When I initially launched the latest EVE Blog Banter Contest - The Ladies of New Eden - I expected to get roughly the same amount of entries as with previous popular banters - maybe 40. Or maybe even as much as the last Banter Contest which was about 60. But 80 entries? Not in my wildest dreams!
As such, I'm going to need a bit more time to go through all these entries and am pushing the winners announcement up to Friday May 7th, 2010 - tough if I can do it sooner, I will.
To make up for this delay, I've decided to bump up the number of winner to 10. Not only that, but Avalloc, one of the candidates for the 5th Council of Stellar Management, was kind enough to offer 1 Billion ISKs for all 10 winners!
So, to recap the Prizes to be awarded are:
- 1st Place: $75 in EVE Store merchandise and 100 million ISKs
- 2nd Place: $50 in EVE Store merchandise and 100 million ISKs
- 3rd, 4th & 5th Place: $25 in EVE Store merchandise each and 100 million ISKs each
- Prizes for 6th to 10th place are 100 million ISKs each
I hope this will make up for the delay, and that you'll bare with me as I ponder on who are the 10 best entries out of those 80 submitted!
