    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]
    Balance Is the map balanced for a player vs player 1v1? Are the positions and distance between points of interest fair? Does the map allow the 4 races to be balanced? Consider balance when implementing the pathing, resources, creep camps, and item drops. 50/100
    Terrain Is the map visually pleasing in mediums of terrain, doodad placement, and overall theme? Is the map repetitive? Is the aesthetic well designed but not overly obstructive? 35/100
    Creativity & Uniqueness Does the map bring something new or creative to the table? 15/100
    Bugs Scores may be brought down if there are bug-like issues such as faulty pathing, unusable resources, etc -

    • 80% of the winner shall be determined by the contest's appointed judge(s).
    • 20% of the winner shall be determined by the results of a public poll.

    @Naze

    I would ask piety for foje tit action.

    edit: foje tit contacted Mr.Henci before I detected it, that should be taken in account as good behavior. I remember once I had internet problems while uploading a map, and it wasn´t uploaded, users had to tell me about that bug. Queen Sinestralis Fortress v 1.03

    Melee Mapping Contest #2 - Poll

    also is good that foje tit voted for others users aswell.

    I apologize, this is also my first time with this contest when I found out my mistake I tried commenting on Mr. Henci's profile. But it wasn't really intentional when I voted I realized that I had voted for two maps with the same first two letters "Ae" and also that one of my choice was not chosen.(It was the loading time for casting my vote quite have a slow internet ) And finally when I scroll I read the rules and that's it.
    I sincerely apologize for it because of my inpatient behaviors.

    Can we moderate the maps from now on @Naze or should we wait for the results? (map pending section is two pages by the way)

    EDIT: we also need an announcement for the poll.

    Voted for the following (in no particular order):

    Logging Camp - by Knecht
    Silverwind Clearing - by Mr.Henci
    Brightwater Oasis - by mafe
    Bloodmyst Quarry v1.1 - by Ascrelle
    Ruins of Azshara - by JaleVeliki

    It was quite tough choosing from so many great maps. There were a couple others which also deserved a vote, but I was limited to 5. Hope the other users will do them justice.
    It was a great contest, hope to have more of these in the future. Also good luck to all participants!

    You can not vote for yourself, you didn´t read the rules but voted right?

    sadly I have to spot that you only voted for yourself and not for others maps.

    @Naze

    a too obvius mistake, I would also ask piety for him.

    Why don't you put screenshots of every map in the topic instead of making us download, unzip and open the maps map by map?! It's exhausting.

    Well, there is list to all participants and their maps (wich have screens in them) + judging melee map by a screen isn't the best way to look at it. (You can only see asthetic, not the gameplay and balance of the map)

    You do you buddy. Do what you want. I'm just saying, that judging melee maps by pictures isn't the proper way. Simple look at it in the editor, or few minutes of gameplay should provide you with much better picture of what these maps are capable of and what are their strong and weaknesses. But as I said, if you want to rate it based on the pictures, feel free to do it. Nobody is stoping you.

    I think @Mr.Henci is right. Played all the maps and it was such a great Sunday. You can't really feel the atmosphere via pictures alone

    And yet, it would be great to provide a collection of screenshots for every map in this topic.

    ... and the links continue


    in these links that are posted in this thread, you can access to the description of every map, there you can see screens of every map. Put the screens here will crowd the thread. The number of screens submited per user is free. While some users upload like 4-5 others may upload like 20 or more, there is no limit in that and depends on the participant wish on how many screens show.

    that would require copy paste labour, also, in the map section, users can upload more screens if they wish to. But the maps that are going to be judged by the judge are in the zip folder.

    What's hard to understand that as @Mr.Henci implied, we do not vote images because it's not a terraining contest but you have to vote the maps which means at least loading them in the editor...
