Based on the opinions of those that I have asked to test the level I made, I have mixed feelings about it. More of a "7/10" average and not even in the top ten. Either the entire competition is harsh (A lot of good levels) or they are messing with me when I ask. I am nervous because of this. Good luck to all who participated.

Then again, an average of mostly 7/10s out of 47 levels would be technically better than an average of a 6.2/10 out of 83 levels.
I mean sure if the levels are that good it can become quite harsh, but since it doesn't seem to be all of them, this actually not only scares us, but possibly a couple of other participants as well.
Then again, there haven't been any mentions of any bad levels yet so I guess it's just the intensity of hope that we made them good with long going effort.

I wonder if getting a low place in the contest would mean anything if the competition is that hard. Would that event be such a hard blow to the self esteem of someone?

If scoring low results in a loss of self-esteem by someone they shouldn't have entered in the first place

I don't know about other people, but for every single community contest I've entered, I never really expected to get in the top 50%. I've always just submitted a level that I thought would be fun to play through in the inevitable Tower of Biased episode.

Blasphemy! How dare you both! My respect for y'all just went down a major amount.

Also, Valterri, while AM2R's soundtrack is not perfect, how can you say that it's organic, atmospheric tracks should have sounded more like your electronic beep-boops? M2/AM2R takes place on a world dominated by nature, so why in the heck do you use so many artificial-sounding instruments for your tracks?

So far I've played and written down my initial impressions of 26 levels, so I'm about halfway done

and man this contest has some real bangers but also some levels that aren't all that great.

One thing I have to commend this contest for, though, is that there seem to be more unique levels than in previous contests.

Good golly, I get seriously bad vibes when a level is considered one of the worst.
Welp, there goes the smbx community's level design again...

Bad level afoot? Well, there was bound to be a dud in there somewhere. That said, if the level quality has been consistently good this time as we've been lead to believe then a dud in there is gonna be a SERIOUS dud.

This contest is truly unique. It contains some of the best levels I've seen, but also some of the worst. I wouldn't think so negatively about the community's design as a whole...

And it wards away the ancient fears

I only said that because more or less, it can end up becoming a guess that someone did it, I didn't mean it as a literal or negative impact to the SMBX community's level design.

I feel like there isn't really much to be scared about at this point, sure he said "some" but I don't want to coincidentally guess or predict the future.

When your nightmares are preminitions, it is enough to worry about.
