Re: Ruins of Valhalla: Top 10 Posted!!

Consider this a (very late) acknowledgement of my surprise to make the top 10. I don't expect to win the grand prize, but I'm very gratified to have my map so well received after a long hiatus from the forum. Who knows, I might get back into mapmaking on a more extended basis when I have the time.

I did vote for my own entry, but since there's a lot of groundswell under Ruins of the Great Wall I figured I'd make note of my support for the other frontrunner, Desecrated Mine. I've been a fan of that terrain combination since Burial Marsh was inducted in the BoV. It's got a lot of unique challenges inherent in its terrain and it's interesting to see how different mapmakers combat them.

Will there be any battle reports of the NHSD event? It might be interesting to see players react to a pool of entirely new maps.

Happy NHSD everyone!!
Indeed. I will also note that the map featured in the video would not be permitted in any tournament that only uses maps with start zones that will accommodate the Hive. But, not my contest, not my rules.

Carry on, gentlemen.

I apologize if my post was ill-received. :'( to be honest, I was wondering whether or not I should post it....but I figured it'd add to the fun and get everyone pitching for their favorite map. I understand where you're coming from though, so I apologize for that...because yes, even though we're not particularly choosing the winner...because we're running it we should probably try to keep an unbiased opinion (at least till it's over). Still living and learning, so thank you for giving me an opportunity to learn!

But let us not dwell on it any further...

Yes. You can be assured I'll have battle reports for at least myself. I'll encourage both @TREX and @Tiranx to submit battle reports of each of their battles as well following the NHSD tournament.

My map accommodates the hive, directions are in the build instructions.

Running anything is a pain. A total pain. It's nearly impossible to run a thing without a few missteps. If you would like to count this as a misstep, I will not discourage you from doing so, but know that you have given far, far more to the community then you have taken away with one slight faux pas.

Fear not, my friend.

Re: Ruins of Valhalla: Top 10 Posted!!

I plan on using all these map submissions in testing units, or just playing for fun. They are all quite awesome. As much as I love all the BOV Maps, I have played on them quite a few times each in tournaments and just casual games at my home. It is refreshing to use new maps, along with new customs from HOSS, C3V, and C3G. I really appreciate all the time and effort put into all these entries. Any feedback for maps I run testing on will be given once this map contest is over. I do like the idea of keeping all the entries to contest like this in a singular place so other scapers can grab them up and play on them as well. As far as @Sir Heroscape goes, he is a kind person with nothing but great intentions. I'm sure his video with a map entry was because he is most excited about this contest and all its components, not as an attempt to alter the results of the contest. Thanks again everyone for participating.
