ROG Rig Reboot 2020 is HERE!

So do we have to post the video publicly or are we allowed to have it as a private link? I kinda don't wanna post it public cuz my friends subbed to my channel will see it.

 

This was mentioned, but you can set it to unlisted. If you set it as private, LMG can't view it.

Do you need stay why you want to win. What games you play and all that in the video or can it be done in the description?

 

The purpose of the video entry is to tell why you should be the winner. Description can give additional details, like how video was made, but it won't be used as reason. They will literally make playlist and view it through. This was discussed on WAN show last year. They spend some 8h total watching entry videos and picking up their top10 for each category.

Out of curiosity does the winner get to select parts or is it all pre-chosen? the choice for an ITX build would be fantastic

 

Watch the previous winners. Parts will be from sponsor, Asus, as much as possible. I'm sure if you have good reasoning for ITX system, it can be done. I remember one of the previous winners getting i9/Extreme edition because they needed it for content creation/modelling.

Rig Reboot Worldwide when

Last year was first. Maybe we get another next year. All depends on stuff and other stuff (read my post few pages back for more).

I love how the actual LTT community has come to loath the ROG Reboot stuff😂

It's because 95% of people involved either:

 

1. Bitch about the rules and being inelligible to join

2. Make extremely low-effort videos and then bitch when they don't win

3. Ask for free shit when they don't even make a video

 

It clogs up the forum, and it's extremely annoying.

And then there are the threads asking for next competition, probably starting few weeks after the videos for this have been released.

Just submitted my video and I’m having an anxiety attack on if I win and miss the contact from LTT. how the winners will be notified just so I can monitor those channels after Friday.

I can't access to form because of geolocation, but from last year, you submit your contact details in that form. Meaning your country, name and email. They will contact you via email, and possibly also using YT messaging system. Email is first method, and you will have 2-3 days to reply before they go for next one.

^^^^ That's my post ^^^^

i imagine it's because 90% of this thread is

(1) people complaining about the contest not being world wide, disregarding any reasoning as to why it isn't

(2) people giving answers to the people that fall under (1)

(3) people who ask if it's available in their country

(4) people who get angry if they don't win

(5) people who think that "hey this is my pc it's bad, but i've always loved you linus and your  videos are inspirational and | this continues on | and doesn't try to make it entertaining which seems to be the whole point.

Anything i've written between the * and * is not meant to be taken seriously.

keep in mind that helping with problems is hard if you aren't specific and detailed.

i'm also not a professional, (yet) so make sure to personally verify important information as i could be wrong.

I checked last years thread, and it seemed like the same, but no international people complaining.

 

Its funny to see all the "1 posts", although I probably shouldn't say that seeing I just joined haha

You're gonna carry that weight.

well you're a "39 posts" *as of writing* and you've been actively answering questions, compared to asking one and then hiding forever

This is what we have to deal with between competitions.

Most of the posts there were merged from separate threads, so it gets tiring for both the mods and the members.

Like- all you need to do is take the announcement date of the last one and add a year, rip mods.

Here's something easier that wouldn't require any math: just use the search function... Then they'll find a thread, or thirty, with an answer, instead of adding to that list.

I'm guessing through their email or a PM on here, seeing as they didn't post something on the giveaway page.

 

Tagging for good measure. @CPotter

Look into parody law. I believe you can parody a song with infringing the intellectual property as long as it meets certain requirements. I don’t remember what the requirements are though.

Thanks. I posted it. Disney claimed it immediately (must be flagged while youtube processes it). I disputed the claim based on fair use - parody. I think it satisfies requirements, but we'll see... Probably doesn't matter with all of the other entries. Thanks for your help :)

@LogicalDrm Props man for going through and answering everyone's questions, yeah I also meant unlisted instead of private but I keep mixing the two up. Also do you know which episode of WAN and possibly time they talked about Rog Rig Reboot, I looked through all of the timestamps for last years episodes and couldn't find it.

That’s actually one of the best quality ones that I have seen so far. Most just seem to be people showing their rig and then saying ‘yeah I should win’, whereas you can up with a good idea and went to the effort of learning it on piano and singing. Good luck!

I made a video but I don't know if I want to submit it yet because there is some good competition like that.

Don’t take any of my posts seriously.

You should definitely submit it. Mine might get DQed anyways if I can't sort out the copyright claim.  There's also a good chance they judge based mostly on need and creativity rather than looking for anything too polished. You never know. Good luck :)

I've sat on ideas for like a week, and today I've finally reached my best idea yet. I've seen that I can hopefully clear the bar of originality, so all that's left it to make the darn thing. I really think this is my year to win. Wish me luck, y'all.

@CPotter

If there is alcohol in the video, is it restricted from winning? I have a scene where I show a bottle of alcohol for about 1~3 seconds. No consumption, just showing the bottle.

 

It's there for a joke.

I'm going to enter, though some folks are more deserving if they aren't lying. My 6 year old PC was stolen earlier this year, but I got it back recently, even if it is a bit worse for wear. Good components for the time and can still play modern titles at lower quality.
