Tournament of Sims - Best in Genre!

Posted on Mon Mar 18th, 2024 @ 4:08pm by Charles Xavier

Over a year ago, the Ongoing Worlds blog hosted another annual Tournament of Sims. I submitted a series of posts from 2022 to be evaluated by a panel of three judges. Their raw scores in the categories of Story, Characters, and Readability were tabulated together and entered against several other X-Men sims and dozens of other sims.

The tournament is very Star Trek dominant, but maybe as much as 1/3 of the entries were not-Trek. We received Outstanding overall and were the ranking sim in the X-Men genre.

Here are the scores and feedback from the three anonymous judges:

Judge 1

Story: 7 Characters: 7 Readability: 8

"Great use of JPs along with some very interesting character introductions leading to a well written plot crescendo.
Could strive to be a bit less cliché in some parts. This sim does a great job with posting was good, I was able to dive in
and know what was going on and who was who."

Judge 2

Story: 7 Characters: 7 Readability: 7

"One thing they could work on is 'setting the scene'. While I could figure out what was happening, sometimes setting the scene helps people looking in through the window. However, overall, this sim is doing things very well!"

Judge 3

Story: 8 Characters: 10 Readability: 8

"This sim does a great job with characters having strong motivations and being believable. The format of the posts and individual tags showed cohesion and that the group works together well.
For the most part everything was under control and happening as planned and there wasn’t a lot for the characters to solve. There were a few typos or spelling errors."

As a reward, here are some vintage superhero candy sticks!
