    "You are very welcome to make a short statement what you like the most, so contestants get a bit of public feedback!"

    all entries are GREAT!!!

    subjetive feedback, dont take it serious.


    Jetfang Inferno: spells

    Desacrate and Anihilate: I really like the detail of those spells, the star lines, and the other symbol, very awsome.

    Mythic spells:

    Fountain of souls: very interesting, the beauty of the center fire ray, and the minor fire auras going here and there, like tranquility keeper of the grove spell.
    Kingdoms come: 1 word awsome.

    Atinous:
    Demonic adorment: I really really like the idea and creativity of this spell. very very unique. not a huge big one, but as a small size spell is awsome.
    Hell Cursed: interesting black-red spell combo effects. I like the black-red organization design of the spell.

    xYours Trulyx spells:
    Gatekeepers pact: I like the fire stomp spell with the Draenei face.
    Infernal Bulwark: I like the fire shield spell, like ligthining shield.

    Tough one :\ Mythic's looks the most polished/smooth but Antinous' seems the most original.

    Generally all are lovely but, one vote is one vote you cynics.

    Fantastic work all around! I, too, find it hard to only vote once.

    Oh, you were thinking of voting one person, than changing your vote on some other or the same one, on and on, eh?

    Hah, really now? I remembered making 2 more accounts back in 2016. Never got caught and I believe Ralle disabled them.

    See? Such well designed is our security that users even publicly confess their wrongdoings.

    I served 4 years in Ralle's private sex dungeon. That's punishment enough for me.

    A lot of great entries for sure, but Mythic gets my vote this time. They are, to me, the most visually pleasing and polished effects. The other ones were great too, keep it up!

    I think y’all are sleeping on Antinous’ creations. When have you ever seen an effect/attachment like Demonic Adornment?! Like, wow, that’s unique and they both work wonderfully in Classic and Reforged. Mythic’s are visually appealig but they are definitively in the Reforged style and would stick out dramatically in Classic.

    That's sweet, but (not being voted for is) deserved. I had to rush my second entry. And that's the first models that I ever done for War3, if one of my entries is ever used by someone, that's already more than I can hope for :)
    I'm new on the Hive, I'll have other contests to prove myself.

    Edit : clarification

    Obviously Mythic's going to win, so I my vote goes to the person who deserves to be a second place, and I voted JetFangInferno. I personally liked Antinous entry too, it's super unique (big plus to that criteria) although the problem is that it's lacking saturation like the rest of the entries. I wish I can vote for two people. Yours_Truly's entry is fine, though both look quite generic (IMO) for me but doesn't mean it's bad. +Reps to all contestants, good luck to all of you!
