Well, we did it folks. After a long and electrifying road chock full of twists, turns, drama, intrigue, underdogs, overdogs, and all dogs in between, we've finally come to the end of the road. We've seen a lot over these last weeks: manufacturers fighting themselves, snub craft taking down much larger competition, classic grudge matches, and shots at sweet redemption. We've laughed, we've cried, we've taken to the skies, and now that the smoke has cleared, it seems as if a prodigal child has returned to the mountain top. That's right folks, the mighty Anvil Carrack, after taking 2951 off (it was probably out exploring something), comes back in a major way to steal another victory from the clutches of the beleaguered Mercury. Sorry smugglers and Crusader heads, turns out Carrack maybe actually is life after all. At least until next year's Showdown.
All four ships that made it into the semi-finals (the Mercury, Carrack, Scorpius, and C8X) will receive a limited edition paint option as well as Manufacturer challenge coin, available to all owners of these ships, with your winner, the Anvil Carrack, being immortalized as an epic, collectable in-game ship model.
We thank you for participating in another amazing Showdown. We'll see you back here next year for more thrills, chills, spills, and non-stop aerospace action.
