Posted by:LGI This is the first tournament based on testing the best BWMN maps. It will also help you to advance your skills in playing new and diferent type of maps. For now BWMN mappers and gamers + S.A Team are willing to take part in this tournament, and i hope that in future more people would like to take a part in it. It will be based on four BWMN maps. We will make it round 1 - first map, round 2 - second map - etc, etc, etc. If there is round 5 - frist map again and so on. Best of three it is :) . I think Best of one always makes some players to go cheese, which doesn't show what the map is giving to us.
Our goal is to find and show the best BWMN maps out there and World Domination of course :) . So every game that you play on a BWMN map should be saved. We need every single replay there is, so don't forget to save!
Start: 20:30 CET
Place: Europe, channel UNTour
Type: Best of three, loser picks from the map pack. The picks can't be the same if a map is played already.
Max players: 32 (For now :) )
Prize: First - 3 points, Second - two points, Third - one point :)
Rules: Just be mannerd and don't use gay tricks/bugs which we all know from the rules of other tournaments.

Round 1: (2)Cunning Stunts by Spitfire
Round 2: (4)Sacred Grounds 2.1 by MillenniumArmy
Round 3: (2)Trench Warfare by flothefreak
Round 4: (4)Beloved Land by Nastymarine
1. Inept from USA - 3 pts
2. Chus[S.A] from Bulgaria - 2 pts
3. Kobalt.org from Bulgaria - 1 pt
The number of the players wasn't really good. 12 players played on the tournament. We were 14 but two friends of Inept were really BM and they leave the tournament. The other reason that S.A Team didn't come in full package was that they had a Nation War, and then Clan War, so only three of them showed up + me four. I hope next time is better. Even whit the small nomber everyone have to admit that we all have a great time :) . And it was fun!
Here is a list of the players who took part in the tournament:
2. Kobalt.org from Bulgaria
3. Ukio_bg from Bulgaria
4. ScoutWBF from Germany (whit Korean flag in the site, so everyone can laugh at him)
7. Slabaka[S.A] from Bulgaria
8. Inept from USA
9. QcK[S.A] from Bulgaria
11. Chus[S.A] from Bulgaria
12. LGI from Bulgaria
Posted by:panschk[FP] This (actually last) week MOTW is an island-map by flothefreak that uses an interesting mainbase layout to improve zerg-balancing on island maps and offer fresh new gameplay.
While I can't be sure about balancing, this is definitely a map I'd like to play if I'd play at all :D
Ok I'm lacking inspiration right now, just enjoy the map and have a good week ;]
This week's Map of the Week is Antares' Arctic Scaffold! This hypnotically decorated ice tileset map captures some interesting play with it's nat not being a choke, it's mineral only you can take from behind, and subtle placement of neutral buildings. The map is good for drops, as well as open warfare. Now I may mess up again but besides the neutral buildings I think this map has no scmdraft needed things such as inverted or large ramps.
Give this map a try, it looks nice, plays well, and actually went through some edits, and most maps stay the messed up way they arrive to this site.

The Gunpowder Treason and plot ;
I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes,
'Twas his intent.
To blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below.
Poor old England to overthrow.
By God's providence he was catch'd,
With a dark lantern and burning match
Holloa boys, Holloa boys, let the bells ring
Holloa boys, Holloa boys, God save the King!
Hip hip Hoorah !
Hip hip Hoorah !
A penny loaf to feed ol'Pope,
A farthing cheese to choke him.
A pint of beer to rinse it down,
A faggot of sticks to burn him.
Burn him in a tub of tar,'
Burn him like a blazing star.
Burn his body from his head,
Then we'll say: ol'Pope is dead.
Guy Fawkes was also said to be "the only man to ever enter parliament with honourable intentions"
Just a bit of stuff :)
Now for the real news, there was no tourny this weekend nor for the last. When would be a good day to host a tourny? The map pool is undecided yet. This newspost will change to reflect what's happening for the tourny. The tourny does not have to be during the weekend. If I'm hosting it it has to be after 3:30 pm EST during the week and after 2:00 pm EST sunday. Saturday it's whenever I wake, though I could set alarm clock to wake at a certain time if there would be enough players for the tournament. I will make the tourny on the tourny site after we can get enough people. C'mon guys, you people are all in clans, invite your clan mates to come.
Nastymarine's (2)Undying Lands takes motw this week! The vote was pretty close between this map and GriG's Endorphine.
This map's most interesting feature is its nat which is a wall to the main. This means you have a little mining to do before you can expo, and it means all of your troops will have a hard time getting out of your cramped base! The map is well decorated and boasts liberal (and well executed) use of inverted ramps. Many of the expos are on cliffs, possibly favouring drops. With three entrances to the nat, three to the mineral only near you, and two paths to the mains, you'll have fun moving around this map!
