Pimp Classic Maps

deadline to enter maps: 2007, 04, 01 (Year, month, day)
It's been mentioned several times, ima take the initiative and create the comp :)

Rules: Take an older map (blizz or not) and make it better.

Things to consider:
  • Positional Balance
  • The Antrax Edge - ie wandering
  • adequete chokes
  • Room for defense buildings
  • Spells in maps?
  • Gosu use of neutrals?
  • Inverted ramps for pro positional balance
  • Large ramps/bridges ftw?
  • Best decoration you can muster
  • Inverting a map could be part of pimping it

    As of now the deadline is Saint Patty's day; it can be pushed ahead if necessary.

    Maps in contention:




    Neo Small Divide by ProTosS4EveR

    Blizzard's Original-------------------------------------------------->BWMN Pimped!



    Neo Volcanis by Lancet

    Blizzard's Original-------------------------------------------------->BWMN Pimped!

    I guess I'll do Neo Challanger =) This isn't at all what I had in mind though. Since when did StarParty ever try to fix balance?
    PsychoTEMPlar
    Holy shit, this is boring. I give up.
    Antares
    neo rivalry, neo triumvirate perhaps neo alpha draconis :)
    SpoR

    there we go, all blizzard MOTWs/MOTMs.
    SpoR
    Hmm I can't edit my post in here for some reason.


    2Showdown

    Any ladder map is really a candidate for pimping. Maybe if blizzard sees our good revisions they might pick up a few maps with the next patch.
    Nightmarjoo
    "Since when did StarParty ever try to fix balance?" lol? Did you not look at the maps he 'pimped'? Go look now please... He did not just visually improve them...
    PsychoTEMPlar
    He had a disclaimer that specifically said "I do not take responsibility for any imbalances in these maps". He made balance changes that were very convieniet, he didn't do anywhere near what this competition is asking of it's contestents. I believe that this is going to be too hard for anyone to actually participate the way it seems to be intending.

    Now give me power to write articles ;D
    Antares
    hey spor, i think there is nothing to pimp about meat grinder, blood bath and space madness :)
    Antares
    tomorrow ill finish two of them :)
    Nightmarjoo
    "I believe that this is going to be too hard for anyone to actually participate the way it seems to be intending" they can do w/e they want with the map. Probably anyone who submits a map will win with bwm competition turnout =/
    Antares
    hey i almost finished neo rivalry :) just wait, it'll be cool :)
    LostTampon
    hm, wasnt rivalry already pimped? :D
    Antares
    yeah shame on me :)
    LostTampon
    you could un-pimp it
    ProTosS4EveR
    I'm a bit alone xD
    Arden(WoF)
    Dibs on Proving Grounds
    SpoR
    2Small Divide woot
    Arden(WoF)
    Uh... Is it necessary to put "Neo" before the original name? Or can we just use "2.0" or something instead...
    LostTampon
    Neo sounds cooler :)
    Arden(WoF)
    Neo it is! =) Proving Grounds up...
    spinesheath
    You could put anything that clearly marks it as a revised version. How about BWMN as tag? ;)
    LaO-Artanis
    Can someone Pimp The Three Kingdoms? I used to love that map, and I think it'd be really nice with some true pimping. Tried it myself but failed horribly ^^
    Nightmarjoo
    LOL Artanis I was going to do that actually!
    Arden(WoF)
    Added some comparison pics. I'll update that as new maps come in.
    Nightmarjoo
    Nice Arden :)
    LostTampon
    ha! nice :D
    thx arden!
    ProTosS4EveR
    Great! :]
    You can easly see the differences.
    Antares
    gees i added mine.
    Arden(WoF)
    I'm still unhappy with Neo Meltdown... The original looks better (-.-). But I put it up there anyway because I'm all for equality... =P
    Antares
    yeah radix, improve your pimping ability

    mine could also be nicer, but its soooo classic style now, which is nice at blizzard maps and id dont want to change it :)
    Nightmarjoo
    thanks Arden with the instant updates on the pimped maps^^
    RaDiX
    Ye I know now ^^... U can delete it from here cuz I just had no concept for it when started.. Just took some map from there and pimped it ;P
    lnept
    meltdown was a funny 3 man ffa map
    Antares
    haha many competitors
    and someone has said this would be an empty competition :)
    ProTosS4EveR
    I was the official opener :P
    Kingsp4de20
    Kingsp4de20
    Why would anyone think this would be an empty compitition, everyone knows the BW map maker such and who better to fix their mistakes then us
    Arden(WoF)
    Allow me to translate for those who did not understand...

    Kingsp4de20: Why would anyone think that this competition would be empty? Everyone knows that most of the original Blizzard maps are low quality in terms of implementation; and who better to improve on Blizzard's shortcomings than the BWMN community?
    Nightmarjoo
    :D who better indeed ;)
    Kingsp4de20
    haha arden(wof) i think you should follow me around all day d translate fanor people what i really mean to get across ^^
    NastyMarine
    LOL :O
    LostTampon
    loooool
    Nightmarjoo
    lol Arden is such a great guy, I bet he would do that^^
    Arden(WoF)
    =D I feel the love in the air!

    ...Anyway, let's submit some more maps, people! My Html finger is itching with anticipation.
    Nightmarjoo
    oh noes so is mine!
    RaDiX
    Delete my map plz ^^
    Arden(WoF)
    Done, RaDix. If at any time you wish to put it back up there, just say the word =).
    Nightmarjoo
    lol
    ProTosS4EveR
    3 days to deadline... u_u
    I think there won't be more pimped maps :/
    TkTkVrooM

    Arden(WoF)
    <3
    tktkvroom
    there you go boxer has been pimped
    Arden(WoF)
    You know... I nearly forgot that I had my own map in this competition... lol
    Arden(WoF)
    Turned the map titles into links to the corresponding map threads for your convenience.
    LostTampon
    thx arden :)
    Arden(WoF)
    Deadline has been reached!

    I guess we vote now? (I have no idea what's going on)
    LostTampon
    me neither
    lets vote
    Nightmarjoo
    lol don't vote yet, there's so many more maps to pimp! Or, we can have weekly pimped map competitions for voting etc, just keep this one competition open, let people do the voting, post a winner on the news, then let people submit more maps, then vote again later.
    Testbug
    Neo Bridge too near and Neo Rivalry are really good. Neo Dire Straits is beautiful so it's ok.
    ProTosS4EveR
    who wants to vote first? -.-
    LostTampon
    my votes are:
    - Neo Small Divide (would be fun to test :D)
    - Neo Proving Grounds
    - Neo Rivalry
    Arden(WoF)
    We need some more votes up in here!!
    Falcon_A

    -Neo Dire Straits
    -Neo Rivalry

    ProTosS4EveR

    ProTosS4EveR

    ProTosS4EveR
    nah, i will lose x|
    tktkvroom
    I really like tampons map here, has really good game play it looks like. has SEX written all over it
    Nightmarjoo
    I added my map :) Arden could you make my map gosu up there too?

    Regardant Hawkeye is both inverted and pimped, and Hawkeye is definitely old enough for this >.>
    LostTampon
    nightmarjoo, you are too late ^^
    Nightmarjoo
    TT redo competition!!1
    Arden(WoF)
    Well... He's right, it is a little too late. Kudos to your map anyway Nightmarjoo. It will always have a special place in my heart ;).
    Falcon_A
    ...

    Shouldn't this be voted eventually?
    Lancet
    Now that we have the new voting system will these votes (as of today 4-14-07) be erased too?
    Antares
    shall we reset the votes?
    Arden(WoF)
    Yeah, these votes are hybrids. We need to reset.
    LostTampon
    hm, ya now it needs to be reset :P
    Nightmarjoo
    AND FOR HAWKEYE TO BE INCLUDED :)
    tktkvroom
    i love how this has been going on for like a month & the winner is obviously is LostTampon <3 yet nothing has been going on here
    Nightmarjoo
    Actually Neo Proving Grounds has far more votes.
    Antares
    Actually until reset it will stay messy
    Falcon_A
    Voting system is off.

    I voted neo proving grounds and it lost a vote or like gained 1 or something, and my 3rd vote gained +5 -_-;
    Nightmarjoo
    then you messed up your choices.
    Falcon_A
    No. Votes for Neo-Proving grounds don't count up. I tried like 5 combinations today. It doesn't increase the vote count. Works for every other map I tried.

    Just look at the votes and count them :/

    Nightmarjoo
    blame th0t and protoss4ever for not having changed their votes since the new system was implemented
