Blizzard Entertainment's 20th Anniversary led to the creation of a contest to help celebrate the occassion. Now, with the finalists in line for voting by Blizzard's own fans, one entry stands out in particular. Laconius, himself, resides in the list of potential winners. Show your Campaign Creations support and vote for one of the top campaign creators to ever reach (if not surpass) the level of Blizzard's own map developers for StarCraft. You can find Laconius' entry as the only entry utilizing only StarCraft footage. Click here to go vote on your favorite videos.

As part of Blizzard Entertainment's twentieth anniversary celebration, we announced the Memories of Blizzard video contest, in which we invited you to share your Blizzard game-related memories with us by sending in your creative and touching videos.

Now the submission deadline has passed, and we've selected our favorites to go up on the contest page. The contest isn't over yet though! You can still play a role in shaping this Blizzard memory by visiting the contest page and voting on your favorite videos.

Tell your friends, WB, and screw WoW! There's one SC video, one Diablo video, and the rest are WoW or WC3 evolving to WoW.

Thanks for the support guys, I really appreciate it :D

Edit: Oh yeah, I should probably mention that the only reason I was able to submit my entry on time was because Isk worked his ass off editing it for me at the last minute. DOMO ARIGATO SIR

So who do I vote for? I really like to vote for Choi's work. The overmind voice was 99% spot on.

Is the contest winner voted for through the Facebook likes button? Doesn't seem to have any other means of voting so I voted through that, unless I missed it.

It is, which I think is ridiculous. I suppose it's to prevent voting multiple times, but the requirement of a Facebook account is ridiculous.

Yeah, and a stupid idea too Lav. Too many mindless sheep, figuratively speaking, to warrant anyone who put actual effort into their video winning. Mindless sheep being the folks who over glorify the whole WoW stuff.

From a personal perspective, it probably would've been a smarter move to require the voter to vote through logging into their battle.net account and limit it the same way as with the facebook crap.

Well most people live on Facebook these days, but it is still ridiculous that votes are done through it.

Facebook is chic shit man! Real dudes would never succumb to being a part of that world yet alone create an account. :) Sucks tho not being able to vote. Oh well. Gluck Lacon.
