Winning Entries

In 5th Place
jb_tropico by Taurus#

The judges gave a mixed response to this map. Many praised the amount and varied types of minigames that were implemented into this map. However they did feel that most of the games, while offering unique twists beyond just the standard games, weren't as innovative compared to some of the other maps we had submitted. Some really liked the tropical theme while others felt it strayed to far into just looking dusty and a bit bland in places. Other complaints included that its size means that it struggles on larger servers as well as some of the buttons for the games being very easy for the T's to press.

 Winning: $30

In 4th Place
jb_lost_planet by Riczz

The judges complimented the design of this map with them stating that was a great execution of a space theme. The games tied well into the map and there were some fun and interesting ones.  Unfortunately many of the judges reported issues and bugs related to the minigames, ranging from some just not working to others makings players invincible. While these should be quick fixes, it meant that this map drop points as it had to be judged on its current state.

 Winning: $60

In 3rd Place
jb_marioworld_rsc by Hypilix

The top 3 maps in this contest were very close and the judges gave this entry a lot of praise. They enjoyed the theme and how well it was used throughout the map. They also felt the map layout and balance was excellent with options for the T's to rebel but not too many to be annoying. The games were also well done and a lot of fun to play as the T's. With the top 3 being so close, the negatives came down to smaller issues like there being no minimap as well as the game simply not being as innovative as other entries.

 Winning: $90

In 2nd Place
jb_chicken_island_b1 by ^Dede

Splitting the top three maps was almost impossible and it came down to minor details. All the judges loved the design and concept of this map and the praised the effort put into it. They loved the unique and innovative games included in this map and found no major issues with any of them. This map is clearly made with large servers in mind and functions great with lots of players. Given how close the scores were, something simple like a minimap may have been enough to push this map to first.

 Winning: $130

In 1st Place
jb_arcade by thorgot

The games on this map really impressed the judges earning a perfect score in that category by nearly every judge. They praised the originality of the games included and how much fun they were to play on as well as the effort put in to even get some of these games work in CSGO. Some of the judges did feel the design was a bit bland in places while others liked the simplicity of it. Some judges also mentioned that rebelling was a bit difficult despite plenty of things to help the T's, the CT's  had very defensible positions to stay in. However even with that, the amazing games carried this map deservedly to first place!

 Winning: $200

Congratulations to all the winners! Hope you all enjoyed this contest, we have another mapping contest coming very soon!
