As I am not a map designer myself, rather playing well-versed maps created by others, I declare my desire to become a judge. The only thingie (minor) is that I would only test H5 maps. If that suits you Vokial, I am in.

We really need this? I think this must be part of the respective sub catagory.

P.S.
No you can read "4.0 --- Criterion for maps, or how will the judges rate"

P.P.S.

Come on you mapmakers! Any comments

I think you need a criterion for the multiplayer maps for balance between factions as well as balance between players.

Other than that my map is pretty close to ready - I would say another week or so.

Edit: Oh and Vokial - are maps to be submitted and then get a final grade? Or is there the opportunity to get feedback and update the map in response?

Thanks guy,

I aslo find H4 mapmaker (finally ).

I think that the contest will begin in different time for the different categories, but we must wait for more maps.

When you send your map you must wait for the fianll date (after the date the judges will start to rate the maps) you can change everything till the finall date.

I was just curious to know how many people are working on something for this?? Or planning to do so... It doesn't really seem like there has been a hell of a lot of activity so far.

My map is probably still a week away at a minimum - making the darn thing look good takes an age.
