Is the hat account-bound?

I know personally I didn't choose a drink because I thought it would be too "easy," even though I would probably enjoy that the most. When Oda said he would be judging on complexity, I decided to do something else. I wanted to be different so that's why I decided not to make a baked good. Instead, I hand-made my own noodles and two sauces, which took all day. I knew more baked goods would win because they're easier to replicate IMO. That's just the nature of the game. Perhaps for the future we could have an all-drink contest.

Edit: also, I think the dragon breath drink didn't win because it was more of an art thing. I think the gms were looking more at the actual content inside the glass, even though it was really good.

Oh, I honestly never thought my choc. tart would actually make it to the top 3, I'm very honoured, thank you!! I did it purely for fun because (as you probably could see) I don't cook much, but I love RO a lot, and I also love eating chocolate haha (why I chose a chocolate thingie :) ). 

Congratulations to everyone, it was a fun event! :D

Congrats, Syn.

 

I feel like you're the only true winner here.

Oda let the GMs around the office vote and I feel like they really dropped the ball here.

 

I think the complexity part should be deleted from your post, Oda.

Tigra's stew looks very nice presentation wise, but if you're judging from that angle, the curry and dragon breath -_-tail are also great.

 

No disrespect to Natsume, but she won solely because there were porings on the top.

The chocolate spilled down into the pan and she added things that weren't even part of the original.

 

I'm fine if people want to say I'm bitter, but I could have picked multiple things that were better than 3rd place.

 

Grats nonetheless, but I feel the ball was dropped here.

 

No disrespect taken, but let me assure you, if for one moment you might think I just had a "meh" approach to the tart, you're so very wrong. I hope you realize that I had fun doing it and that I did my best. Sure it could never be served in a restaurant, but my family licked the platter clean.

 

I didn't expect to win, I didn't participate to win but to have fun. Still, if someone addresses me, I am obliged to answer, and I'm answering here because I see there are people who agree with you: 

 

About the porings: I honestly didn't know or recognized what the magenta thingies were on the official art, and I couldn't find cherries (which were my guess of what they might be) anywhere in my village, and was way too late to change the recipe, but while shopping I found myself staring at the pink sugarpaste and the idea just came to me suddenly. I could just make pink circles of sugarpaste, but, how boring (and what a waste of sugarpaste) :/  so I wanted to have a little bit of fun. 

 

Chocolate spill, yes it happened and you know what? I could have covered it up, and removing it, but I didn't. I removed it later as the chocolate got peeled from the dough. 

 

Nope, please don't congratulate me if you think I don't deserve it, same goes for everyone else who thinks the same. Better to know where I stand than to be lied to. About you being bitter, I never said that. 

 

I will not respond to anything more in the forum about this, you can PM me if you want, because I'm afraid of drama and hate drama a lot.

Can there be an in-game type announcement for this type of event in the future? We only found out about it on the last day. Had to rush make something only to have it not qualify cause no pics were taken during the making, wasting time, effort and money. 

Was fun nonetheless and thanks for the event.

 

p.s How did the dragon -_-tail not place?!?! That thing had RO all over it.

Thanks so much everyone. I had fun making it. @Myzery, it was stated from the start that the gms would be picking the winner. It would always be subjective and controversial no matter what he picked. Saying that syn is the only "true winner" is frankly rude, even if it is true. I think the three winners won for different reasons. Syn for looking identical, mine for being creative, and Natsume for being unique and fun. All 3 generally looked like the in-game image (perhaps besides natsumes, but it's pretty close) and were complex, if that was even considered. You can make a case for numerous different results, but in the end it was decided by Oda. I know there's probably a lot of frustrated people though, but you can't please everyone...

Thanks for holding this event, cien.

Edit: I edited my original post as well.

The nice thing about having the contest decided by one person is that I take the heat for my choices, which are subjective. If you do not agree with all the choices GOOD-we live in a free society so we don't have to think in unison! The pool of finalists was influenced by the votes from other CMs/Producers, but the final choices are mine alone-that's how the contest was set up in the first place. There will be plenty of opportunities for additional creation to be celebrated. Just because something didn't place doesn't mean that it's garbage or I hated it. This isn't the Nobel peace prize, it's a fun contest for fun people.

You can take it as rude, but that's my opinion and I'm not one to sugar coat things.

Obviously other people agree with me and that's fine, it's only an opinion.

You shouldn't be offended by it; you won. What you did was creative, that's obvious. When Oda says he's judging by complexity though, that's where the discrepancy comes in to play.

I'm a very straight forward person and I realize that I'm going to offend some people, but it's better to be honest than to dance around issues and have nothing ever change.

Usually in a true competition you pick the best ones, not ones that you personally fawn over.

I think it's pretty unanimous here that leaving a certain drink out was pretty shocking.

Where is the spirit of competing when multiple people felt like they had to submit their entries anonymously to get a fair shake at winning?

Can you give your reasons for picking each dish and why you thought the dragon breath c0cktail didn't merit a spot?

 

Perhaps that's too much to ask.

Hehe so just out of curiosity, when you're adding them do you ever get bored or nosy and poke around the accounts, if only scrolling the character selection screen?

...Do you even have to add them in that way, actually? o-o;

I thought it was because it was a cooking contest, not a clay crafting art contest? Overall it was a drink and without their own category, they'll never win.

Thanks for the reply, I don't know much about what the GMs are capable of. That is just so much less fun though ._.

Think of how much time poor Oda would have to spend going through each account =(

They usually change your password when they actually log on to your account (and often forget to change it back)

I think it's pretty neat that they can automate it.
