The site-wide AoS project was just too unwieldly and impractical. This way, it's smooth. Besides we've done things like this before:

Concept art contest HERE became source material for Modelling contest HERE.

I like the idea of the map contest being to create an AoS map without the heroes, or with placeholder heroes (it wouldn't be considered a complete map, but it could still be judged on many factors, creativity, and ingenuity in game mechanics). This would segue nicely into everybody designing a hero for the winning map.

I don't really like that idea. The problem with doing it that way is that the success of the 3rd mapping contest is pivotal to whether the 4th hero contest succeeds or fails. What if no one submits a good AoS for it? There's still a winner, but like heck are we going to want to use it for the hero contest.

Besides, making an AoS for a contest is really, really, really lame. The time necessary to make one not suck is gigantic.

I would just create some (basic) rules for the contest something like:

Abilities:
-May not PauseUnits
-have to have 4 levels
-each hero can have a maximum of 2 passive abilities
-Ultimate should have an long cooldown, and may not be passive
-....


blah..
and then just pretty much ignore balancing

Oh, I agree; I just thought it was ironic and was answering his question.
