    Paired Mapping Contest #3
    Heroes
    Contents
    Theme
    Welcome to the 3rd Paired Mapping Contest. Like the previous contest, you have to create a map in a team of 2 people. The theme for this contest is Heroes. You must create a map where the player controls one main hero, and no other units, so it can be any of these genres:
    • Hero Defense
    • Hero Arena
    • AOS
    If I missed any just tell me and I will add them. Basically though as long as the main unit the players control is a hero, and they don't control get to control any other units (except for summoned units, and units like that), then it should be fine, but please post before doing any other genre, to make sure it is ok.


    Rules
    • The map must be created in a team of 2 different people.
    • The map must be to do with heroes, where the player controls one hero and nothing else.
    • The map must of been started after the launch of the contest. The map can not of been started before the contest starts.
    • All the entries must be unprotected so that the triggers and scripts can be looked at.
    • Imports can be used, however you will not receive any marks for them, and all imports must be credited.
    • All multiplayer maps must be under 4mb, so they are playable on b.net. Having it under 2mb is recommended.
    • All models, skins, sounds or resources used in the map must be credited.
    Criteria
    This is the criteria that all of the submitted maps will be judged on:

    Criteria Description Marks
    Heroes How well made were the heroes? Did they have original abilities, or just normal wc3 ones? /15
    Gameplay Was the gameplay fun for whatever genre it was? Was it balanced? /10
    Terrain Did the terrain in the map look good? Was the overall terrain in the map good, or did it look bad? Was there good detail, or did everything look very blank? Was the terrain practical with the gameplay? /10
    Triggers Were the triggers used in the map good, or were they made badly. Were memory leaks fixed, or were they not? /10
    Originality & Creativity How original were the ideas and heroes used in the map? How creative are they? /10
    Quality Does the map look good? Has it been made well, or has it been made badly? /10
    The entries will be marked with 50% judging, 50% public poll. Once the deadline has been reached, all entries submitted into the contest will be marked, and a public poll opened. Please remember that the maps don't have to be completed, you can submit a map even if it is uncompleted.


    Deadline
    The deadline for the contest will be the 30th of April. All entries must be submitted before or on that date. All maps must be attached to a post in the thread for the final entry, stating who the 2 authors of the map are.

    Note: The Deadline has been extended another 12 days, so the new deadline is the 11th Of May.

    1st. 40 reputation points, and an award icon.

    As you may have noticed, it says the terrain of the minigames when this is obviously not the theme.

    Thanks for pointing that out, fixed it.

    Well I suppose you could, but if you look at the criteria, heroes take up 15 points in the judging, which is more then any of the other fields, and it would be extremely difficult to make a maze map with heroes good enough to score highly in that field. So if you really want to I suppose you would be able to, but you probably would not get a very good score.

    Ok so hang on, would a map like a Footman Frenzy type map be ok?
    You mainly pick & control a Hero, but you have a few troops to command.

    EDIT: I just noticed.

    "The map must be to do with heroes, where the player controls one hero and nothing else."

    Yea so basiclly you can do any time of map you want, as long as the only unit you can control is a hero (except for summoned units, which have to be summoned by the hero, and have to be timed for it to be allowed).

    The deadline may or may not increase, it depends on how many people have finished their maps by then. But if there haven't been more then 3 entries submitted, there will probably be an extension.

    Can we do a single-player map if we wanted to, as long as you still only controlled one hero?

    Also, can we use WEJNGPU? (World Editor Jass New Gen Pack Unlimited)?

    Sure, as long as you have only one hero, it should be fine.

    Yea, but make sure that you state in the credits that you used it.

    How many heroes should be in this map? A good hero is very time-consuming to create, so obviously it can't be too high a number, but only one or two heroes would clearly be too few...
