IRON HIDEOUT COMPETITION 11 ✤ Theme: Inspired By




Welcome to the Iron Hideout competition 11, a Sanctum league hideout community event. Build a hideout based on a chosen theme and compete for prizes and admiration of your peers!

Looking forward to seeing some wonderful creations. Lots of fun and happy building!





The theme of this competition is INSPIRED BY meaning drawing inspiration from various existing works of art, books, games, movies or real historic events. Your submission does not need to be an exact copy or resemble the reference material in every detail, it only needs to be a clear enough reference so that the source material you drew inspiration from can be recognized. Imagination and innovation are very welcome!

SUBMISSIONS START | January 15th 20:00 CET
SUBMISSIONS END | February 12th 20:00 CET

After the submission period has concluded we will announce the date for the showcase stream and results.





Before creating a submission please carefully read the rules, there have been changes made since the last competition.


TWO SUBMISSION LIMIT | Contestants are allowed to submit a maximum of two hideouts and they should fit the theme of this competition as closely as possible.
NO PREVIOUSLY RELEASED HIDEOUTS ALLOWED | We will not be accepting any submissions of already released hideouts. Hideouts have to be designed for this competition.
NO MTX | No MTX bases or decorations are allowed (including stashes, challenge hideout bases and trophies or decorations unlocked with MTX bases which have a limited number of placed objects). Basically, all decorations placed must be unlimited use plus default stashes, map device, masters, lockers and benches.
HIDEOUT SHOWCASE | Hideouts need to be uploaded to Hideout Showcase with your Path of Exile forum nickname mentioned in Description (this is to confirm the hideout is your own work).
HIDEOUTS HAVE TO BE YOUR OWN WORK | They also must be safe to showcase (nothing breaking GGG Terms of Service).
PLACE ALL THE MASTERS BEFORE SUBMITTING | For the purpose of creating weekly showcase videos please make sure you've placed all the masters (feel free to hide them behind decorations) otherwise they might appear in random locations when importing.
USE THE POST TEMPLATE | When making your post please copy/paste and fill out the template (feel free to format it to your preference).

Submissions breaking any of these rules will be disqualified.


POST TEMPLATE
✦ HIDEOUT TITLE |
✦ SUBMITTER NAME |
✦ HOW DOES YOUR HIDEOUT FIT THE THEME? |
✦ HIDEOUT SHOWCASE LINK |
✦ VIDEO (Optional) |
✦ YOUR CONTENT LINK (Optional) |

You're welcome to add screenshots to your post (if you want to add many please hide some with a spoiler for ease of reading). You may also add a gif of your entry.

For this competition due to the theme you may also add any reference images (hidden by spoiler) if you wish to or deem it necessary - it is not required but may help us understand the reference better.





Prizes are in the form of digital pre-paid gift cards with specified amount which can be used to make purchases online including in the official Path of Exile store for purchase of supporter packs and points.


1st PLACE WINNER
✦ 30$ reward in form of a digital pre-paid gift card

Winners of the competition are decided through jury voting. The jury consists of renowned hideout builders who have been heavily featured by GGG and have won or ranked in the Official Hideout or Iron Hideout competitions.

The judges vote based on the general hideout impression, adherence to the chosen theme, clever or innovative building techniques and overall skill. They all cast their votes blindly, without knowing how others have voted. The votes are then tallied by the organizer and the winners announced.


We do not use poll voting because it is easily manipulated/cheated and even when that's not the case such a system would ensure the contestant with the largest community behind them wins, which would be unfair and impossible to sort through. We feel that a jury of skilled and respected peers is a much better option.





Each week the collection of submissions for that week will be recorded by importing hideout files and uploaded in a showcase video. Because of this you do not have to make your own videos unless you wish to do so. The weekly compilations will be linked here.

WEEK 1 ENTRIES | Entries Video
WEEK 2 ENTRIES | Entries Video
WEEK 3 ENTRIES | Feb 6th
WEEK 4 ENTRIES | Feb 13th

(If there are very few entries for any given week they might get merged into next week's compilation.)

All weekly videos including the winners video will be posted on r/pathofexile subreddit and shared on hideout discords.





Subtractem will be joining us again for this competition's showcase stream after a fantastic showcase he shared with us last time. Stream date will be set after the submissions have been concluded and before the results are known.

SHOWCASE STREAM TIME AND DATE | TBA

✦ HIDEOUT TITLE
Hotel Room

✦ SUBMITTER NAME
Snakestar1998 / SShadowEmperor

✦ HOW DOES YOUR HIDEOUT FIT THE THEME?
My hideout is inspired by a poem titled "Hôtel," which was written by Guillaume Apollinaire. The chason (song) that I adore using this poem uses the same name and is composed by Francis Poulenc.

✦ HIDEOUT TITLE |
Mycenean Temple

✦ SUBMITTER NAME |
TheAbolition / Nidaige

✦ HOW DOES YOUR HIDEOUT FIT THE THEME? |
The hideout is heavily inspired by the colorful temples seen in artist depictions of ancient Greece and Mycenae, as well as in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. The temples often have very colorful decorations, with one especially lavish room dedicated to the god or goddess of the temple, and this room is often filled with tribute in the form of food and treasures.
