    Congrats to all the winners.

    I just played a lot of the maps for the first time. I have to say, about Megastructure, my first impression was, WOAH, definitely see why it won. Completely immersive - GJ, Seth

    I still play Pehua, been playing since its release, looking forward to phase two.

    Wow! 3rd place for BeachFront in Warfare \o/! That's much better than I could've hoped! I must admit Version 1.0 was quite dated and had its share of issues (since fixed) :rolleyes:.

    Congratulations to all winners!

    *sigh* Just over 2 years ago $1500 US was worth close to $2 200 Canadian, but now they're worth pretty much the same amount :eek:. C'mon US! Time to heal your economy already! :p

    Psionic Storm is cool, I always liked Psionics for ut2k4. The UT3 version really needs at least one more keybind, though.
