A cool video is definitely a bonus, I saw a few that were extremely entertaining and made the song that much cooler. I'm looking for ways to get those submissions the visibility they deserve!
I sure hope my original song got put in the right category. I was scared when you messaged me saying it was moved into the parody category! I put in a lot of effort to make the beat from scratch and then write the lyrics and rap them

When are the results gonna be posted, i'm chomping at the bit lol

Love this idea, especially since I originally made my video for the Summoner's showcase.

Ah, good to know. Thank you for answer!

By the way, this contest gave us much less time to prepare our entries (bad) but also was judged faster (good).
What was the reason of haste? I think about next volumes - will they have similar deadlines?

Special edition Summoner's Showcase focused only on songs that didn't win?

Winners seem to be chosen over a day already, so why not make the list of winners public? A lot of people are waiting for it..

They have to get the post written and possibly a video produced. They have to get releases from the winners signed and returned also.

By tonight. We need to finalize the list, get everything set up for the announcement and posted. It takes longer than it seems, and there's still so much to do to prepare for PAX that I'm balancing a lot!

Definitely by tonight. Then we can, collectively, rock out.

Aw. Your tonight would be my noon. Sadface.
Still, I'm glad there's progress. I don't really envy you for your task. I imagine it would keep me up night after night as well ... well, okay, it did nonetheless. But for different reasons!
