Contest Page

Contests are an active area of the HeavyMetal Forums. Each new contest will be posted below in the Current Contests listings, and when winners are determined, they will then be posted in the Winners listings.

Please check back often to see and participating in new contests. I encourage everyone to participate in both the contests and the HeavyMetal Forums in general. It is a fun place to meet and discuss topics of interest to most everyone.

Winners of Previous Contests

When winners are selected and posted, a link will be posted here to an HTML page of the design, as well as a downloadable data file. But second place is probably well worth downloading too, so be sure to check out all the designs submitted on the forums, most of which should also be found on the User Submissions area.

Contest #1 Winner: Fastest Level 2 Battle-Worthy Design

  • Can be any BattleTech unit, capable of dealing out at least 4 points of 'Mech-scale damage, and must have at least 20 armor points. The Moray Hydrofoil is capable of almost 443 km/h (275 mph).

Contest #1a Winner: Fastest Level 2 non-naval Battle-Worthy Design

  • Must be a BattleMech, capable of dealing out at least 4 points of 'Mech-scale damage, and must have at least 20 armor points. The BattleBee VTOL is capable of over 410 km/h (255 mph).

Contest #2 Winner: Fastest Level 3 Battle-Worthy Design

Contest #3 Winner: Highest Battle Value Level 2 'Mech

  • Must be a Level 1 or 2 BattleMech. That's pretty much it. The winner has an astounding 3725 BV!

Contest #4 Winner: Highest Battle Value Level 3 'Mech

  • Must be a Level 3 BattleMech, but not an LAM (see contest below for them). Take a look at this one, with a final BV of 6007.

Contest #5 Winner: Highest Battle Value LAM (Land Air 'Mech)

  • It's pretty much common knowledge that the best way to boost Battle Value is to have a Land Air 'Mech, and this one's a honey! Can you say "8067 Battle Value"?

Contest #6: Highest Cost Level 1 BattleMech

  • Almost 12 millions C-Bills, and it doesn't even have an XL? Yeah, these Highest Cost designs are often silly. But somebody asked, so we had to answer the question, right?

Contest #7: Highest Cost Level 2 BattleMech

  • A Level 2 BattleMech that costs over 50 million C-Bills, huh? Yeah, it's getting even sillier. But someone had to do it, so why not right here at HeavyMetalPro.com?

Contest #8: Highest Cost Level 3 BattleMech

  • As they say, if you have to ask, you can't afford it. That's certainly the case with this Level 3 BattleMech with a sticker price of over 300 million C-Bills! Yep, that Silly, with a capital S, or Silly on a whole new level. But we knew you'd want to know, so here it is.  ;-)

Contest #9: Most Improved Inner Sphere BattleMech

  • A new type of contest: after posting all the designs, forum members voted in a poll to determine the winner! Quite a nice mix of greatly improved designs, and a jumping Hussar came out on top!

Contest #10: Most Improved Clan BattleMech

  • The second contest where designs are posted, and then forum members vote to determine the winner! The winner this time is a Dire Wolf variant.

Contest #11: Highest BV ICE-Engined BattleMech

  • Even at during the introduction of BattleMechs, before Fusion engines were used, they were a force to content with. Enter your design here for this novel contest.
