TW3 Map Creation Contest

Theme: Competitive
In a nutshell, this is a contest to see who can create the best competitive map with the TW3 Map Creation tool. You are encouraged to make your map look nice as well, but competition is the focus.

Eligibility:
-Anyone with a twboards account may enter (sign up at http://www.twboards.com/register.php)
-If you live outside of the continental US it may affect your ability to receive a prize (see below)

Submission
-To submit a map, simply post in this topic and paste your map code for others to see/play. Please post your code inside of the code tags (http://twboards.com/help.php#bbcode)
-You may submit a custom map that already exists, but only if you created it.
-You may base your design off of an existing TW map if you wish, but creative/original maps will be favored in the selection process.. If this contest goes well I would like to have one solely for re-created maps.
-Please upload and link to a screenshot of your completed map in your post. (www.imgur.com is what I recommend for hosting)
-Each twboards account may submit exactly 1 map for consideration. You may update or change your map any time before the deadline (just edit your original post with the new map)
-The deadline for submission is at midnight (EST) on September 22nd, 2013. That is two weeks from today.

Voting
-After the submission deadline I will narrow down the maps to an acceptable selection to vote on. I may or may not make use of a private panel to assist me. (TBD)
-If you submit a map to the contest, you must also vote, and you cannot vote for your own map.
-Any account created before today will have more weight in voting. This is because we know that such an account was not created specifically for voting. Accounts created on or after today may still vote but will have less impact on the final results. I reserve the right to dismiss any votes if I suspect cheating/multiple accounts.

Prizes

-The top five entries will receive a trophy in their profiles signifying their place in the map contest.
-The top three entries will receive a customized Territory War dog tag with their username (15 chars max) and text describing the contest and their placement.
-Until further notice I cannot ship the dog tags to areas outside of the continental US as the shipping costs are far greater. If I can find a better method I will update this post.

The rules and regulations of this contest are subject to change at any time. Just covering my ass in case I forget something really important wink
This topic is for discussion regarding the contest. Please do not post entries here.

Re: TW3 Map Creation Contest

A few questions:

Will maps that have already been suggested in a previous forum be eligible for the contest?

Will maps that are representations of existing locations be eligible? For example, if someone made a map of a famous landmark.

Will maps that are representations of fictional locations be eligible? For example, a map from another game, or something inspired from a movie or tv show.

Will maps that are carbon copies of older TW maps that are not available in TW3 be eligible? For example, an accurate portrayal of Pit or The Hill.

Will maps that are inspired by existing TW maps be eligible? For example, a Jungle 2, or a Void map.

Like you said, competition and not how it looks is the focus, but will any of these factors be prohibited?

Re: TW3 Map Creation Contest

Good questions- I've updated my original post to clarify a bit. Basically you can submit a map that falls in any of those categories. However, I will say that creative and original maps will be favored over those that are just a carbon copy.

Re: TW3 Map Creation Contest

Looks like my map is already beat by Harbringer's map.

Not surprised though.

No doubt, I can already see that it's gonna be hard to narrow them down and we're only 1 day in.

The best competitive map is either mirrored or gives each side equal advantages. Left side Island III has an advantage because of how easily it can access the lower islands compared to right side.

Re: TW3 Map Creation Contest

Mike, I didn't know you made that particular Island III (I've seen a lot in the Custom Maps lobby), my friend played yours against someone who I assume downloaded the map from here.

Dazer, thanks for making posting Sand Castle. I've been in Custom Maps a lot over the weekend playing noobs with shitty maps and yesterday night I played my roommate on Sand Castle and it was the funnest game I've played in a while.

Re: TW3 Map Creation Contest

Thanks Up.

Yeah Wally, I posted the code in Twin's topic some time ago, it's funny the way information spreads the way it does.

I really like Caldos' Lab because I feel a lot of maps have the same formula:

1) Symetry
2) Obstruction in the middle
3) Middle bridge or platform
4) Lower level or tunnel

I've fallen in this trap myself.

Caldos didn't follow any of those and so his really sticks out. Left side has some terrible advantages but at least it's not a copy of some other map we've seen.

I'd argue that moving to lower ground on that map is only advantageous for shelter+distance, and right side has the classic little alcove-like thing under the stairs which serves the same purpose. Additionally, it's much more difficult to bounce grenades on the staircase created via the map editor than Afro's staircases on other maps. I haven't played TW3 in a while, but when I did I remember Island III being a very fair and exciting map.

Re: TW3 Map Creation Contest

I just played on Mike's Island III map. I'm in love with the floating islands, while it's able to keep somewhat of the original Island theme.

Re: TW3 Map Creation Contest

I haven't played any of them, so I really should get on that, but it will be hard for anything to top Sand Castle. Mike's Island III is pretty great, but the jumpability and bottom middle seem a little clustered if we're going to get extremely nitpicky. Regardless, Mike and Dazer are probably the two best people in the community when it comes to the map-maker, so it should be no surprise their submissions are the two best (and will probably stay that way no matter what else is submitted).

Sand Castle just looks incredible to me in terms of its solid aesthetics and what is sure to be smooth and competitive gameplay. In my mind, it is sort of a jungle+castle hybrid map, which highlights the best aspects of both.

Yup, I took 999 damage once there and I started from 0 lol.

Very nice submissions, except for Strawberry's and Graveyard III. Best one so far has to be The Lab.
