The contest is over and we have a victor. The winner of our first annual contest is none other than Carveyfan, our runners up were Silver Monkey and Olmec! Congratulations to you my friend. You are now recognized as a Legends god. Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest (even if all you did was read submissions), this was very fun for me as I'm sure it was for all of us. I hope you're all looking forward to next years contest, let's look forward to another great year with the forum. And finally, one last time, happy first aniversary to Phantom's Temple.

Indeed. I'd also like to acknowledge the two runners-up, Olmec, and The Silver Monkey. :)

EDIT: I guess the post above already said that. Anyway... great effort by everyone.

Congrats, Carveyfan!!

Question to Phantom and the judges: Are you all going to be posting any feedback/thoughts on the designs so that we can see what you liked/disliked about each of them??

Can you? Haha, I didn't think mine was that good, I thought of that in like 2 hours after a long day. Blehh, I should've changed it during that week.

We didn't exactly plan on doing that but I suppose we could if you all would like.

Give us sometime to delegate how we'll do it.

Here are my comments... To be fair, I'll only show my comments for the three finalists.

For Carveyfan:

He gave a very detailed amount of info and gave a very realistic feeling to his rooms.
Yes, that is true, and I appreciated how most of his rooms were entirely different from any previous Legends room.

For Olmec:

I wasn't too fond of the Traffic Light room from Olmec's layout, but I felt his others were very well-thought-out, plausible, and detailed.

For The Silver Monkey:

I absolutely love the rooms that were chosen, although I feel they could have been more creative, varied, and detailed...


EDIT: Whoops, didn't get to see the post above...

Silver Monkey's were ok. Didn't really catch my eye, but good none the less 5.5.

Quote from: ""PhantomBPR""
Bluebarracuda7's were very nice. I didn't like the cop out with the harmonic lazers, but there were alot of good rooms any way.
Solid 8.

So... for SSTwinrova, I found the layout very creative. Minus the slot machine room, the historian's desk room, and one other I forgot, all of the rooms would have been great for the temple. In addition, he took some extra time to type out the descriptions of the rooms, which was great, too. an 8.5/10 from me.

So, for ts1011's, I thought the rooms had pretty good variety, but the thing that irked me is how it probably wouldn't be suitable for the temple. The percussion intrument room comes to mind. A 7/10 from me.


Quote from: ""PhantomBPR""
I liked SSTwinrova's layout a great deal. Some of his don't neccesarily work for the temple, but I'm very fond of them anyway. 8.5

Quote from: ""PhantomBPR""
I didn't really care for outer space's layout. Just not enough info for me. 5/10.

Quote from: ""nicklegends""
lotht-lover's was awful, if you would ask me. Senseless rooms, no detail, and under-par creativity. A 2/10.


to loth-lover: Sorry man, we just weren't fond of 'em, but good effort man, keep working on your format.

Yeah, my "Road Rage Traffic" room was my worst, I knew that. Did me & The Silver Monkey tie for second, or did one place better?

Man, I don't know how he (Carveyfan) does it. His rooms were amazing, why even hold the contest, I knew he was gonna win. I was just praying he would forget haha. Oh well, there's always next year, & a proud 2nd place is somewhat satisfying.

Sorry, but I gotta add this in:

Bounce wit it, drop wit it
Lean wit it, rock wit it
Snap wit it, all my ladies pop yo back with it
DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT...

Sorry about that.
