    Ah, 10 days left! May the Drums in the Dungeon fill your ears and inspire you. The sound of the echoes motivate you. And the may the beat of the drum guide you. Good luck contestants!

    These are the bosses:

    http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/models-530/brutal-lord-204070/?prev=search=brutal&d=list&r=200

    And one model from the Russian site. Some kind of Bone Dragon.

    I'll almost completely focus on the boss fights, meaning terrain and all the extra stuff won't be such a high quality. The boss fight will be used in a way or another in The Chose Ones campaign. So, in other words I kill two birds with one stone. Oh, I just love that.

    I am bailing out also.

    Got Diablo 3 yesterday and school has been moved to start one week earlier, aka this monday.

    Lost motivation to work on the map with Diablo 3 anyway.

    I still haven't bailed out yet, although for the past week I've done near to no progress on my entry. Pity as for if I could of actually possibly had as much time as I usually spend on my entries it would be so much more complete. This meaning my map would be playable but mostly a beta. :\

    Note that I like aiming for quality over quantity as this map will be continued after the contest. I make maps even in contests for the joy more than to win really.

    Already in inferno, act 1, monk.
    Still loving it.

    I am a hardcore diablo 2 fan, spent hours on boss runs and loot hunt so i don't mind the fact it repeats itself.

    Edit:

    Can't wait for monster power so i can set the player dificult to full pt for more drops :D

    As I remember, your AI was already good enough once your heroes were possessed, which means they were very good at killing once they turned against you :D

    I think I'll be dropping out. My map just lost the "magic" to it for me, really.

    I will upload some more WIP by monday. Anyway, I was wondering if my map is big enough. There is a solid big starting room where you will spend a few minutes, mostly for tutorial; then, some halls and room, secret passages and stuff, which will take about 10-15 minutes. And then 5 more minutes of pure awesomeness produced by the boss-fight. Big enough?
