The results are final and the decision of FS. Everyone is allowed to disagree with our choices, however, please keep in mind, that since we are the sponsor of the prize pool, the decision is ours and ours alone.
People who are in anyway negative and not showing congratulations for the lucky winners will be dealt with swiftly and their posts removed.
Again, big thanks to FS for providing this competition, it's greatly appreciated. Also congratulations to the winners and all participants, no doubt they put a lot of effort and time into this.
I'm fully aware that evaluating art is a very subjective thing, based on the taste of the judging individuals. I'm just surprised that the result doesn't cope with the public opinion.
All I was asking for was:
Who were the judges?
What criteria was crucial in the decision making?
I'm not disrespectful or ungrateful. I know music, religion, politics and art are things you can hardly argue about, that's why every art competition on this planet draws up guidelines for the evaluating process :P
I think this type of competition might get more people interested in playing this game, if it gets promoted properly.
