Welcome to the second annual map awards.

A very productive year in the foundry. 20 maps have been produced played on and entered into this years awards. With the two held over from lasts years competition, we have 22 maps to judge this year.


Now it is time to pay tribute to the map makers for all their hard work and decide who is the best of the best.Image

Here are the categories in which you can vote. You can vote in all categories or none at all.
Image

How you vote is so simple, a baby can do it. Click on any of the wood banners and you will be whisked away to a magical site to post your answers. ;)

Image
Best map made for 4 players or less.

Image
Which has the best one versus one play?

Image
Maps made for 8 players. More the merrier for these bad boys.

Image
Something different for those of you that play doubles, triples or even quads.

Image
The super model of maps.

Image
Which map has the best gameplay.

Image
The map a two year old can play on.

Image
The most original idea in graphics or gameplay.

Image
New maps made by new map makers. But who has made the best.

Image
Which map makes the others shrink in fear.

Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image
For every map that wins in each of the categories, a shiny new General Achievement medal will be awarded to the map maker. But that is not all, six months premium will be given to the map maker that wins the Best of 2012 category. 2nd and 3rd places will also get additional 3 months of premium.

Rorke's Drift for best game play.

It might help if you listed the maps of 2012.

Why did Baltic Crusades miss the cut--was it released too late in the year or something? That would have been my vote for map of the year but guess I'll have to wait until 2014. Also is there no way to see the results of the poll on that site and if so when can we see any results?

Baltic Crusades was released too late for this year. I wanted each map to have some proper play time. Next year, I am thinking of doing it at the end of Jan so all maps get put into the correct year. As for the results, I will get screen grabs and post them with the results at the end. I will disable the links on the 15th so no more voting. Results will be posted here in the foundry and the dispatch on the 16th.
