Welp, the contest finished with a poof rather than a bang, but that’s alright since there are prizes waiting to be given away! And trust me, these prizes won’t stand still. They’ve got a life of their own.
What were the prizes again? Let’s recap:
Third Prize – 1 Decal Tool, 1 Strange Revolver, 1 picture of your favourite load out done in Garry’s Mod.
Second Prize – 1 Tour of Duty Ticket, 1 Strange Medi Gun, 1 picture of your favourite load out done in Garry’s Mod, 1 fan fiction of your choice written by me.
First Prize – 1 Mann Co. Supply Key, 1 Strange Sticky Bomb Launcher, 1 picture of your favourite load out done in Garry’s Mod, 1 fan fiction of your choice written by me, 1 piece of art drawn and coloured by me.
See! Creative and unique prizes! But unfortunately, no one seemed to want them apart from the three people who entered and produced some-what finished articles. What a pity. You could have had me write a erotic fan fiction between Engineer and the TFC Pyro, with the TF2 Pyro getting jealous and wanting to get in on the action. Now you never will. Although, having said that, expect three of them to appear on a TF2 fan fiction site within the next week.
So, who are the winners?
Winner the Third: cp_Junction, What’s your Function? by delirious biznasty!
Shame this one didn’t seem polished and finished and all that. It’s a good article, pointing out all the things that make cp_Junction horrible. Heck, it may not have even been an entry, but it certainly felt like one. Bonus points for images.
Winner the Second: Why Soldier is (often) the favorite and most balanced class by Megashark42!
Great article here by Megashark. It includes pretty much everything and explains itself clearly and precisely. Bonus points for the nostalgia and the Gunboats.
Winner the FIRST: Scream Fortress 2014 Coverage with Dekky, by Dekky!
Well done, Dekky, you managed to cover the entirety of Scream Fortress 6 within a single article! And it was very well written, complete with images and the best use of the secret phrase.
So, you lucky (and talented) prize winners! Hit me up on Steam or send me a PM on the Steam Powered User Forums (preferably with your idea for a GMod picture, your fan fiction idea and your piece of art) and I’ll sort you out.
Thanks, everyone! See you at the big 600! Which, considering there’s been about 20 articles between now and the big 500th post, won’t be too far away…
