I have the feeling that this time there could be a lot of medival-themed maps :/, but the celling looks pretty nice :).

You are not the only one who is not experienced with texturing, I'm also going with allready available texture-sets, I don't know yet how my map will look graphical-wise but I wanted to do something into the dirrection of qztourney7 (Furious Heights). I also won't be under the Top10, but I enjoy slapping brushes together and I did not finish my map in the last NoGhost Comp so I definitely want to get it done this time.

Looking good :), but I would not concentrate on texturising that much perhaps you should first make a alpha version with Items so other players can tell you where your layout has some flaws.

be careful tho, design via committee often ruins the unique fun factor. looking good so far man

Gave it a gander. While I obviously can`t comment on the items yet, I do like the open, freestyle-ish layout you have going here; reminds me of several RA3 Clan Arena maps. The wood and stone Q1 style aesthetic is working nicely, probably the best looking alpha in this competition so far.

I realize clipping is not completely done yet, but there are two areas that I would strongly suggest looking into when you do get into clipping. First, clip the curved bars on those guardrails. Because they`re curved they make player movement awkward when you try to jump off them, due to the collision detection having to calculate more complicated angles. Surrounding those bars with a rectangular prism clip should help solve these issues and allow for easier movement. I`d also clip the windows - some you can jump onto and look out to the bottom of the skybox and see the HOM effect.

I`d also make the jump pads stand out a bit more. I know you`re aiming for a dreary gothic aesthetic, but it`s still important nevertheless to make sure that it`s easy to recognize the essential components of the arena. I found myself missing jump pads sometimes because they blended in so well, and this is just on r_picmip 0; imagine the players who use lower picmips for easier visibility. Perhaps to keep the color scheme and tone, go for a pulsating red glow shader on the jump pads. You`ll keep from breaking the atmosphere but you`ll in turn make it easier to denote jump pads.

Keep up the good work though, this looks like it could score big. It`s nice to see a more open arena in this competition rather than the usual claustrophobic 1-on-1 map. (no offense to those who are making them :) )

Gave it a quick run in cpm-physics. You really should think about making the stairs smaller scale-wise atm it feels like Q1 and that does not fit into cpm and I strongly doubt that it will fit into vq3.
