    This includes, but is not limited to, sending PMs out to various users, getting other people to send those PMs, advertising this contest on other sites with the intention to gain more votes (whether it is explicitly stated or not), and so on. If you are suspected of cheating, the staff will notify you and interrogate you (hopefully) over PMs. <3​

    I've voted for Figueiredo00, but my second option was the "The Plagium" by Ahimtar... I think the people don't play attention at the begining because it seems boring, but at the end it's a great job.

    thanks a lot! :)
    .
    .
    .
    so i tested those maps, these are my reviews :):

    mckill2009 (Maze Raider)
    nice puzzle, quite logical and so on... but for some reason it felt a bit stereotypical... if i was a judge i would test it further, maybe it is fun, but i didnt have enough time and will to get through the start, sorry :( also, what is the mystery here?
    but anyway, it can be fun if someone likes this kind of games and seemed to work well ;)

    KayS (The Core of the Mirror)
    well, epic. it really seemed mysterious and those puzzles were well planed (although 2 times the same picture wasnt the best choice and those key things sometimes went "on" but sometimes just flashed...) but it had powerful athmosphere :) the cameras were very good, and animations were great :ogre_haosis: im probably gonna vote for this one...
    btw, unloCked ;)

    eubz (Great Dungeon Escape)
    eh, is it really your entry? i mean, the "puzzles" and so werent that bad, but those items and those creeps spawning... the whole map just felt really RANDOM to me :D (i like those, when i was younger i created a lot of maps like that [too bad i didnt know how to work with trigger editor, so they never worked as i intended to :D]) also maybe add more doodads so its nicer... a few times i got stuck in the creeps which couldnt kill me and i was just waiting for them to die, also the archmage and the quest was weird... but for some reason, i liked it and played through it till the end :D conclusion- quite nice map, but there are much better ones in this contest ;)

    DeathChef (Forest Assasins)
    ok i didnt try it with nobody, but looked at the concept and so on and it seems nice :D i highly appreciate the idea, as its the only one really multiplayer map in the contest and i loved the music choicement :D so, its quite cool, but there are better maps... anyway its not a waste of time, maybe someday i will return to it with somebody to play with :D

    Ahimtar (The Plagium)
    OMG THA BEST THING EVAR MADE!!!!!!!!!!!!! :goblin_jawdrop: :goblin_jawdrop: :goblin_jawdrop:

    -Kobas- (Hunted)
    WOW, is this still w3? looks like a whole new game (great idea with the interface)... the whole moving thing and rooms and inventory was solved genially :) to say something negative, the conversation with the golem was a bit too fast... and, wtf, the spider on the bed freaked me out and did nothing? anyway i dont know, i didnt get past that :D
    btw, floWer ;)

    Figueiredo00 (Catacomb of Elend)
    great athmosphere and terrain, skippable cinematic, also a good light source idea, but it felt annoying when i didnt see anything in the "5 switch" room and i mistakenly moved through the square and had to do it again (also its weird when someone stands on the square but has to leave it and get back)... and i found a kind of bug at those traps- when i saw the door opening, i clicked behind them - niedron run there while camera changed and he suddenly died, wtf :D i had to go all the way from start... next time i saved it, but (the brazier puzzle was great ;)) then i got stuck at those wraiths, and once when i tried it i somehow turned niedron to be owned by computer (i couldnt do anything)... those walls were weird, sometimes i could see through or some units attacked me through them, but that wasnt so bad. i ended at the mavus part, because when i use my summon spell as mavus, i instantly lose :D:D:D
    guess it maybe could be the best map out there, but it definitely needs more work (and more time though, which i know you hadnt)
    btw its two more, not more two ;)

    Ahimtar, if you aren't done yet then don't post it.
    There's still a while to go, take your time with your reviewing.

    it's incredible your ability to find bugs on maps :D

    really, i tested the map many times, and i can't belive how you found so many.

    anyway, the bug that sometimes happened is the archers shooting through the walls. there is one spot with malus that this might happen. but its something rare.

    you lose control of your unit is weird too, i don't have a trigger to do that just by entering into a region. anyway, thank you for the review and the grammar correction :D

    I think that the judges vote are quite impotent, since its a close run

    This seems to be the mistke that I always make when I enter a mapping contest is that I make it multiplayer which means that alot of poeple can't test it which brings down my votes and also makes it a bit more harder for the judges:D.
    Also if you did play it with multiplayer you would notice that I like detail making it 100% bug free:D and I also had plenty of time because during most of the contest time was public holidays.
    I may test the maps some time soon and vote for someone:)....
