    "Saying your map is bad is aggressive and flammable"

    there is something called speech freedom,

    they, and everybody are free to say that my map is bad or that my map is not that good for competitive melee play as long as they use proper words.

    they didnt used disrespectfully words or insults...

    so there was no aggresion or flamming from their part in any moment directed to me.

    "And even if you hate all of my maps."

    I dont hate your map, hate is a no-usefull feeling. also from 25 spots only 15 filled, so thanks for joining us,.
    I may say (respectfully) a map doesnt follow some melee basis, but not for that I will hate it.

    it may come that from these ideas exchange, I learned some things,

    my only wish now, is that a friendly enviroment will prevail in the thread.

    please dont refrain in giving feedback, I want to continue reading you if you are willing to continue writting.:)

    a general question

    there will be more melee mapping contest? will Hive maps and Hive comunity continue to exist?

    or after reforjed thats it, all will change forever as we know, new wc3 map files extentions for a totally new game? .

    Freedom but with limits? Is that freedom?
    It all depends on the community what maps you'll make? No new extension since melee will have no custom imports for ladder, assuming the transition process from original to Reforged is seamless.

    My idea is that maps will be compatible when contain no custom imports. Compatible for both games and editors since players with W3Reforge can play with players using W3TFT as was announced. Patch will solve this compatibility on W3TFT side.
    BTW I think interesting could be huge 24 players map contest next time. :)

    @FranzVader_CZ While the community surelly needs 12+ players maps, I'm not sure if many mappers can pull it off. Last 24p map contest had like, 4 or 5 entries, just because it is pain in the ass the make a bigger map than 4v4. (Even 4v4 maps can be hard to finish.)

    You are right it is kind a chalange and after experience with deadline for this contest, it needs at least half a year :D But this also means there are not many 24p maps in a reasonable quality. In the same time it offers new game experience playing huge FFA, 2v2v2v2v2v2v2v2v2v2v2v2 etc. Sure contest can be more general like make a large map for 12-24 players.

    Speech freedom yes. You can say all the hate you have.
    I'm not stopping feedback or critique. I'm just pointing
    that you can say everything on your mind, but also make
    it helpful or word it a way that isn't disrespectful.

    Calling someone's map bad and giving no arguments on why, how
    isn't gonna make a modder wanna upgrade it. Its just provoking
    a counter argument with poor quality as well.


    Awesome, that's all I wanted. More objectivity along your subjective thoughts.
    And I think others will benefit from your objectivity.

    I voted for Venture Co. Shipyards cuz I'm an element of chaos. Also I don't wanna give my competetition better chances to win. Also the map just made me laugh and it's too funny and also I think polls are dum and I'm a rebel n wanna be a little rebelious. As I said, I'm an element of chaos. Go Venture Co. Shipyards!

    as rational being, I voted five maps using rational logic, but now in terms of chaos and feelings I want The Consortium to win all this (also map has nice balance + marketplaces).

    There's a lot of people reviewing these maps and there's a lot of effort put into these reviews. For example @Cigaro wrote a very good one about my map here: Lordaeron Plaza about ten hours ago and I could only answer now - sorry about that!

    But I really want to say thanks to all these people!


    Nevertheless there is another thing I want to mention, or rather a thing Cigaro mentioned in the review:
    Some of the creeps on my map that should have mana, don't start with mana. I don't know why. I didn't do that. I also noticed that the fountains north and south of the plaza were changed to the Icecrown Glacier skin while I created them with the Cityscape skin (you can see that in the video I made). Perhaps there are more changes that I haven't discovered yet. Did any of you find any similar changes on your maps too?

    I noticed the "no starting man" issue on a different map. According to rumours, this seems to be a general bug introduced in one of the recent bug. I dont know why it triggers on some maps, but not on others. I dont think it is your or your maps fault.

    About the mana, have you tried setting it to full to each unit, individually? It doesn't work if you select more at a time for some reason.

    I didn't do anything about the mana and since the deadline is over I won't change anything on the map until this contest is over.

    Judges only review the maps in the archive. You can safely update yours if you want to.

    Guys, what patch version are you playing the map on? Also, what map option related to melee status have you chosen, default melee, latest melee patch?

    default melee, I have 1.26 and 1.29, so I can play old maps with the 1.26, and just because I was lazy, I used the 1.26 instead the 1.29
