We had a lot of fun seeing what you guys came up with and once again we're really impressed. People broke out everything from Paint to 3D rendering software. Great job guys.

Vote Here

Now it's time to vote and send 3 people to this year's Blizzcon. But we're going to sweeten the deal for people who can't go or didn't submit an arena design by giving everyone who votes for one of the winning arenas a chance to win a Blizzard Authenticator. After the polls close we'll randomly choose 5 people who voted for one of the winners to give Authenticators.

So go vote! All votes must be in by Sunday, June 14th at 5 PM EST.

If you missed the competition, you can check out the original thread with all its banter here.

wow, there are definitely 4-5 maps I would seriously consider for arena play

my pick was the wintergrasp inner room, simple, yet astonishingly new

There were definitely some good ones in there. I liked ruins of zul'tek, but that seemed more like a battleground being that large. Ahn'kahet arena was well done too. It was simple and had good textures.

But I went with

It seemed the most balanced since it was a sort of blade's edge/nagrand hybrid.

I definitely like the idea of some of them, haven't gotten through them all yet, but it seems like some of them could be really gay to play on tbh. Things like the one that has an elevator in the middle could really screw your team over if someone got a ride on that and you are stuck below :\

Definitely going to take a further look at them though.

I can honestly do nothing but laugh at you if you think that mages are super strong on the highest level of play.

Pirate ship will walls instead of falling to deathness (invis walls?)

I would never vote for any of the RNG arenas, but the spider kingdom one with the vid looked ok, but the prob is when you get knocked to the bottom by an ele shaman and get nuked all the way back up then what.

Agreed, I stood clear from all the "you get a dot/hot, knocked, kicked, eaten by shark" shit.

I really liked the idea of the Pirate arena, it seemed pretty balanced on a first glance, the only thing they shouldn't do is add certain death if you fall in the water. May be somehow eject the guy up on the boats and take some of his HP as a punishment for not watching where he walks!

Oh, and while at it - disable the possible exploits with Shamans and Druids knocking you back, somehow!

eaten by shark shit.

Almost got my vote!

I voted for a static map in the end tho, sick of "Inc heal nvm waterfall spawned" such things.

don't like the pirate one or the one with the youtube video because they're too open. but i'm sure they'll get a lot of votes because they're visually impressive.
