    for some reason I am in a vicious mood at the moment, in case anyone hasn't noticed.

    Some of you may remember a guy who posted in the worldedit forums not too long ago, claiming that a map he made from scratch was ending as soon as he started playing it, and changing his name to "mapstealer".

    Well the guy clearly wasn't happy with the help we gave him, so he moved over to the battle.net forums and decided to post there.

    Big mistake.

    Read and laugh at how much he got flamed.

    Ho ho ho, we noticed alright;).

    Look at this thread:

    http://www.thehelper.net/forums/showthread.php?t=14636&highlight=mapstealer

    You can tell he stole the map, he didn't say anything after you ask him if he stole it.

    I can't beleive how oronic some people can be. It's like saying, "Ok, I have this map I MADE TOTALLY FROM SCRATCH, IT'S ALL MINE! Anyways, when I open it up, a message pops up that sais 'This map ahs been protected by the creator, stop stealing maps you bastard'. What to do? Did I say I made it totally from scratch?"

    Har har har.:)

    HAHAHAHA!!!!

    "Why do all the players say "mapstealer"?"

    WAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

    :D:D:D

    Man, if I ever find the creator of that map in the first place, I'll give him a cookie for having such a great idea in map protection.

    He must be an uber noob though. Why? Because LoaP is amazingly simple. A lot of their triggers are simple turn off and ons, if you know what I mean. I looked at an unprotected one and not only could the creator not spell, but he also didn't know how to balance. Oh well, he was at least a veteran in making triggers though, since this mapstealer clearly didn't even know how to program a trigger that says "Hello World" when you start the game.

    One cool thing about it though, how did the creator proram it to do that when someone tryed to open then play it? I'm thinking he used a method that fired when someone played it through Test Map, which couldbe a way when something specific happens when you play a map that way, hmmmmm...

    He could use a trigger like this:

    Code:
    Events:
         Map Initialization
    Conditions:
         <map creator> not equal to playing
    Actions:
         Pick every player and Defeat (picked player).

    Eh, but that'd kick them if the creator wasn't in the game. He clearly stated in the Battle.net forums that he used the test map function, and it worked if he didn't.

    Oh, I didn't read that forum. The link is broken. That complicates things then. If anybody knows, I'd be really interested to find out. :)

    Does anybody remember the title of the thread so I can search for it? The reason I think the link doesn't work is because it's to new posts, and the post must no longer be new.

    Heck, I looked for the name of the guy, hoping it was the same on this forum as well.
    No such luck.

    Me too, but maybe he changed it so we couldn't find him.

    Blizzard no longer archives the map forum posts for any longer than about 7-10 days. So if the last post in a thread was made more than 7-10 days ago then the thread has been scrapped.

    he was such a noobie
    Whenever you test a map your single player name automaticly changes to Worldedit then he made a trigger like this

    Event
    Map initalization

    Pick every player in all players and if picked player name equal to Worldedit then do actions:

    Change name of picked player to MAP STEALER
    Defeat picked player with the message NOOB MAP STEALER WHEN IM ACTUALLY THE NOOB WHO STOLE THIS MAP IN THE FIRST PLACE!!


    think i went a bit over the top there but its a simple trigger like that.

    Try it and look and it will do the same thing as 'he/she/tran' said it would.

    OMFG i would look at what i have made and see if there is a bug like that

    :Retard

    You should probably watch your language. I'm not a moderator, but if one sees this, you will most likely be warned, at least.

    Vexorian established somewhere else that it was his map protection program that creates this "event".

    Now, I feel kind of bad for him, because he might not necessarily have stolen it. For example, when I was beta testing a few days ago, I saved the map but forgot to update the thing in WEU, which caused the same thing to happen. Maybe he just made an honest mistake but didn't give enough information. Though I will admit, it really does sound like he stole it. :p

    Overall, this event is rather halarious. Even if it was his map, look at all of what has happened, personally I think just us judging him about him stealing a map is funny lol.
