That was only for judging. You were free to have it tested during the actual 7 hours
I think contest-maps-only tests have been run in the past, but you shouldn't expect or rely on them. Make a map as you would any other and have it in a decent state by the deadline.
ITS HAPPENING FOLKS
Alright, I've lurked for too long at this point, it's about time I took a crack at one of these!
Thanks for hosting this, and I look forward to what's to come.
Can I use my map "downtown" as an entry to the contest?, it was made like 1 year ago and I'm actually busy working on another map
Time to make some wacky asymmetric stuff
Someone, can't remember who, asked if they'll get the judge badge if they judge this contest
Yes, they will. We tend to be fairly picky with judges for our major contests, though.
Well now this is interesting! I needed a break from Overwatch and this seems like a good thing to do in the meanwhile. Count me in!
Reminder that this contest ends in two months. If you've been planning on entering but have been putting it off, now would be a good time to get started!
Probably one of the stupidest questions out there but I just want to ask anyways:
Can we upload different versions of a map developed for this contest? (as in uploading alpha, beta and different release maps up to the final release?)
Do you mean each one as a separate entry?
wow that's pretty fast
but I meant different versions of an entry map
You can upload/update the contest thread you make, but the latest version is what is used unless otherwise specified.
You can only have 1 version of a map entered as far as I know.
oh alright thanks
Hello everyone! Less than a month now remains for this contest! That means it's time for us to start thinking about judging.
Firstly, let me recap how we'll be judging this:
So anyone can vote - but our chosen judges will have more weight. We're looking to get 3-4 additional judges (I'll be judging too!): if you want to apply, send a PM to both me and @phi saying why you'd be a good judge. Ideally, you should point us to judging you've done or useful feedback you've given before.
Mostly, it'll be the same as voting normally - you'll also be asked to give a paragraph or so on each choice, plus feedback on the maps.
Judging is difficult! We've had too many judges drop out before, so we'll be being fairly strict this time, probably setting a specific schedule for you to meet. Don't sign up if you know you'll be busy in January.
If you've entered, you can still judge - however, your entry can't win anything. You can walk away with bragging rights if you get the highest score, but you won't get any prizes, sorry!
If I apply to be a judge and one of my entries is a collab, will my collab partner also be exempt from (potentially) receiving prizes?
I'm curious; can one map win more than one category?
I didn't think of this! I'll bounce it off the other staff and get back to you.
I'll leave that one up to @phi : she's still in charge, i'm just lending a hand sorting out judges.
