NM24 - Process
(Moderator's Note): All results of our efforts can be seen here: The Halls of Justice

Since the work has already been done for me, I thought a simple cut and paste would suffice... :lol:

Let's get this thing rolling.

The 24-Hour Customs Thread
Where your customs are critiqued to perfection in only 24-Hours.

Our Mission:
- To create a workable directory of customs that are ready to be used by any group or player.
- To have a set of quality guaranteed, balanced customs with no errors and are as official as possible.

The Process:
The NM24 process focuses on speed and excellence in its critique. In this regard we do not worry about the exact point value of the custom being 100% accurate, but rather that it is playable and within 5-10 points which more, time-consuming play-testing will dictate. Our goal is to quickly and effectively critique and correct any errors on a chosen card. This process DOES NOT include adding new abilities or large scale changes to the Army Card. The process DOES, however, include smaller changes including, but not limited to: rewordings, graphic changes, changes in points, stats changes of 1 or 2, left box details, etc.

Unfortunately, if many creators start suggesting large scale changes because the card is not thematically accurate, too overpowered, too unbalanced, etc. then the nomination must be withdrawn because of too man flaws.

This is a reviewing process for previously critiqued works, not rough drafts.

The process for a specific card is over when three individual members give a "thumbs up to the card. A thumbs up may be given by these smileys: :up: , :thumbsup: OR the words "Thumbs up!", "Good to go," etc.

Once a card is NM24'd, a new card must be nominated. The process to nominate a card is described below in bold.

To the Creator:
Once your card has been nominated and you agree to the process, you must be able to make a small commitment to update the card regularly throughout the 1-4 day process. This is to ensure that the process moves along smoothly without huge delays.

After your process has been completed, please post a new card to undergo the process. If the creator of the new card DOES NOT post within 24 Hours saying it is OK for his/her card to go through the process, PLEASE post another card from a different creator. Try to use people's cards who are active at the time.

Before a creator posts to say it is OK, others are still permitted to give their opinions on the card and thumbs if appropriate, just know that the custom may still be withdrawn.

The Rules and Timeframe:
1. You cannot nominate your own card.
2. The creator has 1 day to OK his/her custom for review once it has been posted for nomination.
3. After the creator has OK'd it, the process must be completed in 5 days. If there is not 3 thumbs up in 5 days, another card is nominated by anyone and we move on.
4. If the process completes in under 5 days, immediately start the next process.

Closing Notes:
- Remember that even though you may love a card, the creator may not have the time to go through the process and its nomination may be withdrawn. You CAN nominate a card again, but try to wait for the creator to be more active.
- If your entry is withdrawn for any reason please don't get mad or blame someone. Sometimes things just happen. If you stay active for sure you will get another chance.
- When posting a card for review try to copy the format found HERE for consistency and accuracy.
- Good luck to all creators!!

Re: NM24 - Process
Alright here we go...

... is great! Range 9 with two attacks of four seems perfect to me. He's a better Syvarris and that is what he is in the comics. Adventurer and Rebellious fit well due to his shadier past.

I think Smoke Arrow should be Smoke Arrow 13 and I'm assuming you copied the Smoke Powder text, because it seems perfect.

One other thing, not that's it's bad how it is, but I think it'd be really cool if Hawkeye could shoot his smoke arrows to protect his friends that might not be adjacent. I realize the cards intent is slightly different, but it was just something that popped into my head when I saw it.

I think Hawkeye has earned my :up: without any change.

Re: NM24 - Process

I agree with hi1hi1hi1hi1 about the Smoke Arrow 13 ability name change.

The only other change I would make is OCD to the extreme, but I would center the Marvel graphic and the Hawkeye name at the top of the card.

With those 2 changes... :up:

Re: NM24 - Process
If we're talking OCD here, you could make the hit zone picture a tad bit smaller. :)

Re: NM24 - Process
I am really hoping that we get at least one more critique for this today. It would be nice to see this process actually work.

GreyOwl June 18th, 2008 07:45 PM

Re: NM24 - Process
Hawkeye is updated with all the suggestions above. I'm not sure if that invalidates the already received "thumb-ups" or not.,,

Re: NM24 - Process
I like it great job Grey Owl, Hi4 and UPC!

Re: NM24 - Process
I think this is a well-balanced piece that I just printed out for myself (as I finally got a Hawkeye mini).

I might like to see another version of Hawkeye, akin to Whitestuff's Judge Dredd, to show off all of Hawkeye's trick arrows, but this version is highly playable and probably a lot more fun for everyone involved due to his streamlined "beat-your-face" approach.


GreyOwl June 18th, 2008 11:01 PM

Re: NM24 - Process
I thought about all his trick arrows, but I decided not to do that just because I did that with my Green Arrow. Essentially, they're the same character as far as abilities and equipment, but I was trying to differentiate my two versions of the characters from each other.

That being said, I would love to see someone else do a version of Hawkeye with all the trick arrows, especially if they came up with different ones than what I used for Green Arrow.

SCORE!!!! We have our first completed NM24 process.

GreyOwl, congratulations!

Post your nomination to continue the process.

Re: NM24 - Process
Are we discussing cost at all in this process? I know we're not doing the playtesting for cost, which is what slows everything to a halt. Nobody mentioned anything about Hawkeye's cost, so I'm not sure if that means it was good or if nobody looked at it. :)

Is someone going to make a logo or something that we can place on "NM24'd" cards?

Up next, I nominated hi's Juggernaut. I've already PM'd him.
