Next Steps:
  • Judges will score each map individually.
  • Top 10 scored maps will be posted in a public poll by Saturday and it will last for 1 week for the community to vote on the best map!
  • Contest winner will be sent a custom set of ARV Dice
  • The Top 10 maps will be "accepted" for review by the ARV judges who will playtest them for balance and tournament worthiness. Maps that pass will be inducted into the ARV Archive
  • Maps that do not get selected in the top 10 or don't make it past the playtesting phase are encouraged to be workshopped in the ARV Workshop thread if the designer would like feedback and assistance in getting the map tournament ready.

All designers please PM me your .hsc Virtualscape build files so I can generate an HD image for each map for the final Top 10 selection if you are selected. @WarBeast @heroscaper2010 @Leaf_It @All Your Pie @Yodaking @superfrog @Owlman @NecroBlade @wumpis @Ulysses @Cleon @Herofly @Longy418

thanks to all! stay tuned!!
Yeah that was awesome to see a bunch of maps come in at the end. This was a lot of fun and got me back on virtualscape regularly. Stoked to see the reviews!

PM sent with the downloads.

Re: NEW CONTEST - The Spartan Scrolls




Triple-Play Frenzy Results


We recognize that these results from our previous contest have been a long time coming, and appreciate your patient anticipation. Two of the maps submitted have been added to our ARV Repository Thread - a thread dedicated to maps that typically won't be used in tournaments, but that we have playtested and found to be balanced. That thread can be found here.

Once again, we want to thank all those who participated in this contest: @Leaf_It , @Br1an , @Ulysses , @JaesShurrig , and @Yodaking

Accepted Maps


The Cirdan Garden by Leaf_It
Requires 1x RotV, 2x TJ, 2x RttFF

Reviews:
Spoiler Alert!

_________________________________________________________________

The Cursed Stone Table by Br1an
Requires 1x RotV, 2x FoA, 2x RttFF

Reviews:
Spoiler Alert!



Maps That Were Not Accepted

We appreciate the effort that was put into creating these maps, but we didn't find that they were balanced enough to be accepted into the repository. Please feel free to utilize our workshop thread located here. We would love to help you improve your map and then reconsider it for addition to the repository once it is more polished!

Re: NEW CONTEST - The Spartan Scrolls

I'm so glad these are up! Awesome work judges! I've used Cirdan Garden a couple times to show new players the game and it's played really well. I haven't had a chance to play Cursed Stone Table, but I have built the map. Br1an's build files are gorgeous with the attention to detail and classic rulebook scenario formatting.

I certainly agree with the reviews of my submissions and it's a little embarrassing looking back on them I had played Ringstrasse a handful of times when I was building it, but haven't come back to it after the competition due to the issues the judges have illustrated, though now with some more builds and many more games under my belt I may pull it up and tinker with it. Looking at it now, some things are so obviously broken that they look easy to fix.

Thanks for all the hard work everyone put into designing and testing these maps!

Lol - I know exactly what you're talking about. Some of my old maps are shall we say... decent at best. So way to get better at map designing!

Please do! I don't think it would take too much to open things up a little more. When you're ready, just head on over to the workshop thread to get more feedback, and officially resubmit it when you're ready. And it usually helps if you tag us too.

Good luck!

Re: NEW CONTEST - The Spartan Scrolls

Ringstrasse is good, it just needs a 1 - 2 hex break in the middle of the wall and it would be much better.

Re: NEW CONTEST - The Spartan Scrolls

Sorry I haven't been on here in so long, so I didn't see this until just now, but I am incredibly humbled that my first submission to a contest was accepted into the ARV. Thank you all for the kind words and I'm glad that you enjoyed the map!
