First off all: Sorry that it took a bit longer this time, the decision on this weeks MOTW was just harder as usual. But we finally agreed on our newest Map of the Week, it's (2)Space River from Starparty !
Again, Starparty created a neat and balanced map. Space River comes up with several routes to your enemy or his expansions. Almost every expansion is in range of Zerg Lurkers, Protoss High Templar or the well known Terran Tank, so you can do serious damage everywhere you want to, or simply show your opponent how to defend your sparkling mining area. So shake your hands, grab your mouse and your keyboard and download our Map of the Week 39!
And again, don't forget to visit our MOTW-Tour partnersite GosuGamers.net as well, this page just rocks ass. :)
Oh and, "There are currently 400 maps in the database." Woohoo!! :) But the search for the best maps is still not over, participate with your opinions on the next Map of the Week, just click here and post your sugguestions and comments.
*** UPDATE *** MOTW? How to vote? ***
After flothefreak and some others asked how to participate in choosing the next MOTW, i decided to explain it to you all, just in case :)
We vote every week our new Map of the Week. We do this with the "motw XX" topic in the Competitions-Section on right hand side. There everyone can enter a MapID of the map that should be considered as the next map of the week. The Map should be in the user-final category, simply because these maps don't go trough massive changes after being final ;)
This map is then displayed with all other sugguestions on top of the "MOTW XX Competition Page". There you can also enter your comment to the maps shown, explain why you would like to see a particular map as the next MOTW and finally give a vote like "I vote for Space River to be MOTW 39". That's it :)
read the latest newspost on GG.net about our new map hero Travin :)
A bit dissapointed that broodwarmaps.net is not mentioned anywhere in the post though, since he is active member here and most of the maps were developed with the help of bwm.net users. However Travin himself is not interviewed so i guess we have Entropy to blame :P
Posted by:Starparty Yes, ive been away lately. I have no internet at home :( BUT atleast ive done SOMETHING constructive... Ive taken a deeper look into Worldedit, the map editor of WarCraft III, and I must say that im impressed. Making maps to War3 is almost the same as making maps to any of the Heroes of Might and Magic games (for those who have tried that). Personalizing every remote part of the map is great, and upward ramps creates a whole new world of symetrical mapmaking :)
To show You just some samples of what can be made, ive uploaded my 3 -so far- war3 maps made these past days. They come in chronological order.
