    Darn it. Wanted to create a mini skeleton archer arena when I saw mini-map contest, oh well. This seem fun too (out of my comfort zone :p).

    There's an unused model of burning skeleton archer and an unused fire arrow missile. You can still do it. =)

    You can, per example, create a map similar to the Pudge map (I can't remember the name of the map, hope you understand), with heroes and only one ability.

    Not exactly sure if this is the right way to enter the contest as I've never participated in a hive competition before, but here goes. My entry is based off of the Largest Panda Ever hidden unit in the fifth Night Elf mission of Reign of Chaos. The Map will be themed as an escape mission by running away from the Largest Panda Ever. Players will be able to find areas in the underground caves where ancients can be built to either slow the panda, train units, generate resources and more while constantly having to keep moving forward to reach the cave exit before the Largest Panda finds and squishes them.

    Yes, that's the way.
    I must ask you for permission.
    I was planning to ad the Largest Panda Ever as a mission for my map, so, ¿Van I use it too?
    I hope you don't think that I am copying your idea, being my map can work without this

    Posting to commit, there is nothing easter-eggy about the terrain but it'll be done through gameplay.
    I am still making out the details but the ghost easter egg in the first human mission will play a major part.

    Well, I changed my mind again (last time, I swear). My entry will be a coop defense map inside a 'Pandaren drinking area' and hopefully I'll be able to implement the old ideas I had for the fishing boat map. A WIP is coming soon.

    I'm a huge fan of Abelhawk's series of videos!
    I'll try and whip something together, but unfortunately I've taken summer classes till the end of the month. I hope I can get something presentable by the end of the contest.
    I'm thinking calling it Orgrimmar 64 and having a Mario 64-style game play where you talk to random heroes like Drek'thar and Thrall and get transported to special zones where you collect coins by exploring the area and finding secrets. I juts hope I have time to realize this project!

    I´ve seen most of people do something extremely... Different.
    So, is my map a "mini-map", I am a bit worried about that, being my map can be considerated as an RPG, but extremely simple, without any advanced mechanic.

    I have a plan to create a map that was likely an RPG map and a Vampirism type. I'm going to post soon my WIP.

    EDIT:
    Here's my first WIP, Castle Area

    Sorry for ask again, but I think, being heinvers don't answered, i must do.
    ¿Can my idea be considerated as a "mini-map"?

    Marjosh, can I ask you for your secret in this map? I don't really remember nothing

    Sorry if my English sucks

    The secrets on my map was related to all campaign story of each race and secrets. You will know it if you finish and understand the campaign.

    I finished all Warcraft 3 several times, just i don't found any relation between the Easter Eggs and the information you writted before.
    That means you will try to use EVERY secret and story in the WC3?
    Sorry, I still do not understand what you pretend to do, maybe because I'm not familiar with Vampirism maps, since I never play one.
    If you really want to reflect all the campaigns story in only one map, it will be extremely hard.
    There are 7 campaigns for a reason, but if you are sure, let's go.
