    It remembers me some area of Outland, like Blade Edge Mountains, very nice !!!

    !!! great newform
    Interesting!!

    Now thats something I never saw!!!

    We have 3 Barrens?

    1) One has the outland void.
    2) Has a pond only in the middle and a mix with a sunken ruins tile
    3) It has water everywhere. And it seems its gonna have bridges.

    The 3 maps are very differents in layout, but it would be cool that from now on other tile-sets appear. I am waiting the Ashenvale, Sunken Ruins, Lordaeron summer tilesets.

    I think this part were everybody shows their WIPS is fun, I mean I see designs I never think.

    WIP 3

    new areas

    Overall Progress:

    1) Creeps defined, with their loot.
    2) Player 2 area defined.
    3) Some new areas here and there.

    The map can be played now (all creeps are in position). I still need to do beta tests.
    I am working the enviroment.

    Pastebin with the map.

    Well, Count me in. Currently I got lots of stuff to do irl (Collage, driver's license, test, ect ect), so I might be slow in the process. But yeah, Count me in the contest and best wishes and luck to everyone!

    Few questions:
    1. I know teamwork isn't allowed, but can I have someone write the description or the background of the map (This is for the hive part)?
    2. Does it have to be strictly 2 players? Or can I make it a 3 or 4 player map?
    3. Probably the most dumbest question I usually ask, (And mainly because i'm a bit lazy) but, can I have the link to the BB-codes?

    Thanks in advance and best wishes to all!

    Next time, you just need to add a "/help" phrase to the Hive home address, and you'll have a list of all things you need including BB Codes.

    Nice, nearly 20 people!

    Why would melee map need an excelent story/backround, if you have trouble with BB codes, send me PM, but teamwork should be striclly prohibited. If we allow you this, somebody else would want to have a little help over there and so on . . .
    You can have an 8 player map if you wish, but it has to be balanced for 1v1 gameplay. (4 player Turle Rock for example, which can be played in 1v1 scenario)

    I think that there are 6 player maps as far as 1v1 goes. So i guess that's okay too. : )

    I almost forgot, but thanks to @Ragnaros17 reminding me, I'll post this on reddit now. I guess there were many people joining just for the money during the last contest, so I'd be surprised if suddenly 20+ show up now. But as everyone seems to be happy, getting a few would nice.

    Looks great!, glad to see a pure Northrend tileset and that I am not the only one using some ice.

    Glad to help a bit.

    WIP 4

    Overall:

    1) I changed the mercenary camps positions. I played the map and noticed that the swamps were un-atractive areas to visit, so now they are.
    2) Both markets are in south and west positions respect to the tavern to counter the market place and the goblin labs of the other side of the map.
    3) Added a couple of orange to have better conection and better AOW rute. (Blue circle)
    4) Deleted way-gates, that didnĀ“t work with the creeps.
    5) More enviroment here and there, and I am glad I could make that lava work.

    If you want you map to be considered for BNET it must have "Melee Map: Yes" in the lower right corner of the World Editor, and be free of imported files.

    Good luck everyone!

    @Twilight looking good! Although I'd recommend using a different creep type than Ghosts/Wraiths, which are quite annoying to fight thanks to the Possession spell.

    @Ragnaros17 Well done! I like how the lava turned out.

    @Kam There is one issue with this as far as the contest rules go: As turning Map Options -> Game Data set to "Melee-Latest Patch" makes the map no longer a melee map according to the World Editor. Would it be a good idea to post both the standard version and a "BNET Version" with this setting turned off?

    No. You have to let it to default (melee) as long as you don't have any custom units/doodads/imports etc.

    Ah, Okay got it. I don't really make Northrend maps, this is the first time I am doing a map with this style. Usually I just do ether Ashenvale, Barrens or Sunken Ruins. Thanks again for the heads up though!

    Here are some wips. Map is almost done.
