I have to say, I kinda agree with the notion, but of course it's up to the people making the collab.

It is indeed what I am getting from his posts. However, I've yet to point out that, when you have a limited amount of levels to showcase what VLDC has put out, I would really not want slots wasted on not very fun at all levels, not even as an example of how bad level design can get, or comedy value, or whatever no reason's good.


You act as if the collab is still going to have 180+ levels,
After the 60 levels there would be room to spare and then some,
so there would literally be no "slots" being wasted.

I'm going to have to disagree with there being no good reason, quite the opposite,
if it can be in it and not cost anything else there is no good reason "not" to.

Besides, I'm sure if maps are still going to be a thing,
there would be people who actually want to make a worst world map,
I mean hell, look at VLDC9 and tell me people don't get passionate about making them.

I'm not even talking about the actual plans for the actual collab. I am talking about Wind Fish's proposal for the structure of said collab, which caps levels included to a fixed amount. Hence the problem of space, and what levels should get in.

Most likely they won't

Funny thing about that is that we didn't make a Worst World at all because we didn't care before the deadline.
We threw out a small map with shitty perspective and littered it with bad looking sprites just to have a complete thing, and that somehow won the voting.
So we took the liberty of completely redoing it after the deadline.

So yeah, it wasn't that we were really passionate, it was more that we legitimately didn't care about it to the point that we had to be given extra time to make one that lives up to the rest of the maps.


Also no, the worst levels won't be included. If we wanted to extend the range of levels (eg make it more than 60), we would continue down the rankings.
Claiming that the worst levels are somehow more interesting than the second third of the rankings is silly. Other than for the sake of sating your curiosity about which levels are the worst in the context of this contest, they're not anything super special, they ranked this low for a reason.
As for it "not being the same with out it", yeah, uh, as a best-of it already isn't the same.

Hi.
Now that the VLDCX results are out and it won't be Overworld Level Design in VLDCX, you guys, would you throw this forum in the Old Contests & Events?
Seems dumb to have "worst world" levels when there are better levels that won't be in the collab.

So basically yeah the judges know what's up

The subforum will most likely be shafted after the best-of compilation comes out.

If someone makes a compilation rom, there should be a Lost World (for levels that were disqualified), displayed with a light static around a greyscale YI.
absolutely not. Why would we give a level that was disqualified priority and a position in the hack instead of any of the entries that ranked under 60? e: this is also my argument @ including a worst world

the idea of dq'ing joke levels and general shitpost levels is to not encourage them; if we bring any attention to them it just gives people the go ahead to keep doing it.


(were any levels even disqualified? i could see jesus' level getting canned, but other then that)

Reminder that the whole point of disqualifying was cutting the level from the collaboration in the first place.

Have you even played the levels that were disqualified?

I'm pretty sure I've played a couple alrady that is like, no, I'm gonna repeat myself and say I'd rather play the good parts of this contest than the garbage that got submitted.
But Matt we have to include all the bad youtube levels for that ~Tru Vanilla™~ essence /sarcasm

As Carol's biggest fan, you should appreciate that. #tb{:p}

Hi.
But wait, if the level has literally zero effort put into both design and graphics, is it vanilla? After all, not being vanilla takes effort.

Man maybe the worst levels submitted are the most vanilla if you think about it. That's terrible logic.
