    Ok so there are around 90 maps for the CTF contest in development (crazy huh?) and we're all wondering how many of them will make it. Well, you can get a chance to win a month's access to the VIP lounge + all the other cool features donation gets you. Courtesy of me.

    I'm sure you all know how a sweepstake works, each places a bet on a particular number (one user per number) then once the contest deadline hits and the number of maps submitted to the preliminary round of judging is known, the user who guessed the right number wins.

    EDIT: just come to my attention that the US and UK have a different idea of what a sweepstake is. From what wikipedia suggests this would be the UK version of a sweep, closer to a lottery than a competition.

    EDIT2: once your name is put into this list, your number is final, no swapping.

    EDIT3: since Penguin is ultra-dumdum today I'll clarify: Each number here represents the final quantity of maps that get submitted to the preliminary round of judging once the contest deadline hits. You're picking the number of maps you think will reach that stage without being abandoned by their author.

    I'd say 18. Also, what happens if nobody wins? Closest without going over?

    If no one hits the exact number it will go to whoever had the closest bet, however I'm sure there are 100 people here willing to pick a number.

    For those of you who quite didn't get it and submitted a number anyway: Its customary to understand what you're betting on before you place a bet
