Is the main challenge still going on this year? I've watched the count down and now that it's time is up I still haven't seen the start of the main challenge. I was hoping to give it a try this year.

I would like to try the challenge too this year for my first time.

I just don't know how does it work about teams for the competition; should every partecipant join a team?
And how do i join a team? Which one should i choose?
Aaaargh, so much questions in my head!

Sorry if you've seen these questions a lot of times but still i don't know about teams for the competition.

Thanks!

Over at Game Artisans Fred stated he was currently uploading the trailer, said it would take around 140 minutes and that was about an hour ago so hopefully not long, this would be my first go at this contest and I've been waiting for it since last year haha

Already started thinking my own entry..!

So guys, can someone explain me something about teams?

Which are the forums partecipating and how do i choose one?

I searched through the FAQ on dominance war website, but the page isn't there...

Thanks!

Stefan, just sending your first WIP image to a forums related topic about DW 5 would do it..as far as i know, after sending the first wip, you cant switch sides.

I've another question tho.. shall we create character sheets like in previous challenges, or would just one illustration be sufficient?

Phoenix-06
03-16-2011, 04:40 PM
You have to create a character sheet much in the same way you did in past DW challenges. Its listed on the rules towards the bottom in the 2D section, everything you need to know should be there

So where about's do we start posting work? I've noticed some forums have a special DW V sub-forum where you post stuff. I have seen that the submission process this year is apparently different from DW IV in that you don't have to submit via Game Artisans, so far no new info on that but it mentions the DW V page will be updated over the next few days.

I think since the DWV just gone live, all the forums will slowly over the duration of the day updates the sub forum for wip threads. Many of the mods here are have a 9-5 job. So i presume updates will take place a little later in the day if not early tomorrow.

Phoenix, what you can do in the mean time without losing that enthusiastic drive is to take a look through the themes and rules sets. you can sketch the ideas now and post em up when the sub forums are ready.

Yeah I started doing some quick thumbnails and basic ideas, it seems this years DM is a lot less restricted before it seems there were different races, then classes within said race and more this one all you do is make a GOD for any kind of race you want be in cryborg, demon, machine and so on. But that's a little harder than it sounds I think.

There is nothing for you to enter on the DW site (yet).

Lol, yeah, I had the same thing. I had it open in my browser since end of february and just pressed refresh daily. When that last image went up it stayed up when I pressed refresh even after it went live. Must've been that cache error thingy. But we're off now!

Good luck to all participants!

By the way, is there a way to see how many points you got if you weren't one of the finalists? I would like to know just for my personal satisfaction. Thanks!

Apparently, Fred (the sole guy who runs DW) is revealing a ranked-sorted view so that everyone can see what place they ended up (albeit not how many votes anyone received.) At least I think/hope he's doing this for all forums and all categories: Right now it's only implemented for GA's 3D artists: http://wwww.gameartisans.org/contest...mlistings.html (http://wwww.gameartisans.org/contests/domwar/5/entries_gameartisans_3d_teamlistings.html) but I hope he'll do that for all forums and for 2D too.

I've never been a fan of public voting but what's done is done. Personally I think either all entries should have been seen by one or more judges and the obviously unworthy ones eliminated, or they should all have been judged equally by points allocation in the final round. Still, I think the actual DW interface worked well and it was quite an easy process to get everything uploaded and view other people's entries.
