Dear Quakers!

Q2 Cafe is proud to announce the 10th Mapping Contest that will be hosted at Leray.proboards.com

We thought you could use a good challenge, so here it is!

This is the big 10 so we're planning something memorable. We'd love for everyone to sign up by February 15th, and have at least a full month afterwards to make something awesome. The last Contest was held back in December of 2011, making this one extra special due to a backlog of great ideas that have been saved up over the years!

There's no pressure to construct superb works of art, unless of course you want to, and we'd love to accommodate new mappers and beginners alike. We know everyone likes a good challenge so we're also looking for challengers to claim the top title.

The past events were all smash hits that rewarded the Quake 2 community with awesome new maps, and we don't see that changing this time. 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 mappers to miss out on this exciting event that will surely stimulate everyone's imagination for years to come!

And just so you know... there's already a number of top mappers who are psyched to have this contest in order to showcase their latest work and mapping skills in a venue like the good old days. They know how much this kind of group activity can help inspire creativity within the individual and the community. Many have great ideas they have been holding onto for years, and some of them are just itching to be realized. We're sure there's many more people out there who'd love to join but just need a little nudge and some motivation to unlock the mapper in them.

Imagine what you can make given all the great editors available today and provided the right outlet! Now's the time to do it and flex your mapping muscle. All entries are welcome, big or small, they will all help make this Mapping Contest a success. Lastly we need capable judges to help rate the maps at the end of this contest. If you know someone like that, please feel free to invite them as well.

Do you think you got what it takes?

Attention all Mappers and Quake 2 players!

There are now only 3 days left before the start of the Contest, so don't miss it!
We currently have 17 mappers and 6 Judges ready to go!
But we'd like to see some people from Moddb representing as well!
If you're a Quake 2 player with a bit of taste, you can be a judge.
If you can use Radiant, Quark or Trenchbroom you can map for Q2.

We've got a few Q3 and Q1 mappers signed up so it's anyone's game!
We want challengers from different backgrounds and skill levels to try and claim the title!

Here's a little preview to help make up your mind how much fun it can be:
