    I'm not sure whether I'll be able to enter this, but I have an idea formed, so I might as well ask: I see in the rules for the map name that "You just need to have _72 in it somewhere". Does this mean I could name the map something like "ctf_72fort", or "pl_72trombones", or "koth_the_72_conspiracy"?

    The full rule says it must be just after the map name, so no I do not believe those are acceptable. What would be however is ctf_72fort_72, pl_72trombones_72 and koth_the_72_conspiracy_72 (I know that messes up your idea of messing with the whole "72" thing).

    @Berry: I assume that later sentences with a single bullet point would override other ones.

    I think the implication is that you MUST go <gamemode>_<thing>_<thing>_<version>. It said the _72 "just has to be in there". So you can basically just have ctf_72_deadguys_a5, or you can have ctf_deadguys_72_a5.

    I'm sure they wouldn't care about trite like this with DQing entries for rule violations anyway.

    So, for my map, I want to put in a custom announcement where the announcer says: "Success! Now get to the final control point!"

    Are you saying that I have to make it and upload it before the contest begins?

    Well I didn't know for sure because I was afraid real life things will prevent me from participating, but now I know for sure: I'm in!

    not streaming. My computer can bearly handle hammer and youtube music at the same time.

    I say good luck to those entering in. Unfortunately I've got a lot of other things to do (work, school, etc) so I can't enter. I'll try to get into the Mumble channel if I have time, and I'll try to watch certain bits and pieces of multiple streams.

    A single announcer line would fall under a trivial addition to the map in my view. If it were more major that'd be the case, or you'd have to make it entirely within the competition time

    I'm in! Real life might interrupt but I've got an idea and this is the perfect time to push it out.

    Here's the two-stage payload entity prefaab I'm (probably) using: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6ffuv8n713o8b2t/pl_twostage.zip?dl=0

    Modified from ABS's prefab, with some stuffs thrown out and other stuffs thrown in. Seems to work fine, but no promises.

    Good luck out there, people.

    Little over an hour to go now. It's been a while since I've been this hyped for something!
    Good luck everyone! :D
