JUDGES #SNAPASTORY AUGUST 2019

Contest judges interview.

These are the winners of the previous #FFXIVSnapAStory contest, held in June, and they return as judges for our August edition!


Becchan
1st place


Race:  Au’ra/Miqo’te
Server:  Zodiark
Social media: @aineffxiv on Twitter and Instagram
Tools used for screenshots: Gshade & Photoshop



How and when did you start taking pictures in FFXIV? Show us your oldest picture and your most recent one!

I mostly started to take screenshots after five seconds I started playing the free trial because it was one of the main reason I started playing the game, to be honest… but as you can see I couldn’t achieve what I hoped for at the time. cough Luckily I improved a bit later on!



Explain to us your favorite glamour set:

This glamour set is my favorite Samurai one until now, mostly because I feel attached to it. It was created on purpose for the last #bestffxivsnaps contest, and It was the first time I took the time to think about how to make it complete. One of my rules was to try to not use pieces of the same set and try to follow the theme as its best! And actually, I really like how it ended up to be!



Which is your greatest achievement/s in FFXIV? 

I would say my biggest achievements were two: the first one is about finishing the long adventure of ARR, the sadness of being a little sprout while your friends were getting ready to go through the new expansions was there for a bit but luckily they didn’t forget about me aha! The second one is about reaching HW and meeting a special character I was waiting for… Aymeric! Even before starting to play ffxiv I had seen multiple pictures about him around and I was always curious because everyone loved him and he didn’t fail my expectations, can’t wait to dig more in and find out more!


Moriana
2nd place


Race:  Miqote (Keeper of the moon)
Server:  Ragnarok
Social media: @fendleciel on Twitter
Tools used for screenshots: I use only the basic /gpose. Until now, it’s enough for me!



How and when did you start taking pictures in FFXIV? Show us your oldest picture and your most recent one!

I started taking screenshots very soon. It was mostly to keep reminders of my adventure in Eorzea. Taking real pictures into the game came little by little, with gpose. But the stimulus was a friend talking about FFXIV pictures communities on twitter, and here I am!
I dare anyone to show an older picture! (2010, September 30th, I assume showing an alpha test of 1.0 now is not a problem…?)



Explain to us your favorite glamour set:

My favourite glamour is my paladin glamour, and I have difficulties to change it! I like the ideas of the black paladin, in armor, sober but doing the job. I added also a few laces, for the feminine touch.



Which is your greatest achievement/s in FFXIV? 

I am not a hardcore player… But at least, I was here for each event! At least at 2.0. It gives us nice outfits and items over the years.


Xivi
3rd place


Race: Miqo’te
Server:  Zodiark
Social media: @ffxiv_xivi on Twitter
Tools used for screenshots: GPOSE, GShade & Photoshop


How and when did you start taking pictures in FFXIV? Show us your oldest picture and your most recent one!

I started taking GPOSE photos after wanting to remember a lot of special moments I have with my wife. At the start I wasn’t the best (Unsurprisingly), through the time I discovered more and more and got pretty great at it in the end! To be more specific I started taking GPOSE photos around August of 2018.



Explain to us your favorite glamour set:

My favorite glamour set has to be my Samurai one! I made it with the intention of giving out the modern-day era samurai vibe while still trying to stick to some old-fashioned robes. It’s my favorite one I designed myself!



Which is your greatest achievement/s in FFXIV? 

My biggest achievement would be getting the Pegasus Mount! I and my wife love it and the grind was worth it!
