CB Screenshot Contest: Go off the beaten track in games


In October 2022, the screenshot competition of the ComputerBase community started again after a summer break. Competitions will be held over a period of six months, in which points can be collected up to and including March 2023. This time we are looking for recordings on the topic “off the beaten track”.

The competition is going into the second round

By the 20th day of each month – currently until December 20, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. – all community members are called upon to send a specially taken screenshot on the corresponding monthly topic by email to the initiators GUN2504 and Corros1on. In any case, your own user name in the ComputerBase forum and, optionally, a comment on the screenshot should be sent along.

Off the beaten path – for example where can you find easter eggs? Where do you rarely get lost in an open world or, for me, in a linear shooter?

It is also important that the long side of the screenshot must not exceed 2,560 pixels; however, the aspect ratio can be chosen freely. As usual, the following also applies: recordings already published in the forum are excluded from the competition, as are screenshots from games indexed in Germany. Screenshot programs such as Nvidia Ansel are allowed, but you should avoid time-consuming post-processing of the recordings.

The following six monthly topics have been nominated for the competition:

  • October: “Nature spectacle”
  • November: “In the middle of the night”
  • December: “Off the beaten track”
  • January : “Bobble in construction”
  • February: “That's not a knife”
  • March: “Funny snapshots”

Four votes left until the winner is announced

From December 21st – or earlier , should the 40 entry limit be reached – a week-long anonymous vote will then be launched to rank community favorites. The first five places then receive points. If there is a tie, a draw will be made. At the end of March 2023, the overall winner will be crowned. The ComputerBase team and the initiators of the competition will reward the winner with a little token to be announced in good time.

After the second month, Gesualdo is now leading the rankings, the prevailed with the title picture of this message recorded in Elden Ring (test) on the topic “In the middle of the night” and thus could point to der_mensch2 in second place.
