Welcome to the 2013-2014 run of Character of the Year. The purpose of this contest is to decide who has made the best character within a Year of work, by requiring criticisms for our fellow Naruto-Boards members, and of course improve ourselves in character making and have fun. This will be an ongoing contest for an entire year, and you'll participate with your characters in a multitude of trials which are:

Character of the Week:

Where you can participate with characters with a specific timespan. (Eg: 01.01.2010- 08.01.2010)

Characterof the Month:

Where only people that won the Character of the Week trials can participate with the characters that either won them or they can replace them with another character made within that month. (And yes, they can participate with as many characters as the number of Character of the Week trials won within that month)

Character of the Season:

It will go by the same principle as Character of the Month, the only able participants would be the ones that succesfully won the Character of the Month trials with the characters that won or with a character of choice to replace the ones that won in the Character of the Season trials. The only huge difference is that there will also be held a trial contest named Autumn/Winter/Spring/Summer's Last Chance that will make you able to participate in this trial with the character with whom you won or you can replace it, like the other characters in this.

Autumn/Winter/Spring/Summer's Last Chance:
In this trial you may only participate with characters that won the Character of the Week trials, whom you may not change, like you could in the other trials. This trial will be held deliberately, without any announcement of when it will be held.

Character of the Year:
All characters that were pit in the Character of the Season as winners will be pit in the final trial to become The Character of the Year. There will also be a trial that is quite similar to the Autumn/Winter/Spring/Summer's Last Chance, but it's only difference will be that you will be able to join with one character and a character that won any of the Trials. Does not matter which. It's name will be kept secret and you might have a huge surprise during that time.

Ranking System

Custom Character Maker Ranks:

Battler (1-100)- Basic Rank.

Duelist (101-250)- You are able to challenge a character maker for the next CotW trial to have your characters posted in the same group. If either of you win, the victor will steal 25 points from the one with whom the duel was. This benefit can be used only before either of you posted an entry and a challenged person may not challenge another one.

Respected Fighter (251-500)- You are allowed to attach a side note to your character, in which you may mention further explanation to some skills. At this rank, duels will get you stolen 50 points instead of 25.

Honorable Opponent (501-900)- Defeating a person of this rank will grant you 10 additional points and in duels will get you 75 points stolen. You can challenge two persons in a duel now.

The Joker (901-1500)- You may set a combo multiplier of 2x to your groups in CotW (multiple points gained in it). This applies to points stolen in duels and these multipliers can stack with others. 20 points will be gained by victors v you and 125 is the current duel steal value.

Dark Knight (1500-2500)- Any character that faces you off in a CotW Group or CotW Final, will have a combo multiplier of 2x that doesnt stack with other multipliers. This doesn't apply to any other amounts or duels held there and may only applies to character makers that are at least a rank below you. You are also able to force duel a character maker that already submited an entry. Anyone who defeats you in a group you are in gains 50 points, instead of the previous 20 and the duel stealing value current amount is 225.


Judge Ranks:

Just Anyone (1-10)- Basic Rank

Believable Judge(11-20)- You can mention flow without explaining it, but if you mention it in the final decision, you will have to explain at least the flow of the character that has been mentioned.

Caretaking Judge (21-40)- You can deem a vote invalid as long as it violates the rules, gaining 1 judge point for that. If it had no rule violated whatsoever, the judge will lose 3 points and the vote will become valid. The judge must quote the vote as it was and if the voter edits with a valid vote, nothing will happen.

Dictator (41-65)- You can take an apprentice, meaning that one judge that has lower points than you will gain a doubled amount for each vote they give and half of the points gained as a judge by the apprentice will be gained by you too. (Negative points do count)

Evolved Judge (66-100)- Each vote you give will count as two votes. The point gain will be exactly the same as a normal one tho.

Familiar Face (101-115)- The judge is able to take two disciples.

Gloating Judge (116-130)- Can set a bonus point boost once a month.

Hitchhiker (131-160)- The apprentice, if he votes in the same group as you, will gain an additional judge point.

Person of Interest (161-200)- Each vote you give will count as three votes. The point gain will be exactly the same as a normal one tho.

General Entry Rules:
-You can participate with two characters that were made during the timespan given for the trial.
-Your entries can be either PM'd or posted on the topic, but in the PM you must specify for which trial you want to compete. (Eg: This entry is for Character of the Week [1.01.2010 - 8.1.2010)
-You must post the topic onto which the character was posted once you use it as an entry. If the character was made in 2010 and you repost the topic, lets say today, and you're caught, you will be disqualified. Also the character including the date onto which it was made, could also disqualify you if it doesn't correspond with the contest's timespan.
-You may not write any username or nickname of any person that might give away by who the character has been made.
-You may use any kind of template in this contest, but you may not participate with entries higher in image dimension of 875 px in height and 675 px in wideness.
-If you have two or more entries, they can't be posted in the same post, so the contest can reflect the order in which the character were applied with.
-You may not disobey any limitation given by our winners.
-You may only enter with pictures made by you and not any from an image shop or other people.



Voting Rules and Mode of Voting:
Your votes must mention something about each character. (Eg: I like how character x deals a lot of damage and how character y has great defensive...)
You must specify why you consider the character you vote better than the other two character(s). (Eg: I consider that character x is better, because unlike the other characters, he deals an average amount of damage with simple costs, keeping up with his flow, but the other two have messy high amount of damage that are just an excuse to make the character original)
Your decision may not be based solely on pictures. (Eg of what you should not do:
#3 character has better pictures than the other two. Their pictures are LQ and lame. #3 is for me)
If you mention something about the balance of a character, you must exemplify why you consider that character.(Eg: First character is much better than the second because he is balanced. Unlike 2nd character that can go invulnerable for 5 turns in a row, this character is simply awesome, he just deals the right amount of damage and has the right amount of defense.)
If you mention something about the flow of a character, you must exemplify the flow of the character.(Eg: I prefer first character's flow because you can use 1st and 2nd skill in order to create a gigantic amount of defense and then use 3rd skill in order to succesfully stun the opponent for a great amount of turns. Anyway, 2nd character lacks any kind of flow, which I dislike. All that character's skill are randomly thought effects)
Originality may not be used as a reason to vote, but it can still be mentioned in votes. (Eg of what to not do: This character is original. VOTE VOTE VOTE #3 VOTE!!
Oversimplified/Overcomplicated character may be used as a reason, as long as you explain why the character is too complicated or too simple. (Eg: First character is too simple, because it only has simple and plain effects, while the second character is too complicated, because it has too many effects that are placed there randomly)
The design of the template does not count if that's the sole reason you vote for one character. The pictures will also count in this category, if mentioned, so they won't count as something else if mentioned in the vote.
•If a character is chakra heavy and you consider it a bad thing, you must explain how it influences the character badly, according to the character's skills. (Eg: This character's offensive skills are way too costly and they shouldn't cost that much, because the chakra type for them is really hard to gain. It will take hours to even cast a skill of theirs. Their defensive skill doesn't really help much, since he's solely based on offensive, which mostly cannot be used.)
•You may only vote for one character.
•You may not vote for yourself, unless the group contains only your character. You won't need to give any reasonings if they are your characters.
•You may not empty quote or copy any of the votes already given or say in your vote, I agree with person x.
•You may not vote if your post count is under 500 posts.
•You may not vote if your account is not two months old.

Side Notes, Crediting and Extra Info:

•For the crediting part the banners were made by Abz0r. Thank you and I give you my best for your effort of doing these banners.
•Since the year of 2012 is ending and it's a warm holiday season, I decided to give you the first and last extension of the timespan. Don't ask when groups and other such things will be posted, because, it will depend mainly on how many entries will be made for the contest.
•The GMT of this contest is GMT +0, so you would know from which hour to which hour the entries count.
•Groups will be posted every thursday if there are more than 16 entries. If there are not 16 entries by the end of thursday, groups will than be posted on Friday as soon as the count reaches 16 entries. Anything after that will be ignored

The current trial is: Character of the Week [29.12.2012-04.01.2013]

Timespan: [27.12.2012-4.01.2013]

Any Point Boosts or Irregular Regulations: None


The Timespan sets the days in which the character should've been made to have a chance to be accepted in the competition. In order to join with a character you must also prove that the character was indeed made in the given timespan. For that posting the topic on which you've posted it help. Anyway, if the topic shows a repost or a rework, you'll be disqualified if that is found out. If you're caugh cheating, you're gonna be unable to compete for a week. Depending on how many times you've done this before, the period might extend.

Good Luck.
