Default Spell Action Shot Contest

Tibia has a ton of spells for you to choose from, either as a spell rune or as an instant spell. The spells available depend on your vocation and if you have a premium account or not. E.g. a free account sorcerer will have very different spells then a royal paladin.

To help people learn more about spells we want to make a library of spell screenshots. This way newer players can learn more about the different spells available in Tibia. To help us get all those screenshots, we need your help. Sounds interesting, check out the contest rules and win in-game Tibia items.


Rewards

Pigeon Trophy
Medal of Honour
10x Rune Emblem of your choice (silver or golden)

Rune emblems to choose from: Animate Death, Avalanche, Chameleon, Desintegrate, Destroy Field, Energy Bomb, Energy Wall, Explosion, Fire Bomb, Fire Field, Fireball, Great Fireball, Heavy Magic Missile, Holy Missile, Icicle, Light Magic Missile, Magic Wall, Paralyze, Poison Bomb, Soulfire, Sudden Death, Thunderstorm, Ultimate Healing or Wild Growth.

Each of the top 10 submissions will get a rune emblem of their choice. Out of those 10, the favorite submission of the Tibia ML staff will get a Pigeon Trophy. The favorite submission of the Tibia community managers (out of the selected 10) will get a Medal of Honour.


What do you need to do?

Make a screenshot of yourself casting one of the many spells in Tibia. Make sure the spell is clearly visible without too much overhead of other activity on your screen. To make sure everyone only uses their own screenshots, the character in the photo is the one who’ll receive the reward!

The photo should be uploaded to the Tibia ML group on Mmotter, which can be found here.

In your photo description put your character name and the name of the spell you casted/rune you used.

The competition will end on Sunday August 31st 2013, 12.00 PM CEST. Only screens uploaded to the album of our Mmotter group will be valid.

You can submit up to 5 screenshots but you can only win one reward.

Best of luck to all participants.


FAQ’s

How to upload? Make an account and go to this URL, click on “Photos” and then on the green button “Upload Photos”. Click on “Browse Images”, select the comic(s) and click on “Start Upload”. When the upload is finished, click “Save Photos”.

This sounds awesome, il participate for sure but have some questions:

Does it matter if there are some other characters in the screen? For example an UE on a pk

Is it ok for the screenshot that the equipment and chat etc is cut out?

And does shooting a rune count as a spell?

Hello!
One question!
What is more important:
to show real use of the spell, e.g. using ue on 30 monsters
or using ue on nothing to make it more clear how the spell look like
or compromise - using it on 1-3 monsters to show real use but keep it clear?

Thanks in advance!

I want to know if we are allowed to make gifts, to show the spells.

Also I must know what size of the screenshot because I was thinking in use a small space like "Don't Stretch/Shrink Game Window".

Thank you

If you use a rune spell, is it ok to just use the rune on the screenshot or do you prefer pictures where the rune is used from hotkey in a way the text appears on the screen "Using one of X magic wall runes"?

Doesn't matter that anyone is on it, you can cut out eqs and you can use runes

Animated gifs won't work on Mmotter I believe. Size doesn't matter (or at least not for screenshots).

With the hotkey sounds more clear

Heeey...

I uploaded my first entry but idk why this is in .jpeg version since I saved the image as .png :/

.jpeg images are ugly xD can I post the link of tinypic in the description of the photo?

Also I want to know if the size of my screenshot is good, since I didn't used the "full screen" mode and decreases the size of the screen (without cut the scenario, only the border).

Thank u and GL for all

It's converted to 80% JPG if it's over 100kb to increase loading speed. PNG files are typically 3/4 times larger. I know it's not always the best solution but the screenshots on ML for example are really slow. We did optimization in the past and I think with the solution now we have more or less instant loaded screenshots, which is nice when you want to browse through them.
