Just as standard, before we start id really like to give a big congratulations to our TLMC#14 finalists this time around! Even when we now are going through changes on the WCS/ESL side of things and personally I don't know when those maps will start on rotation, it will be most interesting seeing several of those being played 👀
That out of the way, this thread is mostly dedicated to those that didn't made it to the finals to ask questions about their maps.
Just like always, for the inpatient souls it is very much recommended to first check out previous "Mapping Guidelines" and the TLMC8, 9, 10 & 12 feedback threads before you submit your questions, as I don't have much time and I have to use it where counts.
- Thoughts on Mapping and TLMC#2
- Plexa's Thoughts on TLMC#4
- TLMC#7 Feedback Thread
- TLMC#8 Feedback Thread
- TLMC#9 Feedback Thread
- TLMC#10 Feedback Thread
- TLMC#12 Finalists Feedback Thread
- TLMC#12 General Feedback Thread
As an extra note there is my youtube channel where I have been uploading Mapmaking feedback videos for finalists and non-finalists alike, it is highly recommended for y'all to peruse around. This time around there were no videos for the finalists like on TLMC#12, but we do have the Pre-Judging feedback stream right there. And remember, just because we might have not gone over *your specific map*, it doesn't mean that your map might not share issues which were covered there, so be sure to review it!
Worthy mention, Nathanias has made his Reviewing TLMC#14 Finalists freely available, which is an excellent resource on understanding maps from his perspective:
Before We Begin
For time reasons, all mappers can ask feedback for 2 maps, id like to give as much feedback as possible, but it is simply not possible for me to cover all maps, in the same manner, avoid asking "what's wrong with map X", instead focus on what areas you believe are problematic, this way we will save time and not need to spend +3 months on the Feedback Thread again -.-;
Submit your questions on the following fashion:
- Map Name
- Category the map was submitted to
- Map Overview
- Specific questions about your map
Just like on TLMC#12 might be videos this time around, there might not! No promises, only hopes and dreams. And in the same fashion, other judges might also join, or might not, it depends on their own personal timeframes.
