    Yeah there's one thing when it comes to teamwork and communication, and then there's just keeping things nice and streamlined. Instead of having to send any small requests about UV or Model changes, having to explain exactly what is needed, sending revisions back and forth and then finally downloading a fixed mesh, it instantly just becomes an annoyance when I instead could just do that exact thing myself in a matter of a few minutes.

    Then there's also the timezone issue, I'm in sweden and Dire is in Canada. If I need a change to be made in order to texture properly I could have to wait for like eight hours for that to be made instead of just, again, fixing myself.

    I'm with you guys that the UVWrap is somewhat of an ideal 'gray area', but in regards to Time Zones... That's kind of the rub with these Paired Contests. Many of us are clustered in either Europe, America, or (increasingly) the Philippines, and necessarily there is some issue with time-zones & communicating. Just kinda comes part-n-parcel with the whole genie gig running a Team Contest on an international forum.

    I have a question regarding the model's polycount. Do we have a polycount limit?

    I'm so glad too. Really looking forward to it.

    Nope, don't think so. But unessecary polies tend to lose points in the mesh part. It will also increase the likelyhood of not fitting into wc3 as good as a more low poly model would. But basically you have free decision space.

    Exactly. There's no explicit limit, but you have WC3 as a reference, and unnecessary polies are unnecessary.

    And keep the wips coming :)

    Since it is named Goribal, we can assume it might be Sargeras. That or a look-alike :']

    What an interesting strategy..
    I suppose one could muster up a texture and have a modeler just wrap around it as well..

    I mean.. while it's fine if you want to adopt that method of doing solo work before finding a partner, consider your teammate might want to participate of the idea before putting up the model.

    How about you two team up xD

    An eye of sauron? :p Very detailed texture :)

    I've only done half of the texture anyway so if I find someone with an idea I could work with, it won't be hard to move on to that one. The Trade Prince is too adorable(or gross) to scrap though..
