Sorry for the delay and thanks for everyone who joined in.

One thing I learned from this is we all see things differently and beauty is in the eye of the beholder etc, so don't stone me to death plz if you think my eye sucks, just consider it a lottery element of sorts. Razz

Anyway...

END TIME ANNOUNCED IN TITLE, DON'T WANT TO CLUTTER FRONT PAGE FOREVER.
I will post to cut it off at the end and post the answers and say who won. ^_^
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, a competition, competitions are fun aren't they?

Well here's the deal, you are going to be presented with a series of images and you have to try and guess what Eve online ship that they look like (Or at least, what I thought they looked like, hence the tricky part) and to see how many you can get right.

All of them look visually something like what they are supposed to be, sometimes in colour, although sometimes colour has nothing to do with it, sometimes it might just be one thing that gets it associated with a certain ship.

I'm a tight sort of person, but it's more then worth it just to see the sort of answers I get. Razz

***NOTE IMPORTANT*** To avoid confusion only the tech 1 base version of any hull was used. Remember this when answering, giving the name of a tech 2 or faction variant will be considered a wrong answer.


1st Prize : 60 million isk.
Runner Up : 1000 units of soil.

All correct bonus prize : Some tobacco and spiced wine.

Hopefully people will find this fun, but anyway...

BEGIN

1st Stage (Easy)

2nd Stage

3rd Stage

4th Stage Final (Hard)

Competition ends when someone gets them all correct or if not I'll give out all the answers in a week or when the thread dies and give 1st to whoever came closest.

I would suggest you put the answers in a passworded zip file on eve-files or some other free host, and give out the password when the contest ends. We'll then know you haven't altered any of the answers since the time of upload. Unless you look at some of our answers and then decide to change your mind...?

Hint: do show info for any ship in-game, and click the orange button to open the new preview window. This lets you spin any ship in the game to your heart's content, from the comfort of your favourite station, without having to buy it first.

That's a grea idea, unfortunately a bit late for that.

Still, it's not too big a worry, noone will lose sleep over 60 mill.

Reckon it's still worth me doing?

Either I can tell you I've scored the whole thread so far, noones got them all right.

One person did considerably better then the rest but still got a few wrong. :p

It's true that there might be some contention with some of the answers but like I say, you knew this when entering that they were done from my perspective, there is no right and wrong but for this competition at least, my answers are the same and are staying the same and that's what it's going to go by, whether there's a popular answer for one that differs to what I put or not.

It probably doesn't matter now. By the way, I updated one of my answers. I knew which ship I meant, but I typed the wrong name Embarassed
