Yep, we are really looking forward to this month's turnout. I would say, "the sky is the limit" but that is clearly a lie, as there is No Limit. Except that it must be made in ZC.
NJF has come up with some good questions for the community. Hearing back about this contest, and what you enjoy, don't enjoy, like, whatever, is really important to us, and we feel, the contest as a whole. I know I'm a host, but I've only been involved with this project for a little over a month now, so I feel it's fair to answer these questions, if I have an answer, that is.
What kind of enemies would you like to see in this month's contest?
I'm hoping to see a really wide variety of enemies. With a no limit theme, there's really no telling what to expect. That's why, for me, this is one of the more exciting themes. Before hosting this contest, the events that held the most interest for me were the ones with little to no "restriction" in the form a definite theme.
For those who can't script! If you could, what kind of enemy would you submit?
Something to make fun of Moosh
Does not being able to script discourage you from submitting an enemy?
Honestly, it did in the past. This is one case where having a specific theme can be beneficial though. Having a set theme means even if you can't script, if you have a concept, or idea that fits the theme, you still have a shot since everyone will still be held to the same source material. I dunno if that makes as much sense as I thought it did, but yeah. If there's no limit, someone can submit a super elaborate boss enemy that may overshadow the non-scripted entries entirely.
Do you like the current direction the contest is going with me and Anthus as the new hosts?
I thought those guys got banned.
Did last month's EotM meet or exceed your expectations? Or were you disappointed?
I liked it. Admittedly, when it was getting close and there were only two entries, I was feeling a little discouraged, but the turnout ending up being pretty solid. There were a lot of different takes on the theme of Holiday time, and that's a plus. Okay, so there were two snowmen, but they were unique. I think it was interesting too, that two entries both played on the "gift" concept (Moosh and Yloh).
What new and interesting themes would you like to see happen in the future of this contest?
Enemy of the Month: Swimsuit Edition.
No, but seriously, it might be cool to do an "elemental" theme. I don't mean like, all enemies must be fire/ electric etc, but maybe you can choose from a list of elements, and make an enemy of any element. If this was an event, a good point of discussion would be which enemy would kill another enemy in a Pokemon-like monster battle with elemental weaknesses.
What themes would you like to see return in the future of this contest?
If what I described above happened in the past (I only looked back to EotM 12, recently) then I'd say that.
But we want to hear from you guys too!
