Hello everyone, specifically our participants: @J-Garcia @Bodo420 @Bartman @Toreno @MarksMan @ZoRo @FTH @Yoko_Kurama
We'd like to thank you for your entries and the huge effort you put into the maps you built for us. While the ending is near, we at Lounge VC have no other choice but to extend the duration of the contest. So we might not be able to use the map for the finals. The reason for that is simple: None of the - as of now - received entries meet the standards for a 5 versus 5 map. Below I will give you short explanations why:
@ZoRo - Your map was not made for a 5 versus 5. We're looking mainly for a map which has a defender and attacker side. Unfortunately, what you built is an LMS Map.
@J-Garcia - Your map is beautiful and stunning. You did an outstanding job. We truly hate to deny your submission.. Thank you so much for your efforts, we could clearly see it. However the map is way too short. If I were to run from one side to the other it'd take me almost less than 10 seconds, which is not what we're looking for. Try expanding the map it is not that easy to cross the middle or be there that fast.
@Bodo420 You used HS' old base The reason we have to say no to your mappings is due to its identical way it is built. Too less amount of various/different objects used and all in the same lines. --> https://i.imgur.com/D7Id8vk.jpg. That does not meet Lounge standards, we're sorry..Still thank you SO much for your effort and the time
@Yoko_Kurama We weren't able to see your updated one, we accidently checked the old one, so pls stay tuned for a little longer
@Toreno Your map is insane, it is incredible beautiful and is sure one of the best builds made so far. It has an AWESOME RP effect to it. Big +1 for mapping such an awesome map! The reason why you didn't make it is simple: It is not made to be for a Lounge 5v5. While we generally like the idea of the military storming and cleaning the criminals up, it is not suitable for a tournament match to be played on. There'd be too much chaos. If you somehow manage to make it a defender/attacker side map with defender side (criminals at this case) not being able to hide literally everywhere, we could then maybe go with that! Your idea of the military cleaning up the area by killing 5 criminals is definitely an amazing idea for future matches where the attackers (military) will have to storm an area where as criminals have to defend a hostage, for example and are not able to move out a certain area.
@MarksMan You aswell got the amazing idea with the hostage. However your mappings do not meet Lounge standards. The object flipping at the house (which we know is not your fault) are a huge no-go. The stairs in "middle" which you used fences for, at the front and back at the house are not that good looking either. We did however like how you mapped the inside of the house which is a great plus. The flipping however is the main reason we couldn't go with it. Your mappings do have potential, definitely.
@FTH We think your map isn't suitable for a 5v5 either. It is way too short, too empty and walls are definitely needed which are also missing here. If you can work on these things we'd love to see more of it in the future. It has potential, aswell!
@Bartman Your map includes and comes with too much chaos and abuseable spots (shoot-through objects). I know you can do better than that! Think of CSGO!
We will extend the duration till the 15th of July. We're sorry that we couldn't select a winner yet. The new duration will give you more time to built, we hope it is enough.
