On Feb 15th we'll be holding our 10th Mapping Contest hosted by Q2Cafe at http://leray.proboards.com. This is the big 10 so we're planning something memorable. Currently we have 13 mappers signed up, coming from different backgrounds, games, and using a range of unique editors. With the map format being largely interchangeable you don't need to be exclusively into one flavor of Quake (i.e. Q2) to join. Everyone loves a good challenge, so we thought we could interest some of you in a little Competitive Event of a different kind! This one involves making maps for a change, to see how you'll do against our lineup. We're looking for capable challengers to claim the top title, and become the mapping champs. We're also looking for people to help rate and judge the maps, so if that's more up your alley we'd also love to have you!
There's no pressure to construct superb works of art, unless of course you want to, so we'd like to extend our invitation and welcome any new mappers and beginners alike, to hopefully expose them to some creative spirit and learning opportunities within this fun filled event!
The past events were all smash hits that rewarded the community with awesome new maps, as well as learning challenges, and we don't see that changing this time. We're looking for new talent as well as Pros, either way all sorts of contributions are welcome. Most importantly this contest is about the fun experience and group activity that will enrich and expand our playing field. We would hate for any capable mappers to miss out on this exciting event, which will surely stimulate everyone's imagination for years to come! And just imagine what you can make with the right tools and tiny spark of ingenuity. All entries are welcome, big or small, they will all help make this Mapping Contest a success. We currently have 6 Judges standing by to help rate your creations. The Contest starts on Feb 15th and ends midway through March. You'll all get at least a month to create something awesome, so we hope many of you can represent. So if you don't mind some competitive spirit, please stop by Q2Cafe and join the Contest:
