It's aliiiiive! After many emails with valve, I've got them to put the Mappers Medal into the game! (1/17/2012) What is it? It is an in-game medal (misc item) to recognized those individuals who have contributed and achieved great things in the TF2Maps.net and TF2 Mapping community. Why do we get it now? Valve forgot. ***As in, this was supposed to be added after the Artpass contest, and Valve "forgot" to add it. I've reminded them about it... and now it is here! When do I get it? Not sure yet. The medal is now in the game, so I'm going to assume "soon" How do I get one? Well, the staff have talked over the requirements, and we have concluded the following guidelines: All artpass entrants will receive their long awaited medal of recognition for entering the 2010 Artpass contest. All top 3 winners of ALL major mapping contest will receive a medal. (This is retro-active, so contest past, present and future will be honored)**** Those who the staff consider to have made notable and significant contributions to the TF2 Mapping community. We have not finalized the list of people who will get one. I will field questions. (But no "DO I GET ONE!?" questions. If you fall into those req's, you will get one) **** Contest that are not included are BATT, both 72hr contests and the assignment frenzy's, etc. It must be a MAJOR contest. **** And my reasoning on why the artpass people are getting the medallions 1.5 years later **** Another note, this medallion was NOT guarenteed to the artpass members before/during the artpass contest, it came up after.
