LBPC Crown Contest #1 - The Results

Hey guys, we're ready to announce at last! It took us a while (sorry!) but the higher spots in the competition (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?56865-LBPC-Crown-Contest-1-The-No-Floor-Platformer%21) were so heated, it took us a while to decide who was going to be declared winner.

So without further ado...

I think the only level I haven't played out of those is the first place level. I've queued it now though, looks pretty **** awesome!

Congrats RikiRiki-ita! :)

07-23-2011, 10:42 AM
Congrats to you all people!
Awesome work, it was very hard for us to choice a winner.
The competition between RikiRiki and Natuhito was really very absolutely uber stiff.
I must say that even the honorable mentions were all great and it was a pain to left some of those levels out of the podium.
But there will be always new Contest to apply to, and I'm sure with all the nice people enthusiasm they will all turn out great.

So thanks again for supporting us and great work!
Keep up the better and nicest spirit of the community!

07-23-2011, 10:47 AM
Congrats to everyone who truly put all their heart and soul into their levels and produced something special for us the enjoy. I would encourage anyone who is considering entering future contests to play these levels and ask themselves if they can create something of the same quality, we are looking for the best of the best, a crown is at stake after all :)

07-23-2011, 10:48 AM
Congratz Riki!

07-23-2011, 10:56 AM
thanks to all of you guys! thanks a lot to the contest crew wich have organized all of this! thankyou to the judges wich have for sure had bad time while choosing the winner. i also have to say that i was pretty sure "Gusty Forest" and "metallic sky city" were 2 podium levels! i always hoped to earn at least the third place, well i'm happy now i have not earned it :-D
i also loved Wu Tsung Sky!
i'm speechless at the moment so maybe i'll can write a better message in future. thanks again!

07-23-2011, 11:11 AM
Finally, we have a king !
Congratulations to the winner, the crown is more than deserved.
Congratulations to the runners-up, thank you for giving us excellent levels.

07-23-2011, 12:53 PM

Congratulations RikiRiki-ita!! Awesome. I'm happy for you, that level was brilliant. Congratulations to everyone who made the top 10. All those levels rock and are amazing pieces of work. Thank you guys for inspiring me to learn more and work harder. Contest Crew....thank you guys for all your hard work.

ps. maybe this thread should be locked before some nincompoop comes and starts complaining about the top 10 and winner and starts a 30 page argument. You know it's going to happen.

07-23-2011, 02:39 PM
Sigh... I tried my best, i gave it all i had, my level had around 300 plays, these had over 10000 plays before winning the contest, they have had lots of fame i hadn't :( I am a unknown creator, but i will always try and enter these cool contests. Congratulations rika you deserve a crown!

07-23-2011, 03:12 PM

07-23-2011, 03:51 PM
Well... I can honestly say this was an exciting contest and a great start to the beginning of the new contest series:)
I am glad for those who won and give applaud for all those who participated.

Contest crew, thanks for getting me to start building levels. This was probably the push a lot of us have been waiting for to start making levels. Go LBPC!!:p

07-23-2011, 03:55 PM
Everytime i check these contest forums i feel alive. xD

07-23-2011, 04:02 PM

07-23-2011, 06:39 PM
While I don't necessarily agree with the results, I will express my gratitude to all of the creators who made the fantastic levels, as well as contest crew who put tons of effort into this.

07-23-2011, 07:11 PM
Man I'm so happy for you Riki!! I knew your level should win the moment I hit the peach floaties. The reasons I feel that this one had an edge over the others is the pacing and the fact that its just more FUN!! Seriously I was a giddy little school girl my first time playing this level. All the others that got placed or mentioned I couldn't argue against any of them. Really this was a fantastic competetion. All hail the king!!

07-23-2011, 07:57 PM
Congrats, good luck when God gets his level done though. :p

07-24-2011, 03:34 PM
Wow congratz to everyone! Also thanks a lot to the contest crew for making these competition for us :D.
I haven't played or seen the first place level before :O. I have to try it :)

07-24-2011, 04:43 PM
I request HD recordings of my level regardless of it was in 2nd or 3rd place right now!!!!

07-24-2011, 05:14 PM
Wu Tsung Sky was my winner, but hey, the competition was pretty tough. 5 or 6 absolutely outstanding levels. Awesome job to everyone. Congratulations Riki!

07-24-2011, 05:53 PM
From the contest description, I had the impression that all the judges would be playing our levels. Only three judges played my entry.
Congrats to the winners, Gusty Forest was my fav.

07-24-2011, 07:26 PM
I'll be sure to have a go. (including the Honourable Mentions!)
2nd place seems more my thing than 1st but we shall see. :)

Looking forward to the next contest. The community always needs quality multiplayer levels. :D

Oh, can you add LBPC links to the OP?
(for posting feedback and such)

07-24-2011, 07:28 PM
Greetings,Im really glad and surprised too see my level in the third place,I played a lot of great levels for this competition.Congratulations for the other creator who gen in the top 3,spacially for Riki,he really deserve this crown.Thanks again.

07-24-2011, 09:22 PM
From the contest description, I had the impression that all the judges would be playing our levels. Only three judges played my entry.
Congrats to the winners, Gusty Forest was my fav.

Not every member of the crew work as judges every month, we will rotate on a monthly basis to not have big loads of work every month, and be sure that judging is a pleasure and not a routine.
And at least a couple of us has alternative accounts ;)

I want to be 100% honest.
The deciding factor because Natuhito arrived second is the boss battle, it kind of interrupted a gameplay flow that was almost perfect until the battle, while Riki's level kept his pace up until the end.
It was really hard for us to decide, so unfortunately we had to be nitpicky about something.
Both levels would have deserved a crown, but unfortunately we only had one. :(

07-24-2011, 09:41 PM
We want an interview with the winner! ;)
Congratulations Riki, you deserve the crown. The gameplay was stunning.

07-24-2011, 09:43 PM
Congrats Riki, you really deserve it :D I have played most of the other contributions and I must say that I can|t wait until the next batch of levels when I come home ^^

07-25-2011, 06:57 AM
Congratulations! I've played some of these levels and im really impressed. When i first saw the "no-floor" concept i thought it would be really challenging to come up with something fun to play and not repetetive. Looks like i was wrong though! These levels are quite fun to play (even the "non- top three" ones").

07-25-2011, 11:14 AM
Oh man...Wu tsung sky was incredible. How it was not even 3rd is beyond me (before I get some flak I haven't actually played the top 3 yet...guess I'm in for a treat). I hope the quality continues on into the next competition, even though playing multiplayer in LBP is rubbish (at best 1 second lag -_-).

07-25-2011, 03:39 PM
Wu Tsung Sky was an amazing level from many standpoints, particularly with respect to visuals and architecture, but ultimately it's difficulty worked against it. Our finalists were chosen because they were not only highly polished, but also well rounded levels. If you go back and read the judging criteria again, you'll see things like pacing and balanced difficulty contribute to the gameplay score.

Remember, the key here is fun, not frustration.

07-25-2011, 05:07 PM
What if I made a super-ultra nerfed easy mode? :P

07-25-2011, 06:43 PM
What if I made a super-ultra nerfed easy mode? :P

Then you'd be a sell out.


07-25-2011, 06:46 PM

u mad? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

07-25-2011, 06:49 PM

SLS10 is clearly mad.

But whatever.


(u mad?)

07-25-2011, 09:00 PM
congratulation riki and all the people who get a good place

07-25-2011, 09:59 PM
Whoop! My level is mentioned! Cool....

07-26-2011, 03:55 PM
i played the 1st one , pretty hard i must say :D but awesome

07-26-2011, 10:26 PM
I really hope that there's another platforming contest soon.. I think that third one is Cinematic maybeh?

07-27-2011, 09:01 PM

Congratulations! An applause is in order for the runners-up and honourable mentions, too, though Culture Meeting was so hard and awesome.

07-28-2011, 02:09 AM
Big congrats to the winners! I love you Riki!! :D

What ticks me off is that this contest can start and end in a quarter of the time its taken for the friggin MTG contest which STILL isn't done. :rolleyes:

So good for you contest crew! You are 400% better than Mm in my mind!

We've discussed doing a cinematic contest at some point. But I think what we have in store for you guys next is far more original.... stay tuned!

07-29-2011, 07:05 AM
I'm addicted to LBPC contests! xD
They're so awesome thanks again. x)

07-29-2011, 11:39 AM
Wow! All these levels really deserved the contest wins :D
(Sorry and no offense to those that didn't win :( )
But all the levels on the list I played, were amazing and the Crown well-deserved! :p
Nice work Crew :) Thanks for making it possible to make an amazing level and stand out :)
It really improves the Cool Pages :)
