We need your feedback!

We're not always perfect at our jobs, and as we work on building The-Black-Box-League, we're again looking to make improvements. The feedback we got from competitors after our first season helped us immensely, and we're hoping you guys can give us a hand once again! We want to do everything we can to be as effective as possible.

If you have a moment, please answer as many of the following questions as you feel comfortable. We would prefer you respond via note, but if you feel more comfortable you may also answer anonymously in our new suggestionbox on our work-in-progress Discord server (also feel free to hop over to general and stick around! But maybe don't continue to be anonymous if you're hanging out, that's weird <<)

Characters and Tidbits

Welcome to the Once Dead OCT

There is a black box in your mind. Here dwell the characters that you created, but never saw the light, or perhaps you pitted them against someone else, only to end their existence in the shame of defeat.

They have returned hurt, angry, lonely… and they’re out for blood.

Fortunately, we’ve created a place for them. A happy little village where they can make friends, eat, drink and train to their hearts' content... and engage in a little senseless violence.

Here at the Once-Dead OCT, they will be encouraged to take up arms once again in order to regain their lives. Under the duress of lockdown, the characters must either complete their given objective, or kill everyone else in the process.

After the tyranny of Legs subsided, the original Hotel fell apart - its energy spent for the sake of separating it from the creators’ plain of existence. Where it once stood proud and tall, there is now a little neighborhood full of new energy.

Dear Contestants,

We of The Hotel de las Arañas welcome you to the chance of a lifetime. The chance to take your story into your own hands.

We have the pivotal page; the one that ended your life as you know it. You will either gain the power and privilege of changing it, or you will be ejected back into the abyss from whence you came.

You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.


Let's get to know each other!…
Officially Open from 9 PM to 2 AM EST. But feel free to drop in any time.

Done and done! It's ready when you are!

Well, good luck to everyone who's participating. I'll be cheering everyone on from the sidelines, with a big bowl of buttered popcorn and a really comfy seat.

Can I join ? :D
crazyshiro Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2016  Professional General Artist
Of course! There's still plenty of time, if you're interested! ^w^

I heard this may end up being a free for all league?
WithAQuillInMyHand Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2016
Partly, yes, and eventually. Our 2.5 season is a half-league, half-tournament setup. After that we'll launch into a league setup alongside our regular tourneys.
crazyshiro Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2016  Professional General Artist
Eventually. Not immediately, but yes. We need to get through 2.5, first. 
Gorfuru Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2016   General Artist
Is this OCT still open to try out?
WithAQuillInMyHand Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2016
Do you mean for judging or for competing? :) Judge tryouts are going on right now, and we'll be releasing more info for our next tournament soon!
