CEVO / 2014 CS:GO Mapping Contest


Thanks to all of our mappers for their amazing submissions, and to GAMEBANANA.com for their continued support of this annual contest. We're happy to announce that after just over a week of extensive play testing, we’ve narrowed the submissions down to our top 10 favorite maps for public voting. Special mention goes to de_coupdegrace, de_soiree, de_rostok, de_dogma, de_theos, and de_coalition which were just outside the top 10.

Public voting will take place from now until Monday, June 30th at 11:59 PM PDT. Votes are limited to one per person, and fraudulent votes will be removed at the end of the contest. Players who have competed in a CEVO CS:GO event in the past year will have their votes counted 2x. With over 70 maps submitted, this was one of our largest CS:GO mapping contests to date. If you’d like to check out the rest of the maps that didn’t make it to the top 10, visit the CEVO / GAMEBANANA 2014 Mapping contest page at http://csgo.gamebanana.com/maps/cats/7780.

1st (50%) - $500.00 + map used in CEVO Season 6 preseason

2nd (35%) - $350.00

3rd (15%) - $150.00

After the voting period, contest winners will be contacted via PM on the GAMEBANANA website with instructions on how to claim their prize.

So many votes in such a short time. [de_facade] Hmm, I hope, will check cheating votes as last year. To Renato Lopes, nice new acc.

"These top 10 maps are ridiculous. Tulip shouldn't be there because the guy started working on it way before 3 months, I know this because I play tested his map. This is against the rules of the contest. Ignite is not even an original piece, it's a remake of fire, which is against the rules of the contest. (You DQ'd Blizzard for this reason.) Even De_Fuel was in production for way longer than 3 months. You mostly selected warehouses filled with crates. What a joke!" - From the GameBanana comment seciton

It was rather tough to judge the maps while still being in my finals, for those maps I actually play tested and judged with various others my personal favorite goes to de_facade having competitive play in mind, runner ups being de_haven and de_island We really got some nice submission but well let's see who'll win it this time!

Well, I'm personally glad I made it to Top 10. Still not believing that I'm going to win anything. Pretty sure someone playing CEVO for ages can assemble more votes than me. Congrats to all others that made it to the Top 10. I wish you all good luck.

de_facade. It has been planned very well offering fair gameplay for both parties, with great fps and optimization. It is sure to tempt even the skilled of players. Ps: I couldn't help but notice the comment earlier. Yes these may be new accounts, but by individual people. We all support TopHATTwaffle and his great work. Regards
