Welcome fans new and old! I'm here to show off what's new in the brand-new, brought-from-the-dead 8-Bit Author Tournament!
It's been a year (more or less) since the comic began a hiatus where the team couldn't update. Now that I've got the time, resources, skill, and people, the comic is back and better than ever! So, without further ado, let's show off the newest features!
The rules have been overhauled so that they're easier to understand and use to make comics. No more faux HP nonsense, no more constrained fighting. Now you can have as much fun as you want with making your comics!
The deadlines for making comics have also changed significantly. I highly recommend you have a look at the Rules page, especially if you're interested in joining.
All New: Events!
There can now be multiple tourneys running! You can check the Events page to find which tourneys are open to participate in! Over time, this section will get bigger and diversify, but you can still keep an eye on it for your characters!
Which brings me to...
New Challengers Approaching!
From the mind-reading Roland to the sneaky Guffaw and everyone in between (literally, in this case), a new, diverse set of characters have entered the ring, with the roster ever growing! Also included is the second host of the tourney, Arnt!
You can find out about all these characters and more on the Characters page!
That's all for now! Please enjoy all the new pages we've been making! ;)
EDIT: MY GOD HOW COULD I FORGET
There's now a Discord where you can talk about 8-Bit Author Tournament or anything else on your mind! The rest of the team also hangs out in there, so you're bound to get some good conversation. Anyway, thanks for showing up here! We hope you can stay for a while!
