ROG Rig Reboot 2020 is HERE!

Just now, Oliver Michael said:

Cpotter told me in private messages that:

They hope to have the top 20-30 selected and announced by the end of the week.

I'm fairly certain this means that the winners will be selected and emailed somewhere between next wednesday and the wednesday after that, so two weeks from here.

 

TLDR

top ~30 expected by end of the week, winners expected to be contacted by the next 2 weeks.

top 30!?!?!? what? i thought there was only 4 winners, unless I'm misremembering.

GTX 1070 - Ryzen 5 1600 - Corsair H100i V2 - 16GB DDR4 2400 - Flat broke

Top 30 entries, aka the best entries. The 3 winners are selected from that group, 2 from US or Canada, and one from British Columbia in Canada

i thought is was the top 25 and then the three winners get the free pc

 

the top entries vary depending on how many good entries they get, CPotter said top 30 or so but that doesn't guarantee a number

Ohhh. now that makes sense. So the number if the top thingy depends on how good the entries were?

yeah, obviously they have to keep it within a reasonable number, but we should expect about 20-30 some finalists.

It's well edited, but it does seem like a simple rig showcase.

I also want to start working with blender, visual effects, graphic art and shit, animating, voice acting, all that, but my pc is total ass lol. I love drawing and modeling but I don't have the hardware for it, like a nice pc or a drawing tablet. Your pc is so much better than mine lmao

I have a bit of experience with blender; I took a digital art class in middle school and learned photography, how to use photoshop, adobe premiere, and blender

not to brag but I'm a bit of a decent video editor

This competition is stressing me tf out lmao, I feel like I won't be good enough but at the same time it's my own work so I see it with a different eye than anyone else.

Don’t worry yourself to much, yours can’t be any worse than mine. Mine was taken on my phone with no way of editing it.

Please keep discussion relevant to the topic and constructive. All these off-topic posts and casual chit chat posts will make it harder for others to follow the thread and find answers to their questions, which will likely result in the same questions being asked multiple times. This is not Discord.

 

Please do not post multiple posts in a row. There's been a lot of people posting 3 or 4 posts in a row a few seconds after another. You can add multiple quotes from different people to a single post. If you want to add more comments after you post then edit your post.

 

You can share your video submissions here, but please only post a link to your video once. There have been some people spamming their video here and I can assure you that getting more views on your video will not help your chances.

Report a post using the triangle on the bottom of a post. Make sure you say you want it deleted, and preferable a reason. A moderator will eventually delete

ENCRYPTION IS NOT A CRIME

Either @piratemonkey or quote me when responding to me. I won't see otherwise

HA you suck at fingerdash, also it just seems like another common rig showcase tbh

ive finished all the main levels, that was basically a lag showcase, if you were watching the screen there were at least two game stutters and the only reason why i died there was a level freeze

 

also, "it just seems like another common rig showcase tbh"

well shit

At what point are winners decided? I've pretty much stopped hoping at this rate because it's been awhile and I don't know exactly when winners are actually notified lol
the stress is eating away at me and it would be great if I knew others were sharing in my stress right now

The competition ended on Friday, after being open for a week. Hardly "been awhile". As stated, it takes them time to look through 4kx1min videos.

Yeah 3400x1 minute videos is about 56 hours. Obviously not all videos are exactly 1 minute, some are shorter, but the point still stands that it's a ton of footage, even for a team of 5 people.

I had to watch it a few times - the main issue is that you are not really talking about the computer itself, but rather something that it is trying to run;
You are saying your name somewhere in the middle of the video, and also mentioning "HP Reverb G2" way too many times;
I understand that it may be a bit stressful to shoot a video, but some intonations are a bit weird;
1/16 resolution of what though?
As I can tell from MRTV channel in the "recommendations", you were trying to imitate someone else - good attempt, looked pretty similar;
Liked the vr headset and the game it is able to run with the computer.

I don't think a "grill pc" is a new idea, have you seen the video where the dude grills steak on his cpu? Also, the second one seems way more creative, that's impressive as all hell.

Also, I read the comment section and the creator of the second video was incredibly kind and nice about it and you were very rude, claiming that he "tried to one up you", like for me there were other apple parodies similar to mine and I didn't go on their videos and claim that they copied me. People can have ideas before you, you aren't the first.

You're gonna carry that weight.
