    Good luck everyone!

    Ok, this is my entry guys, it was exceptionnaly late for me too.... but I have no excuse, i was just lazy ^^'

    Veilswamp

    I've made some changes since last time :
    - The creeps around the mercenary camps and goblin shops have been swapped to make the goblin shop's creeps sleep at night. The camps have been reworked so that the goblin shop is still easier than the mercenary camp.
    - The item drops have been reworked a little to avoid some very unfair drops. ( I completely removed the cristal ball for instance, and let the legion doom horn be a level 5 permanent instead of the level 4 registered on my version of the world editor :/ )
    - Taverns have been added.
    - A lot of work on the environnement has been done !
    - The pathing around the ramps and the islands have been upgraded to be logic and more playable.

    So many people dropping out!! :(

    I hope I get to finish mine.
    Would anyone else benefit from a 24-hour deadline extension?

    keep rushing, drink cofee, copy paste terrain, loot creeps, copy paste the doodads
    focus in balance rather than in enviroment.

    responsibly

    It would be more than just sad if we only had the ten current entries.

    I'm not against an extension of the deadline. But of course the judges have to be heard for that. But my guess would be that they won't oppose this - Lawliet for example has his final qualifying match in the South Korean qualifier for the World Cyber Games on Wednesday and would probably not have started before this anyway.

    "responsibly"
    of course,

    I have to say that I was surprised, I got many positive responses from some users (cant control all users at the same time), and just now a wave of droppings,

    "The contest shall begin on March 16th and conclude on April 23rd, 23:59 GMT"

    for the moment the contest is running with this time, until @mafe appears and explain us whats gonna be the next steps of the contest, thats why I tag mafe since he is the manager, he has to manage this ship.

    About the extention, me silent, is mafe decision, where captain rules, doesnt rule a sailor, I am a just sailor.

    I can only encourage the 7 users to focus in balance, terrain the map with simple tile paths, with 3k - 4k doodads, trees mostly, dont waste in enviroment that much, copy paste flowers, and present the map ASAP, I sugest a fast upload and then update improved if you have the time to.

    Did you only call yourself a sailor because of all those boat maps? ;)

    And about mafe... if mafe lives in Europe it might simply be sleeping time like it should be for me as well.

    XD, actually is a very very common proverb here, used and overused.

    Where rules a captain , doesnt rule a sailor.

    that is used in everything, with your job boss, with your father, with your wife...


    Yes I have that info, but I wanted that mafe make such statement himself.

    I dont mind a 24 hour extension, as I wont be able to start reviewing the maps before Thursday anyway.

    So the deadline is extended to April 24, 23:59 GMT, i.e. about 1 day and 17 hours from this post.
