Raid Deathrun Mapping Contest 2019

5 posts in this topic

Hi there and welcome to 2019! We've got lots of exciting things planned but for now we're kicking off the new year with a deathrun mapping competition!


Deadline and submission

All maps must be submitted by midnight GMT February 3rd. Submitting a map is done by creating a topic in Please login or register to see this link.  with screenshots/info/whatever of your map and a download link. Your topic title should start with "[Mapping Contest]" to differentiate between contest submissions and regular content.



Right now the prizes are as follows:

  • 1st place: 3 months of VIP
  • 2nd place: 2 months of VIP
  • 3rd place: 1 month of VIP

I'll probably throw in a 15-20 EUR Steam gift card for first place if enough people show interest. If anyone else wants to contribute to the prize pool, hit me up.



  • You must be able to finish on 190 speed with a speed scale of 1.0 (why else would you be entering this competition?)
  • Your map must have a working endmap trigger
  • Your map must make use of the trigger list method for trap activation XP (if anyone doesn't know how to do this, hit me up and I'll write up a quick tutorial)
  • Broken lightgrid or failure to compile reflections = disqualified (no one likes a broken map)
  • No custom weapons (for the love of god, can people please stop doing this?)
  • Do not force viewhands/playermodels/weapons/... on players upon spawning
  • You can add secrets, but they are NOT to be taken into account when judging a map
  • You must not have started mapping before the time at which this was posted
  • You must be able to run your map using 1.7



We will have the community vote on each map with a set of criteria, each with a rating out of 5:

  • Theme
  • Level of detail
  • Uniqueness and variation of traps
  • Map flow


You can gain additional points with the following criteria (2.5 for each):

  • Optimisation (proper use of caulk etc. will gain you points, portalling for big and detailed maps is appreciated but won't be taken into account)
  • Submitting a map without script errors :)



Please login or register to see this spoiler.


If you have any more questions, feel free to ask below.

Edit: If you're planning on entering, please comment down below so I can get an idea of the amount of contestants.
