Default Grand Festival 2010

It has been some time since the grand contest hall in ASB Central has seen any use, but for the past couple of weeks work crews have been scurrying about the giant dome, cleaning the grand stage, testing the lights and sound system, and decorating the place with colorful banners and posters of famous contest pokémon of years past. This summer the hall will once more come to life, hosting coordinators of all skill levels for the league's second ever grand festival. Hopefully the appeals this year won't manage to entirely destroy the stage.

Grand Festival 2010

It's been quite some time since we've had a contest around here, and with the tournament from last year still running, I thought we might have a contest festival this year rather than another battle tournament. In order to allow as many people to participate as possible, since a lot of the newer players haven't had the opportunity to try out a contest before, I'll be changing the normal contest structure up a bit.

Once the sign-up period has closed, players will be split into groups of four, each one having its own primary judge. Those judges will write up the appeals of the players in their group, as well as score appeals written by other judges--that way, any given person will only have to write four appeals, rather than the usual eight or sixteen. Judges can also participate; they just won't do grades for whatever group they're a part of. Thus, every appeal should still get three or four grades, but there will be a lot less work placed on a single primary judge. The winner of each group will advance to the second appeal stage, and depending on the final contest structure, some other people may be selected to advance based on their overall score.

The structure of future rounds will depend on how many people sign up, but there will be one or two more appeal stages, followed by the usual final contest battle. I'll do the judging for the final rounds myself. As we'll probably have a fair number of people new to contests participating, the rules and contest stage will be pretty basic: the usual three-action appeal, taking place outdoors in a flat, grassy field with a deep pond at its center.

Finally, I'm looking for a ribbon sprite to give to the winner of this contest. If you decide to make one, you can submit it to me by PM. If several people want to make one, we'll have a small vote as to which will be used. The person whose sprite is picked will get $15.

In summary: looking for participants, two-three people to judge (anyone qualified to referee is assumed qualified to judge), and a ribbon. One week to sign up, then we'll get this thing started.

Prizes are as follows:

First place: $80, the player's choice of any one buyable pokémon, three rare candies, and the contest ribbon
Second place: $60, the player's choice of any one buyable pokémon, and one rare candy
Third place: $30 and the player's choice of any one buyable pokémon

If this doesn't count as a battle, sure. Even though I suck at contests.

If it does count as a battle, forget about it. I'll full up...
