    Default Forum banner contest - cool prizes up for grabs! [winners announced on page 9!]

    It's competition time again!

    It's been a while since we held a comp here in ECC, so I figured it's about time to spice things up again

    Our forum banner for the Eidos Forums vBulletin 3 Style is a bit dated and we would like to update it.

    Instead of the forum staff or Square Enix' web team doing this like usual, we thought it would be a nice idea to give regular forum members a chance of having their spot in the limelight and possibly choose one of the fan submissions as our new banner for this forum skin.

    This is the current banner we're looking to update:


    (click image to enlarge)


    Instructions:

    - Maximum number of entries per person: 5

    - Banner dimensions must be exactly 950 pixels wide and 200 pixels high.

    - Include at least 2 characters from different AAA Eidos / Square Enix titles (Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, Hitman, etc) in your entry. You may include more than 2 if you want to.

    - The use of the Square Enix logo is recommended.

    - Upload only high quality images, preferably 24 bit PNGs. No GIFs or low compression JPGs, please.

    - You have exactly one month to enter; the comp ends on February 8th, 2013!

    Is there a vector or at least a layered file for the Square Enix logo?

    Just a quick question: we are allowed to use official renders only, or we could create our renders by for example Blender with the official models?
    I make my own luck.

    Using the official models in Blender is fine. You can even use your own fan art and your entry will still be valid. But keep in mind that the less "official" it looks, the chances of the banner winning and/or being used on the forum are probably going to be less.

    ^ I'm sure you'll cook up something nice, but you *always* have a chance of at least being the random draw winner!

    The beauty of random draw is that it is just that - completely random. It does not factor in quality whatsoever

    Question: Presuming whoever wins first place chooses either of the Hitman games, would the second or random draw winner be allowed to choose the other?

    Second winner may freely choose any of the items not chosen by first winner. Random draw winner may choose any of the items that have 1 single star behind them, provided they were not taken by first or second winner.

    What is the point of the 2 stars and 3 stars then? Can a random draw winner pick either or just single star? I assumed second place can only pick 2 stars or less. No?

    The two stars visually link you to the image of the Hitman prize So you know what you'd be getting

    Three stars for the TR mega bundle thingy
