I WANT OLIVE HELMET! I WANT THE TIMMY HELMET GAH I need to learn to forge proper maps!
[Locked] Helmet/Emblem for Forgers, Hell Yeah!
Yeah, I think it's fair too. As much as I would love to have those items, they deserve itcRu II Matt wrote:I personally believe that its completely fair for forgers to get an exlcusive helmet and emblem. They worked night and day to perfect a map. They deserve it. I do believe however that there should be a simpler way to have 343 notice your maps

I was disappointed that some in our community are trying to promote and advocate this idea that these forgers don't earn or deserve their maps to be chosen. That it's merely a matter of luck or youtube popularity, and that they don't deserve an exclusive helmet and emblem.
I wanted to advocate for the other side of this. I decided to make this tribute/thank you thread, and list all the Forgers that will be receiving this honor. That honor I speak of was made known in the last update, Forge On, You Crazy Cartographers, which literally says,Nothing wrong with that in my opinion. The amount of time and effort put into making the maps that are in matchmaking I can only imagine. These Forgers are, in my opinion, part of the backbone of our community and matchmaking. As a gesture of thanks I would like to take the time to list all the Forgers who currently have a map or mode in matchmaking.Quote:"... everyone who creates a map or mode that makes its way to Matchmaking will be granted the "Olive" helmet as a badge of honor and token of thanks."
This was no easy feat. I used this: Monitor's Bounty Arena Update as a list of all the maps currently in matchmaking, but finding who are the original author's of these maps was a bit of a chore. Let's just say I was not able to find them all, and if anyone sees a mistake or knows who the author is to a map please let me know, and I will update it.
Okay here goes!

Like I said finding the creator's of the maps was a little tricky which included going through all the past community updates, searching on the game itself, as well as here on Waypoint. I appreciate any corrections, or additions that anyone can help me out with.
Thank you to all those who have put effort into these maps. We have such a great variety of maps and modes to play on because of all your hard work. Here is one Halo community member who appreciates it!
Edit: Here are some of the forging communities mentioned in this thread for those who wish to try and connect to other forgers, and have some help in getting their maps out there:
