    Isn't the poll time too short? I mean even for the music contests, we have about a month or so if I'm not mistaken and playing maps isn't as fast as listening to a song before voting.

    I need confirmation on Path of Devotion as the map crashes when I try loading the game on 1.31.1.
    I was in Wirt's zone.

    EDIT: saving the game and loading it right at the start also crashes the game but before you can see Wirt's Leg spawning near the hero.

    LoL, restarting the map when deciding to go back, shows the Waiting for Host and Disconnect box.
    Heh, could not reproduce it after restarting 2 times in a row the same way.

    I can confirm saving and then loading the map causes a crash and I managed to find the issue. It's the new UI natives that crash the game when you load. If I disable the UI triggers the game won't crash when you load a saved game.

    Yes, unfortunately most things break when saving and loading in Warcraft 3 without heavy precautions.

    I believe it wasn't possible to play as Player 2 on my map so I just updated it and now it's working. I'll be very grateful if a mod can replace the old version from the .zip with the newer one, sorry for the mess.

    I'm a bit worry for my entry, and the "mini-map" concept. What is Mini-map? Can my map be considerated as one?

    To me, the 'mini-' thing implies the map is a casual game with clear objectives, easy-to-learn mechanics and relatively fast-paced gameplay. Subjectivity aside, the only real difference with the rest of the maps out there is that a map from a contest was made within a certain time limit following a certain theme.

    I'm still a bit amazed that I got my entry to be something playable at all with Califlorida Capture. I was going for "elegant simplicity."
    I'm not too sure if I got to the elegance. You'll have to test it and find out.

    Then, everyone should benefit from a certain fix which should've been done until the deadline. Any update after this will get the attention in Maps.
