Map Battle 44 - Confliction

Postby Major Banter on Wed May 12, 2010 1:01 pm

I sincerely apologise for the delay; it's only been a week but it's been a right pain in the backside.

A quick note; my exams, along with several other Brits on this site, are happening right now. That means that, understandably, a number of UK based 'lopers may not be able to participate for a while. This does include myself; although my real exams finish on the 8th of June. I should be able to join you all then, along with hopefully a few other true-blooded Englishmen.





The theme for Battle 44 is thus:

CONFLICTION

"A state of disharmony between incompatible or antithetical persons, ideas, or interests; a clash."


So why confliction?

I had an idea running around in my head about opposing elements or themes; it was mentioned several times in the Suggestions thread. Rather than do a single one I thought "bugger it, I'll condense them all into one overarching idea"

Ideas

You could do elements, ideaologies, humourous "wtf" moments - anything based around disagreement or direct battle. If you can't do better than a battle sequence, so be it. But it better be good.

Remember; the themes are vague so you create something based on your initial idea on reading the theme. Fire and Ice comes into my mind; equally it could be Man vs Machine. Go nuts.

Deadline


As always, one month exactly. That's the 12th June, 22:00 GMT



Standard rules apply.


Feel free to contact me or comment with any problems. Enjoy!

My mind went directly to the Neverending Story, where the nothingness was taking over Fantasia. I'm gonna give this battle a go.

I'm going to make a juxtaposition of an alternate world.

Might give this a whirl, exams in a few weeks might stunt my progress though.

I've been busy.

I didn't bother turning any HUD bits off because I was testing the FZ melee weapon at the time.

Took about 30 mins to get this basic layout.

Haha, man vs trees(nature?).

Man will win, with our chainsaws, flamethrowers and such. We can also use hippies as shields.

I'm done.

Ok, for those who don't know, this was my entry I slapped together in 3 hours before the deadline for the 23rd map battle which dealt with juxtaposition. viewtopic.php?f=12&t=23853 There were some REALLY sexy entries there.

Reason I'm bringing this up is, there were quite a few interesting things floating around the suggestions thread, but Juxtaposition was picked for the third time.

Come one guys. The map battle was delayed for so long and when it pops up it's a rehash of something that's already bee done twice.

I know that many more members joined in between '08 and now, so at least it won't be a 1 - 1 copy, but I am still dissapointed at this choice.

That's my 2 cents.
