to the ground.

    Rear Naked Choke- A blood choke, used to execute an opponent. To perform a rear naked choke, approach the enemy from behind, wrapping the dominant arm around their throat in such a manner that you grab your opposite arm bicep. With your free arm, place your palm on the back of the opponenets head, pulling backwards as you constrict your choking arm around the neck. Check Reference >>......https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LppnEfRoFIM

    Dispose of the Body- After the rear naked choke has been successfully performed, the attacker will use any of the active traps remaining in the room to dispose of the corpse. Examples would include throwing the body into a grinder, saw blade, or land mine. Be creative.

    1- Yeah they can trigger them as long as 1 trap appears somwhere each 5 seconds (whether or bot gets triggered) is ok.

    2- count the "body disposal" as a finisher, if you want to do the extra combo do as you listed but don't count the finisher you added at the ending, if not just animate the combo normally till the finisher.

    If you start the animation off with a spiked pit trap, a saw blade trap, and a shooting arrow trap, all active, then every five seconds a new trap would be introduced on top of the three active ones that you have.

    When you think on a trap, spikes and lasers come to your head, but as long as it hurts a stickman it can be considered a trap, and of course if it's a laser or a bomb, it can dissapear after it's activated.

    Is ok then pyro!, as long as the trap can intervene with the combo in some way, go for it.

    No. The optional part at the end to get a bonus score is an extended version of the original combo. You cannot alter the order.

    Like if I have mines do I need to actually show that the mine is there or can I just show an explosion?
    Since is a requirement I'd recommend you to make them visibles, and if they're mines, just draw a grey dot or something on the floor.

    I would say no, because there is no longer any reason for them.

    Traps can spawn faster than five seconds, but no later than.

    ~Arch-Angel



    Just realized Pox's question is similar like Pyro's on the frontpage (missed her "intervene" word). Well, for the sake of making it clearer,
    Quote Originally Posted by Pox View Post

    The characters should interact with the traps. The reason it isn't in the combo is to allow more flexibility for you all to be creative.

    CnC from Judge 2


    FL-Nordin - The room and traps were extremely well animated. So was the excecution of the combo. At first I really didnt like how far zoomed out the cam was, but as the animation went on I kinda understood why. I still would have wanted it a bit more zoomed in though to make it easier to know what to focus on. Overall it was great!

    SJT15 - Really nicely animated room. I like how those spikes were constantly apeparing and dissapearing as the combo went on. The excecition was great. I like those "Kixx-style" trails. Other then that though, there wasnt really anything that caught my attention that much. And the finisher was a bit sudden and not as epic as I'd want it to be.

    PivotBlimp - Even if the sticks were not perfect and the room was simple, the force in the attacks and the creative combos caught my attention. The finisher was very sudden and simple though.

    Chewy - Excecution was smooth, but very simple. Almost no interaction with the traps at all, and no sound effects for the traps either.

    _SAVY_ - Not that many traps that I could notice. The excecution was good but nothing that caught my attention. Poor color choises for the backround as it's really hard to see Quickfeet.

    Pyrosamurai - The animation was pretty good, although it was hard to follow. It really would have been better with sound effects. And the change of scene made it feel like it was animated by 2 diffrent people. It was rather confusing and looked rushed.

    I went ahead and changed the colors in the combo to help show everyone when the victim/attacker switch rolls. Where the colors change shades, that will indicate a switch, or counter. There is nothing new about this mechanic with the animation. Once you reach the gray strip where the word "counter" starts, that will represent when the attacker becomes the victim, and the victim becomes the attacker.

    Hey there! Please excuse my general absence in the last couple of BSE rounds or so. I've just had a lot on my plate and couldn't really do much for any of those rounds. However, I'm currently collecting the data of scores from all the rounds that we had so far to make an updated overall scores sheet that shows where everyone stands in BSE right now! (from first to last place based on the total amount of scores each person has)

    It takes time, but it's about halfway done and it should be ready tomorrow afternoon, so keep a look out for it! Thanks!

    Then...what about the excel sheet I already worked on? :'v
    Supposed I could still do mine, then I've re-updated the scores to change pyrosamurai's round score due to his judging justification on previous round (thanks Kursura for telling me first). Thus, making him into 4th now while _SAVY_ is on 5th. The competition for the 3rd battle is on between them and PivotBlimp, while the 1st battle is on between FL-Nordin and SJT15. Oooh, the tense~

    Man, I see this round is getting bit harder now. Yet, I'd love to see how the results will be for this round's challenge. Good luck, all.

    Haha, I actually didn't see that. Seems like I'm a lot more behind than I thought. o:

    Also, that's a great list, Mustika! You did a good job! I could go ahead, refurbish it in Flash, and make it presentable on the front page in a spoiler if you'd like, though.
