Thats right folks, we're back!

Maptesting will officially start up again this year, better yet, THIS MONTH!
Under the new format there will be two optional aspects to map testing, Quality assurance and Maptesting.

Quality assurance:
Paying high attention to detail around all official and official candidate maps, reporting issues such as geometry holes, misaligned textures, dev textures, occlusion issues, stuck spots, prop misalignments and all the other beautiful mistakes the mappers have made during their thousands of hours of hard work.
These sessions will be held weekly on mondays at 21:00 CET/CEST (15:00 EST/12:00PST)

Maptesting:
We will be playing games on the up and coming maps, providing feedback to the mapper and offering potential solutions/alternates to improve playability of the map/s being tested.
These sessions will be held on the last saturday of the month, every month at 21:00 CET/CEST (15:00 EST/12:00PST)

If you are interested in participating, apply here

    Wow. The rarest badge of all, the map testing badge, will be possible to get again. Map test while you can guys. This is a rare opportunity.
    From my perspective UWE has been trying to both with what little resources they have given to the game. They don't have an AAA budget, let alone an indie game budget. They have the budget of a game that has been out 6 years. I want to say, don't half ass two things, whole ass one thing. I just don't think they have the resources to do it. Unlike many of the people on the forums, I guess I am just happy they are at least trying even though I may not like what they end up doing.

    I will have so many awesome badges that I can't display them all at once. Truly, the gravest of problems.
