    Inviting your friends to vote for you, bribing random members with rep and otherwise cheating with the VB poll system will get you DISQUALIFIED, BANNED from future contests, -REPPED, and possibly INFRACTED. So don't do it!

    This includes, but is not limited to, sending PMs out to various users, getting other people to send those PMs, advertising this contest on other sites with the intention to gain more votes (whether it is explicitly stated or not), and so on. If you are suspected of cheating, the staff will notify you and interrogate you (hopefully) over PMs. <3​

    Well, it's a sure thing imo.. but not needed, as the votes can be seen. You can also explain why you have voted for that particular entry and state your opinion about other entries too if you wish so.

    Sure, but it's not mandatory.

    I agree.

    To decide the top one I was between Prince Yaser entry and NightStalker entry. Both are great, very worked and hard to compare since once is futuristic like starcraft and the other is more skyrim looking.
    What I really like of Prince Yaser entry is the sky and that everything was made with rocks bricks,is nice the camara, and the use of water.

    What I like of NightStalker is that the city was made with a lot of pieces, it remembered Coruscant from star wars, the hole planet is a city.

    I also liked was RedLord entry (and compared with Prince Yaser here and there), another skyrim looking with those wooden houses and the stone tower that I really liked the detail of those. Also I really like the guy in the cliff.

    Another I like is Bern bipedal babies I really like those hand-made destroyed buildings, the factory remembered me WW warfare, buildings destroyed, snipers hidding, that stuff.

    Neruvatar entry remembers me some kind of terrans conquering a zerg planet, or some kind of metroid game. (great detail of that wild red infested planet).

    So in the end Pallian entry was the first impact, and I said it was an orge-mound from the wip. It could be the second impact or the third impact Third Impact - EvaWiki - An Evangelion Wiki - EvaGeeks.org

    And it is a surprise Mythic entry, since it got second with votes (for the moment), interesting colors, and is quite intriguing the effects done.


    what?? why?? I don´t see any user posting about that, and I don´t recall a statement about you or anybody cheating. Something happened?? because I do not understand. (the poll is going fine, entries are fine).

    Since you did a public statement, It just really calls the atention.

    By the way, I liked that your entry remembered me some command and conquer game like red alert saga.
    and the nuclear fog looks nice.

    You will not be disqualified for cheating if no one has voted for you.

    ah ok, your post was to serius.

    Is still too soon to talk tendencies, time can turn the tide.

    if no one has voted for you:

    in contest many times I see that users can vote 3 entries or even 5 entries (when the number of entries is high like 25-30).
    But since here is only 1 entry, is really hard to get votes.

    Mostly votes are going to the best entry, there is still uncertain of what is going to happen with the 2nd and 3rd place of the poll.

    There are too many entries so votes are very splitted,

    If someone likes futuristic Bern or Nigthstalker.

    If someone likes Skyrim Prince Yaser or RedLord.
    If someone likes orcs and Nigth elfs, mehehehe:grin:

    If someone likes some cool effects with the colors , Mythic.

    If someone likes zergs, and infested planets, Neruvatar.

    If someone likes red alert, it should be you, but red alert stalled in time, they didnt do nothing since red alert 3.
    (and actually your entry looks more like red alert 2, very classic, few people plays retro games).

    Not only was it my most test heavy time of the year, but I was also outmatched several leagurs both in terms of artistic capabilities and model usage.
    Should had used the UTM I guess.
    Kudos to the guys who made actual terrains and not just some... thing.

    my first try was without the UTM, and then I changed to the UTM.

    some orcs vs undeads

    then, when changed to UTM, I saw all the doodads and place the ones I liked.
    I liked the green bricks, the wooden stuff, and decided orcs vs NE.

    Damn, PrinceYaser got really good over the past few years, from bottom to the top. :) Many great entries, especially NightStalker improved a lot, Bernkastel provided some quality content as always, but my personal vote goes for PrinceYaser.

    Unpopular opinion here :D.
    Aftermath: my guess is some kind of " damage has done " in this case, landscape.
    I have watch all the entries, they looked great and artistic as well.
    But in the end, i decide to vote RedLord.
    I do love NightStalker and PrinceYaser work there but i might prioritize some one did it very naturally.

    Hi, compared to PrinceYaser, Mythic and NightStalker's terrain, PrinceYaser's one is much more pleasant to see and its much more natural. Good luck to all. :)
