As I'm sure many of you have inferred, the TPA5 season is being prepared as we speak, and the season will start in just a few weeks.
(The topic will be posted within the next few days - I'm still ironing out some minor details) BUT FIRST: It's time for another cup design contest! TPA5 Shield & Signature Design Contest! (Deadline August 26) by sempaispellcheck You Can Design the Season 5 TPA Shield and Signature! Seasons One and Two of the TPA had very nice logos, with Tournament Cups designed by Sir Ricco. In each of the past two seasons, we have held a contest to design the TPA Cup - and in both years, that contest was won by ndrs! Do you have what it takes to wrest the Cup Designer's Cup* from the two-time reigning champion, as ndrs himself did two years ago? *Unfortunately, the Cup Designer's Cup is not actually a thing - it just sounds cool, and gets the point across. If you think you do, we want you to prove it! First, have a look at the four previous Cups: (note that there was no signature for TPA1, TPA2, or TPA3) Season One Shield: Season Two Shield: Season Three Shield: Season Four Shield: As you can see, despite their similarities, the Cups are clearly distinctive. There is no mistaking the one for the other, even without reading the year. So now you know what we want: The same, but different. Different, but the same. In other words, create a logo that is immediately recognizable as being in the same family as the others, but at the same time has a new and distinctive personality. More specifically: These are the guidelines that must be met by each submitted design for the TPA Shield: Your design must be based on the Standard CC Tournament Achievement Medal: Your design must include the CC star. Your design may (but doesn't have to) include the current year or season. Your design must include the letters "TPA" and the full title "Tournament Players Association" Your design must include a decorative wreath of some kind around the cup. The entire image should be in the neighborhood of 160 x 216 pixels. We also have a set of guidelines governing signatures - these are in accordance with CC's general signature guidelines: Your design for the signature must be submitted along with your design for the shield. The signature must include a copy of your actual cup image from the stamp picture (must be the same cup). The signature must be no larger than 600 pixels wide and 150 pixels tall. The signature should be less than 500 KBs in file size. Contest Rules: You have until August 26th, 23:59:59 CC Time (that's 2 full weeks, plus a few hours) to create your designs and submit them to sempaispellcheck using the PM Subject "TPA Cup Design Contest" (without the quotes). You must host your submitted images at least until the winners are announced. The entries will be judged by the Tournament Directors. The following prizes will be offered there is decent popular interest in this contest, consisting of at least 5 serious entries: if and only if Winner: A General Contribution medal as well as a choice of either 6 months of premium membership OR a pre-reserved spot in every TPA5 tournament. 1st Runner-Up: Choice of either 1 Conquer Cup entry (or equivalent value in Conquer Credits) OR a pre-reserved spot in all 4 TPA5 Majors. Fewer than 5 serious entries will result in no runner up prize. By submitting an entry, you obviously grant CC and the TPA the right to use your graphic. You certify that this is your work. Nothing is created in a vacuum, but no blatant plagiarism, please. Judging by some of the signatures and avatars out there, CC has no shortage of graphical genius, so this should be fun for a lot of you - and we sincerely hope it is. All the best, and good luck! sempai Top Tourneys by jdean1
It is my pleasure to announce the Top Tourneys event and then the Top Tourneys Competition. The Conquer Club Newsletter Tournament Team is holding a Top Tourney voting contest. This event will be spearheaded by me, and everyone can submit their favorite tourney here: http://tinyurl.com/k9rsf43. Vote for your top 3 tourneys, each one getting a point with your vote and your favorite getting two points! The Top 12 Tourneys getting votes will advance to a bracket, there will be byes and we will vote on 1v1 matchups until we get down to the top 4 tournaments. We will determine a ranking among them, and the top 3 on the list will be held again or a shorter version! Hopefully we can get the original owners to cooperate and run them, but if not me and the tourney team will run them. Points can be earned for the Top Tourney Competition in each of the tournaments, with the top 10 finishers all gaining points (10 for a win, 9 for 2nd, 8 for 3rd and so on). If a team tourney is chosen, the top 4 teams will gain points (10 points for each member for 1st, 7 for 2nd, 5 for 3rd, 3 for 4th). The top scorer will earn a GA Medal and be crowned the Top Tourneys champ. So until August 25th submit your tourneys and have them enter the bracket. Points to Consider: 1. You may not nominate your own tournament 2. Tie-Breaks to be decided by a 3-person panel vote of me (jdean1), DaveH, and another member of the War Games staff. If this occurs, we would gain extra opinions to help our decision from the winning players of the relevant tournaments. 3. Within the Top Tourney Competition, the War Games staff has the authority to remove a player from a tournament or not give them points or hand out penalties if players break tourney rules, competition rules or commit any acts determined to be against policy.
