    All the predators and executioners gather in a storm, united by a common thirst.

    Contestants must create a model exhibiting bloodlust. Classic submissions only.




    [​IMG]
    • No submission may violate any of the site rules.
    • All submissions must follow the current theme. If any model does not fit, a moderator will tell you as soon as possible as to avoid confusion.
    • You must show at least one unfinished preview of your submission, before the deadline, as proof that it's yours.
    • Your submission may not be started/made before the official launch of the contest. This includes any animation, meshes, or textures made by other users before the official launch of the contest and material made by users not participating in the contest.
      • Using parts of Blizzard's Classic WC3 meshes and transferring in-game classic animations are allowed, however.
    [​IMG]
    • Judges may not participate.
    • Your final submission must work in-game and be bug-free.
    • Teamwork is not allowed.
    • Must contain the following animations, and more if possible:
      • Stand
      • Attack
      • Death
      • Portrait Animations (whether it's for a camera or a separate portrait model)
    • Structures must include Birth animation
    • Heroes must include Dissipate animation
    • Feel free to ask if you have any questions regarding the rules.
    If a submission does not follow the model submission rules the creator will be disqualified.
    Breaking any of these rules may lead to punishment in the judgement score, up to disqualification from the contest, depending on the weight of the issue. In case of doubts towards a certain rule, you are very encouraged to discuss it in the contest thread so others and judges may help with sorting it out.





    [​IMG]
    • 1st place: 55 reputation points.
    • 2nd place: 40 reputation points.
    • 3rd place: 25 reputation points.
    • Entry: 15 reputation points.
    • Judge: 10 reputation points per entry.
    The three winners will receive an award icon representing the winning entry.

    Mesh How does the mesh look aesthetically? How are its proportions, its balance and scale? How coherent is polygon distribution? /20
    Skin How good is the wrap? Are custom textures appealing? How adequate are the in-game chosen textures? Are they blurry/stretched? Do the tones go well together? /15
    Animations How natural, smooth and appropriate are the animations? If they're custom, how well are they executed? Do they have physical coherence? Do they have character/personality? If they are imported, how appropriate was the animation choice? How hard is it to relate it to the original in that case? /15
    Effects How adequate are the particle/ribbon/etc effects added? Do they contribute to the model? Are they impressive? Are they added in good measure? Did the model need more? /10
    Theme How well does the model exhibit bloodthirst? /15
    Mechanics How well does the model work in-game? Are the animations recognizable in-game? Does it feature attachments/footprints/collisions/etc? Is it fully selectable? /10
    Creativity How original is the general idea? How inventive is the execution? /15
    /100

    Results calculation

    • Judgement: 70%
    • Poll: 30%
    FinalScore = (30*Reached_Votes/POSSIBLE_VOTES) + (70*Average_Judge_Score/POSSIBLE_SCORE)




    [​IMG]
    The contest shall begin on 10th August 2020 and conclude on 30th September 2020 GMT (day is included).

    I know how incredibly unlikely it may seem, for a Jungle Troll building to be considered "bloodthirsty". But I'm sure after you witness my 45-minute thesis presentation on the subject, you may just have your minds changed. Please check under your seats for the 11-page outline of my-*drones on incessantly*

    Because no one is going to waste their time making HD models for free.

    Well I'm sure some people might, but it's orders of magnitude harder to do, so I don't expect to see much, no.

    Why in the name of all evil would anyone encourage blizzard by making mods for their latest fuckup?

    I'll be sticking to classic, like all the other people with standards.

    Y'all need to tone down the rage. I don't like Blizzard's latest decisions any more than most people nor do I think Reforged is a good release, but people can still enjoy modelling for it and it's their right, it does not say anything about "their standards". If anything it shows tenacity and skill, it's not a simple task after all.

    There's absolutely no need for insults or discouragement.

    Agreed. And I'm one of the biggest proponents for Classics mod; you all know I hoped they wouldn't update the visuals since the beginning. They have, too bad so sad, moving on. There's no reason to lambaste those who want to do Reforged stuff.

    Now we're talking! : D
