Looks absolutely stunning!

This view honestly has to be one of the most beautiful I've ever seen in a Counter-Strike level, so much depth.

Looking neat so far!

However, it needs way more dirt and wear overall. It's too clean to be believable.

This has been the most troubling design choice for me. I've been inspired by Hohenzollern (google image: hohenzollern courtyard), and that castle is spotless in parts, likely due to its young age as well as good maintenance. More grime and dirt is something that I'll be considering though.

Nice shot, I never thought to screenshot this angle :D

Map already downvoted by bots on the workshop, RIP.

Hey, don't worry about that. Workshop ratings aren't really important. Try to get views, subscribers, etc.

Yeah your retweet certainly helped :D but now It's buried, so I probably won't get anymore views and subs. :(

@grapen

Very nice work on the map.

I noticed that your map was on the #2 spot on the workshop

Screenshot:

However, it seemed that it suddenly got spammed with Down Votes or something - possibly because of these  aim maps?

Last I checked, your map had fallen down to PAGE 3 - when it had been in 2nd place on the workshop...

I don't mean to start a witch hunt, I'm just bringing this up because the same thing happened to me with my map, it was up at second place and suddenly got a bunch of downvotes and disappeared from the the first 2 pages.... although it has recovered some since then.

 

This guy has 4 maps all of which were posted in the last week or so starting June 30th - every single one - except the most recent one, is filled with Ads for Crate Gambling Sites....

Don't mean to start a which hunt but I just wanted to bring this to your attention, and share with others because I hope that Valve will do something about it. I've seen that same thing happen to other maps posted this week, it's a joke - it shouldn't be that easy for people to control the workshop....

Yeah it's most likely that guy with the scam ads. Always wondered what it felt like to have a front page workshop submission for a week. Dream over before it started. :)

Honestly the issue needs much more exposure - part of the problem is that it takes Sooooo few votes to destroy a map...

Your map has about 40 votes on it,  I bet all it would take is 10 or 15 downvotes to take you off the front page of the workshop...

My map had 62 ratings:

All it took was 16 downvotes to take my map from 2nd place - all the way completely off the front page 2 pages. (for 1 week most popular)

Basically anyone could go to their friends list - message 15 people and ask them to downvote someones map. (assuming it is a very new map, with few votes)

And they don't even need to Own CS:GO to vote on the map.... it's awful :mad:

A bit of a derail of this thread, but it's not even clear that the Workshop needs a downvote feature. Who gathers the most up votes would be sufficient.
