Cherry Blossom Screenshot Contest [Winners Announced]

187 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

 

Just wow. I read the comments on the results before I even looked at which ones were picked to be the winners and you are so right. Those "winning screenshots" are so meh. There were so many people who had gorgeous screenshots out there.

Don't mean to dis but like, what?! That Rumplebottom screenshot has got to be the laziest of them all. Just stand behind your character and press print screen in a random location, and the tree even looked like just another random tree in the fall, I would have never assumed it was even a Cherry Blossom tree without knowing it because of the theme.

There's NO WAY they took the time looking through all the submissions, and for the people who actually put in effort it was a complete waste of time. Definitely disappointed in this competition for sure, won't be participating in another one. Even if I didn't win, there were so many more who deserved it versus the ones that were chosen. >_>

Hi Rumplebottom here. I was surprised they picked that one as well, i wanna know why tbh cause i had alot better pics taken.

 

alas I thank you for the win. I was really hoping to.

@CM_Aethon 

Is there a way to adjust what screenshots I personally see when the patch comes through that puts the winners up? Like what file folder would that be in? I want to use the ones I liked instead.

I was really hoping this one would have gotten something. I didn't care if I didn't win anything myself and nor do I even know the person who took this one but found it to be well shaded and something showing the beauty of BDO. Grats to the winners though!

Thank you! :$

I also was shocked that some gorgeous screenshots other people posted did not win.

I think they must have chosen four at random, but who knows    ?????

you had the only actually nice "dirt road" picture :)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Honestly I feel like everybody should've gotten the cherry blossom earrings as a reward for entering, or something, so all that effort doesn't feel completely unappreciated.  

 

I just want to feel like I didn't waste hours taking screenshots for this disappointing contest.

These screen shots do not compare to the ones I've seen, RNG winners definitely.

OH boy, I can feel the laziness from the admins, if you just look up the hashtags they were so many prettier ones, from different angles through different filters and in higher quality and resolution, feeling sorry for those who actually made the effort to participate in this event.

If they don't care about the contest then they shouldn't hold one -___-
This was so stupid, disapointing and disrespectful to people that spent a lot of time and effort trying to find the right place, angle, filter, light, time of the day...etc

I myself took a lot of time on this and after browsing twitter/FB wasn't sure I even stood a chance becouse there were so many beautiful posts.
After seeing the winners? I laughed cause it was such a joke! 

There are some of my entries...

The last two are more experimental...blossoms in background and focus on characters.

I know them feelz. =( Btw, your 2nd one is so gorgeous! I remember seeing that before I even took mine and it reminded me of a fairy-tale painting.

The ones below were my boyfriends favorites of the ones I took. I spent at least a few hours running back and forth to places waiting for the lighting I wanted and everything. In this one, I specifically waiting for a ship and a bird to be in position before I took it. Such a slap in the face from the admins to everyone who put in all that effort. >_>

It's starting to feel like the admins are ignoring us, I asked a perfectly reasonable question about my personal ability to change the loading screen pictures, and there is total silence on their side.

 

I suppose if they didn't care about the contest, they wouldn't bother to care what we thought of it either.

I've stopped taking part in these competitions so right now I'm an independent critic :P. I also have a feeling that they picked screenshots using some kind of RNG method. I don't have intention to offend anyone, but in my honest opinion that among top 4 only Sier's picture is a solid winner.

<deleted> Edit: Pffff... I take back the request. No need anymore.

I am appalled and disappointed. Not by the winners, but by the responses to the entries that have won, the comments are outright rude and unnecessary.

I do feel as though it'd be better if every participant was awarded a small gift for entering, but congrats to those that have won. It's a community event and the comments couldn't be less congratulatory or supportive.

Exactly same for me, i was trying to take pictures when there was semi-dark in the day and lightning, and another picture where  i  was sitting in a blossom tree, but most of the trees make you jump through them when u try,  i  finally found a tree  i  could sit on, up at the arena in Heidel, got knocked down a few times at the arena trying to get to the tree xD I love your second picture!blossom3.thumb.jpg.b6c80a1de22d5fd2332bd

There were so many beautiful shots submitted, demonstrating a great eye (composition) and a meaningful time investment. Anyway, congrats to the winners.

wow, whats the point of even trying? Lol the admins don't even try. It's literally RNG; there are a plethora of better ones out there, besides mine there are so many actually nice ones, not to bash the winners, but I'm sure even they posted others that were better like rumplebottom did. Oh well, rng is rng

Your ranger is so well done! Are you open to sharing her creation? 

If not, I totally respect that. I'm just in awe :o That's the best looking character I've seen in BDO
