  Official Relic Winter Assault Contests - Community
  Posted by: Komrad on 08-24-2006 @ 04:12
This News Item has been viewed 10,578 times
Over the last eight days, mapmakers have been scrambling to put together maps for an official Relic contest that Buggo (Relic's Community Manager) recently got approved.

The contest is twofold: First, contestants submit a 1v1 map over at the Relicnews forums. Relic staff will review the submissions and choose two winners based on map creativity, originality, and playability.

For more details, go here:

If you have a map to submit, NOW IS THE TIME TO GET IT IN! The contest closes Midnight, August 24th (That's TOMORROW NIGHT!). At the time of this writing, there have been around 20 submissions, all by every mapmaker of repute (Listoric, Hangar-8, FreakNasty, Rayden, Br. Sgt. Burns, and others).

Even if only two get the prizes, everyone benefits from the high quality of maps that have been submitted thus far.

The winners get a Relic T-shirt, a free, signed copy of Dark Crusade once it becomes available, and their maps become part of the official Relic Tournament.

Which brings me to the other part of the contest: a 1v1 Winter Assault fest.

For details on that, go to http://www.dowtournaments.com/

Cash prizes offered for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places, along with signed copies of DC and a Relic t-shirt.

Additionally, all participants (of either the map contest or the tournament get entered into a random drawing for either a free copy of DC or a Relic T-shirt).

ya know, in my opinion, i think that when the 1v1 WA contest starts, the semifinalists and finalists matches shuld be posted on this site as replays so ppl can see wat TRUE strategy is all about... and get to see the awesome matchups, cuz if u ask me, those last 2 matches will be awesome since they were professinal enuff to get to the end. i will root for any ork or IG player, woot woot

The relicnews boards was where the announcement was first made, and that only nine days before the maps were due. Buggo apologized, since the powers that be at relic only recently approved the contest, prizes, and whatnot.

It was either hold the contest now, or wait until next year. He chose to do it now.
