    I don't get what you mean by that DeadDog?
    Maybe someone is not as smart as they may appear? :p

    There were and still will be maps that focus on triggering etc. The hero making contest was a test for triggerers. There has to be a balance between different contests to give different people a chance to show off their specialties. Thats why we are focusing on one item at a time instead of everything at once.

    Whispering Waters clearly states that it is a beta, map in progress, which its final version has not been released. When the new version is released, you have little choice but to accept it for the contest.

    Can we have teams? IE 4 vs 4? And if so can those teams all be the same race? IE four orcs vs four humans, etc? Can we have teleporters, I ask because they use regions.

    can we use . . .

    waygates?

    creeps from different tilesets? (bandits in dungeon, skeletons in cityscape, etc.)

    campaign units as creeps? (stonemaul ogres, hydromancers, landmines, etc.)

    normal units as creeps? (necromancers, tauren, etc.)

    the wierd critters to make mechanical critters a little more worthwhile? (like frogs chickens, racoons and such.)

    Any variation of creeps is fine, altering tilesets is fine, because those are all things you can do and still have it be registered as a melee map. I say don't hold back with the doodads. they are important for making terrain look good. But I do suggest that you look into non-pathing doodads because they dont hinder unit movements or structure building, but are still there for decoration. (examples: cat tails, river rushes, lilly pads, ect). Waygates and waygate regions are fine too, because those don't strip the melee status off a map, either.

    Maps made and posted before the contest announcement will not be accepted. End of story.

    So far we have one contestant: KrackenX's (4)CityoftheDammed Lets see some more!

    No, only final versions allowed. Once you submit your map you can't make any changes to it.

    OK, then i'll work a bit more on the terrain & ballance, and then submit the final version. I don't want to submit it too early and then anger myself coz i could have done something better.

    Submit your map via the Maps section's melee map category. Send a link to your map via PM to me(oz02), and I will add it to the list of contestants below.

    As you can see.

    Writen by oz02, so send links to him, not me :p

    ok i will start working on mine soon... been very busy.

    people who complain about this not being custom enought are a little closed minded...

    this is to truely test your mapping skills, being restricted within the boundries of a melee only map will allow you to develop and show your true potential.
