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.

Wooow, I was so certain Latteh's cs_shichang was going to make it! Regardless congrats to the finalists!

Shame there's not an honorable mentions list. I'm bummed my map didn't make the cut, but I'd rather figure out what I'd need to do to improve the map.

Congrats again and good luck for 1st place!

Nice, These and many more entries are operations worthy, and I sure hope to see them in one in the future. Hopefully this makes them visible for Valve. :)

This has been a great experience, some maps I expected in the finals and some I diddn't. For once in for ages, the workshop breathed quality competetive maps! :D Good luck to the four in the remaining two weeks.

It was great to see the amount of entries into this competition and it definately caused a noticable influx of quality maps on the Workshop :) Props to the Mapcore crew for making this the succes that it is!

It's so nice to see such a big community of CS:GO mappers. Must've been hard to to decide which 4 maps deserved to be in the top. I've taken a good look at these and I think I have a favourite. It's hard to decide between two of them.
