No Peregrinas on the winners board?  :C  Thought you had this one, mate.  You scare me into adding more detail every contest.  Congrats to the winners!

Wait... WHAT?!?!?!?! Are you kidding me???

 

Niko, are you ****ing kidding me? 

 

My 50+ hours wasted all for nothing?????

 

I'm sorry but this is NOT acceptable.

 

wth Niko?

 

I was expecting at least third place, but to not even place out of 6? What. The. ****.

 

Contests have only been getting worse and worse. You might as well not even mention "quality" and "complexity" as scoring criteria anymore, because it is obvious that quality and complexity were not taken into the slightest bit of consideration here. Overall effort wasn't considered that much either. Might as well just trim it down to "Entries will be judged on creativity." An out-of-proportion, messy, but "artistic" or "creative" creation seems to score better than an accurate, well-designed, and faithful creation.

Thank you Niko, for causing me to WASTE 50+ hours of my life these past two weeks. 50 HOURS. I will now hate to look at my model which I had placed on my shelf as it resembles WASTED TIME, but at the same time I will not throw it away because then IT WILL BE a waste of time for sure.

A Lego build that is rather messy and does a poor job at portraying Iowa beat my entry?

Not everyone has the same artistic style.

Not everyone can appreciate the styles of others. 

 

But, everyone has differences.

It's considered common decency, at the very least, not to insult these differences.

 

It's also a violation of Forum Rule 2.5. I suggest you stop putting other people down in an attempt to make yourself look better.

I mean, it was your choice to put in that much time. You could have just bought the pixel boats.

I put in that much time with the confidence that quality will give me points. However, it is now obvious that quality isn't even considered in these kinds of contests anymore. Seriously, this build was better than my Prinz Eugen build last year which ended up tying for first place in that contest. @thegamefilmguruman was there, tied for first place too if I'm not mistaken.

I mean, looking at the builds yours was definitely one of the best. But i'm not a judge. So unfortunately, what we say doesn't matter as it wasn't by popular vote.

To think that I spent a day designing and then building the three quad 130mm turrets on Dunkerque...

Have you ever considered a carreer in architecture?  We prize model building abilities like yours.  AAAaaaand now I'm having first year flashbacks.  Had to build a tiny house out of heavy paper.  This is taking me back.

Imagine you just spent the last 10 years of your life training for the 100 meter sprint, and that you are only capable of competing once before having to retire. You compete, your time is somewhere among the top 3 (for gold, silver, and bronze medals), but you get kicked out by someone with a slower time because they tumbled and made the judges laugh.

Niko chose those with the least forum posts so they wouldn't brag about winning unlike some other people...

You say that now, but I highly doubt you will actually mean that in the scenario I described to you.
