TF2Maps.net 72hr Winter Classic January 17th @ 4PM EST, 2014 to January 20th @ 4PM EST, 2014 Rules and Regulations | Upload Thread VOTING THREAD Congratulations everyone! 72hrs later we have 30 entries! I have done a preliminary check of compatibility issues. All of them follow standards as they should. That being said, as testing occurs and maps get played, if any of them still break any rules I reserve the right to remove them and any votes they have been given. I will post here if a map is disqualified. Please do not post here unless you are voting! If you want to make any comments or remarks, please do so in the original thread (Link at the top). The entries are as followed: arena_bakscratch_72_2 arena_berry_72 cp_aly_72_4 cp_bereth_72 cp_berry_72 (yes, 2 entries) cp_dark_72_3b cp_fish_72_2 cp_frozen_72_4 cp_icecrystal_72 cp_idolon_72_2 cp_leprecan_72 cp_mlj_72_3 cp_squintik_72 cp_trotim_72_4 cp_xzzy_72 cp_yacan1_72_a1 ctf_karmapolice_72_2 dm_egan_72 koth_alex76_72_a4 koth_fredrik_72 koth_garuda_72 koth_grizzly_72 koth_rolfman_72 koth_vacon_72_2 ol_kaptankul_72 (yes, it is ol. if this causes an issue, please tell me.) pl_crash_72_2 pl_player_2_72 pl_waffe_72 pl_ym_72_2 plr_takabuschik_72_2 These are all 30 maps. The voting rules are as followed: There will be a 2.5 week period of voting. You will be asked to play all the maps (or as many as you are able) during this time frame. When you have played the maps, you will make a post in the VOTING THREAD, stating the 'best 3' maps that you feel played well, had good balance and complimented/fit with the provided theme of the contest. You MUST provide a few sentences (1-3) saying why you feel the map is in your 'best 3'. An explanation is needed for each map. Failure to provide 3 maps, and accompanying explanation for each will result in your vote being null and voided (It won't count.) You can edit your votes at any time during the duration of the voting period. Once the thread is closed at the end of the voting period, all votes that have been cast are final. Can't vote for yourself, sorry! Results will be determined as followed At the end of the voting period, the voting thread will be closed. Each map that receives a vote is given 1 point. The map with the most points will be deemed the first place winner. Second most will be second and third most will be third. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 maps. Once votes are tallied a results thread will be posted with the total results and winners. Incase of a tie in the top 3 maps, and only the top 3 maps, I will provide a short voting poll to break the tie. You will vote for ONE map. This tie-breaking voting will last only 72hrs. At the end of the 72hrs, the map with the most votes will be given the highest rank of the tie breaker. Second most, second highest. This will happen for any and all tie-breaks of any size in the top 3. Example: If three maps all have 16 points and are tied second place, then those three maps will go into a tie-breaker voting round. A poll will be created with all three maps. At the end of the 72hr tie-breaker voting period, Map A has 5 votes, Map B has 3 votes and Map C has 9 Votes. Map C will be awarded full second place. Map A will be awarded full third place and Map B will be placed in 4th place. There is no prizes for you, Map B! Where can I play these? Both of our servers! Head back to the main page and click on either of our servers in the upper right corner! How can I install these maps? Simple, you can extract all the maps from the download below to your SteamApps/Common/<your user name>/team fortress 2/tf/maps folder, there will be all the other maps (ending with .bsp).
