How to rate map difficulty?
« on: April 03, 2014, 12:42:38 am »
I'm not entirely sure, as I'm new.  ???

Is there a guide somewhere to help with this? I want to know if 1) my maps are too easy, 2) how hard people like maps, and 3) how to make hard maps but still be able to beat them myself, as I am a newbie :/.

Help is appreciated, thanks!

Play the map, then exit or win, go back to the map screen, and there should be a rating thing under restart map.

But keep in mind, you should not rate a map '0' just because you couldn't finish it.

You should be more careful in your response. This is in the CW1 section. CW1 allowed the map maker to state a difficulty level in maps before the map was uploaded.

As for the OP: Just rate it relative to your skill.

Oh, wow. I can't believe I didn't see that. Sorry!

? Why would I rate my own map 0? Lol...um this is CW1. Yeah.

@Karsten, okay thanks ^_^

Just hope others won't rate 1 because they're too easy, as time goes by I'll improve my own skill so I can feel more confident about making hard maps. I did beat a Thor-enabled map without thor :D it was rather easy though.
