    Community Service is a real Wheel of Fortune 🎰 that needs to be rebalanced.
    Minefield - gosh, turn on the lights! 🤣 Increased contrast would help here.

    All other maps are alright, quite fun so far!

    The Tunnel is one of the best strategic maps created in a long time. Kudos to whoever made it. 

    Minefield needs to be removed entirely.

    Community Service would be fine with a tweak to the spawn wave at the beginning I suppose.

    Supply Run, Breach, are easily passed.

    Search the area for Connie is missing Connie? I've been searching all over for her the entire week and I still haven't found her.
    Maybe she was eaten by walkers🤷 
    I would love to see Connie as a playable character with that slingshot

    I love what a morning star without razor can do on Supply Run. I feel... Vindicated. Somehow I was due this one gift, except the nightmare stuff which I haven't seen yet. I imagine tanks will ruin what is otherwise a harmony of mathematical precision. It's almost like this is part of make mele great again.

    Community needs the spawns reworked. They literally spawn around the team on the left side, walling them off from each other. That on it's own is 100% wtf.

    Wouldn't it be more thematic if the walkers spawned INSIDE the building ruins? That's what we're SUPPOSED to be clearing?

    Instead the spawn is like a bunch of evil death eaters that Voldemort spelled their way right next to us just to ruin our plans. Wrong game ng. Wrong game.

    I changed my opinion. It's nice to play new maps and most of them are really ok.
    But community should be balanced soon. Then it's gonna be a nice challenge.

    Only a map to kill a challenge week.
    For sure, to me, community service really needs a balance.
    For instance, it's a scam. Unfair, unplayable.
    Using tools in this kind of map, so early overall, isn't strategic, neither tactical. Uninterstesting.

    Once we had a day or two to figure out the strategies people often warm up to these new challenges. Community Service needs to limit the initial spawns though, so it's never like here. Minefield needs better visibility for the Mines too it seems, but I personally haven't had that much issues with this one.

    I liked having maps that, in part, favor mele at lower levels. I'm happy to explain why some of them did if that would help ng. We should have more map sets that are more unique/diverse like this. 

    Minefield is very satisfying when I can see what's going on.

    I see a lot of complaining, but we have yet another 100+ players at max. Has anyone managed to complete it without tools?

    I know at least one person who managed without tools. 
    I managed to complete it myself, with usual tool usage. I definitely used a lot more gold however…

    I've been watching the complaining. It falls into several categories.

    1) day 1 complainers dealing with new stuff who then sorta figure it out

    2) challenge killers or very active social players who get real quiet real fast once they figure it out, busily racing to finish (who will win!?)

    3) day 5 players who still haven't fully figured it out but maybe others in their guild have (mostly) and the knowledge will trickle to them more slowly than to other players/guilds who are plugged into the player network which solves this stuff
    Some players whine because they feel entitled to great rewards from SPY/SMY with little thought or effort. They complain the challenge is too easy or that SPY/SMY is ruining the game. And when a challenge comes along with even a speed bump for the SPY/SMY machine, now they complain about how wrong the challenge is. I strongly encourage ng to ignore all of this bullshit.

    We deserve more difficult challenges at higher levels. We deserve SPY/SMY to have it's supremacy challenged. We deserve challenge maps that are true puzzles. And most of all we deserve to have anything at all which disrupts the established order.

    This mapset was close to perfect. Considering how NG does with stuff the first time, I'm actually surprised and even a tiny bit impressed.

    There were some good maps here I felt, the initial frustrations were mostly down to minefield but once I figured out that the mines didn't move and hugging the bottom of the map was safe those feelings disappeared. 

    Community service the one PoS map really, none of the others were too troubling for me with the usual SMY/SPY teams and that was just down to the gold/tool sapping starting spawns. It was the only map I needed tools for because I just couldn't be bothered retrying so was happy to just chuck a flare and be done with it :lol:. I agree, I suspect for many the initial complaints were that players didn't instantly know how to 3* the map without thinking.

    You know what, I don't even think Community service is that bad. Sure if you want to 3 star it you'll probably have to throw a tool or reset a bunch of times for a perfect spawn. However, the map can very easily be beaten even if you have to let someone get into a struggle. I actually kind of miss going into struggles, and higher levels being a battle to get through. However, it seems like most of us have been spoiled into thinking we should be able to 3 star everything. By the way, put Rosita in the third spot in Community Service and she can make her way over to join Sasha/Yumiko without any tools.

    Right. It's not that bad. Cause fatty spawns right on top of you. Uh huh...

    No. I'm not in a server of another group I would think of as a competitor. I'm in servers with other groups I think of as part of our discord community. And I happily chime into discussions with helpful comments when it comes to development or badging or new challenge map strategies. 

    And if my group did draw theirs for gw, I wouldn't check their server for anything. Besides, permissions can prevent me from seeing anything they would want to be kept private. Discord is awesome for guilds and guild families. And the community discord is growing faster now than it used to.

    No it's just an opportunity for me to plug the community discord server, yet again, in a thread which sees a lot of views.

    I hate it
    Now that it's almost over, we can resume it's been a quite tough but in the end very playable challenge. Far more than 100 players finished with 4,878. Two guilds (so far) made maximum scores. It can't have been this bad then. :smile:

    I still don't like the randomness and the need of retries. After all "Search the Area" was the biggest pain in the ass with being so large and taking much time. And Minefield became my favorite map. Mines are too dark, but it was fun to pass at least this map without Yumiko in the team.

    Good to finally see there are people that want harder challenges .
    Not sure the current can be called hard though - other than community service which you only actually need a good starting spawn , all the other was pretty easy but still interesting .
    If you had trouble in this challenge set, probably your gameplay has troubles and you need to get better. 
    Really wonder how people not see how awful easy game become when we have like 200+ perfect score ties in like 2 days 😂
    Get us some harder stuff NG please , you are heading at a good  direction with challenges like this .

    Hey OP, any chance you could edit your title to include "Season 11 challenge"?
