    What where the screen shots suppose to be for again? Are we voting on how pretty the shot is or who inventive they are in the new client?

    I'm surprised there wasn't a miner, a mass combat or a formation of friends in any of the chosen shots.

    (disclaimer: I didn't submit anything ... my character setups aren't really done yet)

    I'm sure it's not easy to pick out of the many they got. (I didn't send in).
    Interesting layouts on some. Mine is closer to one of them. (I aint telling... yet)

    Did anyone notice the orc face on #5? :thumbup1: Looks like he used the body sculptors since he's not wearing a mask, he has a Kasa.

    Fair enough.

    I always feel like everything I say is negative. Be honest now, do you ever get fed up of all the negativity or is there enough praise to make you feel its actually worth while working as hard as you can?

    If it didn't say ShadowWyrmBattle.jpg, I'm not sure I would even to be able to tell what was going on..

    I still think the 3d around the 2d distracts me from what I'm used to seeing, and I have this weird feeling like I can't focus on what I want to with my eyes in the new client. Hard to explain.

    Let's have a 2d picture contest!

    None of these pics are that impressive imo.

    I like the number one picture I liked the lay out. Plus it also has a cute little dolphin in it.

    man... I dunno what it is...I just can't see how everything they have done to the graphics is supposed to be better than 2D. To me 2D is crisp clean lines, and brighter. Those 5 screenshots look dark, blurry like somebody with a sooty finger smudged it. And sorry...in 2D it looks like GRASS, not some weird splotchy mold growin on the ground.

    no vote.

    Man I should have entered this!!!

    I voted for #5 because I liked to see the most variety of the new art (its in a house surrounded by natural setting) and some weird light thing is going on.

    They were all interesting to look at though, I do not yet have the new client.

    Good luck to all!

    Most of them look very mouse intensive, the least amount of space my mouse has to cover is the best(quickest).

    key board macro's and a few perks on the screen with or with out all the bells and whistles will continue to be far more effective than what I am seeing.

    They might all be bound to keyboard macros too ... it's just hard to make them show up on a screenshot :)

    You can adjust it under users settings so it wont be so dark, and turn off mob shadows.
    Once the lawn mower is invented we will be able to cut the grass then it won't be so bad.

    Legacy containers and "show numbers" are options in the user settings.
