Re: "Trophy Map" Contest Poll: G

Get Up or Get Wet is really the only one of these that I'm not too keen on, but Mist Valley and Crystal Caverns look like the best of the bunch, IMO. Both of these maps stand out to me, largely due to them having adequate start-zone protection (or, specifically in the case of Mist Valley, protection for unit just arriving on the battlefield) and larger center area.

Most of the maps in this contest do an excellent job of covering the bases (good lanes, protected start zones, metered height, etc), but these have really stood out to me.

WORST. PALADIN. EVER.

Overall Tourney Record: ....I don't even remember anymore!

Re: "Trophy Map" Contest Poll: G

wow, the final maps look great! My little idea has gone so far... they grow up so fast lol. anyway, might as well do analysis:

Mist valley: this one looks really cool, with some diverse terrain including good use of plants and ruins. I like how it's the only one that's an actual picture; the fact that the background if solid white gives it a certain isoleted feel that goes with the theme. Of course, this has nothing to do with the map itself.

Evergreen: definitely a lot of nooks and crannies for such a small map. There are definitely a lot of places to hide behind, but I still feel like things would get clogged up in the middle despite all this.

Crystal caverns: probably the most visually appealing. The mountain in the center guarantees things won't get clogged up in the middle. Other than that, though, the battlements don't easily conceal figures of about 5 height or more, so it might be a little open.

Go up or get wet: Don't take this the wrong way, whoever made this, but I think this map is the worst of the lot. A player can easily walk upthe bridge and snipe his opponent's start zone with height and range, especially if they have flying, like a dragon or atlaga. Also, the water is placed on top of the grass, not at the same level, which looks less professional to me. That said, I like the idea of having to choose between height and a glyph. This map is just too simple, though.

Darken Wood: A nice diverse map that has trees, height, and shadow tiles all dispersed. I like this map because it seems like range won't dominate, and there are many options to choose for figure placement. That said, a figure with 5 move and even 4 range can shoot its opponent's start zone in a mere one turn by walking up the side. Of course, that's understandably a problem with most of these maps.

These maps are all good, but I would say my favorite is Mist Valley, due to its diversity.

Wow, I clearly have way too much time right now
