  • Judging Process

    • The gameplay is essential, this is where maps will gain the most points via judging. We’ve gathered a list of ideas you can consider for your maps.
    • We will also look at the quality in the visual aspect, and we cannot wait to see your creativity!
    • Together with the gameplay we will also look at the flow of the map. Do you often get stuck in ramps, are there enough mid-air action together with ground action, did you combine teleporters in a creative and fun way, did you add a Jail and does it make sense to the map and theme?
