C3G Strategy Guide
Mephisto
Author: Ronin


Analyzed Statistics

Left Box Breakdown
Species – Demon (Synergy)
Uniqueness – Event Hero (Synergy)
Class – Hell Lord (Synergy)
Personality – Manipulative
Size/Height – Medium 6

Being a demon and a Hell lord grants Mephisto some very mild synergy, but the most important thing in Mephisto’s left box is his event hero status. Being an event hero earns Mephisto a lot of handy immunities. The two big ones, built into event hero status, are that he can’t be automatically destroyed by special powers (taking 4 wounds instead) and that an opponent can’t use any special power to take control of him.

Mephisto is also immune to many offensive

To be honest I have nothing to say here. I had never encountered lonewolf on the site, so I’ll let his interview speak for him.

ARV Maps - January 2018

Map Craft
Pathing
By: BiggaBullfrog


You may be thinking, I hear “pathing” all the time, but what does it really have to do with map-making? And why does autocorrect keep changing it to bathing? First off, it’s because “pathing” isn’t a real word and “bathing” is. I believe pathing was first “officially” coined by mad_wookiee in his article about it in his Cartographer’s Toolbox (an awesome resource for any mapmaker, go check it out). Pathing is essentially the use of paths in a map to get from point A to B. Today, we’ll be looking at how you can use that to enhance your map.

Why Is Pathing Important?

Really, paths are crucial to a map. They connect start zones to height, to glyphs, and to each other. Maps with simple pathing will have a straightforward route for armies to follow where they will then meet in the middle

skyknight
Author: The Grim Reaper’s Friend

Going into this interview, all I knew about skyknight was that he had a slightly disturbing avatar. After talking to him though, I was deeply impressed with who he is, what he’s done, and the contributions he’s made to HeroScape. After reading his interview, I think you will be too.

ARV Contest Review
Uncharted Wellsprings
By: Sir Heroscape


Hey all, this month is our second installment of our contest reviews! This time we’ll be discussing the maps we saw submitted in our Uncharted Wellsprings map building contest.

Contest Overview:

The Uncharted Wellsprings contest was one of our favorites! We kept all the terrain and map building parameters the same except for the fact that the map submissions had to have a designated wellspring indicated by a power-side-up power glyph. We were excited about the prospect of each map submission having to balance their design with a specific power glyph as well as the inclusion of a wellspring, and we were surprised by just how many different designs were submitted.

Submissions:

This contest was one of our most popular, with a whopping
