🎨🎨🎨 Iron Hideout Competition #4 🎨🎨🎨



Welcome, this is the fourth Iron Hideout Competition, a friendly event and something to have some fun with during the league. Made by the community, for the community. No entry fee, no cost, just some good ole fashioned fun. Build a hideout base on a specified theme, vote for your choices and enjoy some community offered prizes.

This is totally unofficial and hosted by FallMakesHideouts and Guggelhupf.

Original competition created by Pixxelkick.

Alright, so lets dig in!





This is a community made event. Build a hideout base on a specified theme, vote for your choices and enjoy some community offered prizes. Anyone can submit hideouts they have designed, however we have a few rules on what counts as a valid hideout for the competition, to keep things fair, see Rules below.

Once the submission period is over, the community will have a few weeks to vote on their favourite hideouts that were submitted. Then, we will announce top voted hideouts.

We run this event as something to do for fun as people finish league goals.

Past Competitions
* IHC #1 (created by Pixxelkick)
* IHC #2 (hosted by Fall, Guggelhupf, Synopsis)
* IHC #3 (hosted by Fall, Guggelhupf)





Name and idea are by Pixxelkick. The inspiration for this event is the show Iron Chef! Like the show, entries must follow a specified theme. And what is that theme? Well, that will be announced soon.





Theme vote starts: Sunday, 21 February 2021, 8 AM EST
Theme announced, submissions open: Saturday, 27 February 2021, 8 AM EST
Submissions close, community voting opens: Saturday, 20 March 2021, 8 AM EST
Voting closes: Wednesday, 24 March 2021, 8 AM EST. Winners will get announced soon after.








Theme that will be used is community voted. Cast your vote here.

This theme can take many forms, and we welcome artistic liberties to be taken on the thematic concept. Your hideout MUST fit this theme! Stories, lore, etc are encouraged but make sure the theme is seen in the hideout, the story should not be the only place the theme is.





By popular request. You may submit to one or both categories. Both categories have separate submissions and voting. Important: MTX category is by popular request, but due to limited prizepool (this is a player run event) prizes will be for the non MTX category.

Non MTX category: No MTX hideouts or decorations. Can only be a hideout you could obtain via normal means in game without spending any currency in the MTX shop. It must be 100% decorations from Favor (Excluding "Free" decorations like crafting bench of course). This is the main category.

MTX category: All hideout bases and decorations are allowed.





We contacted GGG and while we are allowed to have the event, we are not allowed to have any sort of ingame prizepool (so no exalts, sorry!) The community has generously offered some prizes. Send a message to FallMakesHideouts or Guggelhupf if you want to add to the list!

Due to limited prizepool (this is a player run event) prizes for the top 3 are only for the non MTX category. The MTX category is for bragging rights only.




Video showcases by FallMakesHideouts
► Video of all the entries. Video format will be same as the past competition
► You MUST include 'Video or screenshots for showcase' from the submission form (up to 3 screenshots or a 10s video) to be in this video.

A commentary/showcase by Brittleknee on Twitch
► Stream date TBD (usually at end of the submissions so all can participate) also will be announced on Brittleknee%27s Twitter
► All submitters who want to be on the stream can be. There will be a signup form before stream.
► Optional: jump into a discord call with Brittleknee during stream and talk about your hideout, the things you're proud of, how you expanded on the theme, etc. She could then take a tour of the hideout and you could point out different things.




Top 3 get a special role on Guggelhupf's Hideout Discord Server

(The Iron Hideout Competition happens regularly, but because we run on community offered prizes, prizes are subject to change each time this is hosted)





► Showoff your submission on Reddit at r/PathOfExile_Hideouts

Feel free to post your hideouts for promotion and feedback, however YOU MUST POST IN THIS FORUM THREAD TO SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY FOR VOTING!

Synopsis's Favour Farming Discord
Guggelhupf's Unofficial Hideout Discord
Darkspy's Hideoutshowcase Discord





1. The hideout must be created after the competition has started.

2. The hideout must be submitted via Hideoutshowcase or poe.house (It does the useful job of tallying up total favor cost and checking for any MTX decos)

3. You may submit to one or both categories.

4. Keep it PG13. This shouldn't need explaining.

5. Hideouts that are just copies of existing submitted hideouts will be disqualified, IE "Took a popular hideout, tweaked it a bit, resubmitted it"

6. Any form of plagiarism will result in an immediate disqualification and ban from any future Iron Hideout competitions

7. And finally, the most interesting rule of all and why we call it "Iron Hideout Competition"... The submitted hideout must follow a specified theme.





Post a link responding to this thread here with the following template:

► Category: (MTX/nonMTX)
► Submitter Name:
► Submission Name:
► Link to video or screenshots:
► Submission Link:
► How your hideout fits the theme:

► Do you want your entry to be shown on the showcase stream(s)? (Y/N)
► Video or screenshots for showcase: If you want to be in the showcase compilation link up to 3 screenshots or a 10s video or a 10s long timestamp here. You must include this section to be in this video.
► Social Media Link (Optional): ONE link to your content (Twitch, Youtube, Twitter, etc)

Feel free to go into as much detail as you want. Submissions not containing a .hideout file will not be accepted. We do recommend linking atleast 1 screenshot in your submission post.

It is very recommended you upload a youtube showcase vid because it's easier to understand the hideout.





Once the submission period is over, the community will have a few weeks to vote on their favourite hideouts that were submitted. There will be a new thread for this. Then, we will announce top voted hideouts.

Individuals voting are encouraged to please heavily weigh how much the submitted hideout sticks to and represents the competitions theme! This theme can take many forms, and we welcome artistic liberties and creative ideas to be taken on the thematic concept.

We strongly encourage voters to checkout the submitters videos of their hideouts, and to not base a vote on one screenshot. The forum does not let normal users embed videos.





When is the next competition?
Iron Hideout Competition #5 will be midleague 3.14.

Can I use challenge trophies, old benches from before the master update, rhoa dinners or other exclusive non MTX decorations? For the non MTX category?
No. Even though it is not actual MTX, it is a decoration you can't buy with favour even if you want, and is something all players have different amounts and sizes of.

I missed the submissions end by a couple hours, can I enter still?
Yes, as long as you post in the forum thread.

What category is Ritualist Hideout?
In this league it will be non-MTX category because all players can unlock it.
