Another ABC - Would You Be Interested?


#1

Ok. So first off, since we haven’t had one of these in years, a lot of you are asking, “What’s an ABC?”

ABC stands for Avatar Battle Challenge. Essentially, a theme is given, and avatar-makers all over IMM submit avatars (up to one still and one animated per entrant.) A Panel of judges decides which ones are best, and prizes are awarded. Mostly it’s a lot of fun because you get to see a bunch of really cool avatars.

To see this in practice, here are the judging threads of the previous ABC’s:

ABC #15 - Mai
ABC #14 - Urien
ABC #13 - MSPaint
ABC #12 - T and A, and S R K
ABC #11 - Retro
ABC X - Fuckachunkz/Guilty Gear/Technology
ABC #9 - Time
ABC #8 - Rock n’ Roll
ABC #7 - Food
ABC #6 - Weapons (w/ a Soul Calibur Bonus)
ABC #5 - Street Fighter
ABC #4 - Darkstalkers
ABC #3 - Sprite Commercials
ABC #2 - Booty/Boobies, Sprites, & SRK
ABC #1 - Trial & Error

Since we’re a bout to get a bunch of new people, I thought it might be worthwhile to revive ABCs, and try to get IMM hopping a bit again. But I can’t do it without you. I’m not going to hold a contest just for Worthless and shatterstar to enter. There’s no fun in an ABC unless a lot of people enter.

So what do you say?

…seriously.


#2

Definitely.I’d totally enter.

It would be cool to do one of these again.It really brings out some of the best av makers and styles on IMM. :tup:


#3

I call judge

Also, stfu ho-jo.

<3


#4

Iunno man. Your current avatar makes me want to reevaluate if you have the avatar discernment to be a good judge.

…seriously.


#5

definitely. :tup:


#6

psh, whatever distorted image avatar man

quiche is gunna make me a judge! :arazz:


#7

If ho-jon is made a judge over me, i’m goign to quit SRK.

Or sulk in a corner.

Either one.

EDIT: Also, “going”.


#8

As the winner of the forgotten ABC. . .YES


#9

Oh right i forgot about the ABC that paper tiger posted the thread for. Updating.

…seriously.


#10

I’ll participate.


#11

I’ll enter if I don’t have to submit an animated avatar. Also, ignore my lack of an avatar, I’m just too lazy to make one atm.

EDIT: I’ll join regardless, it’ll be fun to learn some animation.


#12

Yo, that would be awesome to watch. I love just checking up on the the Big Request Thread, just to see the new avs. Shoot, I’ve even held little prize contests to see if any1 would bite. And, I think that all the avs I’ve gotten from here have been awesome.

Of course, I won’t be submitting an av, but I would love to see the results.

Shoot, I’d even pitch in for some kind of Premium prize for the winner.

:tup: :tup:


#13

yeah i’d join for the good ol times :lovin:


#14

since I’ve never won an ABC [I think I second or third in stills] so I’ll still be a contestant untill I win.

I want to submit a theme: anything with Mike Bison and Dudley in it…

or Food part 2 [you know, Combos + Felicia].


#15

The food theme was my favorite. People got really creative with it. The Time one was also cool, but I got kind burned on doing non-fighting game themes after getting like zero entrants for the Rock and Roll themed one.

Food part 2 is a possibility. That one was fun as fuck.

…seriously.


#16

Seems like more of coincidence you should bring this up so close to the release of Street Fighter IV.

Meaning, I think we have a theme.


#17

NO SPRITES ZOMGWTFUCKACHUNKZ

…seriously.


#18

If this goes down I wanna be a judge


#19

If that limits you, then that makes me cry :sad:

How bout, characters that did not get into SFIV, and their thoughts.


#20

You know I have no limits.

That’s an interesting new idea, but it might be a little too specific to let creativity flourish.

…seriously.

P.S.: This poll is running for another 19 days, so there’s plenty of time to consider.
