    35%

    Will keep eye on it.

    EDIT: so custom import are not allowed, but what about custom object data, like doodads, for example?

    I got confused. Hoped the 555 euro was for the winning map.
    Sadness.

    Wait, I'm confused. Is the prize money for playing and winning the 1v1 tournament, or for getting your map selected for the tournament, or both?

    I had a quite fun idea for a 1v1 map for a while now. Now I have a reason to work in it :p I'm (most likely) in

    I guess I'll post a map too. Though I won't make anything new with the deadline being in 2 weeks and the contest coming out of nowhere.

    After doing 15 maps in a row, I got bored of it.

    But seing this is Black Rock and Roll!!

    Count me in!!

    edit:
    A couple of Sugestions:


    1) It would be ideal to have some sort of participants list in the frontpage to track participants, wips and final entry like this:

    upload_2019-9-25_0-47-58.png

    2) There is no apointed moderator/ staff. I understand that is necesary for all oficial contest in the site: most of times is the arena moderator, or another moderator or former moderator.

    3) I think is part of the protocol that the arena moderator post that the contest main page is oficially approved, I didnt saw his post here and in the other thread in the townhall updates and news .I Taggin @Heinvers current arena mod so he can see this and do the green banner.

    4) participant limit?

    The maps need to be labeled as melee maps in the editor. From my memory, any custom data will disallow that label.


    That is correct. The monetary prize is for the tournament.


    Thanks for the suggestions! As we're still early in the contest, there are no participants to report on. I will be adding them to the first post as I see them come in, and there is currently no participant limit.

    Why isnt there room for a small fee for the winners when there is a pricepool like this? I mean I get its a cool chance to get your stuff played but once money is involved the "work for exposure" thing becomes kinda strange. Dont want to provoke, just asking


    Other than that I really like the idea. I also think its better to let people nominate/finish maps since creating a new map isnt easy and this is a better way to actually get good and ladderrelevant maps. Im looking forward to seeing the entries and will finalize and hand in one by myself as well

    Disallowing participants from using such data seems unnecessarily restrictive. It would be trivial to check each map in the editor to ensure that custom data (not imports) has only been used for doodads and destructibles.

    True, but Blizzard probably wouldnt add these maps to the ladderpool or would need to heavily edit them. I would guess one of the intentions might be to find maps that actually could be implemented to the game
