As we near the end of the 1th month of 2015, the time has come to look back upon what we as a community managed to achieve in 2014, prior to the release of the Master Chief Collection.
After a lengthy discussion between REMkings, Psychoduck and Flying Shoe ILR, a joint decision has been reached amongst the HC staff to revive "Best of Forge".
Many of you may be sat back in your chairs like a resident Scooby Doo taking a big gulp and a resounding "Ruh-Roh" due to the utter shambles that was "Best of Forge 2013". Fear not however as this event is being hosted entirely in-house, so there will be no lack of communication with partners this time around. Further more there will be no judges this year either.
You read that right ladies? and gentlemen, the winners of Best of Forge '14 will be decided entirely by the HC community spread over a one month period of nostalgic discussion and rose tinted spectacles. Back when we used to complain about only being able to play with 14 players in a custom game without spontaneous combustion.
In the spirit of this celebratory event of the previous year of Halo shenanigans, only content from Halo 4 can be nominated that was published in the HaloCustoms Map section between 11/16/13 and 12/31/14.
The categories to be covered in Best of Forge '14 are;
And so begins the nomination phase, between now and 02/08/15 12AM EST all members have the opportunity to nominate up to 3 maps per category, with the 7 most nominated maps in each category going through to the voting stage. Please bear in mind that you cannot nominate your own content and anyone found to have done so will have their nominations omitted.
After this nomination period expires the voting phase shall commence allowing you to vote for the winners of each category over a further 2 week period. During this stage voting for your own content will be permitted if it has been nominated.
Each category will have a winner and two runner-ups. Both winners and runner-ups will earn an exclusive HC trophy worth 15 points and winners will also earn a custom title which can be voted for in this very thread.
To get started check out the Best of Forge '14 sub forum. Please refer to the FAQ thread for detailed guidelines. Happy nomming!
