[Event] Babel Map Making Competition
« on: August 19, 2016, 10:52:46 AM HST »
Babel Map Making Competition!


Description:
One of this year's most consistently populated aloha servers is tower of babel!
Despite babel's rotation being large, we want to add new and better maps! And what better way than allowing everyone in the community a chance to design their own babel maps!
Why hold a competition? To promote creativity within the community, novelty within the most popular server, and to increase the popularity of the maps on rotation!
Spoiler for How To Make A Map:
Rules:
Each person is allowed a maximum of 3 entries.
Each entry must include a minimum of 4 screen shots.
Spoiler for 4 Mandatory Pictures:
1 of overview
2 of spawn areas, 1 per team
1 of area underneath the platform
Note: Including more pictures is encouraged! The more of your map people see, the more they may like it, and the higher the chances of your map winning!
When you finish making a map, post the name of your map with pictures of it below!
If you enter more than one submission, post them separately!
The deadline for submissions is 11:59 PM Sunday, October 2, 2016.

Voting:
Voting begins Monday, October 3, 2016, and ends Monday, October 10, 2016.
All entries will be listed in a poll and the community will vote for their favorites. After a week, the two maps with the most votes will be announced as the winner and runner-up. They will be tested on our babel server while full with 32 random players and likely added to its rotation if deemed enjoyable by the majority.

Winners:
1st place: Mario by Japanese Vippers
Runner Up: Ruins by Onigirl

Hello, here is my first submission. This was a map I had designed over a year ago when I still was a little optimistic bunny. Please ignore the fact that it doesn't have a babel.

EDIT: Oops, silly me didn't read the rules before submitting and didn't know you had to have screenshots. Please ignore this submission as I'm too lazy to load the map and take screenshots.

"will be tested with full/with 32 players and  if deemed enjoyable by the majority *added to rotation*"

I have issue with this. The majority don't speak English, and a minority of 3 English players could lead to a false "let's not add it to rotation" on a decent map.

there's a lot more to consider than only chat. we'll still use the same discretion that we normally do when adding maps to rotation. multiple tests at random times, observing how the actual gameplay pans out.
