Pontifex Contest 11 Results


Here's the statistics: 42 bridges, 37 legit ones. I have to ask - why, oh why do the poll results on the front page say Pontifex I is the least fun CL game? I was really amazed at how many great different bridges were submitted this time! The no-cable rule turned out to be a refreshing change that made people think in new ways, making creativity at least as important a factor as the 'regular tweaking skills'.

The battle for the medals was really fierce, and, in fact, the majority of the 'clean' bridges are really damn good. I hadn't really had the time to build a contest bridge myself before I got 'spoiled' when I saw the first submissions, but I have major doubts I would have made it into the top five. Way to go guys!

I'm sorry I had to disqualify a couple of bridges because of train-beam and beam-terrain intersection, maybe the rules were a bit too strict there... However, I'm sure they were stated very clearly (what with the illustrated clarifications ;) ), so it was once again just a matter of "RTFR" ;-)

Also, remember: there's no need to rush your submission, take your time and make sure everything's OK. Feel free to ask questions. Send me an e-mail or use the forum.

As always, any comments on the contest are really welcome. Please post your thoughts in this forum thread.
