    I'm not sure if I'm following what you are saying. If you are wondering, what theme should be your map, it can be anything, since we have dropped that idea long ago.

    Is okay, never mind it, I couldn´t find the hhmm meaning. Good to see that you are interested in the contest.

    The reasons because we dropped that idea is to:

    1- Not everybody wants to do wow areas:

    a-Elwyn Forest or Hellfire peninsula, nothing new really.
    b- Another areas may be boring as hell like Tanaris desert or Desolace wich the terrain is very monotone and empty.
    c-There are many cool wow areas like Zangar Marsh or Grim Batol but they have already been done.
    d- Anothers wow areas will need alpha tiles for shure to represent them ( not everybody want to use that, I don´t fearing crashes).

    2-to avoid similar maps: I mean 10 guys doing I don´t now Northrend will mean like 7 using ICC tileset and 2 doing Lordaeron winter and one doing an undeground tile set. All blue and white maps and one green with a bit of snow.

    3- To have freedom and that everybody do the lore he wants. Lord of the rings, Game of Thrones, Dark souls, The legend of Zelda, what ever.
    It would be cool to see new sagas made in wc3 editor than the wow areas.

    4- The last melee contest was theme free, and is like the second melee contest is following the same rules as the first one (with the voting score reduced from 25% to 20%) but the rest is just the same.

    5- Mapping can be fun if you are inspired with the idea you are doing. Or can be boring as hell if you have to do a theme that you don´t feel much inspired. The idea of freedom is that everybody can have fun in doing what he wants to.

    Excellent Explanation! sadly.. for now i'm without a PC to work...but since it has touched other fantastic universes, why do not we argue about a theme of Mordor or Isengard? these themes are lacking on Hive

    I don´t sugest Mordor.

    Mordor v 1.03

    1) We are few and not everybody knows all themes, and not everybody wants to do an specific lore, is good to have freedom. It takes time to know a lore (youtube videos), get inspired and then plasm it in a map.
    And sadly some users said that don´t have that much time to map, plus to know a new lore, I want freedom so people can do what it wishes fast and not waste time thinking how can I do a Lord of the ring area.

    2) My case I liked Pillars of eterninty or Dark souls saga, I didn´t get inspired to do a map with those lores.... yet.

    3)This is not a terraining contest (where a theme is needed), is a melee contest. The main focus is balance, you can decorate it as you wish but it will be a huge mistake to sacriface balance because you plasm the region as its (like put few wood or to much water and you won´t have AOW creep rutes).
    You can get 0/50 points in balance because you were focusing in represent an area with a lot of fidelity and that is not the idea. The idea is balance, and decor it as you wish (of course alpha tiles and imported doodads will give uniqueness points).

    A guy want to do an outland map, let him be. There are 18 tile-sets in the wc3 editor, it would be ideal to no repeat a tile-set... much (we don´t want like 10 ICC tilesets maps, that will be checked with the wips, to avoid very similar maps)

    the idea of free theme is to avoid repetitions.


    Also it will be good a free theme so we don´t download the same models (an user may use arab houses or quillboar in barrens tiles, or draenei houses in outland.

    You can do the theme you like, again freedom is part of the fun.

    Is good to talk this things, but I think the focus of this contest is balance and then see how you want decor it to be beautyfull for the audience.

    It was free-theme in the first melee contest, I think that freedom should be mantained, specially for the future, a contest of more users will mean that it will take more effort to do something original and don´t get similar maps.

    Yes, I'd love a new contest and would participate. Hopefully a small melee map (2-4 start locations) and no silly themes.

    Yours

    Awesome, can't wait :]
    A shame that there is no theme, I prefer it when there is some kind of limitation to spark my creativity. Too much freedom can be overwhelming, but we'll see what I come up with.

  16. Is this still ongoing?

    I don't know what the theme is and I haven't worked in WE in a while but I wanna make a map for you guys.

    Can the melee map have special other stuff added in?
    Does it have to be strictly melee?
