It’s June, and that means our May screenshot contest is over, and the results are in!
We had sooo many creative and enjoyable entries and we’re very grateful for everyone’s submission. That’s why choosing winners was a lot like choosing a kitten out of a litter to take home. It was really difficult for our judges to pick three “winners” knowing that all of the other entries were just as deserving. But in the end they were able to agree on a handful of entries that stood out among the rest just enough to win.
Before we reveal the winners, we want to invite you to stop by the Community board on the Darkhaven Forums to see all of the entries. We also want to give a nod to a few screenshots that probably would have earned a prize if we had done a top 4 instead of top 3.
Winners! Best Battle Scene
#3 – Tripping the Frozen Maw, by Tsukitty
#2 – Tequatl vs. The Unicorn, by Eve Victus
#1 – The Standoff, by Eurydae
Did you know that on rare occasions the Risen will turn and fight against Tequatl!? Nah, that’s not true, but this screenshot could make you believe otherwise. It’s too bad though, because we would all love a little help with Teq.
Winners! Best Scenery
#3 – Loners in the Snow, by Smartcat
#2 – Dreams, by Aptco09
#1 – Sunrise Rising, by Zaila
How would you celebrate if you just finished the laborious and expensive process of crafting Sunrise? Would you, for example, climb to the top of the Hidden Garden jumping puzzle and take the perfect screenshot of a perfect in-game sunrise behind your own Sunrise!? Yeah!
Winners! Funniest Screenshot
#3 – Natalie the Beautiful, by Lazy Hobo
#2 – The Uninvited, by Slithid
#1 – Just another Day, by Pancake
The frustration of Jumping puzzles – we’ve all been there. Carefully judging our steps and distances. So, so close. One last jump! A quick cast of Swiftness just in case, a few steps back, a running jump, and… *thump*. It’s a brutal world out there, but to be mocked by a wall!? That’s just plain mean.
As promised, our three first place winners will receive up to 800 gems worth of goodies from the gem store! Contact Serine Tempest in-game or on the forums to tell her what items you want.
Each of our three second place winners will receive an upgrade extractor and our third place winners will receive a metabolic primer. These prizes will be mailed out by Clara Fee tonight, so keep an eye on your in-game mail.
