General AMV Battle FAQs.

AMV battles firstly started in Lithuanian AMV community in 2012. It is a battle event where two or more editors battle between themselves. It is a good opportunity to experiment with a new genre, style, music, or practice some editing techniques with reasonably set amount of time or a quick edit.

1x1 Battle (battle between two editors, one from each side)

- Two editors must decide on one common option – either it is music of their choice, genre, or source they will be focusing on. Alternatively, they can choose everything, in order to completely restrict themselves.
- They can choose deadline up to 3 weeks. It is either 2 days or 18 days. If they choose less than 3 weeks, they can extend time as long as it does not exceed 3 weeks. Both editors must agree on deadline’s extension.
- Once they have completed their works, they need to upload their work anywhere where the video can stay unlisted or alternatively, they can submit their video through our page. They cannot share their video before deadline. After deadline – they are free to do this.
- If one of the opponents misses deadline or drops battle without a good reason, he will automatically get one defeat point and one penatly point, leading him into the “Board of Shame”.
- If two of them misses or drops battle without a good reason, both of them automatically will get one defeat point and one penatly, leading them into the “Board of Shame”.
- It is up to the Coordinator what he treats a good reason. Either it is personal issues, problems with computer or things like that.
- After editors submitted their works, Coordinator will have to update forum topic and discord channel with a voting ability for memebrs to vote for their favorite work.
- All votings will be held only in discord. If the same person votes for two works, the vote will not be counted.

First, you have to find an opponent. Once you agree on battle’s requirements, you will need to fill up the form, which is on our website. After that, please give us 24th to review the battle. One of our staff members will either approve or reject, depending on the battle conditions. Alternatively, you can join our discord and look for an opponent in one of the channels.

Please send your work by fillling this form. Alternatively you can contact one of our staff members to send a stream link to your work. Please ensure that you keep your video unlisted until deadline.

No. Please keep it unlisted/private. Once the battle reached its deadline you can share wherever you want. If you fail to do that, you will be disqualified from the battle and receive one defeat point.

Yes of course! You should not be afraid of trying your skills. Anyone can battle, there is no editing level limits. All matters that if you join, you do not drop/cancel battle without a good reason.

If the battle’s deadline has not been extended yet and you still have time before 3 weeks-time limit, inform your opponent and Battle Coordinator to ask for an extension. If you cannot come to an agreement, you can cancel battle ONLY IF the reason is serious and unexpected. However, there is a little chance that you will easily get away from not getting a defeat and a penatly point. If you think, you are not ready for a battle or cannot guarantee that you will finish on time, do not start. It will be an easy win for your opponent.

The penatly points are the points showing how many times you have cancelled battles, have not delivered on time or otherwise broke the rules and conditions of the battle.

Yes, you can. One penatly point can be easily removed by participating in one 1x1, Collab or MEP battle. That is the only way you can burn your penatly points you have collected.

By doing a public vote in our discord server. All battles will be registered and kept on the forum for the records. All works will be both announced in the forum and discord. As soon as we announce works, we will open voting section in discord server, where members can vote. After voting is over (usually after one week) a winner will be announced in the same topic on the forum with a screenshot-proof of the results.

Unfortunately, this function is not available. If everyone gets a chance to renew their points, those points will lose their value. As soon as you start battling and winning or losing, all points will remain for certain amount of time. Either we will be refreshing yearly, or two times in a year, it will depend on battle’s activity.

★ Hall of Fame - a list of people with amount of won battles. The results are counted in the following order: amount of won battles divided into lost battles. For instance, Editor A has won 5 battles and lost 2 battles (5:2) meanwhile Editor B won 10 battles and lost 1 (10:1) meaning –Editor A gets 2nd place (5:2=2,5 points), Editor B – 1st (10:1=10 points). This board is used to help editors with choosing with whom to battle.

★ Board of Shame - a list of people who dropped/failed to deliver their work on time. If the editor wants to be removed from this list, he will have to take part in amount of battles he has dropped/failed to participate without a good reason. In this case, if he wins, he will not get any victory points in the Hall of Fame board, but he will have less or none penatly points in the Board of Shame. This board is used to help editors with choosing with whom (not) to battle.

In order to maintain order and sense of responsibility, every participant who wants or does not want, will be recorded without any exception.

Yes, each time you win, you get one point of victory in the Hall of Fame and a special award/rank in our forum. As well as we are looking into adding real prizes in the future, it will depend on the activity of the battles and possible donations.

You do how you know it is better for you, as long as we can play your video on our site. If we have issues with playback, we will contact you.
