CPS14: Maprequest & announcement
The time is coming to another season of our Competition Premiership! This means we are waiting again for your maps!



Season 14 together with Go4

As you might have read, lately we announced that ESL will run a Go4 for TM2 Stadium, from December until end of February. Since this period meets exactly the next Competition Premiership, there is no more logical thing to do than using the same maps for both tournaments.

Although since CPS will end in early February, we will still go on with new maps after, till Go4 ends. So we are waiting for as many magnificent maps as possible in this season!

Tournament schedule

Both CPS and Go4TM will start on the first Sunday of December: 7th. Later we will clarify the exact dates for both tournaments. However, it is quite possible that even if teams decide not playing their matches during the holidays, Go4 cups will still take place. So basically it will be up to you to schedule your matches during that period.



Map requirements

Here you can see what you have to think about when submitting a map:

Here are all the informations that should be strictly respected:
  • name: "ESL-'name'"
  • Use what you want for "name", as long as it isn't a team or playername (and not similar either!)
  • no special signs in the name
  • length: 50-65 seconds
  • use of the NEW ESL Signs (please DO click on this link!) and follow its guidelines (dynamic signs!)
  • use new blocks if possible (at least a Podium)
  • Embedded blocks are allowed (preferably not as scenery)
  • Placing checkpoints backwards is forbidden (only in special cases)
  • Blockmixing is allowed, if it does not produce graphical glitches or driving bugs
  • GPS, intros and outros are forbidden
  • give it a delicate and nice outlook
  • the scenery is up to you (make sure it doesn't produce lags, lighting problems or graphical bugs!)
  • the tracks were not used in any competition before
  • the tracks are only known by yourself

Send the maps, together with a replay, to the following E-Mail address:

eu.tm2.maps@staff.esl.eu

Please use the following style for your mail subject.
"Maps - Competition - *your nickname*", else your E-Mail may be missed.


The deadline for submitting your map is Thursday, 27th November!



Competition admins wanted!

No tournament can be run at its highest without enough manpower and knowledge. Check out our another news if you are interested in being an organiser of your scene!

Stay informed!

Feel free to send it, but of course the track is rated if it meets the highest skills :)
Are we allowed to use different signs too, for example ManiaActu sign? http://www.mania-actu.com/uploads/images/files/download/Signs/logo_map_ma_2014.jpg

When you download signs, unzip it and there would be DynamixSigns.txt. Open it and you have two links in there, in the beginning of the track put http://gfx.esl.eu/media/eu/tm2/TM2Ads/ESL_Ad-Dynamic.dds, and close to the finish put http://gfx.esl.eu/media/eu/tm2/TM2Ads/ESL_Ad-Dynamic2.dds. You don't know where to put those links ? Just go change the signs and under showed signs you have "Select URL", click on that and simply paste the URL :)
What's a dynamic sign? Is it the 4-1-7 block (the big sign)? Dynamic board I mean. :P
