    Recycle, Revise, Reinvent
    Expand on a race you have created in the past! There is no limit to how long ago you began. Previous entries are accepted. It's all about the level of refinement and quality of ideas. There is no design theme, merely a directive to create a well thought out race. This means you may also start from scratch.

    Welcome to the poll for Advanced Techtree Contest #1 - Recycle, Revise, Reinvent! Please read through the rules before voting!

    • Each user can only vote once in the poll.
    • You cannot vote for yourself. If a voter has the same IP as the author then the vote will not be counted and it may result in the disqualification of the entry.
    • You cannot create multiple accounts to vote for an entry in the poll. If a voter has been found to be using multiple accounts none of the voters votes will count in the final result.
    • You cannot bribe users for votes. Contestants who break this rule will be disqualified and given negative reputation.

    • First Place: 25 reputation points and your entry on an award icon
    • Second Place: 15 reputation points and an award icon
    • Third Place: 10 reputation points and an award icon
    • Remaining entries: 5 reputation points for each final entry

    Theme How well the various elements of the Faction (including aesthetics, gameplay & design) fit together in a thematic manner such that they feel like they are representative of the given Faction, as well as that of the chosen Contest Theme. Well-fitting & polished aesthetics which complement a cohesive theme will be graded well; poorly-considered or lacking thematic elements will result in a poor score. 15
    Gameplay How well the various elements of the Faction work together to achieve the tactical synergy & gameplay style the Faction has, as well as how efficiently each element performs its particular function. Strategic systems that endow an identity to the Faction, comprehensive & well-though-out roles which complement a cohesive Faction will be graded well; ill-considered, insufficient or over-compensating roles will lose points. 30
    Balance Indicates how comparable the Faction is in terms of 'playability'; i.e. the ideal Faction should win/lose 50% of the time against others of it's class. Overpowered or Underpowered units/heroes/abilities/etc will result in a poor score; properly balanced elements will result in a good score. 15
    Creativity How original the design of the Faction is in terms of innovative ideas, clever implementations, or creative concepts. Innovation and creativity will be rewarded; extensive re-use of existing elements in vanilla factions & poor originality will result in a poor score. 15
    Development Should you reuse material from the past, particularly a previous contest, your work will be judged based on how you have progressed since then. Do not expect to score well in this area if you have not made substantial improvements. 15

    Inviting your friends to vote for you, bribing random members with rep and otherwise cheating with the VB poll system will get you DISQUALIFIED, BANNED from future contests, -REPPED, and possibly INFRACTED. So don't do it!

    This includes, but is not limited to, sending PMs out to various users, getting other people to send those PMs, advertising this contest on other sites with the intention to gain more votes (whether it is explicitly stated or not), and so on. If you are suspected of cheating, the staff will notify you and interrogate you (hopefully) over PMs. <3​

    The Draenei race felt the most complete and well implemented.
