It's time to vote! And this is the perfect place to do so.
Below is a table that you can copy and paste into your own post to give your scores. You may also write comments to motivate your thinking, but this is entirely optional.
Voting Closes: June 26th (sunday), at 20:00 UTC/GMT
[Countdown clock link]
Be sure to complete any unfinished votes, and check for mistakes. Thank you all for participating! The final result will be announced shortly (a few days perhaps) after the voting ends.
But first some copypasta:
There are 5 judging categories, each one has a different weight on the final score of the map.
The Gameplay and Balance categories account for 25% each, Aesthetics and Performance account for 20% each while Technical is 10%.
Gameplay (25% of final score) - Does the map have a good flow, is the layout intuitive? Are spawn timers correctly adjusted to create battles in the right areas? Is the map scaled properly, are the walk times between points of interest too long or short?
Balance (25%) - Do RED and BLU stand an even chance of winning the map? Is there a fair contest for each control point? Can each class hold their own in the map? Is any one overpowered or underpowered? Is there a good distribution of health and ammo kits?
Aesthetics (20%) - Is the map intricate and beautiful? Is there a high level of polish to the map? Does the map fit the style of TF2? Do the individual detailing choices make the map feel put together, or discordant? Is the environment visually pleasing?
Performance (20%) - How well the map is optimized. Framerate, filesize, etc.
Technical (10%) - Does the map have bad clipping? Does any spawns leave you stuck in the floor/wall? Does capture blocking work properly for all CPs?
Authors may NOT grade their own entries.
You should rate each category for the maps on a 1-10 point scale (where 10 is the highest score, and 1 the lowest). No 0.5 scores!
You must rate all categories for at least 8 asymmetrical AND 3 symmetrical entries (minimum) to have your votes counted in the final tally.
Rate as many entries as possible! Thank you.
