    Sadly I feel this way.

    +1 to this if there was a mod contest.

    All these "case modders" will just contact sponsors they get THOUSANDS of dollars of stuff for free Weekly to monthly and just Bearly do anything.

    Show it off at a Few Events, and thats all.

    Win stuff, get stuff, bearly do stuff.

    Really...Dont get me going guys...

    I use the products what they are for, and nothing else.

    I am a Enthusiast Gamer Im pro and bad at games but even so I use what I need and how I want it, If I dont like the look, Id buy something else instead, simple as that.

    I dont like Editing the models of things, Why else do companies spend money on designers for the products? I like things how they are sent out, and im pretty sure the manufacturers think the same thing.

    Well, your perception is a bit off here. I know and have talked extensively with some of the most successful members in the modding community (meaning the ones who get sponsorships regularly) and it's not all parties and free product. I'd say that Darth Beavis has been one of the most successful in terms of developing contacts and being able to call for product on demand but even he spends more of his own money on modding in one month than most of us spend on all our PC parts for an entire year. Part of that is due to the fact that not all product is sponsored for all builds which means that anything missing comes out of the modder's pocket. And the rest comes from the fact that doing mods at that level requires custom work that you can't just buy off of a shelf. The raw materials and tools to shape them to your will are expensive on their own. It has come to a point where he is in semi-retirement partly because modding is so fricken expensive to keep up even when you are sponsored.

    But regardless of what the big names in modding can or can't do, that's why DB created this thread. He's asking us to come up with what we'd like to see and if that means no sponsored mods and we all agree on it, that's what we'll do.

    I left this open-ended for reason if you would like to see it be a super clean and awesome build using only off the shelf products then say so. I am receptive to that as well.

    Darth I've seen a few of your mod's over the years including the ones you took to some of the PDXLan events. I can't remember ever that you were lacking for Ideas... but I'm sure you remember the good o'l days of modding. That's what I was trying to accomplish with the mod I was doing here on the forums and what I personally like to see more of with today's hardware. I think you get the picture there. The old stuff had more class and sparkle that a lot of what's just thrown together today and called a mod!

    Go back 10 years ago, casemod is so simple, so creative, so much pride
    Now with all the high tech stuff, more expensive mods will win.

    Then let's make a contest where creativity is rewarded over expense. What rules do you think would help to achieve that?

    Yes guys I know, Im just really sick of case moding lately... Theres no love for gamers anymore, As I said this is a personal Opinion I dont hate all, just most.

    If there was a case modding compitition make it from all scratch based on non shelf products.

    Well, I don't think this is the case at all based on my own experience but perhaps your experiences or expectations are different than mine. I'd be interested to hear your reasons why you say that. Are we talking about love from media? Love from industry? Love in the form of recognition? Please start a thread and lay it all out. I promise I'll read it and give a thoughtful response. We're almost all gamers here so it could be an interesting topic.

    Then there aren't many people with the good hand skill, or have a lot of time to finish the project on time.
    But I like the idea, base on the pride of the work project.

    @ xer0: I'm not sure if there will need a lots of rules, how about rules just base on each kind of competition ??? ..... Does it sound too complicate ???

    Im talking about companies who sponsor Xeromist, they only want to sponsor modders, instead of some gamers who actually use the product what it is for.

    I should pm you my NZXT Experience you will have a whole new view on them.
