Epic Games & Mapcore's Unreal Tournament Level Design Contest Progress Update

Almost two months have passed and we have a little more than one month to go until the July 4th 21:00 GMT+1 deadline. Phase 1 was a big success with 74 submissions.

The following 28 maps have been uploaded to Epic's UT Hub servers:

Alpine, Bridge, Croft Alpha 2, Cascade, Crossbridges, Deuterium, Dome, Eternal, Exo, Fall, Foundry, H09, Outbilette, Oxide, Plaster, Purification, Quay, Rust, Scoria, Silo , ShipRekt, Thaw, Traina7, Trustfall, Vacant, Malestrom, SuperCollider, RadioActive.

The following 6 maps failed to load due to technical issues (various reasons):

SD_pitfight, TS-swampforts, TSD-Contestmap, Royals, Batrankus Bastion, Karusel.

Please keep this feedback in mind for your Phase 2 submission:

Keep the name of the pak file the same as the name of the map you have posted. Many maps submitted have a completely different name than what was submitted to Mapcore.
Add a screenshot to your map (in game). It will help encourage people to actually play it. 
Have all files available to download on a site that doesn't require sign-ins.
Make sure the prefix on the maps are DM- or CTF-. For showdown they should be DM-.

Disclaimer:

Also, I've lost quite some time chasing everybody down to submit in time, get the download links to work, etc. I understand that we have a lot of new people who don't call Mapcore their home yet. But keep in mind that it's your own responsibility to check in and see if new updates regarding the contest are posted. We use the forums and social media to reach as many people as possible, but it's easily missed. So keep your eye on our UT Contest FAQ or the UT Contest Discussion thread. Besides the forum and social media, I won’t be reminding people personally for their Phase 2 submissions

Play testing:

Now, onto the good news. Here’s how you can setup your matches on Epic’s UT Hub servers:

Start Unreal Tournament.
Select 'Find a match'.
Select a random hub (has an Epic logo in front of it) that supports Showdown.
Press 'Join' in the lower right corner (do not join a specific game mode, join the hub).
Select 'Start new match' and then select ‘Custom’.
Select your map, wait or invite players and have some fun!

Let’s finish with some random screenshots of our Phase 1 Submissions.
