[Finished]CC Monthly Series [February 2016] (ENTRIES CLOSED | JUDGING)


Flash Flyer - Sakura

Recommended Posts

Refer to this thread for any specific information regarding the policies of the CC Monthly. 
 
Theme
 
Because this month marks my 7th year on YCM (anniversary actually passed three days ago), the task this time will be:

 

Make a Level/Rank 7 monster
 
Aside from the above, the rest of the card's design is left up to you. 
Make sure that you use realistic Types/Attributes, stats and above all, good card design while creating your card.

Deadline
 
February 23rd, 2016 @ 11:59 pm Hawaiʻi Standard Time (GMT -10:00)

If you need help determining what time it'll be in your area when deadline hits, use this converter.
(Select USA - Hawaii - Honolulu in the "convert to" area)
 
For your safety, I highly recommend that you turn in your entries when it reaches 11:59 pm in your respective timezones to avoid confusion.

I will assume most, if not all of you, live to the right of me so you should not have any timezone issues.
 
Entry Fee
 
None, you just need to state your interest + provide an entry card by deadline.
 
Rules
 
1. Standard YCM and Custom Cards rules apply in this section. Please remember to abide by / follow them in this contest. 
 
2. Written Cards will be accepted, however if you opt to do this; do not use the cardmaker to generate a picture-less image. Just type it out in text format. 
 
3. When posting a card, make sure that you have its lore posted beneath, so it is easier for the judges to read your effect. Also make sure that you post it properly using the cardmaker (or other image hosts you may use).
 
4. You are allowed to make edits to your card before the deadline, but not outright change the card. Effect changes, OCG fixes and so forth are permissible.
 
5. The usage of Fake Types / Attributes, as well as DIVINE, Divine-Beast and Creator God is expressly forbidden.
You are expected to design a card that adheres to the current standards set by Konami (usage of the existing 23 legal Types + 6 Attributes).
 
Remember to abide by the max. 5000 ATK/DEF rules for original stats (although you shouldn't approach this limit as these are L/R 7s)

 

6. For design purposes, do not make clones of the Dragon Rulers.
 
Prizing
 
1st - 4000 points + 3 reps + membership in custom group for a month.
2nd - 3000 points + 2 reps
3rd - 2000 points + 1 rep

4th - 1000 points

 

Winners will also be awarded points in YGO 2099 based on your final score (however, these can be converted to regular YCM points or other things if you do not participate in the format).

 

Additional prizes may be given out, if needed. 

Prizes listed here are subject to change, depending on number of entries and their quality.

Judges

  2. (vacant)

I will accept up to 2 members to help with the judging.

 

Please make sure you are competent enough to know what you're doing + be willing to use the standardized rubric (for the purpose of making the scores easier to compare/calculate). If you need to make some adjustments, please notify me ahead of time.

 

Scoring
 
I have revised the rubric somewhat after the January tournament, so I will be posting it here so you can see it.

(These changes will be noted in the information thread)

 

[spoiler=February 2016 rubric]

 

Balance and Design - 65

  • BALANCE: Is this card reasonably designed, so it doesn't cause broken loops and the like? [35]
  • DESIGN: Does this card stand out from others that do similar things? Do we have a reason to run this over its closest competitor? [30]

Creativity - 20

  • How creative were you in designing this card? Did you blatantly copy+paste an existing card's effect, or designed something original? [15]
  • Are you using proper Types / Attribute / realistic stats (or otherwise followed the prompt correctly)? This is a freebie if you did things correctly. [5]

OCG/Grammar - 15

 

Make sure you use grammar found on actual TCG/OCG cards AND proper spelling/grammar so we can understand what you're saying.

  • Comprehension of the effect [8]
  • OCG/standard grammar [7]

You are advised to write your effects in PSCT, but using the 5D's era style is perfectly acceptable.

 

[spoiler=Explanation on the OCG breakdown]

You are graded with respect to the latest versions of said PSCT (if available). However, if there is a discrepancy between the same type of effects (or a proper PSCT writing of it has not been done), you will not get docked points. Konami has a habit of changing their words from time to time, so it may be difficult to pinpoint the exact form you need. Basically, make sure you write cards using syntax that exists on actual cards and you'll be fine (do NOT use the lores from anime/manga cards).

 

You may refer to Zazu's OCG guide in the Advanced forum for an idea of correct wording (though be warned that it may not be completely updated, but it should be sufficiently enough for your purposes).

 

Regardless if your primary language is English or not, make sure you check your work for any spelling/grammatical errors before turning your cards in.

 

Both parts are interconnected, so if you have bad grammar (both standard English and card), then it will affect comprehension and vice versa. Particularly, if we can't understand how the card works, it may result in a reduced score in the other two areas of judging (because the card may be interpreted as doing one thing, but you wanted it to do something else).

 

 

 

 

 

------
If you have any questions, either post in this thread or send me a PM. 
 
Best of luck to all participants.

Star Gate Magician

******* Level 7

DARK / Spellcaster / Pendulum

3/3

Pendulum Effect: If you have a card in your other Pendulum Zone: You can target 1 Level 5 or higher Pendulum Monster in your Graveyard, except "Star Gate Magician"; destroy this card, and if you do, place that monster in your Pendulum Zone.

 

Monster Effect: When this card is Pendulum Summoned: You can target 1 Spell Card in your Graveyard; Set it to your side of the field, but banish it when it leaves the field. That card cannot be activated until the end of this turn. You can only use this effect of "Star Gate Magician" once per turn.

I'm down! Let's do it!

 

Edit 2/11/16: Tweaked OCG, mechanics are exactly the same.

 

[spoiler=Entry]sV90Tzl.jpg
2 Lvl. 7 Non-Pendulum monsters
If a monster(s) would be Special Summoned from the face-up Extra Deck, or a Pendulum card(s), or the effect(s) of a Pendulum card(s), would activate on the Field: You can detach 1 Xyz Material; negate the activation or Summoning, and if you do, banish it. This card is unaffected by the effects of a monster Special Summoned from the Extra Deck, using a Pendulum monster(s) as a Material for its Summoning. You may only control 1 "Seismic Flare Dragon".

Edits:

  • Made parentheses in Battle Phase effect from "while in the Banished Zone" to "while banished" since I learned Banished Zone is not an official term.
  • Corrected capitalization next to 1st colon.
