I was excited until I realized it doesn't say "redesign many of the ships in the game". Game has some fugly ships. Eos. Dominix. And that's just Gallente.

Wait. First place gets $500, second place gets $750, and third place gets $900?

That sounds kinda bass ackwards.

It's their take on "paying more for less" policy. SOE is sorta using that mechanic for their EQ2 Extended premiums...

...actually it's a freudian typo made by writer, which he noted he has already corrected below. :)

Of course it was a mix-up. I was simply trying to bring it up without going all "Herp-derp you did something wrong."

Also, it wasn't fixed when I made the comment. Obviously.

Respectfully, I think you used the word respectively wrong. Well, at least when it comes to the ordering of prizes.

Unless I am shooting for third place, then I might not mind :-p

Reading some of the comments on entries is showing that the deviantART people are getting trolled hard and aren't taking it too well.

Doesn't surprise me considering how many ED/4c troll type characters scour DE for their tears and newest lulz.

So CCP is going to pay some poor sap 900 bucks and have them sign away their rights to something that would cost a normal graphics designer tens of thousands of dollars for a comissioned work? This of course doesnt include the poly specialist.

At least we can hope these designs arent created from a drunken stupor, looking out into an old trainyard at night and saying...."look what i made, Minmitars!"

Dontcha hate it when those funny stories come back and bite folks on the @ss?

Given the whole price deal, I do not believe they are giving less or significantly less money than having one internal guy designing it.

The deal is good and they probably aim to scout for new (and cheap) artists for their team.

They might intend to move their more experienced stuff on their other projects and recruit new personnel for EVE at least artist wise.

Respectfully, I totally disagree. In my eyes CCP is doing this to get their player base more involved, I doubt shifting through thousands of ship designs is easier that just get one of their experienced designers to whip up a new design.

No reason always to look at the negative.

some of the entries aren't even relevant, such as some girl put a picture of herself.

The trolling seems to be based off the Eve forums from what I can tell.

A 50-1000 meter long ship would mean any ship up to battleship size and maybe freighters.

Excluding capital ships, motherships and titans.
