This is especially impressive since the map was released less than 3 years ago!

Who will get the 1 millionth finish? I’ll update this post once the finishes are in.

New Map Release Rule

2023-07-23

Hi everyone,

We’re introducing a change that will have an impact on how new map releases are handled. From now on, after a map has been officially released, we are granting the map author a generous 2-week grace period.

During this period, map authors will have the opportunity to address and fix any map skips that may have been overlooked during the initial testing. Once the time’s up, there will be no more fixes, except for design bugs that don’t mess with gameplay and QoL patches addressing, for example, softlocks, provided they do not affect the leaderboard rankings.

It’s important to note that during this grace period, ranks might have to be removed if the map fixes significantly alter the gameplay.

We introduce this new rule for two essential reasons:

  • Firstly, it’s all about our commitment to creating a dynamic and thriving speedrunning community. With this update, players no longer have to worry about whether a skip is allowed or fear losing their hard-earned rank due to map fixes, after the grace period ends.

  • Secondly, it’s worth noting that this specific rule was not formally announced in the past. Maps were previously fixed based solely on the mappers’ requests at any given time. Now, we have a clear and fair process in place for everyone.

Admins’ Discretion: It’s important to note that the admins reserved the right to circumvent this rule if a situation arises where it is absolutely necessary. We’ll always strive to be fair and make informed decisions, especially in special cases or extraordinary circumstances.

Once again, thank you all for being a part of this fantastic community. Your creativity and commitment to pushing the boundaries of the game and the fantastic techniques and ingenious big brain skips you all showcase never fail to astound us.

If you wish to discuss this new rule, join our discord.

We look forward to seeing what new creations our community will make this year!

Advent of DDNet 2022 Recap

2022-12-25

DDNet ran the Advent of DDNet 2022 for the first time this year. The event just ended and the results are out! I hope everyone had fun playing these maps, got to see new parts of DDNet and met new people in the community.

This was a spontaneous idea by heinrich5991, which we started implementing in the evening before December 1. Huge thanks to our testing co-leader Pipou for modifying maps for the event! Thanks to Patiga for the map scaling, mirroring, and rotating tools, thanks to louis and nothing for helping with picking maps!

Special Maps

Let’s look at what we did for the last 24 days:

Screenshot

Everyone on DDNet was invited to play, we selected one map per day specially for this event. We started on December 1 with the most popular map on DDNet ever, Multeasymap (> 820.000 finishes already) to get as many players to participate in the event as possible. Then we went to play some great but less popular maps to introduce them to our many new players. Some maps had variations like being rotated or mirrored.

On day 10 started the time of Pipou putting in a crazy amount of effort into modifying maps:

Screenshot Screenshot Screenshot

Adrenaline 5, an absolutely insane and insanely faily map, was cut by Pipou into two parts with kill tiles being replaced with teleport tiles. Initially we had the map released in its entirety on December 10, but after realizing that it was too long, cut it into two parts and released the second part a week later. This required adding a finish tile using gdb on the already running servers, so that players could finish in the middle of the map already. Thanks to heinrich5991 for helping out with this.

On day 11 we played Tinyhold, a shrunk down version of the most popular Brutal map Stronghold

Screenshot Screenshot

Our next variation was day 13 with AiP-Bores, a variation of the popular Gores map AiP-Gores with larger tiles as well as hookable swapped with unhookable and in reverse.

Screenshot Screenshot

On day 15 we got Not Really Yo’Ci, an easier variation of the Insane map Yo’Ci.

Screenshot Screenshot

On day 16 this was followed by 2 Days in the back, another easier variation, this time of Back in the days 2.

Screenshot Screenshot

On day 18 Arctic Festivity made an entrance as an easier Arctic Frost variation with special presents. Thanks to Voxel for helping Pipou out here!

Screenshot Screenshot

On day 19 we got xyzyx, a modified version of the classic xyz_ddrace2 with telegun weapon.

Screenshot Screenshot

On day 21 our testing co-leader Ravie came out with Slippy Slide Up his slippery variation of one of the most popular Novice maps, Sunny Side Up.

Screenshot Screenshot

Knuski and Patiga then delivered the present of run_guys_25 on December 23, making the classic run_guy_25 more interesting, large and team-playable!

Number of Finishes

Let’s compare the number of finishes against how the map did before December 1, and for modified maps how the original map did in that time:
