    if i read this correctly, there will only be 1 map at a time available.

    s2, plz dont let this mistake happen. you have made a VERY smart decision by making the game fun in a way dota and league havent done yet - doing what wc3 did

    so please have a tab or some other page that has some sort of list of games, not everyone will want to play the same game, but there should be enough people that want to play each game.

    Only one of the "special" maps will be available via Matchmaking at the same time - Forest of Caldavar and Midwars will not be affected by the change and stay in Matchmaking every patch. FoC, MW and Prophets are available in Matchmaking this patch, next patch Prophets may or may not be replaced by a different map (Grimm's Crossing, Rift Wars,...).

    All maps can still be hosted in public matches, regardless of whether they are currently available in Matchmaking or not.

    See here for more details.

    This is a really good idea for a few reasons, but I think the one that will fly under the radar the most is how easy it would be to monetize this in the future in such a way that rewards community involvement and playtime.

    Something like Merrick's Wishing Well: where every patch cycle - players can put 1 Goblin Coin in the well and 'wish' for which community map they would like on the 3rd slot rotation for the next patch cycle. For others who can't spend the Goblin Coin, they get the opportunity to play 10 games of some kind.
    I'm judged by my wild image a lot
    And everybody seems to think I have a sinister plot
    I do! Be offended by every sentence I jot
    I got some militant thoughts, and you ain't killin' 'em off!
    So listen...

    Indeed it's a great addition to newerth, and the contest is the thing I'm most happy about. I was worried we weren't introducing any sort of custom maps but rather we were privileged to make some maps which replace rift wars... with the entire community involved we're thus closer to the original goal and eventually we may get there.

    This is the best idea s2 announced since ultimate avatars. I am very excited to see where this is heading!

    The concept of maps like wc3 custom maps is the best thing HoN has ever done, literally, and it's something that puts it above LoL and DotA2, if only S2 could get the word out that they have this and DotA2 does not.

    HOWEVER, this is ruined if only 1 map is going to be available at a time. Let people choose from multiple options! There is no good reason not to do this. Imagine if wc3 battle.net was like "this week only wintermaul, next week only hero siege, 3rd week only hero arena"

    that would SUCK.

    Also Prophet mode is an interesting idea but I think it sucks, so for example I'm shafted.
