I need some information

Hey how the hell can I make a map which is played on leagues,tournaments,wars,mixes?Something like de_tuscan,or de_contra,etc... I'm currently developing a map which I'm putting a lot of effort into it and I'm making it strategic for 5v5 But how did the creator of de_tuscan,for example,make the map so it will be played on leagues?? Anybody knows the answer?

    I've always wanted to know the exact same thing, I've found it's pretty impossible, they're stubborn on the maps that are official.

    I don't think stuff like this happens overnight; though I guess you could go around several servers and ask the admins if they'd consider using your map, that way you'll build up notoriety and get noticed by league players or whoever can get you into tournaments.

    Though I'm not certain, it could just as well be that there's a magic ritual involving lavender candles and rubber chickens.

    I think you are right,Devieus,the best thing is to post your maps on server's forums on maps suggestion sub-forums and that might give it a chance.

    I doubt it was because of something the mapper did. Much alike how server admins choose the maps they host themselves, tournament hosters choose the maps that are played too. Just try making it look pretty, make it balanced and free of any bugs/exploits. Then pray they notice your map.

    I know for a fact that the ESL just picks a map they like, decompile it, edit out credits from the mapmaker and release it as "their own".

    de\_tuscan was commissioned by CEVO. Most custom maps used in leagues are commissioned by the leagues. The other way a map gets played in a league is when they ask for suggestions for new maps. You can submit your map for consideration, but if that is the route you go, the only way you have a shot is if your map is played regularly on servers played on by league players. If they like it then your map has a chance to stand out from the other suggested maps. If the league likes the map, they may take it as is, or they may try and reach out to you to have you make a couple of minor tweaks. You can also post on league forums letting people know that you are creating a map which you would like to be considered for league play and ask for feedback on the map, but for that to work you will need to have the map running on servers so people can actually play it to see how the balance is.
