About The Competition
The competition is to build a zombie surf map that has a meaning and point to it. It should be designed around gameplay of zombie mod and surf so you should be looking at combat maps, unless you can think of a great skill map idea to interlink with zombie mod. The map should run the refix of 'zs' and aswell include the attached prefab at the bottom.

The competition will run from the 17th October to the 7th of November, giving you around 3 weeks to make and compelte your map.
As zombie surf is pretty much new, then the possibilites of what you do with your map is up to you and maybe your concept/ take on the way it should be mapped will influence others when mapping zs maps.
So be creative and remember to try keep the map balanced.
Please include the two following entities into your map by clicking the 'DOWNLOAD' text below and then copying them into your map.
The maps will be judged by a panel of steamgamers higher up staff and maybe one or two surf geeks (mobe ). They will be judged on the following 5 criteria:
- Balance of the map
Each category will be marked out for 10, then all the judges scores will be added up and averaged. The highest average will win first prize. Second highest will win second prize and third highest average will win third prize
There will be three prizes up for grabs for the First, Second & Third highest scoring maps.
