And here it is, the moment we've all been waiting for. It's taken months, and we've looked at a lot of maps, but we have finally arrived at our winner. There were loads of great maps submitted, but this one stuck out the most. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you... Monsoon!
Monsoon is a symmetrical map set in an urban environment (ya know, as urban as it gets in outer space with asteroids whizzing past). The map is somehwat reminiscent of Longbow, but with a more pronounced bend and some more verticality. Each base takes advantage of a split level design, keeping players on their toes while playing defense and giving attackers interesting options. Tha map also sports some Avalanche-style mancannons which make for some hilarious vehicle shenanigans. Good job PA1NTS!
I'd like to take this opportunity to once again thank everyone who participated in this contest, whether by judging, organizing, or submitting maps. It didn't go quite as smoothly as last time, but in the end the best maps shone through the masses. These contests are a true excersize of interaction between different community groups, with involvement from 343industries.org, The Halo Forge Epidemic, HaloCustoms and others. I look forward to doing this again sometime. Below are listed the primary judges of this contest.
The Fated Fire
The Psycho Duck
I can't tell you how excited I am to be announcing the other runner-up from the Meet Your Maker 6v6 Dominion Forge Contest. I am so excited that I just had a bit of an, err, accident, which has resulted in my fingers getting rather sticky (Okay, that's pretty gross Duck). But seriously, I spilled some coffee while writing this and my fingers got sorta sticky from it, not sure what dastardly deeds you guys were picturing. Anyways, it is my pleasure to announce to you that Sticky Fingers by Xinshu is our first runner-up!
Sticky Fingers is an asymmetrical dominion map set among the debris of a collapsed orbital elevator. The map provides for some interesting and organic geometry which makes for some exciting vehicle action as well as some useful callouts. Sticky Fingers supports a wraith at Bravo base as well as rocket hogs at Alpha and Charlie. Each base also provides several unique offensive and defensive options, making Sticky Fingers a blast to play. Let's hear it for Xinshu!
For those of you who have been paying some attention to good old Bungie recently, you may already know about this. None the less, this is BIG NEWS!
Bungie has confirmed the official release date for their long awaited game, Destiny. The official date has been set for September 9th, 2014. Mark your calenders everyone, because this is a release that you won't want to miss!
Also announced, the Destiny Beta is going to kick off during the summer of 2014 as follows, and it will be available first on Playstation 3 and Playstation 4. Sorry guys, bad news for us Microsoft fanboys.
It's been a while since most of you have heard anything from this contest. Submissions have been closed for almost two months, and we apologize for the lengthy judging process. There were a few hiccups in our planning as well as some time conflicts between the judges. However, we were committed to showing off the best of the best in terms of Dominion maps in Halo 4 and we are finally going to be doing that over the next few days. Without further ado, I present to you Typhoon by DUN3Z, the third place winner of this contest.
Typhoon is a linear-style Dominion map centered around a shipwreck which houses the Bravo base. The map supports loads of great offensive and defensive options to players, all housed within a fairly simple and easy to understand layout. The map also supports a Mantis at Bravo base which makes for an exciting twist. All in all, Typhoon provides for an exciting and balanced Dominion experience that is fairly easy to pick up and play. Congratulations to the map's creator, DUN3Z!
You may have noticed that there are several orange fellows running around HaloCustoms.com. These sentinels guard us against the evil forces of spam and corruption that often threaten peaceful forums around the interwebz. But what do these Spam Guardians do in their spare time? Are they people too? How handsome are they? What kind of beer do they drink? You've already heard from Dax, Bigstack, Tedium, Insane Fiddy-Fo, and Fuzzle. Who will be the next victim of the interrogation room? Over the next week, vote for who you want to question next!
