I liked that one too, appleide. It has character.

In the current logo, the only interesting part about it is the shield in the background. The letters are bland and forgettable - they don't draw the eye at all.

It's GOOD.
Professional quality logo.

Just the shield could make for the application icon and could be made into the favicon of the website.

I find it better than the current and old one because it scales well, is very readable and the color scheme is simpler and efficient.

I'd be interested to see the logo at the top of the webpage (or something similar) on top of the shield. What's on the shield now is nice and all, but it doesn't look particularly warlike.

Once again, unless I missed it somewhere: Could we get a copy of the shield with no lettering so anyone that wants to might have a go?

Do you really think a poll would be the decission for the game? At the end we (the devs) have the final decission and the old logo does not look nice in front of the map at all. The colors of the old background looked nice, but the image did not (at least this is my opinion). A real high-quality version of the old image would be what I really would like. But since we do not have this or a by far better image for the background we do have the map in there. Maybe the map that is currently in work could replace it but I am not this sure about it at the moment.
What's so good about a map? It's boring. All it depicts is the campaign you are about to play (but ti doesn't even tell you that...). The map is emotionless.... lacks suspense, and most importantly, does not draw the eye.

Devs has the final decision... yes of course, but if they don't take into consideration about other people's opinions, then the game would go downhill from here... (don't worry, I still have trust in the devs...)

If you are going to replace the old purple image.... then Put something else OTHER THAN a map in... It needs to show emotion, suspense, excite ment, or stuff like that...

Yes... the shield does look professional... but professional = roughly same quality as any other game... The logo on the top of the webpage does not seem professional, but it is different. It has style other professional logos does not have... And most importantly, it shows that Wesnoth is a fantasy game, not just some TBS about barbarians vs romans... The logo also shows mysteriousness, and this captures attention.

That basically sums up my stance on the issue.

As for the logo, though the shield is final, we welcome any attempts at a new letterform.

The shield is final? Awww, I just got done with midterms and got back to work on mine. I finally brought it into the gimp for some detail work.

The rivets now need major fixing, IMO.

Well, unless yours suddenly gets *really* good. It has to start leaning a bit more in the photorealistic direction.

Yeah - the rivets need smashing, the wood needs woodizing, and the Wesnoth needs to look better. :P

Ooh, what would be really cool would be if you made the words "the battle for" actually emblazoned onto the shield. IMO, anyway...

I think he's saying that Xan's is better than the one Woodwizzle just posted (which it is, 'cos Woodwizzle's only just started the detail work on his).
