I have some questions about the images

Does they have to show fully show the whole epicduel screen? Can it be a zoomed part of the screen as long as they fit the size requirements?

Do they have to show something new from Omega, or just the present epicduel as it is right now? (can we screenshot something that is not about omega, but still exists even though it is older?)

Thanks!

Can't address the first question, but can on the second question. So yes, basically anything present in the game right now can and will fit the requirements. For example, you could take a picture from your Faction HQ and it would fit the requirement. The wording of the contest is that way due to changes - both major and minor - to most features over the years.

@below: I actually knew what you meant, I have no idea what the answer is. :P

Thanks!

Let me rephrase the first question. Being flash images, they don't suffer from pixelization when zoomed in. This means we can Zoom in the browser window to make the epicduel screen bigger, without compromising it's quality.

Taking a screenshot would get you, of course, a bigger image than the original size. I am asking if we can just represent part of that image, in a 900x600 size.
An example could be a zoom-in of the Meteor strike, or a zoom of the Core/upgrade menu.

...Or must it be an image showing the FULL screen?

The developers can keep track of name changes, it shouldn't be an issue. There aren't any rules barring you from editing your post in this contest, though. If you wish to edit in your new name, go ahead.

For the contest; are we aloud to use different characters for screen shots?


Say If I want 'Sir Hulk' to get the contest prize, Do I have to use 'Sir Hulk' in the pictures or can I use my other profiles?

Lol why not just close the contest already. People only submit screenshots of things that already have been submitted 10 times. And that leads me to the next question; If say 10 players have submitted basically a screenshot if the same thing (say the yeti special attack) and the devs decide to use a screenshot of the yeti special, how do they pick the "winner"? The one who submitted the screenshot first, or just random?

games are cool I guess
EpicDuel


@oba: I think that the devs would probably select a picture which follows most or all of these things:

-The picture is cropped right (900x600)
-The picture looks nice and well-presented
-The picture displays the function(s)/feature(s) of Omega well

In the end, there probably will be a few similar pictures which will have to be debated on, but I think that this can be easily remedied by a vote by staff members.

Its going to take the devs forever to look through all of the screenshots... After only 3 days of the contest the screenshot thread is 6 pages long.

Edit: 8 pages going on 9 now.

Ikr. That's why I try to be creative. I hate those people who take random pictures of attacks an think they're so cool when anybody can do it.

YEah but NDB you can only be so creative in a very repetitive PVP game. Also, if someone see's a creative picture submitted they can easily go and recreate it and submit it and theirs could be possibly chosen over the originals. Should be interesting how this pans out! I can also see two 30 page threads in week or two

What exactly does nightwraith mean when he said to pre crop the image to 900x600? I thought editing the image would get it DQ'd.

If we just take a screenshot of the whole screen will we be disqualified?

I believe this is relevant I've changed my name to W H I T E H O U N D so when you are (probably giving me a cheevo for the contest) you know the account to put it on its because i changed my name-Just Saying

So my name on Epicduel right now is W H I T E H O U N D

Before it was Sir Caden

Its the same character

I have changed name. All submissions made by me with the name "ColdNightmare" should now be "The Handyman" instead.

@Samurai_ED:

The wording suggests it is only ideal to crop to 900x600, but not necessary. Under that assumption, anything bigger (ie. your whole computer screen) should be fine and could likely be cropped by the game staff themselves.


@Sir Caden/Oba:

Name changes can be tracked by developers, so no need to worry about not getting awarded correctly if you name change.


@bountysai:

You'll likely have to wait a few days or weeks for the contest judges to go through all the entries before they announce winners. Keep in mind this contest has only ended about a day ago.
