    Just a thread to find out which type of competition should we get rolling soon.

    Explanations of genres:
    Horror - Scary maps that will put you on needles. This includes, but not limited to, Survivals, Puzzles, Escapes and a regular map with dark theme and scary moments. Contestants are expected to get a map with the highest scariest rating as possible.

    Double Theme - An amalgam of two themes of your choice, whether it would be a Survival and TD, AoS and Puzzle, or anything that can come up to your mind. Contestants are expected to get a map with the smoothest transition between those two genres.

    Escape - A typical map, often seen nowadays, in which you will need to run from something, or to something. Contestants are expected to get a map with the funniest, challenging, and most innovative features.

    Strategy - Turn your favorite board game to a Warcraft III map, and add something unique about it! You can get a real-time chess battle, a dazzling Risk game, or anything that bothers you. Contestants are expected to get a map with the most innovative transformation of a board game.

    Mystery - Something that will freak you out. Solving murders, tracing the thieves, or working undercover can be tempting. Contestants are expected to get a map with the most crazy and freaking game play.

    The only problem with mystery is that it was used for Mini-Game Mapping Contest #4. Strategy and horror seem interesting, but it's more fun to make people jump out of their skin in terror:mwahaha:

    We will let few chosen people decide, or draw the straws. Or, we can host one, and the others afterwards. I am not sure, thought, I think Kael will find a better answer for this.

    That can do the job, too, if we don't have the winning entry. I will wait until the poll closes before I open a thread.
