Out of the 15 semi-finalists,         three winners have been chosen for the EVE Online "Create A Starship" contest. Before we show off the         ships that made the top 3, deviantART wants to give a big thank-you to the members of the EVE Online         creative team who picked the intergalactic winners, as well as everyone who participated. CCP has its         own special message about the winners:

"CCP would like to thank deviantART, the dA community, and the EVE community for participating         in this contest. A very cool EVE ship won out of over 3,800 entries. The sheer number of entries was         huge, and the images went from mildly insane to stunningly beautiful. We understand that there is a         huge outcry from the EVE community about the semi-finalist round suggestion, but dA ran a good contest.         Ultimately they had to judge a subjective thing, art, which is never easy. What came out of that process         was a really cool Minmatar ship to be added to the EVE universe."

So, check the out-of-this-world winners below and catch a glimpse of the deviants who scored tons of stellar         loot – including iPads, Wacom tablets, and deviantWear! Pay special attention to the first place ship, because         you'll be able to fly it around the EVE Online universe very soon!

ok winner 2 i agree on all states but i don't really like the 1st place ship and the 3rd place design is just horrible compared to some of the amazing designs which were entered.
Also why did you pick 2 minmitar type ships to win? Couldn't you have separated it into 1 winner for each of the 4 races? would of been much better.

Ah and.. Might this first place be a especially smart way to "announce" the introduction of t3 BS? :D

Sigh... so another matari rust bucket joins my target practice list... and we will still see CONCORD's poor excuse for a frame with guns everywhere... how sad. Gatekeeper was a Far better design to go with.

No offense to the winners, your designs are just not my style.

And now the whole Eve online community hates us.

I didn't participated, and I don't play the game, so I don't know what happened.

There are idiots in every community and they are usually heard above the sanity of the rest of us. With that being said, here's the reason for the uproar.

[1] The winner will have their ship included in Eve-Online so the winning entry must naturally fit within the universe right?
[2] Out of the 15 semi-finalists only 3 ships actually looked like they could fit in EvE universe and one of them was for a faction that players weren't allowed to play as.
[3] The LABattleCruiser was included in the 15 finalists [link] to begin with. Only after the judges noticed a watermark on the work did they remove the ship from the contest and substituted the Tornado [link] . [hence the rally cry "LABC > Tornado = Broken Contest"]
[4] Finally, there were numerous shortcommings by the judges in part for not supplying feedback as to whether ship designs were accepted/rejected. Along with this, most of the Trial codes for qualifying entries didn't get out till long after the contest ended.

Ps. The EvE community found it amusing that a ship, not even listed in the finalists to begin with, won the competition. Hope this sums it up for ya :3

The winner of the competition will have their ship in game. With this being said, if you've ever played EvE, out of the 15 Semi-finalists, only 3 really fit in EvE. The 1st & 3rd place winners were two of them, the third one was a Jovian ship that players aren't allowed to fly in the first place. There was no contest among the 15, I'm sure the EvE community knew immediately which ship would win the contest [the Tornado].

The contest finalists should have had designs that ALL fit within the EvE universe, not just 3.

What to write. Um. congratz to the winners. Im kinda sad my entry didn't made it.

But for future contests. People who do not understand that behind textures lies solid block should not comment at all.

I saw many designs out there. Winner got great looking textures, great render and great background. Personally I like that design (If I could I'll add side extension with engine and small solar pannels) but I saw many better looking out there. Funniest thing is that CCP team didn't wrot anything about model itself but about render which Is for Me, a little weird.

Preventing from any flame comments after posting this. YES I am jelous. Yes I would love to see mine top15 subbmision as one of those top3. But I will not cry or cut myself cuz I lost. Im going to work harder to make more detailed ships. And maybe If I'll add texture people start liking my starships and find out that not only textures and renders makes ship good.

At end, Its sad that Baranha didn't made 1st place. From the top 15 naru kami was the best design.

Moonred Starblack

PS. Don't hate me to much and comment my stuff. I need feedback to start creating kickass designs ;)

It didn't win because if it did, it's for a faction of ships that are 'non-playable'. would kinda suck having a ship entered into the game no-one could play as :3

LOL, JK.

Really, great job by all the entrants. I personally like the Naru-Kami more. But seeing EVE online ships, it isn't as dark and gritty as most of them are. And the Tornado really does fit the atmosphere more.
Good show.
