    I don't really like the theme. Darkness, I just don't really think its really a good theme for a mapping contest.

    Can't the theme be singleplayer or something, most thing that are made in paired mapping are multiplayer so singleplayer would be cool for a change.

    Arena sounds good.

    The only problem with that is single-player maps can take a lot more time and work then multi-player maps, so a single-player map contest probably wouldn't be as successful as a contest where it could be multi or single player.

    Nope. The theme Hero was used a couple of contests back (I think it was the third). That contest had a couple of arena maps submitted, so thats probably what your thinking off.

    Single player is only as time consuming as you make it. But I suppose I understand what you mean. In this case, I must say Arena.

    Arena..?

    Why not just make the theme darkness, and let the contestants decide what type of map to make.

    Darkness sounds more than a texturing theme than a mapping theme to me, so I guess that's why most people doesn't approve of that theme. Anyways, arena is good be cause there are many possibilities etc. with that theme.

    Have a rest, dear encouraged Hivers.

    We just got a Speed Mapping Contest, i think we should wait a at least around a month before we host a Paired Mapping Contest.

    Agreed. Like Paladon we should wait one month or more until we host this contest so other contests get a chance.

    Hey guys, sorry i couldnt be on yesterday to talk sooner, iam changing the contest theme to arena. As for the competition to be started in a month time, i dont mind but can we keep it open so that people are aware of when this is starting a months time? And so they are prepared?

    All this does not mean that the contest will be hosted in exactly a month.
    And of course, we can talk about it ;)
