Mapping competition! Summer contest
« on: June 06, 2015, 09:08:08 AM »
Ever wanted to be the next Spaz or DKH of mapping? Ever wanted crowds of pilots screaming your name as you kill them in your map? Now you can!

I'm announcing a quarter-annual mapping competition. Anyone can join and can submit up to 3 maps to the competition. Submission deadline for this first contest will be July 1st. After that voting on favorite maps will be open. Voters can choose up to 3 maps to vote for. Top 5 maps will be subject to rotation ladder matches at the DCL for a week. A second poll will be held at the DCL forums by pilots who have played the maps in a competitive setting. After a week of playing and voting, the winner will be announced. Revel in fact that you're the top mapper of the competition as your name gets etched into the history of our game!

Currently, this contest will be focusing on D1 maps, but D2 maps and D2XXL maps will be accepted as well and judged just the same. This contest is currently FOR FUN, so have fun with it!. For tips on mapping out competitive grade levels, check out Drakona's post over at the DU forums. We also ask that mappers do NOT revise their maps once entered. Doing so may throw off the voting process as the version we download may be different than the one the mapper expects to be judged. If you plan on submitting more than one map, either submit them all at once our in separate posts if the maps aren't ready at the same time. Again, do NOT edit previous posts. Another thing, this contest is to stimulate new map creation so the map you submit must be less than 6 months old. Also, you can't submit maps for someone else. The author of the map must submit their own map. Best of luck and happy mapping! Here is the submission thread at the DCL forums.

The community. It'll be a poll vote for the top 5 entries. Voters can vote for 3 maps starting July 1st. From the top 5, pilots will play the maps in the DCL and vote for the top map.

The mapping contest poll was moved to the DBB forums for greater accessibility to the greater Descent community. Future contests will have the submission thread also moved to the DBB forums.
