I vote no.
Reason? Every feature of a map plays into the strategy to use. Cliffs rocks, beacons, ect, all play a role. Even when rushing, these are still all factors.

I would play it to see what objectives might be in, but i agree with the post above me. Playing a map that is not finished is not fun cause you miss alot.
Extinction is just the beginning.

Check this out, it rocks

Depends how much is missing I suppose.
If the map itself was playable just like any other, I suppose I would play it. (If I liked the map that is)

Voted yes.

Guys, I'm talking about incomplete transitions and tiles that don't necessarily match up, not huge chunks of blue space on the map...

I suppose I'd play it... I've tried making maps and the tiles only match half of one percent of the time anyway. Besides a new map is welcome when a game has been around this long.

The transition tiles don't have to be perfect (Hell, Serria's arn't), just CLOSE. If you've achieved that, then I'd play it.

The tiles do not have to be perfect, but i don't like playing when all tiles are the same - it just annoys the crap out of me!

Well, judging from the results I should hold off on releasing some missions for testing until after I tidy up the maps a bit...

Guess we're stuck with the Hooville clone for MT2 testing!
