    well you said you showed 2/3 of your maps. What about the other 1/3? As long as there not completly finished.

    Well didn't I say that there had to be a considerable amount of work done on the map? Not just a few new units. Well I will only accept maps that are in the alpha stage. Yours would be counted as the beta stage.

    heres an idea. maybe you could have it like a normel AOS were you have to destroy the other teams main building, and then once a main building is destroyed you move to other battlefield. And so on. Also try and maybe make things like obstacles of traps you might find somewhere in each battlefield.

    yeah.. sounds cool! And you will have the same level and character in next level, and maybe something about some characters have powers in some maps etc..

    but back to contest..

    That does sound pretty cool, I once worked for like 3 weeks on a maze map I was making so I know of some pretty cool traps if you need any.

    Well, I got a third map which I have showed none yet, but I don't think it'll do very well as it is in the early beta state and just playable.

    About the other two maps, one of them has been hosted like 5 times on B-Net and the other has been showed to the folks on WC3Campaigns and that's it...

    I can remove the thread on WC3 Campaigns if that's neccesary, but that would be quite annoying since I proberly wouldn't be able to get a new one there then.

    when you mean "showed" does that mean people have played it? Or you have just shown screenshots or sumthing like that.

    That means that people were able to read some stuff about it and download the map protected.

    It's like 3 days since I posted the post, and only 4 people have download the map...

    Well if its already been played by people like that then i'm sorry but I can not accept that map. Maybe try making a simply fast map such as a some simple minigames or some other map that can be made fast?

    Well... I don't want to enter with some map... I want to enter with MY map.. I don't got any new original ideas nor the energy to create a new map as I already got three projects.

    I'm really sorry to hear that as that would mean that I can only enter the contest with my weakest map =(

    If there is no chance for me to enter with those two maps, then delete me as a participant in the "Other" and "Minigame" catagory.

    I was just wondering.. What's the difference between testing with friends and playing online?
    I was just wondering where the border is?
    Does that mean that you can't be two people working at a map?

    well 2 people can work at a map but all entie team must be told to me when the map is sent to me or before. When I mean testing with friends I mean that i'm not just going to create a game, let anyone join and dl. I will only be play with Jury members.

    This is getting too confusing. How hard is it to figure out that if youve released the map to te public, either by uploading a DL link or by hosting public games then its officially been released, then u cant enter. Foos :p

    Ok you can not give away any dl links. You can host PRIVATE games on b.net to test. However these must be friends of yours and not people you just randimly meet on b.net.
