  1. If you've clicked this thread then you knkow what you're getting into: you wanna know the winners of the latest Meet Your Maker Forge Contest. So that's what I'm going to give you... After talking more about the contest first. This year's Meet Your Maker was centered around Big Team Battle with Assault Rifle and Magnum secondary as opposed to the Matchmaking loadout of Assault Rifle and Battle Rifle secondary. One of the main reasons for this decision was that the Battle Rifle dulls the effectiveness of vehicular combat in the game where as the Magnum is strong, but not nearly was powerful. Battle Rifles also take away from effectiveness of the weapons and power locations on the map. You already start with a precision weapon that has a decent red-reticule range and better smartscope range so players feel they don't even need to use a lot of the map's original assets. The Meet Your Maker BTB Forge Contest saw an upwards of 50 submissions this year making it the second largest Meet Your Maker since 2013. A lot of Forgers submitted multiple maps to this in hopes of winning the great prizes to be dealt including Arena REQ Bundles and signed poster by 343 Industries! From May of this year to the end of August, Forgers were laboring away at some awesome submissions to this big community Forge-off. It's important to note that for this Meet Your Maker, we took the top 3 maps as grand winners. And now we're gonna move on to those winners! (Did you read anything I wrote before this?) _____________________________________________________________________________________________ Echoes by The Grim Dealer Echoes is a canyon style BTB map reminiscent of older designs such as Valhalla, while also taking inspiration from Halo CE's campaign spaces. Echoes is notable for having much more geometry breaking up the canyon itself, establishing clear lanes of travel, blocking longer lines of sight, and allowing for greater vertical overlap. The lowland bases take inspiration from prior canyon maps but also improve on them, with a protected yet accessible interior and a large overhang that provides cover from the neutral banshee. Each base is outfitted with a Rocket Warthog, a Ghost, and a Wargoose. A Sniper and a neutral Spartan Laser can be found across from the banshee at top mid. Echoes plays best for Capture the Flag games, but also supports slayer. Echoes shows that there is always room to improve upon tried and true design formulas. By introducing new elements and finding solutions to the problems of its predecessors, Echoes succeeds at breathing new life into a classic genre. Traffic Jam by IMAROLLINGSTONE & STUNT ARTIST Traffic Jam is a smaller, urban BTB map inspired by the busy streets of New Mombassa from Halo 2 and Halo 3: ODST. The map is inversely symmetrical and split into several interlacing vertical levels, which are accessible to infantry as well as vehicles like the Rocket Warthogs and Ghosts. A large bowl between the bases offers open space for driving, as well as a fast yet dangerous flag route through the middle. A three-tiered structure in mid houses a SPNKR Rocket Launcher and also acts as a power position over each base. Roads and alleys snake off from the middle and around the backs of the bases, underneath them, and above them allowing for a variety of approaches on the flag spawn. Many tactical jumps allow for risky but quick routes in and out of the bases for those with the skill to pull them off. Traffic Jam was one of the most polished maps submitted to the contest, showing the importance of continuous testing. With its hilly streets, twisting tunnels, and sweeping overpasses, Traffic Jam is the epitome of an urban BTB map. Dispelled by TimeDipper Dispelled is a massive, forerunner-inspired map that accentuates the qualities of a classic BTB map. Its massive footprint and mix of sprawling hills and tight interiors harken back to maps like Blood Gulch and Waterworks. With a sandbox that features Scorpion Tanks, Wasps, Warthogs, Ghosts, and Wargooses, as well as an Incineration Cannon, Rockets, Sniper Rifles, and more, Dispelled offers a vast array of options for players looking to mix up their play styles. The many tunnels, catwalks, and man cannons make it easy for infantry to move across the map without being overwhelmed by the vehicular mayhem. Dispelled's primary objective mode is Capture the Flag, however it also plays very well for Slayer games. Dispelled proves that very large, classic style BTB maps can both support casual vehicular mayhem and competitive, strategic plays. By balancing so many different parts of the sandbox in one massive play space, Dispelled offers a huge variety of unique experiences to be had. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Thank you to everyone who participated and supported the Meet Your Maker BTB Forge Contest. Congrats to the winners and enjoy your awesome prizes! We encourage everyone to try these maps out when possible! Be ready for Meet Your Maker Weekend!
  2. The latest Forge Contest is hosted by several community members and sites, this time around is a Big Team Battle contest. "Meet Your Maker" will be judged on July 31st, 2016. Here are all the entries before July 28th. Contest Page: Click Here!
  3. The Meet Your Maker Forge Contest has always been a large-scale Forge contest attracting many different Forgers spanning all corners of the larger Halo Community bringing them together for the common goal of winning this massive battle royale of wonderful Halo map madness. The first Meet Your Maker Contest, the brainchild of previous Site Moderator Absolute Dog with the previous THFE, was a 4v4 core/competitive Infinity Slayer Forge competition hosted by ourselves in alliance with many big name Forgers such as Psychoduck, SaltyKoala, WARHOLIC, undr zid, and Spades N AZ. This ended in Redemption1272 (XDemption)'s victory with his map, Edifice. Creator of Fracture in BTB, Squally DaBeanz came in second place with his map that has transcended across almost all Halo games to date: Stigma. Our second runner up was made by one of our Community Cartographers formerly known as The Fated Fire- now Fated Fireman- called Black Site. The second Meet Your Maker Forge Contest was a Dominion-based competition that brought out the best of the Dominion Forgers. Not as many submissions but this was a very successful competition nonetheless. PA1NTS took first place with his map Monsoon. First runner up went to Xinshu's Sticky Fingers and second runner up was Typhoon by DUN3Z. Upon his departure from 343 Industries Community Forum, Absolute Dog handed the rights of the Meet Your Maker contest to trusted Forger and Community Cartographer Psychoduck. Psychoduck created the third Meet Your Maker in conjunction with ForgeHub which took place on MCC's Halo 2: Anniversary. Now we have more presences involved in this year's contest than ever before. Hosted by HaloCustoms in association with us here at 343i.org and BTB.net with the support of well known YouTubers like UnsortedGaming, Ultimate Halo, Vetoed, and Zandril. We present to you the Meet Your Maker BTB Forge Contest: Prizes This year we're taking the top 3 maps as winners for this competition. Each of the three winners will receive the following prizes.

  7. Hello everyone welcome back again to the Wrapup and thanks for keeping interest and encouraging these to keep being made. Let's do December!: Primary Announcement: December was a major month for us here on the site and something that really stuck out to me and should really be taken to consideration is this thread made by our Comms Department's Dog. Check out We Need To Appreciate. COMMUNITY EVENTS Out With A Bang Trilogy Event Parts 2 and 3: Modern Warfare and Halo 3 "Send me out... with a bang..." Don't know much about these Events myself but I'm sure they were spectacular. I mean you're talking about 2 titles that changed the way people played Xbox Live! These games revolutionized competitive gaming. Halo 3 MLG was a very big part of my time on Halo 3 and a lot of other people's as well because it got its own playlist! Modern Warfare and Halo 3 were both Pro Circuit games back in the day. Again, so disappointed I missed out.. The 343i.org 2013 Christmas Tree I'm putting this in the Community Events section because that's essentially what our Christmas Tree is. It is an Event in which our Community participates in on the site. I also think violet was a good color to highlight it with. Although it doesn't require us to get online and play together it requires us all to be on here and give the things we don't need, sometimes things we actually go out and buy specifically for this, to our fellow members. The Christmas Tree was started a year ago and always gets tons of gifts under it from our warm community here at 343iCF. I won't give a list of the names of members who provided gifts for this Christmas Tree simply because there is a long list and I don't want to type it. Maybe I'll edit in later? Anyway, all contributors to the Christmas Tree got this very prestigious site Award: - This would be the Helping Hand Award. Given to those who have given to the site. Thank you to everyone who donated to the 343i.org Christmas Tree, it would have been nothing without all of you. If you have any Community Event ideas post them here. FEATURED INTERVIEWS Bob - One of my favorite members on this forum. Bob was our first Site Moderator and is a generally interesting person. They say if you see him on the site and get to talk to him, you'll have good luck for the rest of your life. *Interviews have resumed. Preaacchh.*/hint FORGE Ok who remembers the Meet Your Maker Dominion Contest that concluded in December? I've got the results for you in case you missed them! In third place: by DUN3Z In second: by Xinshu And in first place, the winner of the Meet Your Maker Dominion Forge Contest is: by PA1NTS Featured Map: December Unquestionably the most interesting map of December, Duel-Wield Puzzlers by Juggacly, is a 2v2 puzzle map! I love puzzle maps! There are two teams of two and they have to navigate obstacles and help each other reach the finish of the map where they get to the area seen above with a Shmeef in it. This to me is a must download and play with some of your friends. Congratulations @Juggacly on having the Featured Map of December! GAMING NEWS Games Coming To Nintendo In 2014 TheCooliestOne of our News Group hit us with some awesome news about the upcoming games from Nintendo and they look so good that they make me want a Wii U. I didn't even get a Wii. For the list of games and their trailers, click the picture. New Creative Director for 343 Industries Some big news brought to us by adamj via TeamBeyond. Josh Holmes, former Creative Director of 343 Industries, has stepped down from his position and has been replaced by Tim Longo. The reason for the switch is unknown for now. Please visit adam's thread for more. For more Gaming News check out the latest on our Front Page. HOT TOPIC: December Only second to the Crazy Grunt's Riddle Challenge Round 6, came this thread in replies. Created by Member - , Who wants, is a topic about whether or not you wanted Hayabusa back in Halo 4 or whatever other armors you wanted. Apparently a lot of you had something to say on this matter. So congrats Echo CT on having the Hot Topic of December and everyone go visit and or revisit the thread! MEMBER OF THE MONTH December's Member of the Month never got their own spot on any previous Wrapups so I'm pleased to remind everyone of Sparky's electrifying achievement. Spark was a member who'd gotten a few Warnings but corrected himself, changed his ways, and showed his true color: pink. I've known Spark since he got here and he's a great member. Even though he's not the MoM anymore he still contributes to this community just as much as when he was. Congrats again Sparky! Announcement thread. MoM Post. NEW COMMUNITY MODERATOR Although not new now, Azaxx was promoted to Community Moderator back in early December. If you're on, chances are he is too and he is watching you. Azaxx is an ever-vigilant Moderator and is there if you need something. Revisit his thread! TOP 15: DECEMBER This is a section I would like to keep in the Wrapup starting now. I hope members get together and continue this tradition. The Top 15 list is composed of members who show the greatest contribution to the forum over the past month. If you have a problem with the picture then shut up and hold it forever. Now, here's our Top 15 for December: Sikslik7 Beckoningzebra1 Maestro the Stampede The Dumb Marine Silent Orbis D-38 Boss HaloGeek Brett Edward Kenway JXZAW Axilus Prime NOVA Shockgazm UNSC Spartan II onsokumaru Honorable mentions go to: Tucker Zandril and Elite FAREWELL As big and eventful as December was, not all events were cheerful. There was one very big event that occurred in December leaving almost every member in awe. Absolute Dog was a jokester from the start and was always looking for a way to get involved since he joined. He found a great love for this community instantaneously. One day he PMed Twam and asked if there was anything he could do to help and Twam told him yes, he could work alongside the one and only Spectral Jester and help moderate the site as a Community Moderator thus beginning his legend on the 343i Community Forums. And a legend he is. AD was not only a great Moderator but person in general. He had all the character, charisma, humor, and was stern but never strict when necessary. It was very easy to look up to a man like AD. He took this forum from the small isolated community it was and almost single handedly created all of its ties with its Affiliates such as HaloCustoms, ForgeCafe, THFE, and Certain Affinity. He was the bridge this site needed to help create a united Halo Community. Now the site has been left up to RedStarRocket and all of us to help keep it to his standards. It's impossible to measure the hours Absolute Dog has given to this site. We salute you AD and best of luck in future endeavors. RedStar, we're all here to help when you need it! Here are some last words Dog left for us on the site: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fhx-ZDIwu4w#t=0 Thank you all for taking the time to read this. Please stay tuned for a cumulative January Wrapup as well. Then we should be switching back to the weekly. This post has been promoted to an article

There was one very big event that occurred in December leaving almost every member in awe. [/color][/center] [center][color=#d3d3d3]Absolute Dog[/color][color=#ffffff] was a jokester from the start and was always looking for a way to get involved since he joined. He found a great love for this community instantaneously. One day he PMed [/color][color=#ff0000]Twam[/color][color=#ffffff] and asked if there was anything he could do to help and [/color][color=#ff0000]Twam[/color][color=#ffffff] told him yes, he could work alongside the one and only [/color][color=#d3d3d3]Spectral Jester[/color][color=#ffffff] and help moderate the site as a [/color][color=#0033ff]Community Moderator[/color][color=#ffffff] thus beginning his legend on the 343i Community Forums. And a legend he is.[/color][/center] [center][color=#d3d3d3]AD[/color][color=#ffffff] was not only a great [/color][color=#ffa500]Moderator[/color][color=#ffffff] but person in general. He had all the character, charisma, humor, and was stern but never strict when necessary. It was very easy to look up to a man like [/color][color=#d3d3d3]AD[/color][color=#ffffff]. He took this forum from the small isolated community it was and almost single handedly created all of its ties with its [/color][color=#d3d3d3]Affiliates[/color][color=#ffffff] such as [/color][b][color=#0033cc]HaloCustoms[/color][/b][color=#ffffff], [/color][b][color=#008000]ForgeCafe[/color][/b][color=#ffffff], [/color][color=#696969][b]THFE[/b][/color][color=#ffffff], and [/color][color=#d3d3d3][b]Certain Affinity[/b][/color][color=#ffffff]. He was the bridge this site needed to help create a united Halo Community. [/color][/center] [center][color=#ffffff]Now the site has been left up to [/color][color=#ffa500]RedStarRocket[/color][color=#ffffff] and all of us to help keep it to his standards. It's impossible to measure the hours [/color][color=#d3d3d3]Absolute Dog[/color][color=#ffffff] has given to this site. We salute you [/color][color=#d3d3d3]AD[/color][color=#ffffff] and best of luck in future endeavors. [/color][color=#ffa500]RedStar[/color][color=#ffffff], we're all here to help when you need it![/color][/center] [center][color=#ffffff]Here are some last words [/color][color=#d3d3d3]Dog[/color][color=#ffffff] left for us on the site:[/color][/center] [quote name="Absolute Dog" post="291860" timestamp="1387380492"] [center][font='comic sans ms'][i]I truly appreciate all of the kind words and remembered moments. In reading the various posts made here I have reflected back on some of the highlighted moments and events that shaped this forum.[/i][/font][/center] [center][font='comic sans ms'][i]My close friends here know who they are and we have talked. This is for all of you.[/i][/font][/center] [center][font='comic sans ms'][i]Thank You.............[/i][/font][/center] [center][font='comic sans ms'][i]Some of you already know this, but it bears another mention. This forum, what we were in the beginning and have become, is not based on any one person. Where I genuinely take to heart all of thoughts you have shared, the site is a culmination of all of us. Many posts have spoken to what I have done or made possible and I see that as a reflection of what the past and current members have given in either inspiration, support, active participation and/or friendship. We did this together.[/i][/font][/center] [center][font='comic sans ms'][i]Please remember what the leaders of this forum have to do in order to manage our corner of the Halo universe. Spades summed it up the best, though it feels self serving to say so. Providing solid and consistent leadership can often be separate from your personal feelings. Only a handful know how far I went to support some members and ideals of this forum and the price paid for it. It may surprise you to know who and what they were, but it will remain private. In the end, give the leaders and moderators polite respect and work to continue to build what we have and not tear it apart. Have conversations not arguments. We can not control the direction Halo takes, but we can control how we act and interact around the game. This is a forum at it's core and by definition offers the format for pro and con discussions to take place...........that has to be understood and accepted.[/i][/font][/center] [center][font='comic sans ms'][i]Thanks to each and every one of you for all of the kind words and support over the years.

  9. We have finally reached the point to announce the second runner up of the MYM Forge contest for Dominion. We had the honor of judging, testing and playing the best maps ever forged for Dominion. The forgers who participated should all be thanked for their hard work, but we had the job of selecting the best of the best. When we finally had the list whittled down to our final group, the play testing became a repeated series of playing the maps one after another then playing the maps against one another - so to speak. In order to get the best representation of what Dominion stands for and show the creativity of our communities forgers, we wanted to showcase maps that highlighted quality Dominion game play, creative design and challenged players to work together. It just so happens that the second runner up not only met all of those criteria, but was a beautiful map aesthetically. The second runner up is........... by DUN3Z DUN3Z has done an incredible job of blending solid Dominion game play with a variety of unique terrain and structural features. Typhoon is a linear-style Dominion map centered around a shipwreck which houses the Bravo base. The map supports loads of great offensive and defensive options to players, all housed within a fairly simple and easy to understand layout. The map also supports a Mantis at Bravo base which makes for an exciting twist. The call outs used for this map were fun to come up with and easily recognizable features allowed for quick recognition by team mates. This map will offer many interesting avenues of attack and defense for each of it's bases and provide for some crative game play. All in all, Typhoon provides for an exciting and balanced Dominion experience that is fairly easy to pick up and play. Congratulations to the map's creator, DUN3Z! Download map here
  10. Meet your Maker Testing Lobby Welcome to the new weekly testing event for MYM. This event is meant as a testing resource for forgers, looking to polish maps before submitting them to MYM. As a Judge on the MYM contest and Dominion Host at THFE, I will be able to provide valuable feedback for potential MYM Submissions. What kind of maps can I test? This event is centered around potential MYM maps. Since MYM is focused on dominion, we will only test dominion maps WE WILL NOT TEST A MAP THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN SUBMITTED TO THE MYM CONTEST. Can I test with a custom gametype? NO, Since MYM does not allow custom gametypes, we will be testing with the standard Dominion Matchmaking gametype Should I post my map in the submission thread before requesting testing? NO, Maps will not receive feedback or changes after being officially submitted to the contest How do i get my map tested? Simple just reply to the thread as follows Example: Map: Corrosion Gamertag: AbleSir Thomas Film: Yes, I may not make it to testing How do I join testing?
