Topic Subject: The Create-A-Unit Competition I

Hi everyone, welcome to the Create-A-Unit competition.

As you can guess from the name, this is a competition to see who can create the best unit within a given theme. So get your thinking hats out, start up your text editor's and get creating!

How it works
On Sunday we will announce the first theme. You then have exactly two weeks to create your unit and submit it to the downloads section.

In the week that follows the closing of the competition the judges will judge all the entries and pick a winner. The results will be announced on Friday. The winner gets bragging rights and he may pick the next theme.

This will then be announced again on Sunday, and the second Create-A-Unit competition will start. It will again last for two weeks followed by one week for judging, and so on, and so on.

The jury
For each round, the jury consists of 4 judges. Two of these will be TWH staff, the other two will be 'normal' forumers. We're looking for four forumers who want to take turns judging the units created. So they judge a round, then they can participate in a round, etc.

If you'd like to be a judge please post in this thread. The first four will be added to the 'jury pool' and will take turns being part of the jury. That way they can also participate in the competition.

If one of the judges can't judge a round one of the other judges from the pool will take his place for that round. In case of a staff judge not being able to judge a round another member of staff will take his place for that round.

Staff judges:
Andalus
Hussarknight
Mythic_Commodore

Non-staff judges:
Edorix
awesomated88
Caesar_Hadrianus
Profile Picture


Rules
  1. In cases not covered by the rules the jury decides what to do.
  2. Entries must be uploaded to the downloads section by Sunday (Forum time, aka EDT), two weeks after the theme has been announced. Entries received after midnight will not be eligible. The added on date shown for all downloads will count as the date the entry is received, even it it is not yet approved.
  3. After submitting your unit to the downloads section you must leave a reply in this thread stating you've entered the competition.
  4. You don't have to sign up in advance, submitting your unit to the downloads section and announcing it here afterwards is enough.
  5. All units must be your own work. You may not use work created by others. You may however use parts of Vanilla units.
  6. One entry per round per person.
  7. Entries must not violate the Code of Conduct
  8. No crying if you don't win, better luck next time!
  9. Have fun!


Round 3
Regional/Mercenary Units
Deadline: Sunday 22nd of November at midnight, forum time.
Judges: Hussarknight, Mythic_Commodore, Caesar_Hadrianus, Profile Picture

Hall of Fame

I could be a judge, so long as it doesn't require my presence on the forums at specified times or for long periods at once.

You don't have to be online for long periods of time. YOu just have to give your top-three and then the winner gets 3 points, 2nd gets 2 and 3rd gets 1. Person with the most points wins. To keep things easy Andalus or myself will also combine the different entries into one set of modded files so you can install and judge very easily.

I've added both of you to the list. Thanks for your interest.

Thanks. Now I have an excuse not to participate.

I will try to be unbiased, however if you vote for me in the Sepia Joust I will give you special attention.

Yup.

This will be for RTW only so that's not a problem. We'd like to do it for Medieval 2 and Empire as well but sadly there are too few people who know how to mod for those games.

THE FIRST THEME:

Worst combo

Try and make the weirdest, funniest, silliest, or just worst unit that is a combination of others.

Why don't you have a go yourself? Following this guide it isn't too difficult at all.

I've just submitted my unit to the downloads. It's called "Elephant Chariots" but hasn't appeared yet.

I can understand why.

It's not difficult, but it takes time, and you need dozens of programs, patches, plugins...

And you're running out of time.

EDIT: Occi, those elephant chariots look [text removed].

I'll judge later.

Anyway, they have appeared in the downloads section now.

In view of the fact that there has only been one entry thus far, the decision has been made to extend the submission time by one week.

The contest will now close on Sunday 11th of October at midnight, forum time.

Once submissions close, someone should make a mod with all the units in it. With all the succeding create a unit comps units added later.
