For the fourth time, MaverickServers is hosting a Quake 3 level design competition. Mappers from the community are encouraged to participate; veteran mappers and those looking to get into mapping are welcome to join in on the fun. Prizes will be awarded to the best maps. Sapphire, Wacom, Kot-in-Action and Massacre Servers are already sponsoring and there are more to come. The contest will start on June 2nd and run for 10 weeks until August 11th. Judging will occur for 1 week after. Registration deadline is on June 23rd. This group will track the progress of the maps, being created during this event. This reaches from scribbles, to blocking and alpha testing to the final mappack. Other material like for example interviews with the level designers will be released as well.
29 participants registered, only 8 went through the hard sweat-and-tear-deadline-phase... only 1 can take the first place and the cash!

Also thank you, Maverick, for organizing all this sponsoring, the forum, the judges etc.

If you have missed the maps, you can still download them here: Judging Mappack 2012
Now we have some time to edit our maps for a final release mappack. I will add this to the addon
section of this group when it has got released.
I hope it was an interesting read all in all. Probably there will be a next competition in 2013, and hopefully YOU will join us and our conversations in the forums, rate and test all those maps and help us to finish them... we will definitely help you!
So, see you next time! =)
