    Creativity Contest
    Design the next NeoAvalon Unit: Gwenevere!


    [​IMG]

    Summoners,

    Brave Frontier RPG has always been an evolving experience not only shaped for you, our awesome community, but also shaped by your desires! Today, we'd like to make one of them come true!

    We never cease to be delighted by your dedication and motivation, and to thank you for your support and passion throughout 2016, we're launching our most ambitious contest yet!

    It's been a while since we've challenged your creativity, so we're back in full force with a very special idea: design from the ground-up a Unit's Artwork, Lore & Skills to be included in our NeoAvalon series! All you'll need to work with is her name, Gwenevere!

    Don't miss your chance to help us create a Unit that will make it into the game and get your hands on extraordinary rewards! Keep reading for all details!



    Preface

    Before we begin, allow us to share the story that inspired us to launch this contest!

    At the very end of Summer, a very unusual package found its way to our office in Paris. Imagine our surprise when we saw it contained nothing less than a complete fanmade Unit Series, printed and sorted in 6 folders, sent to us directly from Sweden!

    [​IMG]

    This absolutely stunning creation had it all, from the 4 evolutions artworks for 6 characters to their detailed lore, stats, skills, and even fusion/summon comments! It was all there, accompanied by a very heartfelt letter by 2 passionate fans, Rasmus (BFRPG Name: Ace Cardo, Forum: @Sky Knight Zazamus) & Samuel (BFRPG Name: Clown).

    • When asked about what inspired them, they replied:
    "Both of us started playing after the 1st Brave Frontier RPG Anniversary, and shared a common interest into the game. We really adore looking at all the sick fanart and of course the official art! So with all these cool artworks from the European/Global/Japan servers as inspiration, we took our Summer vacation to start this project, and became really proud and satisfied of the result. Still, we're already working on a follow-up batch!"

    [​IMG]

    We can't thank them enough for taking the time to craft all of this and send it to us.

    Over the years, just like them, a lot of our fans have made countless suggestions, posted many ideas and went as far as to create their own Brave Frontier RPG characters, lore, fan fiction, and much more, obviously leading to the fabled question: "Can it be released in the game?"

    With NeoAvalon Season 2, we believe we've come up with the best opportunity to grant that wish and release the first Unit entirely crafted by our fans. Just like Rasmus and Samuel did, we can't wait for you all to surprise us!



    Creativity Contest | Design Gwenevere
    Contest dates: December 16 2016, 17:00 CET to January 8 2017, 23:59 CET.

    Gwenevere is the next female character for the NeoAvalon series, to be released with a Dream Evolution. In this creativity contest, we're letting our fans design her from the ground up!



    • Do what you do best!

    You can only submit ONE ENTRY per Category! Take your time to give us your best idea!

    Categories are all detailed at the bottom of this article, so keep reading!



    • Get awesome rewards!

    There will be separate winners and rewards for each of the 3 Categories (Artwork, Lore and Skills).

    When the contest is over, #1 winning entries for each Category will be combined to create the final Gwenevere Unit, releasing in Early 2017!

    Last but not least, while the contest is ongoing, we'll even send a Gem to all players every time we're impressed by someone's entry, so give it your all!

    Disclaimer

    gumi Europe reserves the right to modify any #1 winning entry for obvious necessities such as game integration, technical limitations, meta balancing or other reasons. However, our main goal is to remain as faithful as possible to your designs so they still represent your intentions when they are brought to life in-game.

    Should we not find a satisfying winner for any, if not all Categories, for any reason such as a lack of participants, our team will take it upon itself to complete all work on Gwenevere as we'd do for our other Units.​



    We hope you'll enjoy this contest, Summoners!

    We know we're very excited to see and read your creations, as always! Thank you for being so passionate about Brave Frontier RPG!

    Good luck to all participants!

    @gumi Elie, so if I have understand correctly, I don't have to give a name to the leader skill/extra skill and various abilities? And even if i name them all, the names won't be taken in account as for the fusion/evolution text in the lore contest?

    Give me Aymarks Dream Evolution plzplzplz
    It can be taken in account if relevant :)

    Also, as I'm part of the judging team, I want to add that it will be better if the power level of your unit match the EU meta (let's say for this winter).

    You can also add some notes to justify your choices, for example utility in whatever mode or connection with your created lore.

    Small advice : try to get away from the existing Neo Avalon units. It's fine if your Gwenevere share some skills (it will be unavoidable) but don't forget to give her an identity among these units.

    Good luck summoners ! May the creativity be with you !

    Yo, im still making my Lore, but in it i wanted to consider the presence of Lancelot (and i wanted to consider him a water unit for a tri elemental BB). Is that all right or...? I mean, not like she only works with Lancelot as a unit (my first try was That, but i edited it), it is just a way to put him somewhere, cause in the Camelot Arc (the real one) Lancelot is way too important.

    Well, reading the participation thread really makes me think nobody has an idea what balance is.

    Edit: ♥♥♥♥ balance. Arthur & Lancelot DEs clearly don't care about them.

    Question, can i add "what will happen in the future" to the lore part? Which itself is not a lore, but a short notes of "possibly story" that will happen in the future in our current Neo Avalon chapter.

    I dont think saying this is gonna be worth any cents but it means the world for me.

    I sooooo totaly wish Gwenevere will get a design MUCH alike SOPHITIA from soul calibur 4 with BB ability 0 atk with BB per turn and mitigation and status immune. And SBB with 40 atacks - add all elements + elemental damage and + atk for elements

    and SP enhancements with no emphasis on def, mitigation or survival. Just emphasis on sbb and bb
