    Yeah, I'm only releasing one a week now of SC2 campaigns.  I'll play anything being made, though I should make a new update here soon to collect my thoughts for all my series, then make a channel update video.

    -Judges include Jayborino, DeltronLive, and Pr0nogo.
     
    -All submissions will be played by Jayborino, DeltronLive, and Pr0nogo and showcased on their respective YouTube channels once the deadline passes.
     
    -All three of us have extensive involvement with playing custom content from all 3 games, so hopefully that instills some level of trust when we say that fun factor really is number 1 in terms of possible judging. We play each of these games and do not really prefer one over the other. We understand that, for example, the SC2 Galaxy Editor opens the door for many more possibilities, but can also be much more time consuming, so there are many balancing factors that we're very aware of.
     
    -Besides creating an enjoyable map, other factors to consider when creating your game include accessibility, creativity, story/theme, and balance.

     This is a good idea, we'll have to revisit if we have enough entrants.  Deltron added a line to the info channel saying the "rewards" may change if enough people submit :)

    We had no idea how to forecast realistic participation.  I'd like to split the games into their own categories, but only if we have at least 3 participants per game, which seems like a lot for a community run contest.  We'll see how it goes.  There is no point making it more detailed for absolutely no reason, especially if there is low participation, but feel free to expand your thoughts for us.  I can't glean anything from "I'm disappointed" with no elaboration.

     

    The prizes and overall stakes are purposefully low here and it's more to give a basic excuse for folks to show off their mapmaking chops and have them showcased to a large audience.  The reason is to encourage someone to participate even if they don't necessarily intend to be the absolute best, plus it also makes it easier for us as administrators too.

    Major framerate issues on map 20.  Interesting concept, but 10-15 FPS is rough!

    Apparently having a baseline, functioning government is leftist in your sci-fi wild west!  This also sounds like a spiritual prequel to the Perfect Soldiers universe where there is no government and giant, nebulous corporations mandate how people live with no oversight to their moral hazard.

    FYI, We'll probably we starting this sometime near the release of SC:RM

     

     

    In reply to DrSuperEvil:

     
    Thank you for your input.  This will not be more than a few months because it is a light-hearted contest, not a call for the best maps ever to exist.  The scope needs to be clear and we can't just let a deadline creep out for months and months and months. 
    We're between 2 or 3 months right now and 3 is on the table mostly so that anyone who finds out about it late can still jump in.  RTC was 3 months and a lot of folks appeared to pick it up late and submit right near the end so mimicking that seems appropriate.

    I'd say playable from start to finish.  That doesn't mean it has to be perfect, but there can't be anything gamebreaking.  Thanks for pointing this out, I will add it to any official rules we put out.

    Single Player Map Contest (IN PLANNING)

    Hi everyone! I'm Jayborino, but my friends call me Justin... probably because that's my real name and it would be weird if they called me by an online username. Anyway, you may be familiar with my YouTube channel where I showcase boatloads of single player content across Blizzard's RTS games.

    Two other community members, Pr0nogo and DeltronLive, and I are looking to bring about some cross pollination of these communities around our love for some good, ol' fashioned single player content.  Creators from any of the three games can submit!  We are really just looking to gauge interest and participation here at first with something more official coming later if we think enough folks will join in. These are all early ideas as we're looking for feedback at this point and we'll add more of the semantics later.


    If you are interested in participating, please let us know here in the thread or by PM, thank you!!


    Contest Rules and Conditions

    • Submissions must be playable in StarCraft 1, StarCraft 2, or Warcraft 3.  To be clear, for ONE of these games.
    • Submissions must be single player only. Mission 1 of a possible campaign, a stand alone scenario map, or Arcade-y type maps which could include virtually any style of gameplay.
    • Submissions must be new maps, started at the time of the contest
    • Submissions must include instructions for how to play, whether it be in offline mode for StarCraft 2, on Battle.net, through the custom campaign interface of WC3, etc.
    • One submission per person/team.
    • This is still in brainstorming phases, we're looking for any feedback that could make this appeal to more contributors. We want the barrier of entry to be fairly low. See judging section below for answers to inevitable questions of imbalanced cross-game judging.


    Prizes

      • Depending on # of submissions per game, we may have a winner per game, then an overall winner of those three
      • Prizes may depend on which game the winning map is for or perhaps just winner's choice. Please leave feedback on what below may incentivize you to participate.
      • Bragging rights; the thrill of winning; good exposure to my viewerbase; SC: Remastered key/s, SC2 co-op and/or collectibles DLC; WoW expansion or time card; StarCraft Risk Board Game; attention from your friendly, neighborhood senpai Jayborino


    Judges

    • Jayborino
    • DeltronLive
    • Pr0nogo (unless maybe he submits)
    • YouTube viewer polls


    Judging/Voting Criteria

    • Deltron and I have extensive content on our channels and our experience hopefully instills some level of trust when we say that fun factor really is #1 in terms of possible judging. I play each of these games and do not really prefer one over the other. We understand that, for example, the SC2 Galaxy Editor opens the door for many more possibilities, but can also be much more time consuming, so there are many balancing factors that we're very aware of.
    • We'll nail the judging criteria down in stone if this becomes official and are looking for feedback to again make this as appealing to creators as possible to participate.

    Mission length felt absolutely fine to me and did not come across as too long nor short.
