FANTASY COMPETITION

deadline to enter maps: 2013, 06, 31 (Year, month, day)


Remember this map? :)
Time to make your own~ In an attempt to bring creative map making!

Rules -
1.) Map must be made for this competition, and created from scratch.
2.) Map dimensions must be between 128x128 to 96x96 (112 is allowed.)
3.) If using past map(s), you must specify which map(s).
3a.) If using multiple past maps, they must be different tile sets.
4.) Must be (3), (4), (5), or (7) player map.
5.) Rotational symmetry, such as the map (3)Architexture, even though having different terrain, will not be accepted.
5.) COLLABORATIONS BETWEEN TWO MAPPERS IS FORBIDDEN
6.) Must have some form of balance

Things to Keep in Mind -
1.) Setups involving league maps will be frowned upon due to no creativity.
2.) Expansions should be in the same number for each start location.

... Might be a nice collaboration map for the community, a fantasy map... Might start that later :D

Who posted this?

Hmm... Maybe I can use this to finally work on a map idea I had a long time ago...
How different must the parts be? Would something like (3)Architexture suffice to qualify?

Hope there is some more participation this time. Almost hald a year should be plenty of time.

CrystalDrag
I posted this. o.o Should I have written this?
(3)Architexture has rotational symmetry, therefore should not qualify as a final, even though different terrain.

Anyway, you have to create a new map. :)

This is nice, finals just finished. What about (2) player maps?
Ride of Valkyries was used here...Also can someone explain to me what made this map so balanced? It's amazing how it\\\\\\\'s TLPD stats are so good...
Also what is meant by League maps?
Oh I get it the map has to be that many spawn positions
We should have a Blizzard map remake contest xD

Freakling
It's not positionally balanced, though...
Taranok
i feel like an unofficial blizzard remake contest has already happened at least once...

anyway, so you want different spawn positions and NOT setups from other maps?
Freakling
Upon closer look, I don't like this point:

"6.) No whining about positional imbalance."

I think the aim should be to get something as balanced as possible, or else it's too easy...
CrystalDrag
Guess Those words dont say it for me.
Editted it.

must have some form of balance.

TvT balance :D
Freakling
That would be positional balance. So yes, that one's to be considered, too. Because in TvT if one player has 9 minerals in main and a second gas natural at the backdoor and the other player starts out with 8 minerals in main and no gas at his single nat... Guess, who'll win in TvT?

Conclusion: Blending God's Garden with Nostalgia would just be an abysmal idea, think of something else!

Haha this seems like fun.

Are we really doing this? or no?
traceurling
Will there be a prize? :D
CrystalDrag
We really are doing this :D
*Note to everyone : Copy and pasting 4 different quadrants from different maps generally do not work.

aw crap you ruined my strategy D:

just kidding, I wonder if I will bother to make a map for this...
Phobic
I feel like these are the kinds of maps I'd be good at making.
traceurling
I just had a genius idea...make a map...and submit it to the Fantasy and Island competitions :D since Island maps are imba anyways, and Fantasy maps are imba...a little combined imba won't hurt too much :D
Freakling
Then make it 3 or 5 players, at least, so you can really abuse the merits of asymmetry to their fullest potential.
traceurling
I like how you think
Taranok
"I'm a loner" qualifies?

And these rules don't make sense, rotational symmetry is banned but axial is fine?
