Okay, I am overall happy to say that we got some activity in the melee forum. Lots of people I haven't seen in there made a few maps and though not all the maps were great, I am happy with improvement.

Alright here we are... people thought SENers couldn't make melee maps huh? Well here are the top five maps. We have Melee downloads for all and Observer versions for some.

5th place: (2)Dedrater by SexyPinkPrincess
Melee: [attachmentid=21794]
Obs: [attachmentid=21795]

4th place: (2)Shine by DaFlood
Melee: [attachmentid=21797]
Obs: [attachmentid=21798]

Now the big winners...
3rd place and 100 minerals: (4)Chainsaw by MillenniumArmy
Melee: [attachmentid=21800]

2nd place and 250 minerals: (2)Lavocla by SexyPinkPrincess
Melee: [attachmentid=21802]
Obs: [attachmentid=21803]

1st place and 500 minerals: (4)Divine Star by MillenniumArmy
Melee: [attachmentid=21805]

Whew... Great maps, huh? 1st and 2nd were close, but MA pulled it off with his beautiful and balanced Divine Star.
Okay, that was pt. 1, now heres pt. 2.
(4)Divine Star and (2)Lavocla will be featured in a Melee Tournament along with the pro map (2)S ignal by trcc. Here it is.
PM me if you want to participate, probably best 2 of 3 matches whenever people can fit them in. Please participate if you are any good at melee.

Thats it. PM me to join, I'll add you to a list im the melee section. Congrats guys.

I've made modifications to my two maps on I made them on mon or tues, which was before the deadline, but I 4got to PM you the updated ones. Mainly it was Chain-saw which i made a significant change.

I don't agree with the placing at all =/ Shine isn't even balanced.

Im hoping your being sarcastic, cause how could it not be balanced. Its a mirror image.

LOL Maybe cause Protoss can't flank Terran for crap on that cramped map? EDIT: Not to mention the map isn't actually symmetrical, as the ramps are different (on the 12 o clock ramp you can build stuff on it).

I agree Caboose, but I really think Chainsaw was better than Devine Star. Chainsaw is an interesting battleground, with interesting looking flow (too bad there's gas issue at the naturals TT). Devine Star is just TOO standard =/ It's got a boring layout and looks to be just a very simple macro map. A base on each side, with 4 corner island expos just isn't very exciting to me. Take out the decoration and it's one sad looking map. It works, and it's balanced, but it's got nothing for interesting gameplay. I don't want to bring MA down, I think he's an excellent map maker, much better than myself. I just feel Devine Star wasn't a very good map.

I also liked chain saw better. And I fixed all those issues in ver 1.1. Only thing is that I 4got to submit the updated ones for the contest.

Ah owell

You should update it on BWMN, they've still got gas issue at nats =S It's just my opinion, but I feel it's very important for ZvZ to have equal main geysers, aswell as equal natural geysers. Every drone is so vital in that matchup.

Even if I did keep my Bridge2Bridge in the contest it didn't have a chance

Wow... okay very perturbed. Next time let sexy judge because this contest was totally ruined. For one... um dedrater was WAY better than lavocla. In fact, dedrater was the only map I would've actually played on in a tournament setting aside from Glaive. Until next time.

Btw.. The first place and third place maps are great but still have imbalances. Anyway...

Also Shine is still very imbalanced... Erm yea.

When it comes to melee, just rofl

Instead of looking at how well the map looks, u should try visuallising balance.

Eg. TvP is severely imbalanced on Shine

Even though Edge's maps looked way too symmetrical, his maps were better than Shine.
