    Welcome to the 2016 No Limits 2 CoasterCrazy and NoLimits Exchange Tournament hosted by CoasterCrazy.

    https://gyazo.com/c1db943354a0aef694f2f5c3c51b0be6


    So what exactly is the NL2 Tournament?


    The 2016 CoasterCrazy No Limits 2 Tournament is a contest that is consisted of three rounds hosted by CoasterCrazy. To make it to the next round you must use your skills and creativity to pass the previous round. The catch is that only a few people make it to each round. There will be deadlines and curveballs thrown at you during this contest. Only the best of the best make it to the final round and only 1 will be announced a winner.


    How do I enter?
    You enter by typing "I'm in" on this thread. Your username will then be added to a list of other users who have also entered.


    Can I drop out?
    Of course you can. Just know that each round is designed with that certain number of people. If a person drops out there may be extra or less work on the others he/she is competing against.


    How do I submit my entry?
    You will submit your entry via email. The email that you will send it to will be released at a later date.


    When does the contest start?
    The contest starts Monday, February 22nd. 2 weeks from today.


    What is the prize?
    The winner will receive an actual coaster wheel, tons of points donated to your coastercrazy account (if you have one), a write up discussing your amazing effort in the competition that will be posted to the homepage on CC, and bragging rights.


    I think that is it, am I missing something?
    There will be 3/4 judges to judge each coaster. That way it will be in no way biased towards anyone. This is a challenging contest but will be fun for everyone. This contest will also be posted on CoasterCrazy as well as the hosting site. There will be dead time in between each round for the judges to judge the submissions as well as decide who is moving forward and who is not (this dead time will be about 2 weeks).


    What are the submission dates?
    All submission must be due by Midnight EST.


    Feb 22nd-March 9th (First Round)
    March 21st- April 6th (Second Round)
    April 11th- 25th (Final Round)
    Judging ends May 1st

    *Submission dates are subject to change if needed.



    Well that sums it up!

    If you are interested in joining and have any more questions feel free to ask on this thread and I will do my best to answer them! Let the games begin!

    Of course! Since the contest is hosted by coastercrazy, We had to come up with a ride and picture that was posted on that site as well as a ride that was on this site as well. X: Reborn came to mind first!



    All names have been added to the contestant list so far, If I missed you please let me know!



    If you have not signed up, what are you waiting for!? Do YOU have what it takes!? Be sure to join now!

    • CommentAuthorBlaseRhine

    There actually will be no templates... yep, you heard right... none. There will however be many restrictions as well as "curveballs" during the tournament. Trust me... It will be challenging. I have already done the tournament to make sure each challenge does work and have given myself time restraints similar to what you all will have.

    Can I be in and make a really rough 6 ring Chinese Knockoff coaster like a Hebei Zhongye Metallurgical Equipment Manufacturing Co., Ltd coaster? I can make the roughest and most painful knockoff 4 bad coaster with many rings.

    Added you to the list!



    Also, CKidd on CC asked this question...

    "So, what happens if the person who wins has an account for the other site, and not here, how do they receive points? What if we have accounts here and not there, how can we see what the other competitors have made? I'm just curious how this cross site thing will work."



    Just to clarify this is what I responded back.

    "The results will be posted on each site. We luckily have a mod that works on both sites and can manage that for us. Since the tournament is hosted by CC if they do not have a CC account they have the option to make one or opt out of receiving the points (Not sure the exact number yet- depends on how many people end up submitting and such. It will be more than I have ever given out though so over 10,000 points). The write up will happen on both sites (CC will have a homepage write up) as well as Social media and on each thread.

    At this time the way the tournament is set up, you will not view other peoples submissions however if you have a question on judging then we will be more than happy to send you the track files along with a discussion on why this track has won over yours. The judging to move on for each round will consist of a list of who is moving on as well as pictures of the coasters and a very brief write up discussing the track and the scoring. Hope this helps!


    We are also discussing the idea of getting an actual trophy... However we are not sure if this will be the case due to the fact of cost/shipping/etc. "

    BTW, it's usually best to seek approval before running a contest here, especially if it could be used as advertising for another site lol. It's just one of our site rules. Seeing that you have a great start here we won't interfere. :)

    While the points gift would work on CC, it would be nice to see a more neutral reward for everyone involved. That said, you have an amazing list of participants - I'm interested to see where this goes! So two things:

    1. Run by us next time.
    2. We don't allow advertising, so don't lower a great contest to that level.

    Thanks!!

    Just for you all to know, first off my apologies for hosting the contest without double checking... Still a bit new to the site so I am still learning all the rules and all that fun stuff. I spoke with AJ (whispered him) about the contest and the tournament is all clear. So the tournament is still going on!


    The first round begins February 22nd! Be sure to sign up if you haven't already!
  9.  
    I mean it's not a big deal really, we just want to have things cleared by first so we don't get drowned in contests like last time. And if we had hundreds of them requiring registration on a variety of websites, what's the point?

    Yours is fine, it's just a matter of staying on top of things.

    I think this is a little unfair. Basically, if you win and want the recieve a prize, you have no choice but to register an account somewhere else. Sure, they prize isn't the be all and end all, but it is a nice little bonus.

    Could you not think of something else that both sites could benefit from?

    I was speaking with Oscar, the site owner, about the possibility of the winner actually receive a trophy for their efforts. I agree that I need to find something good for both sites, so right now the trophy is a good idea. We are discussing costs right now. I will keep you all updated on that. It should be no problem...

    51 contestants so far! Wow! What a turn out!

    As I stated, I am in the process of finding a better prize that is both site friendly. Right now, we are looking at costs for an actually trophy/coaster memorabilia. I will keep you all updated on that aspect of the tournament!


    Can we get 60 contestants by the start of the contest on the 22nd!? Join now!

    Yeah, doesn't need to be anything fancy or expensive, just something that someone who doesn't want to to register on another site can benefit from.
    • CommentAuthorBlaseRhine
    • CommentTimeFeb 11th 2016
     
    Yeah I am still currently thinking of ideas. Right now we are leaning more towards a trophy of sorts. We have emailed several companies regarding pricing and I just have to hear back from Oscar, CC site owner, about everything and then once we agree on something I will let everyone know. I can promise you it will be something really awesome! :)

    Maybe I need to drop out if school work gets to busy, But I think I am able to do that :)
