If you've got Firefox and have it set to save your windows and tabs, it'll keep the form filled out for you. I was stumped on Map 35 and 40 for a long time and let them sit for a bit before coming back with fresh eyes. I shut down FF at least a half-dozen times before pressing Submit.

Oddly, #40 was the first one I got; I recognized it right away. #35 drove me crazy though.

#36 was the tough one for me last round. Round 3 was the hardest so far. I had 3 maps I had difficulty finding... Look forward to coming rounds. I don't know if it will get much harder unless you make the images we see smaller or more vague. I'm sure that' your plan ;)

That US Senate map drove me crazy... And it was an easy one lol.
Extreme Global Warming took me 20 minutes... I don't play those maps very often.

I think there needs to be a time limit on at least the last round. Eventually we can all stare at the images long enough to figure out what goes where.

I am liking the later rounds. Interesting how they can pick those 50x50 images and almost have no idea where they come from.

Didn't understand that part of the PM by the blue chameleon either.

and also all maps can be used! It means all maps currently available for playing (quenched or beta) , all maps that were available only for a while but that aren't listed on the "browse map" page and finally all maps no more available for playing.


What does this mean? Are you referring to maps that are only taken out for special days like St. Patrick's day. What about quenched maps? Where can we find these?

Wow, it looks like i've created a bit of confusion. Let me explain better.
All maps used for this competition can be found on the CC site, I will never ask you to find a map that is no more visible in some way using the CC site.
The images can be found in different ways (here below some examples) :

Using the Browse Maps page, where all quenched (available for live play) and Beta maps are listed.
Using Map and Mapmaker database ( the link is also available in the Foundry ).
Using the Gallery Index, where all maps are listed.
Browsing the Viewing Gallery
Using the game finder page (in which also closed maps are listed)

So, it means all maps currently available for live play, all maps currently in the Beta stage, all maps no longer available that were used for special events (St. Patrick map is a good example) or that were revamped (only if the image can be found using the CC site or using a link posted on the CC site).

Let me know if you need further clarifications ;)

Well everyone it has been fun. But I can't afford to dedicate more time to this contest. I find that looking over each map for hours to find a specific part is not really a good use of my time.

While I think this contest had good intentions, it really has turned into nothing related to "knowing" maps.
Anyone (even people never at CC) could dedicate enough time to find the maps and answer correctly.

My suggestion if this is to be done again in the future (and I think it should be) is to have a time limit.
If a person only had 10-15 or 20 minutes to answer the 10 images, that would go much further in showing who really knows their maps and who doesn't'

Again good luck to everyone else.

This is a really good suggestion WM. I started working on it when you suggested this improvement yesterday, unfortunately I had less than 24 hours, then I need a bit more time. But i'm working on it ;)
