    Dear All,
    I made it by the deadline.
    I was very much surprised to see Hive Workshop still online, much less to have a mapping contest within a month of joining. May the best map win ;)

    Please @moyackx , upload your map to the Map Section of the site and post a link here. Just like how this guy did:

    Yes that's how =P




    P.S.: The entry list will be updated later, I can't do it right now.

    I get your point on this and I also agree. I wouldn´t wrap it in as harsh words but most of the maps can be filtered out from the beginning because the creators probably never played ladder before nor do they watch streams.
    There are many obvious mistakes that make many maps unplayable so the argument of "every map should have a fair amount of testing" is not really valid when some of the basic needs of a laddermap are not fulfilled.
    It would be very hard and time consuming to judge when one had to review every map and give it an individual score, but if you just have to evaluate the best 3 and write a detailed review about these 3 then I wouldnt say it should be too much work to even judge a bigger amount of maps.

    At the same time it is a service by the admins/judges to even host this contest so they can also decide on how much work they want to take on their shoulders (i guess no one gets paid so its basically free time)


    Cheers


    @Naze
    Could you please confirm that the minimapcolorchange for trees and these things are "legal"?
    Otherwise it would have to be changed back before the deadline i guess

    Yes they're, no problem with that.

    Entries list updated.



    @Nudl9

    Hey there! Long time no see.

    I'm well aware it won't please everyone and people can rightfully argue it is flawed. If we did otherwise, "post an entry and you're in (as long as there aren't 30 entries already)", people that posted a WIP and couldn't post a final entry in time (because they took a lot of time to polish and publish their final entry) could rant that they lost their spot to some random guy that appeared and posted WIP & final entry earlier in the same post and that it was of inferior quality because it was rushed - and thus our system would be, again, flawed, "retarded", etc. We'll be making people unhappy either way, we have to choose one. Perhaps we could've made "post a WIP and you'll get a spot in the list" to prevent people rushing their final entries, but once we get 30 WIPs we're gonna have to make a waitlist and it would end up being the same.

    We're not accepting more than 30 maps. Neither we're disconsidering entries based on "this map sucks" or "too narrow corridors". Sorry.

    Thanks, it won't let me link to it at the moment though. It's saying my post contains spam-like elements :S

    Edit: Nevermind, it just let me :)

    Well, I didn't start soon enough, and I'm at work for another ~4.5 hours, so if I *was* in, I'm out now.

    Good luck, contestants!

    Be patient man. Contesters can upload a map to participate to 21 only, and now judges have 30+ maps that must be reviewed.
