Originally we were planning to have it for the full month of February so we could have the maps rated in March, but we're pretty flexible with the dates. There are a couple other options on the table, so let us know what works best for you. We're also considering:
Feb 15 - Mar 15 Feb 15 - Mar 31 Mar 1 - Mar 31
Map Mixer - ReMap - ReTexture - ReLight - Override Now anyone can Remix their favorite Quake 2 maps with ease!

Doesn't specifically matter to me when, I just need to come up with annoyingly awesome ways to make the players life miserable. I'm one of those few who just love those maps that the player tries to survive while doing some DM (that's why I loved Doom/D3 maps).
Currently this is a Quake 2 only contest, but we're not ruling out the possibility of cross porting or sharing the maps with other Quake 2 Engines. So if that works for you, we could use a prize or two for promotional purposes. Either way it'll be a WIN - WIN for everyone
I would donate prizes in exchange for the possibility that someone might bother to port one map to Q2W? Not sure I'd call that "WIN - WIN."
I'll donate $250 in prizes if the contest is specifically for Quake2World. It'd be a great opportunity to expose some of the most prominent and faithful Quake2 mappers to Q2W. It'd give those mappers a chance to create higher-fidelity maps that take advantage of some newer and unique features, but without having to learn an entirely foreign game. And by including the winning map(s) in the actual game, it'd move Quake2World closer to completion. Now that is more like a WIN - WIN, no?
Definitively also in 2015 a mapping contest makes more sense! But though im loving great Q2 i also prefered other game (UT) because of the missing muzzleflash vweap files. Thats probably why i never made a single map for it and think its not worth investing a editor studium. Not to mention my general shooter abstinence since most multiplayer servers proved have player fake bots. Maybe someday i wanna upload all working strogg player replacement models on moddatabase - for the sake of a classic that could still be the best of all.
