On a side note, I'd like to say that I loved #7's idea of using a satellite-type image, so honourable mention to you good sir or madam!

Apparently someone was promoting themselves. Plus, the original rules say nothing about anonymity, though they should have. That was my fault... first time running a contest.

wow. Tough call, I think.
Interesting to see how different they really are, despite depicting the same piece of land - like the extra Island of Nova Scotia and the shapes of the two northernmost continents.

I would have really liked to see the other entries, though. Can I entice you to put them back in once all is said and done? Or maybe there's somewhere else I can check them out?

Thanks.

It seem territories and bonuses are the same so it's just a question of design....

Both are really nice but I prefer tisha's one. A bit nicer but I 'd like to see it with troops on it. I'm not sure tisha's map will be clearer than Isaiah40.... Could we see it with troops?
I reserve my vote for now.

I'm always ready to help cartographers.
Also read this post, you should be aware of that as this map will soon be in the final forge I presume.

Vote if it's not done already and let TD know about if we should create a special sign for winners with a quick post.

Well since we are in the middle of the run-off, there can be no revisions to the map until the voting is over. So if you would like to vote, please do so soon! Like place your vote for me ;)

Both maps are good. I finally decided to vote for Tisha's for two reasons:
- The bonus is clearer
- Isahia40's diagonal image is pretty, but I don't think it would work nice with numbers on top of it.

I'd like to vote for a merge and joint effort.

Map Name - Isaiah40 (Tisha's look like lips)
Lines connecting countries - Isaiah40 (I like how they don't touch)
Countries - Tisha (I like how obvious and definitive and pretty they are)
Bonus Definition - Tisha (I like the visual representation instead of the words)
Compass - Isaiah40 (The compass looks cool)
Background - Isaiah40 (this is the toughest call. When they merge, dump the burn marks where the paper got creased.)

Dump the ship on Isaiah40's
Dump the valentines day dude playing the flute on Tisha's

So basically move Tisha's Countries and Bonus Definition to Isaiah40's background etc...

Great work both of you, but you can do better if you combine your efforts.

Postby VectorxMan on Sun Mar 06, 2011 1:42 am

I love how Tisha's map has the mini-map in the top right visually showing what each bonus is worth. That's what sold my vote.

Alright, I'm going to call the winner: Tisha at 63% of the votes and 115 votes total.

Isaiah40 came in with 67 votes at 37%.

Congrats to Tisha, expect further instructions in the near future. Thank you to Isaiah40 for an excellent entry and thank you to all who participated. All the entries were quite good and worth of CC, but there can be only one winner. Thank you again!

Tisha

Had I been around for the first vote, I would have gone for entry #7.

You can really tell how wet and cold it must be there, though it's a little hard to tell the bonus areas from each other. Nothing that couldn't easily be fixed. By comparison, I associate the winning map with a warm and gentle environment (something it clearly isn't).

It may not be gentle, but it is plenty warm enough at the right time of year. And although #7 had a very interesting texture and technique, I thought it was a little overboard on the number of lakes.

Congratulations, Tisha!
