December Challenge 2021 Winner

Happy New Year! The winner for our December 2021 challenge on the theme of Unfettered and Free was Daiyu Elani! Taking the theme at its most literal, she held a dance party with everyone’s favorite Lord of the Revel.

Congratulations! We’ll be announcing the first challenge of 2022 shortly.

The ENTM hosts are also discussing our first longer cycle of the year. Note that due to the server congestion issues, we still have a hold on spoilers past the level 85 MSQ since so few folks have been able to complete the story as planned over the break. As a result, any longer cycles are more likely to take place once we know that all the participants have access to the game during their playable hours. Please be patient with us, as SE has asked for patience as well. (I also work in business technology and I am all too painfully aware of the server shortage since it’s impacting the long term plans of my department in the real world as well….)

November Challenge 2021 Winner

The temperature has plunged outside and with that comes all the joys of the approaching winter, including the warmest fashionable attire we can all muster for the Sweater Weather. This month, Forthyn S’yel wore it best with his lovely shot looking at the auraras in Coerthas.

Congratulations! The December challenge will be posted shortly. (Note that to avoid spoilers, we may ask you to avoid certain Endwalker zones for just this month.)

November Challenge 2021

It’s a new month and time for a new challenge! For the month of November, let’s celebrate mother nature cranking down the temperature and show us a shot with the theme of Sweater Weather. This theme is completely open ended (no actual sweaters need be harmed in the making of your screen shot.)

Because of Endwalker, submissions for this challenge will be open for a shorter window than normal: You have until the servers go down and early access starts on or around November 18th to submit a shot! Don’t wait until the last minute for this one because that last minute is going to be in just two weeks!

As always, the prize for the challenge includes a minion from the Mogstation (or item of similar value), your shot on the banner of our front page, and the right to choose the challenge for the next month.
