Alright, so we have competitions for almost everything on World of Tanks. But I was going through the forums and seen a thread called "Modualar Map" or something like that, and as I was reading it I had an idea. WG could have a competition where players will creatively and in great detail desgine a map and the person who wins 1st place will have that map placed into the game. See with this idea we can have a not just a new map, but a new unique map desgined by a player. Now we all know that some players hate specific vehicles but I believe that the person who desgines the best map will be able to do it where all vehicle type is balanced, of which would be chosen by WG. (Suggestion below: A player suggested that WG chooses the best top 5 or 10 maps and the community chooses the winner.)

But again this is just a simple suggestion/idea. I think it would be a great competition to have. And players don't need expensive programs or what-not to make a map, they can do something as simple as pencle and paper sketch. But what do you guys think though about this idea?

Oh yea of course. But since I don't really work for WG I can't really decided everything about the Idea for them. I mean I don't really know how they work or operate. So I just can't say WG should do this and that with the idea if they don't work that way.

Cool idea. Main problem with doing a traditional creative contest could be that arty haters might vote for a map that's terrible for arty. Or some other groups of players who prefer a type of tank might vote for something that gives them an advantage. If that makes any sense.......

What if WG took the entries, cut down the list to a few nominees (between 5-10) as chosen by WG, and have the community vote on their nominees?

I don't understand where you got the notion that I said in my main topic that the community chooses the best map. No, I think that is a horrible idea really. I was trying to make the notion that WG choses the best map, or at least your idea as well.  But I will go in to my main topic and clarify it incase others get confused as well.

Even though that was ment as a joke it does make sense. Map Makes You= The map makes you play the way it is desgined sorta forms you in the sense of combat. Rather then you making the map play how you want it to be, sorta in your favor.

Why bother with a contest?  WG could just release an API to allow users to create maps, and mod them in so they could be used in a training room available to the designer.  Users could eventually submit maps to WG for them to review and add to the game... I'd be willing to bet we could see 10 new maps at each patch if they did that (of course we'd probably have them getting pulled the next patch for rebalancing).
