    The Civ5 icon competition winner was ancestral!

    On behalf of the forum, I would like to say congratulations, and I would also like to say thank-you to all those that took the time to make entries for the competition.

    I have added the winning icon as the [Civ5] smily - [civ5]

    It's a well designed icon, but I really can't say I like using "CiV" for Civ 5.

    Agreed, but I can tolerate this logo. It might grow on me.

    I'm sure much went into it's creation, but to me it doesn't say "Civilization 5". It just says CiV.

    [civ5] was definitely one of the best looking icons to choose from.
    Congrats ancestral! A controversial election methodology but a deserving winner nonetheless. ;)
