TF2 D.U.M.B Contest

TF2 D.U.M.B Contest
Aug 9 2011
Contest Over View Winners
BLU has made an unprecedented scientific discovery that could win the war against RED. To house their top secret project, BLU launched Operation D.U.M.B - the construction of the most advanced Deep Underground Military Base ever. During construction BLU unearthed something truly shocking...the RED team...constructing their own base for their own Top Secret Project! The accidental collision has resulted in utter mayhem! The stakes are high as both RED and BLU struggle to uncover the other's BIG SECRET -- and protect their own.
Create a map consisting of separate RED and BLU underground bases connected "by accident". Each base must contain a different "Top Secret" project.

"Top Secret Project" Ideas...

- RED has salvaged a crashed UFO, while BLU has a Stargate project.
- BLU has a particle accelerator, while RED is creating a "Super Soldier".
- RED is cultivating a super virus, while BLU has opened a portal to Hell.
- BLU has found a dead extra-terrestrial, while RED is building a time machine.

Questions to help you Conceptualize...

- How did BLU accidentally discover RED?
- Were both bases finished or still under construction when they discovered one another?
- Are there still areas under construction?
- Is there only one way into the other base?
- How deep down are the bases?
- Are the bases completely artificial, or do they integrate subterranean features like rock faces, lava pits, underground streams, rivers, waterfalls or lakes?

- 2nd Prize: $30 STEAM store credit
