Q1 2014 is the eighth iteration of the long-standing Map of the Month contest, held as always by the DieHard Wolfers community. After a series of relatively underwhelming events, the contest was finally returning to its former glory and picking up more pace. Organized by AlumiuN, it featured 11 maps by eight different mappers. This edition was won by AlumiuN, who left in the dust the likes of Arielus (2nd place) and... Arielus once again, who teamed up with ack (under their old aliases: HellRaiser and StormBringer) to grab the third place.
The coordinator's task, other than preparing the editing package, was to accept submissions from mappers and post a thread with an appropriate poll. Only one submission per person was allowed until February 2008, when multiple map submissions per author were made possible. Once posted, every member of the community was allowed to cast their vote for three of their favorite maps. After a certain amount of time, the mappers' names were revealed, then the poll results published and everyone celebrated, rejoiced and engaged in insightful discussion.
