[FF20] Avatars Of A New Brikpocalypse

Post by Food_Truk » Sun Feb 23, 2020 6:01 pm

There is currently a lack of footage, but witnesses recall when the Large HardOn Kollider was activated at Quantum Inc.'s scientific headquarters. The lights went dim within a fifty mile radius, radios shifted channels rapidly, phones started receiving repeated prank calls that featured nothing but endless farting, minifigs suddenly developed interests in harmless and sometimes even constructive hobbies like baking or board games. After that, there's been an uncomfortable feeling ever since. As if something isn't quite right.

Image
STABILITY - THE KANONA VIRUS
A sentient infectious disease and the physical representation of nostalgia gone wrong, the Kanona Virus is the microscopic manifestation of Stability. It spreads through minifig-to-minifig contact. Symptoms can show up anywhere from 2 to 14 days after exposure. Early on, they're a lot like the common cold. The minifig might notice:
  • Nostalgia
  • Complaining About Change
  • Shortness of Breath
The Virus turns the minifig if untreated for too long, consuming their facial features and changing them into a copy of Stability.

Image
PEACE - FRAT BOY PACIFICASS
The manifestation of Pacificass that really, really likes alcohol. His goal is to steal all the transparent bricks and brew the best transparent beer ever after he saw that one post about the BierWagen and got obsessed. Hide your Orange Transparent Chainsaws, because he's coming for them!

Image
POOP & JUSTICE - TIMMY THE FORUM TROLL AND TOMMY THE RULES LAWYER
These two have spent the last half hour citing nothing but the same ten Big Bang Theory and Simpsons quotes. Timmy the Forum Troll with his giant Shit Stick quickly befriended Tommy The Rules Lawyer with his Letter Of The Rule and Yellowtooth Keyboard which he uses to spam his monotonous and repetitive iterations of grammar and rules on every device possible. Together they mostly troll imageboards and spam the same Star Wars builds over and over on social media.

EDIT:
Bonus shot of the Shit Stick. Because.

Very generous, and I'm already working on obtaining a better camera/display table. I'm disappointed in my own iPhone's camera functions.

I'm sorry _Truk. Not trying to steal your thunder but I feel this is something that needs addressed immediately:

Dear M2,

Your judging index card is annoying as all fuck. My hope is that this is some form of depraved experimentation that will hopefully pass, and the sooner the better. The contrived, compounded, and confus(ed)ing format of the infernal thing is causing my brain to want burst out of my skull, then find your brain, and murder it repeatedly. Please never ever ever again in your life think such psychosis-inducing things are a good idea. They truly are not.

Love or Hate,
CaLego

Dear "CL420",

It´s a chart. In black and white. With a standard true type font. I´m really sorry your brain can´t handle this.
And that it makes you so upset that you even can´t send this as a private complaint to me, but use someone other´s Thread for attention.

And yes, it´s an experiment, because it seemed the easiest and most clearly arranged way to compare 22 separate Contest Entries. Your reaction makes me wanna use it constantly in the future, but maybe three times in size, each number and word colored differently and everything written in comic sans. Maybe that´s better for your brain.

And next time you are annoyed by stuff I do, please address me directly. There´s a PM function in the forums, you know?

I hope this information could help you.

Love, "M2" - better known as MadMario.

I tried to fix that chart to be more readable but something went terribly wrong...

Which I attempted to utilize to no avail, hence the hijacking and direct response. The PM function does not work for me.

This is, somehow, better.

My two cents, the sheet could've used a slightly bigger font and switching the minifig names and judging sections on the rows and columns around would make it faster to read but otherwise it was easy to figure out the which and what. Pacificass got the highest total and Timmy the Rules Lawyer's the lamest of the bunch.

I wasn't expecting too much out of this submission after weeks of zero comments but I didn't imagine that someone'd cast Shitstorm lvl. 4 on my thread. :wtc:

Next steps:

6. Increase font size 300%. Decrease box sizes 50%.
7. Save as jpeg, quality level 0.
8. load jpeg, resize to 150%, save as a new jpeg quality level zero.
9. use palette rotation and image inverts to create animated gif
10. save a separate image for each of these steps; add all of them to your post signature

I think this will help make it sufficiently brikwars. Moar dakka + moar bakka, that's the brikwars way
