    I just got this news... and this makes me very sad to hear. When you have been in a community for a long time like Mapcore you meet some wonderful people who not only care but go the extra mile to make their time here enjoyable. Engy was one of those people; this year marks 12 years for me here at Mapcore and Engy was a part of that... You will be missed my friend! R.I.P Engy!

  10. Our team, Wafflestomp, is looking for artists to help create our small vanity project, Grim: Strange Case. Unpaid, but badass. About the Game: Grim is an over-the-top beat em up sidescroller set in 1890's London. You play as Grim, the demon gentleman, who has a lot of similarities with Jack the Ripper. You will be fight against a fellow demon chap, Dr. Jekyll. Jekyll is bent on bringing London to its knees, but Grim, who also resides in London, cannot permit this. In your pursuit of Jekyll you will encounter his minions, the poor common Londoners who have fallen victim to Jekyll's serum. About the Team: We are mostly industry professionals at a few different AAA companies. Regardless of where we work, we are badasses and we are looking for some more badasses. We are unique as far as small nonprofit indie teams go because we are mostly technical, with some artists. Instead of the usual, all artists teams. So far the team is comprised of 2 programmers, 1 designer, 1 level designer/artist, 1 UI artist, 1 animator, 1 rigger, and 3-4 semi committed artists. What we need: Committed artists. We need concept and 3d artists for both character and environment. You will need to be able to match the style target. Which lies somewhere between WoW and Fable...more towards Fable's texturing style. We're using UDK, so some familiarity with that is preferred, but not necessary Website Send a PM or email wafflestomp.grim at gmail.com . Obviously be able to show work.

  15. Some how I got into plat 2v2 ZZ FTW
  16. I think its pretty universal atleast those who I have talked would say TT is just a waste of a team LOL You really do not see a lot of 2v2 teams that are TT and win a lot. I mean all you needed was Zx to beat a TT team in the beg of the beta, as they had yet to nerf the crap out of roaches which where just raping T. I mean we saw numbers that showed that in most cases TT or T anything for that matter both in 1v1 and 2v2 were just getting raped. The other issue with T atleast for a period of time, not so much now was cost for econ. In looking at numbers you would see that in order for the T to really get his econ moving for the macro game it was costing them almost double the amount of minerals compared to Z and P. This is why we saw things like build times and unit costs cut for a lot of T units during the beta.
  17. This must be 1v1 because I still find terran to be rather lacking in 2v2. I mean TTvXX is almost always going to lose, and TXvsXX is going to struggle especially against protoss. I think the biggest issue with terran in anything but 1v1 is their builds are pretty much the same either way.. They wall themselves in which means they make some early econ sacrifice to build the wall, and they cannot really commit much in the way of a rush because they tend to be a little behind. BUUUT in 1v1 this works well. Of course. 2 v 2 is just a total CHEESE fest, the game is in no way balanced for anything other than 1 v 1. I do not think that is 100% true, I am sure they will address the terran lacking in anything but 1v1 at some point

  19. when they had medics in MP they were OP... I mean crazy OP with stimpack marauders were just killing everything. So they swapped them for the Medivac which was a little more spendy and did not require the tech reactor in the starport.
  20. Wow Achievements are not connected to Battle.net sadly :/ As for chat what about it don't you like ?
  21. While I may be seen as an arrogant ass on these here forums I just wanted to say thank you to my fellow mapcore friends. It has been 10+ years for some of us and if it were not for your constant pushing etc.. I would not be a part of this industry. So I honored you all with mention in the credits
  22. Its finally live worldwide... w00t w00t w00t w00t
  23. I am getting wet over the fact the game is done
