Well there goes theHunters Crediblity. Your word is only as good as it stands up to be. Which right now is pretty low. When you said competition it didn't say how many would enter. But it did say by community voting. But then again you have the right to change rules even if their wrong. So take my Word I am taking the game off my computer. Because one thing I can't stand is to be lied too. In God we Trust
As it was stated in the rules, "After the deadline the team will evaluate submissions and post the ones that qualify in the forums. Winners will be chosen by the community voting". The art team evaluated the submissions and, according to their opinion, only one qualified, i.e. only one had the necessary characteristics for the team to work on it and bring it into the game. It doesn't mean that all other submissions were bad, but the art team always has the last word on new content and they are extremely meticulous and thorough when it comes to the look and feel of theHunter.
Taking into account that there was only one submission that qualified, community voting has lost its sense, so has the awarding of the 2nd and 3rd places. I can understand that you might feel frustrated, because you spent time on creating your concept, but accusation of lying is a wee bit too strong here. We'll make sure to write the rules even more clear in the future, to avoid misunderstandings, although it's hardly possible to specify all possible scenarios. Please bear in mind that EW (as any other company and any other creator of the competition) always reserve the right to change the rules of our official competitions, if we think that the change will be for the benefit of the game and community.

In the last community competition, I've spent a lot of hours to show my idea.
I didn't count them, but I'm sure, I've spent more than 60 hours.
Because I'm a worse drawer, especially drawing people is hard for me and I have no drawing program so I had to do it again and again AND I WAS SURE THAT I WILL NOT WIN!
I read the forums so I was absolutely sure, that the most player would like to see something like the ghillie suit in the game and I was sure, that someone will create one.
But I didn't care, because I wanted to show my idea and I thought "Maybe you can make the 2nd or 3rd place and maybe your idea will get into the game some day in the future."
Of course, it was a bit disappointing to get only the last place.
But it was ok. The other ones have been very good. A few really nice ideas and a few excellent paintings and I had a fair chance and could show my idea as it was promised before.
Your design took the last place in the community voting, which was the final stage. There were a dozen great designs that were not even picked by the art team to go through to the final, so I think your result is still something to be proud of.
