    The term soccer may be recognised a a word for the game sure, that doesn't mean that we call it that.

    Most sports in america are just an angle on other sports.

    Ie - American football is just rugby for camp men, maybe a bit of Gallic football in there also.

    baseball - is just a twist on cricket or rounders.

    Basketball, lacrosse and netball is the only few Sports that Americans invented.

    Basketball is a variant on "korfbal".

    Awe, I custom made a PC case but it has no football in it. Maybe if I can manage to stick a real soccer ball inside it and send it in?

    Is a case-build also allowed? I'm planning to make one with football as the theme.

    Hi All,

    I have a posted worklog here: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=118674 and am a relatively new member. Having competed in a couple of contests (including the Cooler Master Modding Contest 2009 Worldwide Edition), my questions (might be similar to others too) are:

    -Is there an area/section for posting and can we open a thread of our project?
    -Is a worklog necessary to prove the mod is ours? Some users can Photoshop so well that it would be indistinguishable from physical work done on the project.
    -Are there any categories that separate hobbyist from the "pros" that may even have laser cutters?
    -Does the hardware content count?
    -What is sought after: looks (just final pics) or how the final product was reached (worklog)?
    -Is there a safeguard to avoid a "popularity" contest vs. a mod contest?
    -Is there a minimum amount of time or posts by the members to make them eligible to vote? Country voting is possible, in other words, a bunch of guys from a given country could register for the sole purpose of voting in favor of their fellow citizen's mod-and I have seen that some countries can muster thousands of votes!

    I can't think of any more points at the moment but these are concerns of any serious modder that may compete. I would suppose that the intent is to get some great and well done entries. Muchas Gracias in advance for answering these doubts.

    Cheers and Saludos

    P.D. I know the guy that posted above, hehe.

    PaPang am glad to see you here I think this is just a modding contest nothing fancy if you can paint and do some crazy stuff you are good to go... but I also was wondering about the worklog or just post the final picture here or email it to you guys... :)

    I know I have been off of the forum for a while but I have a new project and some updates from my last project. Hope to learn more about this soon, its sounds kind of crazy and unique!

    :)

    Entry to the Football Fever Contest

    Worklog - Football Fever
    By Coolone


    a. Name of mod:
    Command & Conquer 4 Tiberian Twilight – Portable High-end Gaming Case Mod



    b. Description of my case mod:

    Idea
    Since I love to play the nice Command & Conquer strategy games, I thought it could be nice to have
    and Command & Conquer Gaming Laptop.

    So I decided to build up a Portable High-end Gaming Case Mod out of an aluminium suitcase and some
    EA Command & Conquer 4 Tiberian Twilight game poster I got from EA Nordic.

    d. Build Phase - Football Fever

    For the great Football Fever Contest I have decided to make a new Hardware Protection shield
    with the Cooler Master, EVGA, and TechPowerUp! brand names/logo built into a South Africa
    Football Globe.


    First of all I have made some drawings of some football pictures on a Plexiglas plate, later on I have used
    the saw you could see in the pictures to cut the football art work out of the new Cooling - Noise reduction
    - Hardware Protection shield.

    Pictures of the Cooling - Noise reduction - Hardware Protection shield with football art work I have made

    In the next step I have cut some football players out of a 6 mm Plexiglas plate.

    Hi

    Hi Coolone,

    Still remember you from the CM Contest 2009 and your ingenious Eizo Monitor mod. I wasn't sure what I could enter/propose for this contest but you gave me an idea--to revamp a previous mod into the new theme-ingenious again, hehe.

    So we have till the end of August, so lets see what I think up. Nice to see you again!

    Cheers and Saludos
