And here it is, the moment we've all been waiting for. It's taken months, and we've looked at a lot of maps, but we have finally arrived at our winner. There were loads of great maps submitted, but this one stuck out the most. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you... Monsoon!
Monsoon is a symmetrical map set in an urban environment (ya know, as urban as it gets in outer space with asteroids whizzing past). The map is somehwat reminiscent of Longbow, but with a more pronounced bend and some more verticality. Each base takes advantage of a split level design, keeping players on their toes while playing defense and giving attackers interesting options. Tha map also sports some Avalanche-style mancannons which make for some hilarious vehicle shenanigans. Good job PA1NTS and Frenchys!
I'd like to take this opportunity to once again thank everyone who participated in this contest, whether by judging, organizing, or submitting maps. It didn't go quite as smoothly as last time, but in the end the best maps shone through the masses. These contests are a true excersize of interaction between different community groups, with involvement from 343industries.org, The Halo Forge Epidemic, HaloCustoms and others. I look forward to doing this again sometime. Below are listed the primary judges of this contest.
