I suppose that nobody thought that the 4th DYOM contest was starting today! We already knew the next theme, exciting story line, because that was one of the winning themes in this poll. I changed the rules a bit. We will now make it a real competition! 1 versus 1! Read further for more information.
The goal of the contest is off course to create the best storyline using "Design your own mission". Things to keep in mind are originality, playability and difficulty. You should challenge the players of your mission, but they should not get frustrated. If your missions are ready, you should upload it to our mission upload site.
In this edition the theme is: exciting story line. Be creative, but use this specific theme. We are curious about what you make up! The maximum amount of missions in a storyline is 8.
Like I said, it will be a bit different. Since there are a lot of missions, because the theme is a storyline, you don't have to choose between all the storylines. There are several rounds, depending on the amount of submissions. The voters have to choose betwen two storylines, the winner wil continue to the next round. For example:
Storyline 1 vs storyline 2
Storyline 3 vs storyline 4
Storyline 5 vs storyline 6
Storyline 7 vs storyline 8
Storyline 1/3/5/7 won these battles. The next round is:
Storyline 1 vs storyline 3
Storyline 5 vs storyline 7
When 1 and 5 won these battles, the big final is Storyline 1 vs storyline 5.
It can also happen that there are more than two storylines in one battle. Only the winner of that battle will continue.
You will get some more time, because it is not only one mission, but a storyline (max 8 missions). The deadline for the submission of storylines is: 11 December
You can submit a storyline for the contest by uploading it to the mission download site and post the following information in this topic:
[b]Link to the mission(s):[/b]
Everybody can submit two storylines, when you submit more than two, only the last two will compete. It isn't allowed to submit a storyline you already made, since you could have a lot of comments on it already, and that isn't fair for the competition.
The most important reward for everybody that enters the contest is off course that you can claim to be a GTA mission designer. The winning storyline will placed in the Wall of Fame!
Good luck, and, above all, have fun!
