One of the things that has been consistent across every contestant as they moved on is truly inspiring improvement on all levels in storytelling, art, layout, etc. If there’s one singular thing that I took away from the OCT format as a whole, it’s that it works remarkably well as a format for enforced artistic improvement over a very short amount of time. Everyone I had the privilege of interacting and working with on the tourney discord is an astounding artist and human being and I love them all.
