To enter any contest hosted at BattleSpot, email your rover, along with your name and the contest to enter, to sord {AT} battlespot {DOT} com. You can also use the online rover submission form.

It works best if you put your rover into a zip file of the same name as the rover (for example a rover called 'Abc_Xyz' would have the 'Abc_Xyz.vmf' file stored in a 'Abc_Xyz.zip' file. It's even better if you also include the .ice and .wst files.) However, if you are not able to zip your rover, just send whatever you can.

It has been taking me a very long time to get contests run. My hard drive crashed in 2005, and as of October 2006, only Total War and Arena Combat have been rebuilt and rerun. However, please do send in rovers when you get the chance so I'll have them we I finally do get to updating each contest. The number of rovers waiting does have an effect on which contests I update. Also, feel free to bug me via email if you want to see updates happen faster.
