UPDATE: Ryan (Creation) has created a thread here to let everyone know what's going on, go check it out and leave comments.

World of Starcraft by Creation

Remember last week, we newsed how Creation was creating his own rendition of World of Starcraft? Looks like it got a lot of attention and Blizzard sent YouTube a Cease and Desist on his videos. An educated guess would say that they are just trying to preserve their name ("World of Starcraft") rather than killing his project, that was made entirely through the Editor they developed. Before we all jump the gun, i'm going to try and talk to the author and find out exactly what the deal is, stop back later for updates. However, looks like there's another video up if anyone is curious...

Blitzkrieg Assault

Blitzkrieg Assault by Panzerhandschuh

This is definitely an interesting map indeed. The focus is split between leveling up your hero and maintaining a decent sized base to create an army. You do not have to produce the army yourself, you simply just have to build the different structures that auto-spawn units every so often, similar to Nexus Wars. Each race has different heroes with unique abilities, in addition to each race having different units for their army. The map supports up to four players and scales difficulty based on the current number of players. Below is a preview of the map as well as a gameplay video, so check it out!

[Campaign] Shadow of the Xel'Naga

Shadow of the Xel'Naga by OutsiderXE

This interesting map starts off just where the book does. The map begins on the planet Bhekar Ro and takes place between SC1 and the Brood Wars. It will be a campaign-like map similar to any Blizzard-styled scenario, complete with classic objectives, cinematics, transmissions etc. However, it gets better... This game is playable in Singleplayer or Two-Player Co-Operative gameplay. Currently, there is up to 45 minutes of gameplay with all kinds of different styles of missions and the like to go through, and to add to the replayability, there are 4 different difficulty levels. Not to mention, he has fully implemented terrain art, weather, and sound effects. This is defintiley something worth checking out for all you EU players (I know, i'm a disappointed NA player as well, maybe we can convince him to put it on Mapster).

War3 Legacy Remake Results

I would like to give a big thanks to the couple who participated, I really enjoyed seeing these few oldschool Melee maps make a comeback. Again, I will definitely be playing on some of these maps for training with some friends as I do play a lot of Melee. For anyone interested, check out their maps below: (In order from Left to Right, Abion47's Secret Valley, Abion47's Excavation Site, and OutsiderXE's Twisted Meadow).

We'll be coming out with a new contest, this one more scenic-related in the near future.

Dixel's TD

Dixel's TD by Popobawa and Noio

There are quite a few TD maps everywhere on Bnet, Dixel's TD is an interesting one. However, the goal is not just to survive, but to finish 26 waves as fast as possible. The monster will get weaker the further they went. So what's your choice? build at the front and confront the strong monster or builds at the back and end up getting low score ?
