The EVE Online universe is a captivating and awe inspiring world to view. Wonderfully detailed ships, planets, and effects grace our screens and create a canvas of color rivaling many of the other MMOs out there. The changes CCP Games has made to the environment over the years have simply been stunning and it's time to do justice to this graphical wonder.
I, @Xiphos83 (formerly of A Misguided Adventurer) am teaming up with CrazyKinux to give away some always in demand ISKies and encourage capsuleers out there to put their creative caps on, take some screenshots and build wallpapers that we can grace our gaming machines with.
- The entry fees will be a measly 10 million ISKs to be transfered to the in-game character "CrazyKinux". Only those who have deposited their participation fees will be eligible for the draw.
- The contest will require that you create a wallpaper of a minimum size of 1280 x 1024 in one of two categories from screenshots taken within EVE Online - Action or Scenic.
- Themes: Action (being war, mining ops, ratting, etc) and Scenic (planets, stations orbiting moons, etc).
- All images incorporated in the wallpapers must be from EVE. Whichever way you decide to incorporate your screenshots into the wallpaper is up to you, as long as you stick to the Scenic or Action theme.
- You may submit one (1) wallpaper to each categories, but no more.
- The judges will be Brendan of Massively, CrazyKinux, and Xiphos83.
- Submissions will be gathered on one of CK's Flickr Set, where size, date of submission and artist will be mentioned (and linked back to whenever possible)
- Contest ends on March 26th, 11:59 PM EDT.
The entry fee will be a measly 10 million ISKs and the winners will split the pot! Additionally, CrazyKinux will donate 15 million ISKs to the pot and I, Xiphos83, will be donating 100 million ISKs. So even if we have 1 person apply, there's 175 million up for grabs. That's a few new ships with fittings to boot.
How to Submit:
1) Drop a comment on the post, with URL, character name. Or on this EVE Forum thread.
2) Transfer the 10 million ISK to my character "CrazyKinux"
3) Once you see your screenshot on my Flickr Set, you know your submission has been received and approved!
You will have 14 days to submit your entries to CrazyKinux, so get out there, fire up your Velator of Doom, and start snapping photos!
Remember, the more participants, the bigger the prizes will be!
Good luck to you all!
[UPDATE: After much back and forth with the #tweetfleet and in view of your comments, we've decided to ask for a minimum size wallpaper (1280x1024). This way, almost everyone can partake in the competition and no one is left out!]
