CSGO Minigame Mapping Contest - A Contest for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Contest has ended.

CSGO Minigame Mapping Contest

Intro

That's right! It's finally time for a contest for games just for me, Mini!

Ok so just joking, this contest is looking for the best CSGO Minigame maps!

A group of CSGO Minigame servers have come together again to sponsor a mapping contest in collaboration with GameBanana.com for this summer. Your task is create a brand new Minigame map for CS:GO. It should look good, be original, 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 favoured.

Thanks to Rebel's CorpSwoobles!, Thorax GamingKillzone GamingEdge Gamers Organization, Steam Gamers and Syndicate Gamers.

Judging

Minigames maps vary massively so it's hard to define exactly how the maps will be compared to one another. However these are the main things we will be looking for.

  • Unique, interesting and varied activities for the players to play on.
  • Multigame style maps will be favoured, 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.
  • Optimisation will also be considered. Maps shouldn't cause large frame drops or lag.

Judges will be gathered from all the sponsoring servers and the scores will then be combined and ordered by GameBanana to decide the winners.

Rules

The rules are listed in the right hand column. Make sure to read them through carefully before deciding to enter the contest. If you have any questions regarding them, simply comment below and we can clarify issues. 

The entry must include this banner 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 sponsors icons + "Minigame Mapping Contest" text in another way. Just make sure like with a banner it's not hidden away somewhere no one would see.

It's worth reminding everyone as well that you shouldn't be using other people's content in your map without permission due to the fact that you could win money with their content in your map. This includes ported content from other games.

 To qualify, the submissions must be uploaded to the site and tagged as a contest entry before the DEADLINE! If you don't see the contest listed on the add/edit form of your submission, make sure you have hit "Join" on this contest page first.

    Haven't mapped minigames for csgo before so could someone help me with a few of these questions?

    How many players should the map be able to support? I'm currently going for 32.

    Is warmup used on most servers? 

    Is the defualt gamemode casual? do players start with armour? and can players pass through eachother but stand on teammates heads?

    Are point_servercommand's generally enabled?

    Thanks.

    "Course style maps are not allowed."

    If we are making a multigames map are we allowed to have some course maps mixed in with the rest?

    "It's worth reminding everyone as well that you shouldn't be using other people's content in your map without permission"

    Does this include music? Music in multigames maps always gave them so much character :(
