8 Player Map Contest

deadline to enter maps: 2006, 06, 10 (Year, month, day)
Nastymarine:
Its hard enough to make a balanced/playable 4 player smash hit map, but its also a great challenge to make a good looking/respectable 8 player map. I'd like to see who can make the best one of these monsters in a 128X128 map. Its actually a big challenge .. i started on one a few weeks ago and expo placement is a bitch (at least having expos creatively placed etc). So with this said, i would like to have a little side competition for any mappers who feels they are up to the challenge. There is no exact criteria other than that it has to be 128X128 and it has to have respectable concepts/ideas.

GOOD LUCK!


So if I understood correctly, it is
  • 8 player map
  • 128*128
  • I decided to make may eighth the deadline, feel free to change it.

    Is it possible to be island?
    flothefreak
    that would be too easy syndrome ;)
    NastyMarine
    yes it wuld but if u keep me posted with images of it (like little glimpse of what ur doing) i mite consider letting it come into the competition)
    decafchicken
    Yawn, another bad competition.

    I'm gonna make a sweet one someday.
    NastyMarine
    ... thanks
    Arden(WoF)
    Let's see you make a nice 8 player map Decaf...
    JK)Valkyrion
    mmm for put an image what i do?, i was think that i put [img] and [/img]but not work t.t
    Arden(WoF)
    Hm... Your imageshack upload is being gay, can someone delete that?
    NastyMarine
    I cannot edit it. wish i culd :/ panschk could u make it so we can edit posts in these threads?
    panschk[FP]
    I could
    decafchicken
    "Let's see you make a nice 8 player map Decaf..."
    I havent made a map in months :(
    NastyMarine
    no excuse... but even if it was, dont bash an competition idea jus cuz it mite not favor u or cuz u (in ur own opinion) dislike it.

    but neway who is submitting maps for this competition?
    inept
    no1 lol ;) make a speed competition!
    LaO-Artanis
    Nasty, remove the min onlies on it, make the center high ground as well and add 2 gas expos in the center seperated by some low dirt and you'll have a fine map imo o.o
    NastyMarine
    yeah i was thinking that but i wasnt trying to make it good... jus suttin different/new and nor was i pushing the map into the competition
    MillenniumArmy
    I am going to see if I could make an 8 player map ASAP :D
    LaO-Artanis
    Nasty, that's not the point. It'd be a really cool 8 player map, and why wouldn't you want that? :P
    decafchicken
    The godliness of this competition is demonstrated by the many maps submitted.


    And i'm voting for meleniumarmy because his map is sexy
    flothefreak
    yeah, finally a contest mosq can win!
    woohoo!
    Arden(WoF)
    Ugh, someone please submit something better. Anything will do. Mosq's map's nats are just horribly imba ggnore.
    ScoutWBF
    yeah yeah I will go and make one.But first I will make the most uncommon map ever XD
    NastyMarine
    Ill move the deadline to the 8th...

    if i dont see more than 2 or 3 maps, i wont announce a winner.. it wuldnt be a competition at all then.

    So if ur submitting a map tell me so i have an idea of what im dealing with.
    lnept
    i think mosq's map is pretty creative. Its a fucking 8 player map, why are you complaining about balance? most games will end before you even expo. I could i imagine some nice teaming up if you get 2 players in the same corner , good use of the special ramps too.
    NastyMarine
    yea it is a pretty nice map, but i'm not too fond of those ramps. he did do a good job tho.
    flothefreak
    hm okay then basically every 8player-map is good and balanced, because nothing matters? well, if there is no measuring unit for any of them, because flaws and imbalanced don't count, why is there a _competition_ about it?

    ...
    that is lacking something. uh yeah, i know: sense. 8[
    inept
    not necesarily. If you have seen the Map( Untamed Wilds by blizzard)its 256x256 and 2 people start on islands, 6 dont. That is imbalanced. But besides that yea, its hard to make an imbalanced 8 player map unless you do it deliberately.

    i think that is why no1 likes this competition lol.
    Valkyrion
    so for my map?
    NastyMarine
    i havent seen ur map
    NastyMarine
    aight i saw it.... its very very very tight. and i dont really like the cliffable expos to be honest
    Valkyrion
    y very tight but it's a 4 players map not 1vs1 or 2vs2, so is not a big problem the narrow path ,imo.
    SynDrome
    a 128 x 128 map size with 8 players on it CANT be balanced. If its balanced, the map will be borring or look like crap. just look at The Hunters.
    lnept
    the hunters looks great and plays great...what comparison are you making? its very balanced btw.
    NastyMarine
    true
    NastyMarine
    doesnt look like this compeition is worthy .. :) lol

    jus gonna hafta scrap it
    SynDrome
    I mean, some nats are tankable from other sides, and some are not. and position 11 o clock has to beat 12 before he even gets out of his base. What if 12 contains 11 and theres 9 that makes a gay tank on the other side of 11's nat? how the hell hes suposed to defend that? along with other gayness that can happen in that map. Why 1 o clock has 2 exits from his choke? wtf? so is 3. 1 o clock's main can be canon rushed trapping a probe in a hole in the mineral line and making a canon? all that stuff and some other gay shit really puts that map to shame.
    SynDrome
    talking about the hunters.
    lnept
    no it doesn't, it just provides different strategies depending on location. Seriously, after 4 player maps, balance really doesn't matter that much. You'll have allies to help you out of tight spots like the 11 location. If worst come to worst at 11, you can always play a drop, air, or just try to break out game. But i do agree 11 is the worst cuz it has the tank drop spot and all that other shit lol
    king of 8 plr maps
    Ok guys didnt see that there was a contest for 8 player maps, so I wipped up this one, its got cool gameplay never seen on an 8 player map.
    king of 8 plr maps
    take note how i setup the expos, its perfectly balanced mineral wise this most important thing in making 8 player maps.

    though i made the minerals uncommon but works this way too, theres many ways to add expos to 8 player maps, it doesnt have to be like a 4 player map.
    This setup is more on side of challenging expos but close to each player so each can get expos without too much trouble, and this make game alot more fun.

    Northlands Lullaby
    Way to unbalenced all mid bases are open to attack at thier naturals, and other bases are safe.
    this bad map just for this mistake.
    panschk[FP]
    deadline is 10th of august right now btw. Is that what you wanted? -__-

    Maps right now really suck, is that all we can do T_T
    King of 8 plr Maps
    remove 128 size ristriction, and make it 192, its harder to make good map with 8 player with good size bases on 128, doesnt fit right, you can be creative with this limit. unless its a micro map i got alot those i made
    King of 8 plr Maps
    well im not gonna submit anymore, I got like 60 8 player maps, Im not gonna flood this for some contest till you guys find one you like from me.

    point of this is to get lazy map makers who care only for 2-4 player maps to make one
    King of 8 plr Maps
    im only one submiting new maps for this, everyone else just subminting maps thats already made from last year.

    mOsQ lullaby
    king of 8 plr maps
    yeah august better, gives more time for people to make their maps. may 8 came around and only 1 persion submited a map.
    NastyMarine
    panschk jus delete this comp.. not enuff submitters... ill think of a better comp later this weekend
    king of 8 plr maps
    no this good idea for this type map
    there just not enough good 6-8 player maps, mabe this will get people to make including you marine, if you have 1 add it here, so what if im the winner.

    joke
    king of 8 plr maps
    Marine I'll even help you to make your map better.
    NastyMarine
    nah i dont have any intentions on finishing that map.. however i think what lao artanis suggested wuld make it fine.. i may finish it and post it up some time in the future.

    "Nasty, remove the min onlies on it, make the center high ground as well and add 2 gas expos in the center seperated by some low dirt and you'll have a fine map imo o.o"
    lnept
    maybe we can try a freestyle contest where the starting positions and stuff are very different but are still some kind of balanced
    king of 8 plr maps
    every map no matter how many players on it, needs to have some kind of balance, even 8 player map needs it otherwise nobody would play it.

    It's ridiculous how some people think just because blizzard makes their 8 player maps unbalenced that it makes it ok.

    Though theres an exception, you dont have to make it 100% balanced as pro map, cause its really hard to make it 100% with 8 players it just that much harder to do. That doesnt mean you make every 8 player map without a care for balance.
    lnept
    no...because some people like me like to play unbalanced maps because they are very fun
    Arden(WoF)
    Eh, I guess that could work for 8 player maps, but I surely wouldn't enjoy playing on a severely imbalanced 2-4 player map competitively.
    MillenniumArmy
    I added Inner Cloister because I think it looks really cool
    king of 8 plr maps
    Yeah hes a deserving author, hes only guy who actually knows how to make good 8 player map work.

    I collect some of his works, he has 3 other maps thats not on this site thats pretty good.
    Listoric
    Inner cloister is best so far, by far, imo.
    the dentist
    inner cloister is pimp
    king of 8 plr maps
    Inner cloister needs some fixen in middle those minerals like that just make units walk threw miners, the ones around outside of middle.

    king of 8 plr maps
    Think Allied forces more fun map to play, Im not just saying this cause its my map but Ive been playin it for years, alot friends love that map.
    king of 8 plr maps
    Inner cloister the problem with that map is the base entrances are right next to each other in a closed area, players can get shot down easly if hes not terran or weak player.

    and your allies has long way to get to you because of the entrance, or if you ally doesnt want to open his entrance, of fear other other player next to him.

    Nice looking map but needs fixen in alot ereas, I would move entrance facing out, its too unbalanced this way.
    s17eoulnightly513~
    am i win???
    King of 8 plr Maps
    who hell put all the same maps, my maps are double and so are alot others.
    NastyMarine
    ill make the decision soon
    Arden(WoF)
    Yeah seriously, I love the clown who submitted multiples of the same map, and don't forget about (4)Raptor -.-
    Valkyrion

    the dentist

    Valkyrion
