Happy Monday, everyone!
Ship Showdown Phase 1 comes to an end today and we’re amazed by all of the fantastic submissions we’ve seen come through. You gave us screenshots, videos, 3D-printed models, Lego miniatures, music, and in the process, our 16 finalists for Phase 2! Folks, you are breathtaking. If you haven’t checked out the masterpieces of creativity, take a look now.
Speaking of art, we launched our Star Citizen Cosplay Contest last week and we’re ready to see what you can do! There are prizes to win and eternal glory for the best submissions, so fire up your sewing machine, and heat up the glue gun!
Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:
On Tuesday, you’ll learn everything about weapon manufacturer MaxOx in our Narrative Team’s latest Portfolio.
On Wednesday, we hope you’re in the mood for action, as Ship Showdown Phase Two kicks off with daily head-to-head battles! It’s entirely up to you which community darling carries on in the contest, so be sure to check back the Ship Showdown 2950 page daily. We won’t stop until a champion is crowned! Similar to last year, we’ve got some sweet prizes we’re working on for the final 4 and champion… more soon.
Also kicking off with Phase 2 is the Ship Showdown Free Fly! That’s right, all 16 ships nominated by YOU will be flyable for free from September 9th through the 23rd! Two weeks! Stay tuned for more information.
Also on Wednesday, Subscribers can also look forward to their monthly Comm-Link, providing all the important information about the month ahead, and the Subscriber newsletter delivered to their inboxes.
This Thursday, Inside Star Citizen is back with updates about the Origin 100 Series and the front-end rework coming in Alpha 3.11.
On Friday, Star Citizen Live welcomes Ship Showdown LIVE on our Twitch channel at 9am Pacific / 4pm UTC, where we’ll review (and probably argue) the top 16. We’ll update this Comm-Link with the air time soon, so keep your eyes open. Last but not least, you’ll see a Roadmap Update and Roundup, an update to the Subscriber Vault, and the RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox.
Have a great week, and may the best ship win. I will now continue to practice my ferocious “Let’s get ready to rumble” for Ship Showdown’s head-to-head phase.
