Wikimania was a guide-writing contest in which participants had to write a detailed map guide from among a selection of 6 maps. All the entries had to conform to the basic templates for Maps' Guides, which can be seen on any "Guide to playing in %MAP% effectively" page on the Wiki. The entry had to be written on the forum and submitted in a special topic created expressively for this purpose. The prizes included up to 100 000 crystals, and the best guides had a chance to be added to the official Wiki.
For the exact procedures, please read below:
- Pick one of the following maps — Cross, Courage, Highland, Fort Knox, Skyscrapers, or Siege;
- Write a complete and detailed guide on how to play effectively in the map you have chosen while following the official template (Examples: Guide to playing in Tribute effectively — Guide to playing in Barda effectively);
- Submit the guide in the designated forum topic.
Tips for writing your guide
- Images, videos, and screenshots are not necessary, but will definitely help your entry;
- Follow the official format as exemplified in any of the map guides on the wiki;
- Proofread your entry. There is no rush to get it finished so make sure you are completely happy with it;
- Your entry should be written professionally and contain little bias.
