Um, what if we have corrections? I mean, not of strategic opinions, but corrections of "factual" statements about a map presented in a guide. Where should we go with those?

I pm'd you and waited weeks for your response, n00blet, before taking it on. The revamp is already in final review.
And you knew that all pms from your account to me have been blocked for quite some time now. In any event, seems nothing needs to be done.

Nope, had no idea you were still carrying a grudge for me calling your behavior what it was in a game ages ago. :P

Why change my settings when I know as soon as I let your messages come through it'll just open the floodgates for more of this? I've been happy ignoring you inasmuch as my travels have taken me thus far.

Are there any maps that haven't been taken yet?

Yes, quite a few!

The project leaders listed a series of guides for us to start with, that wasn't even half the available maps on CC, and we're not done with those yet. Plus, there are still all the guides that we need to get to after we complete the initial list.

Here's a good strategy.

Foe any player who uses the clickable maps app for freestyles, it's a hugely unfair advantage and should be standard for everyone.
Till that happens..... Foe Foe Foe

You can pass along factual corrections to our Strategy Guide Leaders, listed in one of my previous posts.

And, the guide author would probably be interested to know. The author of each guide is listed in the respective guides. While only the leaders of the project can correct "locked" guides, they've been diligent at helping author volunteers.

AndyDufresne wrote:I agree that guides mostly likely are evolving. We simply wanted to make it so when new users/new-to-a-map users come to a Guide, they don't feel like they have to wade through every single post in a guide topic, as it expand and expands. The guides are really meant to be a starting point, or a jumping off point. No one guide can capture everything about a map, but it hopefully can give someone new/new-to-a-map users some starting insight.

How about we open up the Guides completed by the current project (the older guides are in the process of being REVAMPed so we'll wait for their official re-launch, I think), and after the first post, we place a second post as a 'divider.'

This would have a line or some other formatting method, with a small message that the Official Guide ends here, but there may be relevant strategy discussion outside the scope of the basic map guide located in the first post.


This has been instituted.

The Strategy Guide Contributors are happy to announce that the next batch of Official Strategy Guides from the Project have been released.



Many more are still to come---we do have 160+ maps you know!

Remember, if you'd like to join this project, help contribute your strategy or write a guide of your own, please contact one of our Strategy Guide Leaders: Master Fenrir, Lindax, Laughingcavalier, nagerous, ljex. Maybe you can earn yourself a General Contribution Medal!

Thanks to all those who have contributed their hard work so far, both in taking the initiative to write and format a Strategy Guide, but also all those helping critique, suggest, and comment on such Guides as well---and may it continue!
