Anyone want a new Maxforums Tournament?
show user profile  mrgrotey
Hey guys, we havent had a tournament in a while. I'd be willing to host it again if people are ok with that? Is there a need for a new tourny? enough people wanting one?

If so does anyone have any ideas for good rounds? I will think of some myself but welcome any suggestions, if there are any particularly good ones I may well include them in the tourny :)

So whatcha think? to tourny or not to tourny? No point going through with it if there isnt really the interest in it at the moment.

By the way, if I host it I wont be promising a prize for the winner and then not sending it ;)

For those who dont know whatthe maxforums tournament is here is the last one I hosted, I cant seem to find the last two tournys, the guys who did then seem to have taken them offline.

Swamped at the mo, I can put the old one back up if needs be. I still have the prizes on my desk in parcels. Oppss!


If everyone around you is panicking and you are calm, perhaps you haven't fully grasped the situation

i always sat back and watched, disappointed with myself for never making an attempt! Lets do it! just for fun :)

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

I'd love to participate. I was really enjoying Jesse's 'thumb war' thread where he'd give us a sentence and we'd run with it. We could do that only take it into max..? just a suggestion.

"Mysterious wanderer from the north"

"Inefficient torture device"

"infected creature from the underworld"

er... something. just a thought. ;)

Although I'm busy, I'd love a tourney. Last time I tried out was the steampunk themed, and I didn't finish my vacuum cleaner model until months later. Hopefully this time I'll finish it.

As for a prize, perhaps a nice 3D model would be a good prize. Mr. Grotey, would you be willing to donate something off your Turbosquid account? Perhaps the low poly man as the grand prize? Just kidding. But seriously, we could make a pot of donations for the prize. I'd be willing to donate my Gothic Entrance which I've been working on:

I'm not sure if Mr. Grotey would go as far as donating his Bugatti, but I know I'd pee myself with joy if I were ever to get my hands on that model. But then again, we're talking about a $150 model, so maybe something less expensive would be appropriate.

[EDIT] As for a theme, I don't know... if we haven't done something along these lines already, we could go for horror. Make the creepiest, scariest, most haunting image you can come up with. No animations, still image only. Or we could do something different, for example "Flight", or something that involves water, or something comical. I'm curious to hear what others will suggest.

[EDIT2] I really like toldaddy's ideas for a theme. Very creative. Especially "inefficient torture device".

i'm not sure i would suggest models as a prize, the whole ip/permission to use it/give credit etc etc. business would be bothersome. I would strongly agree to say, a texture dvd or something as the prize. can't remember what for now but i remember one of the daves offering up their grunge texture dvd as the prize for something here....

I don't think anyone who participates is really looking to win anything. It seems MFT is about having some fun, and learning some max. No prizes necessary. But that's just me.

I agree, no prizes necessary, I was just trying to think of a good prize in case we decided to have one. Texture DVD, 3D model, anything is fine actually... I'm game just for the sport.

Nah there won't be a prize, there's no point, we haven't ever needed one, it's a bit of fun and that's all.

Not that much interest forming yet...

I really can't say whether or not I'm in until I actually see/read what it's all about. A lot of the themes have been rather uninspiring to me in the past, not by the fault of the author but simply because I've been doing "this" for a living for nearly 2 years now, so if I do choose to open up Max in my spare time, it usually has to be something that gets me uber psyched to work on.

Don't think of it as being for you Dave.
Think of all the young noobs and peeps who will learn so much from
watching you methodically tackle the challenge at tourny time.
You would be giving so much to so many.
You can do it Dave. You can be BIG!
Open max Dave, and open your heart to the world!
