    The 2015 72hr Winter Special!
    Jan 23rd @ 9PM GMT to Jan 26th @ 9PM GMT

    Voting Thread
    Well, we've had another amazing turnout for the 72hr contest, with 43 awesome maps having been submitted. It's going to be a difficult one to judge! As so many maps have been entered in this contest we've decided to split up to voting into two stages to help us decide which maps you think are best.

    In the first stage, we'll be whittling down the maps into a smaller pool of "finalists" by having you guys decide if you feel each map should be in the finalist's pool. This is how that'll work:

    • For each map you'll be asked whether you feel it should be a finalist, to which you can respond: "Yes", "No" or "I haven't played it."
    • When the first voting period is over, the 15 maps with the highest number of "Yes" votes will be selected.
    • We'll be keeping an eye on map plays and trying to ensure that each maps gets a fair chance - be aware though that typically better entries get played more times. If you have any concerns over the number of times your map has been played, send me a message.
    • Please try to judge the maps fairly. Don't just vote for one map to go through.
    I'll announce how we're going to do 2nd stage voting when I've worked it out myself. :p

    The Google Form for 1st stage is now available at: http://goo.gl/forms/JsHXCrGMAh - Voting closes Monday, 9th Febuary at 9PM GMT

    In the meantime, here is a spreadsheet you can use to keep track of your feedback and votes: http://eu.tf2maps.net/72hr_feedback.xls - You can also use this to submit your vote if you're unable to use the google form for whatever reason.

    I asked this question a while ago, I think he said something along the lines of the mumble server conflicting with it and some things were broken that he needs to fix first before he can do the imaging.

    I have also finished the voting and I was able to play all the 72hr maps as well. I might do some edits prior to Monday if I feel I need to add more feedback.

    If anyone gets a chance to run an imp over the next few days (I may run a few myself), these are the maps that need the most testing and the least testing according the polling results currently:
    Code:
    ---LEAST PLAYED---
    turf_whiskeyriver_a15
    cp_hollowtop_72_a5
    koth_centrifuge_72_a4a
    pl_7244896_72_a4
    ctf_aquifer_72_a2
    cp_hilly_72
    koth_nadir_a1
    pl_danny72hr_a3
    koth_breakout_72_a4
    
    ...
    
    cp_flashwind_72_a5    
    ctf_ynders_72_a6    
    cp_backalley_72    
    plr_bien_72_b1    
    plr_split_72_a5    
    cp_ankh_72_a4
    ---MOST PLAYED---
    
    The results are quite interesing at the moment with a lot of maps vying for those cruicial few spaces in the finalist list, be sure to vote before the deadline!

    Woo, I get to be middling. That's better than I hoped.

    Now, I'm all for freedom of information, but I'd have thought maybe you should've deleted the name column of the voters. Privacy and all that.

    I apologise for not voting more! I missed a lot of the testing but I did want to attend more and I was updating my vote as I played more maps. Good luck to the finalists!

    Oh, and what does the "not played" statistic mean? I guessed higher percentages mean less playtime, but...?

    You could vote "yes", "no" or "not played". So it's the amount of "not played" votes each map got.

    Whelp, this did not go well for me BUT I feel like it was a good prototype for my Turf War gametype. I may try to fix the issues with it depending upon peoples interest.
