I can't believe this thing was your creation! I started =v=, began browsing throuh the ships, came across the Tornado and instantly decided I was going to get it.  I worked so hard to get this thing, and boy was it EPIC!   Such power was breathtaking to behold.  Such amazing memoreis with it!  (Then I got gate jumped by two tier III Rifters and lost all of my 200M ISK investment. :()

This just has to be my most favorite boat in Eve, followed closely by the Cane.

It's weird that Despite that huge contest of EVE online, there are not much EVE artwork on DA...

You gave EVE the Tornado.
To be honest: Great job & grats for winning. You got my fav :D

I just wanted to say that the Tornado quickly became one of my favorite ships in EVE Online after it was introduced. It's fun to use, looks good, and most importantly ---- it's vertical.
Ironsky9 Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012
this ship is legit :) what does it feel like designing something and then actually seeing it come to life like this in the game, musta been a bit surreal aye..
HealingBlight Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012
I have flown this ship.

Having just found out about this contest, just wanted to say something I'd figure the original designer would appreciate hearing. I'm aware that a lot of people have flown this. I am one of them, and it is cool. :)
therealjake Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2012
But maybe unfortunately it's a battlecruiser now and not a battleship... won't think of it as a battleship
HealingBlight Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2012
It hits like a battleship, feared throughout space and just like its namesake, the tornado does a lot of damage in a small amount of time.

I thin the creator would be proud to see so many of his ship on the killmails of fat and careless carebears. :)

how much fun is eve once you get deeper into the game?
VacuityMechanica Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012  Student Artist
Depends on who you fly with. Eve-O's fun increases greatly from the MM part of MMO.
CommanderA9 Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012
This makes me want to fly my Maelstrom to fly true Minmatar again! :D

Just looking at this design on the Wiki thinking how awesome it looks. Great work. Going to be buying one of these shortly!
ShadowHyperreal Featured By Owner May 12, 2012
Every time I see one of these works of art pass by me on EVE I get goose bumps. Incredible.

One of my favorites of the glass cannon cap-ship killers. Ridiculously fast.

Also, are you happy now? There's no hurricanes anymore cause everyone wants one of these.
JollyDGiant Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2012
Thanks for making a great ship ! I love the Minmatar Race, and i will proudly fly this ship :D

Smashed some customs offices with one of these a little bit ago.

Minmatar Rule! Thought I had this in my favs but guess not, time to fix that! Anyways, gonna get one of these things when I get the chance. A battlecruiser with battleship guns sounds fun.

Reminds me of the Gallente Frigate class Catalyst but with a slightly different shape to it.

T-F-O-I Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
why is the mimnitar the only exceptional one?, the gallente ship is useless it's just a domi with some extra armor, the caldari one is all right as it would even the playing field to match the rr domi fleet's prowess, but the amarr version is worthless what use is tracking disruption on a battleship?, i mean c'mon the only ship that you made here that would survive on it's own is the tornado, or maybe the abolition if it is scripted with optimal range disruption and is facing a blaster boat, redo the gallente boat give us something useful we deserve to have the best ship of a sub capital class, we've been nerfed to nubdom for 3 years

lgonggr Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2011
In a contest with many worthy entries, yours stood out as excellent. There were other ships I liked more for aesthetic reasons, not because their artwork was better, but as EVE seriously needs more vertical ships this got my vote as well
Amanokage Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2011
I think it should be named "Broken Boomerang". Hehe. This looks amazing though. Always loved the look of Minmatar ships. :)
Fantastic! =D

The image linked below just showed up on the EvE Facebook page. It's being made finally!

Prof-Nexus Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I like it and would buy it, but to be completely honest, i think there were other designs worthy of 1st place but that's down to personal preference. It's simple and sticks to Minmatar design so should be fairly easy to import into the game without any adjustments. This is the reason why some probably didn't win because of there drastic "out there" design. Does anyone know when are we likely to see this in-game ?

Great work and congrats on winning mate :)
