Quote:Hey guys! I’m Generalyahoo747 and I’m here to present you to my new contest series (pun intended)… “Where the duck am I?”!

In this contest, I will be posting screenshots of me standing in a random spot in a random BFH map, and you must guess exactly where I’m standing! But here’s the catch, the background of the image is pixelated and has been rendered black and white, making it (very) hard to distinct where I am!

Every day I will be posting the screenshot with less and less pixilation until someone figures out EXACTLY where I am standing!

This is a very tricky contest and will require a lot of careful planning, map exploring and image analysis, effect decyphering and many more unnecessarily complicated-sounding terms, so with that, let the contest begin!

Every day I will be releasing a less pixelated version of the original image, until somebody correctly finds the location. I am only adding pixelation and black and white (As so not to make it obvious which map it is by the colours) to the backround, and no other effect(s). Heres a simple diagram explaining the process.

There are certain requirements that a submission must have to be a feasible submission. You have to be as specific as you can be when you select the location that you think the image was taken in. I won’t say how specific you have to be, but heres a simple guide in what will be counted as a submission and which won’t be. The idea is to narrow the spot down to as much as possible, but not so much as to incorrectly guess the location, although your guess may be very close to where it actually is.

  • You are only allowed to enter once. If you guess is incorrect you will be disqualified from the competition, so think carefully before submitting. At the same time, the prize will be awarded to whoever guesses the correct location first.
  • No hints are provided. Do not ask me for any hints or tips, the answer will always be no. This includes any questions like "Is this in Coastal Clash" or "Is this on ground level" or anything along those lines.
  • Every entry must comply with the acceptable submissions diagram in order to be eligible to win.
  • You must include which map you think it is along with your submission.
  • Unless you are absolutely sure that you have guessed the right location, and I have not seen your post (which is very unlikely), any submissions that I have not commented on can be deemed as incorrect. If you truly feel like your submission is correct, feel free to PM me, and kindly remind me to check out your submission.

    EDIT: Deadline: Whoever guesses the location first! Although every day I will be lowering the pixilation by 4, maybe 5 or even 6 if I'm feeling generous. By the time it only gets to around 17 pixilation the location becomes fairly obvious. (Day 1s picture starts off at 50).

The person who finds the correct location will receive $2 through paypal, which should get approx 1300 funds.

Best of luck guys!

[last reserve, post away guys!]

Obviously just making a post without a submission will not cause you to be disqualified, just pointing it out Tongue

The pixelation will gradually go down. Yes, Its extremely pixilated and impossible to analyse at the moment because the aim is to first attract attention to the contest. I will post a less pixilated version in around 2 days and so on and so forth.

Just think of it as that thing with the CTF Images, at first you could hardly tell anything but as the pixelation went down, a flag started to appear and before the last one mostly everyone knew what the image was about.

Its totally possible. Imagine how quickly you'd realise that it may have been lunar landing if I turned the colour on?

Besides, as I said with my other replies, the pixelation will gradually go down day by day.

EDIT: Decided to change it to a day-by-day release rather than every 2 days, so as not to drag on the contest.

Not properly submitted, but unfortunately this guess is incorrect.

Incorrect sorry. However, Seeing as though you were the first to post an excellent example of a proper submission, you have another chance Smile Use it wisely.
