Just for reference -- JFK assassination map in the Melting Pot: Dealy Plaza

More on point: What about Vimy Ridge? That World War I battle holds a special place in Canadian military history and is commemorated on April 9. Sadly, I don't have the skills yet to plunge in and whip up a draft, at least, not one with the detail this deserves. I'm imagining something like Austerlitz, Waterloo, or the upcoming Battle of Stalingrad.

ahh.. i see this comp is over. I took about an hour during/after lunch today to come up with the battle of narvik. Looks interesting, and would make a good objective map. Unfortunately, i'm dropping it - but thought i would share the idea.

It was good to see a number of good entries to this contest; particularly for those CCers who may have been making their first foray into mapmaking territory! I was unsure how it would work out, but there are a couple of gems just waiting to shine! Due to a technical error (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it), it looks like the actual poll didn't get posted; so without further ado, it gives me great pleasure to announce the finalists of the April Gameplay Competition:

    Entry A: The Battle of Culloden
    Entry B: The Battle of Gallipolli
    Entry C: Convoy Battle ONS-5
    Entry D: WWII Norway: Operation Weserübung
    Entry E: Natura
    Entry F: Bay of Pigs
Full details of each submission are contained below:

Entry A: The Battle of Culloden
show

Entry B: The Battle of Gallipolli
show

Entry C: Convoy Battle ONS-5
show

Entry D: WWII Norway: Operation Weserübung
show

Entry E: Natura
show

Entry F: Bay of Pigs
show


In addition to the shortlisted finalists, congratulations to the following CC members for taking part:
rockandrull - Louisiana Purchase
The Bison King - Battle To Legalise

Without further ado, let the voting begin!

Man, this is too hard. Why can't we at least vote for our favorite two? Will there be a runoff for the top places? <hopeful innocent stare>

There's nothing that says that the non-winners can't be made outside the competition, you know...

I think there should be a revote with the top 3 choices from this one. 6 is a lot to pick from to declare a winner. Just the amount of votes from the least popular map are enough to make the 2nd most popular #1. I say this with no bias either. I voted for E

I don't think we want that, we're already halfway though May 8-[

Yeah, I was thinking about that... Maybe we could do some more development on the maps, while the vote is on, even because, it will be needed. Maybe some grafic improvements can help maps like bay of pigs and convoy battle. while that, gameplay improvements can help culloden, and some small adjustments shall help the other maps. Even because, it will be a lot easyer to advance those maps through the foundry if they lose this competition.

Another option is to develop all of them toghether and launch an April map Pack

I voted for The Battle of Culloden b/c I really like the challenge of the attack directions. I like maps that make you stop and think and get you out of a mindless state.
