  1. Similar to the last two1,2, this competition is for the creation of new Halo CE maps, where users registered here (non-entrants must have 5 or more posts) will vote on their favorite submission. Submissions will suffer 2 rounds of voting, each with a 5-day duration to help maintain development schedules and heighten competition over the 2 month period. (all times in EST: UTC-5:00) Submission Rules Submission must be an unprotected .map file, with no prerequisite beyond public releases of Chimera. Overall modifications must not consist primarily of content that the entrant didn't create themselves. Submissions may not have been announced more than 7 days before this topic was made. Round 1 Entry Period: June 12th -> July 13th @ 11:59pm Voting Period: July 14th -> July 19th @ 11:59pm (Poll) --- Submitting: Post here with the name and description (or just link to development topic), and the direct download. --- Winning Prize: 15 Raffle Tickets Current Submissions Round 2 (open only to projects that entered Round 1) Entry Period: July 20th -> August 30th @ 11:59pm Voting Period: September 4th -> September 9th @ 11:59pm --- Submitting: Post here with the link to your release topic. --- Winning Prize: $50 (US) via PayPal + Promotion of Map via Mass-Email + 5 Raffle Tickets 2nd Place Prize: $25 (US) via PayPal + 5 Raffle Tickets 3rd Place Prize: 5 Raffle Tickets Additional Prizes (upon completion of Round 2) 5 Raffle Tickets for the creation of a development topic for your submission's progress made before Round 1 voting begins, and containing at least 10 replies by the end of the contest. OC does allow double posts made more than 24-hours apart, so you don't need to rely on others! 5 Raffle Tickets for a final submission voted as having the most improvement over their Round 1 entry (separate poll will be in the Round 2 voting topic). 5 Raffle Tickets for a final submission where its custom content owes no credit beyond yourself. What are Raffle Tickets?!
  2. Congratulations to @aLTis on winning Round 1 voting!
  3. This is the ROUND 1 voting topic for the 2019 CE Map Competition; keep in mind that all of these maps are still Works in Progress! Voting Rules Must have a post count of at least 5 on the forum (unless an entrant of the contest). Entrants cannot vote for themselves, however they can abstain from voting. Voting Deadline July 19th @ 11:59pm EST (‎UTC-5:00) Prizes Winning Prize: 15 Raffle Tickets (learn about Raffle Tickets in our FAQ) All: Allowance to advance to Round 2 beginning next week. Submissions
  4. ROUND 2 SUBMISSIONS OPEN Deadline: August 30th @ 11:59pm (EST)
  5. Great write-up! I don't see anything specific to HPC, so unless you have objection, I'm going to move this to the respective CE section as it's a much more relevant game.
  6. If you would like to request that an Editor post an article of your choosing, please submit the title/description along with the link to it here! NOTE You can earn 1 ticket for our Monthly Raffle on each of your article suggestions that get used. Please avoid discussing articles in this topic.
  7. Share what you've recently purchased! I just ordered a replacement headset from Newegg because I've been stuck using my cam mic for a while, and now that I have my laptop back I could use a second output device. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826158082
  8. Confirmed: This is glorious to use.
  9. Round 2 has been extended an extra week (dates in OP) to line up better for SBB's recording of the final maps, to ensure the videos make it out before voting begins. We will also be hosting a public game night on the 1st of September (few days before voting begins) for everyone to try out the MP maps in actual matches.
  10. That part was in the OP since it was first posted, however I did make attempts to make it clearer with a later edit. Sorry =|
  11. Could be a good thing, since you were unhappy with its performance too. With luck they'll just refund you and you can get something else.
  12. I've added a new "Additional Prize" for the competition: 5 Raffle Tickets for a final submission voted as having the most improvement over their Round 1 entry (separate poll will be in the Round 2 voting topic).
  13. You're going to be releasing something people play, and even if you don't place in the top 3, you in particular are still getting a prize in the form of tickets. I could see a map of the quality of Ballyhoo winning, and while you're stuck with this project if you want to go on to Round 2, you can still refine the fuck out of it and probably get it comparable. Not to mention you'll probably qualify for 15 tickets by making it to the Outstanding Maps list. Scripted minigames are flashy and creative, but generally don't have the depth you can accomplish with a traditional map, and as you mentioned, they've never actually won these competitions. I believe aLTis' map is pulling so far ahead right now because it was the most complete of all entries. There's still more than a month to go. I've also just added another "Additional Prize" for maps voted on as having the most improvement over their Round 1 entry.
  14. Nope, it's all about one project spread across 2 rounds.
  15. Submissions are always open, however periods are partitioned by month (EST). Voting topics go up for 5 days at the start of each month. Submission Rules You may only submit one screenshot, and it must be your own. Your screenshot must not be edited after it's taken. Breaking these rules will bar you from OC competitions. Prize 5 tickets for the Monthly Raffle Hall of Fame
  16. Is anyone going to post @(SBB) Storm's video of this, or is that supposed to be kept secret?
  17. This could actually be really cool; it has a few creative mechanics to it already. I'd love to see this polished up and more work done on the playing field.
  18. Round 1 Entries are now Closed! Voting begins soon and runs 'till the 19th @ 11:59pm.
  19. Just under 2 hours left! Get it built to the extent that it loads up ingame and you can make it to Round 2.
  20. Out of the current MP maps released for the contest, this was actually my favorite to play. I quite enjoyed the flow of it, but definitely a lot of refinement needed for that BSP.
  21. Obvious bugs aside, this has some promise. Not sure about the view distance dictated by the fog, but could definitely be an interesting layout. Covenant base looked fantastic, but Human base could use more pizzazz. Looking forward to seeing the release when you've had proper time for it!
  22. You're always so unoriginal.
