So yep, that's about it for Arc 1. Here's all the stuff promised like a week late XD

For identities and icon showcasing, follow the fake cut

( Which is so much better than the yellow brick road! )

Everyone also gets a nice, shiny banner! To save everyone's FLists, the participation banner is under the next cut! Not exactly the prettiest thing on the block, but it's official!

Push me!Collapse )

Annnnnnnd finally we have the survey questions. I have questions for BOTH PARTICIPANTS AND WATCHERS! These will really help me improve so if you have a moment, please fill one out! (You have two months so why not? ^_^) Just send them as a reply to this thread. If you want them to be private, you can email it to me at finalatlamillia@gmail.com Otherwise, all your responses are public.

Participant Survey

Watcher Survey

Finally remember, we will be resuming with Arc 2 sometime in August/September (aka the Fall) so be sure to tune back in then! Thanks for all the participation and I hope you had fun!

Alright. So the verdict is in and only one person wanted to continue. So Arc 1 is OVER. I might make a "I was a participant at xeno_battle!" banner or something but I'm not gonna award first place/second/etc to people.

Things to look out for:
- Icons showcase!
- Survey questions
- Participation banners XD

Thanks to everyone for participating! If you don't want me to reveal your secret identity feel free to tell me before the icons showcase (won't come at LEAST until Sunday). My email is finalatlamillia[AT]gmail.com (replace with respective @ symbol). I'd appreciate it if everyone filled out the survey questions when I get them up.

That being said, I guess I have to put xeno_battle on a mini-hiatus because I'll be going out of the country over the summer. Arc 2 sign ups will be open in the Fall (August hopefully?) I'll be revising the concepts behind the game according to how you guys answer the survey questions (both participants and watchers can fill out a survey!)

Anyways feel free to reveal your own identity/post any icons you've made now. The official statement will be made with the icons showcase.

Thanks to everyone who voted/participated/watched!

Matthias =D

Okay so yeah, I have a major question. How many of you guys still want us to continue this Arc? I haven't gotten any votes so I'm wondering if all the old players aren't interested anymore. If there's no one left, I may as well just start getting ready for Arc 2. I know I haven't been the best mod, but I'm trying my best. So yes, comments are screened and I'd appreciate the input!

This toss up will last at most a week. After that, if we're just moving on, I'll make a post and everyone can reveal their identities/post their icons.

Whoo! Thanks for the patience everyone. Under the cut are three amazing icons! We're sure to rack up enough money to go see the Seraphim Sisters Live in Concert! Since there are only three icons, the three of you will simply be fighting over 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place! YAY NO ONE LOSES POINTS UNLESS YOU DIDN'T SUBMIT!

Just a range estimate, next week will be semifinals (Round 5) and the following week will be finals (Round 6)! I wanted to take it out longer, but it doesn't look like we have enough people to go longer than that! Right so anyways, back to the icons!

To the future I must travel, overflowing with strength...Collapse )

Voting ends next Sunday, May 18 at 6:00 PM CST. I'll have a survey at the end cause I know there's a LOT to be improved on and I'd really like some pointers ^_^

Okay so I found this major error in the battle logs that I made and Yuriev should NOT have been eliminated. I emailed the Yuriev player and hopefully I'll get a reply soon. So yeah, that was totally my bad and I am SO sorry for that. I do however want to announce that I've only received three entries (and to you guys who submitted I totally <3 you guys ^^;;;; ) but these people have NOT submitted:

Gaignun Kukai

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE xinifinity SUBMIT YOUR ICONS! I need at least a few more before I can actually put up voting. But yes to everyone else, thank you for your patience. Voting will most definitely be up by Friday May 16, 6:00 PM CST.

Hmm maybe the one week schedule is too weird, or perhaps no one noticed that we switched this week? Either way, we only have two icons submitted so I'm gonna extend it to Friday, May 7 at 7:00 PM CST. After that I'm gonna move on no matter what. Also, everyone please check the battle logs to see if you are still in. There were a few point KOs, which were not announced in the eliminations (eliminations listed were only from negatives KOs). Finally once again please note that we are going to be moving to a weekly schedule and icons after this week are due on Wednesday, NOT Friday. So yes, if it doesn't work next week, I'll just switch back to a two week schedule and... I'll just have to make it work before I leave for the Summer.

Wow people! Just three rounds and we're down to 8 iconists! We're getting pretty close to finishing. (And I finally got my act together and planned everything out! Yay!) Now on with the story! This week's challenge (YES WE ARE ON WEEKLY SCHEDULE NOW! PLEASE CHECK THE DUE DATE!) was suggested by one of the participants!

Storytime Storytime YAY!Collapse )

Icon RequirementsCollapse )

All icons are due Wednesday May 7th at 7:00 PM CST. Please be sure to plan accordingly. If you have any questions or would like to check a requirement with me, please comment and I'll get back to you ASAP.

WHOO RESULTS! Thanks you guys are so awesome! After I asked for more votes, you guys answered! I'm so happy! Here are your results!

Battle Logs: [X]

EliminationsCollapse )

People's ChoiceCollapse )

Congratulations to all the winners! Comments are not screened so feel free to mingle but no "YES I GOT THIRD!" or whatnot. Also, if you noticed I tallied something wrong, feel free to tell me in the battle log post, which has comments screened.

Whatever it was that sealed Sakura's voice sealed everyone's boost while you guys were trying to free her. So everyone who did not have Safety Zone is now under Seal Boost. If you have a Booster Pack, you can use it to get rid of the Seal Boost [HERE]. If not, there will be an item draw in Round 4 so you can try your luck then!

Cycle Change
And also, the change to one week cycles have been overwhelmingly yes from all the votes I received. So, Round 4 (which will come up tomorrow) will start the one week cycles. Here's a general timeline we'll be following!

Saturday or Sunday - Submissions open
Wednesday - Submission Close / Voting Open
Friday - Voting Close / Results (May be postponed to Saturday if not enough votes)

And then the cycle repeats, hopefully with minigames thrown in now and then <3

Avataricontest is a new icontest dedicated to Avatar: The Last Airbender. Each week, they feature two themes: a character and an episode. They are also looking for bannermakers as a new community. Be sure to join and take a look!

Hey you guys. I only have THREE votes at the moment. I'm sure everyone would love more votes to make it more accurate so if you get a chance, please head over to the voting post [HERE] and submit a vote. I have a very important question there as well which will affect the REST OF THE COMPETITION so please also tell me how you feel there as well.

Voting is closed Friday, May 2nd at 6:00 PM CST so thanks in advanced for the votes! ^_~

Hey you guys... when I give an extension, it's for your benefit in the case that you forgot to make the icon. No one submitted in the extension period. To the six people who DID submit, I thank you deeply. I loved each and every creative icon you guys made! But like drama people say: the show must go on! chaos, I know you have a really bad situation and I think I have a possible solution. Contact me ASAP!

Voting ends next Friday, May 2nd at 6:00 PM CST. No minigame this week. Sorry! I did, however, get Xenogears so I now have a better idea for themes that will work for Xenogears as well! =D
