25th to 32nd, ouch that hurts.

I went from 36th to 54th. Damn! Although I figured I be somewhere around that.

I feel your pain lolyoshi

Technically 25th place. Better than my previous best, at 27th. The 6 for aesthetics from Nimono is ??? but aside from that I'll take it.

because it looked nice, but not nice enough in my opinion to warrant a higher score on aesthetics
<Adam> I feel like smwc is a prostitute now, because we put up a porn ad for money
That's what you get when you ask for the results before they're even finalized. I'm glad worldpeace won though

According to my math ((36+34+35+32)/4-30-7) DaSpongeBobMan actually got a score of -2.75. While I can agree on rounding that up to 0, shouldn't he technically get a lower ranking than the other 0s?

I'll take it. It's just weird compared to how the other three weighed aesthetics

I should have something witty to put here (even if it's just to update dated info), shouldn't I?

Should be thrown out if his intention was to rank low.

Might be a bit weird to post it before the actual comments are posted but if anyone wants more detailed feedback, feel free to send me a message or something (though a lot of it might be "It was pretty good but there were better levels", specially considering this year we had a lot of simple grassland levels iirc).

Congrats to the winners!

His level wasn't bad, it just lost a lot of points due to being late and using some ASM. Might be worth considering that some of these 0s are actually/might be changed to DQs, though.

e: where's Koopster's level? I'm fairly sure he got last place (-60/60).
tbh I'm enjoying the schadenfreude of it being an eternally average level from the start, but because of everything he did to the level aftwerwards, he ended up losing the 30/60s he could have gotten

I guess aesthetics is just one of those things that is really subjective, just like all the categories. But especially easthetics, one judge might think a level looks amazing and deserves a 10, where another person might think it looks bland or unappealing and give is a 3 or 4, and it's pretty reasonable. Same reason that some people prefer one color over another; some people think bright pink looks amazing, while others simply dislike it. We can all agree somewhat when a level looks really ugly or really beautiful (i.e. impetus/trs) though.

Yeah I feel bad for spongebob, but at least when raocow plays it in the first world everyone's gonna be praising it for not deserving to be there :P
I may not be Top 30, but 35th place is F#%$ing Amazing!

I'm actually really glad with this result #tb{:DD}


EDIT: Oh, I would've scored 28th place if I didn't reveal myself as the author... I'm not salty.

It has been decided that penalties will not bring any levels to the worst world, so even though it will still be the lowest ranking level, it will be placed in the normal maps (as its actual scores aren't bottom-tier).

I thought your -∞/60 score was lower than that, learn to math LOL
I've talked with TRS about this but tbh, and not meaning to invalidate the scores, ImpeTRS, Agent Q, and Magiluigi shouldn't really be that high since all three are just beautiful but safe levels. Kinda weird that after the little spat with Sokoban that in the end the safer levels scored higher than the more creative levels. TRS at least feels the same (about snn and it being weird), and really, congrats to all four, but tbh SNN and NGB got snubbed hard by a small margin.
I like how I predicted that I'm 13th place. Such a good day to be me. All I would have needed to complete it would have been a score of 48, but that meant being in 15th place or something? I'm just fine with 13.

Maybe some judges thought the 20 points of creativity also meant creativity in aesthetics, which allowed the score to be 50% aesthetics lol
Also after looking through the scores, Koopster seems to be the one that really praised creativity in obstacle design rather than safety and aesthetics which I do like.
I tied for 19th. Not bad, I guess. I was tied for 18th last year, but since there are more entries this year, I think that means I actually improved slightly.

Congrats to the winners!
