how should we determine size of the map?
What are the sizes we can choose from, something like what exactly is considered as small map, medium map or large map? Or should we describe size of the map in x * y dimensions?
There will be a ton of resources tutorials data and such coming very soon I promise, most frequently asked questions will be answered soon in those

Havn't played in a while, but looks really cool! gj
Oh god yes.
Some questions tho :
- Can we send multiple ideas ? I have lots of projects / ideas ongoing and I honestly can't choose which one should I submit...
- If 2 projects are basically the same, who would win ? The most documented one ? The most "code oriented" and resource-involving one ? The one that already have some code done ?
- Can more than one of a man's project may be chosen ? (yes I'm dreaming lol)
- Can we get involved in more than 1 development of maps ? My holidays are on august so I would have a lot of spare time.
I think this is under team's leader discretion, but I want to know. Money-related stuff are always complicated.

You got an awesome idea for a spell ? Want to see your favorite spell tweaked in a way you like ? Come on and see the result !
Why is map editor still in beta -.- It really needs improving tho
Guess depending on the success of community maps they will improve the Hon interface and make it possible that FFA looks like FFA and not like 5v5 with friendly fire on.
Most of the UI should be accessible by map creators as well
Wow. Just wow.
Finally S2 started doing something to support custom maps. Although imo this should've been done years ago, I am still thrilled about the fact. I love you guys.
One question though: are CIS players eligible to participate in the contest?
