We've still got some life in us.... let's make some more maps so we can have some fun!!! Also.... we want to have a 1v1 tourney and we will use the winning map for the tourney
1. AoW1 Multi-Player Maps 1v1
2. AoW1 Anything goes category (for those of you that don't want to make a 1v1 map)
All maps must be NEW maps so if it's currently available in the downloads section it is not eligible for this competition. Submit maps to the downloads section in the normal way then put a post in this thread to let us know the name of the map submitted, and which category (or categories) you want it entered into.
Category 1 for 1v1 maps - All maps must be playable under standard Triumph Studios TS136 ruleset. Any size, any races, etc just keep in mind that putting 12 races and 3 levels on a huge map for a 1v1 game may not be the best course of action (just a tip from one of the judges
Category 2 for anything goes maps - Any ruleset can be used for the second category, any size, any number of players... it's anything goes!
You can enter as many maps as you want, and you can enter them in either category 1 or 2 (but not both). Tip.... if you don't want your map to be used in the tourney then just submit it to the anything goes category.
The closing date for submissions is Sept 15, 2008 (23:59 US Eastern time).
Any forum member can submit a map, but it must be a map they have created themselves, although other people can be involved (help playtest, translate, write story, etc).
Maps will be scored by a panel of judges (yet to be determined but I'll be one of them). These judges will score the map based on several criteria
Category 1 (1v1 maps) - Balance, playability, and is it worthy of being the map for the tourney.
Category 2 (antyhing goes maps) - Fun, Originality, Creativity, playability
Eternal Fame and Glory will be given to the winners. In addition.... the winner of the 1v1 map will have the honor of having that map used in our Fall 2008 1v1 single elimination tournament (details to come in a month or so).
If you need some cool tips for creating good AoW1 maps, you can go to our Custom Map Makers Resource, created by the highly talented Blue Collar Heaven.
Once maps are registered in this thread I'll create a list of all the maps.
Feel free to comment or ask any questions about the competition in this thread.
