Contestants were to create a Troll model e.g. unit or hero. The Troll model had to resemble the style of the Warcraft 3 trolls. The model had to be made in SD for Warcraft 3: Classic.

Mesh
How does the mesh look? How are its proportions, balance, and scale? How coherent is polygon distribution? Is there an overreliance on in-game SD meshes? Do the shapes complement the model's theme?/15

Skin
How good is the wrap? Are the textures appealing, or do they look blurry/stretched from the default game camera and portrait? Do the tones go well together? Is there sufficient contrast?/15

Animations
How natural, smooth, and appropriate are the animations? Do they have physical coherence? Do they have character/personality? How well are they executed? Does the model have enough animations to function properly?/15

Effects
Were the particle, ribbon, or mesh effects made in good measure? Do they contribute to the model? Are they impressive?/10

Integration
How well does the model work in-game? Does it feature the necessary attachments, footprints, sounds, and collisions? Are the attachments obscured? Is the model fully selectable? How well does the it fit in the game environment?/10

Creativity
How original is the general idea? How inventive is the execution? How creatively does the model interpret the contest theme?/20

if you guys don't mind me asking, is there a link for all the previous modeling contests? I know I've been here in Hive since 2013 but I only actually subscribed to the modeling contest stuff
All previous Contests are found here, but you're probably better served using the Contest List thread put together by our very own Vinz (it is organized with links).

Man, bunch of trolls.

I like most of these with various direction you can think of, although I have some itty bitty bias to what stuff i can skin alive out of :xxd: .

You have (in short summary):
  • A Malicious beef-cake power hungry Troll from Grendel.
  • Bwonsamzeus's Pawn without a child name after Norse from Proxy.
  • Zandalari playing the Sparta game from Frostwhisper.
  • What if Malzahar was a troll from Stefan.
  • Troll Assassin decide to use "less coverage more damage" tactic by twilac.
  • Powerpuff girl but from Hell and it's troll by Professor Direfurtonium.
Who win my vote? Nobodies since no forest troll, no votey.

what's the status on this?
That's a... good question. :<

Archian was running this, but I can too, and it looks like... we didn't have any Judges yet? So I guess we are/were waiting for Judges. But perhaps if that takes too long (how long?) we can decide to just go with the Poll (or only count Votes where voters have explained their vote/'reviewed' the entries in some meaningful way).

Which would just lead to another contest where the winner is decided by people who've only barely given the model a glance, and likely only at the submission image. We didn't put in all that work just for it to go completely unnoticed.

That's what requiring a 'review' would do; if all they did was look at the screenshot, that could be considered "insufficient for review (and thus Voting) purposes" & thus not be considered in the Voting.

But anyway that was all just my suggestion for what to do if waiting for Judges takes too long. If Judges show up tomorrow or next week I'll be glad to do things like normal... But are you all gonna be fine waiting a month or 6 months or a year? That's what I meant by "if that takes too long (how long?)".
