In association with Custom Map Makers.
Back in the olden days Oswald hosted Urban Radio which has a “server of the week” where people could join in the public server and play against him. For me as a relative noob I was thrilled when I got mentioned, “chuffed for life” are the words I’d use.
Anyway enough sentimental drivel, this is something we want to replicate but then for custom maps. One evening a month we highlight a new custom map, we play the map in TS and CTF and if possible bomb. This will be streamed live on twitch.tv. It won’t be a match but a public server, we have a couple of guests (see below) and the rest of the slots are open to the public. After, lets say an hour, our guests and the presenter review the map giving them their insight as player, mapper and developer. Together we give it a score out of 5 (the same system the download area has). This way we get people more interested in custom maps.
We've decided to hold the first "map of the month" on or around the 28th September 2012, we'll be opening up one of the CMM servers to anyone who wants to participate, this event will be telivised on twitchTV, SevenofNine will be joined in the commentary by Delirium and HappyDay.
Our server will host and we'll aim to play CTF, TS and if possible Bomb - all CMM members are encouraged to drop by and participate if possible.
We're still trying to decide on the map we use but all comments and suggestions are welcome.
For the purpose I've created a special page here that will explain things a little more and, closer to the event show a form for voting and comments.
