    We would like to thank everyone for submitting their entries to the West Brit Bank Renovation contest. Judging was very difficult as we had so many great entries. As much as we would have liked to use all of the submitted designs, we are only able to place one on each shard. Our thanks and kudos to everyone who submitted an entry. Congratulations to the following winners:

    Shard Player

    Atlantic: Vladimir
    Baja: Arlon Elanesse
    Catskills: Sweety
    Chesapeake: Gareth
    Drachenfels: Thenon
    Europa: Slugmaster
    Formosa: La Chocolaterie
    Great Lakes: Cocopuff
    Lake Austin: Bliss Marie
    Lake Superior: Stupid Miner
    Legends: Devils own (2nd
    Napa Valley: Maiden Millie
    Oceania: MissEcho3
    Pacific: Red Riding Hood
    Siege: Ikichet
    Sonoma: Drakelord

    Congratulations to all of the winners!

    We will provide screen shots of the designs once they are placed on each shard. We hope to have all of the designs placed on each of the shards within the coming weeks. Thank you to everyone who submitted their entries.

    Congrats Sweety! Can't wait to see your design.
    Maybe you could post your entries here for those of us who missed them.

    I am sure it was just an oversight on the part of the Dev team to include their winner.

    Actually, the Devs said that if there are no entries for a shard or none of them meet the criteria, that the devs will remodel the bank themselves.

    Sweety we can't access that link.
    You need to look for the image link in photobucket then post the image into using the insert image button at the top of the message box!

    I was terrified that this contest would be that Brit Bank would become decorated like Las Vegas, but all three of Sweety's submissions are well detailed, in great taste and actually fit Britain's geographical location (I'd seen some designs with tropical themes, and considering that Britain is in the northern-end of the continent, it didn't look right)

    Fantastic job, Sweety, whichever one they've chosen will look fantastic!

    While I am a bit partial to the second submission they are all good. you did a great job. I too was afraid of it being taken over-the-top by someone and we would be stuck with a garish nightmare of a bank.

    I liked hawkeye pikes as well

    You all know that EA will have to get my approval on all this.

    I'm still deciding...

    ChrissayEAMythic UO Community Coordinator made this statement when asked why Origins did not have a winner:
    I'm afraid we didn't receive any submissions for Origin that met the minimum requirements.

    They all look really good, but #2 is my favorite. I want to hang out at the bar on the roof while I make my recalls. Let's hope that's the one they chose.
