On my opinion, Dystopia was kinda boring. But thats just me.
Other mods are fine :)

I don't understand it either, and I'm sad that The Hidden didn't win the competition.

For each game category, there was a person on the staff who helped finger the winner, though I'm not sure how many other judges also weighed in alongside ourselves.

I helped with the UT2004 category. I was pretty firmly behind Soulkeeper and Path of Vengeance, so I'm glad one of them pulled through for the win.

I love Dystopia and think it's the freshest game for a long time. Well deserved winners in my eyes.
