  1. Hi everyone, as some of you may know already, I've been working along with players from all regions on a custom ruleset that aims to improve the current competitive ruleset's gameplay and weapon balance. The changes proposed in this ruleset have been thoroughly tested and only aim to refine the current gameplay, nothing is game breaking, it isn't a revolution. The changes are most noticeable at a higher level of play, many people that played games or spectated have said that they couldn't notice a major difference. These changes were designed so they could be seamlessly implemented into the current competitive ruleset. Full detailed explanation : http://customruleset.easyga.me/ruleset.html Gameplay Philosophy : http://customruleset.easyga.me/ruleset.html#Gameplay Complete changelog : http://customruleset.easyga.me/ruleset.html#Changelog How to play on the ruleset (servers in all regions) : http://customruleset.easyga.me/ruleset.html#Playing Tournaments in all Regions have been hosted to showcase the changes in the ruleset. VODs, replays and info in the specified forum threads : Europe North America Japan Australia If you wish (or not) to see the changes proposed in this ruleset applied in the competitive, Post below using the form template : Region : EU/NA/JP/AU Highest reached rank in Matchmaking : Prime Overlord/Overlord/Diamond/Platinium/Gold/Silver/Bronze Have you played games on the custom ruleset : Yes/No Have you watched games played on the custom ruleset : Yes/No Do you wish to see the changes proposed by the custom ruleset implemented into the current competitive ruleset ? : Yes/No Why ?

  15. A good way to not discourage mappers would maybe be to not endorse publicly mappers or maps that only focus on artwork. As a competitive player, there is nothing more infuriating than seing the devs adding maps officially to the map pool just because it has pretty meshes and the mapper has apparently spent alot of time on it. Sanctum was never play tested for a long period, was never in any tournament but it got added straight away just because it was a promeus map and looked "good". If I was a serious mapper that wanted to produce a good 1v1 map, I'd be pretty pissed about maps being arbitrarily added in the mm map pool and could just take the easy route on by working on art rather than proposing very solid gameplay in my map. Map making is not about the facade, if your map looks good but plays badly, it'll maybe be added in the match making pool if you make it shiny enough so the devs notice, it won't be however in any serious tournament or competition. If your map is good, it'll get played, if it isn't it won't, it's as simple as that, people still wonder why The Catalyst is the most played map in match making (check the replays), very simple explanation, it's the most balanced map currently in the game, people might not agree with that statement but it's the objective truth. Nobody is forcing people to play The Catalyst more than 421, certainely not the 10 people that make up the "top players". Shoving new maps down our throat in the mm competitive pool without a vetting process is not the right way to get them approved and is counter productive for the mapper. Also, I do agree that new maps can make it easier for some players to catch up, you'll have to invest alot of time anyways if you want to get to the top, regardless of the maps currently being played, it's not like it makes a difference, don't be delluded into thinking that new maps will magically make you catch up faster or even get to the top, it takes alot more than new maps being played. tldr : don't add maps just because they look pretty or because it's made by this mapper. Work on gameplay, not art. Don't shove maps down our throats.
