    Well I'll likely be mapping every now and then anyway so you're welcome to host anything that takes your fancy.

    less people posting = less competition, less competition = me win, more competition = me has to work to make more maps

    Just because you have more maps doesn't mean you're going to win. Not saying your maps are bad, I actually like some of them. It's just exactly what @SJD360 said:
    You just need to spend more time on your maps, if you're blasting out maps out of your anus every second and they're all shit (ha, get it?) they're not going to win (not talking about you, just an example hopefully that clears things up). But if you actually put heart and lots of time and effort into it; for example, testing, looking at some inspiring maps, putting detail and attention into everything, and much more, you can end up with a good map and maybe win. Now that's why I personally rate myself, so I know that I didn't put a lot of effort in and maybe I can go back and change my mistakes.

    I think you could really improve from this, hope this helps.

    If you notice one of my maps missing, I have removed it. This is usually because of my self pity, and disliking my own work.

    Ooh also, @wormy if you see one of my maps gone from my posts, could you please take it off your server? Sorry.

    @Croco-Dile Please tell me if one of those are one of my maps. I need the criticism so I can improve ::):

    Also; I agree with your argument, I would personally say 5 - 10, but otherwise I totally think this should be true. @wormy try this out. I mean imagine if everyone made 255 maps and they were all good enough to get on your server... yeah. Lol :X3:

    Also, a perfect example of Quality > Quantity is from @MadRaccoon and @--AmC-- , both of them made one map and they have pretty much already landed themselves in the winner's circle already. But as @Vexrak said, if you keep on plopping out a map every 5 minutes, it doesn't mean you're going to win; doesn't matter if you make 50 of them, if their quality is significantly below average then it'd just be a waste of time. My maps aren't that great, they have some level of quality but playability is rather low, despite there being seven (10 at a later date) of them.

    Just my opinion Lava, but I think --AmC--'s single map has crushed a majority of your maps, and even some of mine.

    Hey, @SJD360 my battle of Teraks map keeps breaking, like all the doors and ladders aren't spawning and the platforms break! I know this is totally the wrong post, but I took it down because of this and you seem like you know what you're doing with maps. Also you're online. So that's a plus ::D:

    @SJD360 ayy, no problem! Hopefully I can see one of your new awesome maps in a minute though!
    Also PM me if you wanna collaborate! I'm really good at making abandoned crap and you're excellent at terrains and mines. I think we could make an awesome map together. PM me if you're intrested!

    Also @wormy is there aloud to be collaboration entries by any chance? Probably not because that would require 2 keys (or more) then there could only be 3 (or less) winners.

    Ok guys I'll stop hinting at it. Sorry lol.

    more like 1, it was pretty boring to see all the new maps. Also cause lots of them are the already-seen floating island, or big void in the middle, or big void in the middle filled with water. Not to mention lots of them are pretty big. Usually iko's didn't have all those "huge maps". They were small, allowing fast paced games to happen.
