    • Judge 1
      • I love a tons of different genre, but I mostly prefer fast paced songs
    • Judge 2
      • I’m a simp for genshin/honkai (fan)songs, and I think that songs with a lot of feels will be perfect for playing on a lyre
    • Judge 3
      • I love lo-fi, try to make it with the lyre
    • Judge 4
      • I like simple songs, kinda like classical music. I am particularly fond of Debussy’s music.

  • Here is a brief introduction for our judges, so you know what they like:
    • Judge 1
      • Clean, and organized decoration. Lots of greenery and aesthetic structures with terrain. Consistent general theme.
    • Judge 2
      • Livable interiors with thought to how you would actually live in this house
      • Wildlife areas outdoors (trees, greenery, rocky structures, wildlife)
      • Dedicated viewpoints with good views

    • Judge 3
      • For housing designs, if it’s a more simple concept, like a mansion then what I’m looking for is the formality of the design, the symmetry and/or if it follows its own theme. But when it comes to more broad ideas, it’s not just the concept but how it is executed and blends in within itself.

Event 6 – Interesting Run (Stormterror)

Tired of the same old whale speedruns? Wish you can see more variety than Bennett assisted nukes? Now you can with the KQM Interesting Run Event! You may submit your most creative attempt of clearing StormTerror and a panel of 4 judges will individually select their favorite submission. Enter for a chance to win Welkin rewards! Good luck travelers, may your submissions be full of drip.

  • Prize pool: 4 Welkins for 4 winners
  • Rules
    • Clear Stormterror’s Lair on the highest difficulty available to your account
    • No character, weapon or food restrictions
    • Our panel of 4 judges will pick out one winner each
    • Remember that being unique and interesting is more important than speed here!
  • Here is a brief introduction for our judges, so you know what they like:
    • Judge 1
      • The most scuffed and meme shit ever, something that will make me question my sanity, something like nuke barbara or physical diona
    • Judge 2
      • Meme runs or bug exploits
    • Judge 3
      • I love speedrunning in general, I’ve participated in the 40k speedruns and wanted to be on the other side for this event. I’m a monkey, I love seeing big numbers on screen and dumb strategies that end up working. High execution play like TCF (rip) or Doug strike really please my eyes. Finally I’m an average meme enjoyer, you can (and probably should) abuse that.
    • Judge 4
      • For Interesting Runs, when for say someone puts a restriction on their own run, I look towards how the person beats their own restrictions, not how difficult it was. It’s the creativity on how the person beats the run, not just the idea, or something that makes you think “wow I’ve never thought of that” and leaves you in complete awe.

Event 7 – Fanfiction Contest

Ever read the character story of your character and wish there was more to it? Or do you wonder what Lisa does when she’s not busy climbing, or what Klee really gets up to in the confinement room or what’s really under Kaeya’s eyepatch? Well wonder no further, this is the competition for you! Introducing the fanfiction competition, where budding writers can let their imaginations run wild in the world of Teyvat! Now, you can run the scenarios of your favourite characters on the most powerful graphics chip of all – your imagination. So, what are you waiting for? Drop your socks and grab your crocs and plunge into the vast world of writing!

  • Prize pool: 1BP (first place), 2 Welkins (runners up and third place)
  • Rules
    • Safe for work
    • Has to be genshin related (set in Teyvat, or have genshin characters in the story)
    • One of the top 3 entries must feature Keqing

  • Here is a brief introduction for our judges, so you know what they like:
    • Judge 1
      • Either an interesting and immersive story or just a funny piece that would make me laugh
    • Judge 2
      • I think that a good fic has to fulfill three criteria:
        • Good grammar and organization. I can’t slog through reading a story that’s full of errors, or structured badly, even if the plot is amazing.
        • Coherent “concept.” Fanfics don’t have to be complete stories, but they need to at least be coherent and complete, in a sense.
        • Avoiding cliches; reading a story full of cliches is really boring.
    • Judge 3
      • I’m a sucker for romance or anything that tugs at the heartstrings, do your worst!
