About Control Freak map:
The idea behind the map is to make the players feel the need to control all the key points in the map or sacrifice some in order to strike the enemy. But what it would be the right decision?

And just a small tip for Spoils of War map:
Going from from bottom to top, the player of each team must build navy.
Next player (going up) must tech up and support the bottom player.
The other 2 players in the top must attack and put pressure on the front.

That "shared responsibility" map looks really quite interesting. Think that has a lot of potential with the retreat-able expansions and huge flanks.

Now we have two weeks till August 25th for map testing and possible fixes/changes into submitted maps.

Wow, this map contest is a thorough success already ! So many awesome maps. Super Newbie should at least get awarded the purple heart for making SO MANY MAPS :D
btw is there a map pack for download? Even if maps are still changed would be good to have a convenient weekly update :)

Just a quick note, in the first post there's a small mistake in the numbering of the Casual Maps, there are two #3's. (#3. Spoils of War and #3. Love not war)

Updated the maps to latest revisions. Also here's an archive of current map entries bunch sorted by mods: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0yry89v9rh7uj ... 8.zip?dl=0 (will be removed some time in the future).

Important announcement: There will be a slight shift in contest dates. Freeze period is extended up till August 30th included. August 31st - September 9th will be the voting period, and final results will be compiled on September 10th. This is due to me being unavailable around previous dates to make all the work required.
