    Instructions: you need to cast at least 2 votes on this poll. First one to define the type of Techtree contest that we should have (Paired or Solo), and the next one to vote for one or more themes that you would like to participate with. After poll expires (8 days) the type of contest selected, with the most voted theme will be hosted. You are not required to post your reasons to explain your vote, however it is strongly recomended.

    Contingencies: if theme or type of contest ends up in a draw, a shorter new poll will be started lasting (3 days).

    The themes taken from the Theme discussion thread.

    Contest Type Description
    Solo Single author for each entry, no collaboration besides the traditional testing and advising.
    Paired Contestants can join solo or with a team mate. In other words Optionally Paired.
    Theme Description
    Alliances Create a new faction based on an alliance not seen on the vanilla (Original) Factions of Warcraft (Example: Tauren and Human, Gnolls and Orcs, etc...)
    Alternate Timeline Describe a single or series of closely related events that have changed your timeline. Then create a faction that would exist in the present time on that alternate world. The faction and all its races must be already present in vanilla Warcraft, so no extraterrestrial beings nor races that are foreign to the Warcraft Universe.
    Ancient Race Create a faction that describies the origins of any of the vanilla W3 races. For example Night Elves pre-Sundering, Hunter Orcs in Draenor, etc.
    Elements Create a faction based on an Elemental focus, using one or more of the four base elements (Fire, Water, Earth and Air).
    Evil Faction Create faction that is a pure evil. Dark spirits, demons, mad scientists, or maybe a great looking civilization of light worshiping people that is corrupted from inside. "Evil will always find a way"
    Improved Melee Continue the evolution of one of the 4 main factions and enhance its techtree. Remnants of Undead and Night Elf, Humans after rebuilding their kingdom, Orcs after stabilizing and creating a new civilization, etc.
    Mirror-verse Reality turns upside down! Down is up and the poor become the rich. Take one faction from the Warcraft universe and shift their alignment. If they were evil before, now they're angels or vice-versa. Eg: The Burning Legion becomes the Shining Legion.
    Nomad Create a faction which their main system is like the Night Elven or heaven's fall's Zear Fallen in that their race has mobility at their side.
    Revolution Take one of the secondary races within the 4 W3FT vanilla factions and make a fully fledged Techtree for them. For example: Ancient's Army, Tauren's Clan, Dwarf Principality, Nerubian Kingdom, etc.
    Techno-magic Advanced technology meets magic! Reinterpret one of the vanilla factions as though they would exist in a futuristic universe where magic and science exist side by side. Example: Dalaran Corporation.

    Subscribing. If a good theme is picked, I might join (and finish for once hopefully).

    DON'T VOTE FOR THE TITLES, PLEASE.

    THANK YOU.

    ALSO DON'T BE LIKE CHAOSY. IF YOU ONLY HAVE TWO OPTIONS, PLEASE PICK ONE ONLY FFS.

    We still love you, though, Chaosy.

    Alright, pretty much exerted my vote.
    May the best one win.

    Oh and that's pretty much expect-able of Chaosy. Everyone loves you for that :p

    Voting for SOLO and ELEMENTS.

    Do hope elements win because mah mind is spinning with ideas about this theme.;)

    Also,I see enthusiasms everywhere,but I'm not sure who REALLY will enter. Because people will say they are going to take part but didn't in the end. More people gives me more spirit to actually enter contests.

    I would suggest even if it doesn't end in a draw that another poll is made with the top 3 choices so people who voted for the choices that didn't make it to the top 3 can recast their votes. We will get a better picture with the results that way.

    I do wish it was an open poll but oh well. Voted for Paired and Alliance. I really thought paired option would attract more attention since it is really time consuming for just one guy to finish a full techtree.

    Believe me as a guy who did a paired techtree contest, it only complicates things and actually ends up taking more time because you constantly need to communicate with each other and allign your ideas together.

    What do you mean by open poll? Currently you can see who voted for each theme by clicking on the number of votes it has, or are you refering to a poll where you can change your vote?

    PS: I also wanted to have this contestes Optionally Paired, have more flexibility on the the teams bringing more people to the contest. I know people that would only joined with a partner due to time contrains.
