This month we are having a forge contest that will fit everyone's forging passions!



The contest is open to all members, new and old, and will cover all different types of maps, mini games, races, challenges and art! Yes art!


Forge word has become much more than creating maps for fighting on. The are some game variants and designs I am sure were never envisioned by it's creators. I have played on, seen and created maps and games I had never thought possible or even considered in the beginning. As far back as Halo 3 there were maps of Japanese villages, unique races, beautiful creations that were just to be admired and of course some very unique slayer maps. Here is your chance to let loose and show the type of forging you love to do.


<<<<<<<<<<<<<<o>>>>>>>>>>>>


Here are the categories I have created.


Slayer


Create a map that supports slayer in any form. This will include everything from 1v1 to 5 v 5 slayer!


BTB Slayer


Create a map that supports big teams in any form. This will include teams of 6v6 and better!



Objective


Create a unique objective game type that covers any type of objective game play.


Infection


Create any type of map that supports Infection in any form. The possibilities are endless!


Invasion


Create an Invasion game that supports invasion. There are some forms that I have yet to see created!



Race


Create a race map that supports any type of race format regardless of how off the wall it is!


Mini Games


These are the game variants that just don't fit into the traditional slayer variant, but require killing of opponents as the primary challenge of winning!


Challenge


Create a challenging course for players to finish in either a required amount of time or by hitting certain milestones or achievements!


Vehicle Slayer/Challenge


Create a game variant that requires players to use vehicles to kill opponents or to collect a certain number of capture points!


Art


Create a work of art in Forge world! This can be anything from sculpture to villages to castles to dragons to space ships to tributes of Halo, just about anything you can think of! Let those creative juices flow and your mind loose for this one!


<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<o>>>>>>>>>>>


Rules and Requirements


There will be no posting of any contest maps in the Map Room or any other site prior to the voting thread going up!


The contest begins today and will end Saturday, April 28th at 6 pm EST. All maps must be submitted to me via PM on this site and must include the following to be eligible. Provide a link, if available by submission time, or invite myself, Absolute Dog, or One onto your finished creation for copying. You must provide a minimum of 2 screen shots of your creation and no more than 5. You must give a description for design/map/game.


Each category will be judged by either a community vote or a panel vote. The panel vote will be used in any category that receives less than 20 votes overall by the community. The panel will be at least 5 people who are either non forgers or outside of our community. I would prefer our community pick the winners for each category.


All forgers involved in the competition are required to vote in the competition. Any forger who does not vote will be ineligible to win or compete in future competitions. As forgers we understand the amount of time and effort it takes to create the environments to play in, on or admire and we need to support our fellow forgers!


You must be a member of the forum to compete! This must be your own individual creation! You must forge your work by your self! There will be no teams and no split prizes! These must be new creations designed specifically for this competition. You can only compete in one category!


Anyone caught cheating, creating multiple accounts to pad votes or otherwise deceive, defraud or rig the voting will be banned permanently from this forum.



The winner from each category will then be placed heads up against the other category winners and we, as a community, will vote for a "Best of Forge" winner!


There will be NO posting of these maps in the Map Room or any other site prior to the voting thread!


<<<<<<<<<<<<o>>>>>>>>>

Prizes


All participants will receive a forge award for their efforts and be eligible for a "Special Competition" coming up in the future.


Each winner of the various categories will be awarded 1600 MS Points and a "Best in Category" award and their map will be pinned the Forge Forum under it's specific category. (New categories are being added to the Forge Forum to highlight different types of forge).


The overall winner will receive either a PreOredered copy of Halo 4 or a 12 Month Gold subscription to XBOX Live, an additional 800 MS Points the "Best of Forge" award, have there creation pinned in the "Map Room" and be featured on the forums "YouTube" channel.


Any questions may be asked in this thread and will be answered by either One or myself!

Yay for One looking at my map! I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope mine wins for Art. REALLY. I want AD to see it if he's on, One says my map is impressive. So that means I am awesome at forging! :awesome: Really hope it wins, has tons of detail, aesthetics and I just really hope it wins. Another thing: Forge Only Map. No custom games, only Forge, without it, the map in customs will take away A LOT and I mean A LOT of detail on the map, so play in Customs. Map is called:

"The Art-Cade"


Not giving away any details IN the map, or showing pictures, just telling everyone that I've worked really hard on this map, it is NOT finished, we have 3 weeks so I'm not submiting a map that I only worked on for 1 day, I will add more detail in these 3 weeks. So, get your forging mode on and make your best map ever! 3 weeks will be over in no time, but don't rush, take your time and remember that it is YOUR map. Happy forging everyone, and thank you One! :D
