    I hate to ask this but I doubt I'll be able to in the Steam Chat. Would it be possible to get a few more run through's cp_ace_72_a3 during a leftover test? I don't have much feedback on it from either feedback.tf2maps.net nor the voting thread.

    No guarantees, I'm afraid. The tests are more for voters to get a look at maps they haven't seen yet. However, you shouldn't have to worry about not getting feedback for much longer, because of deadline I'm about to announce way later than I should:

    Voting ends Sunday! 7pm CST. That's the start (midnight) of Monday in GMT. You can use http://www.worldtimebuddy.com to check when exactly that is in your own timezone. Make sure to have your votes in by then, because otherwise they don't count! Also make sure that you have at least 5 yes votes, because again, otherwise they don't count.

    After the deadline, I'll be tallying the votes and creating a list of the top 10 maps. These are the 10 maps that will be in the second phase of voting. When I announce the finalists in this thread, anybody who was eliminated from the competition will be able to update their map right then and there.

    NOTE: The announcement of the top 10 will not follow exactly with the start of the second phase voting. You don't have to wait until the voting thread goes up to update your maps.

    EDIT NOTE: I'll post the full listing of maps and their placements, not just the top 10.

    Results are in! Here are your finalists:

    Congrats to the winners and their maps! It's been an arguably fun and certainly long journey to this point, and it isn't over yet. These maps will undergo a second round of more thorough inspection, with input from a panel of judges. That's right, guaranteed in-depth feedback!

    For anyone who didn't make the cut, there is a bright side: you can update your maps without fear of disqualification! Feel free to publish any new versions of your maps for testing.

    Congrats to the finalists! a 72hr map is something I can't do so you've all impressed me.

    Should the server rotation be adjusted now?

    I goofed up and told someone they could update their map when I probably shouldn't have, so I'm opening this up to all of the finalists: If you have any bugs in your map that aren't game breaking (missing clipping, broken gamemode logic that's still playable, players spawning inside of each other, etc.), hit me up with what the issue is via PM and I'll let you know if you can fix it.

    Phase two voting ends this Sunday, so make sure you get your votes in before then. We're on the home stretch!

    Also note: finalists' votes don't count. Sorry!
