~ ZEJ Statistical Contest ~ About time. In an effort to revitalize the statistical facet of the community, I shall bring forth the (hopefully) recurring series of Statistical Contests that were once run on here. The system here is simple. First, a main theme or central guideline to follow will be given--this is, obviously, the most important to keep in mind when it comes down to developing the profile (and in turn, the character). All profile entries are to be sent to me by PM before the given deadline, and once that happens, no further edits are allowed to be made. The actual contest results along with the profiles themselves will be posted on this thread, of course. If one wishes to participate, it is preferable to notify me either here, via PM, or in IRC, but it is not really necessary--I will have to get the profile, in any case. Aaand, without further ado, onto the contest itself. Iteration 1: The Pacifist The theme will be "The Pacifist". It is to be a character who does NOT have a particularly prominent focus on the actual battle, but uses other tactics to be resourceful to the group as a whole. "Support", and "Healer"-Classes should immediately come to mind here, no? The prospect of this theme is not necessarily a build which has zero involvement in combat and is completely dedicated to aiding allies--so as long as actual battling is not the primary asset of this character, anyone is free to make anything fitting to that theme. In that way, a "Field" or a "Resource"-Class can qualify for this theme. And, lastly, the final pointers: 1. The Meta: Remember, this is a very, VERY important part of the profile. I am not judging the character, I am judging how well it is constructed from a statistical perspective. No particular meta is restricted for this Iteration, but keep in mind that if you are adding a separate mechanic attached to the character, it must resonate with the theme at hand. Even then, try to not get carried away. 2. The Level: Anywhere from 1 to 10. I am giving freedom of choice solely to allow people to get as many resources they are comfortable with having and spending wisely. That said, the character's Level does NOT matter in the slightest in the judging process, just how you use said Level's range of resources. An excellently-made Level 1 profile will definitely outrank a flawed Level 10, just to give an example. 3. The Deadline: 10 days, precisely. Acceptance of entries closes on the 13th, and hopefully the results will be up that very same day. This date is subject to change if people need the time, but it should not exactly be a problem, to be honest. Feel free to insert some sort of closing statement here, if you will.
