8-Bit Author Tournament

"Ready to Fight!" 8-Bit Author Tournament originally started Early 2016 as an open-ended comic where authors could create/use created characters to fight in one-on-one battles. Today, the comic has evolved into its own kind of experience, featuring new faces, old locations, and questions better left unanswered.

Amazing update.

I'd hold onto this guy, he makes some of the best comics for this comic. Though here are some of my critiques:

1. It shouldnt be called "8 bit" if half the comic is drawn.

2. In fact, in a general sense, due to the tone of the comic, "Author" shouldn't even be in the name, nor should tournament (it's a tired trope here on SJ to have tournament in the name) and restricts the overall premise of the comic to ONLY a tournament. If you plan on ending the comic right after, that's fine but it doesn't give readers any twists or ongoing conflict to look forward to due to this formula. In my opinion, it should be able to have a cast that can be put into several different plots and situations.

3. Just my opinion, but I would rename the comic, if you want it to still be seen as a collab, then just keep the accepting author applications part there but otherwise I dislike the name, for reasons stated above.

@Charley The Fox: Glad you enjoyed the update!

We appreciate your simple critiques on the name. When the comic started off (back in early 2016, geez), it was just that: a co-author comic that revolved around 8-bit sprite styles (Mega Man, Kirby, etc) in the usual tournament gimmick.

Now that the comic has turned into something different from what was initially anticipated, it seems like a name change is long overdue. The only issue I have is just what else to call the comic. The comic is still a collab and still accepts co-author applications, and the tournament style setup will remain mostly the same, albeit with a lot more organization and extra stuff thrown in so as to not get the formula stale, but since almost everything has been changed up, it's hard to say what would be an interesting name. Nonetheless, I'll have a look into what to name the series post-Arc 1 or earlier.

Once again, thanks for your interest in the comic!

@Brawlitup99: Thank Punchy, I came because I liked his style in other comics, though the rest of this comic.. intrigues me.
