Basically a few days ago I floated the idea of us just making featured contracts ourselves. Then we can send them off to Clemens/IO and they can use them or not, but either way we’ll get a bunch of cool contracts at least. It’s very much a thrown together thing and we’re just trying it out so
The previous thread talking about the idea is here HMF Featured Contracts Proposal (Season of Pride)
The prompt for this batch will be WILD HUBRIS (basically a synonym for pride, just sounds cooler). The soft deadline for submitting contracts will be the end of the Season of Greed (May 9th).
Please try to keep your submissions to the format
this will just make them easier to sort later.
There is not a limit to the number of contracts you can post (within reason) but obviously only one can be picked per person
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please try and save your likes on posted contracts for ones you’ve played. View it as your mark of quality. Try to avoid just liking because you like the person who’s posted it
What are HMF Featured Contracts?
Exactly the same as regular featured contracts of hitmans past that have run on HMF. Just this time we’re being slightly more proactive as we rather miss community featured contracts that have been absent from H3 so far.
They will be sent off to IO in time for the Season of Pride and we are hopeful they will be included in-game (although Travis has seen this and commented on it stating IO is very busy currently, so there is very much no guarantee of this, merely hope)
This is an extremely cobbled together so not everything is worked out yet and it’s unclear the quantity of contracts this will draw or the final selection process. But we have a month to sort it out and refine it. It’s better to try and fail, right?
Wait, so if Clemens isn’t picking them, who is?
Yes, so these will be picked in some shape or form by the community then sent to IO. We ran a poll and the general consensus was that some form of moderation/curation would select the best contracts. The system/people by which this will be done is still up in the air, though we’ll try to find a decent and varied selection (through both platforms and types of contract players).
But to also ensure everyone has a say in the selection we encourage you to save your likes on posted contracts for ones you’ve played and believe are quality contracts. This will let us have a more accurate view of the overall opinion of the posted contracts and may play into the final decision (again the decision process is very much up in the air at the moment)
Anyways, that should be all and have fun making contracts!
(Also it should go without saying that if you have grievances with IO or the current roadmap/featured contracts this is not the place to air them. This thread should remain simply about talking about contracts we’ve made)
