A Tale of Two Skill Sets PHASE 1 PUBLIC VOTING hread Rules and Regulations | Upload Thread It's that time of the year, the actual serious votes of a major contest! As per the judging rules, the public voting, much like the official pro-voting will be done using a 1-10 system in various categories. What are those categories? Good question! For stage one, judging criteria will be: Gameplay (40%)- Is your map fun? Do we enjoy playing it? Do we want to play it again? Balance (40%)- Can red beat blue as often as blue beat red? Are all classes balanced against each other? Does player skill control who wins most rounds? Technical and Optimisation (20%)- do your doors work? Do the navigation and .pop files work correctly? Does the map break under certain conditions? Is everything packed correctly? This category will also include a limited amount of optimisation- not much, but if your map doesn't maintain a reasonable frames per second rate it will lose marks here. It's simple. Just give a 1 to 10 rating for each of the categories. If you want to provide a reason for why you did that, go for it! If not, don't worry about it. I'll take care of doing all the complex math and stuff. Just copy and past this table into your post, and replace the X's with the numbers.

You'll notice koth_refuel is not on this list. Due to the fact that it's a fullbright map, Swordfish and I decided to pull it from judging of the phase. This is to make it so that the fullbrightness doesn't interfere with the other maps in the testing and degrade the integrity of the judging. That being said, we are allowing it for the detailing phase, so if you want to detail it, go right on ahead. Here's the maps file names (thanks Berry!) for your reference. cp_lasseter_a7 cp_keikoku_a5 pl_sergis_c10_a4 koth_prescott_a6 ctf_hayloft_a1 koth_grizzlyc10 cp_adjunct_a13 cp_overwatcher_a4a cp_sleekcrete_a4a cp_bridges_a5b cp_amaranth_a14 koth_solitary cp_innovation_a5 sd_freshwater_a11 koth_pitfall_a10 cp_gulge_a9 cp_delicious koth_point_a2 pl_effigy_a6 mvm_intercept_a11 mvm_callous_a3 Judging ends on May 11th 2014, at 2PM EST.
