Tripwire Interactive is proud to announce the winners of the $25,000 "Banzai" Community Map Making Competition for Rising Storm. Since its release last Summer Rising Storm continues to rack up accolades and was chosen last week as PC Gamer's "Multiplayer Game of the Year" for 2013!

As with our other community mapping contests the "Banzai" competition was top notch! Here are the 5 winning maps:

1st Place/Grand Prize ($10,000)
Maik Dokter (Phosphate Plant)

2nd Place ($7,500)
Maik Dokter (Myshkova River)

3rd Place ($5,000)
Will Bullen (Kobura)

4th Place ($2,500)
John Chalabi (Otori Shima)

5th Place ($1,000)
Elliot Burgess (Kita Jima)

Honorable Mentions go out to:

Johan van Pelt (Bataan)
Elliot Burgess (Streets of Stalingrad)
Maik Dokter (Tula Outskirts)
Martin Palko (Sub Base)

We'd like to thank all of the participants for their submissions. The maps are available now on Steam Workshop and we hope to release some of the winners as official Rising Storm maps sometime in the future.

Great news and good job (and a big thank you) to the mappers for their efforts! And yes indeed, hope to see them released as official as soon as possible (no more half-empty servers the first 5 mins)

What's the deal with this? What decides if the winner will be an official map or not? Myshkova River won't be included into the game either?

Most of the maps from the RO2 contest ended up in the official game, and most of the above will as well.

They're only stating that UNTIL they do get into the official game, you can play them in the Workshop.

The top 5 will no doubt make it into the official game..... whether the other honorable mentions make it, I dunno.... depends on whether they can be polished up enough to warrant being brought into the official game.
