Contest finalists have been chosen!

Before announcing our finalists, we want to thank everyone for participating and giving your feedback: with over 150 entries, this event has thus far exceeded expectations in every way.

We strongly considered adding an “honorable mentions” addendum to this announcement, but realized there were simply too many maps which came extremely close to becoming finalists, lacking only one of our “big three” judging criteria components.

 

 

Now, without futher ado…

These exciting levels exhibit competitive potential, excellent visual presentation, AND a satisfying level of polish, making them truly strong representatives for our talented community. As finalists competing for the grand prize, the authors of these levels will be able to update their work based on your feedback, including fine-tuning their competitive layouts using public playtesting over on Reddit. Let's support them on their journey!

To check out the excellent prizes awaiting our finalists (including money prizes + official Valve merchandise), click here.

 

 

 

Congratulations, finalists!

...but who will be the Grand Prize Winner? Find out September 30th.

 

 

 

 

P.S. – To all our wonderful participants: don't despair. Level design is an art to be pursued for its own sake, and brilliant work should always be celebrated and studied. Additionally, Valve has consistently supported CS:GO community mapping, and Valve Operations remain a lucrative and thrilling opportunity for community mappers such as yourself. Valve’s criteria for Operations can be found here.

I find it a bit iffy that maps that weren't updated the entire contest made it into the finals so easy.

Certanly, all the finalists look very promising. Congratz.

I knew my map won`t be one of the finalists, but that wasn`t my goal. Contests like these give me the motivation to start working on a map and FINISH them. Thanks to everyone who helped me out and congrats to the finalists! I wonder what maps will make it into the next operation :)

I think you won't have to worry too much, your map has a lot more custom content than any of the finalists. I think it'll be in an operation for sure :)

Congratulations! It would be great if you said something about the maps too, like what you like about them and what they did well to score the highest in the three judging criterias, I'm especially curious about the fun factor.
