    There's still 3 months left until the final deadline, and about 1 month until the first phase prizes/critiques are given out. If you are at all interested in participating there is still plenty of time left to get working on a map!

    If you're bored, and like medieval warfare, this is something you should look into. Having diversity in your portfolio does not hurt anything and all, and these contests are a great reason to give a stab at something new.

    Highly, highly recommend people jump in onto this.

    Oh damn, how did I not see this... though I'm going to blame myself for not being on here as much.

    Would love to join possibly next time, 1 weeks seems impossible to manage getting to know a new game and it's tools, especially with our 72hr map contest this weekend :p

    Good luck to all the entrants though!

    Hear ye, hear ye, oh noble Lords and Ladies of the Chivalry Community.

    The entry period to the Fortification Team Objective Map Contest has come to a close today. Over 45 maps featuring peasant killing, king slaying, town pillaging, ballista shooting, and all other sorts of medieval mayhem have been submitted for a chance to bring home the grand prize of $10,000 USD.

    45 maps. That is crazy! All of us here at Torn Banner are incredibly excited to see such an awesome turnout for the contest, and have really enjoyed seeing the progess that content creators have made in these few short months.

    Over the next few weeks, all the contenders will be in rotation on the custom map servers dedicated to the contest. Make sure to join a server in your region. There are specific testing times in which we encourage people to not only play these awesome maps, but to also give feedback to the map creators in their forum thread. We will be awarding the super rare peasant hat model to playtesters who post constructive criticism in the contestants feedback thread.

    [​IMG]

    Official testing times are:
    Wednesday: 3-6 PM EST
    Friday: 3-6 PM EST
    Sunday: 3-6 PM EST


    We will be testing and judging in the official custom content servers over the next few weeks anonymously with the community. During this time, you are allowed to make tweaks, adjustments, and updates to your map at your own risk. If the map isn't functional when play-tested, it will be disqualified from the contest.


    Best of luck to the contestants, and we’ll see you on the Fortification Map battlefields!


    Full list of entrants:

    P.S. All the lords and ladies who submitted a map for the contest by the deadline will receive a peasant hat as well (lens flares not included).

    I was too busy to enter this contest, did anyone else do it? It'd be awesome if someone did.

    On March 3rd, 2014, Torn Banner Studios announced the Fortification Map Contest— a competition awarding over $25,000 in prize money and a chance to have your map added to Chivalry: Medieval Warfare as official game content. The enthusiastic response from the modding community was inspiring. Over 45 maps were submitted over the course of the contest's four months, with many submissions exceeding expectations of creativity and polish. As a result, Torn Banner Studios has decided to award five winners a cash prize and an official spot in the game rather than the originally planned three.

    First Place:
    Castle Assault - evilmrfrank $10,000

    Second Place:
    King's Garden – Miene $5,000
    (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=241839409)

    Third Place:
    Cove – Nato $2,500
    (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=238299932)

    Fourth Place:
    Belmez – Hennio $1,500

    Fifth Place:
    Drunken Bazaar – StrangeTamer $1,250
    (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=251905709)



    All of us at Torn Banner were very impressed with the amount of quality maps that have been created. Although the contest may now be over, we’ve decided to leave it open ended for an indefinite period of time, so as not to let all that hard work, passion, and determination go to waste. From here on out, any Team Objective map that Torn Banner deems worthy of acceptance into the official release of Chivalry will be awarded with $1000. We will be posting the feedback from our judging playtests to help nudge map creators towards a bit more polish and balance in their levels. We will be looking to the community for help in providing feedback for map creators. We will keep the custom map servers to help aid in this effort. We may also consider adding maps that support other game modes in the future.
