It was discussed and decieded among some of the mods/modelers/texturers that this contest should begin now before summer ends for most people. It makes sense now that modeling contest 17 is over and all we are waiting for are poll results.

If you are looking for a partner, a recruitment thread will be open for 1 week, you can find the link above in the first post
 
Can you please change the criteria to something more appropriate? The texture needs to be half of the points, seeing how it's a paired texture/modeling competition, so each person has even point responsibility. Also, can you get rid of the line "...(or how well Blizzard skins have been used)" It doesn't make much sense in this situation.
Good luck everyone. I'm hoping to see some mighty good model coming out of this.

I think it should be like this:

  • 15 points mesh,
  • 10 points anims,
  • 5 points effects,
  • 30 points texture(this will be divided by the judging criterias of the texturing contests),
  • 5 points mechanics and
  • 5 points creativity

Team #3 General frank and M0rbid. Omg. Wow. I suppose these 2 will win. Just think about it. General frank, the legend among modelers, and m0rbid, a good skinner, and creator of the great dalaran building skin. excellent... :D

Thats what you think but when I get my texturer I'll give it my all ^^

Is it so? I declare war on you! HA! I'll join the contest then too! I'll make an Hero, carrying 30 hammers, and 1 dagger, make him carry the armor not even nukes can make a scratch, When he burps, it'll create sumthin' like Atomic atmospheric cloud that devours even shit (^^), Archimonde with his Divine armor and powers looks like me singing compared to Benjamin Burnley singing, We'll make the texture be better than the texture my mesh uses in real life, he'll eat thunder, and crap lightning... wait... it's otherwise, eat lightning, and crap thunder. Terminator, Tony Montana, Rocky = pussies compared to this guy, I'll make an animation that rick rolls other units in Warcraft 3...

2.5 seconds later...
Ah... I forgot I don't even know how to animate and make models... And my texturing abilities are... well... humble. I suppose I'll need more practice. :p
