LBPC Crown Contest #6 - The Results




Hey peeps!
We made it! :p
So what have we been up to? Well, aside from taking our time to see your awesome entries, we've also been working on a little surprise for all the winners! We will now have an official LBPC6: A Quest For Glory: Winners Hub (http://lbp.me/v/eb4e3b) at the LBPCentralHub (http://lbp.me/u/LBPCentralHub) account on LBP2! We hope that these hubs will prove as successful as the Spotlight Hubs, and send some much-deserved exposure your way :).

Well, about your levels.
We can't deny that when we were preparing this contest we wondered more than once if we were asking too much from you.

Well, actually we did, but we could have never imagined how insanely good your levels would be! This Community always has a way of surprising us.

We have been so happy, chuffed and honoured that 3 groups of epic and renowned Japanase creators joined this contest with their awesome creations.

Your epic sagas were incredible, from every perspective: Tech, visuals, story, gameplay... Every one from the the top 5 levels did something unique and innovative. We're so sorry that we can't give prizes to all of you, but we can sincerely say that you have been simply incredible.

HUGE Congratulations to everyone, winners, runners up, and honourable mentions alike!

You wouldn't believe how difficult it is to choose between you - you've all pulled off a spectacular job, given the high stakes at hand. Really, you all deserve so much more :)

And of course, big congrats to our winners, Velvet, Light, Alley Cat, and smasher! Hope you enjoy your prizes :D

I have to echo what Omega has said about the Japanese community too - I'm so pleased that you joined in, please do come back for more :D

Congrats to the winners, the runner ups, the honourable mentions and thanks a lot to the contest crew. I've only played the first 3 parts of the winner series (and the 4th one will be played soon, I hope), but they were mind blowing levels. The town exploration in the first level, the boulder chase in the second, and the suprise monsters attacks in the third level were gameplay sequences I'll never forget.

Again, congrats :)

Aaaw, this is both the best and the worst bit of being a judge. It's fantastic being able to announce the results but I would so like everyone to be a winner. There were some truly amazing levels in this contest - some spectacular and memorable moments in every series. The top three entries and two honourable mentions were out of this world but in fact all the levels were a blast to play.

You impressed us all immensely and thank you so much for all the time and commitment you all invested in entering!

As the other judges have said, we were delighted to see members of the Japanese community competing and we do hope you will have a go at future contests too. :D

I must say it was extremely hard judging them down to the top 5. The standard of quality was very high and everyone was astounded. This made it very difficult to choose indeed. It was a close one, so much so that I wish everyone could have got something. I honestly feel that you are all winners.

There were some truly amazing and memorable experiences throughtout. Parts where I sat back, my mouth dropped open or I could hear myself saying OMG, wow, amazing, very clever and arrr.

I'm so glad we have entries from Japnese creators, you're definitely on another level (no pun intended). It's now opened my eyes even more to the LBP Japanese community.

This has been a great contest. I would have HATED to be a judge on these.... and I would have had to flip a coin between "A Demon's Parlay" and "Princess Kaguya". Both had so many wonderful moments.

Congrats winners - playing the entries has been a massive amount of fun, and has resulted in some of the best series' in LBP2!

Oh wow! I was sure we wouldn't place at all. With all the great levels entered for the contest I was sure of it. There was alot of talent entering that made me nervous for our chances. Im really glad this was a diverse contest. It made it that much better and more fun. Also got to play some of the contestants other levels that I never heard of and became instant fans of them and thier level styles. I really cant wait for thier next levels to come out. Also thanks to dav1d0. You hyped the contest up with your progress updates and other stuff. Two months was a short amount of time for a 4 level story series and you guys made it look like a cake walk. I do wish everyone could get a prize for the time spent on the contest. Still, congrats to all the placers and runner ups. You made this a great contest and me a nervous wreck. Thanks for picking our series as the winner. We very much appreciate it :D Also Velvet says Hi!

My personal favorite is, Forgotten Dimention :) it's not the best but i really enjoyed to play it, it's worth checking that even if it's just mention.

Also is interesting that we had so much interest from Japan in this LBPCC, look like they love to make series and when you play level from Japan you always can expect something good ^^

On a more serious note, congrats to the winners / runners up etc. Would of been nice to have been up there with y'all but we all had other projects running and that compromised our level of quality... but just wait to you see the stuff we've been working on =p puts our series to shame.

(not sure if anyone else will share what they have been up to... but lets just say I've been taking a closer look at the tech I used in lbpc2 XD)

Once again congrats, thanks to the crew for organising the event... and see y'all next time

With all that talent flyin around who woulda thought!? Anyways, thanks for choosing our series it means a lot and helps justify all the hard labor we put in. Also, I want to thank everyone for the kind words.:)

Awesome! Thanks everyone for picking and playing our serires. There was some great competiiton out there and the more my friends said we got this contest in the bag the more I began to worry. I agree with L1ghtmare we were train wrecks. I've said it many times now but my favorite things about our series were the parts where we all came together with our abilities and ideas. Particularly level 1, and claiming the artifacts are two of the best examples of our teamwork. I also have to say that each of the other series in the competition brought their own unique styles and gameplay to the table and I wish that they could get prizes too but would settle for people getting out and playing them to experience the stories for themselves. Thanks again. Meow!

I think this was definitely a good experience for all of us Japanese community. Creating levels with friends was fun, playing other gorgeous entries was fun, and even waiting for results as one of contenders was fun. For myself, I'm satisfied with the results. The winner series was really outstanding with its heart grabbing introduction.

Thank you for many gentle words for Japanese community. I'll make another try because I'm very eager after the crown! XD

@A-tziluth - thank you so much to you and your team for taking part. We all loved your series. The sticker work was some of the best I've ever seen and showed true artistry. The rats, the dragon and the main Boss were amazing and above all you told the story so well. The ending with the old man saying farewell and looking up at the moon was genuinely moving. Great work. You and your team should be very proud! :)

Maybe the communities had to get closer earlier, but better late than never. :)

I must say that...the fire rat scene is one of top moments of LBP, stronger than anything MM did.
If I have to remember something about LBPC6 it's the fire rat scene, no doubt.

This must have been tough to judge cause of the huge amount of talent teaming together, each one bringing their own skills to the table creating some of the best stories in the game. I enjoyed them very much.:love:

It goes to show you, if you search through all the free glitched button bashing costume levels, you will find the talent named LBPC6!

02-26-2012, 09:21 AM
Hey mr-moneypenny, that's the spirit! There were some very cool moments in your series. You had some really good and creative platforming ideas in there. Part 1 was particularly good. It just all needs polishing a bit more. Four levels in 2 months is a big ask, though, I realise and there were only 2 creators on your team! I loved the ending to level 4 too. I genuinely laughed out loud. Have you thought about unlocking the later levels so it's easier for people to play them all? Some of the levels are pretty tough to pass so maybe unlocking would help get the later ones a few more plays.

Anyway, I look forward to your next projects! Thanks for entering and being such a good sport. :)

Have you thought of linking up somehow, I saw on lbp.me the gulf in plays between the first level and the others....?

Have you thought of linking up somehow, I saw on lbp.me the gulf in plays between the first level and the others....?

We thought about auto linking them from the scoreboard but alot of players do hate that...including me XD. They do all have lvl links in them so I guess thier choice is to only play lvl 1. We dont mind though since it gives more exposure to velvet and gets him more chances for players to hear his great music in the series and in his hubs. It was one of our "objectives" in the contest :D

Yes that^^^

I still think musicians are most under appreciated in LBP. Hope this contest helps get Velve the attention he deserves:D

Simply amazing to see such talent seeping out of the corners of Lbp again:) just a shame that these levels might not end up on the cool pages due to not being called "TROPHY KILL BEIBER NOW ZOMB SURVIVAL CHALLENGE WITH DEATH WATER!"

Great work guys. Really amazing stufffff lol.

We...
We think that we have asked very much with this contest, it was quite inhuman perhaps.

So, we tried to do a little more.
This is an ABSOLUTE EXCEPTION due to the peculiarity of the contest, but this time
only for this time
We will give LBPC pins to the 2nd and 3rd placement too.
I want to stress this enough.
This is a unique occasion, we won't do it in other contests, sorry.

My understanding is that crowns have to be supplied thought the Playstation Nnetwork Store, or whatever it's called now. It's DLC and has to be sent/activated codes generated and all that junk. But it's controlled by Sony.

The pins are much easier to offer but are still rare.

I think that this is a great thing for the 2nd and 3rd place to get the pins as a one off recognition for the epic nature of the contest!

We did think about asking for more Crowns but in addition to the issues Mr_Fusion mentioned, we also thought that giving everyone Crowns would make it look MORE like a draw. The pins will still be very rare despite the extra ones being handed out on this occasion. As Omega said this is very definitely a one-off. We just wanted to do something to acknowledge the special nature of this contest and the amount of effort and hard work put in by all of the top three teams. :)

We...
We think that we have asked very much with this contest, it was quite inhuman perhaps.

So, we tried to do a little more.
This is an ABSOLUTE EXCEPTION due to the peculiarity of the contest, but this time
only for this time
We will give LBPC pins to the 2nd and 3rd placement too.
I want to stress this enough.
This is a unique occasion, we won't do it in other contests, sorry.

Bravo,another right decision ! They deserve it.

Well that was a generous thing for the contest crew to do, sharing the love never hurts.
Now you'd think i'd be upset for only getting an honourable mention now but...

*stares at his contraption challenge pin*

You just made my current contest pin that little bit more rare XD

Good times... this is why you guys and gals do a fantastic job.
