Group 5: The Legacy Icon Set

Voting went back and forth all week, and unlike all the other groups, with no clear leader established...

So, Dipsy has agreed to find a way to have both Legacy leaders "win". He will be increasing the number of sets to 7 in order to have both!

The Original PlayDip Icon Set - Image Image

and the

Stars & Anchors Board Set - Image Image (concept by asudevil)

Will BOTH be available.

YAY! While I mourn the loss of the dinosaur, I appreciate that both the most loved legacy icon sets have been chosen. Good job to the designers of the new icons and thanks to the admin!!

Lukan, people chose this cannon graphic. Many think it is a pretty good looking cannon, legacy or not. Going forward, there are 5 icon sets that will not include the cannon. The same number of icon sets that didn't include this cannon before the vote. Also, feel free to submit your own graphic next time we review the icons.

Oh, as an aside, of the 6 graphics of mechanisms to project a shell (cannon/artillery/tank), this legacy cannon graphic got more votes than all but the tank.

I can't claim stars and anchors...that was from someone else the last time these went through. I just like them.

asudevil, you get credit for bringing them up again. I like them too and I for one, am glad you remembered to mention them.

It seems like we need some sort of Dino Support Group or Crisis Team on the PlayDip site. So many mourners... :cry:

I think the real issue is the loss of the cannons. Cannons are an integral part of the game and many many more players rely on them and expect to use them than dinos or Griffins or even soldiers. And to replace them with 'canons'? I mean I'm sure we get funds for product placement and all but I think it'll will surely not fit in with the games and end up making this place look far too commercial.
