It's been a long journey to get here, but we're not done yet. While all of these maps deserve some recognition, we're here to see what maps are the cream of the cream of the crop. Let's get down to business: SCHEDULING We're doing something a bit different this time around for scheduling. For the duration of the judging period, every gameday and impromptu test will have a 72 hour finalist included. This means that if you want to submit a ballot for the contest, just join our regular tests. There will also be a few tests dedicated just to finalists, but not many. Voting ends on the 20th, which gives you 2 weeks to cast your votes. VOTING Voting will follow a format that you're probably already familiar with. Simply pick a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner. Your 1st place vote will get 3 points, your 2nd place vote will get 2 points, and your 3rd place gets 1 point. It's recommended that you explain why you think your maps deserve the placement that you're giving them, but it's not required. There is also a panel of judges, who will be providing in-depth feedback for every map. Their final scores, when tallied, will count for 50% of the final score. Public voting (the part that you, dear reader, will be participating in) will count for the other 50%. PRIZES As a reminder, here's the prizes that the winners will be receiving: Spoiler First Place will receive: The Map Maker's Medallion! A painting of your map from DiscoSwan!
