    It isn't melee.

    Well the idea is to create an environment, not necessarily a "map". Just a landscape that is walkable as apposed to the usual "art terrain".

    I didn't plan on using any imports anyways, so this works out quite well for me.

    So it would appear that you're correct there. Bleh, then most of my little challenge really doesn't mean anything. AoS maps/etc with imported doodads really don't mean anything.

    Anyways, so as to avoid trying to usurp the contest from Gilles (and because it isn't just a contest to make a melee map) I should revoke my previous challenge. How about this -- I'll give people who place in the top 3 without using custom doodads (and of course only if there are more than 3 entries) some rep on the side. I can't double the contest reward, but I'll certainly make it worth the effort.

    That sound fair?

    Hm, what if we use one imported tree? The ones that are in WC3 already are so bad.... :[

    Tough luck! If you want to risk not doing as well because you didn't use that custom tree, then you might win the contest and get my extra bonus. However, maybe you won't even place in the top 3 without that tree? Decisions, decisions...

    I'm not worried about my ranking, that doesn't really matter. It's for personal satisfaction :p

    Not really, my question was about still getting the extra reward, and you answered that :p

    I don't think I'm going to use imports. I just won't use too many trees x]

    No you won't, silly.
    That is me just giving rep because it's something I can do. It doesn't require any additional rules or anything.
