    Official Melee Map Contest

    Congratulations to Pyrodactyl for winning the contest! Congratulations to the two runner ups, Draqz in second and Reborn91 in third!

    Welcome to Wc3Sear.ch's Official Melee Map Contest!
    This contest is the perfect opportunity for you to show off your terraining and your strategic mapmaking skills.

    Rules*:

    2. Blizzard style only - follow the generic melee map style. Normal starting locations etc.
    3. Only regular World Editor maps. Maps made with WEU, WE No-Limits etc. will not be accepted.
    4. Solo maps only - no groups of people working on a map together.
    5. The map can be as many players as you want.
    6. Submit your map via the Maps section's melee map category. Send a link to your map via PM to me, and I will add it to the list of contestants below.
    7. Maps made before the contest was declared will not be allowed. They will be disqualified.
    8. The map you submit must be the finakl version. Once submitted you will not be allowed to update it.

    ~You will be marked for the layout of the map, which includes placing of bases, neutral units, and usage of terrain to create the map strategic. The more strategic the better.
    Total .................... /100
    *The rules and marking scheme are not finalized. They may be modified at any time in the contest's course.

    Current judges will be VGsatomi and ElfWarfare (judges may be updated in the future).

    Im in. @ Dark Destroyer read the final line.
    but whats the file size limit? is there one? though I don't think a mere terrain and gold mine map will take much memory.

    sign me up :)

    When I said follow the Blizzard style, I also mean that the map should have a normal size for a melee map, nothing extremely large.

    Size limit? Heh, a max-size melee map with max doodads, creeps, neutral buildings and items on the map is still only 800kb tops.

    @Icemage: That map was posted before the contest announcement.

    Is WEU allowed so we can get around the maximum number of doodads?

    No, I want pure Blizzard ideas. That's beside the fact that the map has to be very classic melee-like, and if you put that many doodads then you're going to have a problem.

    well

    this i must say i am rather disappointed in, it completly singles out terraining, no positions for triggerers or modders, i was actually looking forward to this contest, guess i was wrong. I have no idea why it took you soo long to make, but really, why not a contest that allows for all skills and ppl, e.g. a race contest where u make ur own race... or a sorta contest where u make a map, but terring is graded, but this?

    Oh i really like terraining, so i'm in for sure! I think i'll make a 4 player map. My favourite things in making maps is to make it detailed, but i think i'll have to discipline myself not to make it overdecorated...
