Achievements

You might have noticed the attack and team achievements were automated this year. We had a little hiccup and so if you don't have the correct attack achievements or a team achievement, don't worry! There will be scheduled maintenance to make sure everyone is up to date. We're still in the process of making the winner badge, donation badges, longest chain badge, etc. We'll announce it when we have! 


Answers to common questions:




  • The site will remain up and be available for viewing just like before, just without the ability to do stuff with attacks.

  • In a few weeks, the Discord start up a thing called Minigames. Minigames are art related games that you can play when Art Fight isn't active. We've currently got 5 different minigames. It'll be announced when they start up!

  • In October/November, we'll be opening signups for our annual Secret Santa, so stay tuned for that!  

  • If you’d like to continue attacking others, a good alternative is an art trade conducted via PM here, our discord, or other platform of your choice.

  • We are still accepting donations! Any donations made during the time between fights will be put towards your donation total for the upcoming fight.

  • Takaia will be contacting those who got art perks shortly.



We want your feedback!


You can tell us what you thought with the 2018 feedback survey.

Want a say in next year’s theme? Tell us which ideas you like! (Please no joke ideas though, it’s a lot to go through)




Thank you all for participating in Art Fight 2018: Tea VS Coffee

Art Fight has ended!

Posted by Rainy on 8 August 2018 12:12:46 PM (Edited by Rainy 1 month ago)

Art Fight has ended! Thank you all for participating. 

Now that the event has ended, you won't be able to attack anymore. However, the site will still be up and you will be able to do everything but attack. 

Please give the moderators a few days to tend to reports and adjust ratings before the official winner is announced. You are encouraged to report any incorrect ratings you see!

Event Extension

Posted by Rainy on 24 July 2018 07:12:37 PM (Edited by Rainy 1 month ago)

Hey everyone!
This is just a quick announcement to say that we are extending Art Fight 7 days to make up for the site being down for the first days. We're sorry about that again!
To clarify, Art Fight will be ending on August 8th, 5:00PM US Mountain (AF time) / 7:00PM US Eastern. The front page has been updated to reflect that. 

Some other things to note: 

  • Don't worry about not getting achivements. We'll definitely make sure you have them in the end. 

  • There's no promise about the search coming back, as it was contributing to the slowness of the site, but for now you can find characters by browsing Coffee's Team Page and Tea's Team Page. You can also ask others in the Discord for characters to draw. We hope you understand! 

  • Some of you have asked what happens when Art Fight ends. When the event ends, the winning team receives a cool badge and bragging rights! You will lose the ability to attack, but you can still interact with others and upload characters. We host some cool minigames on the Discord and also host a Secret Santa! 

  • Also, a reminder that If you see any attacks or characters that are inappropriate or not rated properly, please report them! This helps the Attack Mod team a lot. 

  • Don't forget to check out the official AF2018 stamps on our DeviantART! http://fav.me/dcfz6np & http://fav.me/dcfz58i

Art Fight 2018!!

Posted by Biscuit on 1 July 2018 12:38:04 PM (Edited by Rainy 1 month ago)

Hello Art Fighters! Welcome to Art Fight 2018. We’re all excited for you to participate!

As you already know, the theme of 2018 is Coffee vs Tea!
Apologies for the wait! There's so many of you that the site broke down for a bit. But now we should be kickin' and ready to go! 

New Updates:


  • A new achievement has been added to emphasize team loyalty! You can earn it by making attacks for a single team throughout the entire event. Its counterpart achievement is the traitor badge, which can be earned when submitting at least one attack for each team by switching between them.

  • Rotating banners! We have two banners this year featuring our VIP donators last year. Both banners are located on this post where you can view them. Please do not refresh in order to view the banners, as it slows down the page. We promise there’s only two, and they’re displayed here so you’re not going to miss anything.

  • Two in-fight collaborations, one for each team. Tea Party and Coffee CommitteeDetails can be found at their respective links.


If you’re new here:

Here’s a few helpful links to get you started:

Thank you to Axel for layout, shading, drawing the background, and to the staff for lining and coloring the banners.

Finally! 2017 Achievements are Finished!!

Posted by Takaia on 22 June 2018 08:37:04 PM (Edited by Takaia 2 months ago)

We ended up having to do it by hand again after all the waiting . Because of this, we were bound to make mistakes, unfortunately. If you don't have an achievement you qualify for, check the following requirements and make absolutely sure you actually qualify for the achievement:


- to get the Winner and Team Moon achievements, you must have made at least one attack for team moon and currently still be marked as team moon (light blue username)


- to get the Team Sun achievement, you must have made at least one attack for team sun and currently still be marked as team sun (yellow/orange username)

- to get any achievements for number of attacks, your current total number of attacks must be that number or greater. The available number of attacks achievements are:

   1 attack, 10 attacks, 35 attacks, 75 attacks


100 attacks, 150 attacks, and 250 attacks



To check what achievements you have, go to this URL and replace [USERNAME] with your username: https://artfight.net/~[USERNAME]/stats . Hover over each picture for a description of what the achievement is for if you need to.

If you still think you're missing achievements you qualify for, please report yourself from your profile page. Title the report with "Missing achievements: [USERNAME]" (again, replace [USERNAME] with your username. ) Do not ask for achievements you didn't earn. We will be checking to make sure you earned them!

We are really busy right now, so failure to follow these instructions could result in your report getting ignored or at least very delayed. Getting impatient and sending in duplicate reports will also have these consequences. Keep this in mind.

The new attack category system is here just in time for Art Fight 2018! We hope the categories are clearer, but just in case you still have some questions, we also updated the

Maturity Guides



Over the past few weeks we’ve been working to update our maturity filter guides, along with a few rule changes regarding our body horror filters as well! 
- We’ve edited them to try and make what is allowed without a filter, and what needs a filter, more clear to everyone! 
- We’ve updated and added new visual guides to both the body horror and gore pages, as well as added descriptions of what is and isn’t okay without a filter. 
- We’ve even added a quick “cheat sheet” so you can tell at a glance what needs filtering!
You can go here to see the updated guides!

We've Updated Our Privacy Policy

I know, it's a meme now, but we had to do it. Please go over our Privacy Policy because it's almost completely changed. By continuing to use Art Fight, you are responsible for and agreeing to the new policy.

The home page notification about this will go away in a while, just want to make sure people see it first.

With the help of your feedback via the user surveys, the staff has been working on revisions to the attack categories and attack guide! 
Since Art Fight is just around the corner we were hoping to get a hand from you guys once again but this time with art examples for the guide! We want our examples to show diversity in art style so the categories are clearer!
If you're interested in joining the Guide Art Crew, and providing art for the guide, please fill out this form! Those accepted will gain access to a temporary server focused around improving the guide.

You can apply here!

Art Fight Start Date Confirmed


We recently have confirmed that Art Fight will start July 1st! We understand it can be confusing to new people, so I've made up a little informational thing about Art Fight. 

What is Art Fight?


Art Fight is a web-based graphic art game that was created in 2007 in order to inspire creativity and fun among different communities of artists! The fight lasts for one month each year, usually in the summer, and returns annually.

How does it work?


Players are split into two teams (based on a theme) and "attack" by drawing art for members of the other team. Each attack is worth a specific number of points based upon effort, completion, and detail. At the end of the month, the team with the greater score wins.
Read more here. 

How do join teams?


You cannot join a team yet. You will be able to when the event starts on July 1st!
While waiting, come join us on the Discord server! We're super friendly and would love to have you.


Twitch Streaming

 
We recently started streaming on Twitch for our Featured Character minigame. If you don't know what that is, catch us in the Art Fight Discord and read #minigames-info after you've been verified. Everyday at 8:30 AF time we stream the random selection of the featured character. If you would like to join in, catch us at the Twitch!

Attack Categorization Surveys

Posted by Rainy on 21 March 2018 03:24:55 PM (Edited by Rainy 6 months ago)

As some of you might realize, the Art Fight rating system is not flawless, and needs some improvements. So in an attempt to improve the attack rating system, we were hoping to get some user feedback via surveys! There are currently 2 surveys you can take. 

How do you categorize attacks?


This survey consists of 22 attacks that you will be categorizing yourself. Please categorize the following art pieces based on how YOU think they fit each category. Please do not refer to Art Fight's category guide for this survey. We want to see how you categorize attacks by your own standards. You can take the survey here.

How do you want to see attacks categorized?


In this survey we're trying to gather information about how people feel about our current categorization system as well as get everyone's opinion on potential changes. Take the survey here.

Thank you for participating in our surveys! Your feedback is extremely valuable to us.
