A map, dedicated to Svartmes, who won my last contest!

So, for contest #2!

Be the first to reply to this thread with a map name!*
You must have beaten this map.
Obviously, the last winner cannot win again. Give someone else a chance :)

Thanks for the map! Another great one by you and I liked it a lot. I will be replaying it for a better time (I have some ideas).

I rate it...come on now, I have to give it 10/10! :)

The nap takers are here to... welp.

There is definitely an easy side and a worst side. My time was halved when I found the Easy side.

Yes there is. :)

I did my best to make this map in a way that can be played multiples times with multiple different strategies :D

Anyone go the route of using the totems?

I used the totems. I've managed to get the time down to 13:06 now but there's definitely room for improvement. A sub 10:00 time should be possible. I hope D0m0nik gives it a try and beats me just to give me some motivation to go for it :)

I'm a bit rusty as not been playing this game but randomly saw this and couldn't resist the challenge. got all totems charged by the 9min mark and thought Id smashed it but central emitter still going plus pick ups to collect. Ticked them off in 13 mins but no completion! Now at 17 min with 100% unmired land, all mines captured etc but still no completion. Am I missing something? As I said I am a bit rusty  :-[

That's a little odd. I don't know why it would do that.

Did you mire all remaining land to blue? The mission objective is to mire 99.5%

Still stuck at 99%, onnis everywhere, been running for 5 mins, moved the omnis around but no cigar! I hate the mire win condition for exactly this reason, finding that last 0.5% is the most frustrating thing in any game I have ever played!

In order to capture and hols some of the mines I used rock burner underneath, wonder if that has caused the problem. Cannons enabled for the omnis though and they are not targeting anything  :o :-[
