Hi wizard of id, I was not trying to offend you by calling you by your first name as this was never my intention. I was just trying to make this as fun and relaxed as possible. I call myself gd Ed here but my real name is Eddie. It’s also a real shame you feel this way about the multiplayer competition as I think your contribution would be of great value. My sense of humour can be taken the wrong way at times and there are no extra points for PM’ing me (That was the joke!). On a more serious note there will not be a limitation on how many levels / map people can submit due to the reason I’m running this competition in the first place… to create more interest in MP, more levels / maps more interest.
While I was listening to what has been said by the forum and yourself; I thought it maybe time to revaluating the game rules. I really understand the frustrations with some of the limitation that GG has in multiplayer. I also share many of these too.
My intention is to... NOT change the rules each week, but only to create more of a buzz for MP.
It would be nice to see MP moving to the next level with more support. GG seems to be more focus towards FPS design and I believe a few customers may move on after trying GG out and reading the forum without giving it a chance. I also know there are many individuals on this forum who would like to see more features available to MP as there are in FPS. MP is a huge market and it would be a real shame for indie game creators moving to other game engines other than GG. We are already seeing this happening each month. I’m sure the developers at TGC will move in the direction of what people really want while still achieving their vision and goals.
I also understand there are many features that are more important to others than MP. I have notice a recurring debate on this fact in forum posts over the very short and limited time I have spent here. I think we all just want GG to do what it first set out to do.
I’m no real game designer and don’t have the years of experience so many of you have. But what I do see is a great community here who are very passionate about what they do. This can be from a game designers to a fellow like me who just wants to make a few games they have always dreamed about.
I have done okay over the years and just want a way to give a little back. I thought this would be a good start. This competition is not supported or backed by any corporation with sponsorship coming out of every orifice… just me.
So thanks again guys and I hope you will all join-in with what could be some great fun.
Eddie aka gd Ed.
