Also please note that costume contest judging is subjective and everyone's tastes are different. Please be kind to our GM's who volunteer their time to keep these servers running as smooth as possible. If you have any issues, please contact me here or on discord!

Will the Praetorian special costume contest be moved to a different date or will there be two back-to-back Homecoming Contests?

Praetorians can enter the zone through the use of the TUNNEL System, through the Long Range Teleporter during the event or through the Pocket D manhole on the western edge of the Magisterium neighborhood at (-3975.4, 33.9, -196.3) and then through the van on the Hero side.

Right. But:
 

  • Saturday, October 17th¬†-¬†9PM UTC
    • Theme: Praetorians (Special!¬†2-player team contest. Come dressed as the primal and praetorian versions of your original character)

 

 

But what?

He's saying the original plan was to do that praetorian theme. Looks more like either the incognito one is the official or they're scheduling two contests on the same day/time.

You gave me directions for how a Praetorian can get to a costume contest.

 

I'm asking about the Praetorian Costume Contest that the Devs scheduled for October 17th, which is distinct from the Incognito Contest the devs scheduled for October 16th.

 

Which I presume they'll make into another contest later on, but wanted clarification.

Where is this event they are discussing? The link was to an event in February. 

 

Edit: Ah now I see, after actually clicking the link lol ūüėÜ.

 

Yeah that's probably an oversight, good catch!

To clarify, the theme has been revised as described in this thread, replacing the previously announced Praetorians theme. The October 17th date was incorrect in the February post.

 

Saturday, October 16th is the correct date for the Fall contest.

No, bios will not be part of the judging. We would love to incorporate those types of things, but to complete the judging in a timely manner it unfortunately isn’t feasible.

 

For this contest you should be able to ‚Äúsee through‚ÄĚ the disguise based on visual clues from the costume alone.

So, out of curiosity, what kind of costume manipulation are we talking about? I've always wanted to be able to hand-edit .costume files to get the exact colors I wanted.
