QuakeCon will play host to another PC case modding competition this year, in which gamers dedicated to building their own machines from scratch will get a chance to win prized for their handiwork, Bethesda announced today in a post on its official blog.
During QuakeCon 2013, PC case modding specialists Modders-Inc hosted the Computer Case Mod Contest, during which gamers participating in the Bring-Your-Own-Computer LAN party showed off their custom-built machines. Like last year's contest, mod-makers will be awarded in three categories: Case Mod Classics, or modes that have been build from an existing factory PC case; Scratch-Build Mod, mods built from the ground up; and id/Bethesda Themed Mods, which include any case mods stylized after the companies' games.
All QuakeCon attendees are eligible to enter. Prizes have yet to be determined, but will be announced on the Modders-Inc website in the near future. Last year's contest saw the giveaway of $12,700 in prizes across all three categories.
