World Cup 8 Level Collecting!

Post by danitah » 1 May 2020, 15:19

Hey elma community!
It's finally time to start levelmaking process for World Cup 8! It's time to send in all those amazing levels you have been saving up since last World Cup. :D

Who is in level team?
danitah, Ramone and roope are in the level team.

Deadline:
Submit levels before August 15. You can submit later but there will be a lower chance of getting your level chosen.

Submission process:
Send levels to danitah on discord or lauta PM, or e-mail to elmawcup8levels@gmail.com
When I receive your level(s) I will send a confirmation message back to you to let you know that we have received it.

Types of levels we are looking for:
As always we will be trying to choose a wide variety of levels. This doesn't mean that every single level in the cup needs to have a groundbreaking idea. If your level has a solid design and is enjoyable and hoylable it can have a good chance of being included.

How would you like your levels to be handled?
When submitting levels you can specify one of the following ways how you would like us to treat your level. If you don't specify, generally 'B' will be assumed. We reserve the right to make any changes we see fit no matter what you specify, but please be assured that we will do our best to respect your wishes and to preserve your levelmaking style and intent as much as possible.
  • A: I don't want any feedback and you can make any changes you want.
  • B: Please give me feedback first. Editing playability and visuals is ok.
  • C: Please give me feedback first. Consult me before editing playability. Editing visuals is ok.
  • D: Please consult me before making any changes.
Level submission rules:
  • By submitting levels you agree to not share them with anyone else until wcup is over. (You won't be told beforehand if one of your levels is chosen, so always assume that it might be. You may get critical feedback even if your level is chosen, and you may get positive feedback even if it's not.)
  • Be extra careful of playing the level online without locking it. To make sure, it is recommended to always use a separate offline elma folder for making and testing levels you make with the intention of submitting.
  • You can submit as many levels as you want.
  • You are allowed to play your own level in the cup if it is chosen.
More info:
This topic is for level collection only. All other info such as official start time, number of events, skips etc will be announced by other wcup staff members in a different topic.

Post for hype. Hype!

Good post. It's missing one thing though:

Every pixel apple will result in a 1-month EOL ban for the designer after the Cup ends.





It may've been irony. Or maybe not.

It's hard to design levs specifically for WCup. I feel too much pressure to do something special and just stare at the screen as a result. I didn't have this problem with the previous WCup because my lev was originally made for a personal pack where I could allow myself to simply have fun in the editor without worrying about anything.

Yeah I think it's like that for a lot of people, including myself. Just have to make some battle levs or something until eventually I accidentally make something that could be good for a cup. That's how I have to do it unless I have some special inspiration or idea, but that has been happening less often for me lately.

Thats bad thinking, wcup levs often get ruined by these "special" things thinking and levs get unplayable and bad hardik shit on it. I would love normal levs more than special shits on 1-2minit levs which these cups produce. "Man this is Wcup" - so wcup cant have normal levs? I would say please normal levs also at least, things which are 1/100 makes many players out of cup.

Good point. It's one of our main goals to make levels as accessible as we can for this wcup. There will probably still be a few traditional special or more complicated levs, or it wouldn't feel like wcup imo. I know everyone wants to make "perfect" lev before sending but it can be very useful if people just send a bunch of raw battle kind of levels, we might be able to make something of it or it might be pretty good already in "raw form".

I really loved special levels like wc606 (multiroute pipe by zebra), wc608 (ramone gravity), wc609 (long bartek tunnel lev), wc610 (massive AH by 8-ball), wc613 (epic rc by nom). They were really interesting to play and quite different to what we see in smaller cups.

I sent 2 special levels (gravity tunnel and tight pipe) for wc6 but after that I haven't really tried to make a serious level.

Thanks for all submissions! There is definitely still room for more submissions, and lev deadline has been extended to august 15th. You can send any time, even after cup starts, but there might be a lower chance of your lev getting chosen if you send after the deadline.
