Mapping Contest: Final Phase
After some general organization problems about the end of the ETF2L Mapping Contest, there was an internal discussion about how to end the contest in a smooth way.
The final phase of the Mapping Contest will start with a public decision to reduce all submissions to a Top 3. Every map will get his own public poll where players will be able to rate it from 1-10. As everyone should have played a map before he rates it, ETF2L will set up a public server including all maps (hopefully done soon). Polls will open after everyone was able to test these maps on our server.
After the polls are over Top 3 will be included into an invite tournament with 8 top teams. These teams will be split up in two groups. First two of each group will go into the Semi Finals, winner of that will play the final. All participating teams do another rating of the Top 3 maps. Top rated map will be declaimed as winner.
The winner map will be included to the primary map pool of Season 6 and also be part of the next regular Cup final.
Also another punishment has to be announced. After joske was banned in May due to excessive flaming, he created another account and joined a new team. Of course he got caught and his ban will be extended for another 7 months till February 2010. Well done!
