Edit: I changed the number 1 pic to be the number 3 instead - as number 1 didnt get any votes.

Number 2, though the "World of Warcraft" text could be improved imo

2 - but considering the forums seem pretty Horde based an Elf seems an odd choice.

Maybe a montage of all the races? Or just scenery, maybe a shot of Shadowsond itself?

2 but text needs work

What exactley is the one above, looks like a half human half nightelf "something" :(

The blue elfish picture just seemed the right choice in colors for the top. I will also try different fonts.

It should also be noted that this isnt a final solution. The top image will (if I have anything to say about it), change now and then :)

The server is named after a nelf...maiev shadowsong ( is it ? ) :P

Or maybe the server was named after Maiev's littlebrother, Jarod.

(Not to mention the legendary fishing supplier in Teldrassil, Nessa Shadowsong and THE stable master of all stable masters named Fiskal Shadowsong in Blade's Edge Mountains.) :P

I'm liking number 3 at the moment. More votes?

I removed number 1 and put the Ord one instead as number 1 didnt get any votes !

Any way to make it random between number 2 and "3", to give horde and alliance a fair share of airtime?

Font looks better imo in the 3rd one, although the right side still feels a bit empty to me.

Well, now you also have to reset the votes to get any sense in this, seems like it could have been easier to make another poll. :)

Anyways, I'm still voting for the #2, Dramasong needs those dramatic eyes.

Its hard to make an image for th right size cause of the settings you can use in the top right corner. The graphics would have to work with those little icons, and still the site should be able to come in 3 sizes.

I agree with Jyra about having something a bit more neutral. How about Illidan, or some other cool looking bad guy?

Atm im bugging Turiel to make a solution where you can simply choose what template you would like - "Horde", "Alliance" etc.

That way I can also make more top images in the future :)

Lednar

Hmmm....this third option sounds better :P

The server is named after several nelfs, the main being maiev (Spelling ? -.-) shadowsong, why not just have her ?

or some other nelf..like you have done.

Ok - so people like the graphics but not the fonts - ill take a look at it when I get home to my 500+ fonts :(

Turiel
13-02-2007, 02:39 PM
I like the middle left font.

Magnar
13-02-2007, 02:43 PM
The fonts from left and down are called:

Quadaptor
Ringbearer
Morpheus
RoboKoz (upper rigth corner font)
Mael
Kino MT

Edit: eww just noticed that the ringbearer font is the LoTR font :(

So ill use the LOTR font for the Alliance top - it seems fitting for all you Legolas wannabe´s. And then ill choose a bloody evil font for the horde top :)

Both bottom fonts win Trolde.

Especially the elf one, which is spot on. (Glow matches the elf very well, it also fills the picture nicely, making the overall picture very balanced)

Orc one is very fitting, although it could use a little more contrast with the background.

edit: Could use the top font too for the orc, it's actually nice and bloody, just needs a bit of blood colour... maybe a red font with a green glow, or vise verrsa.
