Well tbh the most people don't want to spent their freetime to test new made maps. Its timewaste for them, when this map don't come into automatch.
That is not true at all.
I did it for 8 weeks straight and have all of my feedback saved from the prior contest and that of the other peoples as well., If VODs lasted that long you would have 2 months of almost daily feedback across all maps, not even just finalist, and the streams would go for 8 hours or more and I would average 20-40 people depending on the day.
I don't care if they complain about the bad maps, the mappers can easily point the finger at them asking why they didn't help when they had every option and opportunity to.
And then we all go blind.

Basing on my point of view (from a mapper) i would be happy about more "streams". When i had worked on Westwall during the 1on1 mapping contest any pvp stream of Westwall was welcome to help me to enforce the quality of Westwall.
This is what I'm talking about. During the 1v1 contest, how many times did we (my stream community, and the top players i reached out to) play your map and give you feedback directly improving your map? How many weeks did we do this?
This is one of the many issues. This didn't happen at all. Instead we got 1 stream (when before it was multiple times a week and 100% on Sunday all maps were gone through that were updated from the week before, for 8 weeks)
And we got random feedback from people with 4 posts that can't scrape out of a 4k digit on their playercards.
So when the maps have issues, this could have all been avoided if Relic wouldve ponied up the proper resources for this.
But THEY CHOSE not too, it wasn't that they couldn't. It (read we, this community) isn't worth their time.

The issues outlined here wouldn't have been issues if the contest ran properly. It didn't how is nobody addressing that? All of these maps could and SHOULD be better if it was done right. If the mappers had more than 2 actual phases for implementation and testing cause of all the issues. If the community voters that were lined up back in MARCH didn't bail because of all the stalling and back tracking on Relics end.
I had to PUSH for the supply event, it seemed like it wasn't even going to happen, this was meant to be run MULTIPLE TIMES to encourage feedback (like it did) so the mappers could have updated and live feedback, instead we got it TWO DAYS before the FINAL submission.
There were meant to be skins associated directly with this contest, and finally mappers getting paid for the FREE PRODUCE AND OUTSOURCING that we do for Relic. Hours upon hours upon hours of testing and making maps, just for them to turn out bad because we are only 1 person and can only get so much testing, not to mention the fact that we are also human and make mistakes. They bailed on the skins and did this PR stunt bullshit wildlife crap instead of actually investing in their community. AGAIN.
Everything about this contest screams at how much Relic actually care, and the simple fact is they don't. I mean for fuck's sake I had to ask Andy to make his account here. Its like the management over at Relic is just licking windows all day and doesn't actually take the time to lead their team of people are passionate (Kyle and Andy). It all just makes no sense. I entirely regret having the conversation making this an official contest instead of just running the damn thing myself and asking Relic to provide a prize and in game shoutout. This contest would've already been over and done with, the maps would have gotten proper feedback from top players, and it wouldve been weekly for 8 weeks. Just like before.
I just, really don't know what to say. This has been nothing but a shit show from the start (march) to now, and I'm sure the maps that get introduced will have issues, and the community will scream and cry like they do, and it will all be a wasted effort that has taken literally over half a year to fail.

They weren't changed because we received 2.5 actual feedback phases. (original submission, week 4, and then final) and the final phase would be the .5 cause most of the feedback was so last second unless you were a god you wouldn't be able to integrate and test the changes in the time left before submissions.)
the steam collection wasn't updated for over a month due to relic, and they skipped an entire phase on top of that.
These maps all could've been much better, but who is going to invest time in these if Relic wont even run the contest properly?

Are you good at making maps? Do you want to spend 60+ hours making maps so they can sit on someones hard drive never to be seen by human eyes? Then join the Relic Uber-incompetent map making journey! At each stage Relic will surprise you by being even more inept than the last stage! By level 5 you will pray that the community could get the source code from these dolts and free us of their tard bondage. Watch as they turn their back on their sole source of income, their customers.
It wouldn't be funny if it wasn't... so true.

Fuck yes. I hope they allow custom commanders and loadouts. This will be like playing an all new game if it happens.

You do understand... that SEGA owned Relic during the official launch of the game and by your logic that means they "supported" through everything outside development correct?
Blaming the Japanese for "stopping support" of the game is about as retarded as it gets honestly.

Environmental protection and nature conservation is a huge global issue and raising awareness on it is a good cause, but this from a company that supposedly has no time to even ensure proper feedback for a map contest is rich.
