Mod of the Year 2007 winner announced

Mod of the Year 2007 winner announced

Congratulations to Nick Falzone, creator of Yuugou - this year's bit-tech Mod of the Year.

Over the festive period, we ran our second annual Mod of the Year contest, and as I am sure you know we were determined to make this one special. Not only was it the biggest giveaway we’ve ever had on bit-tech but it has also been our most successful with more than double the number of votes we had in last year’s contest.

Given the standard of the mods published on bit-tech this year, we were expecting this one to be close and it sure was – the top three places were within a couple of percentage points of each other.

The winning mod, as voted for by the bit-tech community was Yuugou by Greensabbath – it edged out a lead right on the last day of voting and accounted for almost 22 percent of the total votes in this year’s contest.

A close second was LUMINA by Design_Master, while The Tetris Mod by Planet Express Klan was a worthy third.

Nick Falzone, creator of Yuugou, adds his first place this year to last year’s third place with his excellent Sangaku mod – congratulations from all of the bit-tech team. He walks away with a massive prize pool, which includes the following:We’d like to say a massive thanks to all of our sponsors this year, including those that were part of the frequent reader giveaways during the voting period. When you’re building your next rig, please consider using these companies’ products – without their support for the modding community, this competition wouldn’t have been as successful as it has been.

We’d also like to say a massive thanks to you, our readers, for participating in the contest and crowning bit-tech’s Mod of the Year. Next year, we plan to make the contest even better than this year – stay tuned for updates on that towards the end of the year!

Congratulations Greensabbath, well deserved win! It is a beautiful case that has inspired me and I'm sure many others to make better mods in the hope we can reach that level of quality one day. And congrats to all the others who placed and just made it to be a contender, all great mods with much work and skill involved!

I didn't vote for it, but I still like it because it's just so unique. I'll add my congrats too, you're pretty lucky getting all of that good stuff for free!

Congratulations! Although I didn't vote for this particular mod its still beautiful! Designing my own wooden case at the moment - won't be anything compared to this - just going for ease of build so far for my first mod!

Congratulations, well deserved. It would've been a shame if you didn't win because your votes got divided over two cases...

Great work Greensabbath, as everyone has said, you really deserve this.

I gotta get modding, the free kit you can win is just amazing me! ;):p

Hey everyone, sorry for not responding sooner, my internet decided to die right after i found out about the contest. I'd like to send a warm thanks to all the contestants and voters in this contest and especially the guys at bit-tech for working their asses off to make this whole thing possible. I'll have some smaller projects up in the worklog section soon that i hope you guys all like, but until then, thanks again for helping to make bit-tech the best place in the world for modding!

Some guys still didnt learn what is the true meaning of MOTY. This is a MOD of the Year contest, not a MODDER of the Year one...

Congrats GreenSabbath, Although I didnt vote for you, You are truly a master at your field, and the case did come up looking great, as all your work does :)
