    You must reside in one of the participating countries to be eligible to win.

    RIP :'(
  • how do you submit an entry?

    also for like public domain music, is it alright if you add a credit at the end of the video?(some sites require the music site credited when you use it.)
  • You must reside in one of the participating countries to be eligible to win.

    Kinda dick move to a pretty major part of your player base, especially that those contests did work in more countries in the past. Oh well.

    As long as you play by the music creator's rules, you should be good!

    The majority of our player base resides in the countries above, and unfortunately the past ones weren't ran exactly they way they should have been and we've been cracking down on legal rules for things like this.

    I know it sucks and I wish I could include everyone, but at the very least I am trying to alternate between in-game prizing (everyone is included) and physical (restricted). :frowning:

    I am sure they are trying their best to include as many people from as many different countries as possible. Unfortunately, I can see the laws and cultural differences of each country can making this difficult. Such is the world we live in. :)

    I think you are doing a good job Raziel. Keep it up. :)

    Oh and Raz.... very clever putting the different language versions of the rules in The vault.

    I dont blame you since you probably have no say about this stuff but nexon seems to be one of only a few companies that have problems with those type of contests.

    I honestly dont know which law stops you from sending 1 mouse to spain/russia/australia or any other country.

    The sad thing is that a ton of people will never have a chance at Branded Logitech G303 Mouse or something branded with dirty bomb logo because those are always limited for certain countries for whatever reasons. I was kinda happy when i seen this thread but when i saw i cant even participate i just got salty.

    Other, smaller, companies can deal with those laws and cultural differences, not really sure why nexon cannot.

    Maybe rename it to Epic Bugs and people can make montages of not reloading properly or throwing nades and watching them disappear. I can already imagine some awesome Fletcher footage considering how broken he is right now.
  • If the Hotline Miami soundtrack is fair game, there should be significantly fewer music issues. That stuff's gold.

    Glad to see someone is keeping a positive attitude around here...

    At first I was a little dirty (heh) about not being able to enter but after watching previous winners... well... I can't pull that kind of thing off (reliably (*sigh* not even close lol)) and thats without even considering bad ass video editing skills (none) lol.

    Good luck to those that enter and I look forward to pretending I'm you when I watch your videos ;)

    Damn these old montages make me wish the old objective markers could be toggle-able on until SD makes them properly transparent.

    They probably do. I think it stinks that the world is like that but that is the reality... for now.
    Luckily Raziel is at least trying to alternate things so every one has a chance for something at some time.

    I honestly feel she cares about us the players. She has been there herself. She is going to do what she can within the rules and laws of society.

    Besides all that this is supposed to be fun. FUN!

    Just because you are ineligible to enter does not mean you must remove yourself completely from having fun with it. if you have friends in other eligible countries trying to enter, cheer them on. Or suggest some of your friends in other eligible countries to try to enter. Who knows what can happen.

    The point though is to have fun with this. :smile:

    Who will decide the Skill Part? People who play on your Stream and can barely walk straight or just do Jumpy Jumpy Moves?
  • Again, I understand everyone's frustrations about rules, but due to local laws that is just how it's has to be for now. I cannot verify how other companies do their rules. I am trying with every contest to include more people and give things out in different ways. :smile:

    As someone who used to work for ESL as a game lead and head admin, used to run high level Dirty Bomb competitions, and constantly hangs around higher level players, I know how to differentiate skill (or at least I like to think I do). The way we play on stream is no where near what most of us play like off stream as well. :smile: But yes, myself, a couple people at Nexon, and a few at Splash Damage will all judge this contest together. It's not just about skill, that's only 50% of it. A good and creative montage can compete as well! I am pretty excited overall to see the videos that come in.
