Level of the Week! (PR2)
#1
Big Grin 

Level of the Week finally returns after a multi-year-long hiatus! If you're not familiar with how Level of the Week works, I'll get you updated. Basically every week you guys can suggest your own levels (or someone else's levels) in this thread. If you or your friend's level are made very well and it's fun to play, that level you suggested may win Level of the Week! Want to know how to submit a level? Keep on reading...



How It Works

Simply leave a reply down below listing off a few things. What we'll need to know are...
  • The creator of your submission's PR2 username:
  • Your PR2 username:
  • What the level name is:
  • When the level was last updated:
  • What type of level it is:
  • A description of the level (this one is optional):

The rules for this contest can be found down below in the Rules section of this post. Make sure to read them! After 6 PM CT rolls around on Fridays of each week, submissions for that week are closed, and a new submission period starts for the next week.

Any level can be given the title of Level of the Week.
 However, newer levels are a priority this time around. We'd really like to see you get creative with the new tools added to your arsenal like teleportation blocks, custom stat blocks, or the change made to the moon hat (low gravity baby)!


What we will be doing is every weekend on Sundays, the Judges and I will be playing throughout all the submitted levels made by the users of JV. Once we come to an agreement on what level should win, I will make a post announcing the Level of the Week on the same day. If you see us on during the time we play each level, feel free to join in on the racing!

As for those who are interested in playing each Level of the Week, the winning level that is picked for the week will be where the artifact hat is placed on Thursday's (at varying times so it's fair to everyone living in different time zones). Be quick to play the level and find the artifact first on the given time each week, or miss out on potential big rewards like bonus XP or the elusive Bubble Set!

One very big change that will happen from time to time is the inclusion of something called Theme Weeks. The submission theme for certain weeks will change so that there is more variety from time to time (not all the time though). Examples of Theme Weeks range from Deathmatch Level ThemedArtistic Expression ThemedHoliday Themed, or even Artifact Challenge Themed for weeks where a selection is based around if it would be a good, challenging Artifact to obtain. Some weeks there may be a change to who gets to pick the Level of the Week. Examples of these would be a Staff's Choice WeekCommunity Ambassador's Choice Week, or a Community Choice Week. Be sure to look at this post for updates on when these themes take place as it won't be a common occurrence.



Rewards

Who would want to compete in a competition without rewards!? (Maybe you just like competition? Hmmm?) Anyway, there are quite a few rewards for those that end up having their level(s) win, and even a reward to those who help submit the winning submission!

  • If you win Level of the Week, you will be rewarded with the elusive Dog Set! This is the only way you'll be able to obtain this set, so keep trying even if you don't win the week you submitted your level!
        What the Dog Set looks like:

  • If you win Level of the Week two(!!) times, you will be rewarded with 1,000,000 EXP! That might help you level up a bit I'd imagine.

  • If you manage to win Level of the Week three or more(!!!) times, you will be rewarded with 5,000,000 EXP with each additional victory and a place on this post's Hall of Fame section! If you manage to do earn this reward, all I gotta say is... you make some pretty good levels.

  • If you help submit a winning level (so not your own level, but someone else's), you will be rewarded with the Bubble Set! Thanks for showing off a great level, we appreciate it!

Useful Tips

If you have a useful level creating tip thread and you want recognition for it, PM me! I'd love to have your thread or post featured here!



Rules
  • You must submit your or someone else's level using the format listed in the How It Works section of this post
  • Levels that are created more recently have a more likely chance of winning since we want to highlight levels that utilize newer features. However, levels made prior to this contest starting up again can win too.
  • You cannot submit trap, frustration, unfinished, or troll/empty submission levels unless specified in a submission theme for a given week (example of troll levels: Just drawing an egg plant in a level containing no blocks and no way of finishing).

  • You must submit your level before Friday at 6 PM CT.

  • You can submit up to 1 level per week.

  • The levels must be submitted on JV via this thread. That way I can sort out which levels the judges play in an easier fashion.

  • Submission changes must be made up by Friday at 3 PM CT. If you'd like to change your submission, please make a post stating what the level you made before was and then what your new submission is now while still following the submission format. Making changes to your submissions after this time will move your submission from that current week's list to next week's list.

  • The submission has to be an original and finished submission. Copied levels will not be accepted and will eventually lead to a banning from the contest and your prizes revoked if given any.

  • If you win this iteration of Level of the Week, you must wait a week before you can win again. (You can still submit a different level from a different creator during this time period however.) The same level cannot win twice.

  • The account you submit must have been online in the last year in order to be eligible to win.

We wouldn't have TRAPS included in level of the week, would we?! Levels that actually takes a lot of skill, time, thinking and creativiy to make in this game. 

Sorry, but this is closeminded :/ we really gotta submit a theme week for a chance

Have fun making art levels tho ^^ <3

"Levels that actually takes a lot of skill, time, thinking and creativiy to make in this game."

1. this is so cringe
2. you might wanna type your rant properly if you want to be taken seriously
3. being able to draw something cohesive and atmospheric plus having a fun, interactive level are def things that need skill, some thinking and creativity, don't you think?

You crack me up. I was thinking about submitting Quiz time 3, but how could it hold a candle to perfection like QuizTime II does?
Anyhow, I guess I'm entering into competition with myself either way. I'll submit-

  • The creator of your submission's PR2 username: Overbeing

  • Your PR2 username: Overbeing

  • What the level name is: Scavenger Hunt

  • When the level was last updated: June 29th 2021 (Mostly built in May)

  • What type of level it is: [b]Puzzle/Skill[/b]

  • A description of the level: Difficult, but I wouldn't categorize it as a full Frust level. It makes use of some of the updates that PR2 has had more recently like Custom Item blocks and Custom Stat blocks. It tests your skills and knowledge as a player.
