Since my previous contests were overly complicated, this one is going to be simple. I'll lay it out step-by-step. Those who are up to the challenge, come at it however you like so long as you follow the rules. Here it comes:
1. Choose an official TCG card, preferably one that is Level-8 or higher. It can be any monster type, including Fusion/Synchro, Ritual, and Xyz.
2A. Create a Monster Card that specifically targets and counters the above targeted card. You can use 1 of:
a. its Attribute;
b. its Archetype or a Subtype;
c. its Effect/s;
d. its Name;
e. anything else you can think of with which to target a card.
2B. Alternative to creating an original/custom Monster Card you can create a Spell or Trap card that will allow an official TCG card to take the targeted card.
3. Have fun with it.
Rules & Evaluations
To enter, please send 25 points to me. I will take 5 points as an administrative fee, and the rest will go into the pot to be divided by the Winners as usual. Please, when you submit your card, include the Lore below the card as well. If there are any differences between the Lore on the card and the Lore below, I will take the Lore as it is below the card, so please be careful of spelling and grammar issues.
If you have any questions or doubts about your card so you can make it a better contender, ask. You can change your card right up until the final deadline.
As usual I will be giving each card a score out of 100, divided evenly between the categories of:
1. Name & Picture Choice: Are they interesting, and do they fit the card?
2. Balance: Balanced or over/underpowered?
3. Cogency: Does it make sense? OCG (or Xi CG) not required.
4. Vengeance Factor: How well it counters the targeted TCG card.
I will be accepting entries until July 9 at 12:00 EST, or whatever time is closest to when I get to my computer. The extra time is because I expect to be elsewhere on the 8th. The submission period is from July 9 - 15 at 12:00 EST. I am also inviting up to 2 posters to act as Guest Evaluators and help me out. I would like to get between 6 and 10 Contestants, and know realistically that we might end up with 3, and I'm fine with running the contest with just 3 if I have to. I think it would be more enjoyable, though, if we can get a roster that's a bit more full, so we'll aim as high as we can.
Any questions? If you're up to the challenge send me your 25 points and I'll reserve your spot. Let the games begin.
