OVERWATCH STATUS GO





THEME

The theme for this mapping contest is PUZZLES. The idea here is to come up with great puzzle concepts. It can be riddles, it can be SC-related puzzle (think of qPirateKing's StarCraft I map "Nydus Canal" or of Kaias' StarCraft I map "One Trigger"), or look more like Devourer's type of puzzle maps (adventure-type, with rooms), or Puzzling maybe (puzzles requiring coordination, with rooms)?


JUDGING

Theme: 10
Is it actually a puzzle map? Should be easy points.

Professionalism: 15
The aesthetic in general, color choice, atmosphere, lightning, typos, etc. The number of things that could make you lose points on this is rather large.

Fun: 15
Judges will have to keep in mind that these are puzzles, and therefore people playing these maps are probably expecting puzzles. Thus, while they might not find it fun to solve your riddle, maybe it was exactly what someone else was expecting.

Originality: 10
Is this original? Am I going to wish I had come up with the idea, first? Is this basically a well-known puzzle adapted to StarCraft II?

Total: 50 points

Zoan -- i just tested. you actually just cant move unfinished buildings I guess. Tried moving all players and players 9 -12, tried giving players then moving. nothing works if its unfinished, but as soon as it's finished it works.
