I'm currently not in a position to accept new maps for testing, neither am I able to test any of these easily at the moment, I'm very sorry for the inconvenience. Hello, Regarding the newest Major Mapping Contest, I have a proposition for mappers: Our Competitive Team Will Playtest Your Contest Entries killingJoke is a growing community, with 3 servers and a competitive war team. Having seen the newest contest, I thought it would be an idea to get our more competitive players involved, and they have very much agreed to help out! If you are interested, your map will be tested in a competitive environment by teams of 6 players, they will thoroughly playtest your map and provide as much feedback as they can, specifically targetting your map's gameplay and how it could be improved for competitive players. Since the testing will take place on our private server, we can also offer SourceTV demos to anyone who wants them. --- We haven't organised everything just yet, we know that the first maps will be tested on the weekend. If you're interested in getting your map tested then let me know here or via Steam, the first maps requested will most likely be the first maps tested. In terms of feedback, I plan eventually to get a page up on our site, which will list the maps being tested and allow for playtesters to post comments for everyone to see (I'll make sure that any feedback they have prior to this is sent to the mapper), SourceTV demos could probably be linked for download here as well. Good luck with the contest everyone, if you have any further questions regarding this or the testers involved, please let me know! --- Participants So Far (In The Order They Will Be Tested): Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Map Author Status ctf_arid midget31394 Tested (a5) ctf_assembly The Political Gamer Tested (a5) ctf_nutomic Nutomic Tested (a2a) ctf_desind VFIG Tested (a2) ctf_rippleside Eyce Uploaded (a6b) ctf_bristen Bslashingu Uploaded (a2) ctf_soda Colt Seavers Uploaded (a7) ctf_sabotage grazr Uploaded (a2) ctf_steff0o Steff0o To Be Uploaded ctf_sandvichcredit supersandvich To Be Uploaded ctf_stockpile Hanz To Be Uploaded ctf_clocktower ScreamingGerbil To Be Uploaded ctf_alaska zpqrei To Be Uploaded ctf_overlook DBP To Be Uploaded ctf_fusion Ravidge To Be Uploaded ctf_machina Caliostro To Be Uploaded ctf_norma Furex To Be Uploaded ctf_wiretap Void To Be Uploaded ctf_converge Psy To Be Uploaded ctf_solar Selentic To Be Uploaded We will only test the same version once, if your map has already been tested but you would like us to test a new version, please let me know. We will test the latest version of your map when we get to it (So no need to tell me that your map has been updated if we haven't tested it yet!). --- Map Feedback and Comments: http://ctf.killingjoketf2.com/ Very WIP, and probably only Firefox compatible at the moment; I'm no good with website development in my defense, I'll have it sorted out later though. For now it lists the maps, clicking on them displays comments. (New Edit: ) Holek will be redoing the page later to support multiple browsers, design will probably improve from there as well. Maps are added automatically when loaded in-game provided that they're CTF maps, players will be able to send notes to the database (for the map that they're playing.) Players who were in-game will also be able to leave some form constructive feedback on the site when testing is over (including how the game played, and how it could be improved from a competitive point of view).
