    Alright folks, it's coming to that time of the year again, the time when everyone is asking, "What would you do for a Klondike bar?"

    Me? I'd host a 72hr mapping contest again for a Klondike bar. That's what I'd do.

    So if you could answer these questions and discuss your thoughts on things, that would be wonderful.

    What MONTH is the best one for this contest to occur?
    Do you want to restrict it to a certain gamemode (ie, all KoTH or All 5CP)
    Would you want to use rules from the previous contest? (seen below)
    If not, what rules would you suggest?
    Would you be interested in Streaming your work? (If yes, how long per day?)
    What would YOU do for a Klondike Bar?

    Previous contest Rules (72hr contest #2)

    You can discuss/ask questions here.

    I'm in.

    I'm in for limiting it to a koth or 3cp map, not that i have anything against people attempting tc or payloads, but its only 72 hours...

    i'd put the contest a few weeks after the end of the PL contest, to give mappers some breathing space.

    I would prefer not having the contest in early june. Because I'm going to Spain! \o/

    17th-20th may doesn't work for me either! That's all I had to say!

    I'm a sucker for 72hr events.

    What MONTH is the best one for this contest to occur?
    Sometime in June or after. Summer and what not.

    Do you want to restrict it to a certain gamemode (ie, all KoTH or All 5CP)
    Last year was whatever, wasn't it? I can't remember.
    I think we should allow people to make whatever they want, this is just for fun after all.

    Unless people actually expect to win something.. CTF? KotH is always getting made in these type of events so eh.

    Would you want to use rules from the previous contest? (seen below)
    They're fine.

    Would you be interested in Streaming your work? (If yes, how long per day?)
    Yeah, but I don't think anyone feels like watching me work.

    What would YOU do for a Klondike Bar?
    Walk to the store and pay for it.
    I'm kidding Klondike Bars are low tier.

    What MONTH is the best one for this contest to occur?
    June works well for me.
    Do you want to restrict it to a certain gamemode (ie, all KoTH or All 5CP)
    No. I would like it to only be standard-ish gamemodes, though. (But that doesn't rule out 7cp/4-Point A/D).
    Would you want to use rules from the previous contest? (seen below)
    Rules seem fine.
    Would you be interested in Streaming your work? (If yes, how long per day?)
    Yes. I do stream myself mapping sometimes. If I'm working on this contest... the entire time I'm mapping I would stream.
    What would YOU do for a Klondike Bar?
    Pay $3.49.

    Challenge Accepted.

    What MONTH is the best one for this contest to occur?
    May might be a bit busy. June or later would be preferable.
    Do you want to restrict it to a certain gamemode (ie, all KoTH or All 5CP)
    No. That would make me the opposite of aroused.
    Would you want to use rules from the previous contest? (seen below)
    Having a time limit seems unreasonable for a 72hr contest.
    Would you be interested in Streaming your work? (If yes, how long per day?)
    I don't think I would stream it, but I would definitely record it and then upload it.
    What would YOU do for a Klondike Bar?
    I would ransack a Congolese orphanage for pennies and then pay a homeless meth addict to rob a store and bring me all of the klondike bars in stock.

    I would love it being in June sometime, mid-year break and all. I don't think you need to restrict it to a certain game mode. The previous rules are fine.

    I would also love to stream my work, if anyone wanted to watch it. Happily for the entire time I worked, which would hopefully be most of the day.

    It seems a bit silly calling these 72 hour contests as unofficial, especially if they are regular occurances and administrated by our admins. In what regards is it unofficial? I only ask because i don't see any reason why it couldn't be.

    P.S. is there actually a klondite bar for a prize?

    I think its unofficial because it is more/less kind of "jokish" contest, and really good quality maps don't come out of it.


    Yes. Whoever takes first place, I will mail them ice cream money, whatever the price a klondike bar (or local equivilent) is. (unless it costs 30 dollars to send 3 bucks international. Not sure how it works)

    if we're going to have a lot of streams we probably should post around the tf2 communities to let them know this is happening. if we get enough ppl on the streams maybe we'll be able to make a buck or 2

    Well I wouldn't say that. For 72 hours there's some really great things that are made. Fully textured, lit, and working.

    I kinda see where Grazr is coming from. Just because 72hr contests don't feel as huge as the 'official' ones, like the Dynamic Payload, that doesn't make it unofficial. :p

    I mean, I don't see why we couldn't count it as an official contest

    And with that, the mappers medal would be a suitable prize.


    @Fubar, yea, I was hoping that maybe there would be a way to hook all the live streams up onto one page so people can watch them as they wish. And yea, when an official date is set up, I'll post a thing about it in all the major news channels.



    How do we want to do voting? Something like last years?

    why even bother voting, it's always the shittiest part of the contest.
    the contest would be better off without it

    Official is not equal to major. We've had minor and major contests since we began, and the little ones were always known to be for the fun more than prizes.
