Hi All:

I was invited here by oaktown.
He's just finished being eliminating me from his Indian Empire map.
It looks like he may even get his fist win in this one.

I'm really intersted in this experiment. Please count me in!

Thumbs up for in-game advertising to your opponents. ;) Keep that up.

I've been around 3 years, made ten maps or so, of relatively high rank, CA for a year, post regularly.

OH I missed the fact that you wanted it brief... may bad! lol

Been doing digital art for about 4 years, know how to give graphics criticism.

Brief enough?

I won't be able to devote enough time to joining this group.

But if anyone wants advice on making realistic terrain (see Oasis, Winter, and the terrain on the Crater map), feel free to send me a PM and I'll try to help out.

I'll just keep editing this post as a running list of volunteers. As I see it we have:

foundry regulars: oaktown, gimil, sailorseal, bryguy, whitestazn, lgoasklucyl, cairnswk, the.killing.44,

Less regular, but not exactly new either (fewer than 200 posts in the foundry): Danyeal, captainwalrus, Premier2K, Kotaro, Bruceswar

fresh faces (fewer than 30 foundry posts): lokisgal, s3xt0y, Supreme_Pookie, jpcloet, GrimReaper, hwhrhett

optimus prime and lancehoch expressed interest as well.

gimil and I will put our heads together and try to come up with a plan of attack.

Well I must say this looks interesting. Count me in.

High ranker, with a different point of view than many. :) P.S. When does this start?

During my six months at CC, I have spent much of my freemium waiting time browsing the Map Foundry, and occasionally making comments that I hope are useful. My rank should make a nice counterbalance to Bruceswar.

Found this though the topic in callouts.
Sounds great and maybe it'll give me some inspiration for my own map. Count me in. :)
(I'm not a foundry regular but have an eye for detail and am creative.)
