After a long time, two judging rounds, and a period for additional work to fine tune their maps... the results are in!
Special thanks to all our judges (Janne252, MonolithicBacon, CookiezNcreem, Kryptic, |GB| The Hooligan486) for all donating their time for free and voluntarily.
I also want to give a shout out to you guys, the mappers, that all participated. The reaction was much more than I could have ever hoped for and out of the 30+ maps submitted during the time zone each were fantastic contributions and made the contest harder and harder to judge (especially in the rural category).
Without further ado, here are the winners and runners-up for each visual category.
Rural Visual Category
1st - Westwall
2nd - Bryansk Forest
3rd - Halbe
Industrial Visual Category
1st - Bombarded Refinery
2nd - Rustungswerke Essen
3rd - Normandy
Urban Visual Category
1st - Caen
2nd - Market Ruins
3rd - Surzah
This is most likely exactly what everyone is wondering. I shall personally be making sure that each winner gets their prize from Relic.
I will also be using these nine maps as the map pool for the second part of this contest. Which will be announced and open for signups this coming weekend. So keep and ear to the floor to find out when we will be playing these awesome maps!
