For the Record: Wargaming-sponsored 3D Competition
Hello everyone, Wargaming (in cooperation with Render.ru) started a new competition – for Russian-speaking players only, of course (no competitions for you, capitalists!). Basically, if I understand correctly, players are tasked with creating a 3D scene from your own map (as seen on the picture above). The map should feature environment from the 40′s-50′s and should be original and all that. The winner will be rewarded with 100k rubles (cca 1850 EUR), second place with 60k rubles and third place with 40k rubles. The interesting part about the competition is not really the prizes, it’s the fact that this way, Wargaming is buying map and art ideas pretty much “for free”. They will just have to sort out the submissions. A pretty good idea on their side.
