    Pokémon Online Youtube Tournament
    Narration competition!


    Welcome to the Youtube Part of the POYT this year!
    For this part of the tour, pairs of 2 users will work together to edit and narrate videos based on the POYT battles for this year!

    Timeframe and Deadlines
    - Rounds for this tour will be staggered between the POYT rounds, so round 1 for this tour will be when POYT is in the middle of round 2, therefore meaning competitors for the narration contest will edit and narrate on battles from round 1!
    - Deadlines will be set midweek of the POYT rounds, so videos must be submitted by then via forum PM to myself and Kyrk.
    - This will be fully documented in the Narration Contest thread's rounds, so make sure to check the YouTube Channel forum for updates!

    What to do

    - First, one of you must sign up and state the name of the other person in the pair. For example if I was joining with Weavile, I might post 'in with Weavile'. The second person then needs to post to confirm. To do this, they should quote the other person's post with something along the lines of 'confirming'.
    - Create your videos using the battle replays uploaded by competitors in the POYT tournament.
    - PM the video files to myself and Kyrk.
    - These will then be uploaded to the Pokémon Online Simulator Youtube Channel.
    - Keep uploading by the deadline for each subsequent round, and cross your fingers that you win!

    Scoring
    - Videos will be scored taking into account two factors: views & likes, and judges' scores.
    - Points will be in rank order, with a maximum of 20 points to be won each round.
    - So, for example first place with the highest judge score will get 12 points, the next 10, third highest 9, and so on.
    - Points are weighted so that the onus is on the judges' scores, with a maximum of 8 points to be gained from views and likes, and a maximum of 12 for judges' scores. This therefore means that not only is popularity taken into account, but also the quality of the videos produced.
    - In the event of the judges scored creating a tie, both pairs will be scored together in the same point boundary, so if both got equal third in judges' scoring, they would each get the 9 points.

    Eliminations
    - All users will participate until the semifinals, where overall scores will be added up, and the top 5 will go through.
    - For the finals, the top 3 highest scorers from the semifinals will go through.

    The Judges
    - Kyrk
    - Edgar
    - Chimpakt
    - 6fthax

    Prizes
    - You will earn a weekly narrating spot on the PO YouTube Channel!
    - In addition, the winning pair will win €40 each!

    To join

    Deadline for signups will be the 31st December 2013.

    I am in by myself, but I do have a question: What if you are knocked out of the original tournament early on? Obviously I don't plan on it, but half of us die after round 1

    This competition is separate. You can get knocked out of the POYT and still be in and win this competition.


    On a side note, less of the shitposting in here guys.
