Any inside info or maybe just a speculation or two?

I can't wait.
I suspect it's going to be something having to do with the battle between heaven and hell, but I could be wildly off.

The logo character this year closely resembles illustrations and descriptions of Satan from Dante's Inferno. Last year people guessed right that it was going to be fantasy-themed because of the logo character.

Thanks, by the way. I really need to go back and redo that character. I'm not satisfied with him and I have some new ideas for him that I think would improve him greatly.

I would be extremely surprised if existing concepts would be OK. The comp is half about how awesome your imagination is.

Also, in previous years no advanced techniques like GI or SSS are allowed. They were quite picky even with the real time shaders last year.

Really looking forward to the main event, im assuming its going to start at midnight tonight EST (about 5am GMT). The mini comp started at midnight if memory serves.

Dont want to have to wait till the end of tomorrow for it to begin

Is it just me or does Dominance War just seem to be a big organizational nightmare? I mean there is a challenge going on now, but it's not really the main challenge, there's multiple segments, sets of rules, multiple categories, meshes or no meshes and then, there's yet another sub challenge maybe in the offing.. Oh yeah, if you go to dominancewar.com there will be no rules there for any of this. I just want to try to enter into the main challenge. I just want to try to enter the main challenge and I feel like I got sucked into a maelstrom.

DomWar is definitely a nightmare when it comes to organization. The past two started late because the site was getting hammered and Fred had his hands full getting everything up and running properly. It took something like a week to get everything ironed out and working smoothly.

Regardless, it seems Fred and company have a better handle on things this year. I'm hoping they can get everything going without a hitch.

Yah total bummer. I've been checking the site daily at work waiting for the rules and theme for this year. I've decided to enter, and I can't wait for it to begin. *Crosses fingers*

Any word yet on when they will announce the top 5's? I am really curious to see who made it in. Lots of great work all around!

yep!, can be quite frustrating these big clocks that goes 3,,2,1......and then just nothing.....
Especially when you're on tight deadlines & stuff yourself.
I sure understand this has to be a lot of work but would have hoped these scheduling issues would have been solved for the 4th edition.

Anyway we are still the 12th...
Come on GA!
