    The Next Custom Game Night's at 6:00 pm UTC on Saturday, August 11th, 2018!

    So get your maps ready for The Night!

    info2.png

    Welcome to the Game Night's Map Contest! Have you heard of The Custom Game Night which is hosted by Selaya?
    Maybe you have heard it and you have attended the Game Night even.
    This contest is directly linked to it and wants you to create a map to play in The Custom Game Night.


    Requ2.png
    Your map needs to have atleast 14 playable slots There are more than 12 players who joins The Game Night therefore needing 14+ players game.
    Maximum 45 minutes. In the Game Night we prefer playing more maps therefore needing the map to be short one.
    Needs to be fun Why make a map where everyone will get bored?
    Needs to be intuitive to play. It should not take ages to learn it.
    It should contain the given theme/intented case Having a theme or a requirement spices up the Contest which we all don't deserve but we need.
    Finished. The game should be in the spreadsheet before atleast 1 hour to The Game Night.

    The map doesn't need to be high quality, just needs to be enjoyable!

    Theme3.png


    • Evolve: Choose a melee map and turn it to 14+ players non-melee map but do not change the terrain drastically!

    • It's Not The Size That Matters: Create a 32x288 map sized map!

    • Cleaning The Dust: Choose a map which is over 14 years old then make it at least 14 players and bug-free!
      Here is Cokemonkey11's Archive. Choose a map from there.

    • No theme for this week!



    StartandDue.png

    IV. Map Contest contest shall begin on 29.07.2018 and end at 5.00 PM UTC on 11.08.2018.

    Challenges are only if you challenge another user to do something. What you have described here are Contest.

    P.S: why all the text labels are inclined? Bug my eyes so hard.

    Yeah, you're right. I changed the text but couldn't change the title...

    Because the contest elevates the spirits and apparently the labels.

    TBH that would be fairly interesting, but for 1-2 weeks you are getting mostly (if not exclusively) mini-games.

    May be interested to do something.

    The last incarnation of the Game Night (WaterKnight's Funmap Evening) featured 24h flash challenges.
    So yes, the point is to create something of small to medium size that's good for 15-40 minutes of fun.

    I moved this to the Multiplayer, Clans, & Arrangements forum. It seemed more fitting there.

    The contest will be repeated according to the Game Night. The theme will be discussed after this week's contest.
    Normally this contest is planned for 14 days but because of posting this fresh this weeks contest is shorter than the usual.
    Maybe we can make an exception and make a 48-hour challenge but that will happen rarely.

    I wouldn't have a chance to play unfortunately but I highly recommend you to give a go at my Witcher Multiplayer Online Battle Arena map for your game night:

    The Witcher MOBA v.1.0.3

    The map is fully playable and tested by our little Polish W3 modding community set up for up to 20 players and takes roughly around 45 minutes to play max (depending on players cooperation), lots of events, items, custom models and textures! Feel free to give it a go ;).
    I would very much appreciate if you could even give me some feedback after the game night.

    I don't think I can make the game night but I look forward to more of this in the future.

    It seems the game night on the 30th has no theme yet, but I have a good suggestion. Interested?

    So, I have an archive containing over 400 wc3 maps, all made over 15 years ago

    The theme is: pick a map from these at random, fix any regressions so it works in 1.29, make it playable for 20+ players, and use your remaining time to add some secret sauce to make the game fun for the fun night

    that's it!

    1. What did you use when you created them? Wurst, GUI, Jass, vJass? Because if it's non-Gui most of the people will not understand because they use GUI as you can see from this poll.
    2. Even if it's GUI fixing is not that enjoyable.
    3. When they have fixed it and made it 20+ will the map become theirs, yours or both?

    > What did you use when you created them? Wurst, GUI, Jass, vJass? Because if it's non-Gui most of the people will not understand because they use GUI as you can see from this poll.

    They're not made by me. They're over 15 years old - they're likely to have no triggers or scripts at all.

    > Even if it's GUI fixing is not that enjoyable.

    There should be very few regressions. The fun part is adding some spice to the map.

    > When they have fixed it and made it 20+ will the map become theirs, yours or both?

    Who cares? wc3 maps aren't anyone's intellectual property. It's a *very short* (only ~30 hours remaining) contest, no?

    Well, we can't change the theme right now, people have already started making maps( you have, too ) ._.
    But it can be a theme I guess.
