Hello EAG members! We are happy to announce a new contest that I'm sure many of you would like to participate in and win the prizes. Why would you need these prizes? Well, because THIS prize will help you greatly when 8.0 goes live on our servers. The top two winners will receive FREE CV's immediately when 8.0 goes live, and the third place participant will immediately receive a nice warp-capable SV. These ships will come fully fueled, loaded with oxygen and even ammo included! What is this contest and how do you participate? We are wanting all participants to create new custom POI's that we may use in the upcoming 8.0 release. Any POI's used will be given credit to their creators. The rules for creating and entering your projects are given below, as well as the information for how they will be judged. Requirements to follow while creating your project: 1. Class sizes should be be between 5 - 40. If you NEED something outside of this range and have a good reason to do so, please contact Guru with your reasons and a decision will be made. 2. We want POI's that are unique! If you need to, you can use something from the workshop, but it MUST be change by at least 50% from the original. If you use a workshop blueprint, you must disclose this information when you submit your entry. If you do not disclose and you are caught you will be disqualified. 3. Give your POI's defenses (turrets, traps, spawners, etc.) but don't try to make it impossible to complete. We hope to get submissions that are aimed at medium to advanced players. If you add turrets or whatever, try to protect them in a creative way! Too many POI's out there are easily taken out by an SV. 4. Be creative! Make use of decorations and textures to give your POI that finishing touch and give you an edge over other entries! 5. Submit your entry ON TIME. Late submissions will not be eligible to win a prize. 6. Entries can be submitted by a single person, a group, or even an entire faction. BUT, each winner only receives the one prize stated above. How will my entry be judged? 1. All members of the admin team will be individual judges as well as 2 - 3 players from our server that will serve as independent judges. 2. Each submitted POI will be scored between 1 - 10 points PER SECTION based on this criteria: Looks and WOW factor Play-ability and the fun factor experienced while attacking the POI Difficulty (not too easy, not OP) Ingenuity and uniqueness (try to do something unusual, new and creative) Finishing touches (decorations, pipes, LCD panels, riddles, traps.. use your imagination!) When will this contest take place? Once 8.0 hits the beta branch, we will start this contest. We will likely run the contest for two weeks. If you choose, you may start your projects now but be aware that you may need to do changes to your structure based on new features once 8.0 beta information is released. If you have any other questions, please reply below. Good luck everyone!
