Just a thought, but could it be possible to replace the current Tempest design with the Freeborn design?

I mean the Mealstrom and Tempest look like crap and are pretty much alike. Would be nice to have a Minmatar BS that didn't look like someone spilled a bottle of glue on the design table glueing all the odd bits together at random and then announced "ok, that will have to do for the Minmatar".

What, I don't get to win as a "thank you" for finally getting you to do something about this? Oh well, maybe next time.



But seriously, what happened to the rule that the four runners up would be the top entries from each of the four races? Am I the only one who remembers this rule and sees a slight problem with having two Amarr ships, one no-faction ship, and no Caldari or Gallente ship?

Also, what about the un-specified prize that was supposed to be given to the top entries from the public voting round (the top 20 that went to CCP for judging)? Who are they and what was the prize?

It's good to see that you finally did something about the contest, but there's a serious problem when you don't follow the official rules in awarding hundreds of dollars in prizes.


i think i know what their response to that will be:

problem? ::trollface::

Jesus, what a clusterf*ck. The results are three months late, only two of the four races are represented, one guy came in as a runner-up twice somehow (thereby making a mockery of actually winning), and at least three of the winning designs are so generic it's not true (arguably four of them).

Something here stinks, CCP.

1st and 2nd place kind of look the same.

But i guess you cant avoid that if you go purely by votes.

Looks like we're destined to see a new generation of Amarr vessels that look like floating Apocalypse bows, ahh well, it's CCP's game, if CCP wants the Amarrians to fly bows, the Amarrians shall fly bows. The Myriad though I think is a very deserving place-very very nice looking, though my overall pick would be either the various Vanguards or the Strategic Battlecruiser(both have a niche waiting for them, in my humble opinion anyway) They may not be the best looking, but they certainly have a place in the game at a future date.

JUDGES WERE BIASED!!!

I hope I'm not the only one to note that the winner and several of the runner-ups were Amarrian vessels! We Gallente won't stand for it! Not one of our races super-awesome-omega-prototype vessels were chosen!

Ok... enough RP. If I flew Amarr, I'd be happy right now too =P

Dear CCP,

Please replace the Abaddon model with this:

Abdiel

Now that is what I imagine an Abaddon to look like. YARRRR!!

I really liked that Akula design. Nice twisted Caldari ship. But I since most players seem to prefer symmetric designs it didn't have a chance Neutral

Not to be rude to everyone but every (contest, TOS, EULA, etc) has this magic line.
"Sponsor reserves the right to adjust, expand and clarify the official rules through the duration of the promotion."
Or something to the same effect. So to see the "final" rules you should probably go read through them again prior to complaining.
http://www.evecontest.com/finalvote/officialrules.htm

It seems some are mixing the rules from the deviantart contest and this one. But what do I know I just actually took the time to read both in their entirety. I have only posted this as many complaints are false/defamatory to CCP's image.

Either Way, Congrats to the winners as there were many good submissions to compete with.

miss obvious i think that people here couldn't care less about ccp ability to change rules,but to why they are changed?

it is very simple contest,where ccp stated that win ships gonna be from all 4 races,very nice move to keep even score and justice for game if u ask me,yet it was changed,why?

not in many contest around the world have same man/who ever, is holding multiple win places(don't care much but is slightly strange at least to me)

there is no place where u can found answers about deviant contest winner fate and it seams from this contest too so people are curious what is going on.

but thank you for your effort to enlighten me and few others that ccp can do what it wants with their contest and reminding us they they are just honest and awesome people that we shouldn't question ever i kinda forgot about that. Wink

first i'd like to join in on congratulating the winners too, clearly they put serious effort and care into their designs. hard work is worthy of praise. sincerely good effort.

however, i'm glad to hear these may never be seen in game. the only ship i can marginally stand by is the mentor... but even still there's nothing sleek, sexy, or cool about it. it's just another potato in space... at least it's not completely offensive like the others.

the oblivion looks ridiculous. like a large, red floating head, ripped right out of the final scenes of matrix 3. looks like it belongs in a wax museum or horror show behind a window. you know, the pop scene that scares you and then you laugh? not as a BS in a space game. no, no, no.

the amarr command ship? what the... why? design looks completely ridiculous. just no.

serval battlecruiser: looks like a stiff breeze or foul language would snap a wing, let alone my executioners gatling pulse laser w/ radio s. maybe it should be a scout or shuttle, but certainly nothing that would put such a fragile frame in front of a gun.

finally, the myriad industrial carrier... now if it were a bus... or some sort of civilian transport, like those little shuttles you see zipping around in the amarr stations but no one flies... then maybe... but really people, EVE doesn't need another large, oddly rotund shaped ship trudging thru space. seriously.

seriously.

1. This is the second contest. The Tornado won the first (with far better prizes, I might add)

2. The ships were chosen out of the top 20 by CCP. The top 20 ships that were voted upon by you. Not the full 47. If your ship didn't get in, it's because not enough people liked the same ship (or couldn't stand facebook even just to vote).

3. None of the winners have any influence on CCP whatsoever. That is very very obvious when you consider the fact that the results are three months late. Whatever gripes you have about it, please pour it on CCP, not the contestants.

4. If you don't like the way Minmatar ships look like they'll fall apart at warp 2.0 AU/s, maybe you should've been Caldari, duh. Duct tape über alles <3

And if you think these are bad, try looking at the results of the first contest before the uproar (when Tornado wasn't even among the first set of winners because DeviantArt had no idea what the EVE universe was). Short memories... tsk. Rolling Eyes

If you and everyone else who has complained took the time to read the "rules" and not the BS in this thread you would know the answer to your question.

The first place winner IS going to be in game with CCP reserving the right to change/modify it of course. This is stated in both of the contest's rules. Along with answers to all the other complaints in this thread.

Reading this thread has made me lose faith in what I perceived as a level of "intelligence" to the members of this game. But I see that this game is like every other game ... Full of ******s.
enjoy your day
