    Don't know about other contestants, but I myself don't need any extension.

    @Mr.Henci

    Hear the mappers are suffering their sorrow voices are echoing across the world. Their souls are bound to unfinished maps.

    Agree that sunday 13 is needed. Also it will be good to pm people and ask their state.

    edit: I wrote some pm to user who are not posting here much to ask how are they doing (many already stated here how are going), just to have a cheap list of map status.

    I will be honest, that one day in addition will be very essential for me since I had an immense delay around the holidays and I couldn't reach my PC. I am behind and I actually got these 2-3 days now to finish my work and do the tests. I can't really explain how important this is for me - it will be highly appreciated if we get an additional day or two.

    I will upload some more WIPs tomorrow. Cheers.

    Speaking as one of those who already posted their entries, I got nothing against an extension - be it a day or a week.

    I'm ok with extending the deadline for about one day. But it shouldnt drag on for much longer than that.
    Just incase: You can still edit your map, at least that's how it was at the previous contest. What should count is the version of the map you have uploaded at the time the contest ends.

    'm ok with extending the deadline for about one day. But it shouldnt drag on for much longer than that.

    I also agree with this for this reason: make a large extention is pointless if people is inactive.

    but is also true that proper extentions tend to be 1 week more.

    Is better to pm users and ask 1 by 1 how are they going, if they dont show signs of life, an extention is very very pointless.

    For the moment for what I talked the extention will benefit 4 active people, (many stated they dont need it) I hope to see response of more soon.

    the extention thing is far away to be confirmed, this is just pre-talk.


    Those who really really need extention, they should post wips and explain how much time they need and what is remaining to finish the map.

    I want everybody to finish their maps, but from now on, mapping times shouldn´t be that relaxed as it was in the begining. And if is not that decorated, well so be it, still balance is more important, neutral building positions and creep selection are much more important.

    I know that I can still edit but so far I haven't discovered any reason to do so unless I wanted to plant more flowers. But I added a lot of doodads as it is. Right now I'm more curious about the maps that will still flow in.

    good clasic otogon layout
    northrend trees, very clever, is interesting the multiple expanding options.

    interesting layout.
    I really like the temple/crypt with braziers and skull torches., also interesting the boat option.

    in terms of enviroment, call me impressed. You showed tricks that I wouldn´t imagined.

    I'm basically done too, I'll post it by the end of the contest :cgrin:
    If anyone would like to playtest, here's the map. Sadly I can't test it properly by myself as having more than 6 players makes my laptop lag a lot.

    Clever mix of Northrend tiles and Fellwood, first time I see that mix.

    Few green creeps, no orange creeps defending nothing, very competitive, players will kill each others at the very begining, thats great.
    I really like the general layout.

    Nice entries so far, how is everyone else going with the deadline? I'd like to see these all get finished so we have a nice contest. 1-2 days?
