The 2015 Summer 72hr Mapping Contest! Announcement Thread | Upload Thread | Voting Phase One | Voting Phase Two | Results Thread VOTING PHASE ONE It's time to vote! This year we got a whopping 67 entries. That's a lot of maps! To help you figure out which maps you like and which ones you don't, the voting process this year is a lot more organized. The actual voting procedure for this contest is split into two phases, the first of which is the preliminary voting. In this phase, your task as a voter is pretty simple! You can vote for as many maps as you like, and each vote counts for one point. Just make a post in this thread and list every map that you like. You can edit your post as many times as you like until this thread closes. Please note that your votes should be based mainly on how much you enjoy the map, not how good the detailing is. A nice looking map is inherently going to be more fun to play on, but try not to base your votes just on how pretty the maps are. To make sure that you're not just voting for a friend, you're required to vote for at least five maps. Doktor Richter has provided this spreadsheet to help you keep track of what maps you've played. You're not required to use it, but it may help you stay organized! FINALISTS The top 10 maps from this round will enter the second phase of voting, which will feature a more in depth testing and scoring process. The winners of the second phase will be the winners of the contest overall. If your map does not make it into the second phase, you are free to start releasing new versions of your map without penalty. In the event of a tie for 10th place, all of the tied maps will become finalists. The second phase may also feature official contest judges. If you would like to be an official judge, and also agree to forfeit your ability to win the contest, contact me with an application. SCHEDULING This contest has a schedule for map testing! Two tests will be held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the next few weeks (one EU, and one US). Each test will feature 6 maps, with 20 minutes of play time for each. Note: The last week has been changed to run on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday format. The servers' default rotation will be set to the entire entry pool, so impromptus for any map in the contest can be run at any time. However, I recommend focusing on a week's particular set of maps at a time - it will make your life a lot easier. EU tests will be held at 8 PM GMT, and US tests will be held at 1 AM GMT.
