An EVE Online player is holding a contest in the official forums.
User Krxon Blade has started a peculiar contest in the EVE Online official forums. Until December 30th, players must create the ugliest character possible for a chance at winning 150 million ISK. The post with the most votes will take the prize home. He adds that if for some reason CCP Games (EVE Online’s developing and publishing company) decides to take the post down before Friday, the competition will end and the contestant with the highest votes until then will be awarded 25 million ISK instead. Other users may also add to the winning pool should they desire by leaving a comment in the contest thread specifying the amount they would like to donate.
EVE Online is a space simulation MMO developed and published by Icelandic studio CCP Games. Mostly known fo its intricate sandbox elements, the game puts players in control of a pilot who must explore the expansive universe of New Eden whilst completing variuos tasks, be they set by the developers or by players themselves. The title, first released in 2003, offers so many possibilities that it isn’t hard to hear of epic PvP wars that had a direct impact in the game world, commercial schemes with player-controlled banks, some of which were in the spotlight for scamming fellow pilots, and relationships that endure a lifetime.
CCP Games recently launched a contest to allow players to share their stories in EVE Online for a chance at winning exclusive prizes such as two years of Omega Time and signed copies of books and comics based on the game’s universe.
EVE Online is available free of charge on Windows PC, Mac, and Linux.
