Actually kohtar I sent you pms with notices about your map not fitting the criteria. You never responded. Also.. disqualification doesn't mean a refund. It means a forfeiture of funds.
At least having an entry gave you a chance of winning above zero. Also.. your second map was not submitted in time and that automatically makes it barred. I can post the time stamp msg on here if you want.
Shortly after your original submission I told you it needed to change objective.. Sorry.
In tournaments, having a life also gets you skipped. It just happened to me.

Thanks for participating and join the next one

Yea it's only one day to enter.. it's not difficult to enter. I'll do another one after this. I think the wildcard will make it fun. Btw, it's not a contest to build the perfect or best balanced map to be in the rated pool.. it's just fun between map authors. So buckle up buttercup!

I have a template map already created. The idea behind it is to modify as we wish, but the layout is intended to show tile spacing which helps balance across the races. There are hex patterns, single tile centers, 3 tile centers (where they meet at vertices is center), and normal symmetry. The entire map is not meant to be used but rather erased and retiled to suit the needs of any new map. The map template is called templateLRG, and i have made one map with it as an example named "oddball". Of course we dont have to use it, but I wanted to let the team know that it is there as an option. And since it seems like the start of this is going to be approached from a "wing it" ideology I think using it will help alot.

I think the 4 tile contribution per member is going to protract the cycle time frame by a huge margin. My suggestion is a group discussion with everyone participating in a given map to hammer out the general objective and base crtieria before starting. The initial design may look nothing like the final product, but all will be able to watch the evolution of the design and more able to agree with future edits.

Version 1.7.3 & 1.7.4 graphical bug


In match listing screen the highlight behind users race graphic is not showing up correctly behind the users. In these instances the blue highlight rectangle draws in between users.

Causes and recreation:
Unknown. There seems to be no commonality or reasoning for the error. It only happens to some matches, but not all.

Has anyone else experienced this phenomenon?
