    Default Huge rant about WOTDs

    This is it, I've had enough of how Ubisoft chooses WOTDs, this isn't getting out of hand, it IS indeed out of hand already. If any Ubisoft staff reads this, don't even try to ignore it.

    To start, Ubisoft has set up some regulations for themselves to choose WOTDs. Things don't seem to work out at all, am I wrong? The WOTDs they choose never ever follow their own regulations. I have been visiting/observing different WOTDs recently and I am extremely disappointed about it. Look at this one, it's a complete joke.

    This is a generic parkour, with pixel arts of turtles that can be copied from Google. It clearly does not deserve a WOTD during these days, if this won during 2014-2015 I wouldn't be surprised.

    There is no bulletin board next to the white door that mentions about the source of the copied turtles in this world. This proves that Ubisoft never bothers to check the contents of the world, or search for the image online. To win WOTD, you can just randomly copy a pixel art on Google, build parkours and nominate it, badum tss~ You won WOTD. If Ubisoft sets up regulations, why don't they even follow it?
    And now, take a look at today's WOTD.

    This world is built by LyveWyre and his friends (Most notably TK69) as a satire to the current WOTD system, it has 2 copied pixel arts from Google and the story is a complete joke that does not make any sense. This won WOTD after 2 days of nomination, this clearly proves that Ubisoft never bothered to check out the content in one's world, their eyes are immediately pulled by the lazy pixel arts, which the world did not mention the source seriously.

    Most notably, we have our suggestions to revamp the WOTD choosing system. The way Ubisoft treats it, is IGNORING them, and continue choosing terrible WOTD's with their terrible team. WOTDs have already lost their value since Ubisoft started choosing WOTDs, as I am writing this, I am in today's WOTD. There are ONLY 7-15 people coming in and out, our WOTDs used to be very full, but now it no longer has its shine.

    There are a lot of good worlds out there that does not have pixel art, but the content in it is worthy of the WOTD title. Take a look at SNOWDALE, built by Anton0202.

    The design isn't really that impressing, you might think. There is NO pixel art in it, but if you visit the world, you'll be impressed by the effort Anton has put in it. It hasn't won WOTD yet, but it is worthy of the title. But the lack of pixel art, is probably why it hasn't won it yet.

    Ubisoft CLEARLY needs a team that consists of good builders that would spend their time to check out WOTDs to determine whether they are worthy.
    Oh, looks like this thread is going to be ignored by the staff anyhow, my rant ends here, this absurd WOTD choosing system needs to come to an end soon.

    I think you should show them what actual building is, show them something good. It's been long since we've seen your worlds anyways

    No hate.

    I can't help but laugh!
    These worlds make me question Ubisoft even more of their capability of choosing WOTDs!

    Cheap blocks do exist, a budget of 2dls can bring a world to life

    It feels like ubisoft doesn’t even have these ideas in mind, regardless of how many times we suggest them, and how many polls we make, that shows that we want some kind of change. I hope this thread wont be another one that’s just gonna die within a day or two.

    Thanks for the kind words btw

    Anton's world is superb, there's also Josh's world TRICKLES. Both of them are incredible and yet beaten by pixel art worlds.
    I won't blame it all on Ubisoft, they're in a very tight schedule since the beginning of the whole duplication glitch thingie, the real solution is making a WOTD selection team, not now, they're busy.

    Just to prove how much of a profit this can be, we built our world for less than 50WLs with everything accounted for.

    As for OP’s point, I agree. Clear lack of quality selections and any sort of statement from staff about this issue.

    I'm baffled at how the first one could be WOTD. I mean, I did build it. In my defense though, it was built years ago and when I built it I didn't envision it to become a WOTD or anything, I was thinking that it'd be one of those parkour worlds like Artemis' and such. Dunno what the heck Edmush did and bam, WOTD. Pixel art IS copied, just google turtle pixel art and scroll down a bit. There were times where these pixel arts weren't bashed so badly, y'know? That was 2015-2016.

    As for the second world, I'll visit it ASAP because I'm curious but is it blatantly put that it's sarcasm or satire? If so then it might be similar to my world SATIRE101 which won quite some time ago as well. If not, then wooooooooooow... okay.

    Of course, I'd be ultra disappointed! Lol.

    Anyway, visited the world -- what a masterpiece.

    Definitely. The way the tiger nuzzles uwu the kitty in the end made me tear up. The ending was executed perfectly with such a homely cottage. I can't believe I'm crying over a world in a sandbox game!
