Show posts for all products, not just Chivalry: Complete Pack
Community Announcements - Postpwn
Welcome one and all to the Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Contest. Torn Banner and Polycount have drawn up some battle plans and we’d like to invite you all to the fight.

To do battle in this contest, you won’t be crossing swords or banging heads on the field of battle. At least not right away. We will be needing your blacksmith skills to provide the swords and maces for the battles to come. Helmets are needed as well to keep some of the axes from finding a home in a skull or two. Strong irons and stout woods will be used to craft the items that can survive the killing fields and the judging.

For full details, visit the contest page at:

On March 3rd, 2014, Torn Banner Studios announced the Fortification Map Contest— a competition awarding over $25,000 in prize money and a chance to have your map added to Chivalry: Medieval Warfare as official game content. The enthusiastic response from the modding community was inspiring. Over 45 maps were submitted over the course of the contest's three months, with many submissions exceeding expectations of creativity and polish. As a result, Torn Banner Studios has decided to award five winners a cash prize and an official spot in the game rather than the originally planned three.

And the winners are....on the contest page! Go check it out!


Website Link

All of us at Torn Banner were very impressed with the amount of quality maps that have been created. Although the contest may now be over, we’ve decided to leave it open ended for an indefinite period of time, so as not to let all that hard work, passion, and determination go to waste. From here on out, any Team Objective map that Torn Banner deems worthy of acceptance into the official release of Chivalry will be awarded with $1000. We will be posting the feedback from our judging playtests to help nudge map creators towards a bit more polish and balance in their levels. We will be looking to the community for help in providing feedback for map creators. We will keep the custom map servers to help aid in this effort. We may also consider adding maps that support other game modes in the future.

  • New health and stamina bars with two states to indicate amount of damage taken
  • New header that shows on spawn, detailing team progress and objectives, and has a timer in it
  • “Killed by” pop-up upon dying, shows who killed you, your kills vs. enemy kills, and enemy’s remaining health. This will distinguish Team kills.

  • HUD scales similarly to CDW, but the chat scales at a slower rate and caps out at a higher size
  • New Rank Up notification

  • Switched History and Favourites functionality out for Steamworks' API which should improve reliability. It also greatly improves their speed as the game doesn’t have to fetch the entire server list just to get the servers you’re interested in. As well, Favourite servers now show up in the Steam client’s “Servers” window as a result, so that’s something.

Hear ye, hear ye, oh noble Lords and Ladies of the Chivalry Community.

The entry period to the Fortification Team Objective Map Contest has come to a close today. Over 45 maps featuring peasant killing, king slaying, town pillaging, ballista shooting, and all other sorts of medieval mayhem have been submitted for a chance to bring home the grand prize of $10,000 USD.

45 maps. That is crazy! All of us here at Torn Banner are incredibly excited to see such an awesome turnout for the contest, and have really enjoyed seeing the progess that content creators have made in these few short months.

Over the next few weeks, all the contenders will be in rotation on the custom map servers dedicated to the contest. Make sure to join a server in your region. There are specific testing times in which we encourage people to not only play these awesome maps, but to also give feedback to the map creators in their forum thread. We will be awarding the super rare peasant hat model to playtesters who post constructive criticism in the contestants feedback thread.

Official testing times are:
Wednesday: 3-6 PM EST
Friday: 3-6 PM EST
Sunday: 3-6 PM EST


We will be testing and judging in the official custom content servers over the next few weeks anonymously with the community. During this time, you are allowed to make tweaks, adjustments, and updates to your map at your own risk. If the map isn't functional when play-tested, it will be disqualified from the contest.


Best of luck to the contestants, and we’ll see you on the Fortification Map battlefields!


Full list of entrants:

P.S. All the lords and ladies who submitted a map for the contest by the deadline will receive a peasant hat as well.
