Re: [Competition] Maps Puzzle - Round 5 [Maps & Scoreboard]

Postby TaCktiX on Tue May 04, 2010 9:49 pm

I got 41 and 46 out of sheer dumb luck. I had given up browsing Game Finder and the like and decided as a last-ditch to look over the maps I was presently playing. A much much closer look at Map 41 unconvinced me it was some script text (several maps have it), and instead reminded me of San Marino's towers. Map 46 I was convinced for the longest time was a rail map, then I pulled up the second game of the present queue and stare at bAGHdad. So I got all of them, somehow. Perhaps my mistakes of Round 1 and 2 won't come back to haunt me after all.

Well, after looking at the answers to Round 5, I can't believe that I didn't get #46. It seems so obvious when you see it outlined there but, from all the posts, looks like a lot of people had trouble with it so there must have been something about it. Never can tell, I guess.

#41 on the other hand... that one was diabolical. I can still barely recognize it even with the outline!

thenobodies, just to clarify...

All the maps used in the map competition seem like they can be found in the browse maps section or through game finder where St. Patrick's and Pearl Harbor are listed as "closed." I don't have the pm anymore that you sent of the other 2-3 places we could look but all the maps there look like they are simply repeats of the browse map section.

My question is are we (or am I) missing maps listed outside of what I stated above. Thanks

It wasn't a PM,just a post.
You should go back through the thread of a couple of pages to find it. ;)
Anyway, i quote that part for simplicity:
