    pl_volcanic_a20

    Now let's get ready for the real deal.
    The final phase of the contest begins now.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hello. This thread is for casting votes. Please keep discussion about the contest in the main thread: http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=18555

    What is a preliminary vote?
    The goal of the preliminary vote is to reduce the number of competing entries to something more manageable. In short, the preliminary voting period will last for a maximum of 2 weeks, I will make it very clear if when I'm going to close this vote, don't worry. During this time the community is asked to play as many of the entries as they can, testing all of them is obviously preferable.
    During this period you are able to make a list of up to 10 entries that you feel are suited to go on to the final vote. The preliminary voting does not involve any scoring of the entries.

    I never heard about there being a preliminary vote!
    You're right, this is something I decided to do because I was overwhelmed by the amount of entries.
    27 contest entries, is a lot!

    What is the preliminary vote good for?
    To reduce the amount of competing entries down to a more manageable size. These contests are for the community, and largely dependent on the community as well. To keep things running smoothly the number of entries that go on to the full scrutiny of the final judging process has to be kept within a reasonable number.
    Testing and analyzing maps take a great deal of time, even more so when you have to put your playing experience into numbers and explanations. Sadly we don't have unlimited time or manpower (who is willing to spend infinite time on judging), so we have to make a compromise somewhere.

    How do I participate in this vote?
    Post in this very thread! As mentioned earlier, you make a post, and list up to 10 contest entry maps that you think should proceed to the final voting.
    However, take some time and play as many of the entries as you can before making your decision.
    The order you list the maps doesn't matter. You're not supposed to put a score on the maps in the preliminary voting, just create a simple list of your favorite entries.

    You can play the maps on our server at IP: 70.42.74.31:27015
    Join our steamgroup for notifications when we run scheduled tests.

    Does this mean only 10 maps will pass the preliminary?
    No, but at least 10 maps will pass the preliminary.

    Here is a list of all entries:
    pl_quagmire
    pl_rust_b2
    pl_vesper_b4

    i really hoped we'd have some sort of ratings, 1-10 or something. simply crossing maps off the list is rather extreme - the map is either rated great or turdible and often its clear that a map wont make top 10 even without playing it. oh well, at least its quick.

    All of the maps I have played so far.

    These are really good. I'm going to have to step it up next time now that I know what not to do.

    Feel disappointed to be eliminated before the main round, but it was to be expected. Hope the judges still rate all 27 maps and give constructive criticism after the initial contest. Anyway I've tried to play 26 of the maps and only played 25. Redhidingwoods crashes TF2 each time I try to play it. I have yet to play Sidetracked so I'll leave room on this list for it.

    Otherwise this is my list. I would have voted my own map so that I could at least have one vote but that seemed wrong and plausibly against the rules.

    It was a fun contest and I wish the final 10 the best of luck.
