Posted by:epidiOn There will be a BWM.N ShowMatch of oG)Duke vs ToT)iNcontroL( January 13th at 2:00 PM CET. The full news is available »here.
iNcontroL won the match 4-2. There were some minor complications that were my fault, but we pulled it off. I only got to see one game, but it was a tough one. The full article and replay pack are available at the above link.
Very late because we were all to busy to decide as it seems, still we have a job to do and here we have the newest Map of the Week on Broodwarmaps.net
The creator of our newest Map of the Week, the russian mapping superstar Spitfire, , has created another great map, Valhalla, which really looks like an awesome map to me.
The map has unusual dimensions, a great use of widened ramps, a brutal count of detail, and a very strong battlefeel to it, after you have to take the center to be sure not to be overrun by a good Terran attack, somehow like Ride of Valkyries. You can easily take you natural and then be ready for a fearless macrogame. Protoss shuttles as well as Zerg Mutalisk may be "it" on this map against Terran.
To me, it looks like one of the most interesting maps in the past weeks and so deserved the wonderful title: Map of the Week.
What is this you say? Well what do you think!? Could it be anything else than:
As the map above indicates it is time to make a teamplayer map. The choises are quite free this time, except that decoration is a must. Im a sucker for beautiful maps so if you wanna win - decorate! :8
Competitionrules: * 6-8 Startcloations - map must be playable in 3v3 * Tileset = Jungle, Twilight or Space - Anything else is not accepted * Dimensions = 128x128 / 128x192 / 192x128 - Be careful - dont make it too big... * Deadline 18th of January - Thats 10 days from now
The map must ofcourse be balanced, but remember that its a 3on3 player map so focus on 6 players instead of 2. For instance there might be neccesary to place quite alot of expos compared to a 2-4 player map. Goodluck.
ps. im the sole judge in this competition and i will proclaim the winner as i see fit. If i choose the winner just because its the prettiest map - fine. Im the one deciding ;P Don't whine - Decorate.
A new year, a new start, a new great map of the week! This time the author is noname who have a map in the first BWMN Map Pack, but no MotW untill now! Congratilations to noname with his first MotW which is called (4)old town0.2.
The intresting elements in (4)old town0.2 are the natural buildings. They are placed very good, so the pathfinding is still on a great level. Those natural buildings are a very important element of the map. In the frist view, we can see a semi-air expand. But in long games, they can be used as a second door to the vertical location. The map also have some very well protected natural expands in the middle, wich are also a very usefull tactical element of the map. I also want to say that this is one of the best maps i've ever seen with so well good used Temple Wall!
Again, congratilations noname, for the great work. Really this is your best map ever!
