Yes there are less restrictive challenges out there that appeal to larger amounts of folks, but we still need the occasional head-scratcher.


I believe the last "Vertical" competition was restrictive (and to some degree, "head-scratching") enough, I hardly see any appeal in this idea.

I believe his idea is best left the way it is, it's not something that can be "fleshed out" nor does it need to be, he also provided some examples for us along with his suggestions. I trust such open concept as his would garner more imaginative entries and a greater degree of artistic freedom.

that would fit better in the model section, it won't show any mapping skills apart from brushwork, there are tons of other skills a good level designers needs, like lighting etc

Just an early suggestion that the next map battle should be "Keep It Clean". It's challenging, and very different from most map battle themes. Why can't we keep it clean?

I got some quick ideas:
*They are not in any specific order

-Peacefullness
-Space
-Wartime
-Wonder and Marvel
-Robots


Personally, I really want to do the robot one and the space one.

space would be too similar to the alien map battle.

Gimme a chance, there's a lot of unmarked images where I'm not sure if they're finals, and some image link issues. Working on it...

Back to the suggestions fellas, what do you fancy having a go at next?

Let's go back to the oldskool and have a template battle or a battle where theres a picture given and we have to use that as the base of our map.
