    I have no idea. I mean, I kind of get how I could do it that way, but I was doing it the hardest possible way.

    I was in the depths of sleep deprivation at that point, that's my only excuse.

    It would be cool if the people who participated in the 72 hour contest could also make a reply about their experiments (if they tried any) in this thread:
    http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=21814

    Not necessarily now, maybe it might be better to play the maps more through to the end so we really know how they worked out, but sometime.

    Paraphrasing Elon Musk from here; it's important that people try things that are different and more importantly better, but also it's important to create an environment where that sort of thinking is encouraged, and also one where failure is okay. In a lot of cases trying something new will fail, but if every time someone came up with a new map idea it had to be successful then people won't want to come up with new ideas.

    Each map has about 1-3 minutes of brief discussion. It's all brief so not much sugar coating, I also probably missed a map or two so I appologise for that. I'll probably do more detailed ones for each of the stage 2 ones

    This seems like a really awkward time for me to bring this up, but shouldn't the winners of all three places of the contest get Map Maker's Medallions? According to its wiki article it's usually given to "the top three placing winners of all major TF2Maps.net contests".

    I'm probably just making a fuss out of nothing tbh but I thought I'd bring it up since it seemed kinda weird to me.

    Key word in there, major, 72 hour contests as far as I know have never been considered to be major.

    72 hr contests aren't major, they are classified as minor.

    Sorry.

    You're about 10 months late.

    Come back in a few weeks for the announcement of the next one.

    I'm going to lock this thread so it won't be confused with the current jam. You can join the discussion about that here.
