I saw some of their other wins and they were okay, but there was absolutely no excuse for that avatar to be first, or to have gotten such a high score. The item use and color use are as basic as can be, and this seashit trend was already on my nerves to begin with. I mean if would be different it people actually got creative with these colors/schemes, but if you can throw something together in 5 minutes no, it isn't a good avatar. If anyone calls us salty, they're the ones in the wrong. We spend hours on ours, only to be beaten out by some s**t like that. It's infuriating.
This is why I don't do rate threads in places like the CB. People there have shitty avatars, so why waste my time? And if you rate them low, they get super pissy about it and say it's "just my opinion". Yeah, my opinion is you suck at design and are unoriginal and boring, just give up. I still don't know why the other regular raters even bother either. Likewise, if you come in with something nice to one of their shitty rate threads (once in a blue moon when someone decides to make one that doesn't usually), they give your avatar a low rating and some other basic s**t a 9/10. Are people really this stupid or am I just overly critical?
