I am now in charge of the FTW mapping competition because x8 got busy with school or something
First I want to apologize for the somewhat lackluster way the contest has been going (from FTW's end in terms of better support for beta testing etc - although it's not my
fault...) I agree with the frustrations Delerium has expressed (a minute ago in a post on FTW forum) about the lack of testing support from the FTW players.
Unfortunately it's the off-season so a lot of clans and players aren't very active, plus to make matters worse the FTW site is in the middle of being worked on... ie: its busted and lame right now.
However, now that I am in charge of the contest, I'm doing my best to wrap it up on a positive note!
Personally, I think the schedule of having the final betas due on the 11th and then the final maps due the 24th is insane. So we're supposed to do extensive player testing after the 11th (reasonably speaking something like that takes at least 2 weeks), then you guys get the results of all the testing and have like what, minus 2 days to fix up your maps?
First I need to see who is actually going to finish this contest. I know Delerium and Majki are definitely in. But I'm wondering about Flajeen, Vendetta, and HappyDay? Flajeen seems to still be around but says he doesn't think he could get his map done by November 11. Vendetta and HappyDay seem to have dropped out, (at least, they didn't post them on the forums, I am asking X8 to confirm that they also did not privately email them but I'm pretty sure they didn't)
