Just a smidgen over a week until the deadline to the competitive apps! Though note that this date is prone to extension, but to be safe, please plan to make it for this deadline. When this deadline is met, the competitive app folders will be closed and from then on, the only characters that can be made are NPCs! NPCs may be created throughout the tournament.

Round one will begin shortly after this deadline.

Which brings me to my other point: we're aware there are some members out there that have participated in OCTs before, but we've also noticed many where this is their first time. As all the admins are, or were, active members of PMDE, we also see many people who are also in that group--which is fine, but note this group is NOT like PMDE! We will not be lax here; if you fail to complete a round, you will be eliminated, no question. Not only that, but in some rounds you will also be competing with other members, and those with the better entry will be allowed to move on. Works cannot be half-assed, or incomplete! So be prepared, if you have a contestant--this is, indeed, a competition.

However, don't let that discourage you, especially if feel you aren't as comfortable with your art; we will be judging on effort and storytelling, remember. On those grounds, everyone has the capability of being equal.

Thanks for reading this, and good luck to all of you!

So if we're eliminated, does that mean we're banned from this group or what does that mean?

If you're eliminated you have the choice of making your trainer into an NPC character. If you do this you'll still be allowed to participate in the groups events, however you won't be able to compete for the prize at the end. So no, we don't ban you from the group if you're eliminated! You get to choose if you'd like to stick around or not in a way.

from the FAQ:

My character was eliminated! Am I out of the group?

Goodness no! When a character is eliminated from the competition, they're still in the guild! There's a whole region to run, not to mention the capital and other places! Starting after round one, there'll be job postings up for every guild. These are optional, but they have rewards and incentives just like the tournament itself! Trainers may want to stick around, as the tournament's not the only thing happening in Saros...


Essentially your character can be converted to an NPC.

If you are unable to complete round one, unfortunately you can no longer be a part of the tournament. Sorry!
Though each round will be about a month long so perhaps you will be able to find time.

well, this is my first OCT, and since it is, I expect to get eliminated at the first round, but i don't care, i want to experiment how it feels like to participate and stuff, prolly i'm not gonna be very active unless it's a round. I like fitting a theme and rules and such, makes everything better and easier to order. i forgot what else to say, here is very late and maybe i'm kinda sleep

To tell you the truth I have 0 experience in an OCT. I've never even uploaded any art before joining this group. But I am determined to come out on top at the least be able to see dramatic difference between my art now, and my art when the tourney ends. You joined now give it your best!

Like other OCT's do you need an audition entry alongside your ref sheet as a contestant to enter? Or is it pretty much, submit and go?

Thanks for the extra words of info! I plan to reveal my app's "true form" during this week, since it's not the deadline yet, there WERE a few things I wanted to change, so will have to reveal it early. Ah well. the story remains the same. XD Can't wait for Round 1!

I don't expect to get far--I joined so I could practice drawing people, and I am not very efficient at drawing yet so my stuff will probably be pretty short. I'm looking forward to it though.

Question about modifying apps. If I want to give one of my pokemon a basic accessory, can I just do that whenever I want? Turns out one of mine totally ought to have a shawl but I didn't submit the app with him wearing it. Can I just update that if I want? And similarly, if I were ever to change my mind about a basic item, is it okay to swap them around as long as we only have one, or would you prefer we not do that?
Reply
:iconwindflite:
WindFlite Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012
If you want to change it, please do so before the deadline! When the deadline hits your apps are also, I guess, considered locked, so we'd prefer changes weren't made (aside from art updates n such). So your opponent doesn't end up drawing one thing and then finds out it's changed later haha
