Now would be a great time for an official contest

Recommended Posts

@ShiftySamurai

With no updates coming for a minimum of 2 months it would be a great time for a contest or giveaway. The prize doesn't even have to be anything extraordinary. A clothing or kill pack or even just player recognition would probably suffice. This section is completely under utilized. Give the fans something to look forward to while they wait for this long off update. You could do a giveaway or a contest of some sort with a prize to the winner. A contest would get the community involved more rather than a random drawing of submitted names. 

Example fan art contest:

Members submit their best fan art privately to a gun email account. Gun chooses their top 3 and posts a poll with the 3 pieces displayed for the members to vote on. Winner gets prize. 

There's like a ton of contest ideas you could run with in addition to random drawings. Would like to see this section get some action in the near future.

That's a damn good idea Brig. Like you said, there wouldn't even need to be a tangible prize. Just something to get the community involved and working towards something.

They could test run the challenges that will eventually be at the bottom of their web site, or toss a daily thing up. Between steam, PS4, xbone. Number of dead counselors in one day, who wins.  Number of escapes in a week.I hope that someone sees this thread, @ShiftySamurai, I mean now would be a good time to do any of the OP's suggestions.

edit - why can't I give him both a trophy, and a heart, @Brigadius deserves them both?

@Truth, thanks

I threw in another trophy, just for the hell of it. This is a great idea.

I still don't get why they even made this section if they weren't going to use it... This is a very underutilized tool that the devs have to keep people playing. A charity event and pc giveaway do not count as an official contest or challenge...

I'm sure they would get a decent influx of players if they would just do something here.

Yeah all there has been is a streaming charity event and a PC giveaway. Neither really creates community interaction. Giveaways are good and all but I would like to see something that gets the community involved. In game competition, forum contest, something.

I was told every bit they put into the current servers will take time away from PROGRAMMING the NEW servers or something like that. I thought they were gonna beta test some new stuff , like wheelchair guy, but I guess that's not happening . As far as CONTEST go , it's a GREAT idea, the company probably WON'T sponser that sort of thing BUT , YOU can. No prizes needed, F13 swag maybe. You could print out pics from F13. You can make F13 keychains or something like that , I suppose. Like the F13 mask /display callege we have going on an art challenge may be doable , BUT  if it involves a developer , I don't think they 'll do it. Great idea , I personally , at 48 ,  have lots of ideas for the devs and use the forum here at F13 the game , to tell them to devs and everyone. I don't need a prize , just a ever improving game on dedicated servers . How about they make a DLC level where Jason Goes To Hell ? Gotta go get free avitar the devs just added but Remember to press that photo button to take SCREENSHOTS of your F13 game and POST them here.

The point is they made a section specifically for "official" contests and have not utilized that tool in their arsenal. This could have been huge for getting new players and keeping people involved. Instead it's just been ignored...

Maybe not so much getting new players but keeping their current players. The current strategy is "population getting low let's have a sale". Probably keep some people interested and playing and have to have less sales to up the player base if they kept the base interested with contests, competitions, giveaways, etc.

Just noticed this thread! I think @Brigadius's idea is very good, I'm sure there is quite a few arty people on the forum that would like to take part in a contest. As you say, could be fan art, perhaps your own Jason costume design or something for people not good with the drawing side of art. I think you could get a lot of entries if the contest were 'design a themed dlc clothing outfit for your preferred counselor' - particularly the current ones that miss out: shelly, fox, mitch. Etc Etc...

Apparently there is a tournament set up on Facebook called the "Counselor Conquest" (I think), which will include @malloymk, @hu_soldier13, @Shadesofjoe, and myself, along with some of our friends who frequently play (with  @Vaderspupil and @ikarikh ready to fill in for any missing players).  We are under "The Scream Team".  Hope it ends up being fun.

Maybe now...?

http://forum.f13game.com/topic/12-official-contests-gun-media-sponsored/

"We're incredibly far away from anything happening in this area of the forum, but we want you guys to be aware that we're going to be doing quite a bit of things to engage with you guys; from devs vs fans to just about anything fun we can think of. Prizes, glory and lots and lots of trash-talk are going to happen here!

Be on the lookout in the coming months!"

 

It's been a few months now... What's going on @GunMedia_Ben? Are you guys just waiting for the new engine before this section gets some attention?
