CSP2/CTP3: Maprequest
After the Summer break we'll be organising two premierships with new maps which are made by the community! We hope you'll be helping us out again with lots of maps, so we we'll be having great ones to drive the tournaments on!

Maprequest

Of course we're going to need maps to play this premiership on. Therefore we like to ask you to help us out, send us your best maps which comply with the following requirements:

  • Mapname: "ESL - Name"
    • Add the spaces around the "-"
    • Start your mapname with a capital
    • Team- and playernames (exact or similar) are not allowed in the mapname
    • No special signs are allowed in the name
  • General requirements
    • Maplength: 50-65 seconds
    • GPS, intros and outros are forbidden
    • Give the map a delicate and nice outlook
  • Blockusage
    • Use a range of blocks, avoid only using platform and GP-blocks!
    • Embedded blocks are allowed (preferably not as scenery)
    • Placing checkpoints backwards is forbidden
    • Blockmixing is allowed, if it does not produce graphical glitches or driving bugs
    • Add a podium to your map!
    • The scenery is up to you (make sure it doesn't produce lags, lighting problems or graphical bugs!)
    • Avoid blinding tunnelexits and too dark sections!
  • Sign usage
  • Map availability
    • The map has not been used in any competition before
    • The map is only known by yourself
    • The map is not uploaded anywhere

Send the maps, together with a replay, to the following mailaddress:

tm.maps.canyon@staff.eslgaming.com

In order for us to be able to find all of your maps in our mailbox, we urge you to use "Maps - CSP2/CTP3 - *your nickname*" as style for your mailsubject.

The deadline for map submitting: Sunday, 4th of September!

Maptesting: what's in the name?

Every tournament you'll dislike a map or mappack, find a (easy) cut and also like maps and find them good to drive on. For one tournament we have to "throw away" good maps because we have too many, for others we (sadly) have to pick lesser maps because we don't have enough.
Apart from checking if a map complies with the requirements, rating maps is a subjective thing. Your opinion of a map might be different to someone elses. For that reason we always make use of several community members who help out with rating maps. Based upon their scores and mappack-recommendations, maps are picked and packs formed. It is not something that you do in an hour, it takes real effort to test all maps when they come in and provide the ESL staff with usable comments. It is therefore also not a strange occurance for a cut to appear when (heavily) played by you, the players. We try our best to avoid this and it certainly causes some stress when you do find them.

If you feel like you can provide good ratings and comments and have some time to spare in the upcoming month, please contact TheM. Either by support ticket, mail or Discord (TheM#6588).


Stay informed!

The reason it's in the afternoon on Sunday is because the team matches are scheduled for the evening (20:00 CEST). But as in the last tournaments, you're free to move your matches in a whole week. So: just talk with your opponent ;-)
Hi there, I also have a few questions. I spend alot of my time on trackmania turbo for the xb1 and have realized that in the games menu esl habe a message saying they are looking for trackmakers for an upcoming event, however building these tracks on xb1 wouldnt be fitting your guidelines as we are unable to name them or use ESL signs in the enviroment. I was wondering if these guidlines are for another trackmania title? Many thanks!
