As in this month of May, 2016. * No WIP concepts or re-posts please. This contest is here to encourage new content. You may be disqualified. * Concept Entry must be YOURS. If the linked concept’s author and your name are different your entry will be disqualified. * Entries will be taken from now until I post a **contest closed** thread on the 31st at noon EST. * All entries must have a LORE and a KIT section to be considered a concept. More is needed to remain competitive, but to be entered you need at least that. * The first 20 entries will be taken. Any posts above that limit will not be entered. * Entrants can be disqualified based on rude behavior towards other entrants/judges (negative feedback is fine!), disregard of the [Universal Forum Rules](http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/4LgZ2EwM-universal-rules) (porn is NOT a legitimate reference image) or other major problems. >#How to Enter 1) Post your concept normally within the **Skin & Champion Concepts** Board, if it's not already posted. 2) Reply to **THIS POST** with a link to Step 1 3) Wait for me to reply with "Entry Confirmed!". If it takes more than a day for me to reply I may have missed you, don't hesitate to remind me! 4) Watch the "Current Entrants" List above and double check you're up there, if you are you're in! Remember: There is max of TWENTY slots. >#Timeline * 5/24 - CCOS begins, entries taken * 6/1 - Entries no longer taken, judging begins * 6/14 - Judging stops, buffer time begins, NEW HOST CHOSEN * 6/17 - Results announced >#Scoring Entries will be scored based on five categories (and a bit of extra credit) with the following weighting. (Max) Category (20) Lore (25) Flow/Fun (20) Design Implementation (20) Novelty (15) Cohesiveness (+10) Good Neighbor Bonus --------------------------------------- (100+10) Total per judge If you have any questions on a category I'd be happy to go into more detail. >#Good Neighbor Bonus This category is a small addition to the rest of the concept scoring. Simply, to get 10 bonus points towards your score give feedback to your fellow entrants! Just commenting by itself won’t give you a full 10 points either, make sure they can use it. and with any luck you’ll get some comments too! Specific steps: Pick any of the other entrant concepts above and read one (or more!) Leave a comment on the concept with constructive feedback (Doesn’t have to be sugercoated!) Click ‘permalink’ on the comment in question Copy the resulting URL into *your* concept post A judge looking at your post will see this link and award you points! (so don’t hide it anywhere) >#Judges! So if you're at all interested in judging this month, e-mail me at 'arma.malum@gmail.com' and I'll give you more info. I encourage questions! ^_^ I will ALWAYS need more judges and there is no detriment to trying and walking away halfway through (because a month is a long time). ># FAQ *But I've never made a concept before....* Never fear the Sir is here! I’ve made a [Introduction to Champion Concepts](http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/fancreations/X7h3YX5c-guide-introduction-to-champion-concept-making) post just for you! New conceptors are not only welcome but encouraged to participate! I will be happy to take questions about making a champion concept as well. Getting new conceptors into the scene with confidence behind their concept is a huge motive behind this event! :D *I have a WIP concept...* Feel free to post and work on your concept as much as you want. It's not technically entered until you provide the link to the entries thread. Just make sure you're not the 31st entry and the original post is within the month! *I don't have a concept and I don't have time to judge. But I want to help!* That. Is. Awesome. The single best way for you to help me, the other judges and the entrants is to give feedback! Negative, positive, just make sure it's constructive and the author can use it effectively if they so choose. In fact if you want some tips on giving feedback to Champion Concepts check out Jaykoboy's awesome How-to guide [here](http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=1513686). *Can I change my concept after entry?* As encouraging feedback and concept participation is a major motive behind this contest, I encourage iterating on a concept, HOWEVER you have to be able to argue it's still the same champion, no major changes or it will have to count as a new entry with your previous entry being disregarded. Remember: your entry doesn't start until you provide the link here, If you want feedback before entering I advise to simply post normally and provide the link when you feel you're ready. Just be sure to enter before next Monday and before we hit 20 entries! *Can I change my concept after judging starts?* Yes, but there's a catch. I do not micromanage the judges. I let them peruse the entries at their own pace in their own order, so I can not guarantee your changes will be seen by every judge. If you do make changes that late in the game you have to be prepared for a score that does not accurately reflect your end-all concept. ># Support the CCOS! Some of you have been doing this already, but if you'd like to support the CCOS and get more people each month provide a link to this post on your entry so others can find it easier. This lets the CCOS have more visibility without me spamming reminders and generally getting on everyone's nerves. This is by no means a requirement, but I am appreciative of anyone who does help out! ># A new host approaches! It has been a blast guys, but that time I mentioned a few months back has finally arrived. This CCOS will be the last I host. And, in fact, the results for this CCOS will hopefully be announced by none other than.....well I haven't actually chosen just yet. There are quite a list of people that are vying for the position of CCOS. The new host will be chosen on JUNE 14th, and his/her results post will (hopefully) go up on the 17th with a confirmation by me in the comments. It's the end of an era, and to be honest it probably should have ended sooner what with how much I've been personally slipping over the last few months. I'm not sugarcoating it, I've been sloppy. I sincerely hope you all don't hold that against the CCOS itself, that's on me. But that being said, these last two years (good lord it's been that long....) have been a lot of fun, and I'm proud to say that the CCOS has had more than FOUR HUNDRED entries over its lifetime under me. While I'll say it again later, I hope it'll see another four hundred in the years to come. Best of luck to you all!
