As previously decided in this thread, the final emblem and colors of Lincoln Force will be decided by an open competition followed by a vote. You can enter simply by posting a screenshot here of the emblem that you have made. We are going to try to let every person in the guild have the authority to create an emblem, but for some reason if that cannot happen you can just create your own guild (it is free) and create your entry there. The rules are as follows.

  • Enter by posting in this THIS THREAD. Entries in other threads will not be counted
  • Limit 2 entries per person. That way you are not forced to just pick one thing that you like, but it prevents people from entering a bunch.
  • Can use any emblem that you want
  • Must use the GB colors of Black, Red, and White, but which colors are more or less prominent does not matter.
  • The Leaders and Officers will go over all entries and narrow it down to the top 5.
  • Everyone will get to vote on which of those 5 they like best, with the winner becoming the new emblem
  • In addition to seeing your creation strike fear into the hearts of Lincoln Force's enemies, the winner will go home with a (in-game) cash prize of 1 Gold, delivered a some point soon after release. We have to earn it first!

Ok everyone, good luck!

Oh man, its going to take a while to get 25 silver to contribute to that prize. I may just buy it with gems.

I can't wait to see what people come up with.

@selfconfessedcynic: Selling mats, you can get it quickly.

@selfconfessedcynic: You need 25 silver? Looks like I won't be doing an entry.

#5 Edited by selfconfessedcynic (2496 posts) -

@Maystack: Hm? nono - us leaders and officers are chipping in for the prize. I said I'd give 25. GET ON MUMBLE MAYSTACK JEEZ : D

#6 Posted by Maystack (902 posts) -

@selfconfessedcynic: Oh right, I just skim read the post haha. And I can't, everyone else in the house is asleep. I'll get on tomorrow though.

Guilds

  • The preview feature in the Emblemer panel does not function as intended.

Just found that on the official forums. Might put a damper on our plans.

#8 Posted by shinboy630 (1134 posts) -

@Dark_Lord_Spam: Well that's a bummer. Hopefully they fix it before the weekend is up. We shall see!

How's that?

#10 Posted by PeezMachine (234 posts) -

My two entries. PeezMachine 1 is a FIERCE EAGLE! PeezMachine 2 should remind you of the logo that flashes before a Quicklook.

Combining 's previous design with a slight mod by me, we have my favourite so far:

Black stein, white froth, field of red.

Which translates to...
#12 Posted by shinboy630 (1134 posts) -

@selfconfessedcynic: Should have gone with the red froth. We drink the blood of our enemies!

After playing around with them, this is definitely my favourite design. The only problem is that it's very generic. My second favourite one is the beer mug.

I hope they release a bomb design, similar to the engineer logo at launch (they had a bunch of placeholders so they will be adding designs in the future).

#14 Posted by RobbieMac (534 posts) -

@selfconfessedcynic: My favourite so far. Though I decided to make two anyways.

Those are pretty awesome. I like the one on the top a little more.

#16 Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam (3231 posts) -

Can anyone tell if there's a difference between those last several background shapes? I have a hard time believing the UI designer would just leave a bunch of duplicates in unless they're placeholders.

I'm pretty sure they are just placeholders, which means we should run another contest like a month or so after release :P

#18 Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam (3231 posts) -

@shinboy630: They're actually just going to add in all of the Giant Bomb assets that they've been keeping secret.

#20 Posted by Maystack (902 posts) -

Had a spare five minutes so hopped on and made these.

I like the second one the most.

#21 Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam (3231 posts) -

@Maystack: Ol' Honest Abe was well-known for his ability to catch speeding projectiles in mid-air. I'm digging it.

#22 Edited by Bollard (5394 posts) -

These are pretty awesome. I'll try my hand at two now.

EDIT: Bahahaha just seen that my new norn character is so big his head is cut off on the character select screen. Fantastic.

#23 Posted by Benny (1950 posts) -

Only made one that I like, so there you go!

#24 Posted by Bollard (5394 posts) -

My two. The first one entertained me for how well it fit, and the second I chose because I like the foreground image.

#25 Posted by RobbieMac (534 posts) -

@Benny: where's the white :(

#26 Posted by Benny (1950 posts) -

@RobbieMac: Couldn't make one with white that I liked I'm afraid, the background layer looks dark grey when it's set to white so I just made it black.

I really like the hand one.

#28 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2496 posts) -

Because they didn't have all of the emblem and background things in yet, I say we extend this competition to the first week after release.

Also, my winner for this competition thus far?

GIVE EVERYONE ACCESS SO THE SHIT KEEPS CHANGING OMG WE WENT FROM AN OCTOPUS TO A FIST TO A BIG FUCKING EAGLE HEAD

We could always just have a second contest! Although having the emblem constantly changing every few hours is kind of lame imo. I want out emblem to be recognized so when people see it they are like "Oh shit, [BOMB] owns that. They must be pro, and also very handsome and good with the ladies".

I may or may not have just added that last part.

#30 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2496 posts) -

@shinboy630: Oh yeah, sure, I definitely want to be recognised once we get a bunch of people at 80 participating in WvW instead of the usual crew of about 15 duders.

But that's all end game. The next thing forward is release, and I don't see any need to rush at that point. Also, no need to make a poll now and make another one only a month later, especially as many have not made entries.

Well the reason I say we separate things is because all the ones made this beta were essentially wasted. Oh well! I guess we will just make a new thread come release so nobody gets confused over who has entered/not entered already.

Just don't have anyone submit their design in-game until we've finalized our pick. Just make your design at the registrar and screen cap it.

We need to find a way to revoke emblem privileges from ourselves. Never again.

@UssjTrunks I know -_-" My point was just having it constantly change throughout the life of the guild is a dumb idea.

I'm confused lol. Why would it change? Aren't we just going to pick one in the first week and roll with that forever?

I was replying to what was saying about how we should give access to everyone so it keeps changing because he found it funny,

Oh okay lol. Reading comprehension fail.

Oh, I totally never got around to doing this. I suppose that is a good thing though since I don't think it would have allowed me to make a space neon lobster.

Love the one on top. Reminds me of Homeworld 2's logo a lil and I love homeworld.

I vote for Abe catching arrows.

#43 Posted by chrisauel (9 posts) -

I didn't get a chance to play around with the emblem creator over the beta weekend, so I took a stab at making a custom one. Tried to kinda follow the options available from here: http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/File:Emblemcreation.jpg

This was just for fun as it would be cool if they let us do truly custom designs.

#44 Posted by Maystack (902 posts) -

Found a site that allows you to mess around with the emblem stuff. Might make it easier to make entries for the contest. But as of yet it still doesn't have all the options available so we're still in the same situation as last time.

#45 Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam (3231 posts) -

@Maystack: It's a good place to point people towards, anyway, if we don't want our emblem changing every 5 minutes after release while everyone experiments.

#46 Posted by punxotani (17 posts) -

if i had i'd vote for the honest abe and his stove top. too bad this game isn't perfect though. used the emblem site to generate:

rampant lion
#47 Posted by shinboy630 (1134 posts) -

Bumping this thread to remind everyone to make your emblem entries as soon we unlock the dude with influence. With the influence items from the DDE and CE, it should not take long to get. I will update the OP before launch with a few rule tweaks having to do with when entries are due by and whatnot.

Opinion question: Should we stick the new entries in this thread? Or make a new one?

#48 Posted by Benny (1950 posts) -

@shinboy630: continue with this thread, there were still emblem layers missing in the last beta build that may or may not have been added.

#49 Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam (3231 posts) -

@shinboy630: This one's already up with a relevant title, so it'll work.

#50 Posted by shinboy630 (1134 posts) -

Now that the guild has unlocked the emblem dude, get crackin' on those designs! Rules from the OP still apply.
