  • Big News TF2: Polycount Pack, Week 5 Check-in

    June 28, 2010 by adam

    5 weeks have now passed for the Team Fortress 2: Polycount Pack contest and that can only mean one thing: THE CONTEST HAS ENDED.

    If you read all of the Rules & Submission Guidelines, then you knew you had to have your entry submitted by 00:01 PST on June 28th, 2010 to eligible for the Polycount Pack. With all of the amazing entries in this contest, we really hope everyone did read all of the rules! Just to refresh your memory, why not go over the Contest page one more time as there may have been a tidbit or two that you’ve missed when submitting your entry.

    As I mentioned in Sunday’s 11th Hour post, it is recommended that anyone who’s entering this contest updates their original post with their final images for this contest. It’ll make the lives of everyone involved easier when trying to find your final shots.



    We have a surprise for everyone who’s finished & submitted their entry for this contest. YES – EVERYONE who’s entered!* For your efforts in this contest, Valve is going to give each of you your very own GREENTOOTH PIN to wear in Team Fortress 2.

    HUGE thanks to Polycount Member 'DKK' for creating this for the contest!!!

    *Which makes it all that more important that you follow the submission guidelines found on the contest page.


    Now then, instead of listing the great entries found in Week 5, here are great entries created throughout the entire contest. Great job everyone! Valve has their work cut out for them, as they’ll be announcing the winners on July 12th, 2010.

    Some of the many amazing entries for the TF2: Polycount Pack

You should do your eyeballs a favour and head on in to the Contest & Challenges Forum and view the hundreds of entries that are going to keep Valve busy.


    Tune in July 12th, 2010 for the announcement of the winners of the TF2: Polycount Pack contest!

      The "VIEW THREAD" linking to Gerre's thread is broken.

      Anywho, I LOVE THESE PACKS AMFG!@!#@!@$#!

    2. bounchfx on June 28, 2010 at 12:26 pm

      These are fucking awesome. Wish I had the time to contribute something :(

    3. Emil Mujanovic on June 28, 2010 at 12:32 pm

      Thanks for the heads up, Al Capwn. It should be fixed now.

      I'm really impressed with the results of this contest, I'm disappointed I didn't get a chance to participate but somehow I don't think I could have competed with the quality of some of the final entries of this contest.

      It's going to be a tough job for Valve to judge this contest.

      Best of luck to everyone.

    4. Swizzle on June 28, 2010 at 12:47 pm

      WOO! Congratulations to all who finished. There's some really impressive work on display here.

    5. Mico27 on June 28, 2010 at 1:01 pm

      I dont even care if I dont win anymore! there are so many quality packs that just having most of them ingame would be a godsend!

      Good job everyone! you all deserve a good rest!

    6. ScudzAlmighty on June 28, 2010 at 1:24 pm

      y'know what that is? BADASS! that's what that is :)

      so many awesome entries and a greentooth to boot!
      It's gonna be like christmas, but with weapons…
      so I guess it'll be like christmas in Narnia?

      P.S. if you take the "WIP" part out of my img tag there you should get the final pic instead of the wip one from a week ago;)

    7. Gerre on June 28, 2010 at 1:44 pm

      This contest was awesome, so much nice stuff was made. I want it all in game!
      Great that they accepted the proposition for the greentooth pin, Valve are such swell guys :)
      I'm going to wear it with pride.

    8. Michael01 on June 28, 2010 at 1:51 pm

    10. Communist Cake on June 28, 2010 at 2:50 pm

      If I messed up on submitting my stuff, can I resubmit?

    11. adam on June 28, 2010 at 2:55 pm

      Communist Cake – Yes, definitely!

    12. RossC on June 28, 2010 at 3:13 pm

      I had a real fun time working on my entry and is was great to see everyone else awesome work. And the Greentooth badge is just a awesome way of rewarding everyone for working hard on their entries. Good call and good luck everyone!

    13. DKK on June 28, 2010 at 4:55 pm


    14. Jackablade on June 28, 2010 at 5:41 pm

      Oww, that cute Greentooth badge is kinda salting my not-having-time-to-finish wounds.

      Anyway, best of luck to you folks. There's an awful lot of talent being thrown around in this comp.

    15. Sparkwire on June 28, 2010 at 7:35 pm

      Do i get a badge thing even though i didnt finish?

    16. adam on June 28, 2010 at 7:45 pm

      You would have to submit a complete entry to receive a badge.

      Sparkwire, check your PM.

    17. adam on June 28, 2010 at 10:04 pm

      Congrats everyone! Kotaku'd!

    18. Swizzle on June 28, 2010 at 11:18 pm

      Oh ho! Look at Mr. Fancypants Polycount getting on the gaming news blogs.

    19. Sn1pe on June 29, 2010 at 1:31 am

      They should just say screw it and have everything win.

    20. BANG! on June 29, 2010 at 1:46 am

      This was an amazing contest, congrats to all participants I wish everyone could win there's so many good entries, best of luck to all!

      And thanks PolyCount and Valve for this contest =)

    21. butt_sahib on June 29, 2010 at 2:45 am

      We definitely need alot more contests like these in the future… after all, thats what made polycount polycount :)

    22. Buck on June 29, 2010 at 2:57 am

      Im happy about the competitiion, made me find this forum and actually finish something decent :)

    23. EVIL on June 29, 2010 at 3:15 am

      It would be nice somehow to receive an email or something if things aren't submitted properly. So many things can go wrong when uploading stuff.

      That aside.. OMG! what an awesome contest this was! Learned so much in such a short time, my head still hurts.
      Congrats to all the people who finished and good luck in this contest!

    24. ianucci on June 29, 2010 at 6:32 am

      I had a lot of fun with this contest! So much great work from everyone.

    25. The Scrub on June 29, 2010 at 7:24 am

      Great contest. I get a little badge *glee* to use instead of my bronze.
      just wish I had more time to learn more about modeling and texturing of all things.
      I'm glad that there are such contests. really lets the community shine

    26. Tumerboy on June 29, 2010 at 8:49 am

      Congrats to all you dudes who have been doing amazing things here. I'm always impressed by the shit you guys come up with, and the quality with which you do it. THUMBS UP!

    27. Zack Fowler on June 29, 2010 at 10:52 am

      Congrats everyone! Excellent work!

      Could someone rehost the missing images on a dropbox?

    28. Progg on June 29, 2010 at 11:00 am

      This post is full of pyro hate.

    29. duoxan on June 29, 2010 at 11:20 am

      awesome work everybody, super stoked for the pin. thanks all for the support and tips and cant wait to see some of this stuff in game!

    30. adam on June 29, 2010 at 2:53 pm

      Just a reminder guys: The pin is for anyone who finished and submitted! No love for slackers! MwuahahAha..
      .. ahem.

      Sorry, carry on.

    31. Monkeez on June 29, 2010 at 9:04 pm

      Hey, my picture link is fixed now. Sorry about that guys.

    32. Norron on June 30, 2010 at 6:01 pm

      We did good!

    33. Dr.Eggman on July 1, 2010 at 4:43 am

      Valve will be use packs only from this? on from all 73?

    34. The Patriot on July 1, 2010 at 1:40 pm

      When does people get the pin?already given out or given out the day the winners are announced? initially i hoped to win (as with everyone),but all these make mine look even worse than it already is…

    35. EVIL on July 1, 2010 at 4:06 pm

      dr. Eggman, learn to read!

    36. Lol PLZ! on July 1, 2010 at 9:48 pm

      I'm sorry to ask, but does this guy get it?
      I mean if he does, anyone who just tried should get the badge. That is my honest opinion on how it should work. One guy spent more time on a uncompleted model that this guy spent on all his models.

    37. EVIL on July 2, 2010 at 1:08 am

      LOL, you are a dick!

      This guy has very little experience but at least he tried and send something in! Hell it might not be the best game art you have ever seen but at least he did something! plus you have no idea in how much effort he put into it! Hell for all we know it was allot more then laro for example. It takes allot of effort to start fully inexperienced with a very strange free modeling program. I was surprised he came this far! so yeah, this guy deserved the greentooth.

      If you wanted it as well then you should have done something!

    38. Joe Inky on July 2, 2010 at 1:23 am

      Yeah, you really shouldn't get a pin if you didn't finish your entry, I didn't finish my third item but I still don't believe I should get a pin 'just for showing up'.
