Battle of the Critters begins!
Critmas 2016: Battle of the Critters!Greetings all!

PLEASE NOTE: Don't forget to sign up to be assigned a team!



I hope everyone is gearing up for the festive season! What better way to encourage the gift of giving with a bit of giving on deviantART here? Back for its 6th (yes 6th!) year running, I would like to introduce you to:
CRITMAS 2016:
BATTLE OF THE CRITTERS!
The challenge is back! Between the 12 days of Christmas (December 24th to January 6th), I am encouraging every one of you to submit at least 12 critiques (that's 1 a day) for this challenge. It doesn't matter what the art form is or your style of critique, it is all about giving back in the way most members on here value most; in giving feedback on their work.


But this year there is a slight twist!


All year in the North Pole, the critters have been working getting Christmas and Santa ready for the big day. The Elves ma
Critmas 2016- The Critique TotalsLast updated: 07/01/17 9:00 GMT


Happy New Year everyone! :heart: 
With just 6 days left of critmas, the contest is heating up a treat! The Fairies are on top! The Gnomes who started off slow have now taken second, but to be honest the contest is so tight, I couldn't predict which team is going to win this. However, we've already gone over 200 critiques in total, so well done everyone who has played so far, I know there is more to come!
 The team captains have been absolutely awesome so far, providing useful resources and encouragement where needed. Make sure you check out their journals if you want support! (LiliWrites, Cinestress , BATTLEFAIRIES & HugQueen ) Seriously I love these guys!
If you've not yet joined but want to come in with a late splurge, let me know and I will get you into a team ASAP!

You guys lucky having me in your team because I'm a pro treasure hunter.
I play to WIN!
 :bademoticon: 

But don't rely on just me, comrades, team is a team. Although I'm also aiming for the "most critiques written" award, hohoo..!! ..if any.

Here I'm listing my critiques for the game. I can be very picky when it comes to commenting/giving critiques to specific artworks so I prefer to search & choose for myself rather than having anyone's request.

Thanks for reading. Watch my next conquest!

Anyway if you're interested in critiquing my deviations, consider these:
Mystery Kitty #1: Come Out and Play
Mystery Kitty #2: Neverdying Wonder
Literature:
Slytherclaw Tales #1 The Knight and His Cat

Even more will come. Could use the exposure.
Oh yes I'm up to some (not just one) things! Fox emoji - cool

So here I conclude the finish line of my hunt & race.
83 Critiques in 14 days and about 20 were actually written in 1 day! My most intense game so far!
Didn't even have time to add more deviations open for critiques.
So glad although my team didn't make it first place there are still individual prizes, hehee..
(egocentric fox is egocentric).

And so the final result is:
I won the 2nd place!

Critmas: The battle is over! (Results)WOW! Seriously... 
917 Critiques in 12 days!
That has SURPASSED every year ever we have done on critmas, 6 years of joy!
2011- 120*
2012- 120*
2013- 158
2014- 366
2015- 206
2016- 917
*exact figures unknown as we didn't record them like we do now!
THE FAIRIES ARE THE WINNERS!


The battle of the critters was huge! Those who got on board really threw themselves into the team mentality and I hope those who did made some new friends as a result! 
Despite a great effort from the Gnomes, who started so far behind then perked up higher and higher, it was the fairies whose last day attack really made then undefeatable! Although the Pixies and Elves made good efforts, nothing would deter the fairy hoarde! In fact, every team reached over 100 critiques, which is p


But.. can you believe I'm still in 2nd place after 'killing' some Krakens?? :ohnoes:
That's because of 'dat even sneakier Mother Kraken! :rage:
Oh well, competitors, got to learn from them.

Still, this is a CONQUEST (told 'ya)!
I've done my very best, pushing my brain (with the help of tea, hot cocoa, and some snacks - and also healthy fruits & veggies) during the 2 weeks.
Looking forward to more games (and of course to WIN!). arrrr pirate

Odd that I got a notification for this so long after it was posted! :D 
SlytherclawPadawan's avatar
Wow it's curious of DA :XD:
Malintra-Shadowmoon's avatar
These were times ... long before my Critmas times :D
SlytherclawPadawan's avatar
But apparently Critmas has been going on for years even before this! :D 
Btw did you get notified about this journal? I'm pretty sure I didn't tick the "notify my watchers" when I was updating the journal's title a bit..
Malintra-Shadowmoon's avatar
Yes, I got notified about this journal and first was looking around why. Well, I have seen that you critiqued some piece of me. Probably that was why. It was worth another comment :D
SlytherclawPadawan's avatar
Ooops that's weird.. I thought usually the watchers wouldn't get notified oh noes! I just corrected the capitalization of the titles a bit just to make the series more uniform, much neater.. :P
Thanks for the comment on the old game. :XD:
FicktionPhotography's avatar

I would have liked to but it was the holidays and I was busy doing family stuff.
SlytherclawPadawan's avatar
Ah I see. Well, see you next year if you're still into the game - provided we're on the same side, hehee..  arrrr pirate

Malintra-Shadowmoon's avatar
:wow: You have been very diligent :hug:
SlytherclawPadawan's avatar
Haha.. yes, thank you! :D :work: I play every game seriously (when I'm on fire). But even that still can't defeat the Mother Kraken! :cries: (Check the Critmas result journal if you're curious. :))
Malintra-Shadowmoon's avatar
Well, interesting results. I feel that the Critmas was a great success :)
