    Today is the last day of registration for the competition. Tomorrow crating of maps starts officially. Unfortunately, the number of maps isn't too big... After that I'll open voting with downloading maps.
    So, good luck for the participants! Let's go.

    --The Fire Storm
    ---Size: 176 X 176
