    Guys, sorry to say but I must admit I can't meet even 1% of the requirements of this contest even though I really wanted an artwork of mine to be included in the Blizzard's release.
    Apparently I am too stupid to understand the rules and there are far wiser teenagers here that eventually can do better.

    good LUCK to all, since I guess that's what you need most of all.

    I see that some people are starting to worry about the final entries ;) ... so I posted mine :
    Scar of Northrend

    Compared to the last WIP, i just did some testing and played with the doodad placement a little.

    Ok, I admit, I was close to forgetting to post the final entry :D:oops:

    What exactly do you mean? If there's some kind of misunderstanding maybe we can help you so that you can finish your map anyway.

    If this recent discussion reminded you and maybe others as well to upload and post their entries it was fruitful. :)
    Your map certainly looks awesome!

    Well I am suprised that there are lots of map with Northrend theme

    maybe that extension to the end of Sunday is not a bad idea after all, it is just one more day but in fact it is two days of weekend instead of one :p,

    eeehhh??? what???, your layout was the classic octogon, an pretty much orthodox formula. Can you explain more or show us what you have, there still time.

    I screw it in an olympic way in the 2nd melee contest and here you have me, all can be fixed.

    great news!, thanks for put me in the credits, tile mix is awsome.

    more great news!

    Last contest, people went more with barrens. If you see my profile, in my case Underground is my favorite tile-set.

    I have faith that the cavalry of mappers will reach in time.

    By the way that map is a jewel looking!!

    Well it seems a pretty normal 8 players meelee map to me.

    Just for the certainty - every FFA map can serve as 4v4 map, so if it is the case it is no problem. My map is FFA also.


    I am biggest fan of Lordaeron summer, but there are too many maps of that kind and second most favourite is barrens and third is sunken ruins

    More Ice and Snow. Is it because this contest is in winter?

    never could get the trick on sunken ruins maps tile mix.

    hoho it really looks like a buttlefly!!

    Hiveworkshop borders are winter ones.

    that shure was luck.

    -maybe forest are very common.
    - barrens are to much barrens / desert, hard to fill. You cant put much plants is a desert.
    - sunken ruins, is cool but I never get well with the tile mix.
    - outland dungeon, black citadel maybe to red.
    -cities are flat,

    so yeah ice!!

    Don't list me out yet, please. I might actually do something. And no, it's not icy winds and cold.

    It is lava.

    The tileset is just a matter of taste ;)

    I was trying Northrend because i wanted to try a new mercenary camp that wasn't too imbalanced :confused:

    And i love outland and black citadel tileset, but there is like... 3 creeps that sleep at night maximum with a lot of overpowered creeps with inferno/charm/finger of death :eek:... so i think this tileset makes it hard for a balanced map...

    Moreover, I haven't seen a lot of ice in the actual map pool... there used to be a barrens and ashenvale map in the 1v1 pool... and a lot of sunken island map in the team map pool...but I don't remember a icecrown or northrend map in solo o_O

    Yes, there's not much ice in the map pool. But there's even less Outland or Felwood (namely 0). And I even like these tilesets. But I already got a nice idea for a cool (pun intended) map for the next mapping contest myself. But I don't know for what kind of map that will be. Maybe 2v2 or 3v3. So far there's also no official 12v12 map - maybe we could go for that one day.

    Wait a minute!
    We can't use creeps outside of the tileset category??
    I mean we can only use Northrend units for Northrend tileset!?

    There's nothing in the rules against this. But players expect certain kinds of creeps on certain kinds of maps. Meaning they would expect Bandits who are invisible at night in City maps, but not in Outland and they might expect purging Gnoll Wardens on Lordaeron maps, but not in the Barrens and so on...
    So while it is not forbidden I just guess that some people would see this as a flaw.
    I did use some non-tileset units myself but only critters like some frogs in some ponds where I thought that would fit.

    well I do like dungeons maps too because the tile set is mirrow of underground ones.

    You didn´t properly state/write "that you are formaly dropping the contest", just stating about "your map quality, rules, artwork, Blizzard realease, luck, and sorry."

    you are safe.

    I have the feeling that for this contest users tried (speak for myself) to use the tile-sets in a blizzlike , preset way but with full effort.
    Underground: pure underground.
    Barrens: pure barrens.
    ICC: pure icc
    Northrend: pure northredn.
    Fellwood: pure fellwood.

    you can use all the creeps you want.

    But there is something called creep fitting, for example I would not put water elementals in a dungeon lava tile set. instead some red units or rock golems.

    creep fitting adds to the enviroment

    gnolls or kobolds can be in a barren cave.

    to miss the creep fitting:

    it has to be more drastic.

    like frozen revenants or ice polar bears. on dungeon tileset with lava that would be weird.

    in my opinion the blue orge mages are perfect for ice enviroment and perfect to mix with ice trolls.
