Hello everyone, today I am happy to announce that we have come together with Gamebanana and 6 other communities to bring you a MiniGames Mapping Contest! Your task is to create a brand new MiniGames map for CS:GO. It should look good, be original, and be fun to play on with the quality and quantity of activities to use. Course maps are not allowed and multigame style maps will be favored.



Judging

These are the main things that will be looked at when a map is being judged.

  • Unique, interesting and varied activities for the players to play on.
  • Multigame style maps will be favored, however other single gamemode style maps are still allowed and could still score well if the concept and execution are good. Course maps won't be considered and shouldn't be entered.
  • Visuals will be an important factor. Maps should look good and be well executed throughout the map.
  • Optimization will also be considered. Maps shouldn't cause large frame drops or lag.



Rules

1) Every submission must be a playable Minigame level for CS:GO!
2) Course style maps are not allowed.
3) Entries must be submitted onto the site (GameBanana.com) and tagged as a contest entry before the deadline.
4) Entries must included the banner shown in the description somewhere in the map where it is clearly visible to everybody. If you really don't want to use the banner, you can implement the all the logos/text that are on the banner in another way. Just make sure the logos are still clearly visible.
5) If the entry is uploaded to an external site, it must state that it was created for the CSGO Minigame Mapping Contest.
6) Submitted content must be considered "Original", entries should not be rethemes, version 2's or copies of other minigame maps.
7) The submission can use pre-existing assets such as existing models and textures, but enough work should be done to consider the submission a 'new release' made for this competition. Simply re-uploading a previous piece of work will not count.
8) Multiple entries are allowed, however quality is better than quantity.
9) Each entrant may only win a maximum of one (1) prize.
10) Team based entries are allowed, but the entrants will have to decide and agree on how to split any prizes awarded.
11) Entries cannot be modified after the deadline except for changes to the submission profile (changing the description, notes or screenshots).
12) Judges cannot enter or assist entrants.



Prizes

1st Place - $250
2nd Place - $100
3rd Place - $50



All submissions must be uploaded to this site and tagged as a contest entry before the end date of Jul 7th, 2019 @ 11:55 pm UTC.

Good luck!
