    I'm not sure why some of you are complaining about how it plays, or how it will play.

    It's a detailing contest.

    Nothing said this will be the final layout to go in game, just that the winner will go official. The winning map will be theirs to modify to their hearts content, just like every other map that's gone official.

    It's not that I don't want to enter, it's just that the map feels like it was made in a day to appease a request.

    You have a point, the map kind of does look like a days work.

    Anyways, I have a question, can you move/add brushes that they added if it doesn't' change the total layout? This map is like a big square.

    I was thinking this was a discussion thread. My mistake.

    I'm not sure what Valve's development cycle is on creating maps internally. Maybe they detail then tinker with the layout. Sure, we might not think thats optimal but it probably works for them.

    What's the point of entering when one of the big shots who always wins contests wins anyway?

    The point is to become one of those 'big shots.'

    Some people *coughTPGcough* are posting their threads for their unfinished maps right now. Would you (DrP) suggest doing that or do you not care?

    Just seems a bit early. I guess thinking about it, it doesn't matter much. I would guess it'd probably be best to have something to show first, though, before one makes a thread.


    DrP edited that post for a reason. I'd appreciate it if you didn't quote it. >_>

    Addendum:

    This is a really, really bad idea.

    At least with the other major contests you ended up with a bunch of complete, unique maps.

    This time you just end up with dozens of stylistical variations on THE SAME MAP, the ones that don't win become completely useless. It's not like the minicontests where it was just a small area of detail, this is an entire map.

    I have to agree. There's one person that will win, everyone should at least get a badge or something in-game if they sent in a valid entry. (Valid as in, made by them, followed the rules, et cetera.)
