FOAT Contest - September 12 2020

FOAT Contest = Fanciest Of All Time Contest


The contest’s purpose will be for users to try to create the most fashionable/fanciest mechs they can make. There will be a 3x mech contest and a 1x mech contest.

An example of a fashionable mech lineup may be:


-The contest will have 5 judges (not allowed in the contest).
-Legacy items are allowed.
-Photoshop/editing is not allowed.
-Mechs are judged by how “cool” they look.
-1 submission allowed for 1x mech contest and 1 submission allowed for 3x mech contest.


You must send your screenshot(s) for 1x mech contest and 3x mech contest to @Pavic by Saturday, September 12th 2020 10:00am eastern time.

Winner’s Prize:

-Premium Pack
-Forum Title

Are you interested in creating a FOAT Contest?!

Proposed Rules:

-Mechs must be built in-game (no photoshop, etc.)
-Mechs must have some sense of visual appeal
-Mechs needs to be playable (although not good) - so weight limits apply
-Needs at least 3 judges, of an odd amount to prevent ties (I also want to win, so I will not judge!)

Because I only only have 1 mech with full paint, I would like to have a 1x mech fashion show. We could have 3 separate FOATs (1x 2x 3x) and choose 1 winner from each. Winner of 3x would be the overall winner and get the perk.


This one is built in game! (are memes allowed)


Must be real/usable mech with no photoshop/editing/misleading graphics. So to be clear, it should be something you can make and not edit, etc.

If so, then yes you may use that :slight_smile:

Don’t know about the perk, someone have to make it and i doubt devs feel like it lol.

They could probably ask someone from the fanart thread




Let’s hold off on submissions now. Let’s try to establish the baseline rules and see if we can improve/edit idea any further first!

Some further questions:

-How many entries should be allowed?

  • 1
  • 2
  • 3

0 voters

-How do we judge mechs?

  • By color matching (heat with red, physical with yellow, energy with blue).
  • By how “cool” it looks.
  • By how rare the items are.
  • Holistic (some combination of all of these)

-How can we make this contest so more people can enter?


I feel like image editing should be allowed
how is somebody with no tokens for paint and no duplicate items gonna win if no editing?
Edit: someone who is like rank 20 could still make something like this

and then everybody is on an even playing field

Well I feel like less people can edit than people that can just submit in-game mechs. Perhaps there can be another version of contest with editing allowed? I think similar to GOAT tournament, needs to be grounded in realistic characteristics of game?


i’am gonna try with my outfit for wedding and funeral


lol. Yes good - no entries just yet though! (save your secrets)

For strategy purposes, probably best not to post your mechs here, so no one can copy/improve on them :slight_smile:


1 entry

As I said before, we’ll have 3 separate FOATs. Create a poll with everyone’s entry for each FOAT and have people vote for their favorites, allow 3 votes, but no voting for your own mech.

Maybe announce it on your YouTube channel.

Thanks. I edited post above to allow voting for some questions. Still need help on how to get more of community involved.

Edit: Perhaps SM YouTubers can help spread word so it reaches beyond forums?


Also, if this doesn’t work out you could (possibly) make a YouTube video out of the Mechs submitted.


Great idea!

Looks like Banshee time has come


LOL it looks like this XDScreenshot_2020-07-26-19-55-44-1


Could always be a GOAT perk, but painted with mystique paint xD
