And there, that's all of them (I think!:cool: ) Vote for your favorite battle however you'd like. Here's the guidelines I put on the original post:

The environment. A detailed environment/background is an excellent addition.
The creativity- "Battle of the Five Armies" ripoffs are not cool :cool:
The detail placed into the weaponry, unit types, intial confrontation, and ensuing battles are important.
The commanders. These units should essentially be detailed heroes with their own personalities, leadership skills and battle skills. These units may die in the battle, but another must take their place unless they die in the last confrontation.
The result. An interesting result, like a treatie signed or both armies utterly destroyed, is good to have.

Hah, tight race. I'm not going to vote for obvious reasons, but it's going to be an interesting result, I can tell. Might even end in a tie, in which case I'll have to create a new poll for the people who tie...

Anyways, good luck guys, there's still 4 days of voting to go!

Will you give us some leak oneday ?=) Tho, judging from your story posted here, should be amazing =).
I also wanted to post one battle, had all the ideas already in the head, but duno couldnt wrote it down =P. I know that creating the good imaginative stuff is one (hard?) thing, the second is writing it down, so i admire ppl who posted this battles even before they knew they may get beta key. If i had a choice i would give key to all of them =).

Maybe when i refine the first bits a little as it need a bit of sorting.

4 hours left of voting, at the moment Zach is in first by a single vote over blackfang. I'm going to go ahead and cast my vote now, and my favorite was (very slimly more than Zach's) Negthareas's battle.
Despite this, everybody did excellent and in my opinion they were all practically equal in skill and creativity. Great job guys, and don't feel bad if you don't end up winning.
We'll see who the real winner in in four hours, eh? :)

blackfang

zach you deserve it:)

Good Job Zach! Thank you Swift. This competition was a good thread! Not that it added to the game itself, maybe. But it added, feel to the site. If you know what I mean.

Welshie - I think yours was pretty good, second place in my mind. You have done especially well with your follow-up stories.

Swift sword
01-27-2010, 08:43 PM
Well guys, it was a tight race but Zach indeed ended up on top. Great job to all the other contestants, nobody did poorly and keep in mind the voting was all very subjective. Don't be disheartended if you didn't win, and thank you SO much for participating. I really appreciate it :)

Great job Zach, you certainly earned that beta key. Have fun with it!

Henry Martin
01-27-2010, 08:48 PM
Congrats zach. Like others have said you all did great jobs with your stories. None of you wrote a bad story, so all of you should be proud.

blackfang
01-28-2010, 12:06 AM
You know welshie and nagt. I seriously believed both of you would end up above me. But SOMEHOW i got up above you. Of course zach got the better of us but yours were pretty good:D Mine was just something i put together and just continued on.

blackfang
01-28-2010, 12:06 PM

Swift sword
01-28-2010, 03:34 PM
Uh, just asking Zach, but you haven't got your beta key yet, right? I'll have to pm Alex to make sure you get it ;)
Great job, glad you all liked the competition. :D

Swift sword
01-28-2010, 09:26 PM
It's 2nd, and don't worry, I pmed him about your key. You'll get it, unless I make a deal with the devil to steal it...:cool:

Congratulations, Zach! Great entries all around.

I'd also like to offer blackfang a third beta key for a close second place - that is, if he doesn't mind, of course. ;) And let's give Swift Sword a third beta key as well and a thank you for organizing this wonderful contest. You have Andy to thank for nominating you for a key. :)

We have the email address you guys registered with. If you're no longer using that address, you can PM me.

Congrats guys, judging from his posts I bet swift sword is gonna be ecstatic about his new key ;p.

I myself can't wait for the initial keys to get sent, bu I think I can manage.

blackfang
01-29-2010, 12:05 AM
huh:confused: i, somehow... got... a key? YAY!!!!!:o :o I actually got a key to this AWESOME game for second place:D I feel a gratitude from the bottom of my heart to everyone (especially those who made it such a close run) i wish welshie and nagt also could get one for their stories, but right now i am going to be very selfish and say one thing. I cant wait to play this game! Now not to ruin the moment i give the word to whoever wants to while i feel better during school today:D Now i barely can't wait:p I held in my feeling so long:p

Supreme
01-29-2010, 02:49 AM

Well....Uhh....that was unexpected to say the least....
*loses composure*
YAY!:) :) :) :eek: :eek: :eek: :cool: :cool: :cool:
*regains composure*
Sorry 'bout that. Anyways, well...I'm shocked. I was ecstatic when Alex came in offering a key to the winner of the competition. I wasn't expecting at all to receive one myself ;)

On-Topic: Anyways, I'd just like to thank everyone again for participating. Hope you all enjoyed it, and gratz to blackfang for receiving a key also. You had some nice story extensions added onto yours that were enjoyable to read. ;) It was cool you took up your time just to make them for fun.

Not gonna be able to sit still in school today now...or focus. Least my classes are so easy I don't have to...And I though Pre-AP was supposed to be "challenging".:rolleyes:

blackfang
01-29-2010, 07:28 AM
Well luckily i got a whole weekend now just to sit and write and play battle grounds 2:D So until the beta opens that will take most of my time i guess...

man thats awesome!!! i feel so achieved now :D

but i have to also say i might hold a contest to give away my beta key ( if its ok with reverie ) due to the fact that my good computer is all screwed up right now and im not sure whats wrong with it. so if i cant get it fixed before beta i wouldnt want my key to go to waste. any ideas as to what i should do?

Supreme
01-30-2010, 09:36 AM
Silently give it to me, thats what id do... :P

Swift sword
01-30-2010, 10:37 AM
Man, that's tough Zach. I'd suggest you PM Alex about it. Maybe he'll have an idea.

Edit: Oh, and I visited that site but completely missed the newsie. I feel stupid and honored at the same time XD

Alex Walz
01-30-2010, 10:14 PM
You can, of course, give it away however you'd like. However, I'd suggest just sticking on to it and hope for the best - we have a couple weeks before we'll be sending out the beta. :)

blackfang
01-31-2010, 06:48 AM

And what're the specs of your 'bad' computer? I've run the game with a pretty old PC just to test it and we're working on things like draw distance and other stuff we can adjust for optimization. You might be pleasantly surprised.
