So this gets in

But this one doesn't?

WTF




One thing worth noting here is the problems with the submission page. For example, even though one of my entries is up for voting, it was only accepted after significantly cutting the file size (and making the text un-readable in the process). The original, a 2.5mb .png file (limit of 5mb) would not upload properly and was auto-rejected as not being in the proper format.



Since the lammergeier image linked is a ~2mb file, I would not be surprised if it was never even seen by CCP. This is one of the things I've petitioned (about my second entry, another large file), so hopefully we'll get some answers soon.


Which is why it would be good if CCP put up a gallery, or even listed all the files they received so that those of us who entered can get confirmation that we were even considered.

Anything else entered besides those 47 were not acceptable entries to the contest. They were just thrown out, like the Mach 5.


I don't see what is wrong and not acceptable with my entries. 6 views, a colored rendering, the size. What else is needed ?

I smell something fishy, especially as I got the confirmation page saying my submissions (large files <2Mb) were sent and thanking me for it.

I am thinking to open a petition too to get some clarification.

The entries are mostly great, but I'm not participating in the contest. http://noroaelkiota.deviantart.com/#/d35gcan The circumstances surrounding the semifinals are very suspicious indeed, considering some of the 47 (!?) accepted into the vote.
Well, I just bought a years subscription to the game for Christmas and I feel we, mostly the people who doted on the progress of the competition, were cheated.

Not only mine, a lot of entries I know were submitted and received/quality work/within the rules were neglected, while others that follow none of that criteria were put into the pool!.

In botching this competition they have wasted countless hours of work I put into my entry, and valuable time I could have spent with my family over the

holiday's, checking the competitions status instead. I know they received my entry, as well as the following polished ones as they put it an early version on

the initial board they later took down, and the file, on deviant art has been posted in both petitions, and threads. Best of luck to everyone who got in, and for those who did not, an explanation is needed. I'd recommend contacting a CSM. Felon.

It is ridiculous to ask for CCP to explain why each and every image was accepted or not accepted into the semi finals. Just as it was ridiculous when people expected DA to do that. No competitions do that. It would take forever.

There will always be disappointments when it comes to judging art. But contests are supposed to be fun, who cares if you totally bomb in terms of placing or votes. At least you have more experience now and maybe a portfolio piece. To say you wasted your time because you won't win anything is absurd. If drawing/painting/sculpting/creating is a waste of time to you then what the hell are you doing entering an art contest. Of course you'll loose if those things aren't in your heart.

I do however agree that it would be nice to see everyone's entries. That is always a fun part of competitions, to just browse through everyone's work. Even if it was just a "finished images only" forum thread, where only final submissions are posted by those participating, and no BS banter to clog up the thread is allowed. Its how things are done in contests on conceptart.org, Dominance War, polycount, etc...

And I also agree that bringing facebook into a competition is a bit of a bummer. I know why they did it, for exposure. But I would rather see the CCP art team have the only vote. They are in the best position to vote for designs that would work best for EVE. They did the second best thing though, by pre-screening the images AND having the final say. Also, CCP should get something from this too. And since they stated they can't use the winner as an in-game design, promotion/marketing is all that remains.

It would be nice if they continue to do these contests later on down the road, with some changes, as a way to farm out concept art work and reward the winner with a freelance contract for their image. New designs for CCP, professional work experience for the contest winner. But with how much people complain about both contests I doubt they'll do another one.

Oh well. Still looking forward to flying the "Tornado" one day. Minmatar FTW! Cool

The issue isn't about any specific entry, it's about three things:


1) A pattern of rejections that makes no sense at all. It's not like we're talking about entries which were clearly below the level of the ones which were put up for voting, these were solid entries even if they weren't destined to win the final prize. The Lammergeier is the perfect example: a ship that was very popular with the community isn't even eligible to be voted on?


2) A general impression that the pre-screening phase would only be filtering out the junk (joke entries, stuff that isn't appropriate for EVE, entries that break the rules, etc) that was so common in the deviantart contest, not judging which ones were "good enough" to be voted on. After all, this was supposed to be a contest for community voting.


3) No clear indication of whether entries were received at all. This is a major problem, the submission page did not work properly (legal entries were auto-rejected for having an "invalid" format) and the gallery of submitted images was not updated frequently enough. The end result is people wondering (for good reasons) whether their entry was even seen by the judges at all.

"Due to the number of satisfactory entries to the Finalvote contest, we at CCP decided to slim down the number of presented entries based on additional levels of quality and originality. Ships may not have made it due to likedness to other existing ships, level of detail, or etc. We acknowledge that many more entries were entered that meet the requirements of the contest, and what we plan to do about these additional entries is THIS.

Thank you to all who entered."
Note: I don't work for CCP, and CCP didn't actually write that message. It would be great if they did though.

It doesn't take long to provide a feedback note, that took me less than 5 minutes to type. Granted, I know English isn't everyone's main language, so typing and getting translation may take longer.
But replying to every entry in a single manner isn't required. Once a post like that is made, people can wait until THIS is done, and then specify further if they have questions.

This problem also isn't limited to this contest, or the last DA starship contest, which is probably why there is a significant amount of distaste for it.
But as I also say, at least CCP tries to hold cool contests like this for us, which many game companies won't even attempt, most of which because they don't care. When I make these responses, it's not because I dislike CCP. I know they have a lot going on, most of which I will probably never know - for instance, the time it takes to make translations, and proper ones at that. But it IS something that has always been a downside to their contests, and should be improved upon.

Next time, I'm just gonna have to have a better graphics card so I can detail every nook and cranny of my ship so that it can be on par with the rest of these entries, and maybe learn how to use my paint programs to make those kickass backgrounds. I wish I knew how to do that, lol.
But yes. Next time one of these contests are held, if I decide to enter, I'm going to have but one goal. To collapse the EVE market. I am going to build a starship so Freaking COOL, that the supercapital market will crash, because Supercapital and Titan Pilots will abandon their starships, even if they have alts, to fly my ship.

Just you mark my hamsters on that.

RE: Merin Ryskin,

I expected them to do more than just filter out junk submissions so I wasn't taken by surprise there.

I will agree with you however that this was to be a revote for the EVE community, and this aspect was lost and replaced by CCP and facebook. And I agree the submission system was weak. I also think there wasn't enough advertising for the start of the contest, not enough time for people to create new ships, and having it during the end of the year madness was unfortunate.

Though I honestly wouldn't trust the EVE forum community to pick the best ships, and I think CCP-only is the best way to handle this sort of thing, I remember that we were promised to have a community vote so I now understand why you are unhappy.

I also sent a file that was below 1 MB .... I'm pretty f#%king ****ed off right now - CCP you failed to produce a what should have been a basic 'upload picture here and we'll display it' contest. DA stuffed up over what constitutes good design, but you CCP have definitely stuffed up with your handling of this competition and more so with your programming of the submission site - that doesn't say much for your programming abilities for EVE Online.

I've got two accounts which I sorely want to cancel now (no you can't have my stuff) definitely will one... I don't know, its not like I play the game anymore - I log in, do skills, get out. Then go play TF2, BC2, L4D2 or any other game (boy there is too many cheap games on there!) on steam.

Oh, and I think it would be great if a player wants to organize a ship design contest for ISK or a ship or something. If someone organizes something I will do my best to participate even if the rewards are small. And it would be interesting to see if the contest is a success or a miserable failure. Twisted Evil

Also, anyone notice that the order of the ships on the voting page shuffle around sometimes? Are they ordered by number of votes? Because mine is steadily moving towards the bottom. Haha. Abandon ship, shes going down... Twisted Evil

This is, sadly, turning out to be an even bigger mess than the Deviantart contest. Did CCP even receive all the entries? Would they even say if they didn't? (probably not). Seems like they're not following their own criteria on accepting submissions. On another note, I would have loved to have seen the full roster of submitted ships, if only just to look at. Facebook requirement was a majorly bad move.
P.S. Love the Lammergeier.Cool

Generally, I am not this big of an ass... ok that is a lie; I am.

Here is the deal.

The complaining is pointless. I hope to God, none of you are about to enter the working world, and if you are already in it you should know better.

The entry you put in is your resume of sorts. Thousands of resumes a day go through a medium sized company and are trashed so fast they never get more than the first lines read. We are talking simple text docs, not complex images. This is common practice and you will never hear a thing from the company you applied to. This is simply how it works. If CCP decides as a corporate entity to trash entries, that is their call. They don't have to send you a letter or call you and explain. If you are not familiar with the "Art of EVE" book you should look it up. There are actually very specific design descriptions for each race, even down to how the curves in Amarr ships are supposed to start and terminate.

As for the relentless complaining regarding the PNG files. Here is an original thought; try a different browser or convert the image to a different format.

Is Facebook the best way to vote, no - we have established that. Further bashing of that will not change the outcome.

I guess my ultimate point here is, the second contest was a gift, another opportunity. This contest entitles all of us to nothing other than the option to have the Art team see your work. Case and point. I hired an artist from the dA contest to do some ship model building side work for me. My life will continue after this and I will keep doing my own stuff; better for having tried than not.

The point is that CCP explicitly stated that large .png files were a legal format for the entry, therefore it is perfectly reasonable to blame CCP if their system fails to accept a legal entry. If CCP was not capable of creating a submission system which could handle large .png files, then they should not have chosen format rules which made them legal.

True if you rock the boat, you usually risk your job or ability to get freelance work. Having done freelance 'favour' work for people I can't really comment on it since it wasn't for cash obviously. Though if we don't complain, I wouldn't have gotten a pay rise (after inquiring for the over due pay rise, the complaint from me came after the offered pay rise was presented (which was very low) - the complaint worked immediately to bump the pay rise to the correct amount since it was obviously a very insulting pay rise from a very tight arse management.. and they knew it. ugh

If you don't speak up - you don't get what you want or even deserve. It may break the illusion that everyone is happy. Don't let bosses walk over you.

That said - there are more people out there more talented and definitely more hungry than you & me ('you' being everyone else out there reading this) - a boss might say think this "why should I waste my time with your complaints? YOUR FIRED :)"

EDIT: That said - it is a bit of a fear tactic - it could be as big a hassle to get a new employee than maintaining the current ones.

But hey I didn't do the competition for a job, if someone liked my work enough to contact me for some freelance I would have been contacted already. I did it for the great feeling of people seeing my ship that I made, appreciating it & commenting on it... and also the chance for some prize money of course.

I'll probably die poor but if I can make something one day that people can appreciate - that's something I hope I can do.

Does anyone have a screen shot of the rules that were displayed on the front page of the contest? I'm having a bit of a flamefest on general CCP Starship contest... CCP couldn't run a tap of water if it tried

Anyway, I seem to remember CCP kept certain rules from the first contest (things like displaying ship length, don't display EVE Online logos etc) but that is no long displayed on the first page anymore and the link to the rules doesn't have it (anymore or it wasn't in the official rules??)

I'm too annoyed and aggro right now - its amazing, I haven't been this annoyed since I lost my first ship ha. I'll be leaving soon enough.

I think it would do some of us well to remember why we play EVE. For most of us, it isn't to compete in contests like this. Granted, these sorts of contests ARE FUN, and I'd like to take a moment to thank CCP for throwing them for us, via their own time and effort and through forming partnerships with companies such as J!NX.

That doesn't mean that I don't feel disgruntled. And I know complaining about these things WON'T change the outcome of this contest. Yet, the problems in this contest aren't isolated to this contest (After playing EVE for 3 years, I've seen my small share of EVE contests), and do disrupt the honest efforts of EVE players. That's why I and several of my other capsuleers (although not all of us) speak up about it, because we'd honestly like to see these problems taken into account, and better handled in the upcoming contest.
Again, that's not because we hate CCP, because we don't. Are you disgruntled at CCP? Put yourself in their shoes - all the time frames, having to help other people with their contests, in game and out of game (ADIDA will be at the Trade Event on the 9th of January). Think about it - they might have an event committee, help promote each others events, and etc. Sometimes, you might get stuck on the raw end of no one supporting yours, or at least, not with as much help as you need.
So for me, a lot of the problems I see can be resolved in the planning stages;
1. Give more time for the contest (which would let more people enter, especially when the contest is held during the last 2-3 weeks of a college semester, and the deadline is the 2nd day of my Country's typical Final Exam Week)
2. Give yourself a grace period between publishing entries, so that people that have entries that may need minor adjustments to fit the rules, can be addressed.
3. Answer Emails sent about the contest. Maybe within a few days, would help.
4. Make a rule about patience, and update your thread about progress, so that people know what to be patient about. I mean, EVE is a game. People pay money to play EVE. This is a contest relating to EVE, for EVE, for those players. It's a nice gesture (and again, thank you), but that's still who it is for. So having a good community involvement that draws out the contest a little more is much more important than having a quick, decisive contest that sticks to all the deadlines. And yes, I'd rather risk losing placing so that myself and other people can make that late entry with a few changes to better fit the rules, if and when need be. And if it is in the rules that CCP holds the right to do that, then there shouldn't be any legal concerns or rule concerns, which I know has to be of concern since CCP admins work for a company.

I'm not trying to be staunchy or anything, but I honestly feel these things would help the contest run a lot smoother for everyone involved.

What do you guys think?

In my opinion, CCP needs to allow for voting for these ships to be done on the EVE-online website in some form. Many players do not have a Facebook account to "like" a design and by shamelessly getting in bed with Facebook and their rampant anti-privacy/data mining activities this precludes many EVE players from being able to vote if they do not want to be forced to join Facebook. If this unfortunate choice of voting method cannot be changed for this contest, then I strongly urge CCP to not use Facebook for voting on things in the future. This is EVE, not Facebook, and votes should be taken and tallied on the EVE-online website for all players to use since we already have accounts here.

And what about all us that aint lame enough to use facebook? Whats suddenly wrong with the usual voting system? Will the CSM also change to this crap? Or just other game changing votings to **** of more people?

Plus as mentioned before. CCP got no clue if the voters are EvE players or not. The WoW community could easily as a joke vote in the worst ship ever for fun.

What an epic fail. The CCP person responsible should really reconsider his or hers job. Unless their boss is already doing so.

We can only hope this contest gets cancelled and remade doing EvE accounts from the start.

right okay....

1) as much as you might have thought this was a bonafide way of possibly being hired by ccp for designing artwork and new ships etc.... its not going to happen! this is a community and marketing strategy. the fact you're voting on facebook clearly shows that CCP wants to use this competition as a modern method for a marketing and advertising campaign.

yes it partially alienates core Eve players and i understand that, but CCP feel the need for whatever reason to get EVE more facetime to more people. why do u think CCP gave good money to get the front cover of a PC gaming magazine?

2) sooo many emorage posts on here from people complaining about either their stuff not making it or others making it without sticking extremely rigidly to the rules of submission are just absured! if your entry doesnt fit into one of the 4 races stylistic details and forms then unless ur going to show them where itd fit in the game like this one that got through - The Interbus dont expect it to make it! the art department have done pretty well so far in eve knowing what works and what doesnt. i would personally hate it if eve art and design became as rediculous and horrendous as Second-Life.

another thing is one of the rules stipulates work must be original and cant have been submitted to any other contest of the same type. and yes that means the deviantart one... so yahh complain all you want about your resubb'd deviantart/ccp entry but CCP are seeing this as a separate contest! otherwise im pretty sure the Tornado matari entry would have been resubb'd and in the semi's too!

3) some of the emorage directed to entrys that made it with "views that arent of the same model"... yes they are! and wtf cant u tell whats being showed in the differing views?? most of the time theres text to tell you why the views differ ffs! and tbh 3d artists really do appreciate that you're showing additional semi hidden geometric information that would be difficult to see in the typical 6 views

so calm the f*** down and be rational, and if u cant do that, then take it like a man and dont flame!

you have some dubious points.

first, there were ships in submission phase worthy of being selected, but aren't there anymore. look for Stahvogel. so, why is good art being omitted if this is marketing effort?

reason can't be because it was in previous contest, as some ships that can be voted for now, have been in DeviantArt contest. even tho rules do in fact state that ship should have been made for this contest.

originality can be discussed. it should be easy to spot Myrmidion and Thorax in the semi-finalists. as for "4 races stylisitc details", there is a sleeper cruiser.

imo, most people have been quite calm, except for facebook voting issue. so, if you want people to be calmer, don't come with oil.

edit: clarified

I have to strongly echo the sentiments of excluding all non-Failbook users. It makes those of us players who can't/won't sign up or use Failbook connect.

What aren't our credit card numbers and payment services as good as the players on Facebook?Wink

I understand when something like J!nx is hosting a contest that you have to be registered with them, but why do I have to sign up and use a totally foreign service to vote on a contest you are putting on?

I know someone else has probably ranted on this already, but this thread passed TL,DR several pages back.Confused
