    Gameplay The fun factor: Does the whole package create an enjoyable experience for the player? e.g. Are the spell effects satisfying, is there replayability, is the plot compelling, ...? /20
    Aesthetics Is it good looking terrain-wise? How polished are the details such as preview pictures, title, in-game texts and icons? /30
    Triggers Does the map run well performance-wise? Factors which influence this category are: efficiency of the triggers/coding, memory leaks, etc. /10
    /60


    Results Calculation

    In light of difficulties some have run into, I'd like to address anyone who still wishes to edit their submission:

    You will be allowed to update your entry past this point, but you must inform us if you intend to, so the judges won't have to play your outdated one. There will be a cumulative penalty building up until your final map upload - starting at 1%, and adding 1% for each day, on top of the current penalty. That'll be 1% on the first day, 3% on the second, 6% on the third, 10% on the fourth, and so on. This will affect your final score.

    The poll will not be paused, so you'll have to be quick. If someone plays your outdated entry and votes for someone else, there is nothing I can do.

    Only @Imago_ 's map is playable in 1.26a, so I voted that without playing other contestants' maps.
    I'll support @Imago_ because he just maked something for everyone.

    Note: I made a small update that fixed a couple of leftover debugging things I had forgotten to take out at the last minute. I know there are probably lots more errors, but I'll leave it for now since I won't have time to fix them until next week.

    I'm on 1.31 and I can only play 3 of the 6 entries. Feels bad man.

    You know the game files for as high as 1.31 is available for download on this site, right?

    I've jumped between versions 1.31 & 1.32 a few times, just takes time.
    I am unaware of how much of a pain going back further though... (so far a large portion of your soul just to look at reforged main menu.)


    Additionally some of these maps are absolutely breathtaking and well polished and you'd be missing out if you aren't taking at least a single play through, if not that then for the blood, sweat, and tears these talented users have spent.

    @matin45
    That's all well and good, but that logic promptly vanishes in a puff of smoke when you haven't touched the other entries.
    If you can't at least try all the dishes, you should have the common decency withhold your vote, but do as you will, don't mind my squabbling.

    I asume you judges will discount your vote in the final scoring.


    Good luck everyone!

    I'm matin friend, not martin :peasant-wink:, Also, I told, I didn't vote for best entry, I just did because someone thought about poor people that can't have reforged or latest classic patch.

    Then you should have showed your appreciation in the map thread, not by voting in a contest where you haven't played any of the submissions.

    You won't hurt my feelings that easy, kiddo, I'm always happy ;)

    I'm just stating my opinion from a logical point of view though.

    happened once in a contest before, poll was restarted.

    @Mythic

    a judge voted, whats the plan?, sugestion: a poll restart now may make life more simple later. That was done in the third melee mapping contest. (it means a lost of 5, now, votes and you can always vm those users to vote again).


    in terms of math (you have to re-math the thing in an excel) is not that easy to discount a vote, is only done when is clearly an illegal vote (IP sharing accounts).

    a vote is legal even if the user did not played any map and only voted because of screens.

    I never said the vote is not legal, I only said that his vote is illogical. And he didn't vote because of screens, he voted because it was the only map he can play, which is a totally unreasonable ground to base a contest vote on.

    I haven't asked him to withdraw his vote, or vote anything else, I simply stated my feelings on the matter.
