MOTM 01.08

deadline to enter maps: 2007, 01, 30 (Year, month, day)
Let's start off 2008 with a great first MOTM! Try to actually make maps this month, and maybe testbug won't win every single time!

The competition is closed!

Ok I'm asking panschk to setup an ip ban on anyone who submits Frosty Fortress. Flo, make a new map please!
Fuck off!
Change frosty a little, change it's name and submit it. :>
Frosty is clearly an extreme case, it has already competed several times and been in the top 4 positions. It is also competing for (2)MOTY. When flo persisted in having it in MOTM-12 I requested that he at least upload some replays and he complied, so that was OK. But we can't keep having the same map over and over, this is beyond reasonable. Even though Flo is a fellow admin we have already bent over backwards for him beyond the breaking point. I agree with Nightmarjoo this time, please flo make a new map.

What do the rest of the admins think with regards to this? Nasty, testbug, templar etc?
modified by Lancet
Since when is templar and admin ?!?
For a while so he could host that one competition. But he's not nosy like Lancet or compulsive like Nightmarjoo and then doesn't piss off anyone because he does very little (if anything) with his admin powa.
Confusion? Really guys, come on, it's almost identical to Shakras wich is MOTM-12. It's time to move on.
IMO, as long as he keeps trying to improve Frosty Fortress, I have no problem with it being resubmitted every competition. But I have to agree, that if he's not making any changes and it's lost this many times in a row, he ought to just let it be. If every mapper submits every map he's ever made every competition, just to see if it'll win, the competitions would be super cluttered. Although, to be fair we don't have any formal rule against this :P Maybe we should just vote on a new rule "Max number of resubmissions for MOTM is 3" or something.

"he does very little (if anything) with his admin powa."
I moderate flame wars when I see them, I upload pictures for people, I delete the occasional map (when it's really obviously stolen, or something else stupid) and other random things. I just don't make competitions very often.

WOW, THANK YOU Templar for your first paragraph. That basically sums up my argument against Lancet. Maybe he'll listen if a non-Nightmarjoo person says it.

And at your second paragraph, I praise you for your excellent use of administrative powers.

(to be fair, you asked me to do it)

WTF? Oracular just competed once for a MOTM and now it is in MOTY and I have edited it. What are you smoking?
What are you talking about?
Sigh..............I have not submited and resubmited Oracular to one competition after another. I submit my maps to MOTM ONCE and that's it except, of course, for the final MOTY where I just pick a few and submit them. I also made some edits before submiting it to EMOTY.

Please for our and everyone's sake, let's just drop this OK?

: ^ (
I feel at this point, that frosty had its chance. The map has been in the hunt for motm way to long and quite frankly there are better maps. IF that wasnt the case, then it would have gotten motm already. I cant imagine any changes that would benefit it enough to win motm at this point. thats my opinion. IF it does stay then I really dont have any quarrel but it is pretty damn ridiculous that flo continues to submit it.
We don't know if it was him who submitted it.
I was talking about Frosty Fortress Lancet, you initially were on flo's side for keeping it is all.
Not quite, I told him that he should include some replays to address the comment that it seemed unbalanced if he wanted to keep it and he did. It's moot however as we pretty much agree that it can't compete again.

Nuff said.

: ^ )
ehm guys...
i never added frosty fortress here.
i know.
flo was absent all this time
flo you had argued that because the map didn't "win" motm that it could be uploaded to every following motm until/unless it did ._.
which is correct as long as it's everytime very close to win.
guys... All this arguing is making me dizzy, lol

logically, shouldnt a Map of the MONTH be made or posted in the past month?
Already open??

modified by Crackling
Not yet, still a lot of people that have not voted.
i like hillfire. i think justguess is a genius. must be, the map is awesome!
hillfire has terrible mains
yeeeeeeah I don't like any of the maps here. I'm gonna pretend this motm doesn't exist, not voting or posting.
Rise of Teotihuacan should get more votes.
well, personnaly idk but i rather vote for maps that were actualy made in the month O_o
lol i think despite its look hillfire is a terrible unplayable map >.<
hmm i lost votes for elduo :( lol
FateD you lost my vote because it0s fucking unplayable.

why don't you test your own map? did you tried downloading it? it can't be played even in ums.
zomg forgot a start loc... O_O lol
Fixed!!!! O_o lol man im so sry, i had the map "lastest version" and had tested it, but it wasnt the same as the site :( sry lol
modified by FateD
Really? Only 8 people voted so far and two of the authors of maps here, ProTosS4EveR and mapON, have not even voted. Please give it a few more days.

Crackling voted (4)Rise of Teotihuacan as 1. choice
Testbug voted (4)Rise of Teotihuacan as 1. choice

i'm fairplay

ProTosS4EveR voted (4)Odyssey as 1. choice
: ^ )
OK fellow admins, I think the time has come to make the newspost for this MOTM.

The way it looks now is:

1) Odyssey
2) Rise of Teotihuacan
3) Hillfire

Agreed? If so who will do it?
You can do it, because the other admins don't post motm, and I'm not posting 3 shitty maps rofl
OK, if everyone else agrees those maps will be the winners and I will make the post.
Johnny B.Goode
I really dont understand how you wanna play this map-Odyssey at all.Honestly,has anyone played this map before he voted for it?I dont think so!Or you have a weakness for scurrilities.The mains are uncontrolable long & large.They inviting to drop.Terran can control far to easy with his tanks not just his natural(s),the one from the other side too.Overall,exept the middle,the map is cramped as hell.Really,i see no chance to beat a terran on this map.Upload a rep and let us see how you win against a terran on this map.Surpise me!

Btw wasnt you 2,Crackling & Testbug who flamed alot against the map who won the Defenders of Gaia map contest? I think that map was not even half racialy imbalanced compared to your sweetie.
Johnny B.Goode:
1.-Odyssey is not a 1v1 map.
2.- not only we flamed the map who won defenders of gaia, but the entire comnuty
3.- you should follow the map's historial and read what have all of us talk about, reading the posts and so.
4-. this is not a normal map, this is a special "shitty map" with large mains (not as large and tight as katrina's) and the drop play won't let terran to turtle

last time a 7players map won (wasn't suppose to be a 1v1 map) it's the same with this map, made for the 2v2 map competition (but some1 submited it to see if it can win a motm) rule of the 2v2 competition was to make a 2v2 map "not 1v1able"

being the mains so large doesn't helps terran.
the map you are talking about was a 2 players map

it is you no-information that made you write these incorerences, so i'll wait to you to modiphy your post (i won't edit it)

can heroes got an honorable mention? i think it is the best map of the list :S
can crackling or nightmarjoo write why is heroes a bad map??
Why "Heroes" is a bad map

1. The mains are wayyyyy to big, main-nat distance takes you 1,5worker building time to travel >.<
2. The mains ahve got 7 minerals with the most fucked up formation ever made
3.Workers at nat mine minerals from the minonly (concept not working)
4. minonly producing weird path issues
5. The map only promotes boring main-main fights
6. after botch palyers took their 3. gas expo (in the center) they are like by a too small piece of the map, if you arent careful your units will get shooted by tanks or sth >.<
7.the minonly at 12 is COMPLETLY useless, just a DAMN placefiller with no use... those path at 12 is also useless
8. the multi at 6 is also completly useless
I already wrote why heroes is bad, look at its thread. Also, watch the rep between me and crackling.

Congrats at B- btw Crackling :D
heroes hasnt neither been tested by myself (except some basic CPU tests), nor have i even edited a bit. so dont make it motm. lateron maybe when it's improved.

oh, and crackling, shut up.
uhm, why shall i shut up?

i played it and just listed the flaws >.<
i didnt try to make it worse tahn it is neither i was attacking you in any way
